Le Meridien Nice4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I went to Nice in July for a short break from Doha and i was extremely disappointed with this area. Cannot understand why it is so popular and it is completely overrated. The hotel has an excellent location and that's it, charge a lot (cost benefit is unbelievable) without breakfast, without parking space, without change bed sheets in 5 days). Restaurant in roof top and location are the only positive aspects
Changed hotel after bad experience, Le Meridien almost fully booked. An amazing lady at reception saved my day. Sorry Madam in reception that day, and we met almost every day, I can't remember your name, but you know me, room 528 :) That room you arranged. Grateful. This will so my hotel to come back too. Personnel all over hotel was superb, but especially reception, all giving advice and helping. Room good standard and appreciated that rooms cleaned early, so if back during day, ready fresh. Rooftop bar view and personnel 10+, thanks guys, you grate. I recommend this hotel. My hotel in Nice.
fab hotel ,we had a see view room,was amazine ,promenade just across the road,aerport bus stops at hotel, we went in the first week november 2016,, weather was lovely,,warm sunny,would definitly stay here agn
Where should i start from... dear traveller you'll feel you're in a 5 stars hotel, when you will check in at the reception, or if you want to have a coffee in the hotel' s lobby, and when you re in the lift that plays music.. as soon as you step out of the lift, all 5 star image is changing, and it is like you end up in a 1950 movie, in a very old and dated and bad smelly hallway area. Carpets are full of marks, there are pieces missing from the doors. Rooms are not smelling as well fresh, and on bathrooms you will have bathrooms curtains, which i think is odd for now days hotels. Would i chose again this hotel: NO, i think you can find better places in Nice, even if it is not opposite the beach. I' m surprised that there is a huge gap between hotel and restaurant. If you have booked/or plan to book this hotel, for breakfast you will find a good selection of fresh food, and very good coffee. If you choose to have dinner on the rooftop hotel restaurants, must say: food is amazing an service is very good as well.
This fabulous SPG property on the sea in Nice delivered in all respects. We visited at the end of a Viking River Cruise. Of special mention is the service of Maxime at the rooftop restaurant La Terrasse. He made an already memorable meal a teult exceptional experience. Find the hotel, get to the 9th floor and ask for Maxime!
This is only about the rooftop bar, not the hotel. We went up to the 10th floor to the rooftop bar as it is widely cited as a good vantage point and spot for a drink. Sadly it was a mess - it felt tired and in need of a spring clean. Staff were not interested, even the bowl of crisps were stale and soggy. Overpriced as it stands - with a proper refurb then the prices would be OK. Compare with the rooftop bar at The Hotel Aston - that rates a 4 or 5, a good comparator that Le Meridien ought to be aspiring to.
We spent a week at Le Meridien in July this year looking for sunshine and relaxation. We got both. We have stayed in this hotel before but decided to splash out on an Executive Sea View. The balcony was lovely to sit on - especially at night. Be aware however that the ones on our floor (7) do not really get much direct sunlight so getting a tan on the two loungers is unlikely. Breakfasts were varied and good - though you need to get your order for tea or coffee in as soon as you sit down as you may have a wait. All the staff very very helpful and the location is perfect both for people watching and walking anywhere. We hired velobleu bikes from just opposite the hotel and it was a good way to see a bit further away. Yes there are small imperfections like slightly noises air con and some places could do with a redecoration - but this in no way took away from our stay. Overall - can be expensive - but worth it. We will be back again soon!
I would like to share one of the most shameful experiences someone can face, that resulted from the wrong procedures, misinformation of the client and complete lack of desire of the hotel staff to sort out the problem created by them from the beginning. I was making the reservation online for the other person. This was supposed to be a present, therefore I carefully checked all the available hotel options that require the full prepayment in advance to avoid any possible issues. That what Le Meridien website promised. Therefore I filled out all the details of the guest and provided the payment information. The payment was submitted and accepted, informing again that the condition of the reservation is the full prepayment at the time of reservation. This made me relaxed as I saw that everything went through. Nevertheless at the time of check out the guest contacted me and informed, that she is requested to pay for the room again! I called the hotel to find out what is the issue, and they informed me, that they didn't charge the card at the time of reservation (?????) because the reservation was made on the same date as the arrival date. This doesn't make sense as the website clearly informs that the full prepayment will be done at the time of online booking. I tried to sort out the payment over the phone, explaining that this is not mine or the guest's fault that the website initially misinformed me, that the payment showed as accepted and the reservation was created and confirmed without any warnings or notices. Nevertheless none of the people I spoke to tried to understand and help here. The situation became really terrible when I was informed that the only solution for me is to run to the bank and to send money to the guest by Western Union! I couldn't believe this is happening! Instead of enjoying the stay for the guest and for me enjoying the present made, we are both terrorized by the terrible management of the situation we fell victims to. I wonder if any of the people I spoke to tried to understand into which shameful situation they pushed me and how bad the whole experience became. One person I spoke to tried to refer me to page n. of the terms and conditions that they send with the reservation confirmation (after the payment and reservation was confirmed!!!!!), written in tiny letters and the very bottom of the page that the credit card can be asked at the check in. Again, I wouldn't know about it as my payment was processed successfully and the fully prepaid reservation was confirmed, so there was no need to scroll the long confirmation letter to the very bottom. There is no way I would recommend this hotel to anybody as I will never forget what this hotel have put me through.
I do have to admit that we absolutly loved the location, the staff were helpful however, eventhough we were the only ones in the lobby no one offered to help us with our luggage which would have been greatly appreciated . The rooms : the size of the room was shockingly small by husband banged his shoulders a few times every time he tuned a corner. Im quite thin and even for me it was difficult to get into the the toilet so you could only go in sideways before you could shut the door. I wish I could have attached a picture but I forgot take one. Now Im used to having coffee like on daily bases multiple times a day, and it was always nice to wake up to the smell of coffee in your hotel room before you head out. Well , not in this hotel , you don't get a coffee maker in your room but instead you get a voucher for one order of coffee/ cappuccino for the entire stay. So if you are a couple staying for 6 days you get one cup for the whole stay . As for water bottles . Since you are in Europe I have been told that tap water is just fine . But if you are a water bottle drinker then dont think you are getting more than 2 tiny bottles for the entire stay. As for cleaning standards: Well they changed the trash once every 2 days. As for parking: if you are planning to drive there be prepared to pay around 40 euros for a 2 day pass ( dicounted rate if you pick the 2 day package )to park in the same vasinity of the hotel which by the way means that the hotel is operating seperatly from the parking space. We really liked the location of the hotel but I can honestly say that I was not comfortable staying and so we spent most of our time out. Nice staff but the hotel needs an upkeep and for the money its charging its guest it should make an effort to meet the standards and a bit more .
We stayed for 4 nights to celebrate my birthday, and were so disappointed. Like mentioned by other guests before this hotel does not meet the standards you expect from a 4 star Le Meridien. Dark, sad hallways with shabby, stained carpet. The room outdated, two single mattresses pushed together leaving a huge gap inbetween, and a bathroom with a cheap and poorly designed shower crammed into one end of the bathtub. The breakfast and the location are very good, fast internet, the roof top terrace was nice. If you're wanting to spend money to get a high-end experience - go somewhere else.
