My wife and I stayed here with her parents and our 1 year old son. Communication/coordination ahead of our arrival with Tony, the property manager, was great. He is very responsive and accessible, and even during our stay was quick to answer our questions. Tony is a pro at this and has a prepared set of notes and helpful hints listed in the apartment. He mailed the keys to us prior to the start of our trip and we mailed them back upon returning home.
The apartment is one and a half blocks away from the waterfront, and is very close to a grocery store, bank, pharmacy, and a covered open-air market. There are coffee shops and bakeries nearby (we recommend the boulangerie at the corner of Rue Rivoli and Rue de France), and restaurants of all types and price ranges. We easily walked from the apartment to the beaches along Promenade des Anglais, to Old Town, Place Massenna, even the waterfall at Le Parc du Chateau. Nice is a very walkable city, and parking is very difficult on the streets near this apartment so we recommend doing without a car.
The two bedrooms worked well for us, and we rented a travel cot for our son from a local service. The smaller of the two bedrooms is quite small, so be prepared, but it also has it's own WC en suite as well as its own private balcony. Both bedrooms as well as the kitchen and livingroom have french doors that allow a good breeze. The apartment is not air conditioned, so being able to open these doors is wonderful.
The narrow street below is often noisy, with lots of activity. However, our son was able to nap through all of that twice each day, even with the french doors open. The kitchen was fine for cooking when we wanted to eat in, and the two WCs (separarte from the shower room) were a nice convenience. We stayed here in the middle of our trip and so made good use of the laundry facilities.
All in all a very comfortable base for exploring Nice. We would happily stay here again!
