This hotel is a part of the Valet hotel management school, which is across the way from the hotel. The students run all aspects of the hotel, the housekeeping, front desk, and restaurant. The food in the restaurant, even for a vegetarian (get the appetizer buffet option at dinner), was very good for breakfast and dinner. The staff was very...

Arriving at midnight to find the hotel was kind of difficult, especially to find the main entrance to the hotel. Disappointed to see a small lobby, but at least checking-in was fast, and the front desk guy accompanied us to our room on the 4th floor. Helpful and accomodating at least. Large room with a marbled bathroom, and push-botton controlled...

I'm definitely biased towards modern, stylish hotels over the more rustic ones and the Hotel Vatel didn't disappoint at all. Great lobby area and bar for hanging out. Nice, large room with a large bathroom, full shower and working climate control. My balcony overlooks downtown and is enclosed for privacy if I want. The wifi is very fast and strong...

The exterior is like arriving in immediately post war East Germany. There is no ambience as you enter the hotel and it doesn't get better. There is a problem with everything ..accessing wifi which keeps quitting, television controls that don't work, phone system that is complex. The brasserie is so bright you need sunglasses, zero ambience. The decor is plastic...

This hotel and restaurant are on a business school campus. Students serve you. If you have patience, you will eat an excellent meal. The rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable. Staff was friendly and did their best to ensure you were satisfied.

After staying in a rather unpleasant hotel in Nice, my wife and I were looking for something a little more upscale. We were pleasantly surprised when we found this little gem. The room was very well appointed for the price. The bed was very comfortable, and the staff were very friendly.

The hotel itself is newly rennovated. The rooms are modern and clean. The top floor restaurant is excellent. The concept of this hotel being a school for students studying hotel management is pleasant. However, it is far away from the city center. Right next to the hotel are some welfare buildings and student homes. Take a quick guess...- Part, alcohol,...

A great small hotel, just 44 rooms, and an "école hotelliére" at the same time. The rooms are big and in grat condition, ( a big overhaul 2 years ago, I was told), and the staff--students willing to work and satisfy the customers.
