For beach & sightseeing

by written on October 1, 2014

Hotel de la Mer has certainly chnaged since I saw it last a few years ago.

Then it was sort of a local old-timer, undisputably belonging to the city and therefore not caring much about its appearance. 'Le gerant' looked like a Rastafari militant, and so did the rooms.

Today it is civilised, tidy, globalised IKEA-type institution with a very accomodating lady at the reception going out of her way for a content customer. She showed me the rooms - one of those looked into the yard, but it was even for the better, not so much noise. There is a bathroom (shower room, it should be called in reality), a double bed, a large window - and basically that's all, the French are economical with hotel space.
The breakfast room is not very spacious either, and needn't be, there aren't more than a dozen rooms, I think.
The interior - you will see it on the site - is mainly in light beige and ecru shades, rather unusual for the region. Everything looks very new and clean; a pleasant surprise overall.

PS
Note: it's first (or second, if you count the ground, too) floor, and there is no lift

Unique Quality: Location: between Masséna and Promenade, cannot be better.
Amicable staff

Directions: Airport bus #98:
get off at Opera, go straight back 100 m. See Apollo fountain? The hotel looks at his rear parts
Train & tram:
