The Splendid Nice Hotel is located right in the centre of Nice| in a privileged location just 400 metres from the beach.
"Nice hotel and staff"
I recently spent 2 nights in the Splendid Hotel whilst participating in the Nice-Cannes marathon. I booked a marathon package at a very reasonable rate. Check-in was friendly and the staff were very helpful and happy to answer any questions that were posed to them (there were a lot) and were happy to correct me if I made an error with French (it had been a while since I spoke it!). Room was nice and spacious however it was quite dated and was disappointing not to have a balcony, although I accept not everyone can have one. Dinner the night before the race was very good, plenty of pasta dishes, perfect for carb loading, as was the marathon breakfast at 0430. The views from the restaurant on the 8th floor (top) are superb and you can get a full panoramic view of Nice from up there. Definately a highlight. I did not have dinner the 2nd night, however the dishes were well priced. Breakfast the 2nd morning was a little disappointing with not a huge amount of choice. Although it is a buffet breakfast, I believe that 19€ is very steep. I did not use the gym facilities for obvious reasons, however they are in the process of being renovated. I didn't use the spa either, as prices were steep, but again, it is a spa! The hotel is less than 10 minutes from the train station and 5 minutes from Promenade des Anglais and the beach. If I was able to give an extra half star rating, I would. I will look to stay in this hotel again next year for the marathon.
"Excellent location, great rooftop lounge"
The Splendid Hotel is a upscale hotel with a very good location. You are within walking distance of the old town and a few short blocks to the beach. Our room had an enormous balcony/patio. The highlight was the rooftop lounge...tremendous views and a warm atmosphere...staff were friendly and the food was excellent.
"Great boutique hotel to stay while visiting Nice"
Found that this hotel was reasonable, friendly and in a great location to see the sites in Nice. The roof-top pool and bar was a bonus. Very comfortable and the staff were terrific, spoke excellent English and VERY helpful.
"The greatest roof ever!!"
Absolute luxury this hotel and spa. Room was so big you could ride a bike in it, free wi-fi, bathroom had a very large spa bath and seperate shower. A verandah that stretched the entire length of the room big enough for 20 people, and a bed I could be happy to live in the rest of my life. The roof top was split into se rooms and levels with a bar, restaurant, swimming pool, spa area, covered seating and lounges, an eating/drinking level above the bar and a further higher level full of comfy lounges with a 360 degree view of nice. The day spa was discounted as a guest of the hotel and the staff were amazingly engaging speaking multiple languages with ease. 5 star hotel worth every penny
"Lovely week in the Splendid"
My wife and I stayed in a deluxe room on the 4th floor for a week on a B&B basis. The hotel is located approx. 10min walk from the seafront and lots of restaurants close by. The room that we had had a large balcony which was great for sunbathing. The room was large with a bathroom with spa bath and separate corner shower. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very nice. The restaurant for breakfast was on the rooftop with fantastic views of the city.The breakfast had a good choice and tasty. Also on the rooftop were lovely seating areas and a small swimming pool. The drinks at the hotel were expensive but that is the same throughout Nice. Our room faced onto Rue Gounod which was quite noisy through the night with passing traffic,bin lorries emptying bins and workmen digging up the road at 7am. This was not the fault of the hotel, however, a bit annoying after a few nights. All in all we really enjoyed the hotel and would recommend it if you fancy a trip to Nice.
