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.

Tiny room, dark hallway

The location is good but the room is tiny, dark hallway, bathroom not clean

    This is not so much a review of the hotel, but of an experience that greatly soured my trip to Nice. I had rented a car with Avis through this website. I was told I was to be charged CAD $403 for the car I rented through Expedia instead I was charged $1,544.99 upon return... quite a disparity. I will think twice!
