Perfect start to finish. We had a sea view room which was amazing. Service could not be faulted and buffet breakfast excellent. Best sort of boutique hotel experience. Price wrt value for money could not be faulted. We will return!

Small, family-run hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Fairly small, ordinary room, but nice balcony with view over Nice to the sea. OK buffet breakfast. Close to Chagall and Matisee museums. Great whistling and talking parrot in the garden.

This hotel has a unique location above the center of Nice. Upper room with sea views have great vistas and even the lower rooms have access to the garden and pool. Room 101 was somewhat small but had access to a semi -private sitting area next to the outside breakfast area. Breakfast was good but not spectacular but had a... More

Travelled to Nice and stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in late September. The location, close to the Chagall Museum and away from the Promenade des Anglaise, was perfect for us as it allowed a break from the noise and bustle of the main tourist area while still being close enough that a car was not needed. The staff... More

This is a quirky little hotel, with lovely service, an eclectic decor, and beautiful views over the city. Loved the outdoor dining area, especially at breakfast. Our room was very basic and small, which was the main drawback. But overall the charm of the place won us over.

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights in Nice. The staff was so incredibly nice and friendly, they helped suggest to us where to go out to eat, what to visit, and anything else we asked about. The place itself was very nice, clean, great views, and in a great location. My wife and I went out... More

Would find it difficult to say anything bad about our stay here. Enjoyed three wonderful nights at this small hotel which I booked after reading lots of positive TripAdvisor reviews, they were not wrong! Perhaps the decor is slightly dated but the room we had was spacious enough, comfortable and clean with a wonderful view over the town and ocean.... More

This is the hotel I always stay at when on business in Nice. Quiet area so you can sleep with window open at night. Great and friendly staff with a very nice breakfast offering. Also, the Wi-Fi performance is stellar so Skype, Email, and Dropbox all work as expected. If you need to use taxis, the reception desk can help... More

Spent 3 nights in a deluxe sea view room - the view was awesome, particularly at sunset. The room was beautifully finished and the bed very comfortable. Bathroom was a little small but functional, although I did manage to soak the bathroom twice from the uncontrollable shower head. Breakfast is lovely on the outdoor terrace and don't forget to stroke... More

The hotel is only a short walk (10-15 mins) from the beach. Beautiful views of the sea from your balcony. They went out of their way to make our visit special. The breakfast spread is fantastic. Great hotel and great staff.
