Well Presented and Central

We had three rooms and very helpfully the hotel arranged them all next to each other. The one for us adults had a balcony too with a great view of the City. Check in was stress free as the staff spoke good English.
Breakfast was excellent, nothing missing and could be eaten on the sun terrace which was nice. There was a tasteful bar area too. Situated close to the shopping area and about fifteen minutes walk from the beach we would n't hesitate to stay here again.

Good location for sea and city

The hotel is well situated for access to the main shopping street, sea and old town. The road outside is nosy so keep the windows shut - not a problem in April but maybe in summer. The breakfast is good, service is slow in the bar and the room was a little dated with a tiny bathroom. Would probably stay again because of the location. Was expecting traditional jazz because of the name but the modern jazz played in the bar is annoying

Perfect location

Satyed at the Ellington for a long weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary in mid march. Lovely hotel in a perfect location for everything. We had a double room which was spacious and the bathroom was quite large, only issue was the light in the bathroom was very dim. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room and you can ask for extra tea bags etc at reception. Free bottles of water in the fridge on the first day. Everywhere was clean and well looked after. Staff are all pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good, only a few hot items but lots of choice for continental and all very tasty. There is a small bar and beautiful courtyard. Hotel Ellington is only a few minute walk to either the new town or old town or the promenade so whatever you want to do, it is ideally located. We got on the train and spent a day in Monaco which was fun but drinks are very expensive (nearly had a heart attack when i realised my cocktail was 22 euro!). Train tickets are very reasonable, cost us 16 euros for 2 adults for return tickets.

Lovely Ellington hotel

Great location, really lovely staff. We got a great deal on booking.com. The room was very large with a separate toilet to the shower, which came in hand 😂. Would 100% stay here again. The only thing I would say is that they hold €150 for a deposit and release it when you leave, they said it would take 5 to 10 working days and it still wasn't in my account, luckily I'd asked the hotel to send me an email confirming the time and total that should be paid back to me, I went to monzo, sent them the email and they sent me the money straight way. Would recommend staying here. We had a great time

Nice hotel and location!

We were happy to be close to everything with a very helpful staff! The hotel was a great quiet place away from the hustle of Nice but a block from the main walkway and numerous shopping locations. The neighborhood was great and we found a close by place to do laundry!
