Arm yourself with a detailed map because even with the printed hotel name and address the taxi managed to drop us off at the wrong place and we had to drag our trolley bags around asking for directions until we found someone who pointed us in the right direction. Thankfully it was within walking distance - just that it was...

2 nights in Aug '13. The good: location, location, location. Friendly staff. The bad: Room we had was quite rundown, and didn't feel like a 3-star standard at all. Breakfast is a rip off - 7€ for a couple of bits of bread + condiments and a tea. Hotel has no front fascia so is easily missed on Place Massena....

We booked this hotel having read other reviews on Trip Advisor, and stayed for 3 nights late July. Reassuringly pretty much everything was borne out in reality, and our expectations were fully met. We had a 3/4 bed room overlooking the rear of the hotel. It was roomy and recently renovated. The compromise was that it offered peace and quiet...

Firstly, the location is fantastic - So close to the thriving Old Town and 5 minute walk to the Promendade des Anglais! When we first arrived outside the hotel, we thought we had booked a dingy room on the first floor block of apartments, however we were warmly welcomed by the staff who are so welcoming and helpful - a...

Nothing fancy but a five minute walk to beach and around the block from Old Town. Stayed in a room yet to be renovated but it was neat and clean. Room #2 - apologized for giving us non-renovated room! Folks at the desk were extremely helpful making boat reservations and giving travel tips. You can walk -15 minutes to train...

My family of four stayed here last week for four wonderful days. We had never been to Nice before and I was unsure about where to stay. I booked this hotel off of reviews from tripadvisor and Rick Steves Europe 2013 book. We stayed in an updated room facing Place La Messena.It had two queen beds in it and sufficient...

As many reviewers have pointed out - the Hotel de la Mer has a *great* location on Place Massena at the west end of old Nice. It's a relatively small hotel (~10 rooms) in an old building. It had the great feel of comfortable, clean, friendly, but no frills European hotel. I've also stayed in the 5-star Boscolo on the...

We stayed here over the Monaco Grand Prix weekend as finding reasonable priced accommodation was non existent and therefore we were just trying to find somewhere where we wouldn't need to win big at the casino to afford our room. Even though we paid a premium I am very glad we picked this hotel. Very clean, great central location (if...

Spent two nights in this hotel. Friendly greeting and helpful staff. Rooms are small and sparse but very clean- new shower and entire bath seems newly done. Best thing is a reasonable price in a prime location. Right on Place Messena, 1 block to the old town- 2 blocks to Promenade des Anglais. Definitely a recommendation .
