Bottom Line

The Ajoupa Apart'hotel is a well-located budget apartment-style hotel that's about a three-minute walk to the Place Massena. Its 32 apartments range from Single Studios to Two-Room Suites that can sleep up to four, and include kitchenettes, Nespresso coffeemakers (without pods), flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, and housekeeping once a week. There's a front desk staffed through the early evening, with concierge services available. The hotel offers a continental breakfast for an extra fee, which guests can take in their rooms. Travelers not dead-set on apartment-style living might want to check out the nearby Nice Garden Hotel, a charming property with a garden but no in-room kitchenettes.

Ajoupa Apart’hotel Nice

Scene

Utilitarian-looking apartment hotel with few common areas

The Ajoupa Apart'hotel is an apartment hotel with utilitarian-looking rooms situated in two separate but nearby town houses along a bustling pedestrian street. While there's no real lobby, a small wood-paneled reception area with traditional speckled cement floors, a few upholstered chairs, and some maps and brochures, is on the fifth floor. Guests should note that while the hotel has an elevator, it stops on landings between floors,so guests still need to negotiate up a shorter flight of stairs to reach rooms. This apartment hotel is a good choice for budget-minded families, couples, and solo travelers looking for an apartment-style place with cooking facilities.

Ajoupa is situated in the heart of Nice on a bustling pedestrian street about a three-minute walk to the Promenade du Paillon and a five-minute walk to the eastern end of the Promenade des Anglais and the beach.

Rooms

Apartments and studios with kitchenettes, Nespresso coffeemakers, and flat-screen TVs 

Ajoupa's 32 studios and apartments include Standard and Superior Singles and Doubles, as well as Junior and Two-Room Suites, which can accommodate up to four guests. Standard Single Studios, at 140 square feet, are tiny, while others measure at least 200 square feet.

Apartments are basic, with bare wood or tile floors, white walls and painted or wallpapered accent walls, and a mix of wood furniture. Brown drapes and matching pillows help pull the look together, and artwork over the beds adds splashes of style. While some rooms have been renovated, others show signs of wear.

All rooms include kitchenettes with sinks, fridges, stove-top burners, microwaves, kettles, toasters, and dishware. Rooms also come with Nespresso coffeemakers, but guests must purchase their own pods. Rooms also have flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, irons and ironing boards, air-conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. Upgraded rooms may have balconies, sitting areas, couches, and other extras. 

Bathrooms vary, but most have white tile with either single-standing showers with rainfall showerheads, or shower/tub combos, and come stocked with hairdryers, towels, and welcome toiletries, which are not replenished. Housekeeping comes once a week. Guests are expected to wash dishes and take out their own garbage before they leave. Some past guests have complained about noise traveling between the units.
