We stayed here recently for a couple of days - great location in a very local neighbourhood overlooking the centre of Nice. We walked everywhere and it was only a 15 mins walk down to the Old Town or main train station plus 15/20 mins to the seafront. Understood it is a bit of a steep climb on the way... More

I only stayed one night at the end of a tour of the French Riviera. The room was small (as is typical of Europe) but comfortable. The service was very good. It is something of a hike to get back up the hill from town but the view is worth it. I widh I could have stayed longer and I... More

People are nice and the hotel is beautiful. You get a good view since it is located slightly above the city. Breakfast is rich and great, too. The hotel just has a few rooms and you feel like being in a family. Just a fantastic experience over all.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The view from the hotel is great and we were able to spend a peaceful time by eating a delicious breakfast. From the hotel to the old town of Nice it is about a 15-minute by walk. Furthermore, there is a bus stop near to this hotel. I highly recommend the hotel!

Everything about this little gem of a hotel was perfect! Phillipe at reception gave us a warm greeting and overview on arrival. Stayed 4 nights and could easily have stayed longer. You must be able to walk uphill to access which does not bother us at all except with the July heat it did make it a little tough at... More

The room, service, comfort and location were equally pleasant. A nice gem of a hotel hidden in a quiet location in Nice. Highly recommended. Also: the breakfast was wonderful! From the hotel it is an easy walk to the old centre of Nice. The hotel also arranges for an excellent taxi service to the airport!

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Charming, beautiful clean room and quiet. We had a nice evening drink on the terrace. It is a bit far from down town Nice, up the hill but we enjoyed the walk. I highly recommend the hotel!

Whenever I travel to Nice, I ALWAYS go to "le Petit Palais" the staff always remembers me, welcomes me, accomodates me in every way possible. The hotel is very clean, the staff is wonderful and the location is perfect. It has it all for me, and the pool is awesome :))))

Instead of two beds we got one with one duvet. My husband who set out to get an extra duvet cover was met with extreme rudeness by one employee who (sipping white wine) told him that the hotel was not five stars but three. "Go and sleep with your wife like you always do at home!!" Not possible as we... More

I stayed here for a long weekend with my friend back in June. It was an amazing and relaxing hotel, perfect for a break away from your busy life. We spent most of our time chilling out in the garden of the hotel, reading books and taking a dip in the pool. Snacks, wine and cigarettes can be ordered to... More

Dear Highlander, Thank you for your stay in Le Petit Palais and your kind words about the staff and the property. Thank you also to precise the location of the hotel, down the hill of cimiez. It will be useful for the future guests. You have perfectly appreciated the "way of life" in Le Petit Palais with his relaxing garden... More
