“Cozy, comfortable and great use of space”
Reviewed 3 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We spent a week in the Porto Rosso apartment, and would absolutely stay again. It's a fairly small place, but laid out so well (with many creative storage solutions) that we never felt cramped.

We loved the location - far enough away from the main tourist areas, but close enough that we walked just about everywhere including the Cours Saleya market, the train station, contemporary art museum, and old town. The nearby Rue Bonaparte has everything you need: wines bars, restaurants, bakeries, butchers and fromageries. The Intermarché is a block or two away.

My one quibble about the apartment would be the kitchen. Not enough pots/pans and dull knives, which I know is common in vacation rentals. That said, I turned out a Thanksgiving dinner for 4 in it, although I designed the menu around the kitchen's shortcomings (only one small sauté pan, so used the oven, etc.) At least one more dish towel would be nice, and we had to go out and buy paper towels (but maybe this is an American thing ;-)) which we used for napkins as well.

Nice Pebbles was superb to work with - super flexible, accommodating and very responsive. We will rent again from them for sure.

“Something good and something not so god”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed in Porto Rosso for 10 nights in Sept 16. The apt is situated in the port area, with nice view of the port from the small balcony. The location is great for access to the tram and an easy walk both to the promenade and the old town.
The good things are: Very comfortable bed, nice small bathroom with a good shower and washing machine, very spacious and well equipped kitchen. Very nice and comfortable coach in living-room. Well working AC in bedroom and living-room.
The not so good things are: Very small living-room, just a coach, a chair and a small tv-set between the narrow walls.Opening up the doors to the small balcony helps! No coffee-table (maybe we miss this because we are used to that, not everyone are). Noise from traffic - much because of traffic-lights in the area.
All in all I liked this small place, and after staying there for 10 days I got used to the small living-room - but more and more annoyed by the noise from the motorcycles/scoonters!
Might come back :)

Management Response

Hello, thank you for taking time to review your stay at the Porto Rosso apartment.
It’s great to know that you found the apartment very comfortable and enjoyed exploring Nice from the Port.
We have passed your comments to the apartment owner about the coffee table – they are visiting in December and will look at the possibilities of adding one to the living space. They pass on their thanks to you for pointing this out.
Inevitably city living brings with it an element of traffic noise, which may or may not disturb our guests. We hope the great location for ease of exploring the area made up for this.
Our testimonials page for Porto Rosso actually mentions the traffic noise, which in our experience affects less than 10% of all guests.
We hope to welcome you back to Nice in the future. Our reservations team are reachable at: reservations@pebblesrentals.com and would be more than happy to suggest more peaceful locations for your next trip.
Kind regards,
The Nice Pebbles Team
