Until we arrived and saw this hotel everywhere on postcards, fridge magnets, etc we did not realise how famous a landmark it is. Definitely a luxury hotel with a unique style of decoration (and from the number of portraits an owner who loves herself :) )
You can not criticise the service and friendliness of the staff , which as a first time visitor to France was an unexpected surprise as we expected them to be a bit 'stand offish').
Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Good location in mid position on the promenade and only 15 mins from the airport.
However, it was not worth £275 per night and 24€ for two coffee's is clearly unjustifiable. No tea making in the rooms (sorry a must for the English) and a shower where you had to keep your hand on the tap as the temperature kept going up and down. Wifi was down for two of the four days we spent there
Went to Monaco/Monte Carlo by train , which was easy and worth half a day. Old town area the best for shopping and restaurants.
Nice definitely worth a return but would not return to the negresco next time - it's a one off extravagance in my view.
