Five Star Service in a Three Star Hotel Jul 06, 2010
When I am traveling, I am looking for a hotel that is clean, safe and reasonably priced. If the hotel is also helpful, this deserves a mention.
Located just three blocks from the Mediterranean Sea and a ten minute walk from both Nice's Old Town (Vieux Nice) and the train station, the Best Western Hotel Roosevelt is a find. Rooms are small, but efficient, and decorated in the rust and gold colors of Nice.
The hotel offers satellite television, in room refrigerators, free internet including a terminal in the lobby, and newly renovated bathrooms. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are modern and spotless.
A breakfast buffet is also offered, but is expensive at 12 euros. The buffet offers several options including cereals, cheeses, meats, breads, pancakes, yogurts and sausages. A lobby bar also serves drinks in the evening and I spent one evening watching the U.S. versus Ghana World Cup match, while discussing the game with the night manager.
What makes this hotel most memorable is the helpfulness of the staff. When I first checked in, my air conditioning was broken. As the hotel was sold out, the hotel loaned me their fan from the lobby. The next day, I was moved to a larger room with no additional charges and given a free breakfast that morning for the inconvenience. Everything in my room (including the food in my refrigerator) had been moved, which impressed me.
In the lobby, there is a "Children's Corner" with board games to play with children, along with a reading exchange area with books to borrow. Around the front desk is also a bulletin board which includes train times, bus times, tour times, airport transfers and maps. This information was extremely useful and I consulted it several times. Copies of the local English newspaper, The Riviera Times, are available for free.
The lobby also has a barrel of umbrellas to borrow on those rare days when it rains in Nice.
Tables in the hallways on each floor included free samples, such as bath gels from the Grasse perfumer, Fragonard. Nothing is free in Europe and I was shocked that this hotel was giving away samples.
Finally, on my last day, I asked the front desk where the nearest post office was, as I was planning to mail some postcards. The hotel insisted on walking my postcards to the post office themselves.
I would recommend this hotel to any visitors to Nice. While the location is very central, the staff are what make this hotel. They want their guests to enjoy Nice and have anticipated any possible question. The front desk is knowledgable and the information posted on the bulletin board was as helpful as any guidebook.
The Best Western Hotel Roosevelt is truly five star service in a three star hotel.
