    Uh.... Thinking... Still thinking... 200 hundred characters of thinking... Nope... Nothing!

    1. Taxi driver didn't know where it was. 2. Keypad entry required for the first door at street level. Someone came out and I went in, leaving behind my wife, thinking that the reception would be near. 3. As it turns out, the reception is at the end of a military basic training PT like course! Too many flights of stairs to get to a small bridge over a courtyard and discover that a few more stairs are required to get to an other keypad door. That door had a sign on it which stated something like this; "Sorry, my name is Didier and I'm the receptionist, I'm out of the office right now. Please call the following number if you need help". Yeah, well without a phone that number wasn't useful. I backtracked through the PT course of stairs and went elsewhere. Now I owe a cancellation fee? Sorry, but if they wanted my business they would have made it simpler to check in. This was a fiasco! 4. I don't recommend Hotel Rex to anyone! 5. We tried another hotel in Nice's pedestrian section and there the number of flights of stairs went up. So we decided to find an other solution. We ended at a very nice hotel on Rue Grimaldi, Hotel Mercure.

    location s great. In the center close to everything, and it's quiet at night although it's busy dining street outside. Staff are the best in helping and giving advice.

    Wifi is weak

    If you like shopping location was good..,, but that's about it!!!!!

    Dont even think about it!!!! There is nothing to like about this hotel itself!!! The owner is the rudest person I have ever met!!! Tge electricity doesn't work properly... More that likely you will be stranded for more than 3 hours with no power in your room after plugging in your phone charger or hair dryer... Then you will call the emergency no for help and get a response "only French no English, call tomorrow".... Tte drain In The bathroom stinks!!!! If you want stressful holidays go for it... But I wouldn't recommend!

    The staff were friendly and the location was perfect. Really close to everything. The room was clean and the beds were comfy. Great for a weekend away where you dont spend much time in the room.

    I think that this hotel is a bit too overpiced for what they offer. The location is great but where the hotel is isnt very pretty and it was quite noisey. I felt that the outside of the hotel was very run down and untidy. It is in the middle of a residential area when you walk up the stairs and the bedrooms dont have very good views/any views except buildings. Our room was quite noisy as it was next to reception and was very basic. The bathroom was very small and the shower easily flooded and wasnt great.

    Really great location, just in the Messena Square, 2 mins walk to tram station, 5-10 mins to the sea. And the room is very nice, clean, quite, and equiped well

    It is in 3rd floor with narrow, round stairs. You need to lift your luggage yourself. We lived in the very end of the corridor so the WIFI signal was really bad, we basically cann't connent in the room, have to go to the reception area.

    Excellent location in the very city centre, only steps away from restaurants, cafés, shopping, public transport and tourist attractions. Nice decor with a shabby chic style.

    - Pillows were flat and hard - Cleaning could have been more thorough in the bathroom - This was the second hotel room in France were the bathroom and toilet were separeated from the (rather small) bedroom only with a sliding door (i.e. wasn't possible to shut properly), which in itself wasn't much of a door, more like a wardrobe door. This doesn't allow any privacy. I don't understand why they have these doors. There was a coomon toilet in the end of the corridor, but it was rahter filthy.

    no bathroom but a shower in the bedroom. no private toilet. no staff in the evening, I could not check in. A note on the door indicating where I could find the room key, but the front door was locked.

    The building itself was lovely and the location was amazing, right in the centre of everything, yet quiet at night. Everything in the room was clean and is was decorated in a "shabby chic" old french style. The staff were also very friendly. I will definitely stay at hotel Rex again.

    Not huge negative points, but the staff weren't around much to to ask any questions. Ideally when sharing a room with several friends the toilet would have a robust (non see through!) door and no open window so you can wash and toilet in privacy!

    The location was amazing! Steps away from Place Massena and a few minutes walk from Old Nice. The staff was extremely welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Though in a busy square, the hotel is removed from the noisy streets and is very peaceful. The room was cute and comfortable, though quite small. For 2 of us it was a perfect place to stay!

    The only downside for us was that we came from Italy by car and there's no parking at the hotel. We had to find public parking and pay for the car overnight. It's not feasible if you're staying for any length of time.

    Great location to explore the old Nice. Lots of eating places nearby. Lovely staff.

    Bed was too hard. Inconsistent shower temperature. Can be noisy at night.

    Very good location, close to the beach, restaurants, shopping area. Nice hotel staff.

    Internet is not so okay for the room upstairs; for single bed room is kind of small.

    I only stayed one night and paid for a single room with no shower, but was given an upgraded room at no charge.

    The wifi signal was too weak to access the Internet.

    Good location, good for backpackers.

    The towels in the bathroom show its history as there are stains on it. The long stairs not suitable for people with heavy/large luggages.

    Hotel Rex was wonderfully located and easy to find once we left the station. The staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly for the duration of the holiday and we found our room to be a comfortable, nicely decorated place to spend our 3 nights.

    The Wi-Fi was a little unpredictable at times. Although having said that, we needed to contact a friend online and this did not affect us too much.

    This was a clean,friendly and comfortable place to stay. I don't hang out in my rooms when I travel so this was perfect for my trip in Nice. It is a great location and close to any thing you need or want.

    Well if you don't like climbing steps this may not be for you.Personally this was not a problem.

    Very personal styled hotel with a romantic touch in the pedestrian zone only 50 mrs away from Place Massena. Walking distance to the old city and to the Promenade des Anglais (5 minutes). The hotel is on the second floor of the backyard building so there is no noise at all from the city. Good value for expensive Nice. Nice for younger people. Don't park your car in the expensive public garage of Place Massena, you can find a spot at the street with a meter which is free at night.

    We arrived at 9 pm and found only by chance an information that there was no one at the reception and that we had to call the owner for getting in. The bathroom was really tiny and had no proper door so you hear everything from inside. Wifi not working in the room and not really well in the hotel entrance. The pedastrian zone at night in front of the hotel has no charme at all and the restaurants are way too expensive for what they offer. Half Pizza = 12 Euro. Beer 0,5 l = 7 Euro.

    It is a very nice french hotel, with good atmosphare and a nice staff,situated 25 M. from Massena Square in walking distance to many attractions in Nice.

    I left a shirt in the hotel when leaving. It's not an expensive but very meaningful stuff to me. I mailed the hotel that I will be in Paris several days after and it will be very appreciated if they can send it to me. I wasn't expected that the shirt will come back to me in the following trip again. However, when I finally arrived another hotel in Paris, the reception showed me the package he received. I was almost yelling out. What a wonderful service and what a lovely person of hotel Rex. They are really nice people!

    The location, it was perfect and even though it was in the heart of the action it was lovely and quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff who spoke really good English.

    There was nothing I didn't like.
