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!!!!!!!!!!

... took ages to be served but the tapas dish was really nice, Daryl couldn't finish his gnocchi and Liam couldn't finish his Caesar salad. I had a marinated raw beef dish with chips and salad. With our food and drinks we paid €60 which was a pretty good price. I asked about tipping and the waiter was lovely and said no, it was covered in the price. It certainly impressed Daryl - he thinks I'm really fluent in French but most of the time I'm guessing! Back to the Novotel Acropolis to ...
Today, Sami and I were relieved to wake up and find blue skies and sunshine! We thought we would make the most of the weather by taking a stroll down to the beach. But first, we stopped to get a bite to eat. We found a charming corridor that normally hosts a daily farmers market, with the exception of one day of the week when it is an antiques and flea market. It was wonderful to see what treasures this market had to offer; old chandeliers, sets of ...
.... a Morning in Monaco.
It was a lovely journey travelling from Nice to Monaco along the Cote D'Azur as we passed through lovely little towns aswell as beautiful stretches of countryside and sea. It was made all the better by the fact that the journey, despite lasting 45 minutes, only cost 1 euro each. You definitely couldn't get value like that in England.
When we arrived in Monaco we had a wander around the harbour looking at some of ...
... 7 or so and people eat verrrry late, and go out even later. there are no like 24-hour 7-11s here like there are at home. get your **** taken care of during the day or you are SOL.
-people have been relatively nice, we havent really encountered anyone who has been the stereotypical "rude french" person, and in fact, people have been quite helpful.
-elementary school kids get wednesday off randomly every week. just because it is wednesday... 4 days of school ...
... lifts and a few flights of stairs and we were soon back on Rue de Princess Carolina, we found a nice restaurant, Nay had the seafood Lasagne and I had the steak Tartare, seared this time for a change with a litre of house red thrown in, fish pate to start with we had a great night, but then had to struggle back up the steps and lifts, but it was worth it being back in our room with the view over the harbour and then the firework display that we watched from our ...
