      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Westminster Nice

      Not as nice as I expected

      from

      the hotel was a bit disappointing and not what I would consider a 4star. It is in a fabulous location - close to all and very safe. The first room I was given was horrible but after consulting the front desk, the manager upgraded me to a sea view room without hassle. Staff pleasant and breakfast was ok. Overall, ok but not worth the money.

      Not very pleasant at all !

      from

      Stayed at The Westminster for 2 nights last month and not a pleasant experience. The hotel commands an excellent position directly on the sea front and a convenient walk away from the main shops and flower market. The external facade is beautiful but inside you will find a run down, dilapidated and very tatty hotel. Our room was an absolute disgrace with a 1970's shower room, a totally useless free standing a/c unit from the same era and 2 silly little beds pushed together. We complained straight away to be advised that no refurbished rooms were available and anyway, as we had booked through an agency that we were only entitled to the crummiest rooms they had. I would steer well clear of The Westminster....a 2 star at best !

      Cozy room with great view

      from

      The small fifth floor room with teensy balcony gave an amazing view both night and day of the sea and action on the Promenade; the central location was perfect. With the exception of the constant daily problem of exchanging travelers checks or cash for Euros, the staff seemed perfunctorily helpful.

      The buffet breakfast was wonderful, and the quiet little bar a joy in the late afternoon.Original paintings and antiques interesting. Would definitely stay there again.

      Great view

      from

      I saved Nice for the last leg of our trip. I made reservations at this hotel after reading various reviews of this hotel and others. We had an upper floor room that had a great view. The room was nice and the bathroom looked as though it had recently been renovated. It was great for bubble baths after a long day of sight seeing. Location was great, service was good, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The breaksfast buffet was very nice and had a large assortment of breakfast food to choose from. I would stay there again and would recommend it to my friends.

      Rooms a bit disappointing

      from

      Stayed 4 nights at the Westminster in March 2002. We had 2 different rooms - neither were of 4 star standard although the view of the sea was exceptional. Breakfasts were quite good.

      I wouldn't recommend the Westminster.

      Great time in Nice

      from

      Just got back from 7 nights in the Westminster in Nice (July 2003). Had a great time, room was lovely, newly renovated and very clean. We initially got a small room but when we asked were there any bigger rooms, we got one no problem. Staff were helpful, concierge and house staff exceptionally friendly, restaurant staff were typically French! The hotel is in a great location for visiting the centre of Nice and there are some lovely restaurants in the streets around it.

      Really enjoyed the Westminster

      from

      We had a fine stay here - one of the new rooms in a great location.

      Very clean, helpful and friendly.

      A rather sad hotel but could improve

      from

      With location, presence and impressive underlying architecture and decor, this hotel lives off its history and reputation as one of the top class hotels in Nice. An honest re-appraisal would indicate a rather shabby, even run-down, establishment that wants to remain as a respected Nice hotel but that falls a long way short of the very best. I stayed in June 2003 for four nights with my wife. Location is excellent for sea view and walking to centre attractions and restaurants etc. but one must be aware of a major dual road separating the hotel from the promenade and beach (its true also for most of the big hotels). This is not so much a practical problem as a noise problem (even in front view premium rooms), which, despite the claim of soundproofing, the noise is still evident throughout the night. The balcony? Forget it - even without the noise the pigeons messed it up for you. The exterior and public rooms generally maintain the historic ambience but are in need of re-decoration. Generally, the hotel is quiet and dull with few visitors to the bar and restaurant observed during my stay - consequently we always went elsewhere for meals and drinks. The breakfast room (a magnificent room) is dreadfully warm with no attempt made to alleviate this by opening windows, use of fans or anything. Meanwhile our bedroom, whilst very acceptable in space and facilities, was tired looking - the beds and carpet were near end of life in my opinion, the wallpaper seams peeling. Slow refurbishment may be in progress (but no evidence of this, except a sign, during my stay in June 2003). The staff are, it seems, as confused as the hotel is of status. Whist most were superficially helpful, some clearly were wanting you to go away with any real challenge or problem - and we had a few basic things like hiring a car and obtaining a taxi - in difficult circumstances - they didnt deal with. I had to organise these things myself. If youve stayed at a good class hotel elsewhere this lack of service will bemuse you. In summarial and no inherent constraints to be so much better. Its not a bad hotel but disappointing considering its star rating, compared to its promotional material and now comparing with other hotels. Maybe a management problem in part, maybe a financial constraint to improve the décor, but certainly the biggest hurdle is in the staff culture - currently three star falling well short.

      This is a 4 star hotel?

      from

      This hotel is very well located just a block away from

      the Hotel Negresco across the street from the Promenade. From the outside it appears to be a very grand, elegant, 4-star hotel. However, once we arrived we found it a little different. The hotel is in need of a total renovation. It appears that they might be doing this renovation little by little. For example, our room had a card key, a new door, and a refinished bathroom, while others in parts of the hotel did not. The carpet is in pretty bad shape, as was the only elevator... However, what really disappointed us about this hotel was our bed. Our double room came with two twin beds joined together, which normally is just fine,

      but in this case, one of the matresses was just awful. Reception was unable to remedy this situation, so we had to live with it. The street outside is also very noisy, so if you have a sea-view, don't plan on leaving the windows open.

      With all that said, we did only pay $125 US per night and had one great view of the water and a great location... so I really shouldn't complain too much!

      Oh, I forgot to mention that we tried some food here that
      was typical for this area. We all tasted Socca, and I had a Nicoise salad too. The
      others had ordered another specialty as well, but I forget the name for it. It
      was a a type of spread for little toast pieces.

      ... and I explored the gothic quarter which has certainly whet my appetite for a return trip... There is something reassuringly European about getting lost as you wander through narrow, high-walled, cobble-stoned streets. A final paella and sangria double act helped us wave goodbye to Barcelona and we arrived in Nice with hopes for nice weather. Our seaside location had us smiling as we awoke to a cloudless sky this morning and we set out for a walk. And we walked. And ...

      ... company....after numerous text messages and phone calls...the plane finally landed in Nice at 11:00 AM - the transfer company picked them up at the airport and drove them to the ship in Monoco which was 1 hour away. The Jodi, Greg, and Maddie team arrive at the ship at 2:30 PM - whew - wearing the same clothes they had on when they left Portland. ALL IS GOOD.
