“Home away from home in unbeatable location”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014
people found this review helpful

We were looking for an apartment in a quiet location, close to all the great amenities that Nice has to offer and with good transport links. The Clocktower certainly met these requirements and has the added bonus of a fabulous view over the rooftops of the old town towards the mountains beyond.

The owner, Jenny, was a pleasure to deal with from the start and always answered our email enquiries promptly, even though she was on the other side of the world at the time. She sent us lots of very useful information about transport, walks and places to visit as well as several pages of restaurant recommendations. It was great to have all this from a local’s perspective and, as a result, we visited lots of fantastic places that the guidebooks don't seem to know about.

We arrived at night and had a little trouble finding the apartment building as the bus route had been changed due to roadworks (Jenny had warned us that the bus stops tend to move around a bit!). However, once we found it, Janeth (who looks after the property when Jenny isn't there) was there to greet us and show us around. The apartment is a real 'home away from home' - tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. The kitchen area is quite compact but well-equipped (although no microwave). The bedroom is spacious and quiet and we had lots of room for our clothes. It was very warm some nights (mid September) but there is a fan in the bedroom. It was great to have the choice of bath or shower and everything was very clean and well maintained. The lounge balcony overlooks a cultural centre so there can be a little bit of noise during the day, for example singing, music lessons and children playing, but this didn't bother us and added to the 'Rear Window' feeling we got from sitting on the balcony!

It would be very hard to beat the location of this apartment. The old town is right on the doorstep and within a few minutes walk you can be at the port, the start of the walk up Castle Hill (fabulous views), Place Garibaldi (great for people watching during Happy Hour), the modern art museum, the Monoprix supermarket, the tram stop, or the bus stop for the 100 bus, which for just 1.5 euro takes you on a fabulous ride eastwards along the French Riviera to Monaco and Menton.

Many thanks. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the ever moving bus stops but the good news is, when the airport tram is operational, I am reliably informed by the info tram hut on Garibaldi it will stop at the bottom of our driveway. I have never owned a microwave :-) and hope the proximity and variety of local food sources made up for it.
