Nice Garden Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2012

We stayed here for just 2 nights (was supposed to be 3, but thanks to our airline cancelling our flight home last minute, we were forced to leave a day early). But in our very short stay we could tell why everyone loves this place - Marion (the owner) is SO kind and welcoming, really makes you feel at home. We stayed in room 2, which was right near the front entrance, but experienced no issues with noise or anything of that sort. We had a lovely view out to the garden. The room was a good size for a European hotel. Everything was clean including the bathroom. The shower stall was on the smaller size but this should be no surprise for someone who is used to traveling in Europe. And, all this for a very reasonable cost when compared to other properties in the area.

It is a really lovely, charming hotel, just a few number of rooms, not lots of bells and whistles but you don't need it!! The kindness and helpfulness of the [small but available and approachable] staff is everything!! They helped make dinner reservations for us and just were so sweet. The location of the hotel is great too, just a short walk away from the beach and the old town. And a pretty direct walk up from where bus 98 from the airport drops you off.

Since our trip was cut short (stupid airlines), we definitely plan to return to Nice one day to truly explore and when we do, we'll once again look to call Nice Garden Hotel our home!

Stayed at this hotel in mid May for 5 nights. It has many plus points such as the central location and the great service provided by the owner Marion and her staff.It has the feeling of staying in a private house more than a hotel. We opted for the hotel breakfast and were able to use the very attractive garden on 2 mornings for breakfast. Unfortunately for us it rained non stop for the last 2 days of our break but we just hade to make the best of it and walk in the warm rain.
Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We vbooked a superior room (8) and had very peaceful nights sleep.

We walked from the TGV train station to the hotel. It is really pretty easy to find. The outside of the hotel is not very impressive. But wait until you get inside! When we arrived, Marion could not have been more delightful. She was always ready to talk with you about your stay or give you directions. As Marion showed us to our room, she told us it was very romantic. My husband and I have been married for 44 years! The room was wonderful. We were on the first floor with a window over looking the lovely little garden. We could open our window at night to get the breeze. The bathroom was somewhat small but spotlessly clean. It had a great overhead shower. There was not a lot of storage but we made do for the couple of days that we were there. The location could not have been better! The beach is a block or so away from the hotel. There are very convenient stops for all the different types of transportation around the hotel. A couple of blocks away is Avenue Messena where there were many restaurants and the best gelato at Amorino. For the price, this is an absolutely amazing hotel. Other people must realize this because it was full every night we were there! When we go back to Nice, we will definitely stay here.

Just returned from a short break at the Nice Garden Hotel. It is the second time I have stayed there and would recomend to anyone. Great location, traditional French rooms, good shower, lovely garden right in the city, and a good breakfast. Marion and her family go the extra mile to make your stay a good one. We will be back.

This was my 7th trip to Nice and my 2nd to the Garden Hotel. I visit Nice every year with 3 girlfriends and now we have discovered this gem we would not stay anywhere else. The staff are truly amazing and Marion, the owner, treats us as friends and nothing is too much trouble. We had breakfast every morning in the wonderful, peaceful garden and the staff were constantly checking everything was OK and topping up our coffee. The rooms are "typical French" in style and very clean, comfortable and look out onto the beautiful garden. As previous reviews state the hotel is convenient for the beach, shops and the old town, and the public transport in Nice is very cheap and efficient - for 1 euro you can travel all along the coast on the buses. We hope to be back next year Marion and all best wishes for your mothers speedy recovery.

We had a nice, spacious, clean room with view of the garden. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Of course, it is a 2-star so there is not much luxury, but since we were out and about a lot anyway, I would happily recommend this place.

Stayed here for three nights in April. Everything was perfect. Room was beautiful, with a partially rescued ceiling painting. Bathroom facilities were cramped but perfectly adequate. Breakfast was lovely. Had it in the garden on two of the mornings. Gorgeous! But more than anything else Marianne was a perfect hostess. Friendly, chatty and ever ready to help, she explained the public transport system, printed routes and timetables and made suggestions on places to visit. Staff were equally friendly and helpful. So helpful! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends.

I would be more than happy to welcome you again at the Nice Garden Hotel!
