Location was great. Room was small but clean and up-to-date. Would have had issues WFH if I were on a business trip, but for vacation and sightseeing the facilities were great. Most importantly the hotel had AC, and even though it’s centralized you could just go to reception and ask them to change it to the setting you want.

I stayed for four days in order to visit Nice and make day trips to other towns, including Cannes and St. Paul de Vence, for which I took the train. The hotel couldn't be more convenient for the train station; it's less than 5 minutes' walk. To get to the beach in Nice is a brisk 16-minute walk. Though the block where the hotel is located isn't the most attractive (as is typical around the station), and the nearby streets are pretty empty at night, I didn't feel seriously unsafe walking back by myself from the beachfront around 11pm to midnight. Everything in the hotel room was clean and worked, including, crucially, the air conditioning. The bathroom was large and the shower was good, but the soap bottle hadn't been installed correctly in the holder on the wall and kept falling on me. I appreciated the kettle and refrigerator in the room, though would have been happier if the housekeeping staff had responded to my request for more tea after the first day. On a future trip I'd be inclined to spend more to stay closer to the beach and avoid the nighttime walks back to the hotel, but this is excellent value for money and offers outstanding convenience for transportation.

Great hotel for a low cost.
It was a great hotel for the price I paid however the bathroom had some loose fittings and lots of chips around the bathtub. Staff however were friendly, helpful & the breakfast was good.
