Nice hotel in Nice Nov 17, 2009
Radisson Blu Hotel Nice is a comfortable hotel with 331 rooms right at the Promenade Des Anglais. The beach is on the other side of the street and a short bus ride takes you to the Old Town of Nice. The airport bus stops right across the street and cost €4.
I got a room with city view, which was fine since there is a lot more traffic on the sea view side. The rooms all have wireless internet access free of charge, cable TV, mini bar, safe and trouser press. The sea view rooms also have tea/coffee making facilities. The rooms come in three different styles. I don´t know which style I got, but I found it a bit dark.
The roof top terrace has a spectacular view of Nice and the Baie des Anges. On the terrace is the "Le Pool" Bar & Lounge, which serves drinks, snacks and light meals. The bar is open 10 am - midnight. There is also the Terrace Restaurant which is open for dinner from 7 pm - 10:30 pm. In the lobby there is the Lobby Bar (10 am - 7 pm) and the Bleu Citron Restaurant (7 am - 10:30 pm).
The downside is the price. A double room with city view cost €180 and with sea view €215 including breakfast buffet. What really surprised me was that you have to pay extra for the use of the sun beds, umbrellas and showers by the roof top pool. €18 for the hole day and €15 for the afternoon. The pool is open 9 am - 7 pm. A 4 star hotel should not charge extra for this!
The use of the sun beds at the private beach "La Régence" across the street is free of charge. The beach is open 9 am - 6 pm.
You also have to pay extra for the use of the fitness centre. For €12 a day you get access to a hammam, sauna, cardio training and solarium. The centre is open 6 am - 10 pm. I was not able to take a look at this since you only get access after you have paid at the reception.
I found all the reception staff, the concierge and the restaurant staff very friendly and helpful. This hotel can easily score higher if they include more of the facilities in the room rate.
