“Lovely sunny apartment in good location”
The apartment is spacious and well equipped. View from balcony is brilliant. We would have loved to have stayed longer. Roni was very helpful and friendly. Thank you. It takes about 20 mins to walk to the town. I would suggest walking along the Rue de France, as more shady and lots of interesting shops and restaurants.
Owner's reply: Hi Margaret, It was a pleasure to have you stay and you're welcome back anytime, Enjoy the rest of your summer, Roni
The best way that I can describe our satisfaction with the "San Diego" apartment is that my wife and I have stayed there 3 times and have already made a reservation to return next year. We have stayed in 3 other apartments in Nice, and this apartment is by far the best of the lot. First of all, the view from the living room, dining room and the kitchen area is directly onto the Promenade and the Mediterranean. For any early risers, you can enjoy the sunrise directly over the sea. Unlike the majority of apartments along the Promenade which can be quite narrow and almost tunnel-like, this apartment has double wide living area and a balcony furnished with lovely furniture. It is wonderful to soak up the ambiance of the Riviera on the balcony. while having a drink or even a light meal. Yes, there is traffic along the Promenade, but the double pane windows allow for a quiet apartment. All the appliances are first rate. The furniture is quite comfortable and more like the furnishings in a home with nice art work than in a rental unit. There are 2 decent sized bedrooms with excellent mattresses. The bathroom and the shower room allow our guests to have their own facilities. While the shower room is compact, it includes a toilet and sink as well as a great shower. To get to the center of town requires a 20 minute walk along the Promenade which is quite pleasant. For anyone who prefers not to walk, there are buses that run on the Promenade and on the rue de France directly behind the building. The frequent buses will take you anywhere in Nice for a mere 1 euro when you buy a 10 trip ticket. (We prefer to walk so that we have less guilt when eating all the delicious Provencal cuisine that is available). The area has nearby supermarkets and bakeries and almost any other type of shop. There is now a fairly large 'mini supermarket' almost directly behind the building. The owner clearly is interested in pleasing his guests, so there are constant improvements and additions to the apartment. All the shutters and the awning are now automated; the apartment has been freshly painted; closet space has been added to the second bedroom; and the mattresses have been replaced. The local contact, Roni, has been 100% reliable and couldn't be nicer to deal with. All in all, it is an excellent find.
“A lot of almosts”
Stayed at the San Diego last May primarily for the Monaco Grand Prix, but also to see more of Nice as we had been there for only one day on a cruise a few years ago. This apartment is somewhat difficult to review as it was almost exactly what we (my wife and I were traveling with another couple) were after--it's not easy to find 2 bedrooms with two full baths, not just a WC-- but a few annoying issues made it fall short. First off, it's quite roomy, with a large foyer and closets upon entry, the bedrooms to the left and the living area/kitchen to the right. What steals the show, of course, is the wall of windows/French doors opening onto the sea, and the living/dining/kitchen areas are brightly lit, well furnished and comfortable (must note here also that this area is also brightly lit in the dead of night as there's a streetlight right outside at balcony level). The kitchen was a nice functional workspace with modern appliances and pleasant lighting, the cabinets well stocked with staples. The only maddening thing was the lack of a way to make decent coffee--the actual coffee maker didn't work and the strainer on the French press was coming loose, rendering any cup made in it "chunky style". We had to resort to instant. The balcony was a most pleasant place, with comfortable furnishings including a large table, and of course that fabulous sea view. The downside here was the traffic noise, which being right on the very busy Promenade des Anglais and on the second floor was quite loud at almost all times--the uncountable small scooters sounded like leaf blowers right next to your ear. Shutting the balcony doors did a very good job of cutting the noise, however. The beds and bedrooms were quite comfortable and air-conditioned so windows didn't have to be left open, and being in the back of the building on a service/garage space were significantly quieter anyway. Storage was rather awkward--no drawers, but shelf and hanging space in the master, drawers but no hanging space in the second--but reasonably sufficient. The hallway bathroom (serving the second bedroom) was a fairly typical 3 piece and a useful size, but the ensuite in the master was a cruel joke. It was one room containing a wet shower (i.e., no curtain or anything separating it from the rest of the room so the sink and toilet got wet), a sink about the size of a shot glass with no place to store anything--which I suppose was all to the good considering it would have gotten wet anyway--and a toilet which faced the sink and provided all of about 6 inches of legroom as a result, requiring any serious business to all be done in the hallway bath and therefore imposing on our friends' space. The neighborhood was pleasant and access to necessities was not bad, but it is several blocks from the heart of town and the bulk of the restaurants/attractions. As to the 180 euro cleaning/greeting fee, although we did know about it in advance it's a lot of cash to have to bring with you for that purpose, and I see no reason it couldn't have been included in the rent. Overall this apartment was a nice enough place to be, and with the addition of a functional coffee maker and reconfiguration of the ensuite the rating would go up at least one star.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your feedback and it sounds like you overall enjoyed your stay. I am so sorry to hear that you had to resort to instant coffee especially when I had left some nice coffee from the local coffee shop in the old town. I wish I had known during your stay as I would've replaced the French press. It's important to us that all guests to enjoy their stay in our home and these little things mean a lot - especially that cup of morning coffee to start your day. I hope that we can entice you back as we have made some improvements throughout. The apartment has had a complete repaint and freshen up including the ensuite which also has has an extractor fan fitted. The second bedroom has its own wardrobe with plenty of hanging space. The main bedroom has a new bed with high quality mattress for the perfect nights sleep and new headboard. A new electric shutter has been fitted to fall in line with the rest of the apartment. And of course a new french press/ сafetière............
“Lovely apartment with a great seafront position and balcony view”
We were a party of two couples, and we think we chose well as this apartment is spacious and light and made for a comfortable few days exploring the lovely city of Nice and beyond. The climate was mild enough for short sleeves, so the early season timing was also OK and meant that the rental price was still reasonable. We even managed some sea-swims, though most promenaders were doubtless thinking we were mad! The beds and pillows were comfortable, and the bedrooms quiet as they were at the rear of the block overlooking a yard and parking area. The best vistas are definitely to be had from the living room and large balcony - which is as it should be. One bedroom, the twin, has an electric shutter, but no wardrobe in the room which was an issue as the only real clothes storage was located in the entrance hall and therefore not overly private for dressing. Also, this is not an en-suite so bear this in mind depending on your party's circumstances and preferences. The double ensuite room, however, has a wardrobe as well as private washing facilities The kitchen is fairly well equipped, although we ate out most of the time and only used it for snacks and take-away eating. Vera, who met us and saw us in, was delightful, welcoming and most helpful throughout our stay. We arrived with an element of concern as we had only recently spotted a massive surcharge of €180 over and above the advertised rental rate which, over a 3 day stay, made a big and unexpected difference to the overall cost. This is meant to cover linen, cleaning and a welcome pack comprising a bottle, etc, but (having run holiday lets ourselves) this is still a large sum, and it needed at least two clicks to find the surcharge on the Trip Advisor site through which we booked. That said, Vera was very open-minded and accommodating to our concerns, but we suggest you ensure you have identified all compulsory charges well in advance of booking. We also feel that TripAdvisor should be more transparent in how rentals are represented, particularly when they are non-discretionary. Another recommendation, if you are planning to arrive by taxi from the airport, is to use a prepaid voucher system, such as Viajes Alameda/Shuttledirect. There are several stories about unexpected surcharges (a theme emerging!) and this was not only better value than a random airport car, but much easier and totally transparent - less stress all round. Overall, a very good apartment which we would thoroughly recommend, for a relaxing holiday in a wonderful city! Overall
“AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFE TIME”
This second floor southern exposure condo situated directly on the Promenade in the San Diego building has a modern spacious open concept kitchen living area with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a washing machine, fridge, stove, oven and dishwasher & microwave. The comfortable furniture on the large balcony with the splendid sunrise and sunset over the Mediterranean Sea made our 2014 three months winter stay a true pleasure to be forever cherished. We highly recommend this home away from home to anyone! HARRY & CECILE from Canada!
Owner's reply: Thank you Harry & Cecile for your lovely words, It was such a pleasure to meet with you and have you stay. I'm delighted that you had a wonderful time and hopefully made many cherished memories.
