8/10 Very good

This is a great place for the casual traveler or those who will be on the go a lot. A restaurant (7a-11p, or close to it) adjoins the hotel, but they are two separate establishments. The Tram Line 2 stops less than one block from the hotel, so save your cab fare from the airport, as the tram is only 1.5 Euros (it is a slight pain to register for an account to purchase and use tickets from your mobile). The hotel has a small elevator and a wide staircase. I spent three nights there and only randomly encountered other guests. Some property notes: phone the property from outside the door to be let in as the front (street) door is always locked. When you get a key, one is to the room and the other is to the front door, which makes the place very secure. The lobby has some beach toys and chairs to use, and since the beach is really large pebbles, you definitely want something to sit on (I took a blanket from the room). The old school manager is very pleasant, and extremely knowledgeable about the area; ask for a walking map, it's quite helpful. Amore Gelato is delicious, a few blocks away; there are two supermarkets within two blocks, lots of small eateries, and the tram will take you downtown to the throng of restaurants, shops, and the mall. Nice is very navigable by public transit--the Chagall and Matisse museums can be reached by the 67 bus. The Parc Phoenix was a disappointment (it was definitely suffering from the heat), but Monaco and Monte Carlo more than made up for it.

6/10 Good

Was an okay stay, but check in is very very late (4pm??) and check out was super early (10:30 am???) which was the main downside. Also the entrance is always locked so you have to call owner to enter. The rooms were nice, nothing too fancy - worth the price. I asked for flowers which the owner tried his best - Altho he charged 20€ for this which it was not worth it. Nice views from the room, good for sunrise No toilets to use AFTER check out. Which was very annoying considering how early we have to check out

Great location with tram and bus stop nearby
Airport shuttle no longer available so not knowing about the trams, ended up being stung for 40 euros for a 5 min taxi ride. Receptionist guy quite helpful but could have been more so, considering we'd never been there, he was very vague. Room very simple and not very good shower, but bed good and we were out mostly anyway.

4/10 Fair

The location is great. The owners are very nice as well. However, the hotel needs a complete upgrade. At one time this sweet charming building must have been lovely. Now it is in disrepair and disorder. The lobby is cheap looking and strewn with brochures on the plastic coffee table, the concierge desk is a total mess. I arrived early and the owner Patrick was kind to lock my luggage in a closet until my room was ready. Upon entering my room was a bit shocked to see the old flooring decayed in places. The curtain hangs on a thin wire clearly needs to be replaced. The closet doors had handles at one time but, now has none, only holes where the handles were. There were some hangers. The bathroom was sad. The glass shelf over the sink held by two rusty brackets were gross. The handle to operate the shower had a veneer on its' handle that kept falling off. There are no shelves in the bathroom to place your toiletries other than the glass shelf. What was troublesome was my door lock. This hotel has keys which is fine except, my entry door handle was loose which made locking the door from the hall upon leaving diffcult. I never write reviews and this one is not to be punitive but, hopefully Patrick and his wife will hire a consultant to help them execute an entire upgrade of this sweet, lovely building. I did feel safe and had a lovely, lovely view from my room. I am most grateful for that. A Velo bike station is across the street and access to the public beach across the street.

4/10 Fair

Hotel Magnan Offers very poor value for money. The whole building is in need of refurbishment, paint-work in our room was flaking, our bathroom door was badly damaged by water from the shower, and our balcony railing was rusting. Breakfast (room only) at €8.00 was very basic and too expensive when compared to a much better fare in Ibis at €6.50. On the plus side the hotel was clean, and the location was ideal, but I am not likely to return
