Hotel Negresco

The most exclusive address in town is an old but not fusty place that has elegantly idled by the Promenade des Anglais since 1913. Recent major refurbishments have kept this grande dame ahead of the game, but the antiques and furniture collectables angle the atmosphere towards a bygone era.

Hôtel Nice Beau Rivage

At only a two-minute walk from the seafront and a three-minute walk from Opéra de Nice, its little wonder this chic hotel was once frequented by a number of famous writers and artists. Today, the refurbished building offers a private beach, a whiskey bar, and a classy outdoor lounge for reclining during the summer months.

 

Hotel Villa St Hubert

Although it’s not in the city centre, this homely hotel is close to a tram that leads directly to Place Masséna, making it a great value for your money. Some of the traditionally furnished rooms have balconies with views across the rooftops, and breakfast is served in a charming tree-shaded courtyard.

Palais de la Méditerranée

This beautiful art deco hotel has some of the best views in town, which are best enjoyed from the swimming pool on the terrace above the Promenade des Anglais. Elegant rooms boast smooth contemporary decor and views out over the sea. A sauna, gym, and Turkish bath add to the 5-star allure.

Hôtel Le Meurice

Less than a minute away from the Promenade des Anglais, and within staggering distance of the nearby bars, Hotel Meurice offers comfortable and convenient accommodation at a reasonable price. The service is excellent—the staff goes out of their way to please guests—and while rooms are a little small, they’re finished beautifully.

Hotel Windsor

You’re as far from chain-hotel uniformity as you can get in this boutique townhouse: inside, local artists have turned each room into a work of art. To top it off, there’s an adorable garden with a pool – a godsend when the beach gets busy at the height of summer.
