Found this through last minute.com. Not really a bargain at all. They only give out the most tired delapidated rooms on deals. We saw the other rooms on this floor that looked to the sea and they looked like they had actually been renovated in the past 30 years unlike our room which given the decor, colours and state haven't been touched for 30 years!

However, the location near the beach, the old town and the shopping area is very convenient and would be the only reason to stay there again until they renovate their rooms. I would call this a 3 star hotel. No way is it 4.

Room Tip: Room 542 - hope they have replaced the disgusting toilet seat. Also, it looked like someone had trie...

The rooms were a bit tired but very very clean and the lobby beautiful and the breakfast very much acceptable. The front desk staff extremly helpful,especially Jean-Pascal what a great guy he was. The location was SUPERB right on the main boulevard cross the street in you on the Beach, make a left turn and behind the hotel all the great shopping and restaurnats, I will stay here next time I return to Nice....

Room Tip: Ask for a room with Balcony

First of all, make sure you go to the right hotel, there's two 'B4' hotels next to each other so it can cause a bit of confusion! Once we got to the right one and to our room we were extremely pleased. We had a top floor room with a sea view terrace, and it was the closest one to the sea so we got quite lucky with that. The room was a great size and had all the amenities you'd need, and the bed was very big which is always good. We did have an issue with the air conditioning leaking, which the cleaning staff seemed to ignore, but when we reported it to the reception, someone came up to fix it quite quickly. The terrace was a great size, with table and chairs as well as sun loungers. The hotel is also in an excellent location, right on the Promenade des Anglais, and very close to the shopping district and old town. The breakfast was also a bonus, though not sprawling as some are it had a good mix of hot and cold food on offer. All in all a great stay. (Oh and good toiletries as well!)

We stayed there for two nights last week and found the hotel service was terrible. We had trouble when we arrived in Nice and needed help finding a taxi. I called the hotel with the remaining credit on my Italian sim asking them for help. We needed a taxi and i didnt have internet access to find a phone number for a taxi and didnt speak French. Their answer was no.
To top it off they said "goodluck".
We wandered in this strange town with our luggge until we found a Hotel ibis. They immediately helped us no questions asked. Now thats service. We weren't even their clients!
The rooms are expensive and so tiny its uncomfortable. Oh, and dont ask for an iron and expect it any time soon.
Best give this hotel a miss.

Very near to anywhere in Nice. Great location for a city hotel. But what about the other facts... Extremely old looking, old fashioned or old everything. Must be renewed very quickly. The hotel has lots of rooms with balconies which has sea view. Also, a lovely but small terrace for lunch or dinner. Take the price into account and then choose Boscolo.

Overpriced 2 star hotel pretending to be 4 star.
We stayed at 12 hotels during a recent holiday in Europe and this was by far the worst hotel we've ever stayed at.
The room was very small, out-dated decor and had a musty odour of cigarettes!
Staff were 50/50. Two of the staff were helpful and provided good restaurant suggestions, whereas two other staff here completely hopeless. On our checkout they couldn't even organise a taxi, so we had to lug our luggage down the street. We stopped at the Westin (just up the street) and they had us in a taxi within 1 minute (next time we're in Nice, we will stay at the Westin).
Free Wi-fi...... yes well the only catch is that you can only use it in the Foyer. It was very slow and didn't work on three occassions. It was funny (not) to sit in the Foyer with other guests waiting around for the connection. The frustration was apparent to everyone!

Room Tip: Stay at the Westin (down the road)

Stayed for three nights with my wife in July. it was very hot and ey had to change us into another room since the first room had zero ac. The second room had little ac. Upon checkout they didn't give us any credits for changing rooms and our inconviences. We had friends at the le meridian so hung out there a lot. It was like night and day compared to our hotel. Mind you they payed more and had issues with their hotel

The good
Excellent location
Large rooms
Good views - room had a small balcony
Decent price
Wifi only in lobby

The bad
No air condition
Rooms runned down a bit
No wifi in room. - very annoying for people with iPhones/ iPads in rooms

Overall may consider staying back there, but if I saw the meridian at a similar or higher by 75 euros per night I would definitely go there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the water
