      Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Nice Centre Gare

      Great value and location

      from

      We have been visiting Nice a couple of times a year for the past five years and stayed at the Ibis Nice centre by chance on our first trip. It was a lucky find. We have stayed there ever since. It is certainly not the most attractive hotel in Nice but it is very clean, has very comfortable beds and has excellent air conditioning which YOU can actually control! There is a sunny terrace on the roof which has a small but attractive pool and bar area which never seems too crowded or noisy even in summer. The hotel is right next to the railway station{you honestly never hear the trains from the hotel} and the bus stop for the airport. It is only a few minutes walk from the shops and restaurants in the city centre. The beach is about 15/20 minutes walk away. The area around the hotel is not upmarket but has never seemed threatening and is typical of most city hotels near railway or bus transport links. We are heading back to Nice in a few weeks time and are staying at the...Ibis Nice Centre...

      Good Value in Nice

      from

      I stayed at the Ibis Nice Centre for 4 nights in May 2005. The hotel is fairly modern and the rooms are spotless. Although the rooms are very small you can't beat the price. The hotel is right next to the train station which makes it easy if you plan to explore the area with day trips to Cannes or Monaco. Don't let the location turn you off. I have noticed in other reviews people mention that the area around the hotel is a bit seedy...well that is true, but to be honest I find the entire city of Nice to be a bit seedy overall. If I were to return to Nice I would definately stay here again, however I think if I were to return to this area I would stay in Cannes which is much nicer and has a better beach.

      ABove Standard 2 * Hotel

      from

      Being a frequent traveller to Nice (will have racked up 6 trips this year when I return in a weeks time) I'm aware that the hotels there are very pricey. I've stayed in expensive accomodation there, but the Nice Centre Ville Ibis has become my home away from home the last 4 trips.

      It is ideally located for the train station, which is great for exploring the nearby locations of Cannes, and Monte Carlo. There is also a small coastal village called Villefranche, which has to rank as one of France's most picturest places.

      Anyway I'm drifting here... the Ibis is for Nice very good value for money. The rooms are compact, but clean, and housekeeping there seems to be a priority. Towels are changed daily. The staff all speak good English.

      There is a good restaurant offering reasonably priced food.

      Location wise, whilst been great for the train station it is a little way from the beach, and Promenade Des Anglais. Saying that I can do it in a leisurely 15 minutes, or less if I speed walk :-) But the daily walk is all part of my trip.

      The area around the hotel can seem a little on the seedy side, with Sex Shops close by. On my first visit, I was a little concerned by the number of drunk tramps in and around the station, but I've never ever had any problems. I think you have to be a little street wise, and not go waving your wallet around. Most of the bums there would run a mile if you so much as shouted "boo" at them.... so there's really nothing to be afraid of.

      Summing up, the Ibis will continue to be my hotel of choice on my up coming trips to Nice.

      Whilst not cheap in comparison to other hotels in other countries, it is a very good value 2 star hotel for Nice.

      The other bonus is that the shuttle bus service from the airport stops almost outside the front door.... for around a couple of pounds.

      Highly recommended.

      Not very nice

      from

      The safety of the neighborhood is very questionable, as most of areas around railway stations are generally everywhere. Though this was not my first visit to an Ibis hotel, the room was the smallest I have ever seen: if my suitcase was open, I could only jump across the bed to go to the other side of the room. Staff were not friendly but never unpolite. I would not stay here again.

      Great Hotel

      from

      Although the Ibis is only a two star hotel and mainly aimed at the business traveller my wife and I stayed there for a week and were very impressed. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean, airconditioned and the bed linen changed every day. Breakfast was buffet style and served from 6.30 to 12.00 and the evening meals were very good and good value. There is a small swimming pool which is quite a sun trap. The hotel is right next to the railway station which is convenient for the rest of the coast. There is a bus from the airport to the station which is good value, 3.5 euros one way. The only slight drawback was that it was a 10 to 15 minutewalk to the promenade des anglais. All in all a great week.

      Great view

      from

      Ibis in Nice is right next to railway station so very convenient for me with my bags. I had a room on top floor with superb view over Nice to the sea from my room. Has WiFi internet facilities (pay basis, not free). Clean and comfortable. The immediate area round the hotel is boring, but it is a 10 minute walk to the promenade where the hotels on the sea-front and REALLY expensive! I was really happy with the hotel.

      Beggars and graffiti

      from

      Got cheap flights to Nice in May 2004. Stayed at Ibis Nice centre near to train station. Having stayed in "travelinns/travelodge" in the uk I expected something similar. I was disappointed as the rooms were cramped, smelt of stale smoke and the hotel had the personality of a hotel with absolutely no personality. Ibis Nice centre is tatty in appearance and in a run down area opposite sex shops. Nice itself is poor also. Vastly overpriced bars, graffitti everywhere and the pavements littered in beggars and dog mess. Take my advice. If you fly into Nice, stay in Cannes. The sandy beaches are clean the food&drink cheaper and also a very good selection of shops (tons of designer outlets). Cannes also has good rail links to Monaco and Nice( if you must!)

      Perfect

      from

      perfect location , as soon as you come out the train station it is on your right hand side, if you walk straight down one of the streets opposite the hotel/station the beach is 8-10 minutes away, and it is awesome but pebbly. the hotel is very good value for money, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is always excellent all you can eat, breads juices meat cheese cereal croissants sweet buns yoghurt etc etc we usually stay at ibis while in france and spain as most have a/c which this one does. ibis are the best we stayed here 3 times and at least 10 others in france and spain and never had a problem, if you have a problem they cant solve within a short time then the room is on them, look for the card in the room that says it. we stayed in one in marseille and had brown water so i complained and they got a guy out at midnight to flush all the pipes with boiling water from the roof and cleared the problem, at least while we were there. highly recomend this hotel in nice to everyone as its location is great.

      A good choice

      from

      I think we've made a good choise , april 2003 choosing this hotel. It was clean, cheap, for a little extra (10 ) we got a bigger room on the 7-th floor. The pool wasn't filled so we had to go to the sea everyday. The hotel is located in the citycenter and not very close to the sea. So you have to walk trough the city every day (+/- 10 min)but it is worth! First you pass by the shops and then closer by the water you have an huge variety of restaurants. Very nice!

      Nothing to shout about but good value.

      from

      If you are looking for luxury move on, looking for basic accomodation read on.

      The hotel is well kept several times on my weeks stay there I met management personel in the elevators checking out the hotel. When I arrived my room had a slight stain on the floor,and towards the end of my stay I had to change rooms whist they replaced the carpet. The rooms are small, adequate and clean, they have television with an English channel. It is a modern hotel (199 rooms) with good sound proofed windows, it's unimpressive from the outside. It is located next to the train station has a parking garage attached, there are all kinds of shops close to the hotel for eating and shopping. In conclusion the price is right and I would stay there again.

      We walked around looking at the Palace and the guards and then asked a
      guard who did not speak great English where to find the Petit Train for a tour
      of Monaco (did not think a repeat of the walking Saturday would be conducive to
      engaged kids!!) The tour started at
      9.25am and was in English, took us to all the main places around Monaco and was
      great to get some of the history in the commentary – we all learned
      something!! The ride ...

We had a swim in the ocean and returned back to Nice to make for a great morning out. Our time in Nice was amazing and relaxing. It was the first time we had 4 nights in one destination with our own cooking facilities. We vowed we should do it again as whilst you think being on ...

Also, if there's anything more adorable than a little boy in a Speedo, I don't know what it is. I couldn't get enough of those little cuties!

      ... back to Nice, it had sunshine too, but there were large clouds over the hills behind.
      We saw the local water fountain in one corner that each of the old towns and villages have, which was being used by a man filling a bucket to clean his footpath; an old hand water pump as well as a large communal wash trough, under a tiled shelter, with washing hanging around it! Very quaint. They also had an extensive under-cover market area of all kind of foods.
