"Splendid all round!"
Lovely quiet hotel, minutes from the promenade. Not beautiful from the front, but amazing views from rooftop terrace and pool. Restaurant on 8th floor, great hot buffet breakfast. Our room was at the rear but with balcony, table and chairs, still a pleasant view over city.
we stayed here for 4 nights for a short break. All staff were fantastic, very friendly, helpful and polite. our room was very spacious and clean with a balcony overlooking the street. The bathroom was very clean and again large. All amenities were there that you would need e.g. iron/board, kettle, safe, shower gel. breakfast and meals are served on 8th floor which has a great view overlooking the city, food was varied and good. Pool was small but as the water was so cold not many people went in! there are sun loungers around the pool but if this is full there are more situated higher up on another level. There was also a hot tub but the area was closed due to refurbishment. you can park at the hotel for €24 per day, very expensive however there isn't much room on the streets, also as breakfast is included it evens itself out. There is a spa in the hotel but we did not get to use this as the prices were high. Prices in the bar on 8th floor are very dear €4.50 for a small bottle of pepsi, i would recommend going to the carrefour supermarket a few minutes walk away. Location is great about 5-10 minutes walk to the beachfront, the scenery is stunning. i would stay at the hotel again in future.
"Some good things some bad things"
Location, quite good close to beach and old town. Staff was friendly and changed us to other room without problems. Our first room had terrible noise poisoning like someone was constantly drilling. Plus goes to good breakfast, with veggies, potatoes and many other tasty foods. Service at breakfast was also great. In april the pool was freezing cold and pool area was stuffed with used dishes and looked not as clean and inviting. Rooms look old and in need some update to modern age. Rooms where clean. Best points go to the friendly staff. If you ask would I return, then probably not, because of old interior.
"Ups and downs"
The positives: The service at the reception and for breakfast were very friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable enough with a jacuzzi tub, a balcony, and a spacious bed. It was also cleaned every day. Les positives: Le service a la reception ètait très sympatique. La chambre était assez confortable, avec une baignoire jacuzzi, un balcon et lit spacieux. The negatives: Service for dinner and at the bar was disappointing and borderline unfriendly. Dinner was good but a bit overpriced. The room was very warm and there was no Air conditioning (especially worrisome since we were staying with our baby). The rooftop pool was very cold. Les négatifs: Le service au bar et au dinner était pas très accueillant. Le diner était bon mais un peu cher. La chambre était très chaude et il y avait pas de AC. L'eau de la piscine était très froide.
4th time staying at the Splendid. Got a free room upgrade on arrival to a deluxe room. Room (316) has been recently refurbished with a new bathroom which has a whirlpool bath and rainfall shower. Sleep was only slightly marred by the noisy people in the next room who managed to wake me up at 02:00. Not the Hotel's fault though! Breakfast is standard and was included in the price of my room. Still here and eating at L'Essenciel, the 8th floor restaurant this evening before my flight home tomorrow. Worth a mention are the Reception staff and Thierry the concierge. Nothing was too much trouble for Thierry and never has been at any time I've stayed at The Splendid. He deserves a pay rise! Le Directeur M.Tschann should be very proud of having a great hotel and wonderful staff. I've tried other hotels in Nice but always return to The Splendid and will do for many years to come,
