The room was small - had a hard time having two suitcases open and able to walk around the room. The bathroom was a fair size. All was very clean. Breakfast was average - it is adequate - could have been better. If travelling by train it is only a few blocks away. The beach is only a 10 minute... More

Best Western Hotel Riviera is a budget hotel. For 109.5 euros per night, my friend and myself got a twin en-suite room, free breakfast, free lunch pack. It is convenient because of its proximity to the main train station and the tramlines. But what makes it stand out from every other hotel, is the best customer/ reception service I've ever... More

Not a good hotel. One of the people in our group was robbed in the dining room because security conditions are bad. Tiny room

The hotel is a couple of minute's walk from Nice SNCF railway station, with a direct bus route (route 99) from the airport to the station. The old town is around three quarters of a mile from the hotel and is easily accessible by bus or tram. The hotel Reception staff are very friendly and all spoke good English. Cold... More

Party of 15 stayed for 2 nights celebrating a surprise 50th birthday. Hotel staff allowed us all to change and then leave our bags locked up whilst we explored before checking in. A very clean, tidy and comfortable hotel with excellent breakfast and offering everything on the doorstep for a mini break. Bus 99 from the airport costs 4 euros... More

Close to train station - so excellent location if you are traveling by train. About a 5 min walk. Met with a welcome drink - very nice touch. Daily free breakfast was great with a great variety. Daily bagged lunch provided at no extra charge (a cut up apple, chips, a sandwich and a bottle of water). Concierge was excellent... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this hotel. It is a 5 minute walk from the train station, which was perfect. When we arrived, we were happily greeted and given our check in drink (we chose beer).

This was my first visit to Nice, but I have traveled in Europe before. My wife and I booked a room at this hotel at the last minute, and we were both surprised at the low rate we were offered. Needless to say I was very skeptical about what we would encounter. But, after reading TripAdvisor and other reviews on-line... More

Had a pleasant stay at this hotel. Staff did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. Rooms weren’t huge but were very clean with a good bathroom and modern fittings.
