8/10 Very good

Overall decent place to stay
Excellent price for a great hotel location - 5-minute walk from the station- and 15-minute walk to the beach and old town. Funky hotel design and room vibes. Comfortable bed but not a fan of the soft pillows. I was at first annoyed I was given a 1st floor room facing the street when I had asked for a quiet room but excellent double glazed windows meant I heard no street noise. Only noise I did hear were some guests outside their doors talking late at night and my husband told them to shush. Great Wifi. Excellent water pressure in the shower but no bath floor towel?! And the handle of our bathroom door was broken. Very friendly check-in.

The only staff was nice and help me call other hotel after he mentioned the AC for the rooms are not working. What surprised me was he said Expedia knows this from a month ago but I don't recall any note regarding the Faulty Air condition otherwise I would not book at all.

Disaster- Avoid this place
Arrived at 9pm to be told at reception they were full. Despite having booked in advance and paid in full, we were told with a shrug that it was's fault for overbooking. No hotels in the area left so we had to pay 400EUR for a night in a horrible hostel. When we told to try and get our money back they said they would contact Villa Bougainville to confirm they cancelled the reservation. Apparently, the hotel denied that this happened. We only got our money back because gave us a "one time exception" refund.

4/10 Fair

Staffs are kind and welcoming! The location was okay close to Villa Nice station but I felt a bit unsafe in night... I would understand the current situation but breakfast was very poor, my room was super small and air conditioner is not working properly so that I could not sleep well. Overall I was disappointed as I expected the hotel as a 4 stars hotel.

6/10 Good

The location, close to the train station, was good for us. The room was a little small but okay, The room colours were extreme, very dark and not to our taste. The breakfast area is too small, and the food was adequate but certainly nothing special. The young lady who checked us in was exceptionaly pleasant and helpful. She was, by far, the best part about the property.

Villa Bouganville is nicely photographed online. Do not fall for the trendy wallpaper and decor, that is all this place has to offer. Cleanliness of hotel was disappointing and location was not ideal. This hotel I can see being well suited for young travelers on summer vacation. Not suitable for couples looking for more comfortable conditions and amenities. Also note they do not offer queen beds if you are a couple it is two two twin beds pushed together with a shared sheet. The hotel is also located next to train tracks and was often noisy at night. This might only apply to rooms located with street view. Another frustrating aspect was on multiple occasions staff would open our door after one quick knock before we could let them in. Luckily we were always fully dressed, but it was disturbing and never any reason to enter. We were confused by this. With all Nice has to offer, look elsewhere. On a positive note the reception staff was pleasant and they held our bags for several hours after check out while we explored the city more until our evening flight.
