This is my second visit to this hotel and I chose it because of my extremely good past experience. I can say that the infrastructure of thehotel is still excellent, but the staff, especially the front desk, is far more unkind than the last time. The reception staff is cold and the restaurant staff does not know the food from the menu. However, the location of the hotel is so good that it is worth to endure some bitterness. I would like to pinpoint a heated outdoor pool on the roof of the hotel. The treatment of SPG elite members is good as well as communication with the back office. Since I intend to visit Nica again, I sincerely hope that staff will have some training in the meantime to make the stay more enjoyable.

Excellent position and we took an upgrade room from the basic to have one overlooking the sea and well worth it. Wonderful to wake up looking at the sun over the Mediterranean! The room was very business like and the staff very helpful. There was no kettle or cups in the room but on asking came within 5 minutes. The same for bathrobes and slippers, as long as you ask they will provide. Very good breakfast if you can get included in your package but not sure I would have paid the €25 if not included.

Honestly worst Hotel Room in the past few years. The carpet is old and dirty, the view is something that reminds more of a prison than anything else. Somebody I traveled with had a great view but also the room was disappointing. The shower couldn't handle water down the drainage which has led to the flood of water in the whole bathroom that not even all the towels in the bathroom were able to stop. When I told the front desk at checkout the next day, they said thank you and that they will have somebody to check out. No credit, or free something, just a thank you. There was also something like a steam pipe that constantly made a white noise quite loudly, I've made a recording of it because I've never experienced anything like it.

We spent 4 days in Nice and stayed at Le Meridien. The Location is awesome, the beach is Close by, there is a park across the street and the Shopping mile starts just a block further. The hotel itself is great as well. Very friendly and welcoming staff, be at the reception or at the restaurant. The Lobby is nice, there is lots of room to hang out at. The elevators are nice as well, they quickly take you even to the top floor. On the top floor, just a couple of stair steps up and you are on the roof top, where there is a bar and a small pool. This place can be quite crowded and orders take their time to arrive. The pool, well, it's OK if you don't mind that it is right next to people drinking and eating, as it is not secluded from the bar area. We had an Executive Room on the top floor with partial sea view. The size of the room is great, by far enough room for two. The bathroom is nice as well, lots of space for all the daily stuff. The shower is in a bath tub, but that is quite common and absolutely OK. The toilet is a bit cramped into a separate, small room. There is lots of storage room available for clothes and shoes. Also, a bathrobe can be found in the cabinet. The bed was OK, great size. However, the mattresses had their best days far behind, with a strong trough in the middle. Still OK to sleep on, though. There is a large enough TV as well, with lots of channels in French, English, German... The great Thing about this room was the terrace. It is about 2x4 Meters, with an astonishing view over the park, eastern town, beach and ocean. Beautiful sunrises, as our room was facing east side. Also located on floor 9 is the Spa. We didn't visit it, however, the floor was sure to always smell good and fresh. The morning buffet is awesome, lots of cereals, bread, cheese, beans, sausages and whatnot to choose from. Water, fruit juice, coffee, tea – all available. We did not eat at the hotel's Restaurant, as there are so many Restaurants along the streets. The one called La Storia was great. Over all, this is a hotel I can recommend and would absolutely consider again.

What you get vs what you pay is a massive gap. This hotel is dated a few things like beds have past their sell by date. Rooms are sparse and have no character. Views I guess are good but room is average to low, the hard bed etc outweigh any upside or view... For what you pay this is exceptionally disappointing...

The location is amazing, right at the promenade des Anglais at the city center. Breakfast is oké. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. Maintenance could be improved. Make sure that you the rooftop bar and restaurant for the views are amazing.

Whilst the sea and promenade view is amazing from here drinks come at a massive premium rate. 2 drinks each were 59euro which we felt was extortionate. Staff were nice enough. Wouldn’t hurry back though fine for a brief interlude, despite the fellow drinkers using the place for a fake pose as a place to be seen.

The hotel is exploiting it's superb location ( just in front of the sea, across Promenade de Angles ), therefore probably doesn't care much about it's own service, ambience and overall quality. It might be luxury hotel few decades ago, but not today. Hotel located, as number 1 show, in the end of sea-front boulevard, appr. 10-15 minute ride from airport. Transfer to/from airport costs 40 and 37 eur respectively, cards not accepted in taxi. The proximity to the sea is the only real benefit of hotel though. Hotel occupies full block, also McDonald being placed in the same building on ground floor and Mercure hotel on other side of block. Strange setup - reception is on second floor, so you need to use escalator to enter one. The quality of accomodation probably depends much on room category. I was lucky to get seaview room with balcony, at least that was the only positive moment of stay. Positive: location and access to beach; catering during business venues Negative: while catering day time during business venues was ok and sometimes even of excellent quality, the same can not be told about breakfast and restaurant service - looks like 2 different chefs and kitchen shifts has been working. Breakfast of very limited choice and average quality, absolutely no vegetables available at all. Evening restaurant service - bad quality food, messed service. Very expensive food and drinks at lobby bar and restaurant. Would not recommend and would not stay myself.

The address of hotel is promenade 1. Actually They're on the beach. 15 minutes ' walk from Nice Station? It is not bad because it takes 7 to 8 minutes by taxi. I received the highest room on the ninth floor as a SPG platinum member. Not big enough to make a splash though room was nice and decent. The interior seems like French style. Mixed colors which are purple, black and white tone properly. It felt modern, too! There's no lounge at this hotel. Though I was satisfied because I was able to handle employees well. The gym is on the ninth floor. It's very small. The spa facility was quite expensive, so I didn't use. You can be served breakfast at the 2nd floor which is near the lobby. It was so delicious, there were various continental style breakfast menus. Overally I was satisfied with the view from the balcony of room and the convenient location. There are car rental places like hertz, sixt very close to this hotel. Also you can visit central shopping spots in several minutes on foot.

My husband and I spent 12 very pleasant nights at Le Meridien. The staff was very accommodating, the breakfasts were good and the location near great restaurants and tourist sights was perfect. Our room overlooked the water and palace hill. Each day offered beautiful changing views. We would definitely return.
