Where to Stay in Nice, France: Boutique Best Western Plus Hotel Massena

by Accommodations, France23 comments

A queen of the French Riviera, Nice is a must-see for travelers who are looking into exploring France’s stunning coastal location. After all, with its year-round sunshine, this city is a haven for sun-seekers too! That being said, for such an exceptional destination, you surely must stay in an equally exceptional setting; that’s why when it comes to the best accommodation, it should be no other than the finest boutique hotel possible: Best Western Plus Hotel Massena Nice.

I had the chance to stay in this hotel myself, and I was more than satisfied with its features, location, and amenities. Here’s why…

Best Western Plus Hotel Massena

Hotel Massena Lobby

Prime Location. Smacked right at the heart of Nice’s city center, Hotel Massena is very close not only to the beautiful Place Masséna, but to the city’s iconic attractions and beaches, Promenade des Anglais, the Old Town, and so much more. Furthermore, it’s also just a mere 20-minute bus ride or a 15-minute car ride away from the airport.

Lux Interiors. A “modern-pop art” scene, Hotel Massena has been designed by Mrs. Leng, the hotel owner, who ensured that the aesthetic features are of the highest quality, inducing an emotion of warmth and sharpness.

Newly-Renovated. To better enhance the experience of the guests, the guest areas, as well as all of the rooms, have been entirely renovated and redesigned as of 2014 in order to blend in with the overall theme of ‘Pop Art’. With such a change, it was surely a delight to see how almost every corner of the hotel was a sure eye-candy!


Sofia Junior Suite

Best Western Plus Hotel Massena Nice has over 110 rooms and a suite. I personally had the chance to stay in their “Sofia” Junior Suite and one of their Deluxe rooms and it was definitely a staycation that made me feel right at home — a ‘home’ that was more comfortable, luxurious, and refined.

To illustrate, here are your room choices in Hotel Massena:

“Sofia” Junior Suite: one of the best things about this suite is its spacious terrace which gave me breathtaking views over Nice’s skyline! For days when I want to soak up the sun, the deckchairs have also been very helpful. (It’s at 35sqm, super king-sized bed at 200×200 cm, lounge area, bathtub, etc.)


  • Deluxe Room: 20 to 28 sqm with private terrace
  • Privilège Room: 20 to 23 sqm (some have a balcony depending on availability)
  • Traditional Double Room: 15 to 20 sqm
  • Triple Room Can be Deluxe: (28sqm) or Privilège (25sqm)
  • Traditional Single Room: 14 sqm

(NOTE: All of the hotel rooms have high-quality luxury bedding with a mattress pad, air conditioning, FREE wifi and internet, flat-screen television with 56 international channels, bathroom, mini bar, a welcome tray of goodies, and safe among many others.)


Ruhl Beach

Private Beach. If you’re interested in lounging by the beach of Nice, Hotel Massena has partnered up with Ruhl Beach to grant its guests a discounted price of €25 per person (instead of the original price of €33) and this will already include an air mattress, parasol, towels, and changing rooms access. You can avail of this coupon by inquiring at the hotel reception.


Hotel Massena  Dining

Breakfast. A buffet breakfast is served on the ground floor from 6:30AM to 10:00 AM (or 11:00AM in the summer). It serves an array of selections such as pastries, cereals, fresh fruits, charcuterie, cheeses, sausages, salads, fruit juices, hot drinks, eggs, and more.

Bar. The perfect place to unwind as the day ends would be this bar area that’s open 24/7. It has a wide range of choices for fresh cocktails, beers, wines, champagne, and more.


The staff in Hotel Massena surely helped made my stay in Nice even more memorable than it already was! They were absolutely approachable and are extremely helpful with whatever inquiries I had. Rest assured, their reception personnel are all multilingual and are available 24 hours a day.

They also offer assistance on transportation, tours, luggage service, currency exchange, photocopying, etc.
