Eva R. Friends - 06/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I did not like that it was confirmed at my arrival there is my room available (arrival 11:20 am). Possible check in was 04:00 pm!! The value of the money was ok! Fast connection to airport and downtown! Regulation of Air condition myself was impossible, was once to warm during night. The outside window therefore was always very damp in the morning. I would also like to know when I get my € 30,-- back from my second credit card.

Great location tired hotel

Jurate Families - 20/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Great location with easy access to all south of France areas as well as to aeroport. Hotel in a need to be updated as soon as possible. Breakfast is so basic and such a limited choice and full of sugar! Cleaners are ok but most of the days room smelled of their sweat! But cleaning was done ! Air on is very limited not sure what would happen if it was hot weather!

Ceiling collapsed in stairwell

Room was ok. Breakfast good. However part of ceiling had collapsed in stairwell. Made staff aware in evening and just said we are aware. In morning a bucket had been placed on stairwell and no debris removed

Hotel needs to be refurbished

Customer review rating 3.9/5

Arrigo T. Couples - 19/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The budget Ibis Nice could be a good solution, but the rooms need absolutely to be refurbished as doors are seriously scratched, bathroom has black spot of moisture in the corner, and check traps brockens and other issues. The only positive point is that it seems enough clean; but definitely not at the level of Accor standard

Great stay!

anajuanperez90 Couples - 10/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

Staff members on reception are very helpful. Quality / price is really good. The rooms are very simple and not very new but the price is good. We had half an hour late check out complimentary. The location of the hotel is good in the centre and there is a direct tram in front of the hotel that goes to the airport and only takes around 15/20 min.

The nicest Ibis Budget I’ve stayed in, but unfortunately too much building noise

Customer review rating 3.9/5

Belle F. Families - 04/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The room was big and nicely decorated, a few fittings were loose and some brown spots from the occasional illegal smoking marked a table and the bathroom sink. The location is perfect, tram just outside and busses one street away directly on the Promenade des Anglais. Easy commute from and to the airport with tram, bus or Uber which would cost you about 25€. The rooms are spacious and much better than any Ibis Budget I have stayed in, they are newly decorated, ours had a lovely sea view and plenty of space to store luggage. There are an amazing wall of shelves for storing whatever needed during your stay. The bathroom was spacious and completely new too. When that’s been said, every single day during our stay there was a terrible noise from an ongoing refurbishment, in the other rooms. This was a nuisance especially for my son who got very anxious and scared by the constant drilling and hammering day in and day out. It would have been nice with a reduced rate because of this but that was not an option.

Very disappointing

Hicham B. Couples - 03/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Upon arrival at the hotel at around 5.30pm, it became apparent that there were extensive works going on in the hotel. There were workmen and building supplies everywhere. We asked reception if our room was to be far from where they were working and they assured us it would be. We were given a room on the fourth floor (room 404) but when we arrived it wasn’t ready and still needed to be cleaned. The room maids were around but they couldn’t assist us and told us to go back to reception as they had no way of contacting them and that rooms were vacated late so there was nothing they could do. When we tried to enter the lift to go back down, one lift was occupied with work materials and when the other lift came, there was a member of staff in it who upon seeing us with our suitcases said ‘oh not again’ and made no effort to step aside to let us join her in the lift. When we finally made it back to reception they gave us a different room on the 10th floor. We again were reassured that it wasn’t near the maintenance works. All was ok until around 8am the next morning when drilling and banging started, wakening us up earlier than we had planned as we had two flights to take the next day and needed a good rest. The noise was continual until we vacated our room at 12 noon, leaving the hotel more tired than when we had arrived. We spoke to reception on leaving and were basically told from 8am we need to expect anything and that they are not obliged to tell us anything about the works and that they couldn’t close the hotel to carry out the maintenance, which we must add wasn’t something we had suggested! We had actually considered paying extra for a late checkout but fortunately we didn’t. The room air conditioning wasn’t working properly. Surely it should be stated on the website when advertising, that there is extensive refurbishing works going on in the hotel so that guests have the option to take the risk or not to book this hotel!? As loyal returning customers to this chain of hotels, and this hotel in particular the experience this time has left us tired, frustrated and out of pocket for the privilege.

Nice location and budgeted

John B Family - 17/12/2018 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is excellent value for money ,and in a great location . We were in Nice to visit our daughter who had recently moved there . We stayed for 2 nights prior to my daughters arrival from Paris . The room was spotlessly clean , the staff were very welcoming and efficient , and the breakfast fresh and plentiful each day . We had a small problem with the air conditioning ,and also needed extra pillows , both were solved immediately. The location is perfect just one block from the promenade de Anglais , a short walk to old town , and only 20 minutes from the airport . We. Would definitely stay here again should we need to . A big thank you to all the staff for a lovely stay

Thank you very much for your very nice feedback. It's a really pleasure to wellcome you. We hope to see you for one other staying; for exemple in summer. See you later

Very nice comfortable stay

There should be emergy medicine available at reception since on Sunday's all pharmacies are closed in Nice and my wife was sick without getting medicines. Rest all was good. Also dinner options can be made available in the in house restaurant.

We thank you for your feedback. We are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience, but we are not allowed to have medicines in our property. We have vendiing machines where you could have found meals for lunch and dinner

All good

At the beginning nothing was good ince you all even forgot to put anything in the room. Towels, tissue ect. that was not at all fair for, I should have gotten what I paid for. After I complained, all was well.

We enjoyed it after the first blunder, we were mostly happy for the nearness to the beach and also the good transportation connections to town and everywhere.

Unhappy with my stay

Customer review rating 3.9/5

James Couples - 08/10/2018 AccorHotels certified review

A sub-standard hotel charging decent hotel prime. A basic room similar to a hostel, no phone, no coffee making facility, not even a chair to sit on, no hair dryer. Bad location far from city center nothing around hotel even a decent place to eat. Almost 24 hour tram and side walk construction that we could not sleep. Careless and irresponsible reception reluctant to answer guest question. So-called budget but charging a rate of a decent hotel. Buffet breakfast with not many choices turns into a continental breakfast. With an angry woman in charge. One morning they run out of a particular bread saying finished at 09:00. For this hotel we were charged euro 80. It is ridiculous. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone. I spent euro 50 for bus to go back and for to city center. Tram will continue to make guests lose their sleep. It looks more like a hostel rather than a hotel.

Very nice stay near the beach

Carla Solo - 20/09/2018 AccorHotels certified review

It was just ok. I had itching the first day so I did asked for clean my room, after that I did not have any problem. Room was too simple and people from reception had a too neutral way of services. Nothing great, nothing that bad

comfortable and very close to beach

Jennie Couples - 18/09/2018 AccorHotels certified review

Very comfortable, but we couldn't park our van in the designated car park, due to the height limit, so parking was very difficult.

Ken Couples - 17/09/2018 AccorHotels certified review

Front desk lady gave us a key and not much more. Room looked like a jail cell with minimal furnishings. Several customers were smoking and at least one smoking marijuana in their rooms. Hotel needs updating soon. On the positive....great location close to the promenade and great breakfast.
