“Beautiful modern apt in the old town”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We found the apartment a welcome surprise as we have stayed in french apartments before and they tend to be "compact" to say the least but Shapphire apartment was spacious and both bedrooms were good size doubles. Everything was very modern and as long as you don't mind a three story hike up the stone steps (there's no lift) we would definitely recommend this as a good base for a stay in Nice. 2 mins from the port (where bus to Monte carlo stops) and a few minutes walk to Garabaldi Square, we were soon able to navigate our way without the need for taxis. The main promenade des Anglais is a good 20 minute walk but the journey there trough the cobbled streets of the old town is all part of the fun. We would stay again when next in Nice.

Rented the sapphire apartment for a week in september, for my wife and i. The apartment has two bedrooms and a sofabed. It was very spacious for two (or a family) but this was a last minute booking. Overall, i would book this apartment again

Pros
Clean and newly renovated apartment inside
Kitchen has all that is needed- fridge, stove, washing machine, dishwasher. No dryer, but have an outdoor clothes line.
The apartment is conveniently located near garabaldi square, the port, the buses to Monaco and the boardwalk.
Phone Available to call Canada for free


Cons:
Internal apartment is great but the common building hallway is in need of renovation.

Our family of 4 (with young children) stayed at this apartment for a week. Location is great, walkable to the Nice port and old town. Also 5 mins walk to Place Garibaldi where there are restaurants and boulangeries. The apartment is nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. The property manager was very helpful, giving us tips about places to go and assisting us with dinner reservations etc. Highly recommend it.
