We booked a standard room, which was on the west end of the hotel. We did still have a partial bay view from our balcony, which was lovely. However the western exposure of the balcony, as well as the bathroom, made for a very warm room, even with the air conditioning set to a cool temperature. It was warm even at night, so perhaps the air conditioning system is just a bit weak. I would recommend avoiding the west end rooms, and if we are lucky enough to return I would definitely spend a bit more for an upgrade to a room with a different orientation. Still enjoyed this hotel immensely!
As noted here by just about everyone, the staff at this hotel could not be friendlier or more helpful. In spite of the never-ending stream of guests, the front desk staff spoke to us by name every time we passed. Our room was impeccably clean and comfortable, though small. However, it was one of the standard rooms, and who spends time in their room when visiting the Cote d'Azur anyway? Perfect location; gracious staff; sparkling clean rooms!
