Don't let the unassuming lobby fool you, Hotel La Perouse is special. Excellent friendly staff always greeted us with a smile, arranged for our late arriving luggage to be placed in our room while we were out and generally made for a pleasant visit. Our room had a outdoor patio with lounge chairs and pool towels at the ready. The building is unique and very cool with winding hallways and 3 different elevators adding to the charm. The roof top solarium offers the best views in town of both the Mediterranean and an overlook of Nice! Highly recommend!
Booked and prepaid the stay thru my agency - as CEO of a Telecom company need to facilitate the day by day. In town ta attend as keynote speaker in this scenic city, one way prior to the stay the book was prepaid thru a well known organization worldwide. For avoidance of doubt, the check in was made in writing by miself with my own name. During the checkout, I asked about the prepayment and the recepcionist very unpolite - Mr Fr - checked the files but in only 3 seconds was very rude saying that I needed to pay the stay. Luggage and wife embarked in a taxi, pressure to take the train, I was almost forced to pay due to the behavior of the employee. The payment dispute already started, but the lesson was already taken - stay away of this hotel or keep the two eyes on their unproper behavior. Their excuse that they blocked two rooms with my presence there was simply ridiculous. Just came back from USA and Mexico and the procedure adopted by my agency was the same without bad surprises, which the hotels Conrad and NH acted very honest. After dozens of review never in my life I desidered to write one like this, but I feel an obligation to warn the readers.
We chose this hotel partly because we hoped the location would be both interesting and provide easy access to Nice as a whole. It provided all of that. Very good welcome and swiftly taken up to our room which had a splendid view over the bay. The room was comfortable and the decor non-corporate. Basic WiFi was good enough for our needs. Our balcony/terrace was a very pleasant place to pass time. Only little niggle is that the narrow bath and location of the tap/shower made it a little difficult to use. We enjoyed our meals in the restaurant. Excellent sauces and well cooked fish. The bar and restaurant staff were very welcoming and remembered us. The bar area between the restaurant and pool is a very comfortable place to relax. The views from the roof are spectacular and it provides another place to relax. Overall a very good experience and if/when we return to Nice we would seriously consider returning.
We are welcomed back every time we arrive like we are coming back home. Hotel staff always remembers us, and we look forward to coming back over and over again. This place is just a hidden gem tucked away in nice! We stay no place else in nice, but here! Staf always surprises us with little extras, makes us feel extra special!
An inauspicious entrance suggested a small hotel not in keeping with what I had paid. But we were led up two little lifts and meandering corridors, climbing ever higher up into the bowels of this fascinating building nestling up again the rock face below the old castle . The latter - Parc de la Collins du Chateau - can be accessed via steps near the hotel entrance and well worth the climb especially early before the crowds arrive when the peace and the panoramic views can be savoured in silence. Once we reached our room, we were thrilled to see a large sun drenched patio and expansive views over the Med. Breakfast is served in the Patio restaurant and provides all one could want . The atmosphere at night is even better and we used the bar on both nights after returning from dinner Difficult to categorise as so quirky but excellent standards all around and superb location. So near to the old town and the port and most of the best restaurants and markets, we were very happy
Good, convinient central location, near to the old town and the harbour. The rooms are very quiet and our room at the 4th floor had lovely view to the Bay of Angels. Rooms are very clean. The service at the front desk was excellent. Breakfast is standard, but good. Only minus is that we have ordered gluten free products for breakfast. The first couple of days we got one small bun both my husband and I, nothing else, no pastries. And then even the buns suddenly run out and when we asked for the waiter for the gluten free bread they simply replied that there isn't any left. They had reserved 7 small buns for two persons for 5 night stay! The frond desk had confirmed us twice before our stay that they will have gluten free products. So we told them that they have run out of the restaurant and the next day we got gluten free bread again. It was awful. Dry and non eatable. It doesn'n mean that if you are on gluten free diet any gluten free bread will do. The free Wi-Fi was lousy. You couldn't surf at all with it.
This hotel was well located to enjoy the beach and to explore the old town. The hotel front desk staff were most helpful. The breakfast was a delicious way to start the day. The room was delightful and we enjoyed sitting on the small balcony.
I've stayed here many times and it would be my choice in Nice. I was tempted by the Hyatt but visited it while we were there and didn't like it compared to La Perouse. We arrived very early in the morning and they did give us a room at 9am which was very good of them. The first room we were shown was very dark. We asked for a different room and were given a garden room - even though much smaller room it's location was far better. It had a nice area outside the room with table and chairs. There is a lovely garden with lemon tree's where you can have lunch. Unfortunately they couldn't provide us with the lunch menu at around 10am so we went to eat at one of the recommended restaurants - Safari - it was awful. I love the pool in this hotel. It is lovely and deep. It was heated and open in April. It is a lovely secluded and private area - so relaxing for a busy city. I keep going back to this hotel because of the swimming pool. You can get the bus from the airport to the Casino (about 3 minutes walk from La Perouse). Having a car is not a good idea in Nice - much better to walk around the city. The breakfast is nice. The wifi on my phone didn't work - when I asked at reception they said the problem was with my phone....it is actually a cookie setting. Staff could be warmer and more helpful. The hotel is actually 2 buildings joined together back from the main road. It is not a good hotel if you have reduced mobility. It is a hotel with a nice French feeling to it. I'm actually surprised it is not a 5* hotel.
We enjoyed our stay at Hotel La Perouse. The location was very nice for exploring, the front desk was exceptionally helpful, the breakfast was a nice way to start each day and the dinner we ate there our first night was good also. I had my suitcase stolen from the train on the way to Nice. I could not find anyone at the train station to help me report the theft and get a report for insurance. The front desk receptionist was so kind as to translate and help me fill out the site in French with the train system. I would definitely recommend this delightful hotel.
We stayed for 5 nights at this hotel and were very happy with our selection. The location is very central to the old part of Nice. The outdoor pool is heated and in a very lovely setting. We ordered room service twice for dinner and on both occasions, the meals were very enjoyable. The rooms are very clean and there is a nightly turn-down service. We went out for the day and forgot to remove our 'do not disturb' sign and our room was not cleaned. When we returned to the room, we called down to the front desk just for fresh towels. The front desk wanted to make up our room and sent someone from housekeeping who serviced our room. Breakfast included fresh fruit, juice, breads, cereals, meats and cheeses. Also included is basic coffee and teas and there is a price list provided if you want anything beyond a basic coffee. For example, an espresso is 3 euros. We found this to be a bit of a cash-grab to charge for coffees when you are paying 500 euros a night for a room. We have stayed in numerous hotels in France and have never been charged extra for coffees. Overall, we were very happy with our selection and would stay at this hotel again.
