The hotel is in a nice location close to everything you really need when staying in Nice. Our room had a nice balcony and was large. The front of the hotel is nice, the interior is nice when you get in. That's about where it stops. Once you get into the hallways things start to change and by the time you get into the room, well, things get a little old. This hotel could really use an update to its rooms and halls. Too bad and I wouldn't give this hotel more than a 3 star rating. This hotel is in a great location; minutes from the beach, vieux Nice and main shopping and eating areas. The public areas are large and tastefully decorated but the rooms leave something to be desired. We viewed several rooms before deciding to upgrade to a 5th floor sea view room with a balcony, expensive, but the view was great.We had our teenage daughter in the room with us and it was rather squashed.
