      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Nice Riviera

      Horrid Hotel would never return

      from

      We stayed at The Nice Riviera for 2 nights and I must say this was a bad choice, we have stayed in alot of hotels all over the world and I would never rate this as a four star hotel that's for sure, maybe a three star one at a push.

      The hotel is very dated and had a very high scented smell to it. Each floor has one of those plug in air fresheners with is very suffocating and makes you feel ill, it was so overpowering. I cannot understand why they use them maybe to cover up something?

      The staff were not particularly friendly, the rooms had very small windows and very dark furniture so it felt very gloomy and miserable. Some tea & Coffee making facilites would have been nice and welcoming. The shower was not possible to use without soaking the whole of the floor.

      For the price you are paying you can find alot nicer hotel, we stayed at The Boscolo Park for the same price and loved it and wished we had stayed there for the 2nd and 3rd night too instead of The Riviera. We will never return to this hotel.

      Anyone that thinks this is a good hotel obviously has not stayed in a decent four star hotel before.

      a 2 seat sofa is described as sleeping accomodations for 2 children up to 16!!!

      when you complain to the manager, he will scream at you.

      We had to run out after 1 night.

      Happy with our choice

      from

      Stayed 2 nights at the Riviera. We concluded that a lot of the bad reviews for Riviera were prior to a refurbishment - all rooms seem to now be decorated in the red/modern style as posted by other TripAdvisor users.

      Got a deal through Expedia on a terrace room - this was a good option, on the top story of the hotel with a good sized terrace, facing away from the beach. Everything was very clean and well presented, and bed was very comfortable.

      Hotel is a short walk from the old town and sea front, with lots of restaurants within walking distance.

      The hotel has a small but pleasant pool, rather bizarrely located next to the bar/ reception area! There is also a little sauna.

      Staff are helpful and friendly, but as with everything in Nice, all extras are charged for, e.g. breakfast, parking, key for the safe, etc are all charged as extras, and we didn't get our tea/ milk refilled!

      If you want to hire a car, be warned driving in Nice is pretty insane! Riviera has a car park for 18euros per day which is a good price for 24hrs, but be warned they charge this full rate even if you only park for 1/2 a day.

      Staff very helpful & friendly.Swimming pool & jacuzzi excellent.Would love to go back & this was good location for shops also near to old town & beach.

      Good location

      from

      Have just returned from a short stay at this hotel. I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and the bathroom was good too. (Although there was no shower screen and it was impossible have a shower and not flood the tiled floor) The towels were brillant white and fluffy. The buffet breakfast was good too a choice of ham, cheese, fruit, yoghurts, cereal, orange juice and hot drinks from a machine (but they were drinkable). It was included in the package price of the holiday. Otherwise it would have cost 15 euros which was possibly a bit pricy.

      It is very good for a short stay base as it quite close to the railway station, bus stops, shops, and about a five minute walk to the beach and old town.

      Good Value-Helpful Staff

      from

      When another hotel "lost" our reservation, we ended up at the Riviera on very short notice on a Saturday in August. Very helpful and accomodating staff for my group of 2 adults and 5 children. Gave us rooms that could house us all and priced them fairly which they did not have to do as the town was full. Rooms are clean, bathrooms are nice and beds seem new and firm. Breakfast was expensive and nothing special, but they did not charge us for the children so I have no complaint. I'm not sure why this hotel is a 4-star, as opposed to a three star, as other three stars in Nice seem of comparable quality, but this hotel is a very gooc choice in a teriffic location. By the way, for Jewish travellers, it is right across the street from the Synagogue.

      I thought 4 stars meant facilities...

      from

      OK, the location was good, and the room decor nice, but no facilities in the room! No kettle so we couldnt make tea, and the hairdryer hung worryingly from its wires in the bathroom. And they wouldnt always top up the little bottles of shampoo and shower gel. I know, I'm being petty now, but when you have to use your own you think you may as well have stayed in a hostel.... Room service- when they say "fresh" fruit salad, you don't expect it to come from a can! And no restaurant to speak of, except for breakfast- we never went there cos it was 15 euros and you can easily eat for less in town. The fire alarm went off twice, good job it didn't when we got trapped in the lift when first heading up to our room on the 4th floor- the wrong door opened, exposing... wall- and we eventually ended up in the pitch black level -2 basement. I chose to climb 4 flights of stairs on a regular basis rather than risk it again. And said stairs were like something from a badly kept hall of residence- the same cotton bud was on the same step all week, and the automatic lights would trip off on the unwary, plunging you into darkness. There was a horrible lemony smell permeating the corridors. And the pool was freezing so only braved it twice. The second time I was shivering and had to get out after 5 mins when I wanted a relaxing splash around. And I wouldn't try changing travellers cheques there- they would have charged us 8%- (you can get it changed for nothing in banks) - had there been someone on the desk who knew how to change them at the time we needed money! Oh well, at least it meant we got out a lot...

      Very good value!

      from

      This hotel was recommended to me by some relatives that stayed there a couple of months ago.

      And honestly,it was a good surprise...!!!

      I've stayed in several 4* hotels here in Nice, and although it has recently been upgraded to a 4*, which means that there are still a few things that needs some adjustments ( breakfast service, bar closing too early...), Hotel NICE RIVIERA is still the ONLY hotel in Nice that has an indoor swimming pool, a jacuzzi and a sauna, altogether with an exceptionnally good location to discover the town.

      Lobby is not of the most impressive I've seen, but is large and welcoming enough, with the bar next to reception area, and the swimming pool overlooking the lobby.

      Rooms are bright and clear, and of the usual european standards.

      Staff were courteous and helpfull, and they did speak english fluently, which is rare enough to be noticed.

      Well as it may appear from my review, that was a very good experience, and we will definitely come back nexttime we're in Nice...probably during winter time, to try the heated pool !

      Well it is always nice in Nice right?? Right! The sun is shining, the breeze is warm and we have arrived in Nice. Our flat for the next couple of nights is one block from the beach. Yeah, you can see and hear the ocean from our large balcony. We have a one bedroom flat, with a full kitchen, full bath, washer and super mag balcony where you can see/hear the ocean!

      We unpack and I can get some laundry done. Over here it is customary to have a washer and then line ...

      Flying into Nice along the Cote dÁzure was truely amazing, a perfect sunny day seeing the rich blue water lapping at the stoney coast past towns like St Topez & Mersielle and all set against the jagged backdrop of the French Alps.

      Given our previous travel mishaps the Nice league could not have gone simpler with a short bus ride taking us practically to our hotel door. Being so early we couldn't check in so we changed into our swimmers to head to the beach and for ...

      ... He was one of those unhelpful helpful people. We took our seats upstairs on the train (that's right, upstairs!) and made our way to Monaco. The monetary wealth of people here was just mind boggling. I don't think I could count number of zeros in their accounts. Even the station was like something in a james bond movie, full of marble floors and walls. Don't even get me started on their luxury yachts...some so big they had boats ...

      ... we walked by a vintage Lotus. One of the car enthusiasts in our group began a conversation with the driver and passenger, both who were from Sweden. They quickly discussed the benefits of owning a Lotus over a Ferrari and then we all went our separate ways. The night could not have been more young as we sauntered into the club at 12:30 a.m.

      Once we settled in at our table, the ridiculousness began. Men dressed like Iron Man - as in full robot gear - brought ...
