Apartement very nice and convenient.Hired a car but this stayed in the car park for a week as public transport was better than finding a car park.Would definately stay here again. Only gripe was the cost of parking and not having the room serviced for a week and only 3 towels for 3 people for a week. Easy to get to the beach and town centre .Lovely helpful staff no noise at night .
The apartment suites are a decent size for a family (2 adults, 2 older children) with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable bathroom. Very clean apartment, could not fault it. The apartment was nice and quiet despite being on a fairly busy road. The hotel itself is opposite a large shopping centre with quite possibly the biggest Carrefour I have ever been in! Excellent for anything you need, just be prepared for the long queues there! The old town and main shopping district is about a 10 minute walk away which is more than adequate for a city break. The city centre is very walkable and we didn't use the tram once, only a bus to and from the airport. A small pizza takeaway is situated around the corner which is a must visit if you stay here! Would definitely stay here again.
Firstly, the flight from Gatwick was short and pleasant, an hour and twenty, rather than 2 and a half owing to a stinking tail wind. Coming through passport control was equally swift and within 20 mins we were through Aeroport de Nice-Cote d'Azur and onto the streets of Nice.The plan was to take a brief walk to the train station of 'Nice Saint Augustin' and jump on the train to get to our hotel. This was easily accommodated despite a couple of minor detours owing to road and construction works along the way. We were greeted outside the station by pleasant multi-lingual staff and after parting with a mere €2.40 each, we were boarding the rather full train for the short 13min journey to 'Nice Riquier' (pronounced Ricky), which is only 0.3 miles from the hotel. Arriving on the first Monday in September we found the streets to be busy without being intimidating and we were soon at our destination. Again we were welcomed by a pleasant English speaking lady on reception. As we had arrived at midday, she was kind enough to check if our reservation was ready and polite enough to let us know that if it was, she would happily check us in early for the small fee of €25. I was pretty gobsmacked and tried not to show it, but owing to the fact we had been up since 230am we decided it best to bite the bullet and pay up so we could freshen up before sourcing lunch. If the early check in fee was warning no 1, then here is warning number 2. You WILL be charged the hotel tax per day. It is a nominal fee but certainly worth considering if you are on a budget. Having prepaid for our stay (thanks BA online) we parted with around an additional €32 and went up to the second floor to view our 'Executive Studio' which was an extra £23 over and above the standard studio. "Why bother?" I hear you ask. When we looked up the hotel, it appeared the standard studio consisted of a double sofa bed, which didn't sound too comfortable. In order to avoid this we decided to splurge and live the high life.We entered the room to be immediately presented with a quaint but spacious room with two single beds pushed together, pretending to be a large double. Having suffered a similar situation in Amsterdam previously, I raised the issue with reception. The kind lady seemed unsurprised about my query and calmly explained to me thatALL the Executive Studios are made up with coupled single beds (something I had not seen mentioned on the website). We were given the option of moving to Standard Studio, but there were unable to refund the difference. After some brief discussion, we decided to stay with what we had paid for and house keeping were able to assist by putting suitably sized sheets on the bed. In all honesty, had this this been done initially, I doubt we would have noticed. The hotel is clean and quiet with signs of fair wear and tear within the corridors. The gym basic and on the ground floor, along with the small breakfast area (€15/head - untested). The pool on the 6th floor is small but special nonetheless. More for relaxation than fun, with a lovely view of the surrounding hills and was fortunate enough to catch a brief air display from the local Red Arrows equivalent. Whilst the hotel or area didn't appear to be overly busy, I was impressed by the level of noise suppression the room gave us. Other than a rare passing of an emergency vehicle, there was very little noise. I was further surprised by the comfort offered by the bed (despite having the two singles pushed together). The studio room has a double electric hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and sink with cutlery, plates and cups for two. The bathroom is compact with a decent shower, although the unit tries to make best use of the space and it can take a short while to find the best shower angle. With regards to location, if you like being in the heart if the town, this is not for you. If however, like us, you prefer to be on the outskirts then this is for you. As a self catering establishment, they cater for a small breakfast at €15. Otherwise there is a supermarket directly across the street long with a McDonald's. Lidl is 5-7 minutes walk away and there are a number of eateries within a few minutes. Nice - Riquier is less than 10 mins walk away and from there it's a 13 minute ride to the airport or a direct train to Cannes. The trams run from around the corner and take you down to the coast. Everything is at your fingertips. To conclude there is no real luxury here, but if you're looking for functionality, this does everything you need it to.
Apart hotel exactly what it said, small but perfectly formed suite with microwave, the all important fridge and toaster, as well as a couple of hob rings perfect for 4 Very friendly helpful staff, happy to recommend places to visit, where to eat, best places to take a four year old and the easiest ways to get there.Pool on the roof was luckily quiet as our 4 yr old makes a lot of noise for someone who's shy and nervous around othersWould so stay here again, we had a very happy 5 days, we paid for parking which made life so easy, didn't try the breakfast but it was available.Lovely place to stay and so much within walking distance
The apartment hotel is close to Riquier train station. We have come back to Nice and after staying at NH we choose this hotel for our second visit. Overall value for money. We had an executive studio 25 to 28 swim with out own kitchen. I like the small balcony we could sit a bit outside. Room is modern. Downsize is the internet working very slow or not working in the room. We also had some issue with heating water. It ranned out in the evening and not so warm after 15 mins.. That was strange. Expect cleaning as per policy every 2 days. I liked the self service cafee down stairs with Nespresso. The personnel at the reception was nice and helpful. For september rates this was a good deal. You can leave suitcases if you leave later after 11 o clock checkout.
