... yachts, Monte Carlo Casino, Monte Carlo Grand Prix track, grandstands and pits. The walking wasn't over as we went down by the aquarium to the port to take a quick boat shuttle across the marina towards the casino. Part of the walk to the casino included part of the Grand Prix track where we could see the tire marks of the cars.
The casino was really fancy and we needed our passports ...
... group of performers practicing for the carnival. All were dressed in costumes and suddenly, as Alexis and I stopped in order to get out of the way, a cute old man (part of the performers) approached Alexis and proceeded to kiss her on her cheeks. Then, he approached me and did the same. All this happened in a matter of seconds, but we immediately thought we were being pickpocketed. Turns out, nothing was missing - we just assumed that the nice old man got a quick of ...
... with the group of us that had been hanging out together for the last few days. We were delayed by some of the members of the group and made a late departure to our first destination of Cap d'Ail. The train arrived and we were yet again blessed with some incredible weather as we walked the cliff side path around the point to the beach which was set between two cliffs. The beach was yet again large stones, however the water nonetheless refreshing. There was a pontoon set out in the ...
... t the biggest village buit the medieval part was very inetersting and the views again were stunning. We had decided to walk down a mountain path and then catch a bus to mono, so agin our group split up with some going straight to Monaco by bus. The walk down took about 45 minutes and was a bit rough but the view from the different perspectives was worth it! At the bottom we were really hot and sticky so decided to go to the beach for a quick splash around ...

We then rode bikes back to Cici for the night, when we woke in the morning we parked in the town and had a good look around the citadel. It is very impressive, it reminded us a little of Ibiza town the way you wind up to the top amongst all the higgledy piggeldy houses. After a good look around we checked into a local caravan park so we could get some electric as the laptop has been dead for a few days ...

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...
