I''ve been coming to the hotel for many years now and it's alway a big pleasure to come back and meet Patrick and his very friendly staff again. it's simply perfect. Ok, Patrick, one little advise then: please bring back the books you had in the dining room but that's really the only thing we can think about. See you... More

Thanks to TripAdvisor I found this really nice hotel. The Petit Palais has a superb price vs value and it is also very well located. So you walk in 15min to the port or museum of modern art. We where for business in Nice but I also can recommend this place for families. My sea view room was nice, clean... More

Been here to spend a weekend and celebrate Valentine's with my wife in Nice. I've booked this hotel after reading all the good reviews about this hotel. And it is all true. Great location. Maybe not for older people because it is a little climb to get to the hotel. But the room we had, superior with sea view, was... More

Very friendly and helpful staff ready to go the extra mile. Room with a perfect view to the sea and city. Good choice breakfast. Tastefully decorated. Very quiet location, 15 min by foot to the old town. No bus stop in proximity. Would always come back and recommend to friends!

The hotel is located above Nice on a hill. The view is beautiful and the rooms are large and clean. Service was very good, we were given many useful tips (Sightseeing, restaurants etc) at the reception. It is a small place and it has a lot of personality. Breakfast was in a little, romantic inner court, (unfortunately layed out with... More

Here's the story --quite incredible because highly unprofessional. I came 3 days earlier than expected early in the afternoon to be sure a room is available. A man at the desk told me there is lot of room available so no problem to extend to 3 days more. The room was very nice with a great view on the city... More

The hotel is on the hill above Nice which gives it amazing views. We picked a sea view room and we could not have been happier. The walk from the centre is uphill but not too difficult. We used the 2 sets of steps which saved time. One of thee steps going through the wooded area can be tricky because... More

Rooms were old-world cozy. My husband and I stayed in December and it rained our entire stay. We walked up and down the hill to the main area of town; about a 10 minute walk not for the faint of heart. The staff was very nice and helpful. The breakfast was very nice too for 16 Euros each (which is... More

This hotel is a real great; we loved it. The rooms are wonderful and the location is fantastic. It sits high on the hill above Place Garibaldi and is a great starting point to explore the old city on foot. Parking is mainly on street where you can find space, although they do have small area if you book. Expect... More

We chose this hotel particularly because on trip advisor it stated, pet friendly and free car parking. It is up on top of a hill overlooking Nice but on a very narrow street, on arrival there was nowhere to park, after an extended discussion with reception staff they finally admitted they have secure parking next door (down the road behind...
