My wife and I travelled to Nice late August 2012. It was part of a 5 week trip around different parts of Europe. I found Gino and Valerie among the best hosts we had all trip - they went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure we enjoyed our stay and always had time to chat or answer questions about the area. Valerie even dropped us off at the local Indian takeaway so we could get some dinner after the bus service had stopped so we didn't have to walk down the hill!
The hotel is not 5 star so neither are the facilities but for the price I believe you get a very good deal. The hotel has a classic french riviera character about it. The views over Nice from our upstairs balcony room were incredible - however there were trees in a neighbours yard which would likely have blocked some of the view from the downstairs rooms so keep that in mind when booking. The room was neatly presented, no issues with noise from other rooms. We were travelling at the end of summer and the nights were quite warm so without air con, we needed to sleep with the shutters open which cooled the room enough to sleep - being up on the hill meant we got some breeze which you wouldn't get down on the flats.
Location is very good for the price - easy bus ride down to bottom of the hill and tram through the rest of nice. We also had a car and found parking on the road opposite the hotel very convenient. Would recommend having breakfast at the hotel at least once to try Gino's freshly baked croissants - very yummy.
Overall the feel of Le Panoramic was like staying with family friends and it was nice to be up on the hill at the end of a day exploring, removed from the hustle and bustle of central Nice. With any luck Australia will be inheriting this lovely couple at some point but for now Gino and Valerie's homestyle hospitality will be waiting for you at Le Panoramic.
