“4-star location but 2-star facilities”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

I selected this hotel based on the location (easy to get to the Acropolis convention centre while attending the conference and close to the Promenade and my favourite restaurant in Nice Le Grand Balcon) and 4 star rating. Unfortunately the hotel deserves 4 start rating only for the location and smile & charm of the hotel staff :)

Hotel facilities including not working elevator should be already replaced.
The bathroom and hotel room furniture remembers the last century what clearly caused a huge challenge to the hotel cleaning staff. My wife could not resist sharing our views through the hotel survey.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the floor where elevator is working :)

Dear Guest,

We thank you to have taken time to share with us your impressions about our hotel, We are pleased to read that you appreciated the location of our hotel and friendliness of our staff.

One of our 3 elevators broke down, nevertheless all our rooms were served by an elevator.

We deeply regret that you were disappointed. This unpleasant event is definitely not representative of the Hotel Beau Rivage, please accept our apologies.

We are surprised to learn that our furniture you remember the last century ! Do note that our hotel has been completely renovated in 2004 by the famous architect, Jean-Michel Wilmotte, in a pure and wooden style.

We sincerely wish to avoid any doubt about the quality of the hotel. Satisfying our customers remains a priority for us.

Best regards,

Overview: Aging modern-style hotel in a great location, with rooms that could use some upgrades, good service, uncommonly extensive breakfast offering but a stretch at their 4-star rating.

Location: Without question the best part of this hotel is the location. It is one block from the beach and the famous promenade, and just a few blocks from the beginning of the super popular Vieux Nice (Old Nice) district. We didn't have a car and found no trouble seeing all of the Nice sights. It is a bit of a walk (20 minutes) from the train station - which we used for all day trips.

Room: The rooms were redone in a modern style some time back. The hotel, while very historic, does not have much of a European feel (mainly due to the modern decor). As you can see in the photos, the rooms have shown their wear with stains abound, a bathroom with mildew spots and more. This isn't to say the room felt completely unclean per se, just that the rooms look pretty worn for a 4 star hotel. Ok, maybe they did feel a little unclean. The oddest element of the room (and something I've seen other reviewers comment on) is the design of the shower. There is absolutely no way to take a shower and not add a few full cups of water onto the bathroom floor. To prove that is the case you can see water damage along the tiling of the floor and even onto the carpet in the main room. This is a design flaw that needs to be addressed in the next remodel. The bed was comfortable (firm) and the room size was pretty large compared to other rooms we stayed at in France. Most rooms have street or courtyard type views with a few with water views.

Value: We were in Nice for pleasure and did extensive research on places with the best price. This hotel offered some nice elements (free wi-fi, newspapers and our package came with a free breakfast) that made it feel like a fair price and value. Speaking of the breakfast, as other reviewers have noted it really is an extensive and fresh breakfast rarely seen in France (much more than a basic continental). We just felt that this was more of a 3 star than 4 star hotel and the rooms could use some loving

The room was small but well equipped, just the tea & coffee missing. Nice touches were the bathrobes with slippers, plenty of wardrobe space, safe, several plugs for re-charging. Bathroom was a bit dated with the shower head being minuscule, the toilet seat chipped and the clothes line broken but it was clean and well lit with a good shelf for setting out toiletries.
The staff try hard, are approachable and speak reasonable English.
The situation is a big plus, you are right on the outskirts of Old Nice (2 mins away from the market area), and close to the shopping streets (5 mins walking).The tram is nearby, the hotel has parking. Cross the street and you are on the Promenade des Anglais where it all happens.
There is a bar and restaurant plus a lounge area at the entrance with low, not very comfortable seats. All said, you could do far worse. Would consider staying here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a privilege room overlooking the courtyard as these are much quieter. As air con does not wo...

Great location, central to all public transport and less than 20 min away from then airport. Service was good, all staff spoke good English. Good spread of continental and English breakfast with loads of fruits. Our bedroom was comfortable but too hot. We slept with the window open... Overall we loved out stay and the hotel was no issue.

We checked in a day late, as the air controllers were on strike. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating by allowing us a day delayed check-in and did not charge us for the first night. Overall this has been the warmest welcome, friendliest staff we have experienced in a long time. Can't imagine a better location to see (by foot) everything Nice has to offer. Fun tours, such as "A taste of Nice" start right across the street at the Opera Plage (beach). We loved everything about the hotel, the rooms have a nice size and are clean, the $1.3million Bugatti Veyron parked in front of the hotel for the duration of our stay added a nice touch of luxury as well....we started our morning extremely refreshed as the shower only delivered lukewarm water - an inconvenience probably caused by us sleeping in. The super-friendly staff did not charge us for the minbar as compensation. Another nice touch. The street and Promenade d'Anglais live concerts and traffic was very audible - although we were assigned a room on the top floor. Overall a great hotel and we will be back!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have a nice touch with visible wood studs that support the roof and seem to be the q...

The location of hotel is great, Old Nice, Promeade des Anglais are right there and shopping areas in few minutes walk. Breakfast was marvellous! Room was big enough (they tend to be small in France) as I was staying alone in twin bed room. Bathroom was clean and water pressure high enough for comfortable showering. Bed and bed clothes were wonderful, I slept so well and enjoyed just reading in bed.

Room Tip: Rooms having windows to inner yard are more quiet
