Beach access directly across from the hotel. Rooms were old and tired as compared to the new lobby/bar area and on-line photos. This hotel needs an exterminator!
Near sea. Not far from Monaco (5 minutes by car)
Excellent stay and not overpriced, unlike many of the hotels we stayed at on this trip to France. I paid more for rooms in moderate 3 star motels than I have paid in a good hotel in central London. Even accounting for the weak pound, prices are silly, except for the Vicoria which was the lowest price we paid on the whole 2 week trip.
- location, excellent breakfast, beach just across the street - car parking is a misunderstanding. The hotel should note, that they have 2 places, in spite of this they are trying to pack 4 cars. You should rather treat it as " no parcing" hotel. The rest was really good.
It was close to the beach / promenade, clean and stuff was helpful. The bathroom needed renovation but at least it was clean.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The reception/dining area and terrace is beautifully redecorated. The breakfast was first class, although a bit expensive if they want to attract more clients. The noise from the traffic on the sea-facing side of the hotel is something they need to address. Apparently they will be fitting double-paned glass in November '09.
The view and position were wonderful
The view from our balcony over the sea was lovely and the lounge/bar area that had been upgraded was lovely to sit and have your breakfast in. Only part of the hotel has been upgraded the other part is shabby, carpets very stained, we found an adult toy under our bed! Make sure you book a room that is overlooking the sea and that it is in the upgraded part.
The location, the breakfast and the appearance of the hotel. It feels lilke the French Reviera, right there on the water and nice beach. The breakfast is worth whatever they charged, I don't recall, but really excellent. Overall, great ambiance. Nice, big tv, english- language channels, also German, Italian, and of course French. Good internet access. We booked the standard double room, and recommend the upgraded rooms. We stayed in the upgraded room last year and it was way nicer; but the standard room is adequate with still ok furnishings. REally crummy tv remote, the plus-minus kind that forces you ro scroll channels; clumsy when there are many channels.
Free WiFi, beautiful view to sea
the interior of the hotel is exelent, very historical! The restoran is also very doog! Service of the reception and also reception manager was full boor. We planed to stay 21 day- and changed the hotel to another one on the 2 day of our stay!!!
Bad brekfast? bad plage, bad service, wery high preis - but only in this year
Very helpful staff; they even said "Have a nice stay" in my language that was amazing! Excellent localtion; place full of arts. You have a feeling that you stay in a museum but you really like it! Just spledid! Nothing, just perfect place.
Wonderful wonderful staff and location location location. The rooms were well appointed and in a style that suited the hotel. The balcony was a great place to get a lovely view of the sea. The rooms were larger then most European hotel rooms and air conditioned which made it very comfortable in the August heat. The public areas and dining rooms were very comfortable and charming. Good business center with easy access. The carpet in the halls made it hard to move luggage around and did not fit the period and style of the hotel. Some of the art didn't suit the hotel ambiance. The carpet in our room was very worn and old. The bathroom had chipped sharp tiles and had not been updated which was a little disappointing for the price point. We were also disappointed that no one informed of the beach facilities available.
Perfect location, nice sea views, really interesting interiors. Some service points, at the reseption and consierge points.
The ambiance was nice- classic old style .The rooms were big and the view spectacular. Unfortunately the bath tub drain cover was not working so it required a nail file to remove the cover to drain the tub.This was repeated every day of our stay without the staff fixing it! The room was not cleaned on returning in the afternoon and we were told by reception that we had to call for cleaning !The wall tiles had black mould which Is really unacceptable in a hotel of this class.also,our room had chipped paint around doors and peeling wallpaper trim.All in all,This hotel needs revamping.On the plus side, the location is the best in Nice. The staff were very poor in responding to complaints - no apologies ever.My room smelled of mould ,to discover next day that there was a furnace type room opening into my closet,which did not have a door.On complaining ,I was given an excuse instead of an apology. Also,after staying 3 days,I was stopped by a security doorman on entering the lobby ,to question me if I was staying at the hotel. Very very upsetting and again ,after telling him yes ,no apology. Good staff should know the guests and be carful before causing an embarrassing moment. The service at breakfast was very poor and the buffet layout difficult to manage due to the tightness of the restaurant.
Good taste and comfort all over + restaurant Chatecler - the best I ever experienced food/wines and ambiance. Nope.
Historic building, beautiful lobby Rooms definitely need refurbishment
Staff is very friendly, breakfast was excellent, hotel in general (colours, furniture...) Room for breakfast is too small for so many people
I enjoyed the fact that the hotel was very central with easy access to buses and trains.
convenient location, not too noisy
proximity to local transportation international channels size of room was too small even for one person extremely loud at night rude employees!
Location was good and hotel's decor fun and kitschy. Small room.
Location No parking facilities offered to guests, however there is a public parking with preferred rates overnight
Location was excellent I wouldn't say it was 4 star. It was very basic and tatty in parts.
Near to the City, clean room Room was very smal
We were made very welcome and the Hotel was very well placed for the park and shopping. The view was hardly inspiring.
We got a good deal for the 'Privileged room' and we were given an upgrade to the next level as it was out of season and they had the ability to offer it to us. Was great to have a large room for a few days. Close to the beach and loads of shopping, restaurants, cafes and the stop for the hop on hop off tour bus. They had all the flyers of tourist things at the counter. Wifi was good. No TV reception for english channels.
The availability and efficiency of the staff. The quality of the infra-structure, atmosphere of the hotel and its location. The room bathroom could be equipped with more towel hangers. During breakfast it would be best if the service staff would not start cleaning the room (washing the chairs, etc.) while people are finishing their meal. It disturbs a bit the breakfast experience.
Great location, very close to the Messena Place and the old town. Restaurants close by. Rooms are a decent size as far as French hotels go and for once the air conditioning actually worked. Staff spoke English and were helpful. We were only at the hotel for a quick overnight stay and didn't arrive until 9:30 pm so we didnt spend a long time in the hotel. Had breakfast in a cafe in the market.
Location close to the sea front The Pool was very small and the sunning area was very small and could only take a small number of sunbathers - we had to instead use the private beach which cost 34 Euros
The majority of your staff could speak english very well. and they were always very friendly and professional particularily Olivier the concierge
staff, service, breakfast, location - excellent, by the sea, good shopping, easy to get to railway station, old city, shopping streets by walk
Large spacious room, robes, slippers, fabulous bath There was no blackout curtain... Luckily I brought an eye mask!
convenience to activities and shopping Bedroom carpets not properly hoovered,air con.not perceptily effective.
Friendliness and courtesy of staff None
our room was facing the mediterrania, so beautiful. it is so close to restaurants in town and shopping.loved going to the casino after dinner. it was so clean and spacious (our room).
It was right on the beach front and a short walk to the two tour buses for Nice. The staff was very friendly, spoke many languages besides French, room service was excellent and very pleasant. No
Firstly the location was fantastic, 10mins from the airport and 10 min walk from the old town.Our room was beautiful and big with a big balcony over looking the sea. Could'nt fault it.
Over all a great experience since arrival, very good complementary high speed wireless internet , great breakfast and wonderful bath and shower along with quality interior, worth every cent.
Wonderful hotel. Excellent quality and service. Centrally located.
Location The noise from the road in a sea view room The breakfast far too expensive
The hotel staff were very nice and provided lots of advice on how to move around, what to visit etc. Room was very clean. There is no carpet and it is all white tile which made it look very bright and clean. The sea view and sunrise in the morning is worth every penny spent. Compared to many of the hotels we visited in France this was the best overall experience.
Renovated rooms on the 5th floor are fabulous, soundproofing is great. Location is excellent, staff is well trained and friendly.
Staff was really friendly
small bathroom without practical furniture!
Staff most helpful
Staff were friendly, the room was spacious and the location was perfect.
Overall style of the hotel and its superb location No parking - in a very busy and complex town
Nice place, nice staff
The hotel is in a superb position on the seafront, the staff are extremely courteous and efficient. Furnished very well in a beautiful French style and very clean.
I like the location the staff very not helpful at all ,had to ask 5 times at breakfast for hot water in order to have tea
The hotel seems over-rated. It gives you the feeling of being old or overused or at least not well taken care of. Beyond the intention of design...some of the fittings seem...cheap... Plus, the idea of having the bathtub in the room could be special, but it is not practical. The lights are also not thought in a practical way...
The Incredible architecture, fantastic staff and superb rooms.
Great location. Friendly staff. great room. All extars very expensive - eg breakfast or to have a drink in the bar (22 euros for one cognac !)
Beautiful design, good location for shopping The air conditioner didn't work well, it was very hot when we arrived at evening time. I called the reception two times, they promised to come and do something but they didn't, so we suffered the very hot room even in autumn time, +17 degree outside. They only fix it in the next morning.
You can hear everything in the corridor. not good service at all. horrible breakfast
great hotel ,great design , nothing
Food and Hotel were gorgeous. WiFi 7E for 30 mins in reception! No WiFi in bedrooms. Should be free in bedrooms.
Very accomodating, not too big and felt personal. The service is exceptional and the spa is a must-do.
Nice adjacent restaurant. Clean room with an bit odd, but original, design. Clearly visible that the hotel was renovated last year. Noise level in the room was a bit high due to the busy road outside.
Beautiful hotel, good location, very friendly and efficient staff. The hydrotherapy pool is lovely
the roses all around the place no service after 12 a.m. :(
Everyone at this hotel was ridiculously nice and sweet. They made use amazing food at the drop of a hat any time we asked for it, and were extremely helpful. It was a little hard to get some places without a car. The bus stop is very close, and there will be cabs, but this is not like a huge city where cabs are always easy to find and walking is easy.
location excellent, quiet, very good maid service, plenty of towels the tv selection is not for english speakers, the shower did not have hot water all the time and hard to control, bathroom small for so called luxury hotel, no coffee or tea with room, no couch in room, staff was aloof
Excellent location for shops and beach. Very nice hotel. Room not quite matching external areas of hotel. Overall,very nice hotel. Rooftop restaurant/bar/seating area impressive. Room very average.
What I liked most about the hotel is that it is very central. You are near the sea and shopping and restaurants are also very close. Probably coming from a country that has a "smoking ban" I felt that the smell in the corridors was quite overpowering, and this was made worse by the fact that air freshner's were used. I feel the hotel needs some freshening up. Breakfast also was delivered incorrectly to us on our first morning. We did not get what we ordered and it was cold.
The location, and room size. The hotel was very clean. We would have liked 2 chairs in the room. The bar area was basic and lack atmospere, it did not open until 6pm. The roof terrace was closed the whole time we were there.
Location Everything else. Room to small old dirty, poor breakfast, service. My Deluxe room was much small than my friend's superior ?
Location Staff not very helpful. Very slow to deal with guests at reception
Location Poor view from room. No coffee or tea making acilities in the room.
location, price and atractivness I does not have a pool and the room was small.
Location Room size
we were given room 401. We liked it because it was a renovated room with a view of the sea. The bed was very good. Towels were good and the supplies (soap, shower cap, body cream etc...) in the toilet were good.
The staff was polite, funny and spoke perfect English. The manager worked like crazy to help out at the breakfast. We were impressed. The rooms! They're fine but there was absolutely no where to put anything. Our room had one lawn chair. It was weird. It all feels a little too Miami Vice with the colors. Felt slightly Miami-ish/Golden Girls. Bottom floor was noisy with window open.
best price in offpeak season.
the ubication was excellent, the hotel is modern and the personal was very nice
the friendlyness of the staff at the reception desk The rooms were not cleaned adequately every day, sheets were not changed and soap was not restocked every day. Also, internet access was a rip off pricewise.
The hotel was very central and most of the staff were excellent.One guy was very rude. We only had one key for a shared room.Could not access the iron in evening before dinner and the receptionist did not do his best for us to get it. he was very abrupt saying they did not have one.The hairdryer was antiquated.very old and useless.need replacing.
upon checking in we reported the bed linen being dirty, it was noted and told it can only be tended to the next day, the next day the roomstaff still did not change it. I certainly won't stay at this hotel neither recomend it
The location to the shopping district. I think the decor and carpeting could be updated.
Great location - quite close to train station. Clean hotel and had a room with a balcony overlooking Rue Jean Medicin. Friendly staff. Nothing in particular.
The hotel is very well located Staff at the reception could have been more helpful
staff was friendly no maintenance in the evening.
Super helpful staff
It was right on the Esplanade D'Anglaise and very well located for everything.
A spacious bedroom & bathroom A little strange there was not shower curtain or door in the bathroom
Fabulous location and views, excellent access to old city
close proximity of sea and shops/restaurants. grandeur of a hotel with history and tradition.
nice view, good breakfast and restaurant
the location was ideal, the hotel very comfortable. In short, we were very satisfied.
Across the street from the beach, fairly good location with free internet. Excellent refurbished bathrooms. Staff was very friendly, particularly the bellman. Pictures on the hotel site do not match rthe ooms - stained rugs, old looking furniture, very hard beds and rough linens do make it a newly renovated room except for the wonderful bathrooms. However the size was perfect for two people and the rooms were clean.
Interior and seaview, helpful receptionist Poor breakfast, leaking ceiling
Very friendly helpfull staff
The friendly and helpful staff and the fact that it was so near to the bay No
the comfort of the hotel, clean and nice staff. However,a bit noisy from the traffic in front of the hotel
convenience and excellent service we could not make the air conditioning work in our room
Minibar was ampty. It was very very noisy.
We were impressed by the location, condition of the property, and the fact that the staff was friendly and capable of speaking language. The hair dryer in the bathroom was ancient and did not work very well.
Warm welcome and the fact that the reception team took the trouble to give us the same room that we had on our last stay.
Very friendly and helpful staff at all times. Nice to have a garden to sit in. Absolutely excellent restaurant is attached - Le Petit Prince. - outstanding. Had we known how good it was, we would have taken demi-pension. Noisy traffic on road along the beachfront promenade. Buses into town and back very unreliable. Fine for someone fit enough to walk everywhere, but my husband is lame.
Excellent breakfast on the hotel terrase next to sea.
The people at the front desk. Exterior of property is good. The breakfast staff; the room and the hotel interior
We were staying in this hotel for one night. All was excellent. The grand room with very comfortable bain, terasse with view on the beach, comfortable bed and a lot of Televesion channels from all over the world. The restaraunt in the hotel is really nice with good kitchen and cosy atmosphere. You really should go there and taste the different dishes. At reception you can get free map of the Menton city. The road to the hotel is nicely indicated in the city, easy to find. All was nice.
the location of the hotel was convenient to both the train station and old town. the accomodations were fairly typical of that level hotel. the staff was friendly and helpful, particularly when i had issues making an international call - the front desk attendant went further than i would have expected to help me make that call. i was a bit surprised when i asked for restaurant recommendations that i was sent all the way to old town. when i asked for something closer, i was advised to go to the restaurants immediately next door, not because of their quality but because it was a "What the heck, they're decent and they are next door" issue. i guess i would appreciate the hotel having a few quality restaurants in the immediate vicinity that they recommend to their guests who don't want to walk all the way to old town for a meal.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The storage of luggage if waiting for your room or a late flight. The hotel stacks the luggage in the breakfast room which is open to anyone. It would be safer if locked away.
Internet was not available in the room, there is no elevator in the part of the hotel I stayed - at least they could have offered to carry our baggages to the room.
it's amaizing, in the middel of the center of Nice,the best staff and the prise is very good for that location.
Good, central location. If you are given room in the worse part of the hotel (we were) - no wi fi, no lift and zero noise protection - you can easily hear what TV channel your neighbour is watching.
The place where the hotel is situated. (Location). The bed was small and hard.
clean, comfortable beds, friendly and helpful staff, excellent location
Nice, comfortable, clean, good central posizion, excellent staff.
Well positioned geographically and staff were very good - always polite, courteous and helpful. It did not appear to have bar facilities.
the staff are helpful and the location is convenient Basic room, but not really expecting too much. Price of Petit-Dejuener was such that I didn't bother to have any.
Good location, reasonable price Wifi reception was poor
Staff and the room how ever we could not get a smoking room
The roof-top terrace was a very relaxing area to sit. Also the conference meals and events were well organised. I found my bed too hard and the pillows too soft for my taste.
Standard of service. Having to pay for sun lounger.
nice and clean hotel, pro staff expensive rooms, very expensive food, services, minibar etc. - not good value for the money. Besides, the hotel is quite far from the city centre (ca. 30 min walking)
roof top swimming pool,serviced very well by public bus service,complimentary bus service offered by hotel,opposite beach double beds do not exist,have to request that two singles be made up as double.,use of beds at rooftop pool had an extra charge!!!!!!!!!
Room and sea view was excellent. Both the breakfast outside seating and to a lesser extend the roof top restaurant were extremely unhealthy. the breakfast outside area has many dozens of pigeons everywhere, tables, sunbrellas and outer walls were full of pigeons.
Staff I asked for a non smoking room.Our room smelt very bad of smoking.My wife is allergic to smoke.
Nice staff, clean and quite. Hmmm, a bit far from city, but bus is available!pillows could have been better
Overall nice hotel, very good facilities and friendly staff The colours of the furniture in my room at 3rd floor was not very pleasant, the floor of the bathroom was with noizy tiles and the air conditioned had no functioned properly
The swimming pool. Friendliness of the staff. The room was very comfortable. Prices for sunbed and towels are too expensive even when using the hotel swimming pool.
Room facilities was excellent, the pool area was lovely and the room service was very good. Two out of three concierge staff weren't particularly friendly, while one of them was excellent.
Very nice stay.The view was beautiful.The personnel was courteous.Good food at Bleu Citron.
5 minutes drive to Monaco
Friendly staff, comfortable bed, good aircon and facing the beach. Nothing.
Large room.Staff were quite friendly. The bathroom and toilet of the room we stayed in have not been renovated for atleast twenty years,the bottom of the steel door frames were rusting and the tiles were cracked/broken of the wall.The shower head was only 1m of the base of the bath (I measured it)and yes there was no shoower curtain/screen.We requested a non smoking room and recieved a room with ash trays beside the bed (two singles pushed together to form a double).the nearest train station to Monte Carlo is about a 15 minute walk,not the two hundred metres as quoted on web page.We also requested a room with a sea view but were given a room which had its sea view blocked by trees when we were some of the few guests at the hotel and the majority of the rooms were empty.
-----------nothing to like..........I DO NOT RECOMMEND BEAU RIVAGE... My experience in this hotel:
This hotel was excellent as we took a disabled lady and nothing was too much trobule well done to the staff.Joyce Knight
Location, and the room layout My room was super noisy as it didn't have curtains. Couldn't sleep all night due to people partying outside. Came back to see my card being charged again for the stay even though I have already prepaid. Am disputing this with my credit card company right now.
Modern hotel in a great location for Nice city centre and the beach For the standard and price there were a few minor flaws such as plaster falling off room ceiling, and shower being extremely user unfriendly.
The staff was friendly and helpful. I really liked the beach-rock themed remodel, especially the beach rocks encased in the floor of the bathroom. (I've been going to the Beau Rivage periodically for 20 years.) The hotel beach is quite nice, and lunch there is really good. The location is perfect, and Le Comptoir Bar next door is great for after dinner drinks and people watching. Not really. On my last night (the night before an early flight) they put me in a room overlooking a tiny urban courtyard (not too picturesque, like somewhere in New York), but we got there late and we had to leave before the sun rose, so it didn't really matter. It wouldn't have been a great room if I was there for a week of beach-going. Also, they took only nonrefundable cash for a spot at the beach, and there was a sea pollution warning that afternoon, and it started raining on us at the beach, so that didn't work out too well.
Location The terrible service. No room service in the night. Every time you ask reception for something - the answer we don't have it. They dont't have umbrellas during the rain, they don't have iron, they don't have food in the night. In the 4* stars hotel :(
Check in delay and room quality
This hotel located in the center of the city, next to sea, shopping, a lot of restaurants. Our room was really small. There was the dust everywhere.
I liked that it has own beach, is located close to most things tourist needs Its very noisy (cant really complain about that cause its good location isn't quiet), having problems with hot water, could have few more hangers
Everything was beyond excellence, the hotel, the position, the welcome - everything The staff at the beach club were quite good but one in particular was quite surly.
Great location - Staff not always very helpful. One staff member in particular had a very poor command of English and was unable to give simple directions or answer basic questions.
There is a great breakfast and the lobby is beautiful. It is right across the street from the beach.
Great location - you can take the bus into Monaco for only one euro per person!
It was very nice hotel, with perfect view on sea side, very kind staff! We are liked it very very much! Especialy its a first hotel who present for us champagne that we was in honeymoon. Its was great!
Hotel gave us an upgrade to a seaview room even though we had only booked a mountain view room. Views from the balcony were fabulous and the room was very chic. Parking is available right outside the hotel and on leaving when I found that my car battery was flat the receptionist took me to the garage next door and kindly arranged for him to jump-start my car immediately. Quite a long distance to walk to the centre of Monte Carlo, although there is a bus service apparently.
A nice hotel with friendly, helpful staff. The rooms were very clean and we liked the extra little touchs like the petals on the bed. I wouldnt pick a mountain view room if I was looking to spend more time in the hotel but as we were visiting friends and were out all day it wasnt a problem that we didnt have a nice view.
Great little hotel walking distance to Monaco at a reasonable price the rooms are small but nice, the staff excellent
Hot dishes on breakfast
Excellent sea view to an excellent, quiet beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Very good connections even with public transportation. Train station within approximately 500 meters by road, but buses go right in front of the hotel between Menton and Nice. All journeys are only 1 euro per person, even all the way to Nice..
Hotel located next to small beach ( 220 steps !!!). Our first and last time in 2 star hotel. No restaurants nor evening atractions near the hotel. Good bus connection to Monaco - last bus 23.15. Taxi from Monaco around 20 e one way. Friendly stuff. Rooms has been described as "garden view". One small window with "view at neighbour wall" would fit better. Breakfast = toast + jam and nutella.
Excellent - very well situated and a nice view on the sea - breakfast more than enough,for the small price you pay. For a first visit on the Riviera it is highly recommended and situated in a quiet place at 5' far from Monacco and 15' from San Remo (Italy).
