We had a great stay here in November and enjoyed beautiful weather at 23C. Ideally located in the heart of the vibrant Old Town. Plenty of restaurants, shops, markets and bars right on the doorstep. Easy to walk to other parts of Nice and promenade along the sea front. Apartment is exactly as shown in photos - clean, contemporary and well equipped. One thing to note though is that upstairs there isn't a lot of head room if you are very tall, especially in the shower over the bath. My husband is 6'2" and his head touched the ceiling. Jenny, who met us at the bus stop and took us to the apartment was very helpful. There was a welcome pack of milk, coffee, biscuits and other essentials, which we weren't expecting and was much appreciated as we arrived late at night. We would definitely use YNa again. Thank you for making it all so easy.

This apartment is situated in the heart of old town so it's very convenient! The furnishings are simple and tasteful which added to the light and airy feel. As with many parts of old town, the night life can get quite noisy. This apartment overlooks a neighborhood bar which can be loud later at night. However the windows are very sound-proof. Overall, great experience! Would stay here again. Read more
Hi Melissa, I'm pleased that the double glazing saved you from the noise of the locals socialising. Sky truly is a lovely apartment and we are glad that you thought so too. Best wishes RHONDA & the YNA Team

We have used Nice apartments before and always found them very good.
Sky is very well furnished.
It is in the heart of the old town so excellent for restaurants.
Only drawback is that it was noisier at night than our previous rentals. Read more
