As it is so central we knew that the would be some noise from the street, which we did experience. The from the owner and local representative is excellent.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The apartment is fantastically well situated a stone's throw from all the best restaurants, shops and amenities that Nice has to offer. The apartment has great views of the city on both sides. On one side you can see over to Mont Boron toward the Observatory and Monaco and on the other you can see the back of Place Massena. Even though you are right in the middle of Nice, the apartment is quiet and cosy with air conditioning, an entertainment centre, TV with Netflix and even a Nespresso machine. Everything you need for a city break in an attractively decorated space and welcoming ambience, cheaper and less impersonal than a hotel. We were met by Manu who showed us where everything was in the apartment and gave us recommendations where to eat and what to see in perfect English. We could also contact him if we had any problems which we didn't. We spent a lot of time exploring the Old Town, the Cours Saleya and the Port area, all of which were on our doorstep. A great short break in a fascinating city. We will be back soon. Our thanks to Paul for organising everything.
