Another stay at Le Petit Palais. My favorite hide-away from international standardised hotels. My room has been recently refurbished with new beds and fresh coat of paints... Staff as always friendly and useful to point new restaurants and venues... So many things to do on the riviera... Too short this time around to fully enjoy.

What a pleasure to find a hotel with a little bit of individuality, but offering attention to detail and real charm too. So often hotel 'service' comes out of a staff handbook, but at Le Petit Palais, the willingness to help is genuine. Really enjoyed our stay here. Don't come if you favour uniform, generic business hotels or a location... More

If you are looking for a peaceful relaxing hotel where quality is high on the agenda then this is the hotel for you. The fact that this hotel is on a hill in the Cimiez region ensures excellent views when booked into a sea view room. Following a short transfer from the Airport we were greeted by Phillipe who showed... More

View is extraordinary from this queen Victoria's favorite. And you are treated like a queen too. We had a room with a balcony to the sea, worth it. small room, but it is for sleeping, not staying. Of course bit of from the city and taxis are hard to get, but come on, palace is palace, enjoy

This is one of the worst value for the money hotels I have experienced recently. My room was tiny, the furniture "rustic" and tired, and even by 3-star standards, the amenities were poor. Yes, the front desk person was friendly but that does not make the place better. In fact the amenities were reminiscent of being in a gym with... More

We were lucky enough to find this gem of a hotel. We spent a week here in a terrace room. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood a short walk from everything it has everything you could need to make your stay a good one. The breakfast is excellent and offers great variety. The pool and grounds are immaculately maintained as... More

Pros: beautiful hotel, lovely garden area for breakfast, nice small pool to relax by after the very long walk Cons: depending on your pace, it takes anywhere from 10 to 12 minutes downhill from the hotel to the main road. Then it takes another 12 to 15 minutes from there to the beach. Then after a long hot day, it... More

Beautiful hotel in Nice in a quiet and discreet location up on the hills, with stunning views of the old town and the sea. During our one night stay the staff was very helpful, the atmosphere in the hotel very relaxed and discreet and the decoration of the room, hallways and garden done with amazing taste. The old town is... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2015. The hotel itself is a lovely little building just outside Nice City Centre, in Cimiez. It's quite an old building with tons of character that you just don't get with modern hotels. Phillipe and Christophe couldn't do enough to help and were always friendly. The bed was comfortable and the views... More

This hotel fit the bill at the right time. After spending a relaxing week,lazing in Corsica, it was a shock to the system when we got off the ferry and drove through Nice to locate the Hotel du Petit Palais. It was good to find a haven of peace and calm! The location is set away from the main town... More
