Jack was very accommodating. He was very proactive and responsive in his communications. He met our group in a main square to make it easy and walked us to the apartment providing us with great information the whole way.
The apartment was clean and comfortable with all the necessary amenities and added comforts. The location was perfect for experiencing Old Nice and being close to the trains and buses if you choose to explore further.
I would return if I have the chance.
The appartement is in a fantastic location in the middle of Old Nice and is very close to everything. Jack was extremely welcoming and helpfull, providing us with maps and bus schedule and telling us a lot about what to do and see in the city and surrounding area. It is very well priced and we would definately recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend some time in the Cote d'Azur.
Good location. Decently priced. Apt is dark and not very modern, but everything works. Jack is helpful and easy to deal and communicate with.
We had an easy check-in. Michael, the person who cleaned the apartment was there when we arrived. Jack came not long after. The direction from the station to the apartment was easy to follow. Jack made sure we had everything that we needed and gave us tips for places to eat and to visit. The apartment was clean and had basic supplies. The only drawback is it had a musty smell, maybe because it was a period building. We opened the windows when we were in the apartment, that seems to help but the noise from the street cleaners at night and a few loud kids hanging out on the street made us close the windows (good quality windows, they blocked the noise). The location was really great, closed to bus and tram stops and the beach.
Good location but way too noisy with the bar arguments and street noise. Early morning vendor setup was also too noisy. Place was not as clean as we expected ... linens were clean however the furnishings / furniture needed cleaning (felt lived in). Shower was too small. Good location in old town, close to beach but a tight fit for 5 people staying in this suite.
