We arrived from airport via bus and the hotel is just a few meters from the bus stop. Upon requesting a beach view, the staff were kind to give us 6th Floor, where the first time we had a beach view from room! There is a microwave next to reception; a small sandwich shop on the same road. We recommend... More

Practical accommodation very close to the beach. Location is a very short walk to the beach and promenade. Immediate access to little cafes and shops, and 130 metre walk to laundry. Staff are friendly. Breakfast was included in our package and was very basic, but tasty.

When we visited there was significant road works occurring at the entrance to the hotel. This may have jaded our impression of the area but on the 40 minute walk into town we passed some 'interesting' locals. The hotel is one block from the Promenade des Anglais which is a positive. The buffet breakfast was ordinary and there are much... More

Location wise, particularly because of the building works, this wasn't great. Rooms wise, I was pleasantly surprised. Very spacious, comfortable and with a separate bathroom with shower. Recommended, for the price, but beware you will need your walking shoes to get to the action.

If you are looking for affordable few nights stay close to Nice airport, hotel Ibis is the perfect place. It's one block to promenade des angleis, and close to public transportation. Room is very simple but clean, free wifi, but breakfast has very few selection.

Excellent budget hotel, good location, less than a minute's walk to the beach. Close to restaurants and shops. Some rooms have a sea view. Breakfast buffet is well worth the 6 euros, as it includes bottomless tea, coffee, croissants, jam, nutella, butter, yogurt and cakes. Reception staff was friendly and helpful. There is also a free luggage storage facility for... More

Great location directly behind le Boulevard des Anglais, 15 min walk away from the city centre with restaurants, shops, etc. A small supermarket and the beach (pebbles, like all over Nice) close by.

OK, so this is a decent room for the price. A short little walk from the airport. Very clean. Comfy beds. But very small rooms. Just pretend your in a cabin on a cruise ship.
