3-star hotel-not the best 3 star
It was just ok. But for a 3 star in France, I guess it's what you get for the money you pay. Now, the location was excellent, it's a 5 min walk to promenade and beaches and shopping avenue - good for when you have to lug lots of beach stuff to the beach. We asked for an ice bucket and had to go down to the moldy basement to see if there were any among the dirty linens and laundry area, guests should not be going in this area at all!! The ice machine is the size of a toaster located in the moldy basement too. We were able to have ice, but nothing to put it in, luckily I had an extra zip lock bag! If more than 3 rooms needed ice, they would not be able to give any more than 3 people ice at a time in the whole hotel. The rooms don't have a fridge so ice buckets would have been the next best thing, but they did not have any buckets in the whole hotel for us. The a/c worked well in the room, but not in the hallways. Not ideal for couples looking for a romantic getaway. I would not stay here again. Sorry!

Easy to find when you get off the bus on the promenade which you can get from airport or the more centrally located train station and at a fantastic location. 5 mins to the beach and old town. For the price it's difficult to find many hotels in a more convenient location. The single room I was put in was very small with a tiny bathroom but all very functional and more importantly, clean. The bed was fine and the air conditioning ensured I had a decent nights sleep. Luckily my room was at the end of the small hallway and obviously at the back of the hotel so it was also quiet, the one downside of this was there was literally NO view, unless you count the wall and window of the adjacent building. However as I was only there to sleep, shower etc...for me, this wasn't really a deal breaker If facilities are a primary concern you may need to look elsewhere, but also be prepared to pay more. However, if you want somewhere clean and simple, that is little more than somewhere comfortable to sleep/freshen ....and you intend to spend as much time as possible OUT of the hotel and in the old town or beach where location is a top priority. I can recommend this hotel

Fair 4.0
Well, my wife and I had booked to stay at hotel 66 in Nice through your site and after we circled for 15 minutes or so looking for parking, we finally found something that was pretty far away. It was roughly 10:30pm and dark by this point. We lugged all our bags from the car to the hotel, really looking forward to getting a hot shower and bed, after driving most of the day. On top of it, my wife’s pregnant so I really wanted to get her into a room. We get there and they tell us that they’re sold out. So immediately I’m frustrated as is my wife. After discussing for a little while, we sit in the lounge with all of our stuff and I try to find a new spot. The hotel clerk cancels my previous reservation and I find hotel univers. To get here, we must go back to our car with all of our stuff, and move the car, and repeat the process all over again. Which we do. It’s pretty late by now. First smell walking in is of sewage. We both hold our breath while checking in, or I know my wife will be sick. We get to our room and it was fine. Not quite what it had looked like in the ad. The bathtub/shower was grimy and stained so showering was ruled out. We slept then left in the morning. Pretty un great.

Good location, that’s about it.
Well priced and Well located I would give it more of 2 stars based on my room. The check in was ok, but not too friendly and check out was borderline rude. The elevator was fine. To get to the room I needed to use the flashlight on my camera it was so dark. The room was ok size for what I paid, but no windows only a skylight. Also had eaves on one side so difficult to walk in that area. It was a top floor room. On the wall at one point I found a spider. Wi-fi was spotty, but I found that true in many hotels. Bathroom not that great, difficult to take a shower the way it was set up the shower head was difficult to aim away from the entry point. Overall it was safe and well located close to massena tram, but I couldn’t wait to leave, most of all because of the unfriendliness of reception. I never tried the breakfast.

Nice trip
First I want to say the staff was fantastic. When I checked in the air conditioning wasn't working in the room so they immediately moved me to a different room. The location is one block away from Masenna Place and an easy walk to go out to dine . I ended up getting sick on this trip and the young fellow working the desk called a Dr for me and had the Dr come to the hotel . This was amazing in itself but it also happened to be on a national holiday . I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that. The same fellow called the taxis driver and had him come back to the airport as I left my phone in the taxis. The rooms are old but I would recommend this hotel over similar priced hotels in the area . You get what you pay for so dont expect anything fancy but the people were great . Internet is slow
