We drove up to Nice from Toulon this morning and, in a word, we're not impressed. We checked into the hotel and found that the room that I'm pretty darned sure was supposed to have a balcony or patio had neither. So, for a combination of points and money, we have a standard room looking out on the apartments behind. Not exactly what we thought we …
... and this giant covered area that's just a mirror above you. We also stumbled into all these people building massive structures, like legitimate buildings from cardboard boxes. We're not really sure why... But they're building them all and then ripping them all down on Sunday. So naturally we joined in. We spent some time just taping up boxes for them to then put together and form buildings. It was pretty cool. We thought ...
... up a tree and grandad had to help him get down. Theo spotted an hot air balloon in the sky and got a bit excited. He wanted a ride in it but grandma and grandad were being scaredy cats. 31st August 2013 We have been busy today.... Beaune in the morning - to walk round a big market without actually buying anything, and Dijon in the afternoon. Dijon is ...

That was the excellent mood I was in all weekend too, just easy and happy and carefree :) I'm sure it had nothing to do with the weed we smoked most of the weekend either, hehe! Biggest happy cloud chill out weekend. Not a care in the world. So I arrived in Nice at about 9.20pm actually and met up with Guilliame, and his friends Nico and William. And we had a few cheeky drinks in the car and then went to a dance ...
Time to laze in the sun with the rich and famous!
Leaving Lauterbrunnen we had a busy day of travelling - had breakfast in Switzerland, lunch in Italy and dinner in France!
Arriving in Nice (rhymes with peace not rice) quite late we had dinner at local restaurant, mingled with some others at our hotel before heading out to Waynes Bar in town where we met up with the rest of the tour group. The bar was manic and completely packed - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Nice
Le Meridien is an excellent choice when staying in Nice. Make sure to request a high floor because this hotel is all about the view. The view from our room was simply incredible--mountains, gardens and the beach directly in front of our room! Very romantic (I stayed here for my honeymoon)Another reason to stay here is the location. It is simply the best location in Nice--right on the beach and near the old city. You can't beat it. Also top-tier is the roof top pool--although small, the pool and restaurant are very upscale and have fabulous views.
Excellent location but beware the extra costs
When I booked this hotel, I explicitly asked if there was an additional charge for using the pool and was told it is free. However, the reality is that whilst use of the pool is indeed free, there is nowhere to sit next to it other than the sun beds on the terrace, for which there is a charge of €10/day (assuming you arrive early enough to reserve one). Also, a small bottle of water is available for €8 at the pool, €6 from the minibar or 40 cents from the local supermarket - the supermarket version doesn't come with a slice of lemon but I remain unconvinced that it justifies the price difference.
Other than that, the buffet breakfast is good and the location is perfect.
Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in August. Outside appearance of hotel was not too promising, but once inside, very nice. We booked a classic double room, no specific view. There were a few problems with the room:
1: the double bed was actually two beds pushed together.
2: The bath was a little dirty.
3: The standard of the room was lower than what i expected for a 4 star hotel.
But other than that, hotel staff were friendly and efficient, breakfast was good. The restaurant on top floor terrace serves delicious food but expensive. Though the best thing about hotel was the location!!! Brilliant because place massena, where all the cafes are found is just behind the hotel, and the old town is just 5 mins walk away.
Overall we had a BRILLIANT stay.
What a rip off!
We booked this four star hotel partly for location and partly for facilities. Location can not be faulted but the facilities - for which the hotel gets the four stars - are a complete rip off. Guest have to pay about £5?/$8 to use the gym at any convenient time, and pay £8/$12 to use a sunbed on the roof top terrace, which may not sound like a great deal of money but when one has already paid a premium for a 4 star hotel one doesn't expect hidden premiums for what is then standard. Mini bar and bar prices were far more expensive that usual as well.
A disaster - should have checked out ...
A fun experience for my wife, myself and my 5 year old. Gave us a free upgrade to a superior room with a sea view at a low internet price.
Food was very good. Room and hotel as a whole were a little tired, but staff tried hard and the location is great.
We enjoyed the rooftop heated pool, especially our young daughter, and could have easily stayed longer.
I would recommend it if the price is right - if you are paying rack rate or even close, its not worth the very big bucks!
I stayed at Le Meridien Nice for my honeymoon. I was able to book a Deluxe Room Sea View on the internet. I called Le Meridien to confirm that I will be getting a Sea View room and they reassured me that this is what I am getting. The second I walked into the room, all I sea is the mediterranean sea. Breathtaking beginning to my stay. The room decoration was typical to waterfront hotels. No bells and Whistles but who needs that when you have the sea in front of you. I loved this hotel and its scent that smelled so fresh. The breakfast buffet was very good and i looked forward to it every morning. Again, no bells and whistles there but it had all i needed. Eggs, granola, cheeses, awesome juice, yogurt, tasty bread, cold cuts... so basically no need for more than that, it's enough to start you off and if that was not enough there are plenty of Cafe's behind the hotel. By far the best location, even better than the Negresco which is a bit further down. Rooms were clean and the service was good. I am very picky when it comes to hotels. This one scored high with me. I would definitely stay there again.
Meridien is Ok
The Meridien is OK, but the rates reflect the location. The room was standard, and there was no view. You are paying for LOCATION. The location was great. So - Great location, so-so hotel.
I stayed there for 5 nights around Christmas. It was a package deal that I booked from expedia.com for a little over $2000 USD (including air). The hotel has a very good location. I had a seaview room on the 9th floor. The carpet is busting at the seams throughout the hallway.
Nice hotel in Nice
The hotel was a nice experience. Extremely well located and especially if you manage to get a sea view room on the upper floors you will probably have the best panorama view in Nice. You can see plains leaving and ships coming all the time and at the same time you can enjoy the pulse of the Nice night life under your feets. Worth a try !
Just returned from 3 1/2 weeks in Europe. We stayed in 4-5 star hotels in Venice, Rome, Florence, Rapallo, Nice, Montreux, and Paris. Of all the hotels we stayed at in Europe this was one of the most disappointing. The location was good right on Promenade des Anglais, in the heart of the city, facing the Mediterranean sea. But the accomodations were not very clean and the buffet breakfast was sub-standard. One good comment, had some of the best french onion soup of my life from room service.
