“So much better than 3 star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

If you are looking for a quiet stylish comfortable hotel in Nice look no further. This may only be 3 star but its better than many 5 star hotels ii have stayed in, Well appointed rooms, bar, pool and garden. Balaconys and views from almost all rooms and only a 1 km walk from centre of Nice. (albeit uphill).

Staff were very helpful decor was great, Hotel was clean and service excellent. Well worth the room rate. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: top floor rooms have best views

We loved our stay, it was a perfect end to our holiday. Peace, comfort and good service. The views from our bedroom were magnificent and the cool terrace the right spot for a bottle of Rose and a spot of lunch on our one lazy day away from sightseeing. The staff were very helpful, booking restaurants, taxi transfers etc. We should have got the hotel to collect us from the airport and would do so in future, the bus was brilliant but the walk with suitcases at midday was not! We enjoyed our evening strolls back to the hotel as the noise of the city faded and the calm gentility of the hotel greeted us. A lovely hotel.

Nice little hotel, clean rooms, comfortable beds, good location, about 20 minutes to the beach. Breakfast was delicious and staff was very friendly and helpful :) They only have 3 or so parking places and you need to book it in advance, or you can simply park on the streets. No problem because it's a good neighbourhood.

We had a fantastic stay. It is a beautiful old hotel in a great location with a fantastic view. The walk from the city may be challenging for those with reduced mobility but for others it's a chance to walk off the croissant calories. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Philippe provided some thoughtful and great advice on nearby restaurants. The room was very clean and extremely comfortable. The quality of the breakfast could be improved (croissants were not fresh) but that was the only minor negative on what was a lovely enjoyable stay. I would unreservedly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Nice.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor for best views of the city and the Med.

Great little hotel with nice rooms and beautiful views over Nice. The staff is really friendly.
Make sure you get a room with Sea view because otherwise you miss out. The hotel is located a little above on the hillside.
The hotel has as well a small garden with a pool, pool bar and a small breakfast restaurant. It is perfect to rest a little after a day of exploring

My mom and I recently stayed in Le Petit Palais for 3 nights in June. It was a lovely hotel. All of the staff was helpful and very nice. The rooms and bathrooms were large and clean and we had the added bonus of a patio overlooking their beautiful garden. It was the perfect place to relax at the end of the day. The hotel is a bit of a walk (about 20 minutes) from the old part of Nice, downhill on the way there, uphill on the way back, but it is in a lovely neighborhood.

Room Tip: Some of the first floor rooms have a nice patio

We stayed for 10 nights in July 2014 . We chose the hotel based on the reviews and the location . It was absolutely fabulous . The quality of sleeps were excellent as the hotel is 15 minutes on foot outside the old town and in a quiet residential area .
The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble . The owner is Christine who oozes elegance and beauty , and she treats you like her own family .
The room was sumptuously French , with a little private patio where we chose to take breakfast each day .
The staff were very friendly and thoroughly professional . We would thoroughly recommend this hotel , as long as you dont mind the short walk home at night . Fabulous .

Room Tip: Ground floor means a delicious little private patio , 1st and second floor will give you a sea view...
