Location: Downtown, 300 metres from the sea and the Promenade des Anglais.
Room was comfortable with 1 chair to sit in. Lots of storage space. Had the privilege room which is worth the extra cost as mini bar was stocked up each day with water and soft drinks. We did not have the breakfast as at 18 euros each per day this is very expensive. There is a supermarket literally next door which stocks fresh pastries, etc which was perfect with the nespresso coffee available in the privilege room, or a normal cup of tea or coffee using the kettle in the room. The hotel also has a lovely roof terrace which was a nice suntrap in the middle of winter.The hotel is ideally placed close to all the major attractions and so walking distance to everything. Bars and restaurants are only a 2 minute walk, and the train station to Cannes/Monaco, etc is less than a kilometre away.
This is a quirkily decorated hotel which means that you'll either love it or hate it - there is no in between. The location is great - a five minute walk from the centre and the staff were very helpful. The room was mostly clean but I did step on a scary hairball and didn't want to think about where it came from. However a great location and good value.
Overall my husband and I had a good stay with this hotel. The lobby is large, clean and bright with beautiful fresh orchids, however, neither of the computers worked while we were there. This was not a huge issue for us as we were not printing attraction tickets, however, this could be an issue for someone relying on them for connectivity. Our room was lovely, double bed, 2 cupboards (one with shelves and one with a rail), large TV, nice view out onto other buildings. It was hot in the room even with the heat off & window open. There was an interesting headboard with a brightly coloured clown faces and carnival type images. Shower had a large rain head & handheld option. There was a lounge up on the roof which had wonderful smelling thyme and rosemary bordering it with large sun chairs that overlooked the neighbourhood. The one thing that I was disappointed in was breakfast. For my husband, there was a lot of choice. About a dozen breads, 2 types of meat, a few cheeses, fruit, yogurt, hard/soft boiled eggs, juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cold cereals. The problem for me was that despite writing the hotel in advance when we booked a room with breakfast they were not able to tell me what the ingredients were of any of the items on their breakfast buffet. We had stayed at the Mercure Saint Germain De Près in Paris immediately before our arrival in Nice and they had shown me on my first morning a list of the items they had on their buffet and they had a list of all the common allergens that might be in the food. That was fantastic, this Mercure however, had a staff member who when asked which items I would be able to eat and not eat didn't seem to understand that I was allergic to nuts when we explained this to her and pointed out which foods had obvious nuts, dried fruits and gluten but didn't know if any of the items had a "may contain" which had been the case in Paris. When asked if they had an allergen spread sheet like they had at the Mercure in Paris we were told that "not enough people have allergies for us to do that". Which I find interesting as published peer reviewed research has shown that 14% of people from France and the UK, and about 22% of people from Italy, Germany and the US report at least one food sensitivity (see Burney et al., Allergy, 65: 1182–1188). I'd have been better going to the grocery store next door as it would have been safer and less expensive.
The locations is very nice - close to everything. Rooms are ok, smaller than usual, but the weird clown paintings on the walls scared my wife sometimes :)Fair price policy. Don`t expect nothing but usual 3-star service.
Good for a medium level hotel, not far from the center (5 to 10 minutes walk), neat and clean. we stayed with our baby and had no problem. liked the way room wall was painted. definitely prefer to stay there again
