A friend and I stayed two nights in September. The location of this charming hotel was perfect with everything in walking distance. The playful decorations in the common areas and in the room added to the charm. The room and bathroom we had were not big but well planned, clean and the bed was very good. There was enough electrical outlets for charging cell phones, power banks etc. Everyone in the staff were very nice and helpful. I loved the lush garden with the birds in the aviary and the cat. Just sitting there in the shade was soothing to the mind and soul. The doves I could live without but understand that it is hard to keep them away. We had all our breakfasts, some drinks and dinner in the garden and all of it tasted great. Next time I go to Nice Hotel Windsor will be my first choice of hotel. Cannot wait!

Room Tip: Some rooms overlooking the garden have balconies and all of them morning sun.

My wife's family has been staying at the Windsor literally for decades -- in fact, when we reserve it's in her mother's name. For the most part it delivers. Rooms are varying sizes -- the smallest are not recommended -- and, if you pay for the garage (only three slots) it will be a tight squeeze for many SUV's. Breakfast and dinner in the charming garden are excellent, with the prix fixe dinner a particularly good value. The location is excellent, a modest walk to the centrally located Place Massena and two blocks from the Promenade des Anglais stop for the airport bus. The room decorations are somewhat eclectic and the elevator has a Cape Canaveral countdown as it gets to your floor -- but that just adds to the charm.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the garden, away from the street. Smallest room(s) can be claustrophobic. Chec...

We stayed for five nights in mid April. The location is good for walking into the old quarter and down to the promenade. The arty style of the hotel is interesting as is the outdoor aviary beside the small swimming pool. We had breakfast beside the pool on the first morning but found it a bit of a battle with the wild doves landing on the tables and helping themselves to whatever food was in reach. After that experience we had breakfast in the nearby cafes. Our room was fine but one small issue was the shower screen which did not prevent water getting onto the floor and leaking out onto the bedroom carpet. We were surprised to find that cash was not accepted in the bar and drinks had to be charged to rooms. Apparently staff are not allowed to handle cash and when we returned to the hotel one night I tried to get a fifty euro note changed at reception as the taxi driver had no change. The man on reception duties was not at all helpful and said "We are not a bank". Well that may be so but Hotel Windsor in some aspects is not customer friendly!!

Room Tip: Worth getting a room with a balcony overlooking the garden area .

We stayed there for 3 nights. We had an issue with the room initially which was immediately fixed and generally the staff were really nice, especially Jeroen. He really knew how to provide good customer service. The rooms are very nicely done and the garden is stunning. The poolside is great for relaxing but not great for those looking to get some sun. The location is really good- it is around 10min from the main train station and only few minutes away from Promenade de Anglais. Couple of things that could be improved would be an iron and some toiletries in the room. It only had shampoo, no body lotion, conditioner, etc.

This is a beautiful old building which also benefits from a fairly large garden and also a small swimming pool. Rooms and public areas have eclectic decor and furnishings, our double room was pretty basic and overlooking the garden and street. Hopefully it will be refurbished and dragged a bit more up to date this winter coming.
Breakfast is served in the garden, although a hasty retreat was observed due to a downpour. There is a good choice of continental breakfast items, fruits, yoghurts, alongside a small choice of hot items. Certain of the staff were extremely competent while others looked and behaved like fish out of water.
We didn't eat in the restaurant so can't vouch for it, but the menu was different every day and looked interesting. The restaurant is not open on Sundays ...we arrived around 10.30 expecting to take a nice drink in the garden, several other people were out there too, but there was no one to serve us; no bar tender inside and begrudging service from the night receptionist .. meanwhile, others had left the garden and gone to bed.
We spent a few hours on our last day around the pool .. and regretted it because we were both bitten by insects. The garden lives up to its jungle appearance with wildlife.
