Clean, comfortable bed, convenient location

Mix up when I arrived as no reservation for me! Hotel staff called the agency to confirm my booking and eventually after an hour's wait we were given the last room in the hotel! Not sure who's fault this was. Whilst waiting had a drink from the bar, one small cup of coffee and my daughter had a small hot chocolate.....10 Euros! Wouldn't have minded if it had been a large cup. Very expensive. Had a glass of wine one evening which was 7 Euros for a 125ml glass. Apart from the cost the bar staff were not very friendly or welcoming and the service was incredibly slow and there was only myself and one other person being served on all occasions. On the plus side the breakfast was good with a nice variety of food and all seemed fresh. Rooftop swimming pool pleasant although quite busy in the afternoon and not enough sun shades which was essential. When the wind gusted the shades were lifting out of the paving slabs and being dragged along the ground resulting in them having to be put down and we had to bake in the sun instead! The maid service was very good with towels changed daily and clean sheets every other day. Tea and coffee replenished daily. Great to have a mini fridge in the room to keep snacks and wine and fresh milk. Overall we enjoyed using the hotel as a base to explore the city but rather impersonal and faceless to spend too much time in. Ideal for the business traveller.

Good week with marvellous weather.

Good location within easy reach to shops, restaurants and city. Useful tram ride route into city and beach. Short train ride to Monaco 20 mins, comfortable but not so scenic as by bus 100 from Garibaldi Square. Make sure to get a seat on bus as it is a winding ride. Cheap fares by bus or train. Friendly French people, always helpful if you're approach them. Overall hotel is comfortable and relaxing with friendly staff. Could do with a bigger swimming pool!

the perfect hotel for your trip to Nice

We have just come back from a short stay at the Novotel Nice Central. It is amazing. We didn't know what to expect, but everything about the hotel was perfect. The reception staff were very kind and helpful. The room was huge, with a large king size bed, tv, fridge, safe and a love bathroom. It was clean with lots of soft fluffy towels. The hotel itself was within reach of everything that Nice has to offer. The trams are right outside, so you can get around cheaply and easily. I couldn't have asked for a better hotel.
