This was our fourth European hotel during this vacation. The hotel is quirky which can be fun with the right staff and service. But the service was the worse we experienced during our trip. Asking for directions or guidance for buses , distances to attractions, etc was meet with sour attitude. And one cup of luke warm coffee in the morning was 4.5 euros. They dont even provide a cup of coffee in the morning. Better breakfast options around the corner. We bought a bottle of wine in Nice and were not allowed to drink it on the patio. There was one staff member that was helpful. (He was at the front desk the morning we left)

My friend and I spent a few days in Nice just to have some sun and a feeling of summer. The Hotel Windsor is nice and clean and from there only a few steps to the sea. We enjoyed very much the fine breakfast in the little garden and recommend the place with pleasure. Busstop coming from the airport near to the hotel is no more called "Meyerbeer" but "Congrès".

The best feature of Hotel Windsor is its locaton, superbe for visiting city or its beaches. An unexpected extra is the lovely tropical garden where refreshments are being served by a very welcoming and helpfull staff. For those in search of something less typical yet special, with a touch of art, highly recommended.

The Windsor is an art hotel, so the room was decordated uniquely, but not to my taste (cold blue and white). The garden off the lobby was a very green and lush oasis - be sure to stop and spend some time there. For 120 euro our room was small, one of the smallest rooms in the hotel. The bathroom was so small you could hardly sit on the toilet with the door closed. The room A/C wouldn't keep the room cool, so we opened the window, but the street noise made this only a short term remedy. The hotel did provide an English newspaper in the lobby and one computer for internet access (but the keyboard has a French key layout and most difficult to use for me - I gave up). There is a bus stop just around the corner, but otherwise there's nothing special about the blocks around the hotel. Next time we'll stay at a less expensive hotel and accept a little less in decore. BTW, I think the cost of breakfast is way too much at the hotel, eat somewhere else.

liked this hotel very much and would for sure come back. in almost residential area of Nice, but still very close to everything (just three or four blocks to the promenade des anglais). our chambre d'artiste (No. 57, by Claude Parmiggiani) was symply amazing. We just loved it. Plus, the room was facing the garden. The only bad thing was that we were right next to the elevator and grand staircase - the door to the hallway was not exactly soundproof... Cocktails and dinner in the garden was excellent and not expensive at all. the breakfast is a little overpriced for what you get though. all in all, a great stay! overall maybe 8.5 out of 10.

smaller rooms and hotel than i thought based on photographs, although typical for europe. checked out other nearby hotels and they were similiar in size but most were more expensive,and some not so clean. so this is good value for what you can get in Nice. we went for the basic room. if i stay here again, i would try a better room (superior/deluxe). also the rooms facing the garden would be quieter. our room was very loud and faced the street.

The hotel has a lovely garden, helpful staff and is in a good location close to the pedestrianised area of Nice. That said, I'd booked a couple of 'superior' rooms, which were comfortable enough but nothing special. Overall I thought the Windsor was nice but a bit overpriced

Nice is beautiful and this is an excellent hotel. The location is great - 5 mins from beach and 15 from train station. our room was funky and clean. The gym is more of a mediation space with some weights and benches. Unfortunately the wireless internet was down for the whole of my stay but i'll give the staff the benefit of the doubt on this one. Garden and pool area is small but very relaxing and more like a private residence than a hotel.

The problem with this hotel is plain old false advertising. This is NOT a boutique hotel. I've stayed in cheaper, cleaner and more spacious youth hostels. The photographs only show the more expensive rooms and the "comfort" rooms are anything but. Our room - #111 - was horrible. The decor was an ice landscape, however the carpets were rust orange, the walls were dirty and the rubbish bin had ash in it. I don't know when the last time our room was cleaned as it was covered in dust. The shower had all these side attachments that didn't work. If you dare wake up after 10am good luck getting hot water. Our room was the staging area for housekeeping who would bang their carts and gear against the wall from 8:30am and walk around the hallways speaking very loudly. Oh, and they completely ignored our "do not disturb" sign and did our room anyway, ignoring the hotel's eco policy. The walls are thin, even for this type of old building, so that you can here your upstairs neighbour come home drunk, yelling and flushing the toilet. The beds are so uncomfortable that by the time I checked out I couldn't life our bags due to back/shoulder pain. Their breakfast is overpriced. Oh I could go on and on about how much I disliked this hotel. The good is that the staff was helpful, kind and understanding of our school-learned french. They even gave us a free glass of champagne for our troubles. What they should have done was an upgrade. And the common areas were very cool - the garden and pool area is really nice. If you stay here, do yourself a favor and pay the extra for one of the pretty rooms with balconies.

We had researched hotels in Nice for a good location and recommendations and found the Windsor Hotel. We were not disappointed and found the hotel only a short walk from the Promenade Anglais airport bus stop. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We had booked a superior room and were given a first floor room with a view through double doors overlooking the pleasant garden and patio. If we higher up we could have more time to enjoy the novelty lift. We breakfasted and had dinner in the hotel once and the food was excellent and recommend anyone staying there should eat in once. It was our first visit to Nice together and we packed a lot into our 4 days. All places of interest are in easy walking distance of the hotel. I'd recommend taking the city tour bus to get bearings and because it's hop off and on you get visit the museums etc on the way round. We seemed to end up in the old town most days were there a excellent bars and places to eat. We took the local bus up to Eze and walked down the path to Villefranche. Another trip worth considering is taking the train to the Italian market town of Ventimiglia and stopped off in Monte Carlo on the way back. The only bad experience was a very disappointing dinner by the sea at Beau Rivage, talk about Fawlty Towers and the spoon salesman. We'd highly recommend the Windsor Hotel and Nice for a long weekend break.

This hotel is very welcoming and efficient; the employees speak good english and were helpful on the phone. There is a free internet access point if you don't have your own computer. The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the pedestrianised centre streets and about the same from the Promenade des Anglais, but the location is quiet with plenty of restaurants nearby. I would recommend this hotel.

The Windsor was a delight from start to finish. The only disappointment was that we were booked for just the one night! We stayed in the Aladdin Room which had a delightful mural and a small balcony overlooking the lush tropical garden. It was situated next to the lift shaft which was a slight concern, but noise from the lift was thankfully not a problem. The bathroom was tastefully decorated and provided the usual complimentary toiletries which were of good quality. Minibar prices were e2.50 per item - not bad for a bottle of beer, but a bit steep for a small water or packet of peanuts. We took advantage of the breakfast for 12 euros - not cheap but it was the more convenient option for us at the time. The self service breakfast was served in the garden and consisted of various fruit juices, cereals, breads, cold meat, cheese and tomatoes and eggs for you to boil yourself. There were also pastries and a variety of preserves. The waiter brought coffee/tea and a refill was no problem. You could also have requested breakfast to be served to your room. We also took advantage of booking a full body massage. This took place in the gym/spa area which was lovely and the masseuses were very competent and professional. The lift was fun - a retro mural of a space shuttle taking off with a recording of the 10 second coutdown, reaching "Lift Off!" as we arrived on the 4th floor! Thankfully no "Houston, we have a problem" was heard! The reception staff were all very polite and helpful and leaving our large case in storage for the day was not a problem. The Hotel is well situated on a quiet street and the walk from the train station took us less than 10 minutes. The Promenade des Anglais is a two minute walk, whilst the Old Town area is less than ten minutes. Would definitely return to the Windsor.

My wife and I took a short break (5 days) in Nice and stayed at the Windsor Hotel. We went for the Windsor because of the excellent and accurate description provided by Venere.The hotel is in an excellent location with excellent resturants and bars within 500m. Easy access to the bus routes and 15min walk from the train station. We used the excellent and cheap buses (1 euro per return bus journey or 4 euros for all day travel) to visit...St Paul De Vence.....Eze village...Monte Carlo (I lost 25 euro in the Casino) and The Matisse Museum......a lot in 4/5 days. The Windsor Hotel staff were absolutly excellent......the hotel garden was an excellent spot to return to at night for a night cap.........I have already recommended The Windsor to my freinds and both my wife and I hope to return......Many thanks Venere and Hotel Windsor for a great break.

The room we had was a bit on the small side but very quirkily decorated. Our windows faced the street so when they were open, things got a bit noisy.

Arrived late with fractious toddler - got upgraded to superior room because standard rooms won't accommodate a 'lit bebe' which isn't clear on the website; helpful and friendly staff bent over backwards to sort it all out and didn't charge for the upgrade.

This was our third visit to this hotel and we decided to upgrade to a superior room over the lovely garden. The bathroom turned out to be a bit small because part of it is taken up by the lift shaft, but there was a lovely balcony with garden view. There were fresh towels every day and all of the staff are welcoming and helpful. We found the location of the hotel ideally situated for the train station, the beach and resturants. It prides itself on being a little unusual and we started laughing when we got into the lift on arrival and were accompanied to our floor by the sound of the countdown and take-off of an Apollo spacecraft!. We'll go again.

Windsor is a gem of a place. The staff were so friendly, and the large, gorgeous garden was like a corner of paradise in the middle of Nice. The full-body shower with five showerheads was a fantastic surprise, as were the high ceilings and the little balcony overlooking the street. About a 20 minute walk from the old town, but quite convenient for the train station. Staff spoke English fluently, and volunteered maps, etc. Definitely recommend.

The staff of this hotel, especially the night group, are very unfriendly. In my case, they managed to lose my reservation 1 day before I was to arrive, and simply brushed off my questions about it. I never even received an apology for the hassle and expense they put me through. They definitely show signs of being tired of the whole "tourist" thing, so it is a good thing they are in the tourist business. The rooms are spacious, though not terribly new or clean, though it depends if you get a artist room or not I suppose. The lounge and garden are superb, though don't plan on using the pool, as it isn't cleaned often. They shouldn't even mention their "fitness center" as well, because the few measly weights there and other outdated equipment better qualified it for a fitness museum.

Our stay nearly got off to a bad start. When we arrived on Tuesday 1st August our booking did not appear on the Hotel Windsor's list of arrivals for that day. Thankfully it was sorted within ten minutes. This is our third stay at the Hotel Windsor and it gets better ever year here's looking forward to our stay in 2007!

First stay at the Hotel Windsor and we'd definitely go back. It was as we'd expected - we had a beautifully painted room. The garden was a haven of tranquility and the service was good. We didn't eat there but the drinks were fine. The hotel is well located for the beach and the station. The instructions on getting the bus from the airport were good. The only downside was that we could hear other guests in their bathroom next door.

This was my second time staying here and it was due to an excellent first stay. The second time around was not as fantastic, but still very clean rooms, reasonable price and a great location. The staff were friendly, just not as friendly as I remembered. I would stay there again.

Wonderful! As you can see from the pictures, every room is different and cool. It was spotless and more that big enough for two, especially for Europe Location is great, right near a pedestrian mall and close to the old city. The woman who checked us in was great. The guy at reception the next day was a bit snotty, but this is France, after all. Unreal value. Stay here. And look for the little surprise in the elevator! If you have never been to Nice, GO!

Nice original and artistic hotel with a shady garden with pool that must be a great oasis in summer (now in February it was closed). Perfect central location in the center of Nice and close to the boulevard. At first our room (two women friends, so we asked for seperate beds) looked a bit plain and strange with all kinds of artistic details, but quite soon we became to like it. Good and spacious shower. Nice relaxing and fitness room with sauna/hammam and massage possibilities ont the top floor.

For the price the room was large but fairly ordinary - not as comfortably furnished as a 'superior' room would suggest. The restaurant was closed on the Sunday evening we arrived at 8.30 p.m. so had to check in and then leave to eat. It was also closed Monday - no reason given. We ordered tea from room service and received a small pot of hot water for the tea bags but no milk. Biscuits were not available as the 'restaurant'was closed. This small pot of tea was later charged at €8. It was a nice hotel in the reception area, and centrally located but I do not think it was good value for the money in January.

Wonderful hotel in good, central location east of the "throng" but walking distance. Our room was perfect-they even brought a doggie bowl and little protection blanket for our dogs. One surprise in such a good hotel is that there were no hair dryers and no plug near a mirror to use for my own dryer. Very 70s kind of thing: otherwise I enthusiastically recommend the Windsor and would go back when the outdoor garden and POOL are open!

Stayed here for 3 nights in October with my daughter. The Windsor is a "quirky" hotel and ideally located to explore Nice. We had a twin room which looked onto the street and it was surprisingly quieter than I thought it would be. It was fairly basic but is was made interesting by the artistic touches! It was also absolutely spotless. All the staff were friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely recommend and will definitely return!

This was a great find. We had a ground floor room on the garden which meant we could enjoy 2 lovely dinners in the garden while our daughter (15months) was already asleep in bed. Staff and service were both efficient and friendly. Never expected to find such a slice of tranquility in the middle of a modern city. Definitely recommended.

This is a real nice hotel - esp if you appreciate the art-centric decoration. The staff were friendly and the room given to me (the white on white) was big and clean. I managed to take a peek at some other room, some can be quite small but all looks very interestingly decorated and nice. The location is also good, in a relatively quite area within walking distance to central station as well as Promenade de Anglais. Overall - I was quite impressed with the hotel. Not a bad choice at all!

The hotel windsor was a really lovely hotel. it was situated very close to all amenities in a very quiet but central part of Nice. The service was excellent and was very good value for the price paid. We had a lovely room at the back of the hotel overlooking the garden which itself was beautiful. I would advise a garden facing room as the little scooters that drive around at night time can be very noisy. The only negative thing about this room was the fact that the staff setting the tables for breakfast were slightly heavy handed with the cutlery which woke our child on a couple of mornings. Breakfast was an extra 10 euro per person but worth it if you have a child and want the convenience. All in all a lovely holiday in a great hotel.

This was a really neat place to stay. Each room is decorated different, however, the quality of the work is kind of low. It's not funky really, not like regular boutique hotels. It's like they reached for it, because a family member wanted to design it. Other than that, I loved the accomodations. I'll stay again, and look forward to my next visit.

We were originally scheduled to stay at Les Cignales and switched to Hotel Windsor last minute because they had great ratings and also had a pool. I'm so happy with our decision. Hotel Windsor was my favorite hotel of all the hotels we stayed in during our trip around Europe. It was adorable, clean, creative and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The garden area was so cute, I would recommend having the breakfast there in the morning. The pool was nice to have after a long day in the sun although it could have used more regular nettings (it's shaded by trees so we had to fight off the leaves in the pool). If you could upgrade to a balcony room it would be even nicer. We stayed in the room with the stained glass windows and checkerboard tables/funky chairs. Great big bathtub as well. The location was very convenient to both the Promenade de Anglais, Old town and the Nice train station. If you want a true "french hotel" experience, stay at the Hotel Windsor.

Hotel was in a good location with easy access to the beach and restaurants etc. On checkin I was assigned a room that smelled strongly of smoke, I asked for another room and was immediately given an alternative that was much better. The room was overlooking the street but was not too noisy. The gardens were very nice and was enjoyable to have breakfast out there. Overall I thought it was good value for money.

The garden with pool was a pleasant place to relax in green surroundings. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The deluxe rooms were very spacious and the entire facility was clean.

Charming & reasonably priced with elevator, short walk to beach.Extremely clean, comfortable beds & baths. The large ceiling fan in our room helped. There is an exercise room in the attic which involves a steep climb up some funny stairs; it has a bench, free weights, stationery bike, a shower, changing room,large skylights that open and a zen quality to it all. Didn't try sauna or massage. Small pool is in the garden, a great place to have a coffee, read, etc. The young staff are charming and very helpful. Art in the lobby's pretty nice, the stuff in our rooms wasn't earth-shattering. Try to get garden side rooms away from the side street. Busy area.
