“Perfect location”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Just returned from 5 nights stay at this hotel. Perfect location, close to old town with its many restaurants and shops. Fast check in, staff were very friendly and special mention to the Concierge, both of whom were excellent, very informative and went out of their way to assist. Room was spacious and very clean, housekeeping attended twice daily. Only negative is that there are no tea/coffee making facilities provided, which is surprising from a 5 star hotel. We ate in the restaurant only once, during a rainy evening, food was excellent. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel, but there are several cafes within a 5 minute walk who offer both English and continental breakfast for approx. 10-15 euro. Be careful of taxi drivers, our ride to airport, which is 13 minutes away, was quoted at 30 euros by driver at the hotel but we were charged 45, at destination he informed us there would be a 'little extra' for our luggage (1 suitcase) All in all we would highly recommend this hotel to couples visiting Nice.

We very nearly didn't book this hotel but are so thankful we did!

We stayed at the Palais for 5 nights following our wedding and we chose it for its ambiance, location, and the need to relax after a week of wedding festivities.

We got the bus from Nice airport to the hotel, with the bus stopping literally right outside. We were welcomed by the doorman who promptly took our suitcases into the reception for us.

Check in was swift and plesant. I was slightly disappointed that there was no mention of it being our honeymoon, even with me emailing prior to arriving to say so!

We went up to our room, 617, and fell in love. Amazing size with lots of storage space, bathroom was spacious with the toilet separate. Own little balcony with table and sun lounger to take in the views of the sea. The only issue I had was the bed type, it was two singles pushed together to make a double. Again not something I would have thought was suitable for honeymooners!

We started to unpack and plan our day when we received a knock on the door, there was a member of hospitality team with a bottle of champagne and macarons to wish us congratulations on our marriage. This indeed was a lovely touch from the hotel!

Breakfast: what can I say, delicious delicious, delicious, so much so that I am still craving their fresh bread! Small issues again, only one person to cook eggs when there is a line of 7/8 people isn't the best. Also when sat outside, be aware the pigeons will lurk until you leave your table to nab some food! All in all the breakfast was lovely. The staff even let us take away a baguette as we couldn't finish it!

Restaurant/bar: We didn't dine in the restaurant but had a drink at the hotel bar. Lovely little place with a pianist playing some great tunes in the corner. The staff made my husband's cocktail well and were courteous and attentive as well.

Room service: We ordered room service one evening and again this was delicious. We shared a plate of Gnocchi with some fries. Gnocchi was amazing, light and the sauce was indeed fresh. The fries were as they should be, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Yum!

Concierge: The highlight for us has to be the concierge service, Brice was brilliant. He came across friendly and attentive and listened to what we wanted and gave us handy tips. It felt like we were talking to our friend. He made dinner reservations for us and gave us names of places to buy the best chocolates in town! He would even give us a little wave every time we walked through the lobby!

Facilities: We used the pool a couple of times, and were surprised at how un-busy it was. We had the pool to ourselves the whole time! Water was warm and clean and towels were available too. We used the steam room as well. It was big enough for about 4 people, but again we had it to ourselves!

Overall this was definitely a great stay and we will surely be back. I think if they had picked up the fact that it was our honeymoon and gave us a room to suit, as well as a couple of other points like the lines at breakfast, I would be giving this place 5 stars. Don't worry though, we will be back. :)

Room Tip: Rooms ending in '17' are the larger executive rooms with a view.

Location is great, right across the street from the beach. Rooms are large by European standards, balcony on the rooms which was nice. Pool was great and free compared to the private beach of $20 euro per person. However if you want to go to the beach pay the $ as the beach is hard to lay on.

I took a three day break in Nice with my two oldest kids aged 7 and 10. I booked the hotel through the online travel agency whatahotel.com which I can strongly recommend. It gave me great added value such as an upgrade of the room and breakfast - on top of the best room rate! Richie and his colleagues there are so serviceminded and friendly and I would recommend there services to anyone.
The heated hotel pool was a success as the beaches aren't too child friendly in Nice. The kids spent more time in the pool than in the room! And I also enjoyed the pool area with sun beds and towels and it wasn't too crowded this early in June. Great breakfast, very friendly staff, clean and spaceous room with balcony. I really enjoyed the sea view, which I got due to the upgrade and I would really like to stay here again. I will definately check with whatahotel.com before making my next hotel reservation.

We stayed here for 3 nights with our 3 children after a week in Corsica. We had 2 interconnecting rooms which were perfect for our stay. From check in with the very friendly staff who could not do enough for us. Breakfast was fantastic every morning and the restaurant for dinner provided lovely gourmet food and also provided suitable meals for our children.
The pool area was great and the location across the road from the beach and walking distance to old Nice. We caught the tourist train which the children enjoyed . Would definately return to this hotel.

This is a very good hotel in the perfect location, right on the promenade so you can step out across the road from the beach. It is also only a 10 minute walk from the main city centre for restaurants, and if you are in Nice to shop, you are only a couple of minutes away from the designer boutiques.

The rooms are very nice, and one of the best hotels I have stayed in in France. There is a good sized bathroom with a separate shower and bath, with a w/c separate to the bathroom. The hallway has plenty of wardrobe space, including a safe but no tea/coffee making facilities or iron. There is also a door separating the hallway and bathroom.

The beds were very comfortable and if I return to Nice I would seriously consider staying at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing out towards the promenade as some of the rear facing rooms don't have a gr...

This is an attractive hotel with god rooms and a hearty breakfast. However we had taken a decent camera in order to photograph the Monaco GP. We were unable to get the camera in the safe so put it in the wardrobe between use. We stayed 2 nights and on the 3rd day we were being transferred to Nice harbour to our cruise ship. When we packed we noticed the camera had gone. We immediately reported it, then spent the next 2 hours while the duty manager 'checked the security cameras'. The CCTV showed us taking the camera out and returning it, nobody but the chambermaid was seen entering the room. We were told not to report to the police until the internal investigation was completed. Eventually we were told the coach was leaving to the ship and were told we'd be kept informed. Following several emails we were told that nothing could be seen on the CCTV and we should report to the police. By that time we were in the Med so were unable to report until we arrived at Marseille station on the way home. The police were pleasant but unable to take a report without the camera serial number, which we did not take with us abroad (why would you??). So now we're home and the hotel are unable or unwilling to do more, so our visit to this hotel was very expensive indeed! Never again.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for your review on TripAdvisor.

We were very pleased to welcome you at Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée and are absolutely sorry to hear about your dissatisfaction because of the loss of your camera.

After internal investigations, we confirmed you that we could see on the security camera the chambermaid busy clearing your room but we didn’t see any camera. Unfortunately, no official investigation can be conducted by the Police if a complaint is not registered at the Police station. We explained you previously that the complaint shoud have to be registered at the Airport before leaving.

We renew you our most sincere apologies.

Best regards,
