I had a very nice stay in the studette. My host was very flexible and helpful, even when I arrived a day later than planned. Any problems I experienced (a blown fuse) I had been warned about, so they were not really problems! There is no internet, but the bath, small kitchen set, and great location are definite bonuses.

We were greeted by Magraner at the apartment, he was really nice, and though he spoke good English. All communication with Magraner was very cordial.
Pro's: - Perfect location. The beach is truly right around the corner, down the street and we walked pretty much everywhere we wanted to go. Nice central base camp for exploring.
- Good price point and kind host.
Con's: - Limited air conditioning (due to the fact you can only have a couple of appliances on in the apartment or the fuse blows) made it very uncomfortable for us. Magraner warned us about it and said he is getting someone to look into it. We stripped down all extra layers and luckily were not home much. Sleeping was on top of the sheets.
- The plumbing was also a problem for us. The drains were blocked which meant that every time you brushed your teeth in the sink, or washed dishes in the basin, the bath would fill up through the plug hole. We had two days without use of the shower while a plumber was organised. Magraner then reimbursed us for two nights accommodation to make up for the inconvenience.
-Entering through an always unlocked front door and up multiple flights of stairs was 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 bath was pretty dirty and using the toilet was tricky since it's a shared one down the corridor, the space is really dark after the sun goes down, so you need to take the torch.

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 a shared bathroom, this could be a perfect value for you. Otherwise, maybe keep looking.
The apartment is located very conveniently - In the center of Nice, a 20-minute bus ride from the airport, 2 minutes walk to the promenade and the beach, near bus stops, train station and supermarkets, Tourist Information Centre. Need to climb to the sixth floor. The apartment has everything you need: refrigerator, stove, bath, table, clothes hanger, quite roomy bed, towels, bed linen. All true, as described in the ad, do not worry. Marco was kind enough to meet us, explained where the old town, where the bus stops to Cannes and Monaco, it was very nice to talk with him. We loved visiting with Marco. Thank you Marco for a lovely holiday!
A trip to French Riviera is always amazing! This time I've had a great experience having stayed at a modern clean apartment in the heart of Nice with Magraner's apartment.
To start with I have to say there are more benefits than drawbacks. First of all location is truly amazing, however if you're travelling with heavy luggage it could become a trouble as there is no elevator in the building.
Apartment is quite small, I think the best is to rent it for just one person, however my mom and I managed to stay there together and it was completely ok.
The apartment is clean and equipped with a bath, cooker, there are dishes, glasses, cups and plates so cooking was not a problem. The WC is out of the flat but it was well-cleaned.
It was a bit hot in the evening as the apartment is located on the last floor just under the roof, there is a fan to make the air cooler though.
The street is quite pieceful, there is a supermarket just a few minutes walk down the street. There are a few lovely bars downstairs.
Public transport opportunities are ok - walking distance to the nearest bus stop and about 10 minutes walk to the centre square of the city - Massena, where you can take a city tram, which runs every 5-10 min and costs €1,5 one way.
The walk to the beach takes around 10 minutes which is quite close. Remember, the beach service is not free - most of the beaches are well-equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas, so be ready to pay extra for high-quality service. Other beaches are free of charge.
WiFi connection was a bit too low but Magraner informed me prior.
All in all it's a cool place if you are traveling on a low budget & want to enjoy all the benefits of staying in the downtown.
I think I'll come back to Magraner again next spring!
Marco was zelf niet aanwezig in Nice maar had een vriendin geregeld welke ons welkom heette en de sleutels overhandigde. Het contact met Marco verliep langzaam van te voren maar we kregen wel antwoord op onze vragen. Communicatie tijdens ons verblijf is er eigenlijk niet geweest.
We hebben voor deze studio gekozen om de locatie en die is perfect.
Dit maakte ook dat we er alleen sliepen en ontbeten (wat niet aanwezig was, maar genoeg supermarktje in de buurt). Je moet er wel tegen kunnen om intensief bij elkaar in de buurt te zijn want de ruimte is bijzonder klein, warm etc. Dus je hebt geen privacy (als de één in bad ligt, kan de ander niks anders dan op bed even een boekje lezen oid. want staan is ook praktisch onmogelijk).
Positief is dus absoluut de locatie en het idee van de studio is wel idyllisch. Echter moet je wel dagelijks 116 treden naar boven/beneden lopen, vieren de kakkerlakjes feest in het keukenkastje, was het niet echt schoon toen we eraan kwamen en sliep het bed voor geen meter (dunne kussens, korte lengte). Wel was er gelukkig een airco aanwezig!! En hebben we een pakje hygiënische schoonmaakdoekjes gekocht om dagelijks de wc schoon te maken, het bad, de keuken ed. En daar hebben we ons prima mee gered. Alles werkte goed, de waterkoker, de koelkast, de airco, alleen niet tegelijkertijd. Dan valt de stroom uit en moet je deze meerdere keren resetten. Ook is spaarzaamheid met het warme water zeker aan te raden als je nog lekker in het bad wilt zitten en hadden we één handdoek p/p voor een hele week.
Accueil très sympathique.
La chambre est idéalement placée, au cœur de Nice.
We with my girlfriend have been staying here during one week for Monaco Grand Prix. It was amazing! Location is perfect: 20 min to Monaco by tram. Near apartment there is an beautiful cafe with the best croissants, coffee and orange juice. For the next street there is a big supermarket. 10 min to Central Park. As to apartment: a room quite good for two people, small but comfortable.There are all necessary things. Place for sleeping looks like a little cave))) good. Bedclothes was fresh and clean. The toilet is on the floor. Private and clean too. What about drawbacks:
First morning we met by cockroach in a glass. On our floor there was no light in the corridor, so every evening we had to use mobile phone like flashlight. Internet is PUBLIC!!!! So there was no signal. It just did not get to the fifth floor. As I said, there was a beautiful cafe at the corner with Wi-Fi))) As for me, room can be made more cozier: add some pictures, to lay a carpet, more lights etc.
In general it is the best offer for these price and location. I think I could recommend it.
Nice,small appartment in the middle of Nice.Perfect location.Good price.Just the internet was slow.Thank You Marco for the graet stay.We spend graet time in Nice;)
Cool and sympa, him as well as his girl friend. The room they left was clean as when they come. And thax for the note on the whiteboard :)
