We stayed two nights at the Negresco Hotel. What a fabulous hotel in every respect. The location right across from the beach and near the old city, the palatial interior and the impeccable service made this hotel our favorite of our 14 day vacation! The color scheme in the rooms (green and pink for our room) was odd and outdated but the partial sea view made me look right past the color. When going to Nice, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
We where offered a room with a view and got a room with a view of a construction.
Breakfast is really bad. Not worth paying for it.
We asked the concierge to call us a taxi. A lady came and picked us up. When we got in I noticed the meter was showing $4,75 euros and we had not started the trip and it was troubling to me so I carefully watched the driver. We where going to the port and she hid the meter screen all the time with her hand,except when she shifted gears.
Right before we entered the port the meter showed $12 euros, but when we arrived she pushed a button that increased the fare to $26,50 Euros.
When we confronted her, she turned off the meter, she got very nervous and quickly left. We wrote an email to the hotel letting them know, and they never answered us.
Aside from this, the hotel is clean and very well located.
We were very happy with the Palais de la Mediteranee. It's in an excellent location, close to everything. Our room was comfortable, very nicely decorated, and well appointed. Good bathroom - plenty of towels and toiletries. Roll-down shutters good for sleeping. Good wifi. Friendly and helpful staff.

It has taken me a while to write this review, but I thought this hotel was brilliant. The staff were friendly and it was really close to a view. We had a balcony and could see the sea, but there was a park between us and the main road so it was quiet as well. Sure, it could do with a lick of paint, but the price and the staff more than made up for it. Customer service is of paramount importance and these guys go out of their way to make your stay pleasant.
The Meridian is a very convenient hotel primarily for the position to the beach, the shops, the old town and accessibility to bus services
It is frequently used for conferences (this being the case during my visit)
My criticism of the hotel is no use of lift to the Reception from the ground floor (only for luggage mainly) - it is long overdue to instal a lift for use of residents (particularly for older residents)
Pleasant room but should have asked for an "up grade" on arrival!
Lovely hotel and location very central. Friendly and helpful staff. Had a room for three which was really spacious. Only one negative was a horrendous smell coming from a room opposite ours on the fourth floor
Just back from a week at this hotel and will definitely be going back. It's only ten minutes walk from the train station for trips to Monte Carlo and Cannes, but only six minutes walk from the beach. Lovely big room with well equipped bathroom and separate WC. The staff were excellent and could not have been more helpful or pleasant. Plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk. Lovely rooftop pool and terrace area.
Traveling the length of the city of Nice, the lively Promenade des Anglais runs along the edge of the Bay of Angels. A popular meeting point, tourists and locals alike stroll up and down this popular promenade, dotted with hotels, restaurants, and shops, and lined with the beaches that make Nice famous. Many of the city's events and festivals are also held here, including the yearly Carnival.
