Nice has a wide variety of accommodation options, ranging from 1-star guesthouses to luxury hotels with panoramic views of the Med. Even at the bottom end of the market prices aren’t particularly cheap, but then again this is the French Riviera.
The hotels below have been classed into three different pricing categories:
Luxury (over €200)
Moderate (€100 to €200)
Cheap (up to €100)
These prices are per room per night and include all taxes but not breakfast.
