This hotel is located in a perfect location. It is walking distance to a lot of different shops, restaurants, bus stops, the beach, etc. They have a couple of different restaurants in the hotel but the roof top one has a lovely view. There is an included breakfast and it is really nice. They do not have an omelet station but there is still a nice selection and variety of different foods. We ate at the rooftop restaurant on day for lunch as well and the view was wonderful from up there. Our only complaint was the toilet seemed to run or was noisy in our room. It didn't keep us awake but it was a little irritating at times. We walked to a lot of different places from the hotel. The location was excellent for seeing a number of different sights. We took a tour of the old town part of the city and It was just adjacent to the hotel. Galleries Lafayette is just a short walk away. Perfect location just across from a lovely park.
We had a deluxe room facing the beach and park and the view was classic Nice. The restaurant service was good. However updating is required. The corridors and room doors leading off them have damaged and missing paint, and the bathroom whilst large had dirty grouting and needed refurbishment. An expensive hotel shouldn't have these failings.
Definitively one of the best location along the famous "Promenade des Anglais" and closed to the "Vieux Nice". This hotel is a business hotel, with all the necessary amenities, but is needing to be refurbished to provide the level of quality which can be expected. Not bad, but surely not the nest choice if you consider there are several better hotels in the area, at an even more competitive price. Acceptable for business purpose, but not recommended for leisure.
First of all, excellent location - you are right across the street from the beach / Promenade. Walking distance to many of the tourist sites. For an upscale hotel within the Starwood portfolio, this hotel is unfortunately not reflecting the pricing. Our first night was spent in a regular room. Everything in the room screamed Best Western or worse. The bathtub had yellow rusty residue. The room was very dated, 1980's, 1990s at best. The shower coming out the shower head had very weak water pressure. Our 2nd and 3rd night was in a deluxe room. We had sliding doors that open and you can hear and feel the breeze from the sea (not really a terrace since you cannot sit outside and almost a little scary since the concrete slab is not more than 2 feet wide). The rooms in deluxe category are great improved from their classic. All that said, the staff was helpful and attentive and made our stay pleasant. The location was great. If I had to come back again, this hotel would be an option but would only be able to do so if I can book the deluxe rooms.
Great stop for a drink watching the planes come in and out of nice airport , lovely cheerful waiting staff and well worth a visit . You can eat on the terrace and the food looked delicious . There is also a rooftop pool for guests of the hotel . I'll let the photo talk for itself .
We were greeted by Ann at the front desk, she is from Sweden...and absolutely wonderful. The room was not ready when we arrived, but it was prior to 3:00 checkin so I'm not complaining! The bell boys were so punctual, respectful and they made us feel comfortable leaving our bags and hitting the city of nice. Came back at 3 to find we had been upgraded to the executive suite and it had the most amazing corner view of the ocean. Highly recommend being as high up as possible, the traffic from the street can get loud. The hotel help were so nice and all the ppl that told us French ppl were rude were wrong! Yes, there are a few things that could be updated like paint on the walls and carpet, but all in all we really enjoyed it! Thank you for making the experience great for us!
Nice hotel on the promenade d'anglais. We took a room with and one without seaview and we were very glad with the service. The breakfast is amazing and everything is close by, such as shopping, the beach and the historic centre of Nice.
I don't understand how this is a Starwood Category 5 hotel. It must be because of the location. The lobby is the only nice part of the hotel. The hallways and rooms are dark, musty, and old. Extremely outdated and not what I would consider "nice" at all. The don't supply beach towels, so if you want to lay at the beach you must bring your own or buy your own at one of the shops nearby (15-20 euros). The rooftop pool is a joke. The hotel pictures make it look nice, but it's just a pool surrounded by a glass fence. There are no lounge chairs or any room to sit around the pool. So, don't plan to do any pool lounging at this hotel. The ONLY good thing about this hotel is the location - central to restaurants, near the beach, and a 10-15 minute walk to Old Town.
We had a side room which gave us beautiful views of the city and the sea. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was very good with eggs, meat, cheeses, variety of breads, juices, coffee.
Well, all in all, a descent hotel, location-wise, really good though. Breakfast was really nice. But: This allegedly 5-star hotel has a McDonald's on the first floor! The hotel does not have it's own parking. You have to use one of the underground parkings next to it, which was 25.40 Euros per night. In addition, you have to pay 24 Euros per person for the beach, which is recommended by the hotel and is located in front of it. The Wi-Fi was really terrible - extremely slow! At first, when I complained about the quality of Wi-Fi, the hotel staff wanted to offer to change the room. Later on, they gave me another pass-code for another Wi-Fi, which was a bit better, but still too slow. And then, on top of all this you add 320 Euros per night... In my opinion, the value for money for this property is not worth it! I will not consider staying there again, that's for sure!
