Location, Design, Comfort, Value
This boutique hotel was perfect for our needs: budget yet very stylish is what we always seek and this hotel had it all plus plus! Excellent location walking distance to the coast and main promenade. The room was was a lot for the money, kitchenette, separate living room and plenty of closets. The staff were so friendly with complimentary espresso and large refillable glass bottles for filling at the tap with still or sparkling water to take up to the room. The area was very nice and so convenient. Loved it!

Greatest place to stay in Nice
The Jay is absolute perfection. From the moment we walked thru the doors of this charming boutique hotel we felt so welcome. Lilliana was there to greet us with a huge smile and gave us so much good advice about the city and restaurants and everything we needed to know. All of the staff (every single person including the housekeepers) were beyond friendly. They all greeted kindly whenever we saw them. Alain, Eliza and Gael were so helpful and never minded taking the time to chat. And were there for anything we needed. The room was spotless. The beds were comfortable. It was very nice to have refillable water containers provided for the room. Each room had a little kitchenette if you needed to make food in the room. They had both elevator and stairs. Also a lovely breakfast area where you could sit and enjoy a drink in the evening if you wanted. Great location. About an 8 minute stroll to the Alsace-Lorraine train station from the airport which only cost €1.50. Once in Nice you can take the train or buses to all of the nearby towns. The hotel staff can provide all the details. We will definitely be back to The Jay.

10/10 Exceptional

We had a wonderful stay at The Jay. The room was very clean and comfortable and decorated in an individual style which we liked. Lovely, large, comfortable bed. Great breakfast. All the staff we encountered were extremely courteous, friendly, helpful and professional. We were always greeted by a smile when entering/leaving and everyone was approachable and ready to help with any queries. The location was spot on - very central yet quiet and only a stone's throw from a supermarket (we liked that the room had a kitchenette - the fridge was particularly welcome!) and a short walk into town/the beach/Promenade des Anglais. We loved our stay at The Jay - thank you to all of you for making us so welcome - and we look forward to returning. Would wholeheartedly recommend if you want somewhere comfortable, personal and convenient.

The staff at the Jay were very helpful and friendly. They made my first few days in France perfect. I had even forgotten an adapter for US plugs and Liilian was quick to share one of theirs. Highly recommend this hotel!
