Le Nicea Hotel
Property information by Wcities, Inc
This two-star hotel in the centre of town is a few minutes from the railway station and close to all local amenities: restaurants, shops, cinemas, and public transport. Even so, its immediate surroundings are mostly residential and thus fairly quiet. The soundproofed rooms, which are light and comfortable, face the street or an inner courtyard. The decor is unfussy and modern. There is a terrace on each floor from which you can survey the rooftops of Nice. The hotel caters mostly for groups. The hotel is closed in January.
We checked into the hotel in the morning-small and sparse room but adequate. We didn't go back until late in the evening and went right to bed. In the middle of the night we awoke and little bugs were crawling everywhere. In the morning (we should have gone down in the middle of the night) we showed the manager the dead bugs we had killed in kleenex. There were blood stains in all the bugs. He gave us a much nicer room on the top floor but we had to examine our clothes and get the bugs out. It was horrid. We did not see anymore bugs during our stay (but I now know you usually don't see bedbugs unless there is a major infestation as in the first room) BUT when I got home, I started getting these itching bites. I went on the internet, did some research and learned these were bedbugs! The welts from the bugs can appear 9 days after the bite (which is why I had no itching in Nice; we were only there 4 nights) And, I learned that bedbugs lay eggs on suitcases, clothes and it takes about 7days for the eggs to hatch. Travelers bring them into their homes on suitcases and the eggs hatch in their homes. I have been to Europe many times and I never knew what a bedbug was; I had never seen a bedbug in my life; I had no idea how horribly hard these bugs are to exterminate (I am still spraying, washing, calling exterminators... ) I now know more than most anyone about bedbugs ( which I won't go into). I have written to the hotel several times; they knew what these bugs were and never warned me about isolating my suitcase, clothes, etc. when I returned home. I have asked for a refund but no response...Bedbugs are one of the worst things. Believe me, you do not want to take the risk of staying here and being haunted by these nasty monsters.
The hotel staff were very responsive. I had a car and they found parking in front for it. I needed a recommendation for a restaurant - they recommended one and called the taxi. They could map out how to get to all the major sights - in english.
The location was pretty good - 5 minutes driving to the Promenade but not in the prettiest side of the town.
The room was clean and very quiet. It was May so no need for heat or airconditioning. It looked as if there was brand new airconditioners installed in the breakfast room and our room did have a digital thermostat. The doors opened into other peoples backyard - not a good view but fresh air. There was also a porch with tables and chairs that looked over the rooftops. The lift was antiquated but sufficient. I spent 5 nights and would go back.....(these are the nicest people you can find!)
