Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here as part of a Topdeck tour and it was probably one of the best located hotels we stayed in the whole trip. Close to the beachfront, markets and shops. The rooms are quite old but they were fine. The hotel staff were friendly. I was grossly overcharged to have an item of clothing I’d left behind sent to another address in France but apart from that I can’t fault the hotel. Would recommend.

I mostly enjoyed my stay here. It was clean. The staff was helpful, especially when I found myself bombarded by electronic cigarette use when in a room with a connecting door. They moved me to another room and took steps to protect me from it. I have asthma, and it affects my breathing and makes my ears pop. Hotels have a hard time enforcing it, but they really need to find ways because the problem has become increasingly worse in the last few years. The room had many windows and was very comfortable. The shower, like most showers in Europe had some problems. The showerhead kept falling and they didn't fix it properly, but you definitely have more space in their showers than most European showers since this is also a bath.

Fine hotel with a fine location. Unfortunately, we booked our hotel late and the availability of hotels was not huge. They were all very expensive but then this popped up. Compared to the other pricy hotels it is a fine alternative. The rooms seem old and subject to a face lift. No fridge in the room. Their shower is poor. So, if you value high quality showers pick another hotel. The shower curtain continuously sticks to your body during the shower. After 2 days the show head couldn’t stay fixed. So, the first 2 mornings we got a decent shower but on the third day it started to first shower in your head (as intended) but then after 1 minute it showered on your chest. So, you had to hold it with your hand. It even changed position automatically to shower on the shower curtain and not you. Very annoying. I asked 4 mornings if they could fix it. Nothing happened. For this reason I will pick another hotel next time.

This hotel is the most horrible place I’ve stayed in. There was ants in our room, and the hotel blamed it on us saying they were attracted by food and trash. However, there was ants there before we unpacked our luggage. In addition, the food was in closed containers, and there was no food in the trash, only paper etc. We didn’t get to switch rooms, and the “manager” couldn’t be called because it was “too late” at 16 o’clock, and then it was “too early” at 09 o’clock. We didnt get any reimbursement, they only offered free breakfast, which does not justify the conditions of the room.

To Monsieur Balghagi, Cyril, Jon Pierre, and the entire staff at the Hotel Busby: It is not easy to make a group of 33 adults comfortable and happy, but that is exactly what you did! We stayed at the Hotel Busby for 4 nights, and all were pleased. The hotel is well appointed, and the location is perfect for all Nice has to offer. The rooms were comfortable, breakfast was very nice, and the outdoor patio was a perfect location for our group to gather at night after busy days of touring and sightseeing. Merci Beaucoup from our group!

The Hotel Busby is a lovely 19th century building in a perfect location just a short walk to Promenade des Anglais, where there are regular buses nos 8 and 12 into the centre of Nice or you can walk there in 10-15 minutes. The Tram2 stop from the airport is close at Alsace Lorraine . Cyril on reception was most welcoming and helpful throughout our 2 weeks stay—to celebrate my 78th birthday. The hotel is extremely clean and our maid was most attentive. The Hotel Busby provides one of the prime essentials for a good holiday—really comfortable beds! Highly recommended for anyone who has never been to Nice before as the location alone is perfect.

Where do we start. Value for money is key and this hotel in the middle of Nice delivered. From a spacious room with 3 comfortable beds and enough room to still move around. Rooms are a little dated but this adds to the character. Staff are friendly and very helpful. The rooms are cleaned daily to a high standard. There is a lounge to use with large TV, sofa and many seats. We are traverling to London in a weeks time and will get a room for 1 night at the same as it cost for 3 nights in the Busby with half the floor space. Also for future reference this hotel is very central to the beech, railway station bars and shopping and you will not beat it for location. See you next year Busby

DO NOT STAY HERE. Upon first inspection, the hotel was good, very old fashioned but that didn't bother us. The next morning when my friend and I got ready we made the shocking discovery that the room was jnfested with ants. My friends bag was completely infested, the bed was aswell. We think there must have been a nest in the corner of wardrobe. Upon further inspection the bed was also full of ants. All our clothes were completely contaminated with ants. Please, for your health DO NOT GO HERE!! This hotel is a health hazard and needs to be closed down. The hotel is refusing to give us our money back. They offered us free breakfast but that does not justify the ants in the room or the fact that we have to potentially throw our clothes away due to contamination. Please please DO NOT come here!!!!!!!!

Hotel is 5 min from the beach, tram station for the airport, 5 min to center city and 10 minutes to train station for Cannes and Monte Carlo.
Perfect location. Pleasant staff. Furniture is old, bathroom should be renewed, but for small amount of money everything was correct.

This is a very nice 3-star hotel. Beautiful building from the end of the 19th century. Good interiors with a common room, patio, smoking place, small bar and a gym. Some equipment like bathroom fixtures are outdated, they are working but are let’s say “vintage”. Soundproofing is not very good, but we had good night’s sleep thanks to a good bed and working air conditioning. Extra points from adequate cabinets, shelves, hangers and hook. Good location although far from old town Nice. The airport tram is close, but the nearest stops are unfortunately further away. We liked the friendly staff. Breakfast room is gorgeous and the breakfast is worth the price of 12 euros.
