Nice, clean hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. I do recommend. Also location next to train station suited us well. Room was small but nice and clean. Bed good. Outside is quite noisy and hotel offers ear plugs for sensitive people. We had no problem with noise. Free Wifi was working well.

This was a very enjoyable, friendly hotel very near to the train station. The staff was very professional and Nice is an undisclosed gem on the travel scene. You won't be disappointed with this hotel if you are looking for convenience and reasonable rates.

Not what I expected to be honest. Close to the station, which is what I needed, this establishment is more of a large Bed and Breakfast operation rather than a hotel. No bar or restaurant and the price of €14.00 for a rather poor breakfast I was somewhat disappointed with my stay! Having said that the staff were very friendly...

We booked this hotel as part of flight + hotel package, so didn't expect much. However, they turned out to be better than our expectations. Rooms are very small, with no mini-fridge, but the staff was friendly, and breakfast was quite good. The best feature is that we could stop by at other HappyCulture hotels to avail ourselves of their...

Excellent price-service level, very friendly and helpfull staff, clean, perfect for a city trip. Close to the maintrainstation; the rooms on the lower floors could be a bit noisy to a restaurant and the street closeby. But nothing to be changed. I would re-book anytime again

The room was nice and clean. Although the size was small, the location was convenient to get to the train station. It was only 2 blocks away from Gare de Nice-Ville. Also, the staffs were friendly and helpful. I would go back again when I visit nice.

Would recommend fully! The Happy Hotel brand is such a great idea. Breakfast was delicious and staff were so friendly. Thanks for everything Only thing was the heating that made the rooms so hot - not needed in October!

Villa Bougainville was excellent for the price. The rooms are not overly big, but they are perfectly adequate if you are out all day, as we were ....pity about the air-conditioning (wasn't actually working, so we sweated every night.....our fault for not complaining until we left- they said they could have turned the heating down, if they had known.

I stayed for two nights at the end of October. The outside temperature was 20+ but the hotel had switched off the air con and switched on the central heating on 01 October. I did not have the radiator on but my room was still too hot for my liking. I was offered an alternative room, which was bigger but...
