... sea) on a narrow rocky peak overlooking the Mediterranean sea. The ancient fortified village is still crowned with the ruins of its 12th-century fortified castle (torn down in 1706), sitting on a narrow rocky peak. After exploring the medieval village we hiked down the valley for about 45 minutes along the rocky terrain (wearing flip flops was probably not ideal) to the sea side town of Eze-sur-Mer. It was then a 20 ...
Well let's start with my arrival at the hostel yesterday afternoon. It was very easy as I thought it would be. Check in was fast and easy and I had an amazing view from my balcony. Private room with ensuite although I did have to climb all the way to the 3rd floor with my bags as there is no lifts. I have realised now I should have taken more photos of the inside but alas....it was a cool place. The common room had loads ...
... not have been able to call for help, so don't ever travel alone! Learn how to read maps and just enjoy every minute of your travels. The fact that everything is different from our home culture just makes these trips that much more memorable. Respect everyone's culture and take the time to just buy a batch of strawberries, stroll through a market and smell the pretty flowers.

For the photography junkies like myself, think Eze, Vence, St. Paul de Vence, etc and for the coastline beach and pretty francophone little villes, think Antibes, Cagnes sur mer, Villefrance sur mer, etc. Whatever you wanted they had it. They had it all AND they had crepes too. Upon landing, the first thing I did was rent a bike. Yeah while I tend to ...
... that we hoped on a bus for one Euro and headed to the beach Cap D'ail which was 30 minutes away from Nice and near Monaco. Driving through the French Riviera was beautiful and so was the beach we hung out at. We headed back and got a nice French dinner near the hostel, and then it was time to celebrate my friend Stef’s 21st birthday. Later we ended up going swimming at the beach again, but this time no one brought ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Brice Nice
It took awhile to figure out where to park to check in. The front street was partially chained off and we needed to move the posts to make room for our car. The receptionist was friendly and informative. He explained where to park in the locked garage (20€) and several places to eat.
The room was very small and outdated but the bed was fairly comfortable.The evening was cool so we opened the windows and slept with the shutters closed. There was a small amount of traffic noise.
The biggest drawback was having only one outlet with a three plug extension cord. Being photographers it was difficult to recharge our camera batteries, lap tops and phones before leaving the next day.
Not the greatest place I have stayed but slightly below average.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Brice Nice
Stayed at the Tulip Inn 21st - 28th May 2004. Its a very nice and hospitable hotel with a lovely front garden/terrace. Our room was large and comfortable although decor a little dated. On the plus side, the hotel is in a great location - very handy for beach, shops and train station. The garden is a welcome retreat in the middle of a city, and the staff were accommodating and helpful to myself and 2 year old son. (Room service very quick!). The only problem I encountered was on checkout where I was charged an extra 25 euros per night for my son when my original reservation stated he stayed for free. The reception staff refused to discount this amount and I had to rectify this matter on my return home with letters and emails. However a couple of weeks later I received a refund. All in all, I enjoyed my stay here and Nice is just a wonderful place to visit - ideal for travelling around the Cote d'azur, but I would advise anyone to check their reservation details on arrival to avoid any confusion later!
Very Best restaurant L'Agam
We stayed in February during ? Congres GSM, the hotel had been fully booked and the reception gave us a small room but sympathetic , the hotel is in the heart of the city in a very beautiful area , but the must it's a lovely garden open on a restaurant AGAM with one evening of Jazz and fantastic dinner for 19 euros evening , not expensive
Hated the Tulip
We stayed at the Tulip hotel for a weekend in February 2004 during Carnival. First, the hotel had messed up our reservation and put my husband and I in two separate single rooms in stead of one double. They could not give us a double and they would not change their room rate even though they admitted their mistake. So, we shared a single room.
The room itself was horrible, old and dirty furniture and so small. The staff was not friendly or apologetic for their mistake. We will not be visiting the Tulip again.

we return! very Nice we are very satisfed with our stay at the Brice hotel and enjoyed the breakfast, we have to like the evening jazz in the beautiful garden very much!
Basic rooms, great restaurant, friendly staff
My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in July 2003. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was basic (just shower - no bath, only one pillow each, no mirror in room itself) but clean with effective air-conditioning. Mini bar was permanently locked though and no tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast was of a good standard. What gives the hotel its high rating (rather than the average one it would otherwise have had) was the restaurant and gardens, especially the former. This is the best 'in-house' restaurant of any standard city hotel we have ever stayed at. We had thought we would need to 'eat out' each evening but the food, wine and service were so good we eat here both nights.
Hope to go back to the Brice hotel
Thanks for making our stay in Nice really good, we had a great time and the staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. Hope to go back to the Brice again and the beautiful area of theCote D'Azur. Thanks again from the Hickey Family. Virginia Hickey
Hotel of charm & lovely
I believe that this person exagere, I sejourné 2 times in this hotel and I can say to you that this very pleasant it has a personnel pleasant and available, rooms roomy and renovated modern, excellent breakfast, a splendid garden, I cannot leave false allegations against this hotel
I've booked the hotel Brice for a week. It was really terrible so I left after one night. The room was dark and noisy, furniture old and smelly, the staff even does not know what hospitality means. Breakfast was bad and overpriced, but the worst was the very unfriendly manager at check out. There are a lot of better hotels in the price range around, so avoid to go to Brice Hotel
