It features a towering Art Deco marble façade that dates back to its original 1929 opening and 187 guestrooms and suites with the latest amenities, including flat screen TVs, high speed Internet access, and electric blinds.

The heart of the hotel is on the third floor, where guests will find Le 3e restaurant and bar; a sauna and a hammam are located on the 6th floor, and a large nearby casino with slot machines, roulette, and table games will entertain guests during their stay.

Pros: Location, staff and amenities
Cons: Beverages are quite expensive.
Location: Promenade, shopping, eating.
This is our 2nd visit and have to say yet again an amazing stay. Staff are friendly and checked us in early at 11.30am which was nice after such an early start. Room and amenities were excellent, very clean and all you need in a hotel. Location is a highlight right on the main promenade and near many shops and restaurants.

Pros: Location
Cons: Time for a remodel.
Location: Endless activities all within a short walking distance.
I've been to Nice a few times, love this area and this city. The hotel is ok. In desperate need of remodel however, the staff and location made up for the poor condition of this hotel. Staff interactions were excellent. Extremely helpful and fun to chat with.

Brilliant 5 star hotel on the seafront

5 out of 5
by from London
Posted Dec 29, 2016
Pros: Location, ambiance, staff, facilities, room...everything!
Cons: Warmer pool!
Location: Located on the Promenade des Anglais, the hotel is perfectly situated for sightseeing in Nice, the tourist information office is a short walk away.
My husband and I spent Christmas week at the Palais de la Mediterranee and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive to our every need. We were upgraded to a city view King room on arrival and there was a lovely fruit plate and note to welcome us. The room was spacious and comfortable with both bath and shower and separate toilet. We also had a terrace with a view of city and mountains, which might have had more use were it not a bit chilly. Toiletries were provided and the mini-bar was very well-stocked. The free wi-fi worked surprisingly well and an international adaptor was helpfully provided. We ordered a pizza from room service and asked for champagne glasses for our celebratory prosecco and they sent an ice bucket and all was beautifully presented. We enjoyed breakfast on Christmas morning, but it is very expensive for a fairly standard hotel breakfast buffet. The bar is lovely, and the restaurant as well, but there are many less expensive places to eat and drink in Nice that are also wonderful. The indoor pool is rather chilly in December, since it is connected to the outdoor pool. The hotel is well situated on the Promenade des Anglais and close to the Old Town. The tour train and hop-on-hop-off bus both stop nearby and the Messena Museum is a short walk. There are lots of great restaurants nearby and some wonderful beach cafés.

Pros: Perfect position to explore Nice. Staff were all very helpful and professional from the receptionist, concierge to the cleaning staff. The hotel is a good 5 star hotel and the swimming pool and steam room were well maintained.
Cons: We could not fault the room or the hotel or any of the staff we came into contact with
Location: Just cross the road to stroll along the beach towards the old part of Nice. The hotel is in easy reach of some excellent restaurants round the market
