Located about midway between the Gare Nice-Ville railway station and the Promenande des Anglais, and quite near the tram system, the Holiday Inn Nice proved to be an excellent choice for a recent
eight-night stay for my wife and me, and two friends. Our rooms were clean, neat and comfortable, and the welcome gift of luscious fruit was most appreciated and enjoyed. They also very thoughtfully placed a cooler of iced tea in the lobby, which was very refreshing when returning to the hotel from walks around beautiful Nice.
The thing that really set the hotel apart, however, was the genuine friendliness and outstanding service of the staff. All seemed truly proud of the establishment and happy to assist in any way possible. While all of the staff were prompt, courteous and accommodating, for us Maria was most hospitable, knowledgeable, and helpful. She made us feel like special guests and provided superbly useful information about transportation and interesting sites, as well as excellent recommendations for dining.
We were quite pleased with Holiday Inn as the choice for our stay in Nice. It is conveniently located, reasonably priced, and staffed with top-notched personnel who certainly dispel the foolish myths about the unfriendliness of the French. The hotel played a big role in making our stay in Nice very enjoyable, and we hope to return for another visit in the future. [Less]
