This is absolutely the best way to get the real vibe of a place, and generally (especially in this case) much less expensive than a hotel. We had a studio apartment in Old Nice,with a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, double bed plus double sofa bed, a hallway with tons of closet space, and lots of room and most importantly, atmosphere.
Walking into the marble entry, with our bags of fresh veggies, pate, cheese, wine and baguettes really gave the feeling of being part of the old town.
One star means exactly that - nothing fancy but a charming traditional belle epoche building and a super location ideal for all tranport connections shopping and access to the attractions of Nice and beyond.
Family run, ideal for really tight budget or student.
Low cost for a really handy location.
40 euro a night for single, 49 for double, for room with wc and shower
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.
This sweet Hotel is just outside of Nice in nearby Grasse.
It is situated on a Mountain top giving the hotel guests a wonderful view of the city of Grasse beyond!
The location is great, you save a bit by not being right in Nice, but there is easy access to all the major highways and wonderful cities and towns outside of Nice that are worth a visit!
We really enjoyed our stay. Only one thing I must mention, we were obligated to purchase breakfast with our hotel room even if we didn't want to eat breakfast at the hotel!!! The price for Breakfast is 7 Euros per person, it included a small baguette and a croissant per person with jams and various other spreads coffee, tea and juice.
The owners are warm, friendly, and quite helpful.
The location is amazing! The fresh mountain air will surely wake you up on any morning!
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).
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 rented a 2 room apartment on the side street just off Promenade des Anglais, next to Negresco. It came really cheap as the owners were our friends from Poland.
The apartment had the best location I could imagine. It couldn't get any better :-)
On top of Eze, with fabulous views of the ocean and the surrounding towns. None of the rooms are alike, and all professionally decorated. Extremely luxurious, even the junior rooms!
The best view on Earth! As well, a fantastic pool, great local walking, beautiful gardens, and romantic rooms!
We stayed in a cheap, budget hotel quite close to the station. I can't remember the name or even the street, though I do remember there was a pizzeria next door. We were very lucky in that our room, on the top floor, had a balcony overlooking the street, and it was a nice place to sit out and have dinner or drink wine. The hotel itself wasn't amazing but it was in a safe, central location and was very good value.
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.
One Word -" AMAZING " This hotle sinifies all the royalty & luxury you can think of. You just feel to be in a wonderland for a while. Its a real luxorious hotle & fi you wana spend your saved money for a real great time , then this should be it. I rate is as the best Chateau Hotel in the world & if one day i will have money i will definately stay there.
Nice Courteous Staff
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.
Single room: 200 to 270 Francs (Approx. 30 to 41 Euro).
Double room: 225 to 325 Francs (Approx. 34 to 49 Euro).
Breakfast: 29 Francs (Approx. 4 Euro).
Camping Le Moulin Nou at Gilette-sur- Estéron is only 15 minutes away from Nice and is located at road D2209.
Swimmingpool! And the river Estéron runs next to the campground at Route de Carros (Pont Charles Albert) 06830 Gilette. Four star campground. You get your own set of chairs and table with your tent / caravan. For eich campplace there is water and electricity.
My brother at the pool of campground Moulin Nou. The pool is open from 10.00 till 20.00 (10 am till 8 pm).
