The plus points of this hotel would definitely be the location and ALSO THE STAFF who are very helpful and makes you feel comfortable during your stay there👍(I’ve been in France couple of times and it’s not always the case🤦‍♀️ but that’s another story). The service given in this hotel is really good which isn’t without its price that I have to admit but it’s worth it. This clean hotel has very cozy and clean rooms with beautiful seaview( if u r ready to pay the price).THE BREAKFAST was a huge disappointment during the stay. They really need to amp up their breakfast game. I’ll not go into each detail that was lacking but for example we stayed there of 3days and we got eggs served just the second day... simply saying “it was bad ” n it being a 4star hotel I accept little more variety on the breakfast table.BUT then lunch n dinner were bomb 🙌.

A great hotel with an amazing position in Nice. I stayed here for my girlfriends birthday and the hotel couldn't have been more helpful with how I wanted the room setup and what they could offer to make the experience what I wanted. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Nice. If I return to Nice I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel came highly recommended in various travel guides (including TripAdvisor), so we splurged on a 4 night stay with promises of majestic ocean views, marble bathrooms and potted orchids in the room. Sadly, this was not the case. Our superior room was very small with an EXTREMELY uncomfortable bed and rock hard pillows, the carpets were dirty and the bathroom is fake formica beige plastic counter tops. We also had no ocean view unless we walked outside and around a corner to the terrace. The breakfast buffet was pathetic (paltry low-grade selection) and unsanitary--I watched other hotel guests cutting baguettes and leaving the discards for the next guest, others coughing directly into the cereals and my partner actually found a tightly curled black hair at the bottom of his coffee cup after his last gulp. The manager of the hotel did eventually apologize and offered 2 complimentary glasses of champagne but we declined as we do not drink. Check out was pretty unforgivable. We were informed that the Boulevard des Anglais would be closed the next day due to an event and access to the airport would be interrupted. We had an early flight the next morning, so we had to check out that night and reserve another hotel by the airport (the Novotel) in order to make our flight. The hotel offered no consolations, no apologies for the inconvenience not to mention the loss of money. In fact, nobody even asked us how was our stay upon checking out as they were too preoccupied with the 12 euro fee we owed for taxes. Really bad form. To be fair, the staff were nice but clueless and the hotel is in a pretty great location, but the accommodations and service are nowhere near 4 stars. AVOID!

Spent five fabulous nights there. Very friendly and professional staff. Sea view rooms are a must. Recommend rates with breakfast, as is expensive separately. Most of the sightseeing in walking distance.

This was our 4th hotel stop during a holiday trip to Southern France...and let me say that the bar had been set pretty high by the other that hotels we stayed at-we really splurged to stay here, since it was not cheap. The absolute best part of our visit here was the view-we never got tired of the view. The second best part was the hotel staff who were wonderful and helpful in every way possible. Aside from that, the room was very small, it was expensive and breakfast we were told would be 24 Euro a person-though on their own website they offer it included if you book direct with them-(we had booked thru Expedia and were not entitled to breakfast...I was unaware of this and expected that for the price that we paid breakfast should be included). We also experienced the ant situation in our bathroom-which was dealt with rather quickly by the hotel staff, but was still annoying. I would say that the rooms also need better sound-proofing-especially to the hallways we could hear everything thru the doors to the hallway and could see light from the halls coming in under the doors. They also have many signs up saying that you should keep your patio door closed when you are not in the room and we came home one day to find that housekeeping had left our doors wide open for the entire day we were out-the same thing with our traveling companion who stayed in the adjacent room. The hotel did not seem that secure and they were many times that we walked into the hotel and there was nobody seen at the front desk. The location is convenient to old town and the flower market-we also walked to the old port from here, but it is not what I would consider centrally located-the view is what you get here-so if you are not willing to spend the extra $$ for a waterfront view-stay someplace else. The pool area looked quite nice, but it was not the season to be lounging by the pool for us-I would imagine in the summer this would be a welcome relief at the end of the day. Beware-it was also a $47 Euro cab ride for us from the airport which seemed totally ridiculous-since the airport is approx 4 miles away....I know that this is not the hotel's fault but I am just making you aware of it if you are planning to stay here. A coffee machine in the room would have been nice. The lobby is small, unwelcoming and rather sad-the entire hotel needs a bit of a facelift to be considered a "luxury" hotel. Aside from the view this hotel was a major disappointment and not worth the money that we spent.

I stayed at La Perouse Hotel for three nights in late June 2017. Although I’d been to Nice several times before,this experience in Old Nice was just perfect. My suite had a balcony perched right above Promenade Des Anglais with a magnificent view right across to Antibes.The room was large with a comfortable sofa,fabulous well lit bathroom and a walk in closet with plenty of storage. The restaurant is charming and is situated adjacent to the very pleasant pool area. I so appreciated the mindful attentiveness of the staff,especially those in the restaurant. Good variety and quality was very enjoyable. I very much look forward to returning -hopefully to the same room - in 2018 for a longer stay. Book early but do visit this lovely property!

Nice is a charming town with beautiful weather each day of our stay. Be ready for an unpredictable taxi fare either to or from the airport; which could be quite inconsistent and costly (anywhere from 35-48 EURO for a ten-minute drive, depending upon the driver). The Hotel La Perouse is a beautiful hotel with a gorgeous view of both the promenade and the Med; depending upon which room you have. The buffet breakfast was not worth the price of 24 EURO/person per morning; especially since the quoted price during booking had been 16 EURO/person per morning. The room service, on the other hand, was well worth the price. Otherwise, the hotel staff assistance/Jacuzzi/location/view were also worth the trip. Even though most people in Nice spoke some English, knowing key French phrases was very helpful to us both at the hotel and in the downtown area. The 60-minute public bus ride between Nice and Menton (on the Italian border), with stops included in Monaco, for only 1.50 EURO is a gorgeous view and should not be missed. Of the three Christmas markets we went to, the one in Monaco was the most charming; complete with local artisan ornaments and crafts. Not to ramble on about money, but be prepared to shell out quite a bit in Monaco; it really is that expensive and pretentious.

My partner and I stayed at Hotel La Perouse in November 2016, where we absolutely fell in love with everything about it! We returned this week for another 3 night stay, we booked a superior garden view room, but on arrival we had a lovely little balcony with a sea view, this was beautiful - despite the two day storm! This was a lovely gesture of the hotel to have given us this room. One of the perks we loved about the hotel last year was the fantastic room service, vast menu and the breakfast selection! However, to our disappointment, this has gone downhill. The menu has been changed & condensed, the choice of food on the menu was the same for both room service and the restaurant downstairs, being rather boring menu choices too. The breakfast buffet has changed too, lack of bread/baguettes as well as pastries, not the vast selection we had last year. Also, no hot food at the buffet - this has to be ordered at the table for added supplement. The fresh orange juice machine has also disappeared! Although I must say, the food we had was fantastic quality! Moving on to the room, as beautiful as the view was, when returning to our room after a day out, we had to call down to reception to report that there were ants all over our bedside tables, skirting boards and carpet. This was dealt with immediately, with a member of staff having to spray repellent. Overall, the hotel was lovely, but it was a slight let down in comparison to last year.

The hotel is very well located and offers a fantastic view on the sea. The old city is just next to the hotel and there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Staff is kind and helpful. My room was at the 5th floor but it's annoying to reach it cos there are different lifts to be taken or stairs. The room was nice but a bit small, bed very comfortable. It would be nice to have coffee and tea facility in the room. The bathroom is nice and towels are very soft. The best thing of my room 505 was certainly the terrace, very big and offers a stunning view on the Mediterranean sea! That's really fantastic. I was nevertheless very disappointed by the breakfast: very poor for the standard of the hotel and the quality of food was medium. But the most ridiculous thing is that the espresso and other warn drinks were not included in the already expensive breakfast that's really a minus for the hotel, besides water was taken from the tap! On top of that there is no food for people with food intolerances. It's not easy to find a decent cheap parking space in the area, specially at weekend, so the hotel deal could be nice, although it might seem expensive.

We were in the Superior room with full sea view. It had a "full sea view" but some roof tops visible (not blocking that much). Things are generally quite small in La Perouse. Small elevators, small room, small bathroom, small balcony, small breakfast buffet and so on. The website picture showed a bathtub but that wasn't in our bathroom but it was ok enough because we managed to use the jacuzzi (32°C). That was the fun part and it was fairly private at this time of year. There were other guests, but by coincidence others were not in the jacuzzi when we were there. At a very popular time of the year, the experience would be certainly very different. There was also a "sauna". The wood and the window in that place was ok but otherwise it was a failure. The temperature said 95°C but that certainly was not true for the average air temperature. It was more like 70°C and the sauna heater did almost nothing when throwing water in it. Except it let out a terrible smell. I don't know if it was the water or the stones, but it let out a terrible moldy smell. A very big failure. Also the sauna is big enough for approximately two persons only. It might've been fun to have a hot sauna and then plunge in the unheated pool (cold at this time of year) but no way in this condiction could the sauna be used for anything else than some mild warming up without throwing water. According to one cocktail we tested the quality of the drinks at the bar is not good. However, the staff is fine and generally you feel fine in this hotel. But we did not understand the room service coming in the room in the evening, even opening the door by themselves (interrupting). What is the purpose as we can call if we want room service? Probably better to offer any spontaneous room service only extremely sensitively if at all. The breakfast is not luxurious. However, basic things were there (ok orange juice etc.). There was also a bunch of ants and a spider, perhaps because Le Patio is half outside (there is a door though so this should be fixable). At a cold time, seats near the window were cold. (As another small thing: we were given late check-out time at 1 h later than normal, but after the normal time the key stopped working so it was difficult to get in the room.) The view and the air quality were fine (good outside, mediocre inside). Also noise level is otherwise fine except the walls and the room door are "paper". Almost no isolation at all. That however is fine if there happens to be no other guests nearby. The WiFi connection is moderate at best. The connection quality depends on location, very slow by today's standards (usable for very basic use). The "gym" and the outdoor showers (cold) are quite shady, definitely not luxurious or big. For this price (different prices depending on season) you can get much higher quality elsewhere. However, it's Nice and there is a view and enough distance from the street so that is what you pay for. There are tons of things to improve in this hotel, but perhaps a major renovation will not happen because then probably everything should be replanned and redone from scratch. There was an electric cable renovation in one corridor going on when we arrived. The place is in a way sympathetic but by today's standards, far from perfection. That said, it certainly was fun to visit the jacuzzi and the sauna because it was a private experience (by coincidence).
