Historical Traveler Reviews Massenet Hotel Nice
Good Value, Excellent Location
Just come back from a 4 night break at the Hotel Massenet. The first thing to comment on is the location of the hotel. It's literally 30 seconds off the Promenade d'Anglais and about 20 seconds off the pedestrianised street where there are many restaurants and shops. It's also very quiet as it's tucked in behind some apartments. It's about 10 minutes walk to the Old Town, 15 minutes walk to the railway station and 20 minutes drive from the airport. We booked an airport transfer service in advance via the Easy Jet website, which dropped us off and picked us up right at the hotel door.
The room was a decent size and had quite a cosy feel with a big bed. The bathroom looked brand new and had a nice shower, hairdryer and large mirror. There's no full length mirror in the room but there is one in reception if you want to check your appearance before you leave the hotel! The rooms are equipped with a free safe and fridge...and very good at keeping beer cold! It's the same as many European hotels though in that there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. However, we took a travel kettle with us which was great, especially as we could keep milk fresh in the fridge.
Previous reviews were right about the breakfast. A basket is on each table and contains a croissant, bread roll and pain au chocolat each. You've got a choice of butter, honey, jams and soft cheese to go with them, as well as any amount of orange juice, teas, coffee, cappucino and hot chocolate. I was disappointed in the lack of choice for breakfast, however what I got was what I would have eaten anyway so I've got no reason for complaint.
Overall, this was an excellent choice of hotel because of the location and value for money. You could tell the hotel has been recently renovated and although the rooms weren't anything flash they were nice. If we'd wanted luxury we'd have paid a lot more money for a hotel on the Promenade. I would definitely stay here again on another trip to Nice, as a lot of other 3* hotels in the area didn't look anywhere near as good as Massenet.
We stayed at the Massenet which is in excellent position in Nice, close to all ameneties but in a quiet part of the town in June.
We found the hotel to be of excellent value, spotlessly clean and were pleasantly surprised at the size of the bedroom and bathroom.
The staff were particularly helpful and I would recommend this hotel if you like to be close to the town centre but enjoy a quieter situation.
Really nice hotel
this is a really nice hotel in an excellent location. the hotel itself is really clean with huge rooms and bathrooms and the staff are really friendly. the hotel is situated halfway between the old and new town, just a street away from the beach with loads of restaurants and shops around it. am planning to go back to same hotel later this year.
Great hotel for even better prices!!
A hotel worthy of more than the 3 stars it has now. Rooms we stayed in looked brand new, well decorated and certainly didn't look cheap. Reception was helpful and friendly, parking under the hotel which is great cause you won't find a spot anywhere near the hotel. Step outside and turn right to see the boulevard of Nice and the sea! Again, worth at least 4 stars!
Very good value for money
This nice hotel is situated conveniently in a quiet street between the pedestrian area and the sea, only a ten minute walk from the Old Town. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with refrigerator, hairdryer and saftey deposit box (which is for free). Bathroom and toilet are separated and large. The room was clean and nice, staff was very friendly and helpful. If you can do without sewing kits, shower cap, trouser press and lots of brochures on luxurious shops and restaurants, this hotel offers a good standard for a reasonable price. The only thing one could mention is a rather poor choice for breakfast (croissants, rolls, butter, jam and packed cheese), which is offset by the moderate price you pay for staying at a quiet, well located and clean hotel.
Superb location in fantastic Nice.
Just returned from first visit to Nice. This hotel is just great value as regards to location, virtually perfect, as the sea front is only 50 meters one way and all the shops and eating places 50 meters in the other direction.
The hotel is small, very cosy and seems to have been renovated and updated very recently. Our room was spotless and even had a fridge and modern safety deposit box, free of charge. The staff were so friendly and very helpful in all matters. The only fault I could find is the breakfast.
Only tea,coffee and bread and jam on offer. I think if they supplied some cereal,( cornflakes ) it would help get you off to a better start in the morning. Apart from that this hotel is exellent value for money and I would definetly return and recommend to my family and friends.
Super inexpensive hotel on edge of old town
This is a lovely hotel(3 star) on the rue Massenet 1 minutes walk from the tourist info office.It's clean,fresh & everything works!2 things to note - there are no tea making facilities in the fairly large bedrooms(though there is a fridge) & no shower curtain in the newly refurbished bathroom(as yet, anyway)We were there on Valentine's weekend which was also the start of two weeks carnival;both the hotel & carnival are highly recommended.
Peace and quiet in the city centre
Only two minutes walk from the beautiful esplanade and right in the heart of the city, but tucked away in a peaceful location with absolutely no traffic noise. We stayed in this "little gem" of a hotel last month but only for 1 night as we were "in transit". Very clean and comfortable and great rates for Nice. Compact bathrooms and little kitchens but very poor breakfast for euro 8. Far better to have breakfast out or bring something in and make your tea/coffee in the little kitchen.
Great location, OK hotel
This hotel is 100m from the beach in a glorious climate. It should be so much better than it is.
The room was clean but lacked character, with no distinguishing features: it could have been anywhere. Breakfast was acceptable but make sure you get the tariff where it's included as €8 for a couple of croissants and vending-machine coffee is a bit steep.
At one point, I thought I got the distinct whiff of smelly drain in the room but I may have been wrong as it didn't happen again.
The location is excellent and this is definitely a budget hotel. With a little investment, this could be a superb budget hotel. As it is, it just about passes muster.
Very good standard
We stayed at this hotel in the room Type Classic for a few days and really liked it. It was a pleasant room made in warm colours with a little hall, clean bathroom, small additional room with a sink and fridge. It also had a safe, TV, balcony and individual air-conditioning. The hotel was right in the centre of Nice, about 100 metres to the beach and close to the street Rue de France with lots of cafes and restaurants. Very quiet but at the same time very central location. Little and cosy hotel.
There were two little crackes on the ceiling but we didn't really care as the room on the whole was very good for the money that it cost. One disadvantage: they don't change towels every day and if you want to have them changed you have to go with your used towels to the reception and ask them to change. They said it was care for the environment not to use too much washing powder. There was no hairdryer in the bathroom but they have them at the reception to hire for free. As well as the iron and ironing board. On the whole a very good hotel, excellent value for money.

... bread and breadsticks to snack on. Then we went into a grocery shop to buy water. They don’t give you bags. We were lucky to get one at the bakery. I brought my Vera Bradly bag. It is good for small shopping.
For dinner we were surprised at the large size of the portions. My husband had mussels for a starter. They brought him a huge pot. We ordered chicken and each got a half of chicken.
... then buy a barracks and put it wherever they wanted. Virginie's in-laws bought one and put it on a cliff overlooking the ocean. We decided that Anne-Sophie would have a winter home in Provence.
So even though the French generally make less money than we do in the U.S., in the end it's pretty much the same. They have less money to retire on, but they don't have to worry about medical expenses. Their pensions will even pay for a retirement/nursing home ...

Gossip is flying around on the ipad's despite the fact we're mere feet apart. Ganz messages me a story direct from Victoria's own mouth last night: She says that she was keen on someone last night and gave them plenty of signs (I am too drunk to even think back if it was me or not). ...
... our breakfast. We had looked up the bus in an information booklet at the hotel. It took us to the stop for bus arriving from Monaco, not leaving for Monaco. We waited for 30 minutes before a bus arrived from Monaco and explained that fact to us. The correct stop was around the block. Turns out we weren't the only curious tourists, as the bus was incredibly crowded from Nice to Monaco. After an hour we were dropped off near the Palace square in Monaco. We walked up the hilltop to ...
