Ideal Nice Hotel
Review from threetuns48 from UK on Trip Advisor
14th June 2013
This hotel is very convenient for most of the tourist areas of Nice and the Cote d'Azur. It is within walking distance of the old town, the sea and main promenade and main shopping streets. Only about 100m from the tram stops (Massena) giving easy access to the main train station (Nice Ville) and towards the old town & port area. We booked a Privilege room but e-mailed the hotel prior to travelling asking for a balcony. On checking in we were told we had been upgraded to room 519. The whole hotel was very clean and the staff very professional ,smart & helpful - indeed they checked flight details during the recent air traffic control strike for us. Breakfast had a good choice of foods and drinks, all on a self service basis. There is free WiFi but we did not use it. Getting from & to the airport was simple. Catch bus 99 which drops you off in a side road by the station. Go back to the main road (20m)
and walk down to the tram stop (100m) Use nearest platform and get tram (2 stops).Cross over tracks and walk by side of Galeries Lafayette for about 60m.Hotel on left hand side. Word of warning - most travel books mention bus/tram fares as 1euro (4 euros to and from airport on express bus) These have been increased by 50% to 1.50 euros & 6 euros but still good value.The fare system can be confusing. Many trains to Monaco(Monte Carlo); Antibes & Cannes together with intermediate stops.
Friendly and helpfull staff. Nice buffet breakfast.
Very good location in the citycentre.
We can recommand this hotel to every body.

Stayed here for a couple of nights in July. Great hotel. Friendly service. Great location. Beach rights at Ruhl beach club was a great way to relax. Free Breakfast was sufficient. Would not hesitate to recommend or stay again.

Staff were great upon arrival! Helpful & got us in early. Rooms were spacious & clean. Location was very close to the old town centre & not too far from the main strip in Nice. We didn't stay long enough for breakfast but the set up look good.

This hotel is located within walking distance of many sights, public transportation, shopping, and restaurants; approx 2 blocks to tram and shopping. Within walking distance of "old town" and flower market. Public rooms and our hotel room were very clean; beds were comfortable. Buffet breakfast was extensive; a good deal if included with your room. Otherwise walk to the patisserie 1/2 block away. The staff of this hotel all spoke very good English and were very helpful answering all types of questions. We were travelling with a group and had wonderful service. I would definitely return to this hotel.
