Our stay at Mar's Beautiful Romantic Apartment was amazing. The home is just as described, and our host made us feel very welcome with a selection of French cheese and a bottle of wine. Her key manager is also very nice and welcoming. She was understanding that we ran into unexpected traffic and was a tad off from our arranged time. Check out was a breeze also. They both were also very attentive and responsive to any questions we had during our stay.
The bed is very comfortable after a long day of travel. The shower is also nice with the multiple function jets. You will find everything you need for your stay: umbrellas, towels, kitchenware, corkscrew - a must in france :) , tv and internet, maps and a washer. We enjoyed the hand written guest book of previous visitors with tips on the neighborhood. The balcony is a perfect place to people watch any time of day. There are 3 venues just down stairs that light up in the evening. There was a little noise, but this didn't bother us at all. When you are in the moment and submerging yourself in the culture these little things do not matter.
Do note, at night when the stairwell is dark there is a lights switch just to the right of the door. This is helpful to know!
The neighborhood it's self is very charming and alive. We were visiting during Euro Cup 2016. I believe this added to the excitement and night life. A word to the wise, if you are visiting during the sporting events allow plenty of time to travel by car if driving, or taking a taxi. The gridlock was INSANE! We planned to take the public bus, but the transit workers were on strike at the time.
If you enjoy live music the Palace de Justice area has some great venues like Wayne's. We never ran across a bad meal at any of the cafes. You are within walking distance to everything like the beach and gallerias. Also the neighborhood has bike rentals. You are a short easy drive to Monaco and Cannes.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and host. We are keeping this in mind if we have a second visit, or if friends ask about visiting Nice. The price of the apartment is so convenient compared to hotels in the area. With added charm of living like the French for the visit, you won't be disappointed.
