“Much preetiness in this hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

The photographs of the hotel website look like an art show, a display of exquisite and colourful spaces, aerial forms as if taken from Chagall's museum in Nice, so we booked eight nights and could not have had a better choice. The reception people were professional, kind and efficient, while our luggage was taken out of our car and the vehicle parked, in a public parking nearby that Boscolo rents for its patrons. We have to say that we were delighted by the whiteness of everything in our room, elegant furniture with sculpted roses pattern repeated in every piece. The large French doors opening into Boulevard Victor Hugo gave us a view of this established avenue in central Nice. Since our room was on a higher floor, further from the elevator, we enjoyed the view and the quietness at all times. About 3-4 times, we used the spa and the swimming pool, impressive though a bit claustrophobic, the only time we felt floating in an aquarium.
The location is perfect, at a walking distance to everything, so we went in all directions, back and forth from Place Massena, the hills above Nice, Promenade des Anglais, tea at Negresco, Chagall museum, train station for trips to Cannes, or bus station to St. Paul de Vence and more. If tired, the street car is at five minutes walk on Jean Medecin, street on which one finds Galeries Laffayette and a lot more shopping.

Breakfast at Boscolo is of superb quality, though one pays around 30 Euros, but we didn't miss it in any of our mornings there. The only disappointment was dinner at the restaurant, expensive, quite uninteresting, a bit of a petty portion and a too familiar waiter, whose name unfortunately we don't recall, but he was a tall, brunet man in his forties. We tried other places and also discovered delicious food available at the deli counter of "Au Bon Marché", from where we took three course dinners and enjoyed the food with wine in our lovely room, in front of our open balcony doors, feeling like happy locals, true "nicois". We'll definitely be back in Nice and at Boscolo Exedra.

The first thing I noticed is that everything is in white, even the TV and the remote controll. It is a style mix ranging from Barock to Modern. Very friendly welcome in the middle of the night. I had a corner room with a comfortable double bed, big shower cabin and a very good selection of bath gel and shampoos.
The gym with an excellent coach is included as well.

The Hotel interior is all in white. It's striking. The room was very spacious. The have a great buffet breakfast and a very good restaurant for dinner. The room has a unique shower of 3 sides glass and a tile floor. They give you more shampoo, conditioner and lotions than I have ever seen it a hotel. The hotel is centrally located near the old town and Promenade Anglaise. There are plenty of restaurants and shops all around. The service was great and they even got us a doctor when we needed one. The room was spotless and the towels and linens were perfect.

We stay for about a week in December this nice five stars property located near the shopping area and only 10 minutes away from the promenade. I have to say thank you to the all staff for having been so nice, at arrival they show the room which is a nice touch, they explain you the different service and very important they also tell you about the restaurant which is not usual as in other place they really don't care to sell you extras services, but in this case we were glad to learn about the restaurant Pecheria which was a fantastic surprise being a Hotel restaurant.
The room is all white decorated with the open space bathroom that for us was fun, you have some curtains in case for privacy, but it might be not accept to anyone...
The room was clean even tough the turndown service at night is up and down depending to the lady in service, but most of the time was ok with some delicious chocolate I guess italian as Boscolo we discover is an italian company.
The Bar is nice but not very much accomodating I wonder if in summer with the outdoor terrace is more relaxing, they have a Spa which we did not use very much but seems nice with an indoor pool and gym.
The restaurant was just great the best food ever eat in France it is a mediterranean cuisine with sea food base, great combination of fish and vegetables just amazing I wish I could learn how to cook that way, we have spent 3 times there and always a surprise also the dessert to die with, home made ice creams and the warm tartelette, hummm....
I can just recommend this place to anyone it is just great, clean design, fancy and very important with smiling and helpful staff, great job!

Room Tip: Book a room with high floor facing the boulevard you get the sun all day and the noise from the stre...

We spent 8 nights at the Nice Boscolo Exedra and found it to be impressive on all accounts.
The decor is like no other...uniquely modern, French and avant-garde. Their emphasis on cleanliness was refreshing. The staff was very polite, informative and focused on constant service. Centrally located to everywhere...trains, buses and attractions. We walked everywhere! Loved it, loved it, loved it and am left with many fond memories. We booked this hotel as a package through AARP

We came here to celebrate our anniversary, and made a note at reservation. When we checked in, there was a box of complimentary macaroons and a bottle of champagne waiting in the room. The bath tub was lined with rose petals. What a nice touch!

The hotel concept is very similar to Gran Melia Colon in Seville, Spain, including the signature open bath centrepiece. The open bath concept is great for couples or romantic getaways, but otherwise you have to excuse yourself when your roommate is taking a bath or shower.

Service generally is impeccable. Most staff speaks fluent English. The art sculptures in lobby are nicely appointed and the white decor imparts a clean and minimalist feel. Breakfast is good.

Is there any negative? Yes there are a few though they are nit picking. The room paint job is rough especially around the bath tub base. Spa facilities at basement are somewhat small with low ceiling and feels claustrophobic. Breakfast choice is identical everyday during our 4 night stay. While none of these mars from an otherwise excellent experience, it raises question whether this is commensurate with a true 5 star establishment.

Despite some shortcomings, Boscolo Exedra remains good value for money. For the price of Mercure in Paris (and no breakfast), we were treated as VIPs in a boutique hotel, breakfast included. Just make sure you mention at reservation if you are planning celebrations.
