My husband and I spent a month here from early January through early February, 2015.
It was as described – charming, quiet, close to the beach and shopping (lots of good food everywhere). We found the WiFi worked fine for us – uploaded pics every night. The bed was comfortably firm. The stairs ARE steep if you have mobility issues. There was toilet paper there when we arrived, but be aware… From our experience, you should ALWAYS carry your own when travelling.
The balcony was a bit small, but quite usable. Unfortunately for us, it was too chilly to use much of the time, but we did enjoy it when we could. We were a bit intimidated by the gas stove/oven, so did not use it at all.
We needed Laurent on two occasions for minor issues (TV cable and light bulbs). He was always there promptly to deal with it, cheerful and affable. His English is only marginally better than my hubby’s French, but we stumbled through. If you are weak in French, we’d strongly advise a decent translation program, and communicate by email. That’s what we did.

Although Laurent didn't respond to my email in advance of our arrival - he was warm and welcoming when we got there. He was expecting us and it was easy enough just to ring him when we got to the old town and get directions over the phone.
Locality is just perfect for a visit to Nice. In a great position in old town, just 2 minutes from the Cours Saleya - markets, restaurants and shops. Also very close to the Promenade des Anglais - 2-3 minutes on foot.
The flat is very cosy and comfortable.
The only issues were that the wifi password did not work, but we weren't particularly bothered so we didnt get back to Laurent to check it again. The electric oven didnt work either although there was a micro/grill which was sufficient. It would have been better if this had been explained to us as we had a bit of hassle trying to work out what was wrong with the oven before we noticed the bare wire with no plug!
Towels and bedding all provided. Both beds were very comfortable. Bathroom very small but good shower and nice clean towels.
The little balcony off the kitchen was a lovely place to sit for breakfast/evening drink - in earshot of the waterfall up the hill.
Laurent was amazing! The flat is perfect size for a couple or a small family. The location was the best part! Very close to beach, parking and market!
If you are looking for an autentic and cozy apartment, Laurent's apartment won't disappoint you.
It is situated in a beautiful and quite side street of the old town, but it is still very close to restaurants, shops, markets and of course the sea.
Said in one word: you definitely will get the "Nice-experience" at its fullest.
Laurent was a perfect host, very helpful, kind and fast on responding.
The apartment is very clean, it has a lot of storage, the kitchen is fully equipted and the balcony was great. We can definitely recommend Laurent's apartment.
The flat is located at the best part of the old town, that is, not too close to the animated area but closer to the castle hill; very quiet through the night even with all the windows wide open, yet the beach is not far, just within 5 minutes walk.
Well equipped kitchen and clean rooms through and through.
Small balcony is an ideal place to have breakfast.
Our stay at Laurent's place was great. He greeted us on time and left us with the key and gave us a quick tour of the apartment. He ordered us a taxi when we left. It is a very quiet place in a very touristy part of Nice. Great host . Laurent was responsive to text message as well and he was very welcoming. Great host. Great apartment. Highly recommend.
Our stay at Laurent's place was great. He greeted us on time and left us with the key and gave us a quick tour of the apartment. It is a very quiet place in a very touristy part of Nice (Old Nice). Great internet access, TV, great bedroom, A/C, and so close to the beach!! Laurent was responsive to text message as well and he was very welcoming. Would recommend to anyone.
