6/10 Good

Location is spot on. 5 mins to Jean Medecin tram stop, seafront and flower market. Lots of bars and restaurants in close waking distance too! Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is relatively clean and the beds are very comfy. However, the shower floods the bathroom (and our bathroom door did not close) and the AC is not very powerful. The breakfast is fairly limited and needs to be stocked up a bit quicker. But for a great location and somewhere to sleep, it’s great

8/10 Very good

Plus: luggage storage with badge access Minus: deskfront didn’t know about the 2 hour early check-in and out and gave us 1.5 hours after discussion. Irritating since we booked the place for this reason… Also negative: no shower door or curtain. Very difficult to shower without making everything wet.

Perfect location
It was perfectly located, right near the square and very close to everything. We had room for 4 people - with 4 single beds, which is good. As not all hotels provide that. Very clean with nice bathroom. The only minus was that it was a bit humid in the room, i guess because of aricondition.

6/10 Good

The hotel is ideally located in the main part of Nice. The tram from the airport drops you at the Jean Medecin stop, the hotel is located about 100m away by the corner of Ave Jean Medecin and Rue de la Liberte, diagonally opposite the Galleries Lafyette. It's walking distance to both old Nice and the beach. Staff are very pleasant and although the check in time is 3.00pm, when we called in at 1.30pm to ask if they had a room where we could leave our bags while we got some lunch, as our room was already prepared, they let us check in straight away. Unfortunately, our double room was particularly small and whoever designed the room layout must have been using a very strange scale rule as the furnishings were particularly large for a room of that size, the furniture arrangement particularly poor. A super king sized bed (which was very clean and comfortable) plus an oversized wardrobe, dressing table unit and suitcase stand meant that there was no room to move around without either closing a wardrobe door or my wife shifting around to let me pass. The distance between the bed and dressing table was around 8" to 10". The ensuite shower room is adequate, although again, a very small shower. We had some noisy neighbours one side and on a couple of occasions I had to bang on the wall to keep them quiet as we could hear them talking quite loud at both 6.00am and late at night. The bathroom had a strong smell of drains which they improved slightly when we mentioned it to reception.
