The hotel staff were very helpful with anything I needed. Our bed was comfortable , the bathroom was modern, and had lots of warm water to shower with. There is an elevator in hotel. The hotel is close to old town, citadel, train station, beach, It is also close to many cafes.

Stayed at this hotel 6-7 times now and have always found the staff very helpful and friendly. The hotel is in an excellent location just a short walk from the Promenade and close to some good restaurants.

We enjoyed a weeks stay in Nice in September 2016. The hotel is basic three star, but clean and if you want a bed to stay in it's a good option. We enjoyed the continental breakfast included and ate in the courtyard with the fountain. , very pleasant! The rooms are basic but comfortable. We found the shower good and...

I spent the weekend in Nice by myself and chose this hotel based on TA reviews. My room was spotlessly clean with a bathroom that looked like it had been fairly recently done. As is typical in Europe, the room was small, but had a good sized closet and a hot pot for coffee/tea. Also, good location a block away...

Very helpful and friendly staff. Easy 15 minute walk from rail station and one block from the sea! Room was small but clean and nice with large shower! Only two electrical outlets - none the the bathroom and can only connect one device to the internet. However, I enjoyed my stay and would return!!

Walking off the 98'bus from the airport, we had a little hard time finding the hotel. We actually walked pass the street the hotel was on. In reality De la Fontaine is around 5 minutes walking from the bus-stop. Wall-to-wall with a café and really close to the second biggest walking street in Nice. A nice hotel with a very...

Dear Sebtravelstheworld, We're sorry to hear that you had difficulty to find us. The bus stop "Congrès Promenade" is about 50 meters. We're located on the first street parallel to the famous Promenade des Anglais.
