The Palais is a nice average hotel in its class, but nothing special.
When we arrived at 1pm we were told that the room was not ready, but would be in 45 minutes. We knew that check in is at 2 so thought no problem. We were sent to the bar (very pretty but Hot ,It was mid July, and no airconditioning in the bar). Ordered what turned out to be very over priced drinks 13 Euro for a small mojito that did not have any taste of rum.
Went back down to the front desk after 2pm and still the room was not ready.
After asking 3 times over the next hour the room was finally available. No explaination given why it was not ready.
The rooms are clean and of a good size ( we had a sea view) but nothing special . Airconditioning in the room was very efficient . Do not know why people enthuse about the Bang & Olafsun TV..it works like any other (just costs too much) I prefer Sharp Aquos! Soundproofing was not as good as expected as the room above must have had a footballer staying there as they constantly ran around and played ball (even at 2am!) We talked to the hotel about this but they did nothing. One night there was a hen party and they made alot of noise from 230 until 4am right outside our bedroom door.
There is an automatic mini bar with no chance of using it to keep a bottle of water cool. DO NOT EVEN TOUCH IT>>THE PRICES ARE OUTRAGEOUS>
Finally, there are no drawers to actually put your clothes into (unless you use the one drawer in the night table) For a week stay at a hotel I had to ask for a ridiculous amount of hangers (they did provide them)
The hot and cold water does fluctuate in the shower but not too badly.
Breakfast is hit and miss with horrible service. We ate outside every day on the terrace, but never ate the scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage. It was not cooked well and not kept to temperature. The cold selection was very nice and generous though.
Getting a cup of coffee or salt was another matter. We would sometimes (over 1 week 5 days out of 7 days) have to ask at least 5 times (once 7) and wait for up to 45 minutes for one cup of coffee and then beg them for a small pot. Salt was so hard to come by that we ended up bringing small packages from a local deli to the breakfast table!
The pool was a the real reason we picked the hotel and it was very pleasant (but get there early in the day or you will have no place to sunbathe as it is a very small area.
The sea in Nice is just too dirty to swim in.
The loction of the hotel is perfect as it is on the Promenade and 5 minutes walk from Vieux Nice.
