Gorgeous city

A travel blog entry by mclellanlauren on May 03, 2014

Had a lovely 2 nights in Nice. Perfect size town to explore. First night found an Italian restaurant and enjoyed pizza in an outside seat as it was a warm evening. The waiter liked my French and started to speak to me in French which was funny as I could only say a couple of words, must have said them well.
Had a wander around after dinner, …

Nice sure is pretty nice

A travel blog entry by spotsyinfrance on Jul 02, 2014

LOL... The kids are probably groaning at my pun ... Today's entry (the last one) is back to the norm, not so much of a creative writing piece, as was yesterday's. �� It was our second day in la Côte d'Azur, and our final day in France and we loved it! Yesterday was filled with the train ride and some time exploring the city, but today, we had even better views and experiences - fitting for our last day ...

My day exploring Nice

... also served eggs and bacon and as I had been craving a "normal" breakfast I jumped at the chance. I made my way back to the start of the walk and for the next 2.5hrs were entertained by an Argentinian guy who worked at the hostel who was running the tour. We walked the streets of Nice stopping at various points to take photos of statues, buildings and got time to roam around the markets. There were also some spectacular ...

... a man angrily entered our room. He closed the window, threw his luggage onto the floor, a bag onto his bed and began moving around his pillow and throwing additional blankets onto the bed. Alexis and I just sat there paralyzed. Why had he shut the window?! And why was there a man in our room?! Wasn't this a woman only room?! And why was he so angry at life?!

Turns out that our room was co-ed (just like the bathrooms at KFC, as Alexis and I walked into the ...

... all cleared up.. So we were facing an unknown amount of time on a stranded train in the middle of nowhere! But thankfully, it was cleaned up a lot quicker than first predicted and we were on our way after like I said, an hour and a half..
I unfortunately happened to be on the correct side to see the gory scene as we passed it... it wasn't very nice.. but thankfully they had covered most of it up.

So we got through to Cannes ...

    Nice hotel easy to find both when out walking or by car. Bit of a hike to the old city but close to the central shopping and eateries. Lovely roof top breakfast room with huge range of food. Nice to be able to eat inside or out. Loved Nice, beautiful city two days was enough time to see most things, jump on the little train down on the promenade, very worthwhile.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Splendid Hotel & Spa Nice

    Enjoyable stay-value for money

    from

    Stayed for 3nights from 5th Dec- 8th Dec. Booked through hotelopia and had a great deal. Room was clean and comfortable. Very good value for money. All staff were very helpful. I would recommend this hotel.

    Forget the breakfast

    from

    The restaurant is run by another company and they have a relaxed attitude to customer service. Complaints to the hotel reception cut no ice. Ditch breakfast at busy times of year - they treat all guests as if they were on cheap package tours. Definitely more Faulty Towers than Splendid.

    Average Hotel - 3 star more realistic

    from

    Upon arrival we were assigned a room which was at best described as dire. It was drab and in need of some urgent re-decoration. However, after stating our concerns we were moved to a 'Deluxe' room which was much better and had a big balcony (although still only a 3 star standard). The room was kept spotlessly clean by the very friendly maid service. The bed was very uncomfortable and we both came home with back ache. I found it difficult to see where the non smoking rooms were as our 'non smoking' room had 2 ashtrays!

    The hotel is close to the beach and the facilities in the hotel nominated beach are very good and make for a relaxing (if expensive) day out.

    I did not try the hotel restaurant but did have a few drinks at the 8th floor bar. I could not quite believe the prices - 7 pounds for a single shot of

    amaretto liqueur.

    All in all we were disappointed by the hotel and Nice as a resort - very expensive, difficult to find anything authentically French to eat and almost certainly I felt it to be a tourist trap.

    Disappointed

    from

    Booked after reading the reports on this site. Unfortunately, although I requested a non smoking room . I was given a smoking room. Room was dark, small and in urgent need of an update.

    Food at the hotel restaurant was excellent but don,t expect to put on weight as the portions were very small.

    Nice terraced pool and bar.

    Friendly and helpful staff

    In my opinion more 3 star than 4 star hotel

    Spendid "spendid "

    from

    Excellent rooms with balconies, 5 mins stroll to promenade, quiet location. Ideally situated.

    Rooftop pool small but fantastic views, staff very helpfull, would stay again.

    French Riveria ...

    from

    Staff at hotel are friendly and helpful.

    We managed to get a deluxe room at the hotel and it was large with a balcony with a lovely view. Clean too but bit disappointed on the soft pillows.

    Though I would be careful cos on having a quick glimpse at other deluxe rooms I dunno if they are all that big !

    Thought for the money they were charging it was a bit on the expensive side and would have said it was more a 3 star than 4 star.

    Be careful of the private beach ! Hotel guests are supposed to have a discount for the chairs¶sols but this changed daily from 24 to 29 euros. Normal price is 29 euros.

    Nice Hotel In Nice

    from

    Nice clean hotel,5 mins from promenade and beach. Great rooftop pool for sunbathing early morning,helpful staff and would stay again.

    Quality Hotel

    from

    The hotel splendid is conveniently located near the beach and the promenade des angles. It's a bit of a hike to Old Towne or the Train station, but not too bad. The pool and jacuzzi on the roof provide a great view of the city. The room was nice and it had a balcony. I would stay there again.

    Lovely hotel

    from

    I stayed here with my husband in August 2003 and we both thought it was a wonderful hotel. We received a free upgrade to a deluxe room on arrival which was great. The hotel was reasonably priced with friendly staff and lovely, clean, big room with balcony and large bathroom with jacuzzi bath. Having a swimming pool was a big plus and the views from the roof terrace were fantastic. Great location, really near to the beach but in a quiet area of town. Highly recommended and we would definitely stay here again.

    Hotel Splendid

    from

    Really enjoyed the hotel and the friendly staff. Would return. However, the food at the hotel's Chez Hugo resturant was very poor and overpriced. The 'chips' served with the tiny portions of fish were exactly like MacDonalds and literally were heaped on the plate completely hiding the tiny portion of fish. The steak was miniscule and overdone. The hotel waived the price of two meals but it spoilt the evening for both couples. But I must add that the waiter was very good and friendly. This may, of course, been an 'unlucky' night, but I wouldn't chance it again.
