Our Nice holiday rental apartment is a short walk to Old Nice. There is much to do and see in the narrow streets of Old Nice which is like walking through a classical old Italian town. There are a great number of bars and restaurants in this area.

"Lovely flat,spoilt by uncomfortable and unuseable furniture."

This appartment was ideally situated for Nice.It was secure and well kept providing all the necessary amenities for an excellent stay .HOWEVER the interior of this flat was not exactly as advertised,some of the pub photos were of another one.The wi-fi provided was not strong enough to give Skype & video images,despite various visits to Orange stores.The basic provisions of equipment was OK,eg oven, washing machine,shower ,etc. BUT the kitchen utensils could only be described as very basic.The old furniture for seating was almost unuseable, as was the table! The decoration was not at the level of this sort of accommodation. Love Nice but never here again.

This guest clearly confuses the words "old" and "antique". Something can be old and of no intrinsic value and may never become an antique no matter how much time passes. In our apartment, the matching leather metal frame chairs either side of a well-designed natural wood TV/laptop work desk cabinet, are original 1950's Bruno chairs - expensive but not really designed to be used as regular relaxing chairs - they are firstly decorative and secondly functional. The two wicker/wooden low chairs either side of the coffee table are original 1930's Colonial chairs imported from India with expensive red leather cushions specially made for these chairs. If there is no difference between just "old items" and "worthwhile antiques", then this guest's somewhat uninformed opinion has washed away the worlds museums and antique shops with one breath. The kitchen is well equipped, and new pots and pans are regularly purchased following misuse of the items with over-cooked food-stuffs being removed with knives and forks, leaving the new items looking like 100 years old. The comment about cutlery and glasses is something I do not understand and therefore cannot comment on save to say I do not recognise the description. The internet key was the great disappointment to this guest who could not regularly Skype an adult son, saying it was too slow, but the key used at that time was explained to be used for e-mails and surfing the internet only and the couple did say they were using a new tablet which they did not fully understand, so who knows what was the cause. The comment that the interior was not reflective of the photos is entirely untrue and I can say nothing more because the interior is exactly the same as it ever was and the photos reflect the reality of the interior.
