We have just unpacked from a four day trip to Nice. We visited 2 years ago and loved it so much we had to return. We stayed at the Excelsior Hotel again and was not disappointed. The staff are charming and so helpful from the moment you check in. The ladies who prepare the wonderful breakfasts and cleaning staff alike made our stay memorable so thank you once again.

The breakfasts really keep you going during the day. The rooms, although not overly large are clean and attended daily and the bathrooms well stocked with towels and toiletries.

The location is perfect for a stroll to the sea front or a couple of minutes from the station which enables to you leave Nice and go on an adventures. The Trains run on time and are cheap and air conditioned.

We caught the No.99 bus from airport to station and it cost just 6 Euro each.

we hope to return at some point so thank you.

We booked this hotel based on their website photos and location. The location is brilliant, next to the main strip and only a 5 minute walk to the train station. As travellers on a long European holiday we both have good size bags and require a little bit of space to open our bags, our room made it impossible to open our bags unless we put our bags on the bed to open which isn't always convenient plus our bags had been through several countries and train stations so hygienically I wasn't impressed. The toilet is the size of basically the toilet only, don't drop anything as there is no space to pick it up! Our bathroom whilst very small the shower was great but as soon as you step out of the shower the entire bathroom floor is filled with water, all the bathmats provided don't soak it all up. Every morning and night we flooded the bathroom, the shower screen was closed but not an effective design. Our air-conditioner consistently dripped water in the middle of the hallway next to the bathroom so we had to slide our soaking wet towels from the shower to under the aircon so we could sleep without the dripping noise and finally there is no fridge!! The fridge box has no cooling so after walking around all day you can't keep a bottle of water cold. Reception responded that it is a mini bar but they said it means minimum bar no cooling....we didn't know what that meant but everynight we needed to buy a cold water from a shop, this really wasn't good enough.
We aren't complainers but I wish there was an honest review we had read before booking here. The positive is definitely the location, the staff on reception are very nice and the hotel has some funky design assetics but overall very disappointing!

The location of this hotel is central to where you want to be. Many different restaurants nearby. Staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with all of our questions and requests. The room was quaint, unique and memorable with a nice view. Definitely colorful which added much character. Although we didn’t try the breakfast in the morning, we did peek at it and it looked lovely. For the value, I would absolutely recommend Excelsior.

This hotel was excellent from the decor to the staff who made the stay very easy.The hotel is close to the railway station so getting to Monaco or Antibes was very easy . This hotel was just as expected - stylish, fun and boutique.

The lovely Côte d’Azur this time surprised us with the good hotel and location. We stayed a week and enjoyed every day of our stay in this beautiful city and lovely hotel with its great staff.
The check in process was the easiest I have ever seen. Hotel itself is compact, but has all that you might need. Outdoor bar and yard with nice atmosphere to have a cup of coffee there or breakfast on a fresh air. Rooms are clean and wide, with balcony, so you can get your portion of real oxygen especially in the mornings.
Very quiet, so no noise from outside, car, etc will hit your ears.
Breakfast is really nice and you can get all that you need!!!
Rooms is wide and bathroom is quite big and have all necessary amenities there.
Special thanks to the staff!!! Very polite and friendly!

12-15 minutes straight walk and you get to the beach. Also downtown area and old city where you get amazing food.
Close to Masséna area, about 10 min by walk. Have a grocery shops around (4-5 min walk).
2-3 min from train station.
I highly recommend you to choose this hotel. Next time in Nice I will stay here again.

Another special highlight: I left a bag in the room after checkout and hotel sent it to me the next day to my address in Baku.

With love from Baku!!!
