About This Listing
Our beautiful studios are located directly on the beautiful and historical Garibaldi square in a typical building of Nice.
The entrance to the building is located between the terraces of Restaurant Café de Turin.
PARKING: There is no parking for this apartment.
You can find a place around the building.
Or go to the website "Parkego" about 15 euros per day. Thank you to say that you have an apartment to Salvatore.
The apartments are located on the edge of the old town along the Castle Hill, and are ideally located between down-town and the harbour.
The first extension of Old Nice northward, Place Garibaldi today is lined by elegant red façades with green shutters and vaulted porticoes, in which the Blue Penitents’ chapel, Chapelle du Saint-Sépulcre, is perfectly integrated. A statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi stands in the middle of this square that is central to the life of the city.
They are surrounded by coffee shops, shops and restaurants, and are at few minutes walking distance from the beach. Everything the seaside, the historical centre, the Castle Hill, the harbour, the main street and down-town have to offer is at your door!
The apartments have been renovated in January 2012 with quality materials and furniture. They are very fitted (see list below), bright, elegant, clean and have very high ceilings.
You will be welcomed on site by someone who speaks French, Italian, English and understands Spanish.
With the hope that our apartments will allow you to make the most of our beautiful city of Nice, we are looking forward seeing you!

We chose late check-in so we paid 20euro late check-in fee to Salvatore's cousin who came to hand over the key. His cousin was nice and welcome to us.
The location is really central but quiet, no noise at all. No deposit. It's better than the hotel I stayed 6 years ago in Nice, but there are still something need to be improved.
1. The room looks different from photos coz the room is not as bright as on the photos, actually it's pretty dark.
2. The hot water is not enough for 3 girls' shower. So for the first night, one of us suffered cold water during her shower and another girl had to wash her hair in the morning. I think we should be informed of this kind of problem before we moved in.
Son appartement est très bien situé. c'est un grande salle avec un balcon très confortable. Malgré il n'y a pas de décorations comme le photo. Mais l'appartement était très propre avec toutes les choses que nous avons besoin. Il y compris les fournitures de cuisine. Ma famille et moi avait une belle bon week-end. Je vous remercie!
Savatore was prompt in emailing and his cousin met us at the apartment for check in. He was able to help up with details for checking out and ride to the airport.
The place in Nice was central and simple yet a pleasure to stay in.
I very much enjoyed my change to live and experience the South of France!
My family and I had wonderful 5 days in Nice. We were greeted by Salvatore's cousin who was really friendly, showed us around and gave us suggestions on where to go from Place Garibaldi.
The location of apartment is perfect. The apartment itself is as described: newly renovated and fine for a short stay. It may be too small and dark at times, if you stay longer than a week.
The apartment is one room including a kitchen and a double bed, reachable via wooden ladder, and a sofa (bed) downstairs. We recommend this place for couples who want to be out all day and only need a place to do quick cooking and a good nights sleep. The small balcony is cute, but has a view to the backside of the house. If you like a nice view you should ask Salvatore if a room at the front side is available. From there you have a great view to Place Garibaldi.
WiFi was reliable and strong. We streamed some movies and music without problems, since there is only French Television available in the apartment.
There is everything you need in walking distance just outside the apartment: cafés, restaurants, supermarkets, bars and clubs. It is not loud, only the smell of garlic and fish sometimes creeps up in the evenings, since the famous 'Cafe de Turin' is on the ground floor. But really no big deal: It tempts one to dine and enjoy delicious fish more often.
If you only have a few days, we highly recommend you visit the port a few minutes down the hill to get a glimpse at a few super yachts. While you're there, try Anni's amazing crêpes at "Pass'Port". Definitely visit the ocean and rejuvenate with cappuccino, palm trees and free Wi-Fi at Sun Sea Blue.
Back in the apartment, we missed a few small helpful items in the kitchen, such ambient lights, a few professional knives, wiping towels, some soap or shower gel or more toilet paper. There is no hair dryer. There was an iron, but no ironing board. The coffee machine was definitely a plus, especially because it has a technology that doesn't need paper filters. We could have asked Salvatore for the missing items, since he was always very responsive, but we let it go and did not make a big deal out of it. We managed just fine and we are sure he will provide these add-ons soon.
Finally, we would like to mention our ride back to the airport. Since bus drivers were on strike, we took advantage of Salvatore's driver recommendation. This was a wonderful experience: Sylvain picked us up with a nice black limousine (we immediately felt like a VIPs :-) ), was very polite and agreeable (not like the usual grumpy taxi driver), helped us with luggage and made us a good price (same as taxi, but much better service) for the trip. Thank you again, Salvatore and Sylvain.
Best, Ken, Christine, Elena and Kenny
Das Studio ist ideal gelegen an der Place Garibaldi. Von dort aus erreicht man zu Fuss sehr einfach die meiste Sehenswürdigkeiten, andere Stadtteile. Das Hafengebiet, die Altstadt gleich "um die Ecke". Busverbindungen in viele Richtungen sind zu Fuss erreichbar.
Das Studio ist sehr basic, sauber, ruhig.
Die Kommunikation mit Salvatore bzw. seinem Freund der mich empfing war sehr unkompliziert, freundlich. Als ich einen Haartrockner brauchte wurde dies prompt gebracht, nochmals herzlichen dank dafür.
This was a comfortable apartment. We were welcomed by Salvatore's cousin, who showed us how everything works and gave us directions. Location is great: across from a supermarket, bordering old town and close to public transport. The apartment has everything you need: pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave, stove, etc.
The reservation was canceled 39 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
