    • To know

    • The Hotel Ellington resides at 25 Boulevard Dubouchage, in other words, right in the city centre of Nice.
      The seafront, the Promenade des Anglais and the old town are all less than a mile from the hotel on foot. In terms of shops, restaurants and bars, you'll be spoilt for choice; the city's shopping streets are just a stone's throw from the hotel.
      Despite its city centre location, the Hotel Ellington is situated in a relatively residential area, and so is spared from the noise of the nightlife and the commercial thoroughfares.
      The Nice Ville SNCF train station is about a mile from the hotel (between a 10 and 15 minute walk). Visitors can take the number 23 or 52 bus from the airport to the 'Gare SNCF' bus stop, then take the tramway in the 'Pont Michel' direction and get off at the 'Jacques Médecin' stop, just 400m from the hotel.

    • The Hotel Ellington has 100 guest rooms divided into several categories: Classic, Deluxe, Executive and Junior Suite.
      On the decoration front, the rooms have three different ambiances: wrought iron and the warm colours of the south; wenge wood and bright tones for a modern aspect; and a Louis XVI style for a bit of French classicism.
      The result is on a par with the decor in the common areas. These modern-style rooms are very classy. The Classic guest rooms have one of two decors: either wrought iron furniture with colours of the south, or the soft and warm colours of the Sahara. Without being huge, they are a relatively comfortable size and are equipped with air-conditioning, a safe, a flat-screen television, Wi-Fi Internet access, a minibar and tea and coffee-making facilities.
      The Deluxe rooms are more spacious than the Classic rooms, with the added bonus of bathrobes and a complimentary bottle of water provided. There is a designer ambiance in these rooms, where the wenge wood and red silk curtains create the most beautiful effect.
      The biggest rooms in the hotel are the Executive guest rooms. These rooms have one of two ambiances: French with Louis XVI style furniture, or refined with contemporary furniture. Moreover, they also have a Nespresso coffee machine and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
      The Junior Suites have a lounge area in addition to the bedroom, although the amenities are the same as in the Executive rooms.
      The bedrooms overlook either rue Dubouchage or the patio.
      The bathrooms are designed in a modern style with dark grey and off-white tiling. All except two are equipped with a bathtub and a hair-dryer. The toilets are not separate.

    • The Hotel Ellington is located in an authentic Nice house dating from 1920. The elegant pink façade of this bourgeois house might give you the impression that the door leads to a bijou apartment-style universe...but no! Behind the colourful façade lies a resolutely jazz, chic and elegant ambiance. You just need to enter the lobby to understand that not only is the hotel named after the famous jazz pianist Duke Ellington, but it also harbours the soul of jazz music.
      The moulded ceilings, designer furniture, parquet floors, the various shades of grey and the hushed atmosphere of the lobby all undeniably echo the sophistication of the artist's music, and who you can just picture walking by in his suit and tie. Off to one side is the Duke Bar & Lounge, another room that recreates the spirit of the 50s and 60s. The wooden bar and parquet floor, the leather armchairs, the piano and the subdued lighting all give it a swing feel reminiscent of a New York jazz club. Once past the bar, guests find themselves in an equally pleasant but more cosy room. Leather armchairs are featured here too, as well as a modern black marble fireplace that helps to create a relaxing atmosphere filled with the soothing sounds of jazz music.
      This lounge separates the lobby and the bar from the breakfast room. You just need to pull the curtain across the doorway to the latter to transform the lounge into an intimate sitting room.
      The breakfast room is bathed in natural light that streams in through the large bay windows. With its dark wood furniture, its parquet floor and its moulded ceiling, it is both elegant and welcoming.
      As you pass through the glass doors surrounding the bar, you can see that the hotel opens out onto a peaceful patio bathed in light. Furnished with comfortable wrought iron chairs and armchairs, it's the perfect spot to forget the surrounding city while relaxing with a drink.
      Back in the lobby and waiting for one of the two lifts, guests can linger over the beautiful black and white snapshots of great jazz figures that decorate the long, enchanting narrow corridors leading to the guest rooms.

    • The Hotel Ellington does not provide catering services other than breakfast and the dishes available from room service.
      Guests can order toast, grilled sandwiches, club sandwiches, pasta, chicken tagine and desserts from room service between 7:00am and midnight.
      Breakfast consists of a hot and cold buffet (scrambled eggs, bacon or sausages, potatoes, fresh tomato salad, fresh cucumber salad, fruit salad, sliced fresh fruit, whole fruit, fromage frais, sliced cheese, ham, yogurt, croissants, breakfast pastries, bread rolls, pastries, mini pancakes, cereals, etc.). The breakfast pastries and cakes are made on site. Breakfast can also be served in your room or on the terrace, which can seat 70 people. The continental breakfast served in guests' rooms includes a croissant, 2 bread rolls, small pastries or pains au chocolat, a portion of Cantal cheese, a portion of Camembert cheese, a yogurt, 2 portions of butter, 2 jams, 2 Nutella, honey, coffee, tea or hot chocolate, a glass of orange juice, a pot of milk, cereal and a fruit salad.

    • Guests at the Hotel Ellington can benefit from the hotel's partnership with the private Opera Beach, just a few minutes walk from the hotel on the Promenade des Anglais. Beach towels and a bottle of mineral water are provided for guests.

    • The hotel does not have any facilities for guests with reduced mobility.
      Jazz concerts are put on once a week in the hotel's Duke Bar & Lounge, as well as themed evenings (usually based on a brand of alcohol) and Argentinian tango classes.
      Animals are accepted at an extra charge of around £8.50.
      Room service is available from 7:00am to midnight every day.

      This family-run hotel located in the centre of Nice resembles an urban hotel. Housed in a deceptive Renaissance-style beautiful old building, it is best suited for couples.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
