We stayed at the Nice Riviera for 3 nights and had a very pleasant stay. We were greeted warmly upon our arrival and when we asked about places for dinner, drinks, etc, all of the staff within earshot were throwing out their suggestions. The rooms are small, but actually quite spacious for this part of Europe and I particularly liked that door separating the bedroom area from the bathroom/closet area. I also found the toiletries to be very fragrant and pleasant. My only complaint about the bathroom area is that the shower created quite a mess as there is only a half - door on the tub. Easy fix; just lay an extra towel on the floor to sop up the water. The rooms were very clean and I found the beds to be very comfortable! The room did get quite hot at night, despite us turning on the a/c, so we slept with the window open to allow some cool air in. The included breakfast was a huge plus and they had a nice variety of breads, pastries and also had eggs (although maybe instant), bacon, sausages, excellent fruit, yogurt, coffee, espresso ,etc. Considering the price of food in Nice, the included breakfast also adds a good value to the price of the hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast! I also enjoyed using the pool, hot tub, and sauna.
The location was great also. It was less than a 10 minute walk to old town (nice bars, flower market, etc) and to the promenade on the beach, and a very lovely park with beautiful views of the city. There was also a Christmas market just a few blocks away that had neat crafts and snacks. of course, there is shopping in every direction from the hotel, so just take a turn and have your pick! It is not a beach front property, but very close. The price of parking was 19 euro a day, which is consistent with other lots in the area (we paid 18 for a garage a couple of blocks away) so if you have a car, plan to add a pretty large chunk to parking. It would be nice if there was a discount on parking for people staying at the hotel, but I suppose charging quite a bit for parking is just an industry standard, so can't fault the hotel for that.
Overall, it is worthy of an "excellent" rating based on the money I spent and the service and standards of the hotel. I would surely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.
