Great location close to the old towm and the Promenade des Anglais. Good views of the city from the roof terrace.
If you like 4 or 5 star hotels with modern, renovated decor, amenities and services, then this property is not for you. But, if you are open to experience something more personal, authentic and to live a bit by a local, this could be your best choice. This is a very charming but older top floor apartment. It is a large, by European standards, bright two bedroom with its many windows, vibrant colours and Provence like personal decor... but with some quirks. Toilet is off the kitchen with two steps up and bathroom located off the second bedroom which you have to access by the first bedroom. Floors are not perfectly level so you have to remember to step up and over from the kitchen to living room and again to the terrace, and you may have to duck around some of the light fixtures. Washing machine is on one of the two bedroom balconies but actually makes sense to save space and perfectly handy for drying laundry over the balcony. But for us, that just all added to a home away from home, and you quickly adapt. You will absolutely adore the good sized terrace with its amazing rooftop views of Nice, and so welcome for relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Location could not be better, with a pleasant 5 minute stroll to old Nice, 8 minutes to Promenade des Anglais and the important bus routes, including the airport express, all within 10 to 15 minutes. Two supermarkets, an epicerie, a boulangerie/patisserie and brasserie are all just a minute away to add to your taste of local life. The apartment has everything you would need, with a fully equipped kitchen, flatscreen TV, good WiFi, hairdryer, towels etc. Just bring your own bathroom soap and shampoo products as this is not a hotel. And remember, there is no concierge but owner and her rep were most available to help with questions before and during your stay. We absolutely loved our stay.
Ps....The building entrance can be a bit discouraging...long and narrow, definitely in need of updating, a bit dark and dank...which you need to overlook until the the very small elevator (but there is an elevator!) takes you to this wonderful oasis.
Lovely flat, sunny and airy with all- round views and very pretty decor. We experienced very changeable weather and there were always beautiful skies and changing colours throughout the day. We soon got used to hanging out our laundry over the balcony with a dizzying drop. The neighbours were friendly and even invited us in for a look around their flat to compare and contrast. The main enjoyment for us was that we could see how carefully chosen all the contents of this flat were; furniture;crockery;art;ornaments all contributed to a very sweet and pleasant environment. The seagulls jumping on the roof at night were annoying and often woke me in the single bedroom but you can't control wildlife! The bonus was the swifts at sunset, whistling and diving around in the sky. Ideal for any artist, poet or person in need of a pretty retreat. We saw storms rolling in; rainbows and perfect blue skies - sometimes in the space of a single day. I decamped from the single bed onto the sofa bed one very warm night and was more comfortable. The person in the double room slept well throughout. Access to the shower was through the single room but we managed. For us two older women, friendly and willing to compromise, the flat was perfectly charming. I would definitely return(exchange rates permitting!). Location, cleanliness and equipment were all as described by Roberta. Thank you for having us.
Great location to the old town, parks, beach, and shops. Grocery store just a 5 minute walk up the road, and a bakery 2 doors down from the apartment complex. Lots of restaurants within walking distance as well. It's an old establishment, but very quirky. The only downside i'd have, is that my husband is 6"3 and hit his head on the kitchen light bulb a few times, and we found the double bed to be very springy. Apart from that, it was great to be able to sit outside each evening with great wine and cheese. Very clean and a very good service.
