We stayed 3 nights at the Excelsior hotel in Nice. We paid for 2 nights and got our third free. The hotel was beautiful and very clean. The staff at the reception desk were very friendly and helpful. When we arrived the man gave us a map and showed us the routes to some of the main tourist areas. The... More

A very good boutique hotel. Nicely decorated. Good quality breakfast (a bit at the expensive, but still acceptable). We had a spotless room at the back of the hotel and we enjoyed the silence at night. Room facilities were very good. Staff is very helpful. A big advantage is also that the hotel is at less than 100m from the... More

Located close to the Nice Central Gare, where you shall take a train or a bus to Villefranche, Eze, Monaco or San Remo. Near the hotel, there are some atractions and interesting places, like Place Massena, the English Sidewalk besides the beach. EOtherwise, is an expensive hotel for what it offers, but stands out employees of service in all sectors.

I have just stayed a couple of nights at the Excelsior Hotel in Nice. There are definitely some positives about this hotel but there are also some negatives. On the positive side, the hotel is very close to the main train station in town. You can walk there easily in two to three minutes. The staff at the hotel are... More

Close to train station which we could see from our verandah .Access to the rest of Nice was perfect.If I can think of one negative it was that the lift... More

The Excelsior is very local to the SNCF station, just across the road, 3 minutes, so the location in the centre with a 10-15 stroll to the promenade was just right for me. A very fine building and superbly updated inside in a modern style and top quality fittings and furnishings. I had a room at the front and although... More

This is a good hotel choice for Nice. We've got a relatively big room facing the courtyard which is clean, comfortable and quiet. Very near the main train station for travel to/from the airport, Cannes, or Monaco. Free Wifi works well. Good service overall from the reception. Only minor drawback is that the toiletries (shower gel, soap) were somehow not... More
