My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel this time last year and I’ve only just got round to writing a review. Hotel de la Fontaine provided a great service- our room was clean and nicely decorated and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was great value to fill us up for the day ahead and it’s a 2 min walk to the prom and the sea view. We also borrowed some beach mats and umbrellas so we didn’t have to pay around €30 for the both of us for sun beds on the beach:)

This hotel was perfect for our needs and was located right on the edge of old town which had the best value and quality bars and eateries. It was also only a minute away from the main promenade which was lovely for a stroll. It was also only a 15/20 minute walk to the main train station for trips to Cannes/Antibes/Monaco.

The only downsides were the rooms were a little small which made storage interesting, though that may not bother other travellers. With the showers, the water pressure was a little weak and they were missing a shelf to put your toiletries on, at 6ft 5 and after a lot of walking it was a long way down! Also, the bar wasn’t that well stocked (no gin or lemonade all week) so if you are looking for an aperitif it may be best to stay out!

Otherwise, the staff were wonderful and nothing seemed to much trouble for them and we would thoroughly recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay and explore the region.

We enjoyed our short break at this hotel which is ideally positioned to explore the delights of Nice. A few minutes’ walk from the beautiful Promenade des Anglais with an abundance of restaurants and shops on the doorstep.
Our room, as expected, was very compact, manageable, although the bathroom was a tight squeeze. Comfortable bed, facilities in the room included a kettle, tea/coffee a fridge and a free safety deposit box. When the windows were closed it was very quiet even facing the street. We found the temperature in the room too warm for sleeping and kept the windows open all day to cool it down (air con is centrally controlled with only warm air available in winter months). Toiletries wise, best to take your own as no shower gel was supplied, strangely just bars of soap which were described as hair and body wash.
Breakfast was pleasant, a few hot and cold choices, some fresh fruit would have been nice. Outside there is a pretty little courtyard which would be lovely to take breakfast in warmer months.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly, thank you, the place was spotless and good value for money considering the excellent location.

We stayed in hotel de la Fontaine for 3 nights which we really enjoyed. The hotel was very central and staff were very friendly on arrival. The room was spacious and very clean which was situated on the ground floor and opened out onto a lovely terrace which was an added bonus. Unfortunately there was some small issues - firstly, in the hotel room we noticed and old musty smells which lingered throughout our stay. Secondly there was no space to hang out wet towels and clothing in the room which was a downfall when coming back after the beach. The hotel was very central with a 5 min walk from the beach and 15 min walk to old nice. We decided to eat in a small restaurant beside the hotel on our first night which did not disappoint (Vebbou.) Thank you Hotel de la Fontaine.

I stayed here about two weeks ago while visiting Nice. It was one of the nicest hotels we stayed at in France. We were able to get a room facing the courtyard rather than the street so it was very quiet and the rooms were comfortable. The concierge staff is really what makes this place shine. They are all very welcoming, accommodating and warm. Different staff members told us about activities to do around town and even helped us track down a private beach we could go to when the Blue Beach was full. The location was also excellent to old town and to Blue Beach. I would recommend staying here for anyone visiting Nice.

Scrupulously clean, friendly hotel in Nice Town Centre. We booked a garden room overlooking the courtyard, which was blissfully quiet. The bed was comfortable and the staff all made us feel very welcome. The location made a great base for exploring the town with a selection of good restaurants and shops nearby.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It’s one street back from the promenade and very central and walking distance to everything. The price for the location is good when you compare other hotels on the promenade are charging more than double. The rooms and hotel are very basic though along with breakfast. We found the rooms very noisy and not sound proof.

The staff were super friendly and accommodating, offering to store our bags before check-in and after check-out before we could even ask. They also placed our luggage in our rooms after checking in, saving us from lugging it upstairs ourselves. The room was very clean, and the location was great.

The location of the hotel is perfect- it is just one street away from the The Promenade, the old town and the railway station are both within walking distance (15 mins), there are loats of restaurants within easy reach.
The rooms are small but spotlessly cleaned every day.
I cannot praise the staff enough - they did their best to make us feel comfortable and helped with everything.

We had a great stay, thank you.
