The staff is really good. Clean good! Location is good. Low floor is the better option for elevator but the staff makes up for all to sweet.

Ended up staying at Villa Otero after our original hotel booking cancelled on us which was hotel Yelo. After walking passed Yelo on our way to dinner, I can safely say things worked out for the best. Although the hotel is quite small, it's nicely presented and the staff are friendly. The rooms are also quite small but the bed was ridiculously comfortable. We stayed for 5 nights as we were in Nice the Monaco Grand Prix weekend and for this the hotel was good. It's a short walk to the train station where you can get to Monaco in about 25 minutes. It's also a short (just over mile) walk to the promenade/beach. The only negatives I would have to say about this hotel was the room we stayed in was quite dark and didn't get much natural light. Also, the walls are quite thin so you can hear a lot of noise from upstairs/downstairs/left and right. This wasn't a problem for me as I wear ear plugs but my partner struggled to sleep as a result. For the price, I would recommend staying here.

Hotel owes me money
The room was not clean enough when we received it, there was dust all over the place specially under the bed, not clean enough for my cat and when we walked around the room our feet got dirty. They have not taken the previous trash out so there was trash from the previous guest. There was a bad smell coming from the bathroom, however from the second day it got better. They cleaned the room in the second day. We went to have a breakfast on the last day, and it was great until the charged us for two days when I just mentioned we only had breakfast for one day. They mentioned that they would refund the money on the same day however I have not received it yet, it's been a month. They could have just pay me back on the checkout in cash but they didn't even mention it. They stopped answering my emails regarding the refund. Be aware of this type of things when you book a 4-star hotel in a small town.
