Great location on the Promenade and almost next door to the famous Negresco. We had two rooms (408 and 310) both with full sea views and both with small balconies. 310 was slightly larger. Our stay was for 3 nights at the end of October. Apparently this is classified as Winter as the air-con was switched off for the whole building despite day time temperatures of around 70F vand night time temperatures in the 60's. Room 408 in particular was sweltering at night and as the Hotel is located on a very busy main road (virtually a dual carriageway), traffic noise is a real problem if you open the windows and it's almost impossible to sleep. We requested a fan which was supplied (the first one didn't work). This improved the situation slightly. However, after we returned home and on checking the bill (yes, I know we should've checked it more carefully before!), we were charged 50 Euros for it! A bit of a cheek or what? In my opinion, this Hotel is too expensive and the advantage of a sea view is massively outweighed by the traffic noise. We didn't have breakfast in the Hotel. I suggest that you try the La Dolce Momento cafe a few yards away (turn right out of the Hotel). Very friendly, enjoyable and a fraction of the price of the breakfast in the Hotel. On the plus side, the staff are friendly and helpful and the Hotel is quite well maintained. If ever we returned to Nice we'd choose to say in one of the many plush looking Hotels in a quiet side street, forego the sea views and save a lot of money!
