Residence Hipark Nice

It was a somewhat frustrating experience as this place has some potential to be great, but falls just short in almost every category. I will start with the positive. The reception staff were mostly good and especially the lady working there was very helpful. The location of the hotel is actually pretty good. It's not that far from the old town or the port and there are tram, bus and train stops nearby. There is a shopping centre just opposite with a big Carrefour in it so if you do your own cooking you will find anything you need from there. There are also smaller grocery stores and some good restaurants within easy walking distance. We had the family room and it was big enough for the four of us. The room was quiet enough. I often need to wear earplugs in hotels but not this time.Now the more frustrating things. When we arrived the room was pretty clean, but not spotless as there was dirt on carpet and stains on curtains (I don't even want to guess what that is). The wifi worked pretty well in the living room but not at all in the other rooms. There was always enough warm water and the water pressure was good, but the usability of the "modern" shower was very bad. The beds were quite ok for me but too hard for my wife and children. The kitchenette is pretty good, but there is not a knife you can actually cut anything with so we had to buy our own. There are also no wine glasses which is quite odd as we are in France and all. Scissors would have been nice too. WC doesn't have a sink in it so you always need to walk down to the bathroom to wash your hands. There were not enough dishwashing machine tablets (only two) or toilet paper for one week but you can get more from the reception. The gym is very small and doesn't have any real gym equipment. The sauna is also very small but no one probably ever uses it anyway.It's just silly that you don't get any cleaning service if you stay for exactly 7 nights but you do if you stay a shorter or a longer period. Not that we really needed it that much but I can't really understand why they do that. We didn't try the breakfast as it was ridiculously expensive. You get a decent lunch with the same money.If you can get a room with a good price this place can still be recommended with some reservation, but I will probably look elsewhere the next time I visit Nice.
Hotel was really good, i stayed in a studio (clean and nice). The bed was a double sofa bed so I missed a better mattress but for a long weekend was good. Receptionist 24h and really helpful. Shopping center opposite the hotel, more than convenient.
Great place to visit. Hotel was very good. Great location near a small train station with easy access to all resorts. The suite was small but functional. Yes, the position of the toilet is odd and yes the carpets could do with a deep clean but the positives outweigh the negatives. The room was cleaned every other day, and towels replaced at the same time. The staff were extremely helpful and enhanced our visit with their knowledge of the area. The location, as said is ideal being close to a supermarket, train station, eateries etc. The old town is within walking distance and is a must to visit as are the amazing public gardens. I would go back and certainly stay here again.
We stayed in a ground floor apartment, with private terrace and kitchen. The apartment was modern and a decent size. The hotel itself was very clean and the staff very hospitable. The rooftop pool is really just a plunge pool, but adequate, clever photography makes this look larger. The gym is just a couple of treadmills and a few stationary bikes. The hotel is convenient for the local shopping centre - Less than a minute's walk. The tram stop - Acropolis is approximately a 5 minute walk from the hotel, with the centre of Nice reached in less than 5 minutes, or a pleasant 25 minute walk. Recommended as very good value for money, with local amenities on the doorstep.
The Hipark is situated 5 to 10 minutes walk from the centre of Nice, beach and harbour. The accomodation was clean and and the rooms adequate for our holiday. All the staff were friendly and helpful towards us. Extra pillows were not a problem or obtaining clean towels. The pool was quite small but suited its purpose, however it would have been better if loungers or chairs were available to guests on and around the decking area. Dont book expensive taxi's from the airport. You can catch the 98 bus into the centre of Nice for 6 euro's each then take the tram for 2 stops in the direction of the hospital for 1.50 euro each. This journey takes about 45 minutes in total and much cheaper than the taxi's. Also you can take the 100 bus from Nice harbour to Monaco for 1.50 euro each way per person which is excellent value for money. On the whole we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Nice and our stay at the Hipark. We would return to this same accomodation, which gives you the option to dine in or out. There are plenty of places to eat all within walking distance of the apartment, and there is also a very large supermarket directly accross the street to fill your fridge with the excellent wine available at very cheap prices. Our 1st time in Nice and will not be our last.
