The hotel staff were very helpful and courteous. My room was on the lowest floor, so didn't have the panoramic views of the rooms on the upper floors. Nevertheless, it was very clean, luxurious and comfortable, with a private balcony. I had excellent broadband internet service in my room. Breakfast was sumptuous and superb. Hotel is located in the hills, about a 10 minutes jog from the promenade. I liked the quiet location.

The hotel has a wonderful view of the sea, and it's spacious and well decorated rooms give it an upmarket feel.

It's a fairly easy walk into town, although coming back uphill in the heat can be a bit taxing!

Breakfast is good and the staff are helpful. My only complaint would be if you return to the hotel after a certain time, you have to get let in by a woman who always looks extremely put out at being disturbed!

A great location in a calm and chic neighbourhood on the top of Nice. The Hotel is a wonderdul house in the typical Riviera style of the turn of the century palace (formerly statehome of author Sacha Guitry). The view on Nice and the Bay is spectacular.
Very calm and quiet. Ideal for rest and leisure, style mixes with an oriental feel (Indonesian gazebo and details in decoration).
Staff was very friendly and useful in where to eat and what to visit.
We will come back

Staff not very helpful. When checking in no information about hotel shared. We had no lights on our floor after checking in and front desk person who spoke no English showed us to room with a torch. Lights remained off. T.V. not working first 2 days. When checking out Manager most unpleasant. Charged us for Breakfast's during our stay which we never had. In telling him he argued and said we did have. I explained we didn't know there was a buffet and he said "it was written in the room, and I should have known, all French Hotels had breakfast. Breakfast was optional so I don't think he handled it nicely. I was told off by him and left never to return to that hotel. Room itself average, view very nice but up a difficult hill. It rained and hill was very hard to get up and down with the water flow. I would always stay somewhere more central and not up in the hills. Difficult as no taxi's for dark evenings.

  • Liked — very nice view if you get the right room
  • Disliked — balcony opening window for fresh air. View nice but corner room overlooked roof tops below
