City centre. Pedestrian area on Place Rossetti, next to Cours Saleya (flowers and antiques market). The heart of old city life beside the sea and the promenade des anglais.
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.
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.
"Unfortunately i havent got a chance to visit it, and my friend has visited this flat. as i know it was great"
"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."
