Don't be put off by the façade or the small entrance at the Hotel La Prérouse, as they hide a charming little gem. This typical Niçois building with its yellow façade and wrought iron balconies is all height, with a very discreet entrance that doesn't reveal anything of the hotel that lies beyond.
It's clear from the moment you enter the doors that you are in the lobby of a hotel and not in a house as you may have almost expected. The first level of the lobby holds a pleasant lounge area, with armchairs, a sofa and a coffee table, overlooking the street and the sea. Featuring shades of grey, white and beige, and wrought iron and high-quality contemporary furniture, guests can immediately see the care taken in the decor and its elegance.
After climbing the few steps that separate this lower level from the upper level, guests arrive at the solid wood reception desk. Here, the whole reception area is bathed in natural light thanks to the large window in the lounge.
After reception, it's the restaurant! The indoor part of the dining room at the Hotel La Pérouse is decorated in the same understated and refined style as the reception and the rest of the communal areas. With beige walls and floors, chocolate-coloured furniture, and a fireplace with a small lounge space in front of it, the room is ideal for intimate dinners in a hushed ambiance. The indoor dining room opens out onto a veranda furnished with several tables, followed by a beautiful outdoor terrace that resembles a small village square in the south of France. Perched on the tree-lined hillside, the terrace looks out across the horizon of the sea. If you climb a few more steps, you'll find another smaller terrace with a swimming pool tucked away between the rocks, the vegetation, and the sea.
That's not all - even higher up the hillside a privileged few can have a panoramic view of the city, the Promenade des Anglais and the sea. The hotel's last terrace is a haven of peace surrounded by rocks, pine trees and vegetation. 6 floors pressed into the hillside separate the ground floor and this terrace, accessible via a lift, or a staircase if you are feeling brave.
Here you will find a small gym equipped with 3 machines, a whirlpool bath that is never colder than 30° regardless of the season, and a large window overlooking the Mediterranean. Whether you want to relax on one of the deckchairs, unwind in the whirlpool bath, or enjoy a romantic drink or a drink with friends under the pergolas, this spot is absolutely magical and enchanting. Perched on the hillside several hundred metres above sea level, this terrace creates a real feeling of exclusivity, like you're alone in the world, far far away from the sounds of the city.
To top off these moments of happiness, the Hotel La Pérouse also has a sauna.
The hotel also has meeting spaces that can accommodate 10 to 45 people. For meeting or seminars, the 60m² Belanda room can seat up to 45 people, the 35m² Baie des Anges room can seat up to 45 people, and the 30m² outdoor space, La Gardiola, can accommodate up to 15 people. Note that all of these spaces have a theatre layout. For cocktails, the Le Patio restaurant can accommodate up to 50 people (45 for a buffet).
