First time in Nice-Recommendations needed!

Hey guys,

A friend and I are looking at booking a 3 night trip to Nice at the end of June this year.

Neither of us have ever been before.

We’re after a weekend of casually walking around,taking in a few sights,nice evening meals and a lot of wine.

We’re looking at hotels at the moment but I thought maybe some of the great TA community might have some good suggestions for two girls in their twenties who want to be close enough to the centre without breaking the bank.We’re not particularly fussed about amenities in the hotel,mainly just somewhere that’s clean and comfortable to rest our heads after exploring.

Any advice would be welcomed !

We stayed at Hotel Windsor several times. It is in a very good location and is reasonable although that means different things to different people. Give it a surf..

I stayed in Hotel 64 https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g18… Very modern, right on the main shopping street Avenue Jean Medecin and also very close to the train station. Would stay there again.

Jen, the great TA community all stayed in different hotels, some even rented apartments.

If everyone starts naming theirs, you can just as well go directly to booking.com or any other accomodation site, choose a few that suit you and come back with questions like which of the two is better from this or that point of view.

You should be looking at the Carré d'Or district (Google for map) for somewhere central and walkable but not too raucous like the Old Town. If looking at the iconic seafront Promenade des Anglais make sure you're not too far along it. ..it's 7km long.

The following website provides a map highlighting the Carré d'Or area in Nice. It's almost 17 years since my first trip to Nice and I stayed in this area...I have returned to Nice on multiple occasions every year since. We are based further West now but that suits us.
