Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Nice
Rooms of average space, but with all comforts (including a kettle if you ask for a superior room). Staff very welcoming, friendly and get out of their way to help you. I had a small air conditioning problem in my room when I first checked in and in the space of 20 minutes they had showed me 3 alternative rooms to pick from. There is a small gym, a hammam and a sauna (all free of charge for guests!) which are open until late in the evening. Central, 10 mins walk from train station and 5 mins walk from main shopping area. In a nice tree lined avenue and althoug central, rooms are quiet. Beds extremely comfortable! Bathrooms spacious. Good prices. I'll definitely stay there again if I travel to Nice again.
Very nice hotel
The Holiday Inn is about a 10 minute walk to the train station, which was great because I had lots of day trips planned. My room overlooked the front of the hotel which is on a busy street but full of shade trees for nice walks. The location is also excellent for walking to the main shopping district and not too far from the promenade.
The staff I spoke with all knew English and they were very friendly. I didn't have breakfast at the hotel but there's a bakery about a block away and a Casino grocery store about 8-10 blocks away.
My room had two double beds, a desk, two chairs and a side table. I appreciated the fact that one needs to use their room keycard to access the elevator -- a nice safety feature.
We just returned from staying three nights at this hotel. While our room was not that large, it was very comfortable. The staff was incredibly helpful and fluent in English. They went out of their way to help arrange a boating trip we wanted to take to Monaco. The location isn't too bad, it's only a short walk to the Promenade. Even a shorter walk to shopping and restaurants. This hotel was recommended to us by someone who lives in Nice and we were not disappointed.
Very enjoyable stay
I have to say overall I was very impressed by this hotel.
There was only one minor complaint, that the hot water in the morning wasn't very hot. Seems like unlike other hotels I've stayed in there isn't unlimited hot water, if lots of people have showers in the morning, they run out!
We had a standard room which wasn't huge but had enough space for a wardrobe, desk, large TV and a couple of chairs, the windows occupied one entire wall of the room and could be opened fully.
The bed was without doubt the most comfortable I've ever slept in! And huge too.
Of the TV channels there was Sky News, BBC World and CNBC available in English.
The bathroom was a similar size to most hotels, with a good sized bath, although did feel a little cramped due to having to fit in a bday. The marble flooring was nice.
We didn't eat in the hotel as €18 for breakfast is excessive!
The location couldn't be better! It was away from the bustle of the Promenande d'Anglias but only 5 minutes walk from the main pedestrian area with many shops and resaurants. And about 10-15 minutes walk from the main train station. The street is tree lined and has relatively little traffic.
The desk staff seemed quite efficient, they knew who we were as soon as we walked through the door and before we said anything! Never did work out how they did that..
If we were going to return to Nice then we would 100% choose this hotel again. The only thing we might do is choose a larger room for slightly more space.
Truly an excellent Hotel
After spending some time trying to select a hotel in Nice that would be suitable for a family with two children I eventually hit the jackpot. This is a brilliant hotel for those who wish to be centrally located. This hotel is close to the promonade, shopping and eating areas ( approx 5 mins). It is approx 15 mins walk to the old town and the train station. The staff here were extremely helpful and could not do enough for us. When we arrived we were given an executive room which was a lot bigger than the standard rooms. Breakfast was brilliant. If you get the opportunity to stay here you will not be disappointed.
Good place to experience Nice!
My wife and infant daughter stayed at the Holiday Inn Nice in July 2004. Overall we enjoyed the experience and the hotel. It was a little difficult to find in that the street it's on is a one way street and we couldn't find a local who knew where it was. The staff was very kind, helpful, and accomodating to my family which was great. They even helped me load up our bikes on the back of our SUV when we left. Our room was a good size (nearly American hotel standards) with double beds and a bathroom with bath of good size. We were on one of the upper floors which gave us a nice view of the rooftops of Nice. The breakfast buffet was ok (typical European type). The hotel is nicely placed only blocks from the Promenade de Inglais and shopping. Each hotel in Nice has a section of the beach reserved for their guests, so be sure to ask the staff which section they have if you want to go to the beach. We thought it was a bit crowded so we simply took a bus tour and strolled around. Price: about average for most hotels in the region at 155 Euro a night.
Great Hotel, Great City, Perfect for weekend
Going to Nice? This is a great place to stay.
You must understand that Nice has literally hundreds of hotels, you cannot possibly evaluate them all so don't try!!! There are several key things and I think the Holiday Inn has it just right.
Location - GREAT, about three minutes from cafes, five minutes from the main shopping street, across the road from a friendly church (Eglise reformme de France), 10 minutes from the train station. (Across the road from the popular Le Grimaldi.)
Hotel Staff - only wonderful, treated us so well! Great help and advice, organised a trip for us to Monaco and Eze. Gave me room when I arrived at 11 am without fuss and really genuinely friendly.
Price- looked around and found great this place very competitive, seriously you can pay anything for a hotel room in Nice. Perfect for a busy week-end, perhaps you might want a pool if you were staying for weeks but I felt the value was great.
Some tips - best patisserie in Nice if not France is about 50m from the hotel called Multari, simply unbelievable, you can see ovens firing below with produce that makes my mouth water remembering it!
Hope it helps as I almost went mad choosing a hotel before I went!
Lovely Hotel, Unlovely shuttle driver
We generally liked the Holiday Inn resort in Nice-Port St. Laurent. The view was beautiful, the location very nice, and the beach was excellent.
However, we had one big complaint. We were waiting for the shuttle to take us to the Cote d'Azur airport in the morning, and had been told to be in the lobby at 6:25 on August 15, 2004. A rumpled driver eventually showed up at 7:00A.M. with no apology or explanation, just a sheepish grin. Because of this late shuttle, we were in a huge slow line at the airport. We were not at all pleased, and will write a letter directly to management.
Spending a week on the superb city of Nice, I have choosen to stay at the Holiday Inn.
This hotel have a superb location, a very short walking distance from the beaches and the Old City, I was delighted with the level of comfort provided. My room was nicely decorated and quiet equipped. The staff attitude was very outstanding. This Hotel will be definitively my place for my next Nice visit.
Very rude staff!
Small hotel, located not very far from Nice center. The hotel is not too bad, although at the low-end of the H-Inns chain, but the staff was extremely rude and incapable! I asked for a bottle opener and they could not find one! It took over half an hour to check out, they made a good number of mistakes in the invoice, they charged me for around 20 (!) mini-bar drinks that I had never consumed, and finally they charged my Visa card twice! I had to call the manager and sort it out...

Another early start this morning as we wanted to beat the crowds so we could try and "straighten" the Leaning Tower of Pisa before everyone got there, we were successful in beating the crowds but were unable to fix the lean. We then were off for a 3 hour drive to Monaco, the home of the Monaco Grand Prix. The Grimaldi family have been monarchs in …
Today started in a very relaxing manner, no wake up call, no set time for bags or breakfast just a chance for a sleep in. We ventured out around 11:30 for some brunch just down the road, where we both had a bruschetta done the French way. We then had a few minutes to grab our stuff ready for our meeting time at 1:30pm, to a little town in the hills …
Today we woke up early to take a mini-van tour (8 people) to the coastal towns of Cote d'Azur and the Principality of Monaco.
We met our guide, Victor, when he picked us up at the hotel. He spoke excellent English and is actually a Ukrainian transplant who settled in France many years ago. He picked us up at gave us a tour around Nice …
Today I had a long day at the conference, but Dad joined me for an early breakfast and we hastily decided to take an early morning trip to the famous Nice Market, Cours Saleya. Known as the flower market, vendors set up stalls and rows of fresh flowers sold to locals and businesses, as well as the most amazing array of fresh vegetables, flavored …
Today we lived life like the French. A little bit later breakfast, and a trip to the train station to "wing it" and buy some same day train tickets to Monaco to go to the Musee Oceanographique which is a huge museum and aquarium founded by Prince Albert of Monaco in the early 1900s, and where Jacques Yves Cousteau was the director for many (I think …
