About Lafayette

Lafayette is a small, friendly hotel in the heart of Nice; a seven minute walk from Plage Beau Rivage Beach.

All rooms are en-suite and have individually-controlled air conditioning; each also includes a microwave, mini fridge, safety deposit box and writing desk, and guests can opt for either 'standard' or 'spacious' rooms.

The hotel features free Wi-Fi, baggage storage, a lounge area with small library of books and tourist guides, an internet-ready computer for guest use and parking- bookable in advance.

A continental buffet breakfast is served every morning and there are dozens of restaurants nearby; Le Boudoir and Flaveur are two, highly regarded, options within a five-minute walk from the hotel.

Lafayette is ideally situated for exploring Nice: with the Old Town, Promenade des Anglais, the Acropolis Conference Centre and the bus and train stations within easy reach.

Positive Reviews

Excellent budget option.

Lafayette is not a luxury hotel, but neither does it claim to be. Rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable and, while the breakfast choice is not vast, you may eat as much as you wish for a set price. For most guests, the hotel provides excellent value for money.

Central location.

With the beach a short stroll away, the Old Town closer still, and a multitude of restaurants, cafes and bars within a few minutes walk, you will find yourself staying in a very central location at Lafayette.

Friendly front desk team.

For previous guests, what sets the hotel apart from its competitors are the team; with the front desk team praised most often. Reception staff are warm and friendly and always happy to suggest places to visit, drink or dine, store luggage or print maps.

Negative Reviews

Prepare for the climb.

With its location on the first floor, and no lift on the premises, some guests have been left struggling up two flights of stairs with heavy luggage and, while this may cause no issues for some, others will find this a near-impossible task.

Noise and light pollution.

The hotels central location does have one drawback: noise. Guests have complained of hearing passing traffic from rooms, with buses causing the most disturbance. Others have suggested that black-out blinds would be a good investment for the hotel.

Dated in places.

The hotel is, apparently, undergoing a gradual refurbishment programme and many previous guests will be glad to hear it. There is some suggestion that rooms, while perfectly functional, are beginning to show signs of wear and could do with a lick of paint.
