The hotel is a tri-star hotel, but should be a two star hotel. The TV was not working properly, the window view was absolutely inadequate (all sort of rubbish on the roofs in from of the window), there was no point of electricity connection in teh room.

The map is not correct, it is missing one road before turn left to the correct street. The staff speak good english both at the day we arrive and the day we leave the hotel. They are kind and very helpfull. The bathroom is perfect, very clean and spacious (but the shower is very small). The location is near to main train station and easy to go to other places. This is my second time in Nice, my first time I spend two nights in the hotel located at old town.

I stayed in a room with 2 single beds and the beds/rooms would be small to an American but if you've traveled around Europe, its pretty normal. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but issue is with the cleanliness of the room- mainly that there were cobwebs in the corners of the high ceiling and marks on the walls and bleach-like mark on the dark carpet. Mattress wasn't that comfortable, but for just a night stay, where all I wanted was a bed with clean sheets and a shower- its fine.

Could have been cleaner. Bed, bathroom etc were clean but I noticed that the doors, walls and wardrobe were passed over by the cleaning staff. The door to the bed room was visabily soiled. Location is good as an overnight stop (Airport bus stop accross the road, train station near by etc) but the neighbourhood is visabily run down and I would be unsure as to how safe it would be at night.

First time In Nice. Very disappointed by the Hotel. Presence of Milldew on the walls. It is mentioned that they have air conditioning however in your room you always feel the humdity... and that's pretty much it. If you expect to get a/c forget about it...Does not deserve the rating of a 3 stars

This is our third stay at the Medicis in two years. Standard has been consistent, staff competent and friendly. Only a few minutes from the station, so a good base for exploring further afield, and about 15 - 20 minutes' walk to the Old Town.

Very disappointed with this hotel. The room was dirty and had an unpleasant smell to it. The bed was one of the most uncomfortable I have ever tried to sleep in. We were locked out one night because the night porter had left the hotel to get a drink. Glad there were no ploblems while he was away. I would never stay in this hotel again. The amazing thing about our stay is that we did stay for the four nights that were booked. Would not do that again.

the first words uttered from the man at reception was that venere customers don't get breakfast included (even though i was sure breakfast was included). Intriguing then that when I checked out I was charged for breakfasts that i didn't have - was well located to the station however.

Very friendly staff, receptionist allowed us access to room / storage for luggage before official check-in and avised on local tours / attractions. The bar / retaurant [Sunfish] is alongside.....seemed very quiet when we were there, late Oct. Room was very pleasant if slightly cramped, but this was only because our daughter used the sofa bed. Otherwise our room would have been more than adequate for 2 adults. Very close to SNCF station, as described. Only about 15 mns walk from the seafront and Promenade des anglais. A good value bet.

There is no way this place is a 3 star hotel. Service with attitude. You get a dirty look from the staff if you ask for a second cup of coffee for which you paid $10 for (Bad breakfast by the way). Stay away from this place.

The staff treat you like human beings: very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was a little inadequate (mostly cold stuff, nothing hot) and you have to get in early to get good choices. The room was meant to be a 'double superior' but I think that only means you get a couch in addition... On the whole though, a fine choice.

The room was small, but quiet, clean, and comfortable. Unfortunately, the hotel can be especially dark because the lights are usually off in the hallways. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the beaches and the main eateries. Although the location close to the station makes day trips convenient, I felt less than completely comfortable when walking around the hotel at night. The train station attracts some sketchy individuals (including prostitutes) in the evening. Nothing to be scared about, but I would be wary. You can save the hassle by paying 30 Euro more for an equivalent hotel closer to the core area. It all depends on your personality and budget. Overall, I would recommend the hotel with the caveat that the distance and neighbourhood make it less than ideal for many.

We enjoyed this hotel, close to the Nice station and the rooms were clean and just what you need when sightseeing. The bathrooms look new and although the rooms are small you do not need anything else. The only drawbacks are the rooms are close together and so you can hear your neighbour and the area the hotel is located in is not the best although we did not feel unsafe even at night.

What a wonderful place! The staff were fanatastic. we staggered in from a long train trip and were greeted genuinely and enthusiastically. Maps of Nice were provided without asking and suggestions were made for a quick way to Vieux Nice. The room was delightful esp the big white fluffy towels. The beds were very comfortable. Would recommend it highly!
