    Nice location

    Lack of parking was real nuisance and parking place is. 5-10 min walk so beware. Rooms were very tired and shabby. I would warn visitors to not sleep with windows open unless youwant to be consumed by Mosquitos.

    Superb

    Good location near the central railroad station, place Massena (buses) and promenade. About 5-7 min on foot. Frendly staff and old French room.

    Possibly the bath facilities needs to be pretty newer.

    Superb

    The owners were lovely and have the cutest little dog in reception called 'Busby'. The hotel is around a 7 minute to the sea and a short walking distance to the old town and plenty of other restaurants. We will stay there again.

    The only complaint would be that other guests made far too much noise in the morning, due to the cheap hotel rates and its proximity to the sea, it attracts some younger people who take their after parties into the hotel.

    Fabulous

    The staff were always polite, helpful and accommodating. Spacious rooms within easy walking distance of the beach and nightlife.

    Lacked certain things like an iron and ironing board.

    The gentleman on duty at the reception when I checked in was very helpful and welcoming.

    Other than the gentleman on duty at the reception when I arrived the rest of the staff were fairly grumpy and in particular one manger starting arguing with me when I refused to settle my bill the night before departure even though I was only leaving after 10 am the following day. Wifi was available in the room but cost €5. To have to pay for internet in a hotel in Europe in this day and age is ridiculous. I looked around and found a far nicer hotel with friendlier staff and cheaper rooms about 2 blocks away.

    Fabulous

    In the city center, close to the promenade, Mediterranean, outdoor market. Was clean and good value for the cost. Front desk personnel, especially M. Frank, was great!

    Exceptional

    I loved that the staff was so friendly and helpful. When asking for directions, they would either go outside to point me in the right direction or give me detailed directions and a map. Very helpful.

    It was ideal. Very cute and comfortable. I only booked this because of the price for the first night I was in Nice. The next two I was staying at another hotel with 2 friends. This hotel was a 3 star and the other hotel I was at was a 4 star. I was much more impressed with this hotel then the 4 star. When I go back to Nice, I will definately be staying here.

    Good

    The hotel is very well localized and people talk many languages at the hotel.

    The room was not very clean. There were cookies in the floor when I have arrived.

    Great location and kind staff

    The walls are rather thin, so it can be a bit noisy sometimes. Bring your earplugs.

    Good

    Good location, short walk to the beach. Close to restaurants and shopping. Quiet room on the backside as required. The ac was good. Professional staff in the reception. I liked the old-fashioned style of the hotel .

    The beds were not comfortable, very old. The breakfast was very simple , but served in a rather elegant room with cristal chandeliers.

    Superb

    Great location near the old city and 2-3 blocks from the beach, very kind and helpful staff, front desk was staffed for 24hr.

    Hotel and rooms need updating.

    Exceptional

    Everything. I had stayed there before and like it. Then I was back in Nice with a previous reservation at another hotel, which was awful, so I quick booked a room at Busby for the rest of my second stay.

    Superb

    Totally oldschool, which means the service was great. Furniture is quite old and it will depend weather you care about it or not. Staff was helpful and very polite. It's halfway between the station (bad neighbourhood) and the shopping street (much better one). The breakfast is served on the table, so being in a hurry will affect this nice experience.
