We stayed here for one night during our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. The only warning I have for visitors is to take a taxi or car to the hotel vs walking with backpacks on as we did, since the streets are steep and signs a little unclear. Once we arrived and saw the charming neighborhood as well as gorgeous... More

A perfect find, admittedly it's a walk up a steep hill but wow it was worth burning those calories!! The views are breathtaking, the customer service welcoming and helpful, our room was ready by 11 so an early check in, top floor , there are lifts but only 2 flights of stairs anyway , the bed large double huge pillows...

We stayed here for 5 days on a recent trip to Cote d'Azur. The rooms are well appointed, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Our terrace had a stunning view of the city and water. A little bit of a walk to town, but nestled in a lovely and quiet neighborhood - it really felt like home. (Great... More

Stayed here for a week. The hotel is located in a quiet residential area that is quite the walk from downtown. Heading to downtown is easy but the climb back might be an issue unless you take a taxi. The rooms are wonderful especially the ones with a view and there was always a nice smell in the room. The... More

This was a charming hotel in the hills of Nice. Huge homes built in the 1900s. So much attention to detail with the decor and comfortable beds. We had a triple room which over looked the pool. The staff was friendly and made us feel warm on our arrival. Hope all of the rooms on our journey are this nice!

This hotel is a well hidden jewel in Nice. It is located in a very quiet and peaceful neighbourhood and with a nice view surroundings. The staff is very friendly and efficient and the cleanness in the whole hotel is a plus. The breakfast is worth-while, because is very well served and has lots of variety, being replenished frequently. If... More

Booked this hotel as a 50th birthday surprise for my husband as I was taking him to Monaco Grand Prix. Everything about it was perfect. Location is far enough away for the bustle of Nice that it's nice and peaceful but close enought to walk to everything. The views from our room (302) were fantastic looking over the town to... More

We returned to the Petit Palais for the second time. We like it. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel is just the right size for the service to feel personal. The rooms are spacious and well kept. The breakfast is plentiful and well presented. A key strength of being far from the madding crowd is also... More
