-The Hotel is in the best location. Everything in Nice that you want to do is a very short walk away, and being right on the Promenade des Anglais makes it even better. Our view from our room was facing away from the hotel, but you don't go to a place like Nice to hang out in the hotel room.
-There is internet access, however its for a price and much like most of Europe it is not available in the room, only the lobby.
-There is a "Fitness Center". Which is really only a suite sized room with a broken cable machine, an old bike, and a rowing machine.
-There were lots of activities offered by by the hotel.
-The rooms, and pretty much the whole hotel was not clean. I have stayed at discount resorts in Mexico and Cuba which put the cleanliness of the Royal to shame. There was even a large patch of black mold in the bathroom. I wore white sock in the hotel room one night and after being on my feet for a minute or two my socks were died black as if i was walking in a campground.
-Our floor of our hotel smelled like baby powder (not kidding at all).
-The staff was not very polite. Most were simply short and did not seem very nice (maybe because I don't speak very much french) and other staff members were out and out rude. There was a few who were nice, I don't want to make it sound like they weren't nice.
-There is little to no sound proofing/insulation. Throughout the night it was quiet common to hear people in other rooms talking, watching tv, or even using the bathroom.
Overall this is a hotel that is less than what I payed for in a location that is beyond what I paid, so to me it equaled out. I don't care to much where I sleep when I am in a place such as Nice. However my wife was very disapointed with the cleanliness. This hotel would be a Fantastic location with a complete renovation.
***Most important point***
-This hotel has a local reputation as a seniors hotel. My wife and I being in our late 20's were at least 30 to 40 years younger than everyone else in the hotel. If you are looking for a hot spot of activity or a young funloving place, than look elsewhere. If you are looking for a place to sleep, so you can go out and see all Nice has to offer, in the best location for a good price than this is probably the Hotel for you as long as you aren't a neat freak.
