As the name suggests, this bright Belle Epoch property is handy to the vibrant Place Massena, a short walk from the Old Town. Located in central Nice, close to the beach and a block from all the activity of the city's busiest square, the Massena Hotel is within easy walking range of shopping, dining and swimming. Renovated in a warm, vivid style, the room's parquet floors and pretty balconies convey a nostalgic air juxtaposed by flatscreen TVs, modern bathrooms and air-conditioning. Free wifi is available in the lobby lounge and guests staying in the deluxe rooms can look forward to robes, slippers and original wrought-iron terraces. The myriad enchantments of the Old Town are a five-minute walk from here, as are the public and private beaches that line the water's edge.
