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

... station, and had read some wonderful reviews about the scenery on the bus trip. So I walked to Place Garibaldi to catch the bus to Monaco, but you can read about my time there in a separate entry on this blog.
After my visit to Monaco, I returned to spend the rest of the afternoon and evening exploring Nice. I made my way straight from the bus to Castle Hill and took the elevators to save time (and ...
... restaurant right on the port where the fireworks were going to be going off later. Oh yeah I forgot to mention, Walter told us that there was an international fireworks competition that evening between Canada, Spain, France, and China. We also saw cool artwork depicting the Formula One Grand Prix race that takes place on that street (it's the race that was going on in Iron Man 2!). I ordered a pizza, jake ordered some octopus dish, and Michael Tom ordered veal. It ...
... to sand beaches. Getting hungry we found a super market and following in the baguette trend we brought some cheese and game and avocado and sat on the curb eating delicious baguettes after searching for ages to find a laundromat and not a dry cleaning we gave up and went back to the hotel. We asked the lady who ran the hotel if she knew of any places and she said she could do it for cheaper. We were delighted but later we found that the price she ...
... early. Our original tour was to stop here and spend all day in Monanco and Monte Carlo but our guide suggested that it would be better for us to carry on with him and visit Cannes, Antibes and St Paul du Provenence which we did. Again in Cannes you could smell the money!! Antibes we visited the Old Town which was pretty ordinary after previous old towns we have seen and visited ...
We arrived in Monaco this morning. We were supposed to be off the ship at 10am, but something about clearing immigration held us up a bit and also, we had to tender into this port and the sea was rough so it was all taking longer. I hate to tender in because it’s just such a more time consuming process. But all went well and our tour guide for the day was waiting for us patiently. His name was Bryce, but pronounced the French ...
