Appartamento perfetto come location, almeno per chi non ha problemi a farsi cinque piani di ripide scale. Per il resto vale quanto paghi, e cioè poco: peccato perché basterebbe poco per farla diventare carina... un po' di tinta, due arredi nuovi, due cuscini decenti e un po' di pulizia in più.
Caroline's apartment is in a fantastic location. The kitchen and bathroom are adequate and the bed is pretty good. Caroline's partner was waiting for us out the front which made our arrival very smooth. The photos give an accurate depiction and we loved how close we were to the beach. Thank you for hosting us!
Caroline was away during my check in; but her boyfriend was more than kind enough to get us into the apartment.
It's a cozy, little apartment with all the basic amenities one would need, considering we spent very little time in the house (only sleep, basically). The apartment itself is on the top floor (6th?), and it's an exercise going up, as there is no elevator to the apartment. Although, the descent to the ground floor does go by a lot quickly. The selling point is its location. It's very central to the major attractions of Nice: Promenade des Anglais, Vieux Nice, Nice Etoile, and many great little restaurants and shopping alleys.
Thanks for accommodating me and my girlfriend!
On a positive note... I enjoyed Nice immensely and saw much more of it because I simply didn't want to return to the apartment.
I overlooked prior reviews due to the apartment location.
If Caroline spent a tenth of her time attending to this filthy hovel as she does on bombarding the guest to leave it clean, suggestive check in/out times, myriad of instructions on its use.... Then I just might recommend due to the location.
The place needs to be condemned.
As for Caroline...rent it out cheaply permanently and remove from airbnb ...will distress immensely.
Liveable and the location is great. The place isn't luxury by any stretch of the imagination. It's basically a dorm room with an old futon as a bed, a table, a futon as a couch, a TV, and a basic kitchen. A bit run down looking to be honest. I didn't actually meet Caroline. I met her boyfriend. Don't remember his name but he let me in and showed me around. It's on the 5th or 6th floor and a walkup through a creepy hallway. Overall if you're looking for location and don't much care about the place- you just need a place to lay your head and check in as a home base this place is just what you need. If your looking for a place to enjoy as your vacation "home" for a few days, do some cooking, etc., I'd keep looking. Definitely not a "charming studio" but certainly a "charmingly located studio." Fit my needs just fine. It's hard to rate this place with stars as it fit my needs but at the same time I think it would leave much to be desired if you're needs are different.
The review left by James (who I think left the day I arrived) is the most accurate review of this place. Please read it to know exactly what you are letting yourself in for.
The location is ideal.
I think it is too expensive for what it is.
It's not cleaned very well.
The bathroom is grubby and VERY small, shower holder is broken so is hand held only.
No A/C so I left windows open with shutter shut and was bit by mozzys.
Host's boyfriend checked me in and was the perfect host.
All comunication with Caroline was pleasant and smoothe.
4/5 flights of stairs didn't bother me but creepy hall with no light at night did.
If I could be guaranteed it would be cleaned to a higher standard between visits I would stay again.
Avoid at all costs! Charged late arrival fee after train strike delay, see bottom of long description. Entry thru basement long tunnel and narrow stairs. Fine if you like adventure, else be in by dark...
Shower broken, owners clutter everywhere. Sheets unironed, towels old and stained.
We arrived late evening and caught the early train out at first light. Photos sent to airbnb for verification of above. Absolutly nothing charming about this place.
There is house rules, please read description before reservation. I am not oblige to come late for check in. You have to respect to the house rules. and it is not fair to write bad review because of 20 euros
We were greeted by Caroline's boyfriend. He was really nice, and though he spoke only a little English, we were able to figure everything out with limited vocab and a few hand gestures, as well as a quick phone call with Caroline. He even drove around with us to help find a decent parking place for our 2 days passing through. All communication with Caroline with very cordial.
- Perfect location. The beach is truly right across the street and we walked pretty much everywhere we wanted to go. Nice central base camp for exploring.
- Good price point and kind hosts.
- No air conditioning (which we didn't pick up on before arriving) made it very uncomfortable for us. Caroline said there was nothing she could do. It was, in fact, my fault for not noticing it being omitted in the amenities. We finally found a fan that help take some of the edge off, but any later into the summer and we would have left for another place. We stripped down all extra layers and luckily were not home much. Sleeping was on top of the sheets.
- Entering through the somewhat creepy basement, across to the back, and up multiple flights of stairs was a bit weird, but not a total deal breaker.
- The apartment furnishings and care were sub-par. Kind of like an inexpensive dorm room might be. We assumed no one would actually live there without making some changes.
- The bathroom was pretty dirty and using the toilet was tricky since the space is small enough that the sink hangs over the top of part of the toilet.
Location: 5 / 5

Take Away: If you're looking for a more affordable place right by the beach and ideal location, and don't mind a hand-me-down quality walk up apartment (4-5 flights) with no A/C, this could be a perfect value for you. Otherwise, maybe keep looking.
The accommodations aren't glamorous, but if you're looking for a cheap place to lay your head at night with a great location, this is a good option.
