This is a great place to stay if you wish to be near the sites and sounds of Nice. About 10 min walk to the old town and 5 mins to the Promenade de Anglais. The accommodation is spacious and quiet so ideal to be away from the busy tourist sites. Great welcome and support when required from Roxanne. Definitely would recommend this as a place to stay.
We REALLY enjoyed the apartment - perfect location between jumping on the train, shopping and the beach. Hosts were always there for us if we needed anything.
This is a terrific, upper floor, apartment, with a lift, located on a quiet, more residential street in Nice. It's a very straightforward and easy walk to pretty much everyplace one would wish to visit -- 10 minutes or less to the Promenade Anglais, the Old Town area, the train station (for day trips to Villefranche, Antibes, Monaco, etc.). You can also walk to the Old Port for boat trips very easily all along the Promenade Anglais (about 20- 25 minutes). It's located just a block off Rue Dolpazzo, a small street with lots of excellent local restaurants.
The apartment is sunny, spacious, and looks like the pictures on the website. We never felt crowded and enjoyed being close enough to visit everything we wanted to see in Nice, but then also being able to retreat to a quieter environment for the night.
As others have mentioned, Roxanne, the manager, is stellar. Every interaction with her was prompt, pleasant, and very well informed. Working with her was a pleasure and made the process of booking and follow through for the apartment very smooth. We would most definitely recommend this apartment for both individuals and families.
The place looks as good as it does on the website. It is clean, spacious, bright and airy. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and tableware. Appliances are modern and well kept. It has a nice layout, with two sets of doors to the kitchen. It makes it very convenient if you happen to use the living room as an extra bedroom at night. You can then shut one set of the doors to the kitchen and you have complete privacy.
The spacious living dining area provides a very comfortable place to sit around, relax and wind down after a hectic day of travelling. AC works well and is individually controlled in each room.
It is centrally located, yet in a quiet neighbourhood. Many of the places of interest are within walking distance. The famous Promenade des Anglais is about 10 or so mins of walk. To mention a couple of other places of interest like the Flower Market is about 20 mins walk. To Castle Hill, a picturesque lookout point is about 25 mins away. Then there is the supermarkets around the block and the many popular restaurants, shopping malls, and cafés, patisseries within 20/25 mins walk. For those who like some fun with the one arm bandit, the casino is right by the famous promenade.
The building is right across from a hotel. The advantage to this is that when you book tours you can ask to be picked up outside the hotel as some of the tour companies do not pick up from private addresses.
What makes this place even better is the great service provided by the manager Roxanne. She is very helpful, approachable, and most of all responds to requests and questions very promptly. When we informed her that we ran out of garbage bags, soon after we found it delivered to the door. When we couldn’t figure out how to operate the oven, she offered to come over.
Because of the good service provided by Roxanne, I am rating this as a five star. Service aside, I would not hesitate to recommend this place.
Thank you Roxanne for doing your best to make our trip a successful one. You are a gem!!
Roxanne was always a available to answer any question we had about the apartment before leaving to Nice. Upon our arrival she was there on time and she did her best to give us as much info as possible. In the first couple of days when we were trying to make decisions about what to do and where to go, she was accessible with as much details as possible. Our family thank you Roxanne for your help and wish you a wonderful summer.
