    Very friendly staff and great location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Walking distance from the train station as well as to the beach, old town, and castle hill. Also in the middle of the main street.

    « 2nd stay. Good value for money. »

    Stayed last year and stayed again for 6 nights. Location central on corner of main street on tram line. Easy 10 min stroll from Nice railway station and easy walk to shopping/ beach/Promenade Anglais. Refurbishments have been done since last stay. Shower over bath. Bathroom could be updated but very clean. Coffee making facilities in room. bed comfortable. Breakfast excellent. Good coffee machine. Staff delightful & very helpful with information re.area/transport etc.English excellent. Easy to get to Cannes, Monte Carlo via regional train. Inexpensive. Petit Train in Nice is good value & takes you up to Castle-fantastic view of Nice.1 hour long trip.

    This is an older hotel and a little tired. However an excellent package. Fantastic location, can walk anywhere. Staff very pleasant. Hotel is kept very clean and the beds comfortable. In context hard to beat.

    « Excellent value & great location. »

    We found the hotel online at a very reasonable price for central Nice, so we went in to register & were given a slightly higher price, the charming receptionists offered to match the online price & to include breakfast! We had a room at the front with a balcony (ear plugs necessary) We would certainly recommend this hotel & would happily stay there again!

    Room okay balcony over looking the main avenue. Staff brilliant could not fault them. 10 min. walk to the beach. the land train is a good way to see parts of Nice. the old town is worth a good stroll around.

    « Good value accommodation in the heart of Nice »

    Stayed here for six nights recently in a standard twin room. Hotel lobby is small and the lift is very small also. Lobby is nicely decorated and staff were always friendly and helpful. Our room was small but it was adequate and was always cleaned very well. The interior of the room I was in could benefit from updating. The bed felt new and comfortable however the other furniture including desk mirror and chair were old and tired. Carpet was a dark brown colour also which could do with modernising. Sound proofing between other rooms and the corridor was not very good but it is an old building and I did not mind. As this hotel is just off the main shopping street in Nice I would recommend ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. In general a comfortable and friendly hotel. Very good value for the money paid. Breakfast also was very good , especially the eggs and croissants. Would stay here again if on a budget .

    « Ok for the money »

    Hotel in a fairly good location being halfway between seafront and train station ( still a bit of a walk after an evening out in Old Town) Upon arrival reception staff were very welcoming and spoke good English which was a good start, but looking around- the lobby area was very small with just a sofa and chairs with the exception of a small side lounge which also had a couple of sofas which were too low to the ground to sit on. Our bedroom was a bit of a shock as it was in real need of modernisation , the carpet had stains on and the bathroom although clean had seen better days ( don't forget to bring your own hairdryer as the one supplied fitted to the wall is ancient and too hot to actually handle). The tea and coffee making facilities were sparse with no proper milk, just cream (?) for tea, only one teabag and not even a real teaspoon- just a stick ( we had to go to supermarket over the road to buy teabags and Milk) We were very shocked to find that breakfast was going to cost 12.50 euros daily each so decided to give that a miss (if this is a budget hotel then it should be budget price). Having a balcony, it would have been nice to place two chairs out to sit on but the room only had one. Upside was (thankfully) the bed was very comfortable and clean. Unfortunately our weather wasn't great for our 5 day visit and lying on the bed wasn't a great option but we would have been grateful for a nice lounge area to have 'real' tea or coffee. We weren't completely dissatisfied but this just made us realise that essentially you get what you pay for and this hotel is really only budget accommodation, and next time it will be worth paying that little bit more to get a few extras. Despite all this I would recommend to anyone just staying as a base for a night or two.

    « Excellent location, Very Well Kept, Efficient and Friendly Staff »

    Nice hotel (pun intended) located right on the Tram line to the beach front, shopping areas and Boulevades des Anglais. A MonoPrix grocery store is across the street. Laundromat is within walking distance. The lobby area is on two levels. A good meeting place. A small elevator (4 floors), but stairs are wide and easily walked. Friendly staff, manager was attentive. He met us upon arrival and when we left. Rooms are OK, by European standards. Bed comfortable. Our room had a small desk. There was in-room coffee, free internet which was fairly fast and easy to get to. (no password). The bathroom was fine. Room service was OK, but they did fail to resupply all of the coffee supplies. We had small balcony overlooking the front on the hotel (3rd floor). Air conditioning and air circulation was good. An excellent hotel for visiting Nice.

    Stayed here for my 4th time now and is improving every time I come back. Staff are very nice and friendly and good at what they do. The beds are new and are very comfortable and there is tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. Close to Promenade de Anglaise, old town and the port. As a single traveller always feel safe.

    « Nice in Nice(FR) »

    Travelers bound for Nice,the Riviera city on the Mediteranean,need to book a room here.The 50 room hotel is located on a corner facing the busy, auto -free Avenue Medecin, whose broad lanes host a steady stream of trams,which can take you to the awesome Promenade des Anglais,a palm studded multi lane beachside boulevard which runs several miles. The hotel has rooms with balconies on the upper floors,(3,4) and high ceilings. Some have refrigerators,but no desk.The rooms seem large for a typical European hotel. Prices vary due to season and day,but can be in the 100-150 euro range,which includes a nice breakfast buffet.The location is next to a large supermarket,and department store,and on the side streets are many shops and cafes. A short walk will bring you to the memorial set up for the victims of the truck terrorist,who mowed down 84 people on the Promenade last May. It is moving with hundreds of teddy bears,flowers and remembrances. The hotel has a lounge with a computer,newspapers in the small lobby and can park 6 cars in front of the entrance.The staff is helpful.The elevator is very small,two with luggage is the max,but any delays are short,unless a tour group has checked in.With a good location,clean reasonable rooms,make this your Nice base of operations.

    It's that simple. It's a great hotel with great staff in a great location in the center of Nice. Clean and fresh, nice friendly staff (and they speak great english!), and the Internet work great. We serve breakfast but we didn't try it. We will be back next time in Nice.

    « OK location, close to old city, but construction behind the hotel starts at 0630 »

    The hotel is modest, 3-person elevator, adequate breakfast, pleasant staff at the desk. The biggest problem is that there is building renovation immediately behind the hotel that started, loudly, between 0600 and 0630 weekdays. Rooms on the road side were noisy from traffic despite double-glazed windows. Best suitable for budget travelers who bring silicone ear plugs.

    My wife and I stayed for three nights and were very pleased with our stay. The hotel is ideally placed to the shops and only a short walk to the old town, beach and restaurants. The manager and his staff are great and extremely helpful, recommending where to visit. Breakfast was very nice with a large selection and variety, well stocked and fresh. The room was nice and clean and quiet considering its close proximity to the high street.

    « Ideally placed »

    2minute walk from station don't get a taxi rip off 15€ first mistake made. Hotel clean and comfortable. Staff excellent especially Elena she seem to be their when ever we walked through reception. Breakfast not extensive but adequate although there seemed a lack of English breakfast tea both in the restaurant and in the room. On Main Street well placed for shops and bars/restaurants.

    « Clean, convenient and friendly hotel »

    We stayed at the New York late in August for a short break. It's in an ideal location, being a short walk from the old town and from the station. The rooms are a bit small but are about right for the price and location. The staff were really helpful and friendly and arranged an airport shuttle for us for a reasonable rate. They speak very good English!

    « Good location. »

    My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights on a B&B basis and have no complaints at all - except 1 - later! Staff were all very helpful and nothing was any bother. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh and kept well stocked so there were no shortages, and rooms were clean and comfortable. Although it is well situated in a busy area we did not experience any noise problems at all. Only complaint is having to pay 14 euros per night for parking. In my opinion parking should be free for residents.

    « Good value for the price paid! »

    - central location, directly on the main shopping street and just 5 minutes walking distance to the train station, tram stop is also only a few minutes away - very nice staff, extremely friendly & helpful, provided us with information and bus schedules - wifi is available free of charge in the hotel although we did not have great access to it in our room, in the lobby it worked perfectly fine - 6 parking spots available, so make sure to mention it before arriving there as the parking was often full - room was relatively small but enough for a couple of days of vacation, we even had a balcony which was great as we could enjoy the nice view in the mornings and evenings - rooms were cleaned quickly & we were happy with it, not 100% clean everywhere (some dust in the bathroom, etc) but for the price it was really okay - so good value-price ratio!

    « Perfect location »

    Stayed here whilst exploring the area round Nice. The location is perfect as it is near the train station and you can get a tram to the bus station from right outside the door. All the staff were pleasant and helpful when asking questions. The rooms and bathrooms are small but functional with comfortable beds. The air conditioning is old and not that effective but was very welcome non the less. Previous reviews have complained about noise but we were just on the corner from the Main Street and I, who usually can't sleep unless it's silent, had no bother at all with the noise and slept really well. Breakfast was all you could want and the scrambled eggs were the best we have ever tasted. Everywhere was spotlessly clean - apart from our balcony which contained 2 rather large toe nail cuttings from the last occupant. They remained there for the 5 day duration of our visit which is not so good, hence only the 4 stars. Overall this hotel was good for a 3 star and great for a place to stay in Nice.

    « Attention to detail is very apparent in the hotel »

    Have just returned from a 9 night stay at the hotel with my wife.The hotel is excellently situated in the city centre and is yet only a few minutes walk from beaches and the Promenade des Anglais. The hotel is very well appointed and the staff are all very friendly and efficient.Breakfast is all that one could ask for - a wide choice of attractive and appetising food.Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we cannot praise them too highly.The hotel was spotless and very comfortable(the air conditioning was much appreciated as the weather was very hot).Our room was spacious and with a balcony that gave a good view onto the main streets but it was not at all noisy thanks to the double glazing.We shall most certainly return.

    « Great rooms at a good price »

    I stayed here with a group of friends during our interrailing trip. The hotel is nicely between the Station and the beach/Old Town. The staff were incredibly friendly and spoke very good English. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and nicely presented. Breakfast was good even if the range isn't huge. The hotel is very quite with it just been of the main street.

    « Excellent Location »

    We stayed here in August and mainly for the price and location. The hotel is situated approx 3-4minute walk from the large shopping centre "Nice Etoile", where you will find lots of brand name stores such as Hollister, C&A, Starbucks L'Occitaine and many more. However, the staff knowledge on the front desk leads a lot to be desired. We asked about the best way to travel to different places and a lot of the time, it would end up in a debate between the two receptionists, then when we interrupted with our idea (after looking up Google), they all agreed with us. As a man, travelling light, I wanted to avail of the complementary shaving kit, so I asked the receptionist and he said that he didn't know what they were and to ask again in the morning. I eventually got it after that third morning when I asked someone else. After a long day of shopping, sightseeing or sunbathing, it would be nice to come back to up your hotel and go in to the bar for a drink before bed....this hotel does not offer this facility. Yes, they do have a bar area but all that's in it, is a basket of the previous morning croissants, pain au chocolat or bread rolls that didn't happen to be eaten at the morning breakfast. This area never has anyone in attendance. It's obvious that they don't have an alcohol licence . However, It would be nice, if they had something like a tea/coffee machine. It's a wasted amenity and an opportunity for extra revenue for the hotel. The elevator is quite small. It only fits 3 people so it can be a struggle if you have luggage. The breakfast area is also quite small. The tables are very close to one another so it's almost impossible to have a private morning conversation with the person that's sitting with you at your table. There are no serving plates left out at breakfast. We had to search in the cabinets ourselves to look for them . The breakfast room is divided into two parts with a dividing door connecting them. But for some reason, there is only food supplied in one of them so this creates a crowd or a queue for food in one room. Some of the time the food would run out and you have have to wait up to 30 minutes for it to be replaced. The food itself wasn't plentiful. There might be only 1 banana for 20-30 guests. On one occasion, I asked if there were any more bananas. The member of staff brought one out in his hand and didn't bother refilling the basket!! Our television wouldn't work in the English speaking channels. When we enquired, the Manager and the receptionist came up to our room for 20 minutes pulling at wires and pressing buttons which was intrusive and unprofessional although we appreciate that they were trying their best to resolve the problem. In the end, they just said we have to call an engineer......this took 3 days!! The parking at the hotel is minimal. There are six places at the front of the hotel...to cater for 50 rooms. The parking, if you are lucky enough to get a place will cost you €14 a day but they do give the option of 3 other venues that are even more expensive. Staff are friendly but any issues are best addressed by contacting the hotel Manager directly Monsieur Stephane d'Halluin. Unlike many hotels I have stayed in, this new Manager of The Best Western, New York, is in almost daily attendance and is eager and willing to resolve any individual issues or grievances. I would give this Manager a score of 5 but for reasons as described above, compared to other hotels I have stayed in, I can only score this hotel 3-4.

    « Happy Overall but needs Attention »

    My son and I stayed in the Best Western New York for 11 nights in August 2016 The hotel's main attraction to guests is its situation in the heart of Nice Etoile's central shopping, dining, sightseeing, beech and is within a 10 minute walk to access transport for exploring outside this beautiful city. The outside of the hotel itself is unimpressive with no seating available if desired and cramped parking facilities for only 6 cars which is not acceptable especially as there's an added charge of €14 per night and a distinct probability that guests may have to resort to nearby car parking lots at an even higher cost per night. Our room was clean but small and sound proofing was inadequate. We could hear noise from the next room when the occupants were quarrelling at 3.30am and woke us up! The air con was barely noticeable by temperature control but was evident in the noise it created especially at night when the tv was off. Tea and coffee facilities were provided but not always replenished and having to ring reception for this was inconvenient and unacceptable. The bathroom was clean and basic but in major need of refurbishment and the corner of our glass shower screen in room 309 had a sharp edge on the bottom right hand corner which I learned to avoid after cutting my hand twice at the start of our stay. Supplied toiletries were basic to extreme with only soap and economy sized shower gels- no complimentary treats as per the usual custom in most hotels of this calibre. On two occasions our basic supplies were not included in the day's cleaning and we had to go to reception to ask for toilet paper and soap, which I found embarrassing and inconvenient. The dining area was small and cramped and at busy times in the mornings we were lining up like kids for our breakfast items. There was a good choice of items but it varied from day to day in supply. On two occasions, at 9am, there were no croissants and we had to wait for 25 minutes for a new batch to cool and be brought out to the baskets. On several mornings there were no bananas and the server would bring out one in his hand and give it to the guest with no plate which was very unprofessional and lazy. There is no toaster "for health & safety reasons" but in most hotels this is not the case and industrial types are available for guests who like toasted items. The best feature and asset to the Best Western New Yew in Nice is its current Manager, Monsieur Stephane d'Halluin with whom we had to meet to address a couple of issues with our own experience during our stay. He was courteous, helpful and apologised for the issues raised and offered us very generous and acceptable gestures of goodwill by way of compensation. We would advise any guest with a particular grievance to ask to speak to this lovely gentleman who will put matters right and provide the reassurance to continue to enjoy a stay at this hotel. We wish him and his staff continued success and very best wishes .

    This hotel just gets better and better. We have been coming to the Best Western New York in Nice for the past 7 years. The front desk staff are always professional and helpful, the rooms are well appointed, the breakfast has lots of choices and the hotel is well situated close to downtown and public transportation. The new management has made some impressive improvements and we will certainly stay there again in the future. Thank you for another great visit!

    « Not a particularly enjoyable experience »

    We had never stayed in a Best Western hotel before, even in the UK. However, we probably wouldn't expect to be paying 117 Euros per night (and that was through booking.com - the price of a room if you turn up without a reservation is 200 Euros per night!!) for what can only be described as a room which was tiny, very basic and in desperate need of modernisation. The walls were paper thin and the floor and room shook every time the neighbouring guests moved around their room. The noise from the street outside was terrible and the bathroom was very run down. The air con is very poor and provides little comfort on a hot night. Thank goodness we were only staying for one night before we caught our flight the following day - it's about all we could have beared.

    « Sorry to say! but Poor! »

    On entering, the reception was very nice and the reception staff were wonderful. Sorry but that is really all I have to say that is positive. The room was tiny and sub standard. The toilet was outdated and very basic although clean. No mini bar, safe..etc. All the stuff you expect when paying €200 a night for a Standard Double room. Worst of all was the noise...sorry but no sound proofing. We could hear everything from the room next door! Loud banging ALL night from the corridor! And everything from outside. It was not a pleasant experience staying here.

    « Outstanding Service, Great location and clean, comfortable rooms »

    We pre booked an apartment on line for 6 nights but stayed for the minimum of two only. We felt grossly deceived by the blurb and images of the online ads for the apartment when we checked in and decided to look for alternative accommodation for the remaining 4 nights. Then we discovered Best Western New York on line and decided to check it out physically. Whilst exploring the options with the receptionist we were joined by a very vibrant, helpful and friendly Nella who led us to view several room options. We had a slight hiccup as the room that we decided on taking was available for only 3 of the 4 nights that we wanted so we went to check out another option nearby as well. It turned out that the latter newly renovated hotel was able to accommodate us for the days we wanted for basically the same price but we were so impressed by Nella's professionalism and efficiency that we decided to accept the slight inconvenience of taking the 3 nights that Nella was able to offer us and then move into the other hotel for the fourth night. Bust as it turned out, we were able to stay the full 4 nights at the Best Western New York. We were pleasantly surprised to discover a bit later that Nella was the hotel's manager as she did not at anytime demonstrate any "airs" about her from the word go. On checking in the next morning an equally friendly, helpful and unassuming gentleman welcomed us and physically took our baggage to store in the baggage room for us as our room was not ready for us as yet having come in early. We discovered that he was the Director of the hotel! That's humility and being hands on. The last 4 days experience with the team at the Best Western New York of our 5 weeks holiday across France left us with a lasting and absolutely positive impression of the great service and friendliness that the French were capable of. Good on you. Keep up the great work. Thai & Claire Cheah

    « Great location for the train and shopping »

    We choose this hotel as its about 7 mins from the train station (walking) it's in the middle of the central street in Nice along with all the great shops and a short walk away some lovely restaurants. We had a slight issue with our pre authorisation and our booking had been cancelled, I re booked at a different rate which did not include breakfast. On arrival I queried why the initial booking had been cancelled and it was because I had put one digit wrong on my initial booking. I mentioned this to the reception team in arrival and it was immediately sorted and I was given the original deal. Great service thank you. Our room was large and considering we were on the Main Street pretty quiet. Breakfast was a typically French lots of meats, cheeses, cereals. A great stay at a reasonable price.

    This hotel is in a perfect location for everything, trams trains and walking. We had a nice room on the front of the hotel with a small balcony and it was lovely to watch what was happening on the streets as it is a busy area. You can walk to the sea front, fantastic market area with restaurants and great atmosphere, the castle and port. We didn't eat at the hotel as the restaurants and shops are on your doorstep. We loved sitting in the big square at night with street performers and in the day the water fountains are fantastic. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly, especially as we had our wallet stolen outside the airport. But we want to go again to this hotel, we had a great time.

    « Nice location »

    Booked a double room and was set up with a room towards the Main Street, quite a lot of noise with deliveries and service of different companies. The beds are very good, and the room was very clean. I missed a safe in the room as well as a small fridge. Also the wifi was very annoying as you have to log on every time you use your phone or computer. Apart from this the hotel is very centrally located, and ideal for trips around the center. The railway station is just a short walking distance away

    The hotel is situated right on the main shopping street of downtown Nice 15 minutes walk from the old town. So you are right where you wanna be if you are to explore the city. The hotel is decent inside, the rooms are small but the have enough storage place for a short stay. In the room we stayed in the carpets were stained and worn but otherwise there was no problem with hygiene. Breakfast was great with enough choices and a nice location. The only catch of this hotel is the price. We were able to get a room with discount on the Internet booking site but had we gotten no discount the full price would have been prohibitive for us average tourists.

    I stayed there for few days and were one of the best days I had. The great location of this property made my trip joyful. The easy access to the main area in Nice is just a few minutes away. Not only that but also, there were nearby coffee shops and supermarket. Even though there are limited parking spaces, during my trip I had no issues with finding a parking space. Another point, the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The room was worth the amount of money plus, it has a balcony viewing the lovely city. High level of cleanness all over the property. Highly recommended for everyone.

    « Classic and warm »

    We enjoyed 2 nights in this delightful classic hotel with warm and friendly staff. The rooms are delightful and a good size. It is perfectly placed within easy walking distance of the old town, seaside and transport. Be aware there is very limited off street parking at the hotel itself and you may need to park at there nearby parking station. We left our car on the street outside the first night - no charge - and staff advised us by phone the next morning when we were exploring to say a space onsite had become available. This was most helpful. A very good base to explore Nice and surrounding areas of the Riviera. Most enjoyable stay!

    Right in the middle of the main thoroughfare this 3 star hotel is perfectly situated for bars and shopping. The hotel itself is clean and tidy and has very nice, friendly and helpful staff but perhaps only downfall is poor breakfast.

    « Perfect for a short break! »

    My partner and I stayed here for 4 days in March. I had a BIG birthday while we were there, and the reception staff knew this and we had a lovely room on the 4th floor (room 416) with a huge comfortable king-size bed, french doors, a balcony overlooking the Avenue Jean Medecin (the main shopping street with trams) and the church. I also had a birthday card from the staff! The bathroom was fine, with a great hot shower and fluffy towels/toiletries, with a TV, but limited English channels. The wi-fi is the rooms is very slow. There are tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The only minor flaw, was the very cramped breakfast room, but..the scrambled eggs, sausages and bacon and croissants were delicious with good coffee from the machine but a toasting machine would have been a nice addition. The hotel is about 5 minutes from the rail station, 10 minutes from the Promenade des Anglais and the old town, and there is a Monoprix supermarket opposite..very handy for snacks, water, beer, wine etc! We have been to Nice several times and would DEFINITELY choose to stay here again!

    « Good value and a great location »

    We stayed for three nights in February and had a very pleasant stay. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was comfortable and of a decent size. Bathroom spotlessly clean albeit a little small. Breakfast was perfectly fine but the dining room is small and it can feel a little cramped if it's busy. The location is very good, just off the main shopping street. However, there is a good deal of noise from the street and early in the mornings it is noisy with delivery trucks etc. The train station is about 5 minutes walk away and the old town about 10 minutes away. I would stay again but see if I could get a quieter room.

    « If I can save one person »

    Only if best western knew about the way this place is and how its ran. And only if the phrase "Good Location" had feelings they would be hurt! Just a friend here, advising you before a foolish decision is made. First of all look at your luggage bag, it will be comparable to your room size. On many topics listed here, I really would not wish this hotel to anyone and I'm no complainer. Just bringing things into the light for you and the hotel. (like my duty) The people at the front desk are smooth cons taking extra money for a prepaid room. Maybe the best I have met. (I mean really good!) I'm not going to say how they got me, Just focus on the con they have in store for you! Stay away from the 2 hot items for breakfast - Stay alert on paying for anything Prepare and plan your entry of your room- take a bath (shower did not work) wish I took pictures of the mold in bathroom and others 2 airplane pillows (no joke)- there is many more but you may begin to think its personel-and a very noisey street. If 100 people Ignore me and stay here anyway, I have failed to explain it properly But if I could save one person or couple for staying here, both parties got what they deserved and that would make me happy for the hard work in helping you here. I had to advise - Do yourself a favor - stay away

    Booked this little beauty cheap last minute & was very pleased with the service. Small issue with room (not hotels fault/booking issue) but the staff went all out to accommodate us & rectified the matter next day. Decent self service breakfast with nice mixture of edibles. Hotel was clean, well kept, rooms were tidy & looked after: staff were friendly, informative & helpful. I'm looking forward to my next visit already !!! ??????

    Excellent location. Very easy to find, there is a big super market just across the street. Just a few minutes walk from the trainstation, the Massena square and the shopping. The rooms were quite spacious. They have a big Buddha statue next to the restaurant, it looks sweet.

    « Good hotel »

    We stayed at this hotel for a week in February 2016. We had booked one twin and one single. The rooms were comfortable, clean, reasonably spacious ( particularly the single) . and reasonably quiet. Breakfast was acceptable although the choice was rather limited and the breakfast area is quite cramped. The staff were all courteous, friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is excellent, being close to tram stops and we would thoroughly recommend it for anyone seeking good and reasonably priced accommodation in the centre of Nice.

    « Excellent location. »

    This hotel was well situated for all transport links including the 99 Airport bus, though the first bus to the airport is at 08.00.However, it is an express. There are lots of restaurants, coffee shops, supermarkets and a big modern shopping centre all within very easy walking distance. The beaches and the old town are quickly reached on foot or via the fabulous and cheap tram system. The hotel airport shuttle was not in use even though it is advertised. The hotel itself was attractive on the outside and functional on the inside. The staff were all helpful and friendly. We had a Superior Double room and it was rather small,as was the bathroom, but both were very clean. If you are on a higher floor, the lift can seem slow and it only holds three people. We did not have any issues with noise either from the street or within the hotel. The breakfasts were just average with little to comment on. We visited in winter and the breakfast room would be small if the hotel were full in the summer. Overall, we have stayed in better Best Western hotels but this cannot be beaten for location.

    « Comfortable Stay »

    Average hotel, comfortable and clean but nothing special. It does what it says on the tin. Bed comfortable,breakfast reasonable for France. Small elevator. Nothing exciting to find in the rooms. Bedroom furniture a little weird and reminds you of a patio set. Clean bathroom. Free WiFi.

    « Excellent location, Excellent service »

    This hotel enjoys an excellent location; about 10 minutes by foot from the Train Station, 10 minutes from Promenade des Anglais, right next to a grocery store, a shopping mall, and across the street from the Tram stop. It overlooks the main shopping avenue of the city, where you can even walk after midnight. The staff is nice and very helpful. I booked a Superior Double, and they gave me 416, which is probably the best room of the hotel, being on the 4th floor, having 3 windows, a balcony, and amazing vista. The room and bathroom are spacious, excellent beds and pillows, large LCD tv and closet. There is no mini bar (unfortunately). The breakfast was very good, for a 3-star city hotel, and included: croissants (3 kinds), bread, butter, jams, honey, nutella, salami, ham, cheese (2 kinds), yogurt, fruit salad, scrambled eggs, bacon and GREAT coffee. The breakfast rooms are a bit small, but it all depends on the time you go for breakfast. They refill the trays pretty quickly. There were 6 narrow parking spaces, for I think 14 euro per day. There is a small bar -for coffee only I think- and a computer you can use in the lobby. The wifi wasnt too fast. Overall, it was an excellent choice, and value for money. We traveled at the end of January and paid less than 300 euro for 4 nights (breakfast included) for the Superior Room. I would definitely go back!

    « Central and Cozy »

    Hotel is so central, It's on the main shopping street, 5 minutes walk to the old town, 10 minutes walk from the train station which gives you great variety of day trips. Staff were very nice and helpful except for one but no complaints. Room was nice, or shall we say quaint with lovely double balcony and shutters.

    « Good location but noisy »

    Great location but lots of issues with noise from the street, given its location in a busy area. You can hear every tram, truck and loud person in the street - so bring ear plugs! The location is good for shopping and walking to other parts of town (e.g. Massena Square). Room was clean but I had issues with the card holder falling off a couple of times when I inserted the card in it (to turn on the lights) and another power point was also very loose. Breakfast was average. A couple of things that would have made my stay more pleasant would have been complimentary bottles of water and some body moisturiser and hair conditioner in the bathroom, as all that was provided was soap and shampoo. The mattress was comfortable but the pillows were a little uncomfortable due to the shape (square rather than long). Wifi was provided but was slow. A positive was that Staff were nice and welcoming.

    « Shopping headquarter »

    Me and my family had limited time in nice, because the hotel is close to train station and messana square you do not lose time for visit anywhere in the city. In fact I was worried that our room was on the second floor and this may be a problem for street's notice. But don't worry isolation is good and we had good sleep, and the stuff at reservation desk were always helpful and nice.

    « A hotel with a sental location but have very Small rooms and noice from the trafic »

    Very helpful resepsjonist. The breakfast is ok. But the room was to little to have a good stay. The hotel is very central. You can walk to the beach and the old town and you have the tram just at the corner of this hotel. The bed is good but occupied most of the space of the room. You have to close the windows due to the trafic noice before going to sleep. The bath have a bathtub.

    « Not for the over 50 crowd »

    First, the good: this property is in a good location in central Nice. The tram runs on the street outside, making it convenient to go all over the city; but you can hear it from your room if your window is open. The rooms are very clean and well kept, though basic. There's a business center for computer use. There's a Monoprix right across the street for convenient & fun shopping. Breakfast is available. Nice 3-star property. Now let me tell you about some of the adventures my group and I had. I was there with a group of over-50 travelers. Luckily, we were all quite fit and had no serious mobility problems. But I can't recommend this place for anyone who gets a bit stiff first thing in the morning. The tub, as is the norm in France, has very tall sides, making for a big step up to get into it. There is no "grippy" stuff on the tub floor(I slipped one day and had nothing to help me get a purchase). There are no grab bars either. There's a glass half wall, but it swings on a hinge so it's not a safety feature. The bathroom is tiny and difficult to maneuver in, with no counter space by the sink. Amenities are exfoliating soap, pretty nice actually, and a shampoo/body gel. Go to the Monoprix and buy small bottles of shampoo, and conditioner if you use it, body lotion too since none is provided; the gel provided is drying to the skin and made my hair feel dry and gummy. Just my personal experience. If you like to watch TV for news or whatever, the TV is small(my desktop monitor is larger) and anchored up by the ceiling. It has BBC news but no other English programming. I admit I was a bit of a hotel snob here, having come from a beautiful 4-star hotel in Aix-en-Provence. The bed is comfy. There's some street noise until late evening. Use the elevator, it's small but efficient. For some reason, the stairs here are carpeted with a pattern of narrow stripes; my group agreed there's a danger because you can't tell where one step ends and the next begins. Hang on tight and mind the bifocals. So, as with any hotel, there are pluses and minuses; but you should be aware of the safety issues posed for older adults. I heard that someone had mentioned it to the front desk and was told that the hotel doesn't market/cater to seniors. Take this with a grain of salt, as it's hearsay, but it would seem to fit my personal experience here. I can't rate value for money since it was included in the overall tour price.

    « location a curse and a merit »

    this is a good choice if you want to spend a day or two in Nice. Location is excellent if you want to be close to the train station, about 10 mins walk, so you can travel to the airport and other nearby cities easily. Close proximity to shops with the usual shops like mono prix,fax, zara, h&m, etc on the door step. didn't try breakfast but there are plenty of choices within a few mins walk ranging from traditional cafes and brasseries to McCafe(good coffee) of McDonalds etc. For the price the hotel was adequate, even though the rooms have not been refurbished for a while, they were very clean with good bed and bedding and an acceptable bathroom. However, the room was very noisy, stayed on a Friday night, I'm not a fussy sleeper but was woken up from street noise a few times, even though I was on the top floor. staff was very friendly

    « Nice option in central Nice! »

    Nice hotel with great location in Nice: close to the station at a short walk to the beach and old-city. Shops, supermarket, restaurants and tram stop are available around. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms and good breakfast! The only negative point is that the acoustic isolation of the rooms are not very good: you can hear movement in the corridor and other rooms, but it didn't get to point to disturbe me at all! Definitely recommend it!

    « Great location! »

    I stayed in a balcony room which had beautiful views, would recommend. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and pleasant to talk to and make you feel at home! My room was a little small with a great shower/tub. Still very comfortable. Right across from a corner Cafe and across from a grocery/sundry store. I would stay here again and recommend it to you.

    « Uninspiring »

    The building is really quite grand and attractive and is in a fantastic central location with easy access to all tourist sites and restaurants. Once through the doors it is not really great though and, for the money, didn't feel like somewhere you'd want to spend more time than necessary. We breakfasted out (which is really easy and more pleasant) to avoid the extremely dull breakfast room and offerings. There's nothing wrong with this hotel, it just doesn't really do anything more than the functional minimum. We had a room on the third floor at the front which meant that we had a balcony which was a pleasant and welcome additional space. The room was supposed to be superior but it's hard to know what you'd have to remove to make is inferior!

    « One of the best »

    It's quite central in Nice in a good location to the train station, trams and Promenade de Anglaise. It is very easy to get around from here and always feel safe even if you are a single traveller. The rooms are nice but if you are a light sleeper it is best to get some earplugs as you may here the trams occasionally. The staff are really nice and helpful. There are restaurants near here.The hotel will be getting modernised very shortly. I do recommend this hotel highly. Try for yourself and find out.

    « Everything you want on the Côte d'Azur »

    Although perhaps confusingly named after New York, there is nothing "big apple" about this hotel. It is reassuringly French in design, with a beautiful belle epochs facade, and feel. The hotel has a paved courtyard garden entry and a stylish reception and guest bar/lounge adjacent. The front desk staff are helpful, especially Nella, who welcomes people warmly and is helpful with advice about where to go and what to see. The rooms are comfortable, refurbished fairly recently, and decorated with bold fabrics and touches of wrought iron. The bathrooms are modern and a good size. The breakfast, which costs about €8 per person, is very good, offering a good range cereals, bread, croissants, fruit - stewed and fresh, meats and freshly scrambled eggs and fine omelettes. The coffee machine is good and the orange juice is fresh too. The hotel is situated in the city centre, literally a few steps from Avenue Jean Médecin, which runs from the Place Massena up through the center of the city has many of the city's main shopping and department stores. There is a modern tram system on this route and you can buy a ten trip ticket for €10 - very handy. There's a Monoprix ( an upscale supermarket and some) across the street and a wonderful cafe/bar, Le Grand Cafe, diagonally opposite on Avenue Jean Médecin, No matter your interest, whether art, shopping or historic architecture, Nice gives you a range of choices and experiences from the Matisse Museum, Musee d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain (MAMAC), Musée et Sites Archéologiques (behind Matisse Museum, founded by Augustus in 14 BC as the City of Cemenelum), Musée Marc Chagall (there's a free bus between Chagall, Matisse & Archéologiques). For the shoppers, the Nice Etoille is a block away from the hotel and Galleries Nouvelle further down Avenue Jean Médecin, FNAC, an excellent book store also selling CDs, electronics and stationery items, is just around the corner. The Old Town,Vieux Ville, is a short walk or tram ride away, between Ave Jean Jaurés and the beach, Promenade Anglais. And of course there are lots of cafés, bars and restaraunts offering outside tables, dotted everywhere.

    Stayed here for a weekend on our way through to Avignon and found it to be clean, well staffed and in a great location near train stations and trams. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and accommodated our requests quickly and with a smile. Easy walk to water, shopping and restaurants.

    « Ok for a one night stay »

    This time last week my family and I were sunning ourselves in the south of France. Due to flight scheduling we needed accommodation in Nice for one evening. We had two rooms one to accommodate 2 adults and one teenager and another to sleep two adults and an infant. On arrival we found the 'limited car park' extremely limited with approx 8 spaces - after trying to navigate the awful one way systems to finally reach the hotel we couldn't park but the hotel were happy for is to leave the car outside while we unloaded. The front desk had no note of is requiring a travel cot - we had booked through booking.com and apparently any notes you leave on their are not given to the hotel!!! So we were told they would send a travel cot up. On getting into the rooms the family room smelt extremely damp and unused and there were no towels. The double room smelt ok but had no room for a travel cot at all. We waited and no cot arrived. We decided to switch round our rooms so the baby would sleep in the family room. We went down to reception and asked for towels and the cot to be sent to the family room. The receptionist made some sarcastic remark that we had stated the other room ... I responded with the fact that if he knew the rooms he had allocated he would realise that room 409 was far to small and would not accommodate the travel cot. The towels had not arrived when we came back to the hotel at 11pm after dinner so we went and asked once more! Breakfast was pleasant but I feel the cost was a little over priced for a continental only breakfast at 9 Euros per person. I would not chose this hotel again as it was difficult to find, difficult to park near, and the standard of the hotel was not what I would expect from a best western.

    « Great value »

    This was a very pleasant hotel, the rooms, bathrooms and public areas were clean. It's situated just off the Main Street into Nice centre, we found it very quite and relaxing. The reception staff are very well trained and efficient in customer service. There is no bar at this hotel due to it not serving meals, there is beer in the vending machine and the reception staff are happy to make you tea or coffee. They also gave us advise on the trains! Buses and Taxies. We didn't have breakfast as it was 12 euro per person and when we looked into the breakfast room it looked very limited. We found a Paul patisserie just down the road where 3 of us had pastries, juice, coffee, and fresh fruit for 22 euro. Depending on your room you may hear the tram ring its bell but it wasn't a issue, as it is just as it crosses the road.

    Ants!!!!The Morning front desk person was very nice but our room was infested with ants!!!! Even when they changed the room there where ants in the new room as well. They made no effort to comp us for this terrible condition!! We asked to speak to the manager but he wasn't in, in the evening or the morning before we left!!

    The Pros: Nice lobby Good location for getting to train station/ promenade/ downtown The Cons: Front desk staff could use some "friendly" skill set training Rooms are minuscule ( I mean tiny!) and by no means cheap No coffee maker or tea pot in room (probably because there was no room for one) Bed as hard as a rock Noisy location Was disappointed that this was a Best Western, as we have stayed at some throughout Europe & UK with much higher standards than this hotel.

    « 1 night at Best Western Nice »

    The location of the hotel is very good, but it is probably the only reasonable explanation of the price paid. The hotel has almost no parking, a very small (and scary) and old school elevator. I specifically requested a quiet room, but the there was lot of noise. I understand that you can't help the train running, but we have had people shouting (inside and outside the hotel), trucks loading/unloading the entire night.

    « Great location and friendly staff »

    We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. Location is great, everything is within walking distance and local transportation takes you further away if you need to. We took a train to Monaco where we spent a day. Staff is very friendly! Reception helped us to get a taxi to the airport (we were 9 persons) with a very good price. Houseeeping staff smiled every morning. Rooms are clean and bed is so comfortable! We slept like a baby. Breakfast room is quite small and they don´t have a restaurant in the hotel but these things aren´t so important. We had a very good experience and enjoyed our vacation.
