Located in the far east of the city, north of the port, the Hipark is relatively far from Nice city centre, though close to the Palais des Congrès. It is situated in a residential area of the city with numerous apartment buildings.
Note that there is a Carrefour supermarket and a McDonald's restaurant opposite the residence.
To really get a feel for the city, you have to travel several hundred metres to the Vieille Ville (Old Town) or the seafront and the start of the Promenade des Anglais. The city centre and the Nice-Ville SNCF train station are just under a mile away.
The Nice-Côte d'Azur International Airport is more than 4 miles from the Hipark.

The Hipark Residences has 136 apartments which range from studios for two to family suites for 6.
The apartments are divided into:
- 64 studios and exclusive studios between 19 and 32m². These studios are equipped with a sofa bed, a desk area, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom.
- 65 studios and executive studios between 29 and 49m². These can accommodate up to 4 people and have a bedroom with a bathroom, a lounge with a desk area and a fully equipped open kitchen.
- 7 family or 'Deluxe' suites between 44 and 54m², which can accommodate up to 6 people. These have two large bedrooms, with a queen size bed in one and two twin beds in the other, a spacious lounge, a fully equipped kitchen and a small dining area.
All the apartments were decorated by designer Didier Gomez in an understated and contemporary style, where grey and white dominate the walls, ceilings and sofas, with a touch of orange in the bedspreads and the upholstery of some of the chairs and cushions to brighten them up. The colour of the dark wood floor is matched by the cupboard doors. The overall effect is modern, warm and highly functional. Even in the studios with their limited space, where the kitchen area is in the same room as the sofa bed, the areas are relatively well marked out and do not feel cramped.
Out of the 64 apartments, 8 suites are fully equipped for guests with reduced mobility.
The apartments overlook either the street or the inner courtyard (where the greenery is not well maintained) and all have a balcony. The amenities include free high-speed cable or Wi-Fi Internet access, a flat-screen television (with interactive multimedia TV, weather reports, messages, alarm, etc.), a safe, an air-conditioning unit with individual control, a fully equipped kitchen (two ceramic glass hobs, a dishwasher, a microwave oven, a mini fridge and a kettle), an ironing board and iron, and a vacuum cleaner.
Depending on the period of your stay, housekeeping services are provided every two days for a stay of less than 7 nights, once a week for stays of more than 7 nights, and are not provided for a stay of 7 nights.
The grey and dark grey tiled bathrooms sport a highly contemporary decor and are equipped with a bathtub with a shower, a heated towel rail, a hair-dryer and bath products from the perfume maker Balise Mautin.
The Hipark Residences building is new with modern, grey and metal architecture, where only the door frame of the entrance stands out with its salmon colour. This six-storey façade with numerous balconies is in very good condition and from the outside gives the impression of a recent and modern residential building.
As soon as you walk through the entrance, you will see that this impression is not wrong, and what a relief! In fact, the relatively spacious lobby is decorated in a very contemporary style, in keeping with the times. What strikes you first as you enter the hotel is the brightness of the reception area, created by the large bay windows that almost fully cover the two wall sections that open out onto the outside. The whiteness of the ceiling, the curtains, some of the armchairs, and the cream floor tiles also contributes to the impression of brightness in the lobby.
As far as the decor is concerned, the style is obviously contemporary, even if it looks like a modernised version of a 70s comeback. The colour code is a blend of orange on the armchairs and the carpet tiles and chocolate brown on the wood floor in the relaxation area, on the pillars, doors, and some parts of the wooden walls.
The overall effect is a clever blend that contrasts the brightness of the white with the cosy atmosphere of the warm tints. In this particularly welcoming ambience you will find a very comfortable relaxation area with large sofas and deep armchairs where guests can settle down to read, relax, work or chat. It is just opposite the entrance and the reception desk with an orange carpet leading towards it.
The reception also has an understated and refined decor with its golden padded wall which highlights the dark brown wood and the white of the desk. The bay windows that open to the outside do not directly overlook the street but rather a strip of lawn with a few outdoor games for children and a sandbox.
Behind the reception, after the area with the two lifts, is a small, long narrow room, the business corner, with two computers and Internet access available to guests. Here also the decor is contemporary and urban, with its orange walls and wall sections covered with a black and white photo of the city creating a pleasant ambience.
In one corner are two drinks and confectionery vending machines. Next is the breakfast room with white walls that enhance its brightness, even though there is no natural light. With its golden wallpapered walls with Asian-style flower patterns, its modern colourful furniture and its contemporary lamps, this small room, which can seat around forty people, is appealing on the whole.
The Hipark Residences also has a sauna, a good gym with showers and lockers and a dozen of the latest generation sport equipment, and a very well maintained massage room.
For business guests, the Hipark Residences has two meeting rooms with a total surface area of 85m². These two meeting rooms are separated by a removable wall and are equipped with a screen, a flipchart, a projector and Wi-Fi Internet access.
The Hipark Residences has no catering services other than breakfast, as each apartment has its own kitchen.
The buffet-style breakfast is served from 7:30am to 10:30am Monday through Sunday. Guests can also take advantage of the take-away breakfast, comprised of two pastries, a hot drink and a fruit juice for ?8 (£7).
The Hipark Residences has a 24/7 reception desk, a concierge service, a wellness service (beauty treatments, massages, sport and weight-loss coach, etc.) and a City service (bike rental, tickets).
