“Beautiful views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

I stayed at this hotel for just one night for business. The (deluxe) room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the views from the patio stunning. The bathroom was spacious and modern. I did not like how the gym only opened at 8:00 and was very small. The hotel is also a bit of a maze and confusing to get around. To get to my room, I had to take three different elevators.

From the hotel it is easy to access the promenade (right in front of the hotel), the historic city center and the beautiful park on the hill behind the hotel.

Stayed May 2014, traveled on business

We stayed here at the end of April 2014 to celebrate our Pearl wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. The staff are friendly and efficient. We had a junior suite with views of the bay and sea views. The room was very clean, well furnished and comfortable. The hotel was in the perfect location to explore and enjoy Nice.
We ate in the restaurant which was Bistro style and the food was well presented and delicious.
We made use of the heated pool, sauna and the roof top jacuzzi which were all well maintained and fab!
We chose to have breakfast in our room on the balcony most mornings and there wasn't a surcharge for this.
The only minus was not having tea and coffee facilities in the room. I had peppermint tea in the restaurant/bar area for 6 euros! For a tea bag and hot water I felt this was expensive when it didn't need to be. Overall the hotel is a fantastic hotel and we had a great time .

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view as the views are stunning

Firstly - La Perouse IS still the best hotel in Nice , for position / value / staff / chef etc.
BUT -........................
come on guys !! - what has happened to the "buffet breakfast ". ??
It WAS one of the best - now - it is not even average.
EVERYTHING is in short supply , no matter what time you breakfast .
The meats consisted of only a tasteless ham or BADLY sliced salami.
No hot dishes except by paying extra.
Butter and cheeses frozen solid.
We will probably stay again , but would hope that there is a "re-think" on the breakfast.
P.S. - if anyone knows the "secret" of getting a room on the 4th or 5th floors - please tell us !! , as once again we could get no higher than the 3rd. !!, even though we requested higher on our reservation.
Sorry to have to post such a negative re breakfast ( & floor level ) on what is our favourite hotel.

Room Tip: Obiously book a sea view , the higher the better.

Dear Brian and Avril,
Thank you so much for choosing again the Hotel la Perouse for your stay in Nice. We are flattered to know we are your favorite hotel and you consider us the best hotel in Nice; in the same time we are sorry you had a lesser impression of the breakfast change. Indeed we have now a continental buffet available and propose hot dishes on request and with a supplement. This change is actually meant to please a large number of our guests and has been implemented as a result of their suggestions. We will however take good note of your comment. Please try to contact us directly for your next booking and we will do our best to offer a room on a higher floor. We are looking forward welcoming you again soon.
Kind regards,
Irina Iovan Director of Sales

Location:
- Wonderfully situated at the extremity of the Promenade des Anglais and right next to the old town.
- Close to shops, restaurants and main attractions.
- Easy access to public transportation (e.g. ten minutes’ walk to the buses going to Eze, Monte Carlo etc.).
- Ten minutes by car and twenty five minutes on foot to the Nice SNCF train station.

The Hotel:
- Charming hotel albeit small and rustic. The reception area is small and it is not as straightforward to navigate through the hotel.
- The amenities are quite basic: A small gym and Jacuzzi on the 6th floor, a small outdoor pool.
- The staff are not particularly service orientated/friendly and the quality of service is hit and miss. For instance:
o We called the reception for extra blankets at 10pm and the answer was a blunt ‘no, the staff has gone home’.
o The lady at the reception gave us the wrong information on how to get to the airport and to places around.
o After checking out, we asked the hotel to keep our luggage. When we wanted to collect our luggage, the girl at the reception said that she would rather wait for the porter as it was not her job. The luggage was right in front of her!
- We had a room just by the garden which was lovely. We had to go through the restaurant to get to the hotel which was quite awkward especially on the first day as we were dragging our luggage through the restaurant during the dinner service.
- The room size was average and the room itself was stuffy, smelling of damp and cigarettes. I don’t think the air conditioning was working properly as the room was still stuffy even after reducing the temperature to 16 degrees C. Good size bathroom but the curtain in the tub was not clean and kept clinging on me during the shower.
- Free basic (low-speed) internet is provided, good for emails and basic browsing.
- Breakfast was lovely on the patio in the morning, especially on a sunny day.

We stayed at La Perouse at the end of the Promenade des Anglaise, Nice for four nights in April 2014. After trying the Hotel de la Mediterranee (Poor), the West End hotel (very poor) and the Negresco (will never return, except to the bar) La Perouse was a truly exceptional hotel experience. The staff were totally delightful; helpful, courteous and willing to go the extra mile to ensure guest satisfaction.
The food in the restaurant was very good; excellently cooked and professionally served.
The only small gripe was that there was no mirror in the bedroom, except for the bathroom mirror.
The bedrooms are rather small, but that shortcoming was more than compensated by all the other positives…including the magnificent views of the Baie des Anges. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Choose a room with sea view...it's worth the extra money

I loved every minute of our relaxing weekend break here. Firstly it is a very good location - next to the old town for shops and restaurants, round the corner from the fabulous Bistrot du Port at the marina (you would need to book) and next to the lift up to the ruined castle and park with panoramic views over Nice and along the coast.

We had a very warm welcome from reception. We got there early as we had an early flight out from Bristol and were told that our room could be available from 12 noon which we appreciated. Staff throughout the hotel were unfailingly polite & helpful. Our superior seaview room was immaculate with a small balcony and great views. There was enough room for storage although I would have preferred a bath rather than shower - a minor point & no real problem for a weekend.

The pool area was very quiet when we were at the hotel. I had the pool to myself & the area was beautifully maintained - it does feel like a little oasis away from the promenade which was fairly hectic even in April.

Breakfast out in the Le Patio restaurant was super - lots of choice & it was great to people watch as we sat under the shade of an orange tree. There is an additional cost for omlettes & scrambled eggs ( 10 euro for the omlette option) - but given the choice from the buffet we were not tempted. There is a squeeze your own orange juice machine that I found rather splashy - you have been warned!

We had a cocktail and then dinner on our first night. I thought the prices fair for the quality and service. The wine we chose was 50 euro - but that was for a bottle of very nice Sancerre. We also were given a Limoncello each at the end of our meal which was appreciated.

Wines by the glass in the bar area were reasonable - 9 euro for a glass of Sancerre - which in this location seemed good value for me.

I would return next time I am in Nice.

The clientele were generally well heeled older people from England, America & Japan - who all seemed to go to bed early - as indeed did we!

Recommended by two friends, separately. I was first deterred by comments that it was unsuitable for people with limited mobility. So, I emailed the hotel and was assured that, if I could manage a few steps to reception and a few more to the dining room (if used) it was OK. I had no problem but it would not be suitable for someone in a wheelchair. Transport was arranged to and from Nice Airport and was good, but it would be much cheaper to take the airport bus. Buffet breakfast was good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. For the first time in 40 years of travelling, I forgot to take a 3-pin adapter; one was supplied in minutes!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are worth the extra Euros.
