we stayed at the hotel for 7 nights last week and we loved it. Fab decor throughout the hotel and our room and extremely clean. The staff were really friendly and very helpful if needed. We had breakfast included which was really nice, wide variety of foods. We really liked the fact that breakfast was also served until 10.30am every... More

My wife and I stayed at the Excelsior for 3 nights in July 2014 in a classic double. Overall, our experience is largely consistent with the reviews on TP. The hotel is roughly 100m from the train station, which makes day trips to Monaco, Cannes, etc an easy adventure. Admittedly about a 10 min walk away from the hustle and... More

Only 20mins taxi ride from the airport, 5mins walk to the train station and 10-15mins walk the main area of Nice, and Promenade des Anglais. There are also a lot of local grocery stores and cafes nearby. Perfect location. With the train station only 5mins walk away, we were able to do day trips to places such as Monaco, Cannes,... More

We stayed here due to a transport strike in Italy. It is in a convenient location to the train station, but not really in the nicest of areas. The hotel and outdoor gardens are lovely, however we had a shoebox of a room. The toilet was smaller than than that in an airplane, and it was, well, a struggle. The... More

We only stayed one night but immediately fell in love with this hotel. The interior design is fantastic with everything from the carpets to the furniture taking inspiration from travel. All the staff were very polite and helpful speaking several languages. The bar in the garden is a delight and breakfast was very good with a good selection. The hotel... More

I would like to start with a warm recommendation of the hotel due to a genuinely warm and helpful staff. This is a small(ish) hotel with more personnal service than the big hotels. We decided to book the hotel without breakfast due to the 15€ price (decided to buy breakfast at a cafe instead). At arrival we found out that... More

And that we might get our money through the hotel's insurance besides we called the police.. but according to management being reimbursed may take time!!! I can't understand how... More

Not the best location but one of the nicest hotel stays in our 2 week trip. Staff was amazing and rooms were way above average. Loved it. The outside bar was a great touch as well. The staff really is at your service the entire time. The wifi changing every 24 hours gets annoying but overall a great experience

This hotel is artfully decorated throughout with high ceilings. The superior room with double bed was well decorated and had sufficient room, electric outlets, lighting, small refrigerator, and amenities such as robes, slippers, hair dryer, and toiletries. For breakfast we had more options than we had seen elsewhere: coffee and a roll, 4 euros; coffee, juice and three small croissants... More
