Overall a very nice stay. This is a decent building and lovely breakfast room, bar and nice bedrooms and bathrooms - bathroom freshly restored. Traditional long windows and curtains and outlook to street is pleasant. The breakfast is excellent, and probably one of the better offerings we have ever seen in a French hotel. The breakfast staff are attentive. The...

A second visit, as the first was so lovely. Availed ourselves of happy hour. And the terrace. Staff still super-friendly. Breakfast still awesome. Same minor quibbles, rooms on the small side and little tired. Explored more of Nice. Suggest a walk to the Matisse Museum and the lovely grounds of the church next door. Hire a veto bleu too. Also,...

Stayed here for 7 nights with a tour group. The rooms are small but hey--it's an old building. The bathroom was roomy and remodeled from what it would have been originally. There was a closet with shelves and a room safe. Also a refrigerator under the desk in the room. Our room overlooked the courtyard and was very quiet with...

Arrived at the Ellington to be welcomed by two really lovely receptionists. Given key to a pleasant but small twin roon with a little balcony however, when opening balcony door was greeted by a truly massive building site adjoining the hotel to the left of our room. The noise was unpleasant as was the view however, on going back to...

Nice hotel, walking distance from the sea front. Really lovely staff. They even gave us drinks on the house when we checked out because it was my birthday. We will definitely stay here again next time.

We went to Nice for a long weekend and we were looking for a classy, quaint hotel, as opposed to a large chain hotel. The photos we saw gave the hotel a more upscale appearance, but hotel turned out to be quite basic. The rooms are around 18 sq metres and have a small private bathroom. The AC didn't work...

The bar area in the hotel was quite small and was not busy, although we did visit in the quiet period. The rooms are not "wow" but are perfectly clean and a reasonable size. The views of the city from the window was good. The room got very hot with the window closed, despite it being only just warm outside...

Our stay was perfect! We were given a free upgrade and our room was very well-furnished, modern, clean, quiet and comfortable. By ordering our breakfast in advance we saved a few euros. The breakfast was quite expensive but offered plenty of choice: cereal, ham and cheese with cucumber and tomato, toast, pancakes with maple syrup,fresh fruit, yogurts, a variety of...

I would say this hotel is good for couples, families or anyone wanting a very very quiet experience in Nice. The bar closes very early and actually feels quite desolate/ unwelcoming so not sure you'd really want to stay there for a beer/ vin blanc anyway. The hotel's facade/ frontage is quite grand and we had a really nice view...
