We just got back from a stay at the Palais de la Mediterranee. The hotel is right on the Promenade des Anglais in a wonderful location in Nice. Our reception was great and we were lucky to get into our room at 10:00 am. The room was small but very pretty with a nice balcony. Although we were across the street from the beach, the view from the balcony is partially blocked by the historic facade of the hotel. I would have hoped at $882 per night for a little better view and was a bit surprised that breakfast was not included. Not a problem because there are many places nearby. I would recommend this hotel.
