We stayed here last year, and in my review i said that it was the first of the many places we've stayed at in Nice that we wanted to return to. Happily we have now been able to do so, and we again enjoyed this clean, comfortable, and well equipped apartment, in an area that seems to get better all the time. Alberto (owner) and Vicky (local agent) continue to ensure that it earns its "friendly" title, and some minor problems were quickly dealt with. Hopefully we'll be back again next year!
This apartment is ideal for a single person or a couple. It's in a great area of Nice, close to old town (which really is the heart of Nice) and a short walk to the Marina, where you'll find some Restaurants and Ma Nolan's Irish Gastro pub, which we recommend. We also walked from Promenade Anglaise in 20 minutes. This is one of the things we loved most about the apartment its within walking distance of so much of the main attractions of Nice.
There are also lots of places to eat on the doorstep as well as several nearby supermarkets. The Plaza is lively at night and it's great to people watch on the apartments small balcony.
The double bed is very comfortable, firm but not hard with no lumps. There is a wardrobe just off the lounge/kitchen area with double mirrored doors.
The Bathroom is small but perfectly adequate. The shower is good and simple to
use. Towels are provided.
The small kitchenette is open plan and is well presented with a Microwave, hob (no oven), Kettle and toaster. A wash cloth and Tea Towels are provided. There is an Iron but strangely no Ironing board, this is probably the only negative thing I have to say.
There is a sofa bed style double seat, a small table with seating for four, a medium sized TV which has 7 English speaking (news only) channels, but also has USB and Html ports so if you're techie you could connect to your own device. We didn't know this before so we watched a lot of News and music channels later in the evenings.
Alberto the owner is extremely helpful and easy to communicate with and Vicky his
representative will meet and greet on your arrival and provide you with information about the flat and the local area. We locked ourselves out once and she was there within 10 minutes to let us back in.
I would highly recommend this apartment and its owner Alberto.
From the start Alberto has been the best host i have dealt with communication skills and useful information brilliant, Apartment very clean with a balcony that is great for people watching!!, Nice is particuarly hot this year compared to others the apartment would greatly benefit from air conditioing to make it even better otherwise would strongly recomend to anybody.
We were really pleased with the apartment. It is equipped with everything you need. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is particularly good. As expected in July it was very hot. However this is able to be controlled by keeping the shutters closed during the day and there are 2 very good fans within the apartment. The apartment is in a great location. It's within walking distance to the beach and very central to Place Garibaldi and the old town in which there is an abudance of lovely restaurants and markets. The owner Alberto was always very helpful during the booking process and the time coming up to our stay by offering advice on transport and places worth visiting. His assistant Vicky was also very welcoming on arrival. We will definitely recommend this accommodation to others.
Lovely apartment with balcony, plenty of room for us as couple. Very clean and well maintained. Very close to local cafes and bars. Vicky very helpful and waited for us after delayed flight. Plenty of information of places to visit , restaurants to use and what transport to use
