We stayed at the Hotel du Petit Palais for a week at the beginning of September, staying in a superior sea view room with a terrace overlooking the Baie des Anges (Bay of Angels). This boutique hotel of some 25 rooms is located uphill in one of Nice's upscale residential areas called Cimiez.
Needless to say, our stay exceeded our expectations. All of the staff could not have been more helpful or charming and took a sincere and personable interest in ensuring our stay was a comfortable and enjoyable one. We also met the owners of the hotel and their charm mirrored that of their staff.
We rented a car and had no trouble finding the place (with our GPS) which was about a 15 minute drive from the airport.
This is what we liked about staying here:
- The king size bed was very comfortable with great linens.
- The bidet in the bathroom. Every hotel room should have one!
- The fantastic views from the terrace.
- That there was available parking at 10 euro per night (which was totally worth it to us). The alternative is to park for free on the street which can become quite crowded.
- The breakfast buffet was great. At 16 euro per person, some may find that a bit expensive, but we thought the price was fine given the quantity and quality of food available and the beautiful outdoor courtyard it was served in.
- The quiet neighbourhood the hotel is located in.
For us, this was truly a dream vacation. Our time in Nice and at this hotel is one that will not be forgotten.
We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for great place to stay in Nice!
