I'm planning to visit Nice this August and am currently looking for a good hotel but I'm also kind of clueless on what location I should take into account. Normally, I try to live as close to the centre as possible or just beside the tube so that I can get to the centre within minutes. I reckon Nice doesn't have the tube and so, could you please recommend me some good locations? Should I try to be as close to the Promenade des Anglais or is the living centre of the city somewhere else?
Or, even better, maybe you could recommend me a good hotel in a good location for three people for not more than 150 Euro per night? So far, I've been struggling with finding something impeccably good - most of the interesting hotels have quite a lot of unfavourable reviews along the good ones. Also, free WiFi would be great.
