Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel les Cigales Nice
Les Cigales- A lovely hotel
I have just spent the weekend in this lovely hotel and was very impressed.
The hotel is in a very nice safe area, on a quiet road, but within a couple of minutes walk to restaurants, bars and little boutiques.
It is very convenient, about 10 minutes walk from the railway station and 5 minutes to the Promenade des Anglaises and the Hotel Negresco.
The Hotel has a very pretty exterior and was spotlessly clean with elegant contemporary decoration. I had booked a single room but was pleased to find I had a double bed. A plus was the choice of being able to open the good sized window or use the air conditioning (which worked well).
The bedroom was as nicely decorated as the entrance area with a new looking, smart bathroom (with a good shower) and plenty of fresh towels.
The lady who greeted me at the desk was very helpful showing me a map of Nice, pointing out areas of interest and suggesting bus routes to take to certain sites; happily, she allowed me to move into my room despite my arriving several hours before check-in time.
Breakfast was good, with fresh croissants, pain au chocolat, cheese, boiled eggs etc.
This is a really nice hotel and I will certainly stay here again when in Nice.
Friendly and comfortable
My 2 girl friends and I stayed at Les Cigales for 3 nights last week and we really enjoyed our visit. The hotel is well situated between the sea and the railway station and is spotlessly clean. All the staff were most helpful and friendly. The only slight disapointment was breakfast which was served in a dull basement room and was over priced at €10. Better to go out and have lovely fresh warm croisants at the cafe round the corner. I would stay at Les Cigales again and I can recommend it to other trip advisor members
We stayed at the Hotel Les Cigales at the beginning of October 2004 for four nights. The hotel was very clean and had a "new" feeling about it (it's been recently renovated). The staff were very helpful and friendly, even remembering who you were and your room number! We were particularly impressed on our last day as we had to check out at 6am for our flight and the staff offered us breakfast (even though the breakfast room isn't open that early) and also offered us a wake up call, we expected the usual telephone call but no, we received a personalised knock at the door, which was a nice surprise!! Breakfast was good and well worth the extra. Excellent location. The only down side was the shower (although the bathrooms were really pretty) which was a bit on the small side and tended to leak a little but on the whole, this didn't really matter when the rest of the hotel was so good. Also, we were on the second floor and the bedroom ceiling was a little low so you had to stoop in one or two places but we soon got used to this. All in all, highly recommended, we're already planning our trip to lovely Les Cigales next year.
Spotlessly clean and excellent location in centre of Nice. Super helpful staff and all good English speakers.
Les Cigales - a little gem!
Heartily endorse all the positive points in previous reviews. Staff very nice and helpful - they managed to find us an umbrella when needed and on arrival took time to give us a map and point out sites of interest (including Galeries Lafayette!). Excellent quiet position. Decor good and hotel clean. Room was smallish but fine.
Had a lovely Vietnamese meal a few doors up from the hotel. All of Nice was within easy walking distance - shops, station, the front etc.
Very Nice- But Small
Just returned to the US two days ago, The Hotel Les Cigales was very nice- the staff are quite helpful and the location is excellent. The one thing is that the room I had was quite small and cramped, however the interior decoration was nice.
Recently returned from The Cigalas where we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is fantastic, only a 8 minute walk to the train station taking you to Monte Carlo/Monaco, 5 minute walk to the restaurants and beach and only a 10 minute walk to the local daily market. Staff were excellant and helpful. Room was on the ground floor and of good size. Nice was lovely but the experience was undoubtedly enhanced by the lovely Hotel Cigalas.
This hotel is a true hidden gem - after having to scramble at the last minute to find a hotel in Nice, another hotel recommended Les Cigales - it is a small hotel with brand new facilities (recently re-done). The air conditioning is magnificent (especially in the summer!) and the staff is great. Hotel is only two blocks from the beach, just off the pedestrian area and lots of restaurants. it is a welcome change from the crazy large hotels and the service is excellent. Great decor and lovely bathrooms too!

... we couldn't even find a place to buy water and it was up hill and down dale the whole way. Nonetheless, Monaco (and its Monte Carlo district) was amazing - manicured, genteel and sophisticated from the array of shops, the cars, the casino, the walk ways to the houses. We looked at a few real estate windows - not much change from 3,000,000 euros for an apartment...

We continued on to the world famous tunnel, I missed it the first time because even though I was sure it was the right turning the sign said Car Park so I carried on, again we continued on the wrong road until we could turn around, there wasn't as much sighing this time because it had been my fault. We found the track again and entered the tunnel, there actually wasn't any traffic in front of ...

It was now 5:30pm and it was dark, as sunset is about 4:45pm in this part of the world. We carried all our gear back to the car, drove for 5 minutes down the hill and pulled over. I contacted AirBnB via email and told them what had happened, then looked for something else. We found ...
On the drive to Nice, we got to see the beautiful "country" of Monaco. Which is basically just really large yachts and some fancy looking cars. Apparently when you want to live in Monaco you need to apply and the application costs $1,000,000 euros! I couldn't believe this! Who would want to even live there then.
