Easy 5 minutes from the train station [a plus for some, a negative for others]. Staff were always friendly. Skip breakfast, not worthwhile! Room was clean and loved the...

Dear Guest, Thank you for this comment so enthusiastic, what a pleasure to read it ! We will celebrate one year opening soon for this first boutique hotel in Nice, very colourful & funky as you mentioned, like a cocoon close to the train station. Looking forward to welcoming you for your next trip to the French Riviera, Best regards

Lovely clean quirky rooms with housemaid daily. Rooms are on the small side but offer tea and coffee and the power shower was great. Public areas always smelt clean and fresh. Breakfast could be crowded and there is no bar but a great central location for discovering Nice.

We booked this hotel four our small Easter holiday and the first impression was very good. It has good character with cozy interior, but we were very disappointed when we found out that the internet was only working close to the reception. Although the staff kept promising the internet problem will be fixed, it took them about 3 days to...
