The location is perfect and it is easy to walk to the old town and markets as well as the promenade. We had a wonderful view of the sea and the passing parade below. Staff were very attentive and breakfast was very good. The rooftop restaurant is pricey, but well worth the splurge. Our only quibble was lack of tea making facilities in your room.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights over the Easter weekend. We requested an early check-in (dependent on availability), and got this as well as a room upgrade. The staff were generally very pleasant and helpful. The deluxe sea-view room with balcony was well worth it. It was clean and the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The only thing lacking was a coffee machine. The views were absolutely amazing and a visit to the rooftop bar is highly recommended. The hotel is centrally located so the everything is within walking distance. The beach is a 5 minute walk, Galleries La Fayette 10 mins and the train station about 20 minutes away. There are loads of restaurants in the area, however they are pretty expensive. Try and visit the old village where you will find authentic cuisine and decent prices. Remember to put the Do Not Disturb sign on your door or you will be woken by housekeeping at 8 am!
Pros: Staff are friendly Hotel location across the promenade is great. The rooftop pool is amazing and always warm. The restaurant at the rooftop has a bar which is quite nice and relaxed as well. The pool is great for kids as they can splash about and there were lots of other kids in there as well. The views from the rooftop are amazing and worth the price of the hotel! Cons: Hotel rooms are a bit dated Rooms are pretty small for the price. We had a classic room and it felt quite tiny compared to other hotels I have been to. There was no kettle or complimentary coffee in the room. I asked for a kettle and got one, but they always wanted it back quite soon after. Surely they can afford to buy more kettles. Not sure whether the mcdonalds next to the hotel is a pro or a con. The kids thought it was amazing. I didn't!
So, i had booked an event here 2 years ago - it was pretty expensive, but the event went very well, and the meeting room had an amazing view and ambiance So, this time, I decided to stay at the hotel for 5 nights. This was a mistake. The hotel is very old and is lacking in many areas. All prices are jacked up as they try to milk more and more customers without making the hotel better. At checkin, they told me delta diamond had no status there. I told them to google "SPG hotels delta diamond" guess what the first result was - official policies from SPG and delta... The fitness center equipment that won an award in 1999. One piece of equipment (out of the 3 weight machines) was broken for 5 days straight. F minus. They have one beer on tap and its 11.50 for a pint. We had to argue with rooftop bar staff to get snacks (which 100% of other guests had) with our 4 drinks. Parking is NOT on site, fairly convenient but still a bit of a pain. Very expensive rooms - however, the bed was big, and they did a good job cleaning. The location is exceptional though, and the view from the rooftap bar cannot be beat. However, I had to hop up there on one foot because there is no elevator. The outdoor pool is maybe the size of 8 bathtubs This hotel is not worth the price
We spent 4 nights at Le Meridien over Easter, and rented 2 rooms: one for my husband and myself, and another for our teenage sons. Our 'garden and sea view' room was distinctly smelly of smoke, and so for an extra 25 Euros a night we changed to a full sea view room. Our sons' room was overlooking a courtyard and was quite dingy and had bad scratches on the door. Our bed mattress was saggy in the middle. The decor is really very 'tired' for a hotel of this price, and it felt rather past its best. The hallway carpets are brown with pink stripes, and the walls/doors are purple! On the plus side, the location is great, overlooking the Prom des Anglais and close to the old town, Place Massena etc. We found the staff to be polite and helpful. The rooftop restaurant is pricey and the service is slow, but it is a wonderful location and it was great to be able to sip drinks while looking over the Med. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for the location but not for the decor or value for money.
The location of this hotel is excellent! The staff is amazing and very helpful! The sea facing rooms are great but they are tatty and the holes in the dark curtains are unacceptable as is the cleanliness of the curtains. This was our only gripe! Would sty there again!
The hotel location is the best you are going to get as its close to everything. The staff are super amazing and do anything for you to make your stay an enjoyable one. The rooms are really nice with a very large king size bed. The bathrooms do need updating but they are nice and I suppose in time Le Meridien will update. The breakfast is one of the best we have had. The breakfast staff are wonderful and very kind. My wife did encounter a rude member of staff at breakfast and this was reported, but we didn't make it spoil our stay. The roof top pool is nice and warm. My little boy enjoyed that. We are SPG members and enjoyed 15% discount on all food and drinks at hotel. Also, free super fast wifi in room. Le Meridien, we will be back as we enjoyed your hotel. Thank you.......
Like any other hotel this one has its good and bad parts, however the negative parts led me to completely dislike the hotel. The hotel staff was overall guest oriented and friendly, but not everyone. At front desk, I received attitude when I asked and requested late check out. Also, the food was completely overpriced and completely not worth it. A hamburger at the roof terrace costed €26 (it was good, still expensive) , and when I ordered room service the food was not good at all , the pasta didn't taste like anything and the fruit was not fresh. Moreover, the room had a bad smell throughout my stay and the rooms next to me had doors that creaked. At the top floor there are no sun beds, the hotel just has a pool a restaurant and a lounge area. So to enjoy the sun I had to go to the closest beach restaurant that was 5 minutes away from the hotel. My experience at this hotel was not good, however I have to acknowledge that the hotel has a great location. It's close to restaurants and shopping areas, but not from the airport nor famous beack clubs in Nice.
Superb location, right on the Promenade des Angles. Very good staff, friendly and helpful. OK breakfast but if it hadn't been included I would think there are better options close by. Close to the Old Town with all its excellent restaurants. Main problem is that the hotel is in need of refurbishment. Breakfast room chairs are all saggy and room furniture is showing signs of age. Needs some TLC.
Located across the street from the beach and just a few blocks from the old town, the Meridien hotel was in a perfect location for touring the city. The room was clean and nice. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Definitely would stay there again.
