    « Ideal hotel to discover Nice and it's surroundings »

    Very tidy hotel, great service, friendly staff. Breakfast was elaborate, fresh juices and bread every day. Was here for the marathon and breakfast was sirved at 4.30 am! Not every hotel is willing to do that, i know from experience! Big thank you for that!! Rooms are spacious enough, sometimes a bit cold at night, even wth the heating on, but also very clean and lovely! Bathroom very clean, nice shower! Bit noisy hallway, but that's not the hotel's fault! In only 5 minutes you're at the Place Massena, from where you can walk in every direction to look for some nice places to have brunch, lunch or diner in one of the houndreds of tiny streets and alleys!

    « Budget hotel which is punching above its weight »

    Everything done to a really high standard. The staff are amazing and they are always willing to help. We didn't use any of the facility's or have the breakfast so I can't comment but I'm sure that they'll be good. The rooms were really big and the bath was massive. Had both a shower and a bath. Would come back here if I was coming back. It's really punching above it's weight. It's easy to get to from the airport using the bus 98. Everything is in walking distance. We also went to Monaco whilst we were there, was super cheap on the train and took about 20 minutes.

    « Very reasonable price, great location excellent room!!! »

    I am very pleased that I have booked this Hotel we have paid less than £60 per night and got junior suite which was excellent. Two bathrooms, sitting area with extra bad, nespresso coffee machine, staff was very friendly everything was perfect!!!

    « Great location, great value »

    We booked on Priceline for only $73 per night, so with this great location it was a no-brainer! As many reviews say, location is outstanding, but the else is also great: cleanliness, friendly staff, free WiFi, daily room cleaning, bedding is very comfy. As negatives, I would comment on weak Wi-Fi signal, expensive and bland breakfast. Our room was reasonably sized but shower was smallish even for me (my dress size is 10). I glanced in a room next door, it looked bigger, so there are choices.

    « Great location, comfortable and reasonably priced hotel »

    We were most please with the Best Western Hotel Roosevelt. Our room was relatively large for a hotel in France and I guess we were fortunate and had a good spin of the wheel. The room was well decorated and the bed large and comfortable. The hotel staff was helpful and courteous. The hotel offered a breakfast with extensive selections for 12 euros - which is good price for France. Best of all we found the location perfect in terms of walking access to the sights in Nice - a fantastic city by the way. We were driving and the hotel offered a reduced price parking garage nearby. (we did not use the car at all.)

    « A great place to visit the French Riviera »

    We were delighted with our stay at this Hotel and were sorry we hadn't booked a longer stay. The staff were great, the rooms were wonderful, the all day help yourself capaccino machine was a big hit too. The Hotel is in a great position from which to discover Nice. The beach is only a few blocks away. There are restaurants galore within walking distance. We were delighted to find a launderette a few blocks away.

    « Excellent stay »

    Ticked all the boxes and a short walk to cafe restaurants and promenade. Didnt try breakfast. Reception staff very helpful and freindly. Roomed cleaned every day. Excellent double glaxing which shut out noise from street and black out curtains. Cant fault it!

    « Great location, stands out in it's class of 3 star hotels »

    Stayed here for 4 nights. This is my second time staying at this hotel. Location is great, near pedestrian zone with tons of restaurants and 5 minutes to the Promenade. I stayed on the 4th floor. It's one of the better floors. The room has a decent size and has a large bath tub (a big plus). Coffee in the room was good (Nespresso). Breakfast has decent options but after 4 days, it gets old. Breakfast includes (cold cuts, scramble eggs, sausages, crepes, cheese, hard boil eggs, yogurt and bread). The bread was disappointing, not fresh. The croissant tasted like it was left overs. However, the fresh squeeze orange juice is a plus.

    « Week in Nice! »

    Stayed 10-17th September. Hotel is in a great location, about a 5 minute walk to sea and 10 minute walk to train station. Small room and shower but was ok for a couple. No frills, decent broadband connection but as per previous comments, more of a fan than proper air conditioning that cools room down but not a massive issue. Very clean hotel which is my main requirement. Make sure you do day trips to Monte Carlo, Antibes, Cannes, VilleFranche, absolutely great! Get there by train. Nice is a lovely place and lots to do, would come again.

    « Double room at the Roosevelt »

    I had the pleasure of staying here last night with my partner. Quirky as often Best Westerns are - in this case, a very large bathroom, and a very small lift that only holds two people. Very comfortable bed, excellent television and desk, lots of space, would go back.

    « Maybe more suitable for singles or group of friends »

    This hotel is definitely a 3 star I do not reccomend this for families it is a bit rundown and has a bit of a odour.The service from the staff is 5 star and the breakfast is well priced and lots to choose from.

    « Superb location and very comfortable accommodation in Nice »

    This hotel exceeded our expectations for our brief 2-day visit to Nice. Our family of 4 (with 2 teenagers) were very comfortable in the spacious family room. The beds were on the hard side but perfect for our preferences. Front desk staff were welcoming and very helpful with information on the whereabouts of different sites around Nice. They serve breakfast for €12 per person; however we walked around the block to one of the local grocery stores to pick up fruit, juice, configure, baguette and croissants for €12 for the four of us, which we ate in our room. Only 2 blocks from Promenade des Anglais, centrally located yet in a quiet area. Highly recommend this hotel.

    « Great location »

    Stayed for 5 nights on a room only basis. The hotel is in a good location with many restaurants and cafes nearby. It's easy to get around from here - the promenade, the old town and the rail station are all within easy walking distance. Breakfast at the hotel looked fine but we enjoyed having a stroll each morning and choosing somewhere for a coffee and croissant. The Roosevelt doesn't have a bar but there is a vending machine for soft drinks and snacks. If I have one criticism it would be the air conditioning wasn't sufficiently cool for the summer weather; it felt more like a fan than air con. The staff were all friendly and helpful and spoke English. (views from the hotel pictured)

    « Nice staff, poor infrastructure »

    I'm currently staying at this hotel and its less than what I expected. First, the staff are polite and helpful. The bed and TV were decent and it has a small but nice bathroom. The main problem is the air conditioning. The front desk claims the card must be used to switch on the room and the heat pump. I can tell you, being around these systems before, they don't work properly. For the small room, the unit should cool it very easily...but it doesn't. The couple I was with had the same problem in their room. So it makes for a kinda warm, kinda muggy feeling throughout the night. Second problem is the WiFi. I had one bar if that. My phone and laptop had trouble. Luckily my work phone has a hotshot and I used that instead. The cost of another $100 router could fix the problem. So if you're expecting a cold room and good wireless, maybe look elsewhere.

    « Great location, Friendly staff »

    Fantastic location only 1 block back from the promenade. Ice machine and coffee machine and pastries a great added bonus. friendly staff. The room was a little small and could use some updating but was clean and comfortable.

    « Great location »

    Close to all restaurants and shops. Very small room with equally small bathroom. Just the basics. Air conditioning very weak and only works when room key is in room so room never gets cool. Otherwise a decent clean room for a one night stay.

    « The worst hotel i've been »

    This is by far the worst hotel i've been. I'm now on my third room in a 9 days stay. None of the rooms has an air conditioner that works properly. I've made some complaints i nobosy did nothing, I really gave up on the AC. A new chapter is the saga to use the wifi. I am right now in my pijamas, on the hallway, just to make thia complaint. I feel really mistreated!!!!

    « Nice location »

    Situated in the city centre and just a few minutes stroll from the promenade and some fantastic eating places, Hotel Roosevelt was perfect for our stay in Nice. Hotel staff were great and all were very knowledgeable and friendly. Tha rail station is just a 10-minute walk from the hotel? Although breakfast was not included in our hotel stay, the buffet €12 per person per day was good value and more than adequate for our needs. Enjoyed our stay and would return to Hotel Roosevelt.

    « Great location, hotel needs work »

    We chose this hotel based on reviews on here. I can tell you, we were so excited to get there and relax after our long flight from the United States, but we were very disappointed. The first room we were given had a smell of musty vomit on the carpet when you walked in the door. The bathroom had a smell of urine on the floor. The Europe Cup 2016 was going on while we were there. The bed was hard as a board and only 2 pillows for the bed, I have a very sensitive nose and couldn't take the smell in the room, we placed baby powder all over the floor where the smell was coming from. I went downstairs and the desk attendant was not able to move us until the next day due to the hotel was sold out. The next day they moved us to a jr suite Rm 306. It was better, but again had a musty smell, the air conditioning is not strong so I think that is contributing to the musty smell. The showers do not drain well, so be prepared to take a short shower. The great thing about the jr. suite is that there are 2 bathrooms, the bed is larger and softer and has a great sitting area. Even if it is a couple I highly suggest the jr. suite if you can afford it. We had the breakfast buffet each day. It was sufficient for what we wanted. It is in a great location. 10 minute walk to the train.

    « Great location »

    Walking distance to everything in Nice. 15 minutes to the train station that runs the coast from Monaco to St. Tropez. We stayed the weekend of the Grand Prix and had to prepay for a four night stay. The rate was expensive for this hotel. You get a clean room that is reasonably appointed. I would stay here again if I could get their normal rates. The elevator is extremely small. Two people with bags need to make two trips. The staff was friendly and pleasant.

    « Beautiful Hotel »

    This hotel was just in a lovely location in Nice with beautiful rooms complete with a balcony. We arrived here by fluke as our accommodations previously arranged were double booked. Needless to say it was a difficult day and we arrived here exhausted and discouraged. The completely bilingual staff immediately put us at ease and went out of their way to accommodate us. There was parking (what a relief) and a lovely full breakfast for a reasonable amount was optional. The wifi was free but you had to keep signing in!! The only minus if the staff had tried to find us accommodation at their sister hotel we would have booked as they were full and we were so discouraged. Otherwise a great stay as per usual at Best Western.

    « Great Hotel! »

    This hotel is a hidden gem. Clean, great staff and beautiful breakfast We had a family room with a double and 2 twins for our teenagers. It was a block from all the main restaurants and shops and 3 blocks from the beach. The walk to the restaurants was down a tree,lined street. My husband and I have traveled all over the world in 3 to 5 star hotels and we would stay here again!

    « Fantastic Hotel »

    Very good hotel, well located, walking distance from all the attractions in NICE...... promenade, shopping, train station etc. Clean big rooms, had taken a suite for 3 people , the people at the front desk very helpful.

    « "Location make life easier" »

    This's my first time in France and Nice. This hotel is really in a city center and you can go somewhere in Nice very easy. Staffs are great service. Especially the Front office they show attractions area on the map and help me to get a salon for a hair cut. Excellent service and I'll be back if I have chance.

    « Fantastic week in Nice »

    Hotel situated close to train station which runs an excellent service we travelled to , Grasse, Cannes and mont carlo by train and once you have bought ticket to destination you are free to get off at places along the line using the same ticket We were entitled to seniors fare and return trip to Monti Carlo (20mins) was 6euro each!! The hotel staff and their manager were fantastic and always a smile greeted us when we returned after a day's sightseeing Would reccomend the open top bus tour in Monti Carlo

    « Great hotel in centre of Nice »

    I stayed here for 4 nights in April with my partner and was very pleased with the hotel. The room was clean, refreshed daily, and had all the amenities you would expect, as well as tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was nice and clean, with complimentary toiletries, and we had a small balcony overlooking the side street too. There was a large TV, and the bed was really quite large and comfortable, and there was no problem when I asked for an additional pillow. The wi-fi worked well throughout our stay. In the foyer there was a snack and drink vending machine, and there was a complimentary ice machine too. The location was great for us to explore Nice and further afield. Only 5 or so minutes from the sea, and a little further to the Old Town. The train station was only about 10 minute walk away, which was handy as we had a couple of day trips out to Monaco and Eze, and Cannes and Antibes. We had breakfast included in our rate. There was a really good selection of food and drinks, including fresh bread and pastries, fresh fruit, yoghurts, crepes, cereals, scrambled egg, sausages, meats, cheeses, and it was all replenished throughout the morning. You can also use the coffee machine, and there are pastries available during the day. The reason for not giving 5 stars was that our check-in experience wasn't great.If I could 4 and a half stars, I would! The person who checked us in seemed to just be covering the desk for someone for a short while, and didn't give us a lot of information (for example, I had to ask what our room number was, and we had to go back later to get a map of the city) Although he was very pleasant, he just didn't seem very experienced in checking guests in. Most of the other staff we encountered were very pleasant (especially the gentleman with glasses who worked most evenings). I would definitely stay at the hotel again, good value for money, and would recommend to friends visiting Nice.

    « Our April stay 2016 »

    This is a friendly hotel and efficient. English speaking reception. Will keep your bags for you if you are early, that's a nice touch. Room was small with 2 twin beds but comfortable. Were charged for 3 breakfasts even though we didn't eat there. They do not keep track of who is eating when you come down. Breakfast was nice and adequate. Our only problem was mosquitos!! We had 70 degree weather which is warm for that time of year.

    « Location,location,location.. »

    Old town, promenade, train station, restaurants and shopping areas all within walking distance makes this an ideal hotel for a break in Nice. The hotel was clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was of a good size and quiet as it faced away from street. The hotel does not have a full restaurant or bar, but there are plenty of places within minutes. It does serve breakfast but we did not try it so I am unable to comment. All in all would recommend as good value in a ideal location.

    « Wonderful Hotel Close to Everything »

    This hotel was a great hotel for it's location. We could easily get to the center of town, the beach, old town, the port, and trains and buses quickly. We had free coffee at the hotel every morning, which was really nice. We didn't end up having their breakfast, as there were so many local shoppes nearby that we wanted to try. The staff were super helpful and friendly. Most of them spoke English and they helped us find restaurants and let us know where the locals go in town. We are from the New York area, so we know about tourist traps and wanted to feel like locals. They also helped us map out cities and places to go, when we were confused. A few things that surprised us were that you have to leave your key with them every time you leave the building. You then pick it up each time you come in. It wasn't a problem, but just something you will have to keep in your mind. The key also turns on the lights in the room. They also don't have conditioner in the rooms, but I am back home now and stopped using it, as I realized my hair seems healthier without it. Be careful leaving the balcony windows open at night. We left them open and were pretty badly bitten by some type of bug. We ended up putting a do not disturb sign on our door the last couple of days, so that the cleaning lady wouldn't open the windows. They also have a tiny elevator that fits four people, but is more for two people, unless you want to be super close. They upgraded us, since it was our wedding anniversary, which was really nice. The room was a decent size and had a safe and a refrigerator inside. That was helpful because we were able to buy fresh yogurt and cheese and store them in the refrigerator. They have some English channels on the tv and air conditioning and heat. The front desk was available 24/7, which was also nice! I would definitely recommend this hotel to people who want to really explore the city and walk everywhere or travel to different cities. If you are looking for a room to hang in and enjoy the scenery, then I would look for a different hotel. It was the best choice for what we were looking for on our trip. We traveled to Monaco, St. Jean Cap Ferrat, Eze, Antibes, Grasse, and VilleFranche and this was the perfect area to be in to get to all of those places.

    « Value for money »

    Stayed here for three nights with friends, room great but shower not so good, seemed to leak which ever way you pointed it had to put towels outside, good location and value for money, staff were lovely and very pleasant, dining room a little small if busy, breakfast good for money

    « Wonderful stay in a convenient location »

    We only stayed one night in Nice after a 10 day stay in Grasse and found the Best Western Roosevelt to be a great place for our last night in France. The reception staff was superb. The location was terrific. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed.

    « Great value well kept hotel in good location »

    Based on price and what you get for your money, I think this hotel represents excellent value for money especially when compared to other hotels in Nice. The hotel is in a good location, 10 min walk to the beach or the other way to the train station, the hotel is in a quieter part of the city. The staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful and spoke English The room we had was clean, slavery enough for two of us, it had a fridge, tv, hairdryer, coffee and tea making facilities, a corkscrew if you take a bottle of wine back with you Breakfasts cost 12 Euro per person, eat as much as you want but continental style There is no bar, however there is a vending machine for drinks and snacks plus free ice. Umbrellas are available for free There is a very nice wine bar worth trying on the same road 10 doors down, well worth a try for the relaxed atmosphere but not cheap Overall enjoyable stay a credit to all the staff and management

    « Easter in Nice »

    Good location only a couple of blocks from the Promenade des Anglais and with walking distance to old town. Very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in a nice minisuite with a little balcony. Really good to be a 3star Hotel in France. Excellent service. Will definitely come back.

    « Very comfortable stay »

    We stayed here for two nights travelling from Italy to France. The hotel was excellent, room clean and comfortable, bathroom clean, tea and coffee making facilities and a very comfy bed. Good breakfast selection for small charge and excellent location near the beach and main avenue. Staff friendly and helpful. What else is there to say - I was sorry to leave!!!

    « This one is a gem in this area! »

    The hotel is located in the city center and not far away from the beach. You can request parking (the garage is not far away), but there is also public paid parking available round the hotel premise (Sunday is for free!). The Wifi was for free, breakfast was not in my room arrangement. When booking ask for a room on the higher floors, towards the street - thy come with a balcony and a nice view of the streets around. The rooms are typical French size, maybe on the bigger end - but not as spacious as one is used from other countries. Still very comfortable, and also English TV channels on the TV. Would for sure be my 1st choice when going back to Nice.

    « Nice little gem of a hotel »

    Great location, clean hotel with great amenities! Rooms modern and spacious! Nice coffee machine with complimentary coffee for the morning! Staff very helpful and accomodating.Modern decor with restaurant on premises!

    « Loved this hotel! Will definitely return! »

    It had everything we wanted - great location, excellent helpful friendly staff, larger rooms than we have usually found in European hotels, clean and comfortable rooms. Nice breakfast although not free. Coffee machines and pastries available all day were a nice touch. Wifi generally worked. Great hot water! Elevator small but always worked. Our room was quiet even though it overlooked the street, and we had a balcony. It's very near Place Massena and rue Jean Medecin, so we could walk to all the central places and take the convenient tram or buses elsewhere. Easy walk to beach. We got a "junior suite" which was perfect for the two of us (grandparents), and our 8-year-old granddaughter who had a nice bed in an adjoining area, which also had a small desk where we could set up our computer.

    « Centrally located with helpful staff »

    Close to railroad station, bus stops, numerous and varied restaurants, and abundant shopping. All of the staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable and eager to assist in any way. Clean, quiet room with very comfortable bed. Highly recommend!

    « Central location great for short break »

    Really enjoyed our Feb stay in Nice great sunny weather first 2 days. Hotel reception very friendly and free coffee machine and pastries available 24 hours a day. We had a room for 3 which was a good size with 3rd bed a proper bed. Beds comfortable. Situation was great just 5 mins to prom and shops. Would recommend hotel.

    « Great central spot and quiet and clean »

    My boyfriend and I went to Nice for a long weekend in March 2015. So easy to get from the airport to the centre (just one bus that is about 20 minutes along the beautiful coast road). The hotel is a few roads back from the coast and is 15 minutes walk at most (SNCF station is another 15-20 minutes walk where you get the train across to Ventimiglia, Italy) Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Room wasn't huge (nice bathroom though) but we were going to be mainly out and about exploring so wasn't a big deal. Quiet area which is good (for those who like a good night's sleep!). Breakfast was available but we didn't use it. Wi-Fi in rooms too as well as TV with all the usual news and local channels. We would definitely stay again. I can't comment on price as it was booked as a surprise trip but having stayed at Best Westerns before, I'm sure it was good value.

    « affortable nice hotel »

    The triple room is comfortably spacious, bath room is clean and big enough, the beds are comfy. Wifi is free but not the breakfast. Hotel provides umbrella for guests. We do like the shoe cleaning/shining gadget since we did lots of walking. The location is good, not too busy.

    « Well located, good visit »

    Really enjoyed our visit here. A warm welcome on arrival, we were far too early so our case was stored safely so we could get off to enjoy the lovely sunny October weather. We found the staff here to be very friendly and helpful, particularly the young man who we found extremely helpful (sorry we forgot his name). The hotel is well located, 10 mins from the promenade, 5 mins from restaurants and 5 mins from the railway station. For us this was perfectly located for a short break to enjoy Nice, Monaco Antibes and Cannes. We were allocated a good room on the 4th floor which was perfectly adequate for the price we paid. Tea and coffee in the room was appreciated and the fridge was useful for storing drinks. Overall a very enjoyable stay in a good hotel which is well located with some good friendly staff. Thank you Best Western Roosevelt. On a personal note, vive la France, my heart is with the lovely people in your country following the Paris atrocities, so very sad.

    « Worst "Best" Western »

    This hotel by far provides the worst service on earth...It's ran by a bunch of inexperienced staff that have no idea how to manage a hotel. From check in to check-out everything was bad! I walked-in in the afternoon around 1:15 ~ 1:20 pm to check-in and I was competently "ignored" by 3 girls standing in the reception area and chatting with each other for a good 2~3 minutes. They seemed to be training one of the girls. Finally after I said something one of the girls acknowledged me. I told her that I have a reservation and gave her my passport and she immediately without even looking further responded "But check in is not until 2 pm" Ok, fine! You got me so I said that I am aware of that but I was wondering if my room is available and she can check me in 30~40 min early. Of course it took another 5-7 min to look for my reservation and when she finally found it, she goes again " I have your room available but check in is 2 pm" I was like are you joking? Why are you telling me my room is clean and available then keep repeating the same thing over and over?! You are not doing me a favor by checking me in early. I paid for this reservation!! Then finally after another 5 min, one of the 3 girls checked me in and gave me the keys but with the attitude of ?How dare you check-in 30 min early?. Mind you that the entire time, I am just standing there not understanding what they are trying to do as they were scrambling through paper and calling people on the phone. What they didn't know, is that I speak French and I can understand every word they were saying. It's like they were trying to get an approval from the president of the hotel just to check me in...The second problem occurred when I noticed that their wifi blocked VPN connections so I wasn't able to connect to my work domain. After going back and forth with again one of the girls, she finally realized that I needed more than just a restart to the router. She keeps telling me that she will call the internet provider to have them help me.And she keeps telling that they will call me back within 30 min, literally at least 3 times within 3 hours. Every time I checked with her, she would say oh maybe in 30 minutes or will call them tomorrow or in the next 10 mins...This back and forth went on and on for two days. I was about to lose my last nerve. And finally on day 3 when I really lost it and started to freak out on them, they finally connected me with someone who was able to help me. I had access to the wifi for 2 hours then it was down again for the rest of my stay. No one seemed to care or realize that I needed to work and I had to have access to the wifi. I explained that to them several times and they didn't even apologies for their mistakes or at least offer an alternative solution. Every time I checked with the reception, they just give the "It's not our problem" face. Except one young guy, I didn't get his name but he was so nice and very helpful. He tried his best to help me and even offered me a cable to try to connect my laptop directly hardwire but unfortunately he couldn't resolve the issue. But at least he tried to go above and beyond unlike the other useless employees. Also, one of the nights a friend of mine tried to visit me passed 11 pm and one of the receptionist stopped him and told him that visitors are not allowed but he will let him go up anyway?? What's wrong with those people?! They seemed to want to make you feel that everything they do for you is a favor and it's not their job!! Then finally as I was checking out on my 3 day, the person who checked me out tried to make me pay for the reservation that I already pre-paid for on And he also claimed that I had breakfast on the first day I checked in, and I should pay another 12 euro. This was clearly another mistake because I checked in after their breakfast serving hours. And finally, after he was convinced that I didn't have breakfast and my reservation was pre-paid we realized the taxi that one of the girls supposedly ordered for me the night before, didn't show up. He was kind enough to call and order a taxi for me. I think they never even scheduled one to begin with....This place is clearly ran by a bunch of mediocre staff that has no sense of urgency or understanding to quality customer service.

    « Lovely big bedroom, friendly staff, good location »

    Lovely big bedroom unlike most hotels these days, good location within short walk of shops, restaurants etc and the Promenade. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is very clean. Dining room rather small and right beside the main entrance door, but not a big issue.

    « Lovely Hotel and in a great location »

    This is my second time staying in this Hotel ,a few years apart ,and I must say its better it got. The staff were so friendly and helpful.The Hotel is very clean, there is a great tea/coffee machine which you can access at anytime , also lovely pastries. The Hotel is in a super location, walking distance to Old Town/ Beach/ Shopping.This is a Hotel I would stay in again.

    « Nice hotel in the centre of NIce »

    We had a lovely stay at the Best Western Roosevelt. The hotel is ideally located in the centre of Nice and is an easy walk to everything (beaches, shopping, old town etc). Compared to many other hotels in the same area it is great value for money. The staff were lovely and incredibly friendly. The room was small (although bigger than many other hotels I have stayed in in France) with great free wifi, a really comfortable queen-size bed, tea-and-coffee making facilities, a fridge and balcony. The room was very clean and well maintained and there was a (very very) small lift. We traveled with a baby and the hotel was very baby-friendly. We would be happy to stay here again. Also, the staff at the hotel told us about a little pizza place (Snack Pizza) on Rue du Marechal Joffre (near the corner of Rue du Marechal Joffre and Rue du Dr Barety - about 250m from the hotel) that is very popular with the locals. It doesn't look fancy at all (I almost didn't go in)... but the pizzas were amazing and simply incredible value (5.5euros for a full-size pizza and a drink!!). The pizzas are as good, if not better, than any other pizza I have eaten on the South of France.

    « A return visit »

    this is the 5th time I have stayed here and there has been improvement in Décor. it is a very typical hotel for the area and it is always a pleasure to return. I hope that I am able to re-visit next year round about the same time - the weather is usually good. I would recommend this hotel to any person that likes the cotes d'azur

    « Great moderate option in expensive Nice »

    This is the kind of property where you have to remind yourself it's just the place where you're going to sleep, not the reason you're in Nice. It's a solid three-star hotel in the hear of the city within walking distance to the coastline, shops and restaurants. You can also walk to it from train station. Staff is fantastic, no doubt about it. Rooms could use a little upgrading and a better design. WiFi was very good. They also have a great coffee/tea/hot chocolate machine out all day and available to guests. Little pastries are also available at no cost. It's a very nice touch. Nice is very expensive, the Roosevelt is definitely a good bargain.

    « Absolute Best of Best Western Hotels!! »

    Stayed as a family last week for four nights ( so wish we could have stayed longer). This hotel was by far the best we encountered over our five weeks of travel both in terms of standards and customer service and I am perplexed by the 3 star rating!!! Our room was huge by European Standards along with the beds we also had club chair, coffee table, desk with two chairs, wardrobe and lugguage racks, added bonus of tea/coffee facilities in room, the bathroom was also big and well stocked; both rooms beautifully appointed and very clean.. The staff were exceptional we were warmly welcomed by reception and the gentleman who booked us in was very helpful with handy hints and recommended good places to dine and even rang to book a table for us to eat and we were not disappointed with his recommendation, nothing was too much trouble and we were always acknowledged with a warm smile and greeting when coming and going.. Hotel Roosevelt is an 15-20 min walk (flat) from Nice Ville Train Station and 30-40min drive (in traffic) from Nice Airport, 4 min walk to main shopping strip, 2 mins to old town where there is plenty of restaurants to choose from and 5-10 mins from beach. Hint if you want to go swimming/sunbaking the beaches tend to be mostly pebbles so good idea to get the train further out of Nice to nearby villages. Highly highly recommend this hotel..

    « A nice hotel in Nice! »

    It is a nice hotel in the very good location in Nice center, on the street of Boutiques. We had superior room and it was clean, very spacious with wide comfy bed, balcony and espresso machine in the room. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel and regretted later as we heard that it was good. It was a nice experience - thank you!

    « Excellent hotel »

    The room was clean and spacious for 4 people. The staff was friendly and helpful. You can see the effort they put in to answer questions and also help book and recommend tours. The hotel is in an ideal location. It's a 10 minute walk from the old town. There's also restaurants within 5 minute walk if you like somethung quick. It's also a 10-minute walk from the train station about 20 minute drive to the airport. Also an easy 10-minute walk to the beach.

    « 5 Stars for a 3 Star Hotel »

    Great location: walking distance with luggage from Nice Ville train station, to Rue Massena and to the Promenade des Anglais. Very friendly and helpful staff especially Emmanual, Emily and Nabil... booked an 8 hour tour for us... their recommendation of Med-Tours lived up to their trust in this company. Healthy breakfast with many options in a modern, cheerful dining area. The room and hallways were warmly decorated... our room had a balcony... excellent wifi. Neighborhood felt very safe. Housekeeping was well done. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Standard hotel in a great location ! »

    People were very helpful and with a smile (rare in Nice) which included the cleaning staff, the evening staff etc- Service was very good! Great coffee machine in your clean room. We chose not to have breakfast but everyone seemed satisfied. Starbucks is only a 5 minute walk from here. If you plan to only sleep in your hotel this is perfect ..... but some things to be aware of : -Stopping your car in front of the hotel is nearly impossible. -no bus boy or concierge ready to help you unload. -Internet is weak and spotty. -One little elevator, large enough for two suitcases and a person. -Our shower was weak and our carpet had stains but was clean.

    « Comfort but noisy location »

    We had a good sized impressively decorated room, although small bathroom. Kind and friendly at reception on check-in (leaving bags prior to room availability), departure and check-out (our baggage secured until flight). There is a hospitality tray in the room (which quite a few hotels lack). The hotel is in a central position, ideal for city streets, sightseeing, restaurants, etc., but found our room suffered from traffic noise. The train station and bus for the airport are within walking distance. Bus 98 to the promenade area may be the best for this hotel but bus 99 goes to the train station and walk down the main street to the hotel (cost is 6 Euros, pay on the bus and take your luggage on board). Tip: establish the airport terminal you are travelling from as our bus (no. 98) terminated at terminal 2 and we had to be shuttled on another bus to T1. The driver / staff could not tell us our terminal - you will be expected to know! We were asked which terminal Norwegian aIr departs from!

    « the apparence of the advert on website looked nothing to reality. »

    The Hotel rooms were very small, The television was impossible to listen to as it was set at low sound level. The beds were uncomfortable, the window were very narrow the view was the hotel next door, I have never seen a lift so small , it was supposed to hold three people but you just got two people in. at a squeeze,after seeing a young women struggling with a baby in a small buggy she had to squash herself close to the inside of the lift, a lady with 2 fair sized suitcase, had difficulty getting in so I looked after one case when she went to her room then came back for her other case, I can not see us ever coming back to this hotel.


    Third visit to this good value,centrally sited hotel where friendly staff welcomed us back to the same room, as my wife is blind and appreciates familiar surroundings. Thoroughly recommended once more especially as booking via the hotel website includes a splendid breakfast with fruit, cereals etc and a hot option -- not merely croissants and coffee although both of course are also available. No bar, garden or evening meal but who needs them when everything is within easy walking distance; good bars and restaurants; all the shops as well. Personal service makes this our top choice in Nice, having been disappointed at far "swankier" hotels on the Promenade which is only a short walk away. Many thanks to all the staff -- very professional people all with vg language skills

    « Still A Good Choice - Especially For Diet Problems »

    We last stayed here 11 years ago, and the hotel has certainly improved, most noticeably in the breakfast room, which is now more spacious and welcoming. I was particularly impressed that the hotel had responded to my request for gluten-free bread and soya milk at breakfast, for which there is an wide and varied choice. The lift however is still cramped - little room for more than 3 people. We enjoyed our stay. The only slight niggles: the room lighting was subdued, and I found my bed a little too hard (my wife said hers was fine). On the plus side, we appreciated the provision of a fridge that was purely for our own use, and a safe that was free of charge.

    « Good hotel, great location »

    Stayed here for four nights on vacation in a superior room. The room had more space than I expected and was OK to sit in. Ours overlooked the street and there's no hiding away from the street noise, at least when the window is open. You're in Nice and the streets are noisy! Room was equiped with a Nespresso machine which was great and the beds were OK. Bathroom was fine, nothing really to point out, except that the shower didn't give out much water. You needed some patience. We had breakfast on one day. At 12 EUR it's not unreasonable, for a reasonable buffet, but there are plenty of other places just outside if you're happy with just say a cafe, croissant and orange half that price. The location is great, a few steps from the pedestrian area and just a few steps from the tram and buses. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The wifi worked well, except you had to login each time you came back to the hotel, no big deal, just enter the code and any fake e-mail address will connect you.

    « Good location, average standard. »

    The hotel is situated close to the old town, the shopping street and the beach, so it's in a good location! However, some of the rooms are pretty dated. We traveled as a group, and while some of us were very happy with the rooms, my roomie and I got a room overlooking a scruffy backyard, and outside our window hung no less than 4 air condition units. This made it near impossible to sleep with the window open, and to top it off, there was carpet flooring which didn't smell too nice. We had to pay extra for the breakfast, 12€ per day, and it was pretty basic, not worth the cost. Except from that, the stay was pleasant. The room was equipped with tv, safe, fridge and kettle, and there was free coffe in the reception area after breakfast. All in all, not too bad, but not great.

    « Great Location in Nice! »

    For the price this hotel was fine. The location is great, walking distance to the beach, flower market and main square. The walls are paper thin though so not ideal. Our neighbors returned to their room at midnight and proceeded to slam doors and yell. Second night they did the same at 11 pm so we were coherent enough to call the front desk. They did quiet down after a call from them. Hotel is clean with a very courteous staff.

    « A very good three star »

    Great location, staff, breakfasts and cleanliness. The room we got initially was very small but the staff changed it for us. No fuss, no hassle, everybody was extremely nice and pleasant. Never book room only, the buffet breakfast was very good value and quality

    « Long Weekend »

    Picked hotel because of the family room to accommodate ourselves and two teenage sons. Check in was quick room was more than adequate for our needs. Breakfast was very nice and hotel was in a good location with the added bonus of a fridge in the room ideal for promenade and train station.Staff were all helpful would have no hesitation in staying again.

    Great location, food, room, everything was amazing. And the staff was super friendly! If you want to have a good experience in Nice I highly recommend this hotel weather by car or by airplance. :) L))

    « Ideally situated in the heart of Nice »

    We spent three nights in the Hotel Roosevelt in August. We had chosen a Best Western Hotel because the previous year we had stayed for three nights in one in Cannes and been happy with the large room size, the location and the additional outdoor space and roof terrace. On booking Hotel Roosevelt we knew there was no roof terrace but had not realised the rooms would be quite as small. They are adequate though and adequately furnished with fridge, TV, coffee and tea making facilities and a small en suite. The second issue with this hotel is the traffic noise which can be avoided by booking a room at the rear of the hotel. The front and the side of the hotel have quite noisy roads. On the plus side this hotel is ideally located near the seafront and the old town with varied restaurants and bars nearby. It is in the heart of Nice and a brilliant location for exploring the town. The reception area is bright and welcoming and the staff were very helpful. The breakfasts were excellent at 12 euros to include eggs, sausages, cereals, fruit, cheese, cold meats, and even sun dried tomatoes!

    « France Vacation »

    We visited France, several days in Paris and 3 days in Nice. We stayed at the Best Western in Nice. Great location, near to the beaches and shopping areas as well as the tram. Extremely helpful front desk staff. They suggested restaurants and tours that were great. They also provided assistance with public transportation and advice on getting around. The room was adequate. The size good based on European standards. Good closet space and lots of hangers. Good strong shower spray (water pressure). WiFi provided. Breakfast is a choice (but we did not take this option). Bed was comfortable. Air conditioner was inconsistent in keeping room comfortable and the directions for using it were difficult to understand. Toilet is separate from the rest of the bathroom, which has its benefit, but the sink is located in the bathroom so you have to walk through the bedroom to wash your hands. Overall, an excellent experience.

    « Golden wedding anniversary in Nice »

    We went to Nice and the Best Western Hotel Roosevelt as part of our Golden Wedding anniversary celebrations. We could not have chosen a better hotel for it's price, central location, size and comfort of our room and the friendliness of the staff

    « Retired to Travel »

    The area the hotel is located in is nice with a great old town experience. The lobby and breakfast area is nice and clean. The staff is helpful. The rooms are dated and some rooms smell awful.The rooms that have been updated, the workmanship is poor. Breakfast is not free to those that receive a special internet rate, example, AAA. We do not recommend this hotel.

    « Location, Location »

    Good for its location..! It is located 5 minutes to beach, 7 -8 minutes to Massena Square, 10 minutes from train station..... However, if you require hi speed wifi then you are going to be disappointed! Don't expect a spacious bedroom or elevator...
