This is a good hotel right in the centre of Nice. Having been to Nice before we roughly knew where it was. It is next to the main shopping area, five mins walk to the beach and ten mins to the train station. Rooms might be small but. We had a balcony and had all the facilities you would need....

Its the little things that make a hotel great and equally the little things that make it not so great. Hotel near lots of shops, bus stops and tram line making it perfect for days out. 15 min walk to Gare de Nice Ville to get trains to Monaco and Cannes. Reception staff could learn to smile occasionally. Breakfast room...

A good basic hotel conveniently situated opposite Galeries Lafayette, on tram line, 2 minute walk to Place Massena, 10 minute walk to the old town with the market, bars and restaurant. Rooms generally moderate size, our double room at the front was a good size, the family room was a decent size but small shower, twin room at the back...

We were in Nice pre River cruise, our flights meant we had a couple of days to spend in Nice. We picked this hotel based on location and reviews, well we were not disappointed. This is a great small hotel centrally placed, close to local transportation and restaurants. Easy walk to the seafront. The hotel rooms are small but very...

My husband and I stayed here in May last year and were very happy with the hotel's excellent location, so we didn't hesitate to book Hotel Univers once again when we decided to go to Nice to celebrate our 25th anniversary last week. I requested one of the rooms that have a balcony and got one - perfect, I thought....

We loved everything: perfect location (near Old Town, the beach, railway station, shopping area, good restaurants); our clean room with a balcony almost facing place Massena; very friendly and helpful staff, especially Nicolas. Will return there for sure!

This hotel could not be more better located. You are a 5 minute walk from the beach. It is right in the shopping area super close to all the bars restaurants and shops. The bathrooms are small and the rooms fine but lets face it, hoe much time will you be spending in the room in Nice?

This is a good hotel in a very good location, 2 minutes walk from Massena Square and 10 from the Old Town. It is 15 minutes walk from the train station. The rooms are quite compact in that there isn't a lot of space around the beds but as people who spend the minimal time in the room, this wasn't...

Well located, clean, decent room for a one -night stopover in Nice on our way out to Provence. Only issue was the cost of the parking, which was a seven minute walk away. No pull-in area outside of the hotel to unload or load luggage. Helpful conciege.

The hotel is in perfect location , city Centre in short walk distance. Front office staff where handling our check in very fast The only cons is the breakfast wasn't had a lot of variety. I do recommend this hotel location wise. It could be much better if they improve the breakfast
