Powered by AI

The Hôtel Apollinaire Nice garners appreciation for its attentive and friendly service, though a few guests encountered lapses. Its cleanliness and maintenance are often highlighted, with special nods to the pristine condition of both rooms and common areas. The spacious, well-furnished rooms are a hit, despite some noise concerns. Its prime location is a draw, offering easy access to attractions and the beach. While the amenities and charming atmosphere add to its appeal, the hotel is also considered a good value, despite the occasional mention of the area's higher costs.

Lovely stylish hotel in a quiet area. The staff were unfailingly helpful and polite. Our room was air conditioned, well decorated and we were not disturbed by any noise. The choice at breakfast was excellent. A very enjoyable stay.

An excellent hotel, in the best location! Very quiet and elegant area. Everything is perfectly functional and impeccably clean!
Nice Ville (train station) is a 15-minute walk away and the old city at 7 minutes. The main avenue with the great shopping area is at few minutes (also the Nicetoile - a mall and Galeries Lafayette).
Our twin room was large and equipped with everything you need, excellent air conditioning, large enough bathroom with a bathtub, the bed was very comfortable with very good quality linen.
The cleanliness is impeccable, the towels are changed daily, also the set of cosmetics (soap, shampoo, hair conditioner, shower gel and body lotion) is provided in a proper quantity avoiding their waste but without depriving yourself of the necessary. Anyway, if you ask, you will receive. A bottle of water is offered every day to each guest, even the tap water is drinkable and very good.
Breakfast is varied enough and very good, the coffee machine was great, with a lot of options! Thank Jerry (I hope I wrote correctly your name), for your promptness and smile!
All the people at the reception are very nice, always smiling and extremely kind and attentive, friendly and helpful. At request, they sent me an iron and ironing board. Everyone is very prompt and helpful, with professionalism and kindness. Specially thanks to Lorenzo and Edmir!
We warmly recommend this hotel !

The Hotel Apollinaire has a fantastic location in the centre of Nice. Less than 2 minute walk from the tram station. I highly recommend when arriving at Nice Airport, use the L2 Tram located out side the airport exit. At the time of writing only €1.5 Euro each get off at Durandy
Great, staff was really friendly and helpful and most speak good English, but they let me practice my French, gave them a big smile each day.
Breakfast “"le petit-déjeuner". Is a typical French breakfast and is very nice too. Try les croissants filled with scrambled eggs and a small bit of ketchup, taste sensation 😋
The area is flat, so walking around the friendly neighbourhood is a joy. Make your way through the park, pass the fountains into the old town. The weather was superb so plenty of outside eating.
The Claire Fontaine became out favourite. Great food every time, and awesome atmosphere, So French.
Come out the hotel and turn left, will take you to the high street with the main shopping area.
We found the Gare ( train station) and took the SNCF to Monaco Monte Carlo. Tickets only €8 return. Takes just over 35 minutes but worth it.
Use the bus tours and you will see the City
Highly recommend and will return one day

Hôtel Apollinaire Nice was great find! It's centrally located in Nice, so you're within close walking distance to the tram station, Vieux Nice (oldtown Nice), Colline du Chateau (Castle Hill), Promenade des Anglais, Avenue Jean Médecin (main shopping area), and other sites. The main train station is about .8 km (.5 mile) away, so you can visit neighboring cities, such as Monte Carlo and Menton. The hotel was very clean (the rooms were spotless with very comfy beds), the staff was very accommodating and it's located in a very safe area with access to many different restaurants. Plus, the room prices were very reasonable! Highly recommended!

The hotel was stunning. Everything about the stay felt 5 star. The staff on the reception were great and the room was amazing. The bathroom was lovely however the bathrooms could do with having the shower head that can hook onto the wall instead of having to hold the shower head (* idk if this is a European thing but I’ve never seen this anywhere else*).

The location is perfect it’s a 2 minute walk from a tram stop and a 5/10 minute walk from the beach and all the bars and restaurants.

One thing i did notice is the fire alarm was triggered at 6:15am which was an inconvenience after a great night sleep. This wasn’t too much of an issue however as somebody who sleeps with ear plugs i did struggle to hear the alarm from the corridor only as nothing sounded in the room which did make me think the rooms could benefit from having something VISUAL such as a flashing light when the alarm is triggered for people with hearing problems who could struggle to hear the alarm outside

But i would DEFINITELY stay here again

We had the most fabulous stay celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The room was amazing and we were delighted to be given an upgrade to our room. The buffet breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of choice that met every need or preference. The staff were wonderful, very welcoming and accommodating especially Lorenzo who recommended and booked a wonderful restaurant for us on our first night. Hotel Apollinaire Nice is in a great location, 2 minutes walk to the nearest tram stop, 15 minutes walk to the old town and the Promenade Des Anglais and also to the train station. And a 20 minute taxi from the airport. We would highly recommend and definitely stay again.

Our arrival to Hotel Apollinaire Nice was marred by the exorbitant 40E short, taxi ride from the Nice airport. Our plan to use the 1.5E tram was unexpectedly derailed by today's national holiday with no service.
This is an updated hotel in an upscale residential area on the perimeter of Old Town, walkable in 10 minutes. The room was smaller than I expected with a comfortable bed, modern furniture, clean, and view of the sea, but the water pressure was low, and there were no drawers. However, it came with a closable closet with removable hangars and safe. There are two lifts.
We did not include breakfast with our rate, but nearby La Nicoise Boulangerie's formula petite dejeuner of coffee, fresh-squeezed OJ, and chocolate croissant for 9.6E was delicious and enough to start the day. It opens at 7:00, although the hotel has a 24/7 coffee machine for guests. I peeked at their breakfast. At 21E, it looked well-worth it.
The surrounding neighborhood is safe with a Metro station Durandy 5 min away. There are many bourgeoise homes with a sprinkling of commercialism.
The staff was exceptionally helpful and courteous, especially Mila.
This hotel is absolutely recommendable.

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Apollinaire Nice. My room and bathroom were clean and large and I had a great view looking towards Colline du Chateau and Vieille Ville. The hotel is also in a great location - only about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk from Place Massena. It's also only about a block away from the Durandy stop on the tram line. The staff were also all kind and helpful, and they are all multilingual, so I could always communicate with someone.

Very nice and clean hotell. Short 5+ minute walk from downtown, shopping, restaurant and Nice old city. Friendly employees. Downsides, you need to fill up the water bottle in the room yourself after you drink it one time :).

I have recently just stayed at the hotel for 3 nights for a summer holiday. The hotel is in a perfect location, it is just around the corner from the nearest tram stop and a short walk to Old Town Nice as well as the beach. The staff are very friendly and attentive, the rooms are very clean and modern. The breakfast has a good spread and was delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I am sorry I didn't see your question until now. I visited the hotel in October and would not be able to tell you they can hire a mobility scooter for you. You would have to ask them directly. It appears the box to the right of my reply allows you to do this. Regards,

Can you tell me when starts the breakfast

I beleive it starts at 7 and runs to 10. This was one of the best parts of this hotel, the breakfast was very good for the price, expecially in France where breakfast tends to be expensive.

The courtyard is there and open. You can eat petit dejeuner in the courtyard, and in September it was very very pleasant. Highly reccommend taking the breakfast option - hotels tend to be the only place to get a sit down breakfast in France.
