Hi Katniss51,

Had been to France last year and Nice is definitely a beautiful place to visit.I stayed at Boscolo Exedra.Its a beautiful white colour hotel in central Nice and has all-day dining options, a spa and a rooftop pool terrace. 10-minute walk to the train station, as well as to the seaside and to the Old Town with its flower market and opera house. A tramway line that links the hotel directly to the airport.

Highlight for me was the multi-sensory showers, the ice fountains and the indoor pool with massaging water jets.Double rooms from €150 as I visited in low season. The only problem was that the breakfast was not included and had to pay extra.I was totally in love with their BClub rooftop terrace which was great for lunches and evenings.

Another good thing is that there were no steps up to the hotel and the public areas, including restaurants and rooftop, are accessible by ramp, as I had my friend accompanying me who had accessibility constraints.All in all it was a great stay and had all the amenities and much more than expected.

Would highly recommend it.

Just returned from Nice. We stayed at Marriott's Le Meridien right on the Promanade des Anglais. Very nice hotel and great views of water in a.m. and evening. We stayed there on the back end of our trip and easily got on tram to airport for our flight back to the states. On the first part of our trip we booked an apartment on Rue Dante in Gambetta area of Nice. It had great access to tram and Promanade. Apartment allowed us to store cold water and croissants, have coffee when we wanted it in the a.m. also had washer if you prefer to have those amenities. Walked right by Marriott's AC hotel.

We recently stayed at Hotel Beau Rivage and I would definitely stay there again. .Aside from being very nice, clean and comfortable, the location can't be beat for the price.

Having said that, when I go back to the Riviera I will be staying in Menton because I fell completely in love with it.

We Stayed At Hotel Les Cigales and really enjoyed our stay, nothing fancy, just a nice clean room, comfy bed and a nice rooftop Terrance with just some outdoor furniture were we liked to hang out . There is a small grocery store right across the street and just a few blocks to the beach/promenade and within walking distance to the train station. We walked to dinner and to the tram.

Bxrlover, wasn’t Menton wonderful, exploring the little lanes of Italian colors? I did it as a day trip and agree that it would be nice to stay overnight.

I just finished the Loire to South of France tour (Sept 25-Oct 7) and really liked the Mercure Hotel Nice Marche aux Fleurs. Nice room, good breakfast, and great location. Yes, it is a European chain, but no complaints from me after the smaller hotels we stayed at earlier in the tour. The price will depend on what time of year you are going.

I’ll add another recommendation for Mecure Hotel Nice Marche Aux Fleurs. Like Jill, we stayed here on our RS Loire to the South of France tour in 2013. Great to hear it’s still a recommended Hotel after all these years! The location, and beautiful views of the Promenade and sea were incredible. Enjoy your stay!
