Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Comte de Nice
Good value and very clean
good value 2 * hotel very clean and friendly english speaking staff.also breakfast buffet very good value with wide choice of cold items.

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!!!!!!!!!!

Hello! I just got back from another amazing weekend! This time I was in the French Riviera- which was so much fun! We left at 6am Saturday morning and got to Monaco around 10:30. We got off the bus and went on a walking tour of the area, which was really cool! We went to to the Cathedral, where we saw where Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier are buried. It's a really beautiful cathedral. We also saw the private apartments of Prince Albert and his wife and ...
... across the street and went down to the beach! The storm was gone, but we were the only ones on the beach as far as you could see in either direction! So we finally got to put our feet in the Mediterranean Sea, and we have pictures to prove it! It was a little cold...but it is so beautiful....just the color we thought it would be! I'm so glad I've gotten to see it. We then went back into the town, but we didn't find anything new to excite us, so after a nice stroll, we went back ...
... and haven't hit anything yet, that hard at least. The southern coast of France is amazing and I already cant wait to come back. While everything here is breathtaking, nothing can stand in the way of NFL Sunday and my fantasy squad so of course we found a bar with ESPN America and wi-fi so I was up to date on all the games. The cards won, my fantasy team is winning, and I'm in Europe, surely can not ...
... was because his friends told him to work on a charter boat as a chef. Apparently there isn't any money in being a chef unless you own your own restaurant. The alternative is working 4-6 months non-stop in Monaco and then having enough money for the year. Shane had been travelling for the past 7 months so I was also able to get some good advice about where to go and how to travel. Our other roommate was Brazilian, so when the subject of Brazil came ...

After having dinner in a restaurant that didn't take our retirement fund to pay for, we made our way to the famous Monaco casino......WOW!!! Greeted by cars, and not just any cars. There are Porsche, Maserati, lamborghini, ferraris, Bentleys, Hummers (you could never look at a BMW or a Mercedes again and think nice car), Soren didn't know where ...
