Cor blimey - its a bit posh innit ?

I generally send people who want a base to the Kyriad in rue Emmanualle Philibert, near the Port of Nice and the old town, but although very clean,smart and modern, it's not in the same league as Villa Aimée, which looks wonderful !

Okay, so can anybody recommend a reasonably priced hotel in Nice for two elderly, but adventurous ladies.  I'm sure they don't want an "English" experience, but would like to explore the town as much as they can, which is why they wish to stay in Nice itself.  Perhaps its not the safest option?

There is no such thing as a B&B in Nice ! It's a cheap hotel with a continental breakfast served at the bistro part downstairs ! Take your 'full cooked English breakfast' at some of the establishments in the old town if strong coffee and a pain au chocolate isn't what you're used to ! Of course the tourist office speaks English but this isn't Frinton-On-Sea !!

I suspect that some of the staff at the Office du Tourisme will speak English, contact details http://www.nicetourism.com/GB/frameset/pratique/frameset_contact.html(in English even)or Gites de France have pages in English for searching/booking B&B etc.http://www.gites-de-france.fr/eng/index.htmOf course, you'll have to tell your enquirer not to drink the water, to keep well clear of any dogs, and inform friends and family that they will be out of contact with the civilised world for the duration of their stay here.
