Travel Blogs from Nice
Leslie Writes: The drive from Geneva was beautiful. The villages tucked in the mountains, the castles and countryside were so worth the drive. Now in Nice, Ty and I are settled into a great little hotel just off the Promenade Anglaise. So far so good! Its warm, the Mediterranean is breathtaking, Tyler found a bar that is broadcasting American …

I don't not however think I am "tight". Anyway - just a preface. On with the blog!
We arrived in Nice just before lunch and caught our 15 minute, 40 Euro cab from the airport to the hotel (google'd and this is the price). We checked in and went up to our room to ...

We turned around to notice another wedding group waiting to enter the building and get married and then several other groups either waiting to get married or have just been married.

Wow, what a meal. We had a 6 course dinner which included some incredible dishes. The menu ranged from seafood to beef and finally two deserts. All washed down with a local wine. It was simply delicious.
We leave Nice tomorrow to move on to Avignon. We would like to come back to Nice one day to immerse ourselves in the area a little more thoroughly, but unfortunately we must leave.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Nice Riviera
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.
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.
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.

Good location,lovely hotel
stayed for 3 nights & hotel v clean.room lovely, marble floor & walls in bathroom, decor also v nice.
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.
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
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.
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...
