Hotel in Nice, France

Two of us will be in Nice, France for two nights prior to boarding the Viking ship for a cruise.

We need a hotel room for August 16 and 17, 2018. Do you know of a reasonable and nice hotel that we could reserve ASAP.
Thanks.
Theresa

It is high season in the French Riviera but Booking.com shows some availability for your dates. We don’t know your price point or any preferences so check on that website.

Try Hotel Les Cigales. It is a RS recommendation and we enjoyed our stay there. They have availability for your dates but I would book ASAP.

I stayed at Hotel Solara on the pedestrian only street 5 min from Place Masena and public transportation (tram, bus) and 5 min walk from Promenade des Anglais. Basic hotel, clean, nice staff terrific location. Would definitely stay there again. Don't know what 'reasonable' means to you but the rates here were very reasonable to me.

Note most cruises leave from VilleFranche-sur-Mer or from the Old Port in Nice. Just a thing to keep in mind.

I suggest looking at kayak.com or hotelscombined.com or any similar aggregator of your choice for the target dates. I suggest looking for the few blocks surrounding Place Massena, the Carre d'Or or the Old Town. The former is roughly bordered by the Promenade des Anglais, Blvd Gambetta, Blvd Victor Hugo, Rue Alberti and the Promenade du Paillon (Avenue Felix Faure). This will keep you central to the things you may wish to see and keep you handy to the transport links in case you want to take a day trip.

Some other moderate choices I've seen recommended include the Hotel Windsor, the Nice Garden Hotel, Suites Massena, Hotel Suisse or the Mercure Promenade or Marche aux Fleurs, but there are many others as well.

If you choose Les Cigales (or the Windsor), the bakery on the corner has very good morning baguettes and there are some nice restaurants down Rue Dalpozzo, including Coco e Rico.

Gooster-that bakery on the corner opens late! We had planned on going there for breakfast before walking to the train station around 8am and the bakery was closed. Only place we found open between the hotel and the train station was across the street from the train station and the Paul bakery outside the train station. I was surprised that bakeries don't open early like. This was on a Friday.

@Letizia -- I thought they opened at 7 am normally? (We tend to be late risers, though, hah). There is another one on Rue de France, about a half a block to the right of Dalpozzo. J. Multari I know is open from 6 am (a couple of locations, one near the Solara).
