A warning against the studio/not as described
I chose Alessandra’s place at a time in Nice where almost everything was available at very low prices due to lack of tourists. On the day I checked in I came 5 minutes early ending up waiting 15 minutes outside for Alessandra and her husband on a quite cold morning. Once in the apartment it turned out the WIFI password consisted of a whopping 30 digits where most personal passwords are 6-10 digits. My laptop, like most modern laptops, could take a maximum of 24 digits, their WIFI provider had to be called, the issue took more than 2 hours to solve. After this it turned out their TV with the promised hundreds of foreign channels did not work, Alessandra’s husband tried to fix it and then could only find the French channels concluding in a quite dismissive way I just had to watch these, me for my part protesting as it’s obviously important, especially for people travelling alone to be able to watch TV in a language they understand. The couple soon left without even leaving the French channels to work. The apartment is smaller than on photos, the place is clean, but when entering the flat Alessandra’s husband used the toilet which was cleaned for my use and when they had left I had to clean the lady’s seat thoroughly which was disrespectful of me. When Alessandra’s husband carried up my suitcase to the flat I told him to wait and let me help him after bringing up my other stuff as he is an elderly man. He brought it up himself anyway in a quite brutal way, it now has some nasty dents in the handle. One of the curtains kept falling down, Alessandra accused me of having damaged it but the screws to keep it stuck to the window were clearly missing. The curtains do not block out any light. The promised ‘comfortable sofabed’ had been switched out with 2 children-sized beds (60 cm x 180 cm), the mattresses felt hard and of a quite cheap quality and I wonder if Alessandra and her husband would like to sleep on the beds themselves. I moved away after 1 night having paid almost 3 nights in advance at the agreed price, I asked Alessandra to refund me the money as the descriptions in the add were highly incorrect, she still refuses to. VRBO can do nothing about it other than to encourage to write a review describing the situation, Alessandra claims that VRBO ‘is agreeing with her’, however she claimed this even before VRBO was contacted at all. There is a name for keeping money that is not yours and for the above reasons I do not recommend this place or the hosts.
I take my right to reply to Brigitta's review,obviously written as a childish revenge because after all threatenings by email she didn’t get back advanced payment.I'm a respectful member of Homeaway Group since 2008 and 34 top reviews from previous guests speak for themselves(maybe that's why my place was chosen after all).Useless accusing her to be false,shameless and rude,something quite obvious to anyone reading but I want to comment some points to clear out misunderstandings during her staying.On check-in I was on time whereas she arrived 15 min before:it's reasonable next time she stays in hotel so to avoid waiting at the front door on a spring morning in Nice.I suppose she has problem with passwords as she copied/pasted same words on Mrs.MarLyndon review,nevertheless my wifi was working:I reccomend to learn how to whop 30 digits(it's easy to copy even a child is capable)and manage a modern laptop!INobody ever promised hundreds of foreign channels,I was suprised discovering they weren't clear,tried to fix the problem to help an evident tv addiction which brought her to leave in a hussle for unbearable disappointment of not being able to watch even french tv(which she doesn't undertand!)We stayed 2 hours(“issue took more than 2 hours”)or we soon left(“The couple soon left”)?Clearly confused about lack of time!Toilet was used once during 2 h we remained in order to HELP:I suppose she doesn’t clean lady’s seat at home if she finds it so disrepectful!(FYI gentelmens lift up the lady’s seat before using the toilet…it's called good education!).Her huge old suitcase was carried up the stairs to 4th floor not in “a brutal way”,I would suggest FOR FREE:considering it was heavier than herself,I wuold rather thank god instead of complaining for a cheap handle.Maybe VRBO has still old sofa bed pictures but I bought 3 years ago 2 NEW single size(french not USA)bedsteads+mattresses(can provide purchase receipt):I advise once again that if she doesn’t feel comfortable sleeping ALONE in a french double bed next time she puts herself on a diet!In conclusion,I can assure my add decriptions were correct(sheer courtains like in photos hanged and no one accused her of any damage for a missing screw,sq.mt. stated,TV was fixed in a day)and VRBO is still analysing the matter,BTW how can you say when I contacted them?Brigitta you have strange sureness and fantasy immagination...there's a name for people like you:for this reason I dont’ reccommend you as a guest to any host.

Very nice and lovely decorated studio perfect for the couple. Very lovely bathroom with good washing machine, nice and big main studio room. Studio is very well located - very close to the sea, in the heart of the touristic area. Close to the Monoprix store. Carrefour store is also not so far away even by steps. Location of the studio let you go by bus to the other cities very easy.
I give 5 of 5 and if I will have a chance to go Nice again, I will 100% choose this studio.

"The little studio is a very romantic and coquette place to spend the holiday with your special person. Is is very well equipped, better than in the owner's description. The location is great, in a very lively quartier, very close to beach. I fully recommend it! Thank you Madame M for the good tips and advices!"

"The appartment was clean and very nice close to all amenities: see city centre etc. Could be a bit noisy in the morning but overall an excellent place to stay."
