“Worst Hotel Ever”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

We had a horrible experience at this hotel. The trouble began when we first arrived and our room was not ready at 3:00pm. We were promised that it would be ready by 3:30pm but were told upon returning to the hotel that the cleaning staff would need an additional hour. There was plaster dust all over the hallway floor as the result of a renovation project, which we tracked into our room. The receptionist tried to aggressively sell us tickets for the “Nice Party Bus” three times in one afternoon. Two polite refusals should have been enough to get her to stop hawking the tickets. In addition, the window shutters were stuck open and could not be closed at night. The English skills of the hotel staff were poor at best. Avoid at all costs.

Stayed in a private room for three nights during spring break. PROS: Front desk staff was very helpful and the hostel offers a variety of services like DVD rentals, guide books, free wifi / computer access, beach chairs, and free breakfast. 5 minute walk to beach, 15 minutes to Old Nice. CONS: Very loud, could hear through the walls and outside of the room / building. Towels in bathroom also were slightly dirty and the room smelled of mildew. Would go back on a quieter weekend.

I stayed at the Hotel Meyerbeer, the room only have fans they are so hot, the lockers dont work, my stuff got taken, the staff arnt freindly especially the owner he was very agressive especially when I advised my items were taken, they overcharged my credit card. Once they have access to your credit card they make additional transactions. Do not give them you card details. One of the worse hotels I stayed in Europe & Nice..

I would never stay there again.. Dwayne

Room Tip: All the rooms are hot no airconditioning do not stay there

I travelled with 4 friends for a weekend centred in Nice and the Hostel (Hotel ?) Meyerbeer Beach proved to be an excellent base for us.
In terms of location, it is only just over a block away from the Promenade des Anglais, so the beach is only a few minutes away & in the opposite direction, the railway station (Nice Ville) is about a 10 minute walk and there is a small supermarket nextdoor.
The free WiFi signal was strong in the common area and in our room (no. 6). The staff were really helpful and friendly, the common area although quite small is laid out very well with 3 PCs with internet access, chairs & tables for eating and a couple of sofas.
The only minor issue for us was that the bathroom in our room was quite small - certainly not a major problem and overall our experience was very positive and I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Please note that this hotel markets itself as a hostel on Hostelbookers.com, which is where we booked it.

Our stay here would have been great IF the A/C worked. When we booked the room, the presence of air conditioning weighed heavily into our decision seeing as it was August and the temperature was in the mid-30's (celsius). The girl at the front desk acted like I was crazy and insisted it was working after I brought her to my room. I can assure you that all the air conditioning unit did was act as a fan. There was no cooling action. It was very hard to sleep in the sweltering heat, which is why we paid more for a room with A/C when we booked it a couple of months prior. Once we found that we had been ripped off and the A/C didn't work, we couldn't find any reasonably priced rooms in the area as they were all booked. We would have had to pay twice what we paid for this room by booking a new one at the last minute, and our budget was too constrained to do so. Opening the window let in lots of outside noise, which also made it hard to sleep. We tried not to let the poor sleep detract from our experience, but the lack of quality sleep contributed to increased stress levels during this leg of our trip.


If you don't go here in the summer, or don't mind the heat, there was otherwise no problem. The location was good. If you can't sleep when it's hot, don't stay here for any price.
