We arrived at the hotel around 11pm from Vintmille. The location was perfect as its just a 10 minute walk from Nice train station. The hotel is situated perfectly along the main street which has telecom shops and other shopping areas which are just 10 minutes away.
We were welcomed by a guy who doesn't smile but since we were prebooked, checking in was easy. Heading to the elevator, there was a bad smell which has the odor of a dead rat. We really don't know what was going on but we definitely sure they're repairing something.
Entering the room and along the hallway, foul smell was gone. The room was clean and neat. The toilet was separated from the bath and the huge window would overlook the old french buildings. Free wifi was available however there was a charge for the breakfast which we did not avail anymore. If they'll have friendlier staff next time, we'll probably go back again.
Great location and free WIFI
Absolutely great, in fact, actually better than shown in advert.
I will positively recommend it, in fact, already did!
Location – in a side lane, next to the main street. Well-connected and healthy – the main street is pedestrian save the modern eco-friendly tram. Both beach and railway station within 10 minutes’ walk. Monoprix shopping-centre across the street – the only big food-store in Nice centre I know to close as late as 9 p.m.; traditional bakery around the corner.
Period building with recent renovation. This means a place with a character, at the same time all fittings new. Lift goes all the way from the ground to the upper floor – this is not always the case in Europe. Walls a good meter thick – no air-conditioning necessary even in summer. High ceiling – a lot of space in mezzanine.
Apartment equipped with all sorts of useful little things, like clothespins or salt and pepper, even a good supply of tea and coffee. Three (!) sets of wine glasses, and a complimentary well-chosen bottle of rosé. The owners are very amiable and thoughtful and do their best to make you stay comfortable.
I stayed for five nights in a triple room on the fourth floor in August of Comte de Nice Hotel. The room was small and the bathroom was extremely cramped. But the real problem was that the building was preheated much during the day and the room was extremely stuffy, airless. We could not sleep. Even a fan switched at night did not help much. Also, my bed was too short. I think if someone wants to stay there, good localisation, you should rent a studio in the ground floor.
This is very central, right behind Nice Etoile shopping centre, about 500 m from the sea

Never been inside, though :)
We rented a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in the Muscian's Quarter of Nice - the company we delt with was very helpful. The Apartment was clean, had every thing we needed and was furnished in the most beautiful French style.
Location. Clean, quite and fabulous
We loved our stay at this hotel, It was within walking distance from the station ,shopping centres, and old Nice town. The hotel was also two blocks back fro the Promenade de Anglais, were we spent a lot of time, over all a lovely hotel.
The hotel had a lovely garden, you could sit and read and relax,the reception staff were very nice and went out of their way to help with any questions.
We spent five (5) nights in the Hôtel Goldstar, touring and walking around Nice with a day–trip to Monaco.
The Goldstar is four blocks from the beach. Its suites are without views, but nicely furnished. The "Consul" suites, one of four types, have a bedroom and sitting room (which may be closed off), a small kitchen, a bath and a separate room for the commode.
The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Promenade des Anglais, a pedestrian shopping mall, and many decent restaurants.
Reception clerks speak English and the entire staff is friendly and helpful.
There is ample underground parking at the hotel.
There's a partially enclosed swimming pool on the roof, with chaise lounges for enjoying the Mediterranean sun. The hotel also has a well-equipped exercise room.
There's no restaurant, but an ample breakfast is served on the 6th floor -- at an exorbitant cost of 20€ (US$24) per person.
Uniquely, among the hotels we stayed in during this visit, there is no injunction against smoking in the suites -- but only a request that one not smoke in "public areas." There was an ashtray in our suite.
Room service is available 24/7. Its cost is high: 74€ (US$89) for two plates of pasta and soft drinks.
There's an in-rom safe plus abundant closet space.
There's free wifi throughout the hotel as well as a high-speed computer, also free, in the small business center area.
I spent 3 nights here in Feb 2008. It was a very reasonable €35 per night. They also added 70 cents per night tax. Not much but it's better not to be surprised when they charge it. I enjoyed my stay. It was clean and quiet and a short walk to Nice's main street. It's also quite close to the railway station. The street that it's on seems a little bit rough but I didn't have any problems.
Said to have an effusion of "ballrooms, loggias and bowed galleries" the Hotel Excelsior Regina Palace is named in honor of Queen Victoria. At one time, it was also headquarters for artist, Henri Matisse, who spent his last days here after World War II.
Although we did not have time to explore the inside of this staid hotel, it does bring to mind a finer age of travel. Nearby stands a statue dedicated to Queen Victoria (pic #2).
I recommend to stay in vacation apartment more than in hotel in France. Let's see my recommendaiton:
- more space (large white L -shaped leather sofa),
- LCD TV with many TV channels
- LCD monitor computer and free internet
- big refrigerator to put food from supermarket
- kitchen and equipment for cooking
- dish washing machine
- clothes washing machine in toilet
It's a real French life experience, home feel
Artist's home, seems enter into an Art world. Location is easy going to ville centre, restaurants, shopping, tramway.
This small hotel and charming waterfront were so relaxing compared to Nice. Walk to any number of restaurants, walk to the beach and walk up to the train stop and travel to Monte Carlo or Nice. Buses also stop to Nice which is just a short trip.
Ambience, proximity to restaurants and waterfront. Bar, balconies. reasonable price. If you go here in the summer do not miss Bastille day where the boats come in and they throw flowers and have a big dance at the castle on the hill. Everyone is invited. If you come in summer be prepared that the one negative is the air conditioning in this hotel was weak. I went and bought a fan and that solved my problem. I left the fan so ask the manager for a fan for your room.
If you look for a small cheap self-catering flat I can recommend www.nizza-ferienwohnung.com.
We stayed for 3 nights. Its very convenient to the main train station.The staff are very friendly and all can speak English and Italian. Rooms are basic but clean and quiet if you can get one that faces onto the inner courtyard.
I think that its the second cheapest and best value hotel in Nice given its location. This accounts for why it always appears to be full (complet) so book ahead. a single room with a bath was 33 euros with a double 50
For our 4 day duration in Nice, we stayed in an apartment as opposed to a hotel. Again, this is the best thing for a traveller to do. Our apartment was beautiful, spacious, clean, and more than we could have expected! The wonderful owners provided us with lots of extra pillows, bathing items like scented soaps, towels, and even things like tea and olive oil!
The apartment also had a balcony, which we loved to sit on and watch people walk by on the warm summer nights. The apartment had a foyer, two bedrooms, storage room (which contained a queen mattress, two beach chairs and sun umbrellas, umbrella for the rain and other handy things), full kitchen, washroom w/ shower (good shower too!), dining room and living room! Hardly roughing it, but was actually very affordable. If I ever went back to Nice, I would not give a second thought as to staying here. Simply fantastic.
As I said above, this place has everything an upscale apartment would. The best feature again has to be the balcony. There are two, one where there were clothes lines so we could hang our laundry (the apartment has a washer, but no dryer). The other balcony wraps around the building. Although not very wide, it's big enough to set a chair outside.
The apartment costs $1100 USD a week ($1216 CAD) and has a 3 night minimum stay. For four girls, that came to $39.29 USD a night!
On the website, it is property # 61706
We have never had any difficulty finding a short term apartment to rent. Amongst the many advantages are the ability to deal direct with the owner, to share accommodation of 2 or more bedrooms and to enjoy often spacious accommodation at a fraction of the price you might pay at a hotel.
Two sites we have found very useful and where you can book on-line are:
Both sites include accommodation throughout Europe and elsewhere.
