This cozy spot is very convenient for arrival by train, about a 15 minute walk. The hotel is in the heart of Nice only steps from the Promenade on the Riviera. Reception from Olga was very pleasant. It has a sunny and bright breakfast area with a pretty patio out back. Our room was small but very comfortable and although...

We have chosen the hotel because of location and my friend advice. The hotel is nice - clean, with very helpful and polite staff, and almost perfectly located – 20 minute by bus from airport, 15 minute walk to railway station, 5 minute walk to English Promenade and beaches, 5 -10 mines walk to good restaurants, about 15 minutes to...

Just back (literally a few hours) from a 4 night stay at Hotel de la Fontaine. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the location of the hotel is great, right off the promenade and only a 10 minute walk to any of the key tourist attractions. Rooms are small but more than sufficient for a comfortable, modern base in Nice. Our...

In walking distance to everything. Friendly, unassuming staff. Very clean would definitely stay again. Great value hotel, minutes from the beach and amongst more expensive hotels. It was also only about 10-15 minute walk (past a grocery store a block away), to the train station, if you want to make a half-day excursion to Monte Carlo.

Chose this Hotel for the location. Very near the sea front and in walking distance of the station, sea front, old town, market and plenty of places of restaurants nearby. The Hotel was really good, comfortable rooms and a good size. Enjoyed the breakfast sitting in the courtyard. We had a room overlooking the road and although some people say...

The position, just 1 block back from the sea, was excellent. Also the street it is on leads to a pedestrian only area and then to the centre of Nice and the Old Town. You will be spoilt for choice for places to eat nearby. It is really easy to reach from the airport using the 98 bus - this...

Dear Guests, Thanks for your recent stay. We're happy to know that you enjoyed our hotel and services. There was the notice in the reception regarding the bus disruption the whole day of the strike. We'd also informed all our guests on the arrival that day. We do look forward to welcoming again in the future. Kind regards

Can't deny the location for the price of this hotel, one street back from the water which was awesome. Can't really comment on distance to anywhere else as we spent all our time on day beds by the ocean sipping cocktails :). The hotel isn't anything special, beds not the comfiest, bathroom small (but large shower), rooms clean, staff friendly...

I spent two nights in Hotel de la Fontaine recently while visiting Nice. While the rooms were simple by means of decor they were spotlessly clean. The staff were so accommodating and friendly while making every effort to communicate with their guests in their native language. The lobby area is small but so bright and welcoming. There is definite value...
