“Prime location”
Reviewed 3 October 2011

I stayed here with seven other girls and between all of us we occupied three different rooms. The three and four person rooms were spacious and offered great views from the balcony. They also seemed well furnished. I was impressed by my single room, being spacious and the washroom clean. I was not impressed by the fact that when I first entered my room the balcony door had been left open so that there were flies in the room!! Also brace yourself as you will have to walk up atleast one flight of stairs to get to your room.

I wasn't impressed with the fact that the staff that checked me in neglected to tell me my room came with free internet so I went almost my whole stay without perusing this amenity. I also would have liked all the staff to have a consistent level of friendliness but with that being said, the older gentleman that works there was friendly and definitely needs to be mentioned here (oh, and he speaks English!)... I remember having a conversation with him about gypsies among other things. The cleaning lady was also friendly!

As for location, this is conveniently located near all the restaurants and everything is within walking distance, espescially the water. If you do plan to go out at night though the acoustics of this place do not afford you the luxury of making a lot of noise: We all had rooms on the top floor so that meant we had to pass by practically every room and all flights of stairs to get to the door. Needless to say 8 young girls in the south of France for the first time were not conscious of how much noise they were producing - so fair warning to you. Anyway, overall this place was value for our money and I really recommend this place for its location more than anything.

This hotel is in the best location. Wonderful cafes and nightlife right downstairs and the beach just a few blocks away. It's also a few blocks away from the tram to the train station and the express bus to the airport. The staff is friendly, helpful, and fluent in English. While I enjoy speaking French while in France, it is nice to revert back to English when you get "home". The rooms and bathrooms are sparse, but clean and comfortable. I will definitely be back!

We have booked our stay in Hotel Felix. However in our reservation we saw 'studio'. The studio's are not located at the location of the hotel.
At checkin we were given a map of the city and instructions with a pin-code to enter the building. It was two streets away, wich took us a bit out of the city centre.

The room we were given only was available for one day, so the next day we had to go back to the Hotel Felix location several times to arrange the change of rooms. The second room had airconditioning wich was not installed well. In the hallway a bucket was placed for the discharge of the water.
We had a ok stay, but not according to the booking and expectation. We selected the hotel because of its central location, and now had no easy access to the hotel reception because of the distance.

By somekind of mistake in this hotel we ended up in this aparment almost opposite side of street of hotel Felix.

We arrived early 10am and asked for whether our room is ready. Lady in desk said yes and gave us keys and address nearby. They asked depo for keys and accepted foreign european drivers licence.

This was room #1. Unfortunately the keys didn't fit any doors at the location. We got new set of keys but one fitted only on front door.

Then we got "loft" aparment (room #2) w. kitchenette and facilities and good size room with double bed and extendable sofabed. When we got room it was not cleaned, but it was soon arranged and as agreed. (Note: We arrived early). Lady first tried keys to wrong front door in in different house number (38) which he had mentioned. She said that she hadn't visited there for one year.

Next day evening I asked for hassle w. room #1. The man in reception told us lady made mistake w. room #1 which was for 2 persons not for 2 adults w. chilren age of 6 and 3. They also told that "loft" was also mistake, but we refused to move for 2 days.

After stay of two nights we were suprised (w. other lady) the "loft" price (somewhat more), but we didn't accept to pay no more than was in our papers. Small rubbish bin was not emptied during our stay.

Place and price were okay. Music in restaurant are loud until 11pm.
Be careful w. this hotel and don't pay in advance.

Room Tip: Ask price for loft, quiet rooms are behind corner

I loved Felix hotel for two reasons: location couldn't be better - in the center of everything, on a busy street in the heart of Nice, 3 mins to the beach, 5 min to old Nice and famous market etc.The price seemed too good to be true.The reason it's so reasonable is b/c/ it needs renovation, so if you are the kind of person who just needs a safe, friendly,centrally-located place top crash after exploring all day, you will be happy here. If you need a hotel where you can spend hours just hanging out, take long baths and stretch out on comfy fluffy pillows, this is NOT for you.the room was small, had all basic amenities: phone,TV,bathroom with shower,tiny balcony,coffee pot. The front desk staff, especially Jean Francoise, was friendly and helpful and spoke great English.i would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: ask for room with a balcony.

A warm welcome awaits you with the friendly staff Rebecca and Jean Francois. Relax on your balcony sipping wine and listen to the buskers on Rue Massena. Surrounded by good restaurants and close to everything. This is an ideal spot to enjoy the Promenade Anglais, and Old Nice.

Room Tip: Balcony overlooking Rue Massena. There is no lift.
