If you could choose one hotel to stay in anywhere in France, I suggest this might be top of the list! It sits back from the hussle and bustle of central Nice and yet it offers access to the tourist areas of Nice with a 15 minute downhill walk. Rooms facing the sea have a beautiful view over central Nice with stunning views to the bay beyond. Breakfast is extra but is a must! Spend an hour or more enjoying everything that breakfast has to offer - including chatting with Christina, who is a wonderful hostess and cannot do enough to make your stay a special one. This goes for the entire front-of-house staff too. They will advise on the several excellent restaurants nearby, where to catch the #15 bus and when the tourist attractions are not open. This hotel and its staff have to be experienced - simply special!

My wife and two friends spent 5 nights here in mid August. Staff are very friendly (David especially). Quiet location. Rooms comfortable without being “flash”. Beds are VERY comfortable. Would benefit from having coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast was lovely but a bit on the expensive side at €20pp. Would definitely return. Only downside is the walk up the hill to it!

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Le Petit Palais in Nice. It is not in the middle of Nice, so expect to walk 15 or so munutes to town. The hotel is just very pretty and comfortable. We had a lovely view of Nice from our window. On the negative side the pool did not look too clean and we were charged for "extras" at breakfast, but we had no idea that we would be charged as breakfast was supposed to have been included. The staff was excellent - they made wonderful recommendations for us on places to eat and so forth. I would recommend this hotel.

Dear Eols,

The whole team of the Hotel du Petit Palais Nice **** would like to thank you for the time taken to post your feedback on TripAdvisor.

That is true that we are down of the hill of Cimiez, not exactly in the center of Nice,
and yes, 10 minutes of walk are necessary to reach the main center (Old City, Place Garibaldi...)
but that's exactly the reason why we can (instead of the city center hotel) really propose our guests a wonderful quietness, in our beautiful garden (We often said to our guests that "only the birds song can disturb you" !)
and maybe what you find inside our nice swimming pool (which is maintained daily by professional device) was some leaf because of the beautiful trees nearby.

About the breakfast, we truly apologize if there was some kind of "misunderstood"...
Yes, we propose a full buffet breakfast (with a choice of pastries, scrambled eggs, french cheese and "charcuterie", pan cakes, fresh bread and gluten free bread, yogurts, ) which makes it a rich buffet breakfast, but it's true that some extras (like cooked omelet with ham and mushroom) are not included in the buffet, (the list put on every breakfast table describe this "extras", made by our professional waiter.)

Thanks again for your compliment and recommendation.

The entire staff of the Hotel du Petit Palais Nice **** is looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future.


Sunny regards from Côte d’Azur

This is an absolute little gem of a hotel. It's not exactly smack in the middle of Nice, so you have to walk about 10 - 15 minutes to get into the main part of the city, but it is situated in a very nice neighbourhood, so the walk into town is pleasant.

The rooms here are typically European, in that they're not big, but they're nicely appointed, very clean, and very comfortable. Wifi is free, reliable, and has reasonable speed.

This is not a big hotel--I'd call it a boutique hotel--and it's not cheap, but I feel that by European standards, it offers reasonable value for money.

The staff here are wonderful: friendly, welcoming, helpful, and all speak good English. They are a credit to the establishment.

There's no restaurant at the hotel, but there a great breakfast room, and the breakfast is excellent. There is also a small (very small) pool and a small spa.

This is a very quaint, charming, and very well run hotel. I would have no hesitation in staying here again should I revisit Nice.
