A pleasant stay at Universe Hotel in Nice

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 2, 2015

The hotel generally satisfied me thanks to its very convenient location just in the center (1 min. walk to a number of city tram and bus stops, 5 min. walk to the ancient area and the beach, 5 min. walk to the direct airport bus 98, 15 min. walk to the railway station - I enjoyed walking rather than taking any transport! ), the English/Italian/Russian and what-ever-language speaking and friendly staff, a cosy and very clean room, a comfortable interior, a tasteful breakfast with a wide variety of snacks and drinks. The hotel also offers a room safe, TV, telephone and free Wi-Fi. So, almost everything was excellent except for a little shower cabin and thin walls, although the hotel is quiet and calm, as I could clearly hear the neighbours' talks and TV shows in the evening. Nevertheless, the latter not at all spoiled my stay and I would be glad to come and stay there again.

A great rip-off, worst value for money ever

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 15, 2009

The only quality of this hotel, where we stayed in July 2007, is to be located in the center of Nice,close to Place Massena and the old quarters of Nice. The hotel advertises itself as having multilingual staff but the receptionist spoke very little French and, above all, was very unpleasant.
We were given room 206 (AVOID AT ALL COST) a cubicle where we had to manoeuvre carefully around the bed to get to the room's window. The TV was not opposite the bed as would be expected but screwed 2 meters high on a side wall. To watch it, we had to lie sideways on the bed with our head at the foot of the bed. Unfortunately, watching TV happened to be our main activity that night as the air-conditioning device would let out screeching sounds every 20 minutes and the room walls were so thin we could hear the next door guest snoring.
The minuscule bathroom allowed us nevertheless to have a cheap trip to the Niagara falls as
there was no shower curtain and no shelves to put toilet sets away so that everything got soaking wet, including the toilet paper.
To crown it all, when we checked out the following morning and complained about our misadventures, the receptionist, an obnoxious little brat, told me in a contemptuous manner, “well Madam, you are on the Riviera”, meaning we should be grateful for paying €94 for a piece of sh*t.

Unique Quality: I can't see any qualities to this hotel apart from its location near the town center

Directions: not far from Place Massena
