      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Boreal Nice

      Our experience


      Four of us, two couples, stayed at the Boreal for a few days in June 2004. The hotel is comprised of two adjoining buildings -- one with an elevator. Two of our party required an elevator, and their room was very tiny -- room for very little more than the twin beds. The room of the other two was much larger, with french doors opening onto an atrium and a large bath. From our experience, if you can forgo the elevator, choose the half without one for a much better room. The location and cleanliness of the hotel was great. We had our breakfast each day in the big shopping center on Jean Medecin, one block away. And we are going back next month!!

      Great location, best price


      We found the staff very polite and helpful, including Portuguese girl who helped us a lot, since we are Brazilians. The location of the hotel is great, close to the old city, promenade and shopping.

      The room is has more space than others we have visit around Europe, and clean as well.

      Hotel Boreal


      Our two rooms were not spacious but had nice bathrooms and were very clean. We found the staff to be polite and helpful as well. The location of the hotel is ideal, close to the old city, beach and shopping.

      Great value, nice stay


      I am very surprised to read some of these reviews, as I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The location is incredible, just steps from the promenade, beach and marketplace. There are resturants and shops surrounding the hotel as well. The hotel was neat and clean and our room was larger than any I have ever encountered in Western Europe.

      There did appear to be a bit of a moisture issue, as our room felt very humind and our quilts nearly damp, but that was not much of a problem as we just removed them.

      The staff were friendly and helpful, including opening the breakfast room a half of an hour earlier on the day we departed so we could have breakfast before our early flight, and sending us off with baguettes and croissants for snacks on the plane!

      I would certainly stay here again.

      Visited August 2002 paid 80US with for a double.

      Good Value


      We enjoyed our stay here during August 2002. The rate was a bargain for the location, just a quick stroll to the promenade and beach and nestled near several resturants and shops. The area felt very safe as well. Our room was the largest I have encountered in Western Europe.

      There did seem to be a moisture problem however, as the room air felt damp, affecting even the bed quilts (which we slept without). But overall, the experience was nice. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast delicious (and when we inquired about checking out 20 minutes before breakfast opened on our last day to head to the airport, the manager offered that we could come in early and eat or grab some food to go!), and most importantly we were just minutes from the beach! For the 78US that we paid, this was an incredible value. Recommended.

      A okay stay


      OK hotel. Good if you're on a budget. Located in downtown. Convenient for shopping. Very small and awkward shape room with thin wall. No shower curtain so bathroom was flooding after shower. Breakfast was alright.

      Very hot- bring your own air conditioner


      Should be rated 2 star. Very, very hot room-the air conditioner was totally useless. The lobby itself must have been 90 degrees. Everything else about average.

      Contrary to the review above


      Methinks the reviewer above doth protest too much. I visited Nice last weekend and was slightly apprehensive, having read the above review. I should not have worried. The Comfort Boreal was exceptional value for money.My single room, comprising twin beds, was spacious and spotless.

      The location, facing a quiet pedestrian precinct, on a street just off the Rue Jean Medecin (the main drag), could not be more central. 5 minutes walk to both the main railway and train stations, with the beach and the Old Town no more than 10 minutes easy stroll. In addition, unlike many budget hotels, the a/c was top-notch. Breakfast was good and the satellite TV offered the latest films. All in all 4 star facilities at 3 star prices.

      Worst Hotel


      We have travelled all over the world this is the worst hotel we have ever encountered. The elevator only served half the building. The room with repainted furniture was so small it was hard to have room to walk around the bed. The closets and drawers were so moldy we never put anything in them. The staff was non existant--we had to carry our own bags to the third floor and when we told the desk we were leaving the next day no one even asked why. Three stars? is three stars more than anyone could possibly rate them!--there are better deals or stay at a hostel.

So, off I went, walking past the Nice port (where ferries were leaving for Corsica) to the Quai des États-Unis, at the port end of the famous beach area that continues along the Quai des États-Unis beyond where it meets the famous Promendade des Anglais. While the hill is imposing, and can be seen from anywhere in Nice, the steps that lead up are not ...
