A really beautiful area of Nice, quiet and close to the beach. This hotel was on the stop of a group tour and due to being sick I spent a lot of time indoors here. We had a twin room booked but got a room with two single beds and a bunk bed! Great for putting our bags on but...

The hotel's advantages are location, a few blocks from the beach and pedestrian zone, and a nice staff. The hotel is a little dated -- but also I think a good value. Our rooms were clean and tidy, the elevator worked, the breakfast was good enough. You have to leave your key at the front desk when you go out,...

We have just returned home from a lovely break in Nice. Our stay at the Hotel Busby was for 10 nights. On our arrival we were a little disappointed with the first impressions of the hotel, but as we relaxed into our holiday the Busby began to grow on us. The staff were very helpful & friendly our room was...

To be fair the staff do seem to care and are nice, which is why i didn't give it one star - but thats where it ends. Moldy, dusty, old, charges you for wifi, a rotten breakfast - this place is great if you want to punish yourself. Really needs to be refurbished or just torn down.

On a recent European trip we were part of a tour group that had occasion to stay at the Hotel Busby for several nights. The hotel had seen better days in past years and so we attempted to look beyond the shabby exterior toward its providing us with a place to sleep with basic comforts and necessities. The best feature...

Stayed her 2 nights and you have to hand your key is before you go out. They actually came outside and asked me for it so I did. When I got back at midnight the desk was unattended with all the keys laid out! Anyone could have picked up our key and taken our passports from the room. The room...

Stayed here in summer of 2012.. Couldn't have asked for a better hotel! classic charm from the balcony and French doors to the stained glass windows and old fashioned telephone booth. great staff and great atmosphere. this hotel captures the French Rivera like no other, good walking distance as well. loved L'Hotel Busby.

Stayed for 1 night thus far and am currently trying to get some sleep on the second night. The walls are paper thin. Our room is orientated poorly, with the bed head against the wall to the hall. If anyone talks in the hallway, or walks past, it's enough to wake you. It doesn't help that the Hotel has made...

We stayed for 2 nights. Rooms were outdated rooms that had ants everywhere. MY partner ended up with some sort of weird bites the next day - not bed bugs but some sort of bite. Could use an upgrade but loved the massive bathroom. If you get this for less than $50 a night it is worth it otherwise I...
