I stayed at this hotel on 3/4 July and it was a good value hotel for Nice where Hotels tend to be pricey at this time of year. This hotel is roughly comparable with a Travel Lodge in the UK.
Some of the reviews on this site suggest that the hotel is in a bad area. It is about 2 mins from the railway station which means that the area is really busy until quite late. I walked back to the hotel at around 11pm and the area was quite busy so although there were some sex shop type places on the opposite side of the road, the area was still busy with ordinary people.
It is easy to miss the entrance to the hotel which is set up above the street and is accessed from an escalator. The exterior of the hotel is not the best but that doesn't really matter for once inside there is everything that you can want.
There is a bar area near reception and an internet area on the corridor off reception on the way to the lifts. Use of the computer terminals was free but there was also free wifi through the hotel.
I stayed in room 707 which was a double room, smallish but adequate. As noted by other reviewers the bed was very comfortable.
The breakfast was 9 Euros which was very good value as it was buffet style and eat as much as you like. This compared with the cheapest local cafe breakfast i could see which was 7.95.
The hotel is located about 15-20 mins walk from the sea front. you can also catch the tram/ bus from the railway station.
All in all a decent hotel which i shall be using again
