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.
