Reviewed 9 January 2014

The staff were pleasant and helpful, the view from the room (we booked a sea view) was pretty good (and also there was no arguing at reception, unlike some hotels, we booked a full sea view and we got a very good one)!

The bar seemed fairly busy (but not overly crowded), but the cocktails were pretty expensive, disappointingly they charged us as much for non-alcoholic versions, which is pretty poor, I expect to pay a premium for an alcoholic cocktail in a hotel, but it surely must be significantly cheaper for non-alcoholic ones!

We went in the off-season so I can't comment about the pool or rooftop bar, but from what people have said you have to pay to use it, if that's true it would definitely put us off!

The room was pleasant, fairly nice and obviously the balcony and view were good (although it was a little too cold in the evenings, being October).

The hotel is great for the airport (very near, but still a EUR 20 taxi ride), but its a long walk into the city centre. There doesn't seem to be too much around by the hotel (again maybe because it was the off season) and oddly virtually every restaurant in Nice seems to be an Italian (which is fine at first, but gets a bit repetitive).

Overall Nice is nice, the hotel isn't bad, but I'm not in a massive rush to go back to either. If we did return to Nice I suspect we would go in the summer and would consider a more central location.

Room Tip: A sea view costs more, but it is a good view!

This hotel is not in the centre of Nice, so be prepared to do some walking or use taxis. The pro's however are; - right opposite the sea, great rooftop pool, not in the hustle of main town, easy to get to Monaco (taxi / transfer) and convenient for airport
It's a good hotel, not a great hotel. The bar shuts early and the food is ok. This is a place to use as a base and not to be in the whole time. We were there for the F1 and this place was perfect for that.

Stayed in November. The rooms are well designed, clean and comfortable. View from sea front rooms is stunning. However, out of season there was a feeling that the hotel had a skeleton staff. The food was particularly disappointing for a hotel of this quality

Room Tip: Choose a sea front room

Just recently got back from a weekend trip to Nice.

Having read many reviews regarding the distance to the city center (Old Town) I'm quite surprised really... Sure, the distance is probably around 4-4.5 km one way, but if you're on a vacation and stroll down the Promenade des Anglais is a really relaxing time people and sea watching then stopping half way for lunch. I simply don't get the distance thing - maybe it's an age thing?

The hotel lobby was big and light, check in went fast and smoothly.

The room was spacious enough - even with a crib - and the decore interestingly colour- and detailful as opposed to many light Nordic style minimalistic hotels I've stayed in.

Help from the Concierge desk was detailed and helpful no matter what request.

Brekkie not bad at all with a good selection of hot items - and a cook to order egg menu - as well as cold items. Also a choice of Espresso or brewed coffee. Also a great reception as a family and not seen as a problem.

Also tried the room service one day and as we choose mains, desserts and cheeses we realized it was quite generous in serving sizes.

All in all a very good stay in a nice hotel where we all slept like babies.

We had booked a room overlooking the sea with the possibility to upgrade to a Junior Suite. Upgrade was available on our arrival though only overlooking the City. When we asked if a Junior Suite was Ava overlooking the sea. We were told yes, for double what we were already paying. We stayed with our original booking. Breakfast in our room was lovely.

Room Tip: Definitely overlooking the sea.

This is an excellent hotel in many ways, sitting right on the Promenade des Anglais with the added attraction of a very desirable rooftop pool. Even in October we were able to spend time lounging in the sun although swimming was only for the brave in the unheated water.

But there is a but. The hotel is not central. It is well over a mile away from the main attractions of Nice and a distance from a decent choice of restaurants. The walk is beautiful around the bay of Nice and a multi-day pass can make buses a cheap transport option. However there are hotels that are better value and situated much more centrally.

Service was first rate, our room was very comfortable and the rooftop pool was very much an added bonus. The hotel also has its own strip of beach with loungers and restaurant but it had closed down by the time of our visit. There are charges for access to the pool and the beach in the peak season but the pool was free in October.

The only niggle we had concerned breakfast. There is a very wide choice but the “hot” items were only ever lukewarm. We assumed this was because they had been left standing for a long time after being cooked. However, we had to breakfast early on our last day and arrived at after it opened for service. The “hot” food was lukewarm even then.

Overall, a very good hotel but not perhaps the best location to get the most out of a compact city like Nice.

I can't agree more with all other previous negative comments with this hotel. The hotel is conveniently located nearby the airport (so close that when we popped into a taxi at the Nice International Airport on a late night and shown the driver the hotel address, he spoke abruptly to himself in French (as if cursing to me)).

We first greeted by a rude & impatient and arrogant Frenchmen receptionist, Cedric of answering my enquiries of the room rates and deposit, then I was accused called twice by the operator at the "One-click service" for tooth brushes & slippers (as the carpet in the room is dated that I don't want to walk on it with bare feet) despite it was being asked to deliver to two separate room. But our nightmare didn't stop there, two mattress out of our four beds in two rooms are in terrible condition - the odd is not just 50% as the crinkly noise from the spring is such a nuisance not just to the one who sleep on it, but to the roommate as well!

Radisson Blu has kept sending emails to stay at their hotels and to award oneself with points; but when you spend points to redeem for free (or partially free) room nights, you'll don't get the same respect as a paying guest. Even worse, the staffs, on average, have a very different attitude towards different skin colours.

My fellow Chinese, there's a lot of hotels in Nice to choose from.
