Great value for this centrally located hotel”

Great location, helpful staff, free wi-fi

It's a small 2-star hotel but we liked it better than the 4-star hotel in Venice! We had a room next to the lift which meant that any late-nighters may be a bit noisy. Also on the first floor next to the street means there will be noise. But the room is clean, staff are friendly and helpful, and it's close to transport and major sites.

Big room in great location”

location and comfortable clean room with strong wifi!

The hotel is easy to find, it's right behind the Lafayette Gallery. It's within 5mins walk to the Anglais promenade and the beach, and few mins walking distance to Place Massena, Cours Saleya, Colline du Chateau and food and shopping and bus stops to go anywhere else! It's right in Vieille Ville and near enough to the beach so what more can we ask. The room is spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly (first thing the guy at the reception told us was not to go near the train station area when dark, and we appreciated that kind of candid local advice the most). Strong wifi in the hotel including in our room. They provide towels to the beach, just pay a small sum of deposit which you can get back when you return the towels.

Small and expensive”

Typically the type of old downtown hotel that has been trying to keep up with the standard of hospitality business. The location is very good, but the room is small and not very furnished. The bathroom is clean but scare. And the price is fairly high. Good for a night, not for a week unlike you enjoy being all crammed together.

Summary”

The room is a bit small for a family of four adults. The breakfast is delicious but a bit congested. The staff are friendly and helpful. We wish to express our gratitude towards Bruno and Pierre, especially Bruno who is helping us to arrange sending a parcel to Singapore. This parcel had reached Nice from Switzerland later than we expected. Hence, we left without having the parcel. We had communicate with Bruno a few times and wish to apologize for causing so much trouble to him.

Looks great on the surface but I got the room right next to the lift on the second floor, outside the window was the big neon hotel sign. At least it did not flash all night. Close to the beach but overpriced for the facility.

LOCATION it is all about that. Staff ...particularly one guy named Bruno... was awesome! He led me on a 20 minute walk after his shift to help me find a grocery store that was open. The bad part....I was in room 102, with paper thin walls. I could hear the lady in room 103 on the phone easily. And the breakfast crowd across from my room. Try to avoid the first floor.

Good location, Good value for money, Comfortable

I have stayed for 2 nights. The location is excellent and convenient. It is easy to find after getting off the airport bus 98. As it is just next to Lafayette! It is just a walking distance no matter going to the beach side, train station and Old town. However, hotel seems a bit old. And it is quite noisy. You can hear the water running thru the pipe easily. Also once I checked in, my room is full of smoking smell. Even I changed to another room, more or less the same. I understand it is out of control that people smoking in the room. But I highly recommend hotel can use room spray to solve this problem. Overall, staff is nice especially Pierrie. He is very informative and willing to help. It is good value for money for a short stay.

The Hotel was perfect in order to see the rest of Nice. We stayed there for three nights and loved every minute of it. During the day time, we visited the other places via a tour group. At night, we dined and wandered around the Riviera area…. Pierre was very helpful. all the staff members were actually helpful….

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Helvetique and it was the second time we have stayed there. We chose it for location and price. We did not eat any breakfast or meals there so cannot comment on the food. Staff were very helpful, spoke several languages and booked a taxi for us to go to the airport. We could walk to the old city and everything we wanted from there. It was only a short walk to the beach.

Good Location and in the Heart of the City ”

Great Location. Great service. Great value.

Overall, it was comfortable and enough for what we needed. The restroom could have been a little roomier, but it was acceptable. People at the service desk were friendly and helpful. This is no 5 star hotel, but for what is needed- a clean, comfortable place to stay, it suffices. We did a lot of biking along the promenade and ate at restaurants, Nice is quite a lovely place, and you will not be in your room that much.
