The Carlton it is not, but if you need a stylish, comfortable, and spotlessly clean room while in Nice, the Hotel Rex is an outstanding value. Ideally located just steps from the recently renovated Place Massena, this tiny, 2nd floor hotel is a delight. The beach and old town are a quick five minute walk away, Internet hook-up is available by the front desk, and the owners are very nice (they’ll be happy to make restaurant suggestions and even call in a reservation if needed).
Caveat: You have to walk through a front building and up several flights of stairs to get to the Rex, so beware if you’re carrying a lot of luggage.
Rooms from 40 Euros per night.
