Central but very quiet, nice view, completely renovated.
Charming little two-room at the heart of gay quarter
A stone's throw from the Place Garibaldi and old town of Nice, and at the heart of the gay-friendly quarter.
Top floor two-room with a large and sunny balcony—perfect for breakfast or lunch—with a pretty view on the roofs of Nice and on the so-called Castle Hill.
Fully furnished with modern comfort: WIFI, air-conditioning and heating, Nespresso coffee machine, multifunction oven, induction cooking range, refrigerator, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.
The apartment sits at the top of a building (5 flights of stairs) and unfortunately, there is no elevator. But this means it is very quiet, since there are no neighbors above, and the view is very picturesque.
The tram (streetcar) stops right before the building and there are many gay bars, restaurants, sexclubs, shops and even supermarkets nearby.

Located between Place Garibaldi and Place du Pin, you will have the choice between the sunny terraces of Place Garibaldi with the quaint winding streets of the old town or the Place du Pin and Harbor neighborhood--gay friendly quarter--, where the Niçois and Niçoises tend to shy away from the touristic hoop-la in the summer.
From the airport, catch bus 98 and get off at "Segurane"--about € 5/one-way, 20-30 minutes, running from 5.30 AM till 11.30 PM.
From the train station, catch the streetcar and get off at Garibaldi.
In July-August, bookings are for a minimum of 4 nights.
For any stay shorter than 5 nights, bed-linen and bath towels are not included. I can provide some for you, for a € 20 extra (everything comes from the laundry) but the best is to bring your own.
Simon is a very kind guy who came round to pick us up from where we were stranded due to our misunderstanding. His flat is very (!) central but still quiet with a lovely balcony we had breakfast on in the sun. And it keeps you fit as the stairs are really exhausting ... :-)
Excellent host. Simon was really kind with us. And it is a really great place to be, near to everything. Easy to get there and easy to walk around. It definitely worth it! Thank you, Simon!
Had a fantastic stay at Simons apartment. Upon arriving I thought the stairs were a bit of a workout but it's all worth it for the view from the balcony. The apartment is nice and cost and has all modern amenities. There is no tv but who wants to watch television when they're on holiday,
Simon was a great host, extremely informative and always in constant correspondence with me before I arrived. He even had a few spare umbrellas which came in handy as I brought the English weather with me those few days.
The apartment is within close links to everywhere. Museums are literally walking distance. I recommend the bus route 100 from just off place garibaldi, it's 1,50 and it takes the most scenic 45minute route to Monaco (sit on the left side of bus and be camera ready) I also took the bus 200 bus to Cannes which isn't as scenic but has a beach. The tram is a good way to hop around and is also just outside Simons place.
I would definitely recommend Simons place to a single or couple looking for a cute place in Nice. I will definitely be staying there again if Simon would have me.
L'appartement de Simon est très agréable ; tout le confort est présent, la décoration est raffinée. L'appartement est également très calme avec une situation géographique idéale dans Nice. De plus, Simon est un hôte accueillant et prévenant.
Simon's place was just what we needed! Compact but really had everything we needed for the week, perfectly located, easy access by airport and tram, loved the view from the terrace. For the price you won't find anything better than this. Simon himself was a pleasure and super helpful, we would most definitely stay there again.
Emplacement idéal et appart très sympa,
Simon's apartment is great, right in the center of Nice close to everything we needed. Simon is also a very kind and friendly host made us feel right at home in his beautiful apartment!
Dans cet appartement idéalement situé, on se sent bien. La déco est très sympa. Un balcon nous permet de profiter d'une très belle vue. J'y passerai volontiers quelques jours à nouveau.
The flat was in a good location and very quiet, yet close to the Old town of Nice and in a pleasant area. The flat is well equipped and has all the amenities we needed. I would no hesitation in recommending the Flat and Simon as a host.
Footnote: My apologies to Simon we misunderstood that we had adopted to clean the flat before we left and unfortunately left it needing cleaning which understandably upset Simon and inconvenienced him.
Très bon contact. L'appartement est bien situé et agréable. Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas d’ascenseur. Simon est très agréable et disponible. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.
