Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Comte de Nice

If you are on the budget, this is a good place for you
Well, this place is good for those who are on the budget and still want to see French Riviera. We traveled at the end of August 2003 for our honeymoon. F.R. is a very nice place itself, so no bad hotel can spoil it. The hotel is pretty far from the beach, you will need a car to travel anyways I think. The staff is OK, but I will probably choose nicer more expensive hotel near the beach. You do not travel to F.R. often, so you want to treat yourself to nice trip, view, etc. Hotel is small, as many in Europe, so do not be mad when you see it if you expect extraordinary.
The smallest bathtub in town
I stayed at the the Comte de Nice beginning of march 2004. I had a mixed experience. I had booked a studio room with kitchenette. Although the reservation was confirmed, such room was not available for the first night, so they gave me a standard room. The room was very cold, the very small heater was off since several days. Took several hours to get a decent temperature (remember it was in march). The room and the bed was very small. The bathtub is so small that it is not really possible to have a bath, so I decided to took a shower instead, but the ceiling was so low that it was not possible to stay standing under the shower.... Next day I was moved to the booked studio. This time a very nice room, with fridge and microwave, good heating, good bed. The bathtub is still very small, but the ceiling is now ok, so shower is not a problem. The location of the hotel is very good if you need to take the train. Very quiet area. Frequent public transportation to the shopping areas (5 min travel) or to the sea (10 min.)
We stayed at the Comte de Nice for 3 days at the end of November 2003.
The hotel is located conveniently - the bus No. 23 from the airport stops at Place Charles de Gaulle, very close to the hotel. The rooms are small and sparsely decorated, but clean, and the bathroom newly renovated. The personnel is very friendly and speak German and English.
The hotel is located near the main station and there are many shops, the big shopping centre "Nice Etoile" as well as a daily market in the vicinity. We would not hesitate to stay at the "Comte de Nice" again as the room price was quite a bargain.
At first I was quite impressed with this hotel which I had booked through expedia.com. Convenient to the train station, the neighborhood was nonetheless relatively pleasant and provided good access to most of the sights in Nice, even if it is quite a trek to the beach. I was very angry with how the hotel treated my cancellation for a room on a subsequent visit. I was told when making the booking with them in person that only 24h notice was required, but when I cancelled just under one week in advance, they explained the cancellation policy was, in fact, seven days and debited my card for the full room rate immediately. Furthermore, staff were remarkably rude and unpleasant.
A Total Dump!
The Comte De Nice Hotel is a complete DUMP - avoid staying here at all costs. We arrived there in June during a heat wave after being told there was air conditioning - actually, there is AC, but only in the lobby! Their location is COMPLETELY different from what they promote online - it is a good 1/2 walk to the beach and main shopping area, far past the train station. It is not near any other hotels, and the neighborhood is less than desirable. The decor in the rooms was sparse (to put it mildly) - don't be fooled by the descriptions and the price. I would recommend other hotels, cheaper and closer to the beach, such as Les Cigalles (brand new, great AC, and good special rates- under 90 euro).
Even though we had cancelled 2 months ahead, this place , Hotel comte de nice and the reps. at Venere refuse to give refunds.
All beware booking through Venere
READ ALL THE FINE PRINT. BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!

... unexpected highlight of the entire trip. Sailing along in the opposite direction were two riders from the Sky pro team! Full team kit, Pinarello Dogma bikes, the works. They must have been part of Sky's Tour de France squad doing a final tune-up before the race starts on Saturday. It happened so fast that there was no way I could get a photo or even catch their names (Sky puts its riders' names up the side of their team jerseys). ...
... I don’t mess around!
Took the bus (82) up to Eze Village, a medieval town situated on top of a mountain. If you take this trip, sit on the right side of the bus for stunning views of Nice! Eze Village is very near the bus stop in Eze—just go uphill! However, what goes up must come down, and if you climb a few 100 stairs, you’re going to have to go down a few 100! I was not overly impressed with Eze Village. Yes, the town is about 1000 years ...
... found this amazing chocolate shop where we only bought a candy bar but they had the coolest chocolate creations and made a ton of delicious looking chocolates. By this point my skin was absolutely killing me. Up next on our agenda was the boat tour of Nice and Villefranche which would put me in full sun for another full hour. I covered my legs with maps and tried to cover my arms, and sucked it up for the next hour. I was pretty out of it but the tour was ...
... made our way through all of that level. There were some interesting tanks, but nothing too exciting. I was actually kinda bummed out, and hoping there'd be more. We went up a level to the main floor (labeled 0), and there were a lot of artifacts from early oceanography. It was intriguing, but I'm more of a live fish kind of person! We knew there were higher floors, but we saw a gift shop at one end of the floor we were on, so we headed that direction first. We ...
