Reviewed 25 October 2013

Dont know where to start, was it the liveried footmen, the fantastic room ( pity the view was poor), the "best hotel bar in Europe" or the Picasso on the wall.

Could have been the fabulous Rotunda breakfast room , decorated as a carousel. or even the gents toilets that were kitted out as a Hussars tent.

Could have been the excellent musicians in the evening and the attentive staff.

Possibly the corridors stuffed with antiques and art works.

Maybe the most fantastic lift i have ever been on.

GO TO THIS HOTEL. Its a must, but be aware its only open to residents, but be aware its expensive unless you can line up a special deal.

Room Tip: Even the "cheap" rooms are fantastic- get the best you can afford, but dont worry if its t...

Stopped by for dinner with family and has a truly wonderful experience and on a warm evening what better way to watch the world go by.

Don't always accept the first table offered and push for a table if booking at short notice.

Highly recommended.

We cannot rave enough about this hotel. Luxury, great staff, large rooms, and the restaurants were amazing. This is a wonderful hotel for people with small children and the location is perfect -right on the beach and close to the shopping areas. Also, each room has individual climate control which work really well.

Room Tip: Our Deluxe Double Room over looking the doom was really large and quiet

We had an ocean front suite and it really was beautiful. The view of the long stretch of beach and ocean and the way that the town lights up at night made it hard to leave our little balcony. It was close to some great restaurants and cute beach clubs/restaurants right across the street. Our room was lovely, the view of the coast was amazing and the location was perfect. Loved it!

The Negresco is one of the old world style hotels that offers elegance, charm, style and excellent service. The classical architecture hides a modern hotel the combines the comfort, convenience and ambiance of one of the best hotels in the world with the sophistication of a management steeped in the finest traditions of service to the guest. This is an expensive hotel but worth the price when you consider the amazing quality that runs throughout he entire facility. From the front desk and greeting to the departure you will enjoy the experience. Located directly on the boulevard at the beach front, you can walk anywhere in the heart of the city in just a few minutes.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the front so that you can enjoy the vista of the city and the sea.

The hotel is magnificent, full of majestic art and decor from Louis X1V period onwards. A truly wonderful historical experience. However, as a place to stay there were signs that the beauty and splendour have passed their best and age is beginning to show. The service seemed excellent on arrival but apart from the very helpful girls on the reception desk and the excellent concierge, the initial impressions were soon forgotten. The rooms are full of antiques and character but lack the modern requirements we have come to expect of a 5 star hotel. To be fair there did seem to be some renovation work underway but not to the rooms. However, the position of the hotel is fantastic, right on the promenade and near to the Old Town. Certainly worth a visit.

Dear Ttsteele 1948,

We thank you for your review further to your recent stay at Le Negresco.

We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the eclectic decoration of the hotel and our location just in front of the Mediterranean sea , within walking distance to the old town.

All our rooms are individually decorated and we continue our renovation program keeping in mind the preservation of the unique atmosphere our owner Mrs Augier has created.
We are sincerely sorry to read that apart from the front desk and concierge team the quality of service was not up to your expectations. We continuously strive to meet our guests’ needs and comfort. Please rest assured we are taking the appropriate measures in order to offer our guests the best amenities and service.
It is our hope to welcome you again to Le Negresco during your next trip to Nice.

Yours sincerely,

We love Hotel Negresco. Its wonderful presence on the Promenade Anglais in Nice is echoed right throught the hotel. Each floor has a theme decorated with original antiques of the period, ours was the Napoleonic period. The ground floor has a spectacular central room under the dome with glorious art noveux decorations and an enormous crystal chandellier. All around this room is an arcade full of modern art and sculpture. Our room was a good size with a half tester bed with brocade overhead. We had Louis XIV furniture and wonderful view over the trees of the Hotel Messena and the curve of the Bay of Angels to Cape de Ferat. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly, from reception, the concierges and restaurants.
There are two restaurants - 2 Michellin star Chanceller which has a great degustation lunch on Sundays, and the Rotund Bistro where breakfast and other meals are held. The Rotund, is one would expect in the round, with carrousel horses on the benches which rise and fall on the half hour to carrousel music played by an automaton girl on a hurdy gurdy. Great variety of food which can be eaten inside or on a outside terrace overlooking the sea.
We have visited twice and can't wait to go again.

Room Tip: Book partial sea view rooms so you get the sweep of the bay
