TravelPod Member ReviewsAC HOTEL NICE
This was a very nice hotel for a business traveler. For a couple traveling together, it might provide just a little too much intimacy.
- Clean and fairly modern
- Very friendly/helpful staff. We always tried to start in French, and they quickly saved us further embarrassment by switching to English :) Elaine went the extra steps for us. We had asked at checkin if perhaps they'd been given any details on the route and times for a bike race that was taking place in town the next day, and she said they hadn't gotten any info. But when we came back after dinner, she waved us over and presented us with some printouts of the details. What a pleasant surpise!
- Set up well for working in the room: a proper desk, with plenty of power & USB ports
- Great water pressure in shower
- a tub (narrow, but deep -- could pose a challenge for those with limited range of motion in their legs)
- an easy chair and side table provide a place to sit other than the desk or the bed
- Toiletries are nice (though no conditioner). But having a toothbrush, shoeshine, and Q-Tips in the bathroom would be a nice thing, if you need them
- both squishy and firm pillows are on the bed, which is great for those of us who do have a preference.
- just a few steps to the Promenade des Anglais, and a few more to the ocean.
- parking feels secure (if a touch pricey - €20 per day), and spots were plenty wide enough, and easy to get into.
- The "door" to the bathroom does not fit snugly, so it doesn't block noise. And there's no fan to provide masking noise, nor help remove aromas. Fine for 1 person, but if you have a companion, this is more than most people really want to share.
- There's a master switch for all lights in the room, and one for the main lights (leaving power to the bedside lights). But we couldn't figure out how to turn off the under-desk lights on their own, so we had to use the master switch, meaning we couldn't use the bedside lights once we were tucked in.
- There was a fair bit of noise coming through the windows. I checked to make sure they weren't open, and no, they were just allowing in more of the city sounds than I was really prepared for. A set of earplugs might be useful if you're a light sleeper.
- the bed was a bit more firm that I personally prefer, but my husband didn't note any discomfort.
- while I didn't *really* expect to be able to use the rooftop pool in March, it was pretty disappointing to see the algae growing in it, when we popped up to the roof, just to see what the area is like. I will presume that they put a good amount of effort into cleaning the area up before opening it for the summer. But the view to the ocean would be a great complement to a late-afternoon drink, when it's open.
- it's a pretty long walk to Vielle Ville (old town) -- 20-30 minutes, depending on your destination and route -- but it's a nice walk.
While we were there in mid-March 2016, there was some renovation going on in the lobby, rendering the normal elevators unusable. We were using the service elevators, which were fine, but it was a little disappointing to not be able to see the lobby as it is intended to be. Should be a temporary thing, though.
We didn't take breakfast or drinks in the restaurant, but it looks like a nice atmosphere.
We walked to a small boulangerie just around the corner, and had cafe and pain au chocolat for 2, for around €7.

Historical Traveler Reviews AC HOTEL NICE
We stayed here in June 2004. Having checked maps before booking, we were aware that the hotel was a good walk from the center so that was not a big deal for us. However, for the price we would have expected much better service and a better room. 'Ocean view' means barely being able to see the see through the filthy windows. 'King size bed' means two single beds with uncomfortable mattresses pushed together. The bathroom completely flooded when using the shower. A lukewarm, mediocre beer costs 11 (!) euro. Poolside service is non-existent and the staff is arrogant. We will never stay here again...
Not quite on the Promenade
Hotel is a perfectly adequate four star property with a superb roof-top swimming pool, however I would not stay there again. The hotel is not on the Promenade but slightly off it, so sea view rooms are at an angle! Location is at the far end of everything away from the Old Town and even five minutes further than the Negresco. Breakfast was decidedly average.
We stayed in this hotel for four nights in June 2004 and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is only a 10 minute bus journey from the airport and is located just off the promenade.
The staff were generally very helpful and we were upgraded to a room with a sea view. The room was spacious and very clean with a lovely marble bathroom. The rooftop swimming pool was great, with lots of sun loungers, a bar and fantastic views along the promenade.
Overall a lovely hotel, we would definitely come back here again.
Although the hotel is offering only a side seaview, the location is excellent, not far away from the center of Nice. The staff has been really helpful during my stay, the rooms are quite nicely decorated and the restaurant is excellent. I would definitely recommand this hotel for another stay in Nice.
We thought it was great value
Ok..so it was a little hard to find because it is not exactly on the promenade - but it is close enough and the room we were in had a great view of the sea. It was in walking distance of all the good restaurants and shopping and straight across the road from the beach and the cafes on the sand/rocks. Much cheaper than the other hotels directly on the promenade especially if you book on the net. The rooms were fine maybge a little outdated but the beds were king size and comfortable. Great bar and the staff were very helpful - we are going back to Nice next month and will definately stay there again.
Not on the blvd anglais
The hotel adverises a boulevard Anglais address but it is not on the Blvd. Although my stay was adequate, there are several things to be aware of: King bed means two joined twins. Some rooms have sea view, some have partial sea view and some have city view. Make it clear what you want when you book. There are some larger rooms that are right near the elevator or the oposite side of the elevator. The typical room is very small for the money. The staff is very friendly and accomodating.
The location is about a 15 minute walk from old Nice and 5 minutes from the Negresco.
Got kids under 5?-well dont stay here!! The restaurant says kids eat free, BUT they dont open tilll 7.30 pm when young kids are asleep anyway so thats a con as they will never make it to the restaurant!!!
There is NO kids menu either.......!!When asked for food to be made for him as room service at 5.00pm when he was hungry-'No, kitchens are closed!!'was the reply, 'would he like some crisps!!!!!!' They never got a single room service request right-always messed it up!! In addition the plumbing is very noisy-all the time. Its dark, and dull in decor. The only good point was the female dutch receptionist who is excellent at her job. in future we are sticking to Hiltons!!!
No Palace here...
Sounds like a "palace" but really not. It is old, on the small side and in need of renovation.
The hotel does not even face the ocean so the ocean views are all just partial ocean views.
You can't open any windows so if smoke gets under your door at night, you are in hell.
Staff was generally rude or indifferent.
Would never stay there again.
Four Stars by Four Points
Don't let the address fool you... Even though the address is Promenade des Anglais, the hotel is actually situated on a side street half a block off the promenade itself. I had a room on the sixth floor facing the (at times) noisy street behind the hotel. The room was moderately sized, nicely decorated and clean, with a comfortable king size bed and clean marble bathroom. Unfortunately, the room got rather cold at night (this was in March), and there was no heat coming from the vents. Minor details - only one English TV station - CNN. I don't perticularly enjoy "winding down" watching the news, but perhaps you do... All in all - a good experience.

We land in Nice.
The very pleasant man at Europcar helped us get a slightly smaller car than we'd originally been assigned (in Europe, smaller is usually better), and we were off to the hotel.
After one small wrong turn (my fault, not Dejo's), we found the hotel, and the parking garage (relatively spacious, really).
... we strolled the promenade which parallels the stony Mediterranean beach. Kathy just keeps saying "I'm on the French Riviera" then walks some more and says "I'm on the French Riviera". She has hit the wall and is choosing to take a snooze.
I advise not sleeping too long on day one, in order to acclimate to the local time zone. This can ...
... that day, so along the promenade were a bunch of booths of mini celebrations. We enjoyed the cooler weather and the ocean breeze, and took a few pictures of the lights of Nice. We also walked right down onto the beach, and Craig and I decided we would come back tomorrow for a swim in the Mediterranean. We had a very quiet night back at the apartment, which pretty much consisted of us getting ready for bed and setting up our fans again. Thanks for ...
... If you know me, then you know that I think of grocery shopping as a recreational activity. I love to do laps around the produce section - looking at sales, smelling the melons, picking the right shade of yellow bananas - and could spend hours reading the nutritional labels. Not that I eat super healthy (my sweet tooth is worst than most, which is why I'm a diligent flosser), but I just enjoy the art of selecting foods to create yummy things. Labels here are ...
... along side the beach in Nice. Slightly disappointed that the beachfront of pebbles rather than sand and so it does not compare to Cannes lovely beachfront. We head eastward to the Hotel Suisse. I had read about a lookout point above the hotel that gives really good views over Nice and the coastline. Most people climb the gruelling steps to the top but I knew there was an elevator that would take you there but it's not very prominent and ...
