Weather in Nice

Nice enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate so expect plenty of sunshine, mild winters and moderate rainfall.

Spring (March to May) sees temperatures increase gradually from 12°C (54°F) to 17°C (63°F). May is a great time to visit Nice if you want to soak in the sun but avoid the masses.

Summer (June to August) is hot with plenty of sunshine. This is the best time to visit Nice if you want to swim in the warm ocean and enjoy great festivals. However, hotel prices also go up in line with the thermometer (averaging around 27°C/82°F in July).

Autumn (September to November) is quieter in Nice. October and November are also the wettest months. With temperatures dropping to 13°C (55°F) in November, be sure to pack some warm jumpers for the cool evenings.

Winter (December to February) is mild with temperatures hovering around 10°C (50°F), attracting sun-seekers from across Europe.

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 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.

Westminster Hotel & Spa

This good-value 4-star is one of the more affordable grand old waterfront hotels. All the usual perks including a private beach and wonderful belle époque architecture are covered at the Westminster with minimum fuss. Be sure to book a sea-view room for breakfast on the Promenade des Anglais terrace.

Spity Hotel

On the site of the former Hi Hotel, this chic accommodation maintains the former’s emphasis on elegant and ultra-modern design. Within one of the 38 sleek, industrial bedrooms, you’ll find lava stone tubs and neon walk-in showers. Amenities include an organic breakfast buffet, private beach, day spa, lounge bar, and a rooftop terrace offering panoramic views of Nice.

 

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.
