We stayed here as part of an escorted bus tour. Views from front of hotel were beautiful, as were views from their pool area. The water and wide promendade are right across the street. It's great they offer a free shuttle into old Nice, but it stopped running at 7 p.m., so had to walk or take public transportation back. The walk was about 2 miles.

Our room was just fine. It was a large room with space for our luggage and closet space & hangers, slippers, tea kettle and a roomy bathroom. Excellent bed and pillows. Good water pressure and water got hot. Deep tub. Black out curtains to help you sleep and bed was very comfy. Breakfast was included and it, too, was excellent. Huge selection and all very good.

Really liked this hotel and our room, but in the bathroom, the lighting was not great and it was kind of dark in the shower. The windows in our room opened only a little bit, so we couldn't let in much air, plus the bus stopped right under our window so it was very noisy.

We were a group of 6 people staying 5 nights for the Monaco Grand Prix. Before even arriving, the Concierge (Marc) was so helpful in taking delivery of pre-booked tickets for our arrival and arranging transfers.

The welcome was excellent, the staff extremely professional, in particular the Hotel Manager, we have travelled the world and have never seen such an attentive Manager, who regularly asked if everything was ok and was constantly present around the entire hotel.

We reserved 3 sea-view rooms with terrace which were immaculate, the bed was super comfortable and pillows were excellent.

The higlight for us was the roof-top terrace overlooking the sea with spectacular views. We spent a couple of days relaxing at the pool-side, before and after the Grand Prix and every evening enjoying the stunning views. Eating continental breakfast and food served on the terrace is very pleasant and the food, friendly staff and service were excellent. Our friends also loved the food in the pool terrace restaurant and the full breakfast served downstairs.

We have very high expectations and would have to say this is one of the best city hotels we have stayed in and would highly recomend it for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Sea view room recomended

Very nice hotel, clean rooms,comfortable beds. our room became a little small for three adults. The hotel has a pool and restaurant / bar on the roof. a very nice place to relax after a day on the beach, witch is only just across the road. A bit to far to town centre, but there is a shuttle bus service times a day.
But check the bill carefully on departure, ours had several posts that were wrog (tot €50)!
Some of the staffl a little arrogant.

This hotel is very nice! The services were great and the breakfast every morning was really good. The location is walking distance from a Nightclub called High....and maybe 6 blocks from the eatery and casino. The roof top bar and restaurant is awesome, and the view is beautiful from the rooftop. Nice gym and business center. Will visit again...LOVE IT!

We stopped here for a week over easter overall the stay was enjoyable friendly staff always helpful we only ate there once I had the steak and it was dreadful so I sent it back and refused to pay for it even though it wad knocked off the bill it was very disappointing for a four star hotel also the wine was very expensive starting at 42 € a bottle the breakfast was ok but not the best selection I've ever had the English style side of breakfast I thight was poor but all in all we enjoyed the stay on a night we ate in nice we took the bus to towm very cheap 1€ anywhere always full though be prepared to stand and hang on to the grab rails once in town hundreds of brilliant
restaurants but nearly all have similar menus but we never had a
bad meal beer is around 9€ a pint
not cheap wine around 6€ a glass I must recommend a small Chinese restaurant called crazy wok which was excellent and speedy service you can even watch your meal been cooked on a large screen.we did Cannes by bus for 1€ 1.45hr trip and also monte Carlo by train and bus the train was fast but packed everyone scrambling to get on and off the train station in nice was very hard to find though we only found it after asking several people for directions arent sure if the station we used is the only one in nice if it is it's very small and well hidden we caught the 100 bus back from monte Carlo only took an hour but bus was packed all in all a good holiday but generally expensive.

When we checked into the hotel we requested a Queen or King bed. We ended up getting a bed that was made of 2 twin beds pushed together- and it was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. The bed also had cheap sheets that were itchy and scratchy.
The room was not very clean at all- with water marks and stains around the sink and a huge rust colored stain in the middle of the bathroom floor.
The door key to our room would no longer work every single time we left the room (it would get deactivated) and the front desk staff was not very nice about reactivating the key for us.
The 22Euro buffet breakfast the hotel offers is TERRIBLE. Not worth the money at all. The lunch at the rooftop pool is a much better option and was actually very good.
The location of the hotel is at the far end of the town, so it is better to stay closer to the center of old town by the flower market because it costs about 15euro to take a cab down to the restaurants and bars. The hotels in this area are nicer and cleaner and cost just as much as the Radisson. I recommend staying anywhere other than the Radisson in Nice.

Modern amenities, spacious rooms, comfortable beds. Expensive breakfast made us seek food elsewhere. 20 minutes walk along the Mediterranean coast to get the main Nice square. Recommended if you don't mind walking.
