“Nice, small apartment, great view, helpful owner, good price but not perfect!”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

We were pleased with the apartment in general - very clean, with particularly nice lounge area and bathroom (bed area is very cramped - the person nearer the wall needs to climb over the other to get out). The wifi was good, and location not bad - near the nice old town, castle hill and port area, with lovely view and helpful owner communiciation (such as advice on when to leave to get to the airport). Price was good. But a couple of things made it less than 5 star for us.

In particular there was building work on the balconies of the whole block, which mean it was being replastered, had scaffolding restricting the view, some (minor) noise during the day, and builders coming and going. The owner did forewarn us about this - the work was meant to have finished by our visit but had overrun - and we appreciated this. Given the evenings were fairly cold it didn't irritate that much, but it wasn't what we were expecting.

More irritating to us but not a major minus was the car parking inside the block (on the lower floors). We had chosen the apartment partly because we had hired a car to get to places like Eze (which was lovely by the way). But the spaces were very narrow and in particular the one we were given had two concrete pillars either side leaving very little room to get in, though our hire car wasn't massive (the space allocated is in fact a bit larger but we were told to use this - someone else was wrongly parked in the allocated space). So if you plan to have a car, and are a nervous driver like me, maybe not the perfect place, though the parking was included which can save a bit. ( PS in fact the regional buses are good and cheap during the day and go to many of the tourist villages outside Nice so we perhaps should haven't bothered .)

The other thing was that the other reviews mentioned the good bus services nearby. This was true during the day. And we used the bus once into Nice early evening. Unfortunately we had planned to use the buses to get into the centre of Nice in the evenings but all the routes finished before or around 8pm. So we walked in two days (the port is close and has some good restaurants). But being tired we got taxis two evenings, costing about £35. Worth it for us those evenings, but we had imagined using the buses. It may be different in the summer, when walking back may seem more appealing also.

Thank you for taking time to write such a detailed review. Sorry about the car space confusion, obviously somebody parked in the space allocated for apartment. Our car space is available now. The renovation works are finished in our apartment area and the scafolding is gone.
We are looking forward to welcome you again.

“AMAZING STAY!”
Reviewed 22 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

I stayed in this superbly-located apartment with a child and a spouse. The apartment is decorated up to the latest standards and has everything in it: cooker, microwave, fridge, walk-in shower, great TV, A/C, free WI-FI and fantastic balcony view! It's only 5 mins walk to the splendid promenade/city center amenities and 5 mins walk to the "Carrefour" supermarket. Bus stop is just across the road, and you can go to city center from there and to neigboring Monaco/Monte Carlo etc. I'm really hoping to stay in this apartment again someday!!!

“Amazing view, fantastic apartment.”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Had 6 wonderful nights in Nice. The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped with the most amazing view over the city and port. We enjoyed many evenings just watching the view whilst enjoying our evening meal. We hope to return to this beautiful area to discover more and will definitely stay in this wonderful apartment. Thank you Dany and Nick the apartment is a credit to you.

“Really outstanding”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The apartment was on the Base Corniche with a really awesome view over the city. Although the apartment was small, it was very well-equipped and cleverly designed. There was a washing machine, a full kitchen and we made good use of the pool too. We had a car, and there was parking, and from this location it was easy to get into Nice and up and down the coast. Without a car, though, the bus stops right in front of the complex. We were initially concerned about getting an apartment instead of a hotel for our stay on the Riviera, but it turned out to be a really good decision.
