    We choosed rotonda room. Rooms are very small, but, I'm not interesting to spend the time in a hotel, and that's why it's not disturb me. The wiev from rotonda's window is wonderful- gardens and fountains, but in the evening, when fountains start to light... And sound- not like in a city, but near by waterfall. Amaizing. Location- great, all is at hand- seaside, old city, center, shopping, bus station, car rental, and till train station ~ 15 min. Thanks!

    There are no shampoo. It was a little uncomfortable, because we travel just with handluggage. It means- we can't take with us liquids in airplans. But it is non-essential.

  • Group of friends

    Excellent location, in the very center, 3 mins to the beach, 3 mins from the historical center and Messana fountain, price worths this location. Staff is very very nice.

    Very low quality - budget hotel, room is really small, not clean enough, no hairdryer, but it was ok, because we spent there just couple of hours for sleep.

    It is a cheap hotel in an excellent location. Approximately about 10 minutes to the sea, near the main square and old town. Just a few steps to the bus station to Airport, Monaco, Cannes....

    poor french breakfast

    The staff were wonderful: pleasant, helpful, accomodating and friendly. We had the corner "Rotunda" room and it was delightful; fantastic view, comfortable bed and small but clean bathroom. The old fashioned lift worked perfectly. Excellent location for exploring Nice. I'd highly recommend it to others.

    Super good location, my room (48) has nice view. Staff are friendly.

  • Couple
    5.4

    Pleasant & very polite staff. Good location

    Staff over explaining obvious things. Breakfast limited to juice, coffee, bread, croissant and jam; a buffet offering more choice would leave a better impression. Rooms are old and small. Booked double room for a young couple, got twin beds...

  • Group of friends
    4.2

    Hotel location is very close to the beach, approximately 5 minute walk. Shops are near by including the main shopping strip and Galaries Lafayette which is all within 5 minutes. If you have a car, parking is relatively easy with spots on the street and around where the hotel is located. Tram stop is also about 2 minutes away if needed. There is an elevator in the hotel for baggage which is helpful if your room is on level 5.

    Wi-fi is available only in the hotel lobby and not in the rooms, when booking this hotel it was not clear that wifi would not be available in the rooms. Hotel staff are not friendly, more specifically the short blonde hair woman at the front desk who works during the day. She is incredibly rude, regardless of being able to speak fluent French. Considering that the price for the rooms is not exacty "budget", she makes the stay less enjoyable and brings the hotel down. There is no air conditioning in the rooms, which in summer will be incredibly uncomfortable. While we were there in June it was hot and there is no air circulation in the rooms. I think for the price you can get a better hotel with more value for money.

    Location is very good. Park and veux nice is very close. so I walked there easily.

    Bed, Elevator is very old. Smell was terrible.

    Nice location, the room has the basics

    Not that clean, a little bit small and old

  • Group of friends
    4.6

    The only good part of Hotel Acanthe is the location which is right in the heart of Old Town.

    The rooms and bathrooms are small, dingy and have no AC. The staff is rude and seemed annoyed to help guests or resolve problems. Also, the option to add an extra bed, offered on the website for an additional 9 euro per night, is useless. The rooms are so small that extra beds dont fit, but they never told us this, so we got stuck in a room with 3 beds and 4 people. They still charged me for the extra bed even though we didnt end up getting one, and also tried to charge me for an extra night which I never booked or stayed.

    The only shaining point is the location. It's close to the bus station and not far from the train station.

    The bathroom is too small and water collects on the floor after hiting bath.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Location was good

    The Bathroom was pathetic, i could not even turn around, and if i did my body would scratch the walls. It was a horribly small. Smaller than an aeroplane toilet and imagine, both, toilet and bathing area in that small area. I am unable to figure out weather i used to get clean on taking a bath or i used to get more dirty.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    The room is small for 3 people but it's ok with that price. The only thing i don't like about Acanthe is that my friends were attacked by bugs, many red spots appeared on their skin and it itched.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    it was central and that was the only good thing about it

    It should not have been called a hotel in the first place ,even a hostel would be a lot better than it. The carpet was dirty looking as were the walls. first impressions not good at all. It is a joke calling it a hotel,it had no bar,not even a snack bar, a lift that was ancient. Our bedroom was tiny and a so called shower /toilet built into a corner in the room. It was so small you could not dry yourself when you got out of the shower as there was no room to turn in it. the wardrobe was like a tall box next to this makeshift toilet. We were very disappointed with this place as I thought you would have checked out these places first. We will be a lot more careful on our next trip. Please check this place out!!!

    the location is super. rooms are small, but if you just go there for sleeping it's perfect.

    nothing unpleasant
