Do you enjoy booking a holiday and being extremely disappointed with the quality you received once there? If so, this place is for you! This sham of a four star hotel offers you unlimited noise from both outside and inside the hotel. Whether it's slamming doors of all hours of the nights, strangers outside arguing below on the street or...

Beautifully styled rooms and lobby, really very friendly and helpful reception staff, always willing to help with information or anything else. Nice touch - make yourself coffee in the lobby any time you like. I also find it a good idea to "go green" (decline housekeeping service). Very clean, too. I know the staff can't do anything about it.But future...

Friend and I had a very enjoyable stay here last week. The staff were delightful and couldn't have been more helpful - tips on getting to places we wanted to go, sorting out WIFI, re-confirming our transfer back to airport on our behalf. The room was small but spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. When you walked into...

The hotel is near train station with nice and friendly staffs, the hotel style is warm and like home. I can walk to shopping street and go to beach. the bathroom accessories can improve. And room furniture can be better.

Nice, clean hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. I do recommend. Also location next to train station suited us well. Room was small but nice and clean. Bed good. Outside is quite noisy and hotel offers ear plugs for sensitive people. We had no problem with noise. Free Wifi was working well.

This was a very enjoyable, friendly hotel very near to the train station. The staff was very professional and Nice is an undisclosed gem on the travel scene. You won't be disappointed with this hotel if you are looking for convenience and reasonable rates.

Not what I expected to be honest. Close to the station, which is what I needed, this establishment is more of a large Bed and Breakfast operation rather than a hotel. No bar or restaurant and the price of €14.00 for a rather poor breakfast I was somewhat disappointed with my stay! Having said that the staff were very friendly...

We booked this hotel as part of flight + hotel package, so didn't expect much. However, they turned out to be better than our expectations. Rooms are very small, with no mini-fridge, but the staff was friendly, and breakfast was quite good. The best feature is that we could stop by at other HappyCulture hotels to avail ourselves of their...
