    Lovely hotel, good location!

    It was a lovely hotel in a good location. The reception/ front office lady was very unfriendly and unhelpful though which spoilt the whole experience.

    What I like: a very convenient location. The hotel is located in a very close proximity to the beach and other shopping facilities. What I did not like: I saw some cockroaches in the room. The most embarrassment was that the housekeeper was cleaning her nose just over the breakfast buffet where the bread, cookies and croissants were served. Despite having enormously high rate of covid cases in the country, she was not compliant with the basic hygiene rules. I have informed the receptionist at the front desk about the incident.

    The room was up to date, very cute, but on the small side- France:/ The small kitchenette was very convenient, with shops within a block. The location is great as well we were able to walk most places. The sea, old nice and a ton of restaurants are so close!

  • 6.0.Good

    I truly appreciated that we were allowed early check in. However, i had emailed to confirm we had room with twin beds and was told we did. Infact, we had twin beds pushed together on bed frame with one blacket so could not be seperated. We did have a sofa bed but this was was not as booked or confirmed. Asked to change rooms and was told fully booked. Further, the gentleman on reception on our last nights stay was rude and unhelpful. Our train was cancelled due to strike the next day. When we asked him for help, he acted as if this was not a big deal. Would only communicate with us in French. When 2 girls came down moments later, he was very helpful with them and suddenly fluent in English. This upset us as we werent sure how to proceed with our abrupt change in plans. This influenced how we felt about our stay significantly.

    I highly recommend the Jay Hotel by HappyCulture to any potential customer. It is conveniently located in the heart of the city of Nice. Rooms are clean and modern. Beds are comfortable. Staff is helpful. And breakfast is delicious. The only minor problem was the lack of communication among staff members.
