    Location 8.22 /10

    The Best Western Riviera is situated almost directly opposite the 'Nice Ville' SNCF train station; it is less than a two-minute walk.
    The seafront and the Promenade des Anglais are both under a mile away, with Vieux Nice (the old town) about a mile away. Shuttle bus 99 runs between the airport, 4 miles away, and the Nice train station.
    There are several shops, bars and restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel, but the more lively city centre is about 600m away on foot towards the seafront.

    Accommodation 5.95 /10

    The Best Western Riviera has 48 guest rooms divided into single rooms facing the courtyard, double/twin rooms facing the courtyard or the city, and triple rooms.
    They are all decorated in the same contemporary and relatively classic style. The colour scheme with off-white walls, chocolate linen bedspreads, chestnut curtains, white varnished bed heads and bedside tables, hints of chocolate on the desktop and the pouf, and light wood desk, wardrobe and chair gives the rooms a touch of sobriety and elegance.
    The single rooms facing the courtyard have a small balcony; the double/twin rooms facing the courtyard or the city have a double bed or two twin beds, while their bathrooms are fitted with either a bathtub or a shower; and the triple rooms (one per floor) are the ultimate family rooms with their 3 individual beds, their office area, and their bathroom with a bathtub.
    Regardless of the category, they are all equipped with a 36-inch LCD television with international channels and DTTV, unlimited free Wi-Fi, a direct telephone line, an office area, a refrigerator, a small balcony, and tea and coffee-making facilities.
    The bathrooms are very pleasant with their natural-style cream-coloured tiles and imitation marble vanity top. Although they are not huge, they are very functional and include a hair-dryer.

    Overview 5.95 /10

    The building's beautiful Haussmannian-style façade opens onto avenue Thiers where the Best Western Riviera cuts a fine figure. Unfortunately, once inside the hotel, the charm is somewhat lost. Although the lobby is well kept and has been refurbished in a sober contemporary style with a white tiled floor, grey and pale yellow walls, a modern reception desk in the same shades, and a large leather club-style sofa, there is a sense of coldness to the space.
    Of course, that's only an impression, as the whole area is well maintained, welcoming, bright, and modern. Various plants and bamboos matched with various paintings complete the decor in this area, where everything is designed to be as pleasing as possible.
    The breakfast room on the same level, i.e. the ground floor, mirrors the decor of the lobby: sober and modern. This pretty room can seat around fifty people and is bathed in light thanks to the large bay windows that overlook the avenue. In shades of grey, brown and beige, with designer black leather chairs, the breakfast room is a lovely place to leisurely eat your first meal of the day, which is not the case in many hotels whether they are part of a chain or not.
    The hotel also has a conference room, which can accommodate up to 25 people, with natural light, air-conditioning, soundproofing and Wi-Fi access.
    Between the lobby and the breakfast room you will find a vending machine, as well as a business corner with a computer and Internet access for guests to use.
    There is either a lift or stairs, with an electric blue carpet, to take you up to the upper floors and the guest rooms. Unfortunately, the same blue carpet also continues in the corridors where it clashes with the pink-grey walls and the varnished white coffee tables with their flowers.

    Food and drink

    The Best Western Riviera only serves breakfast, which comes in the form of a cold sweet and savoury buffet. Breakfast can also be served in the guest rooms for an extra charge.

    To know

    The Best Western Riviera does not have any guest rooms adapted for people with reduced mobility.
    Guests receive a free drink on arrival, while breakfast and a lunch box (with a sandwich and a drink) are included in the room price.
    Animals are accepted for an extra charge of 8 euros (£7).

      The Mercure Notre-Dame presents itself as a town hotel in a sea resort village. As it is not on the sea front, it makes the most of its other features to set itself apart from the competition. One such example is the 360-degree terrace on the top floor that overlooks the red roofs of Old Nice, and provides glimpses of the blue sea. It is probably better suited to couples than families.

      While both the interior and exterior architecture of the B4 Park promises a hotel full of charm and character, the decoration, or rather lack thereof in these vast spaces, merely leaves a slightly depressing feeling of emptiness.

      Ideally situated at the heart of the city, the B4 Hotel Plaza's Belle Epoque architecture is truly remarkable. The communal areas, on the other hand, have a rather cold appearance, although the lovely rooftop terrace quickly warms the atmosphere back up.

      The Negresco is the emblematic palace of the French Riviera. A veritable museum and showcase covering 5 centuries of French history and art, this hotel offers an extraordinary atmosphere thanks to both the wealth of its rooms and their diversity. The decor in the brasserie, 'La Rotonde', alone is a perfect example of the beautiful creative folly that makes this hotel so magical.

      Since the Roaring Twenties, the Palais de la Méditerranée has been a major star of the French Riviera, first as a casino and today as a 5-star hotel. Its reputation is well-deserved, but far from being flashy like you would imagine it to be, the Palais de la Méditerranée is elegantly luxurious, warm and classy. It is a grand hotel.
