Nice by name and Nice by nature (sorry, we couldn’t resist!), this glamorous city on the French Riviera has long since drawn visitors with an eye for style. It was once the home of Henri Matisse, and you’ll soon see why this city captured the artist’s imagination. Discover this gem of the Côte d’Azur from the comforts of Splendid Hotel & Spa – a contemporary retreat that’s set in the center of the city, just a five-minute walk from Promenade des Anglais and the iconic beach.
After a day exploring the city’s beaches, boutiques and cafés, you won’t have any trouble unwinding at the hotel. Start with a visit to the spa, where you can enjoy a session in the hammam, a dip in the hot tub or a soothing treatment. Meanwhile, the rooftop pool is another inviting spot, offering impressive views over the city. And if all that lounging gets your appetite going, just stop by the hotel’s restaurant, where you’ll enjoy exquisite dishes highlighting fresh, local ingredients and, of course, more breathtaking views.
Harmony rooms are spacious and modern, with floor-to-ceiling windows and your choice of a queen-sized bed or two twins. For a bit more space, upgrade to a Deluxe room, offering more square footage and a furnished balcony or terrace.
L’EssenCiel Bar-Restaurant is located on the hotel’s eight floor, affording it brilliant views over the city. A buffet breakfast is served here each day, as well as lunch and dinner, with a menu that incorporates fresh, seasonal produce from the region. You’ll also find a bar on the eighth floor, offering a range of drinks and a tapas menu of light bites.
The hotel’s spa features two treatment rooms, a hammam, an indoor hot tub, a relaxation room and a fitness corner complete with a bike, a treadmill and a water grinder. Rejuvenating treatments are available, as well as manicures, pedicures and hair removal. There’s also a small shop featuring Decleor and Phytomer products.
The hotel is located in the heart of Nice, just a five-minute walk from the Promenade des Anglais and the beach. Both the Matisse Museum and Nice Côte d’Azur airport are just a 15-minute drive away, and the city’s casinos can be reached in around 10 minutes on foot. Further activities include ascending Castle Hill to admire the lovely views, exploring the historic streets of the Old Town or touring the surrounding vineyards by bicycle.
How to Get There
We had an excellent stay here at the Splendid Hotel. We stayed in a deluxe room with a jacuzzi bath tub, which was amazing. The location of the hotel couldn’t be more convenient. Short walk to Old Nice and less than a 2 minute walk to the beach. The staff are amazing and very helpful. I will return to Nice in April of next and will definitely stay here! Thank you.
nice bedroom,comfortable. close to the Promenade des anglais.restaurants near by.very helpful staff.breakfast room on the top floor is really unique with a view on the city.Good hotel for a city break.
We were very impressed with this hotel. All staff were extremely helpful from the start of our holiday to the end and made our stay very special.
The hotel is in a good location to explore the beach, shops, the old town and the nearby public transport made visiting Nice and surrounding areas easy.
The room was a good size and had a balcony looking over boulevard victor hugo.
The roof area was amazing with fantastic views over Nice.
The breakfast choice was good and breakfast staff cheerful, polite and helpful.
The bar was a nice place to relax with a cocktail and the barman was very friendly.
We would recommend this hotel and will return again
Great location, short walking distance to everywhere around the city.
But we found the morning staffs are not as friendly and helpful as the evening staffs. The room is good but quite disappointed that the housekeeping didn’t keep the room clean everyday, for example they vacuumed only once during our four-days stay. Therefore we doubted about the cleanliness of the room as they didn’t vacuum it everyday and it’s a carpet floor. We booked a suite with jacuzzi bath, it sounds fancy but it wasn’t something special and it turned on by itself sometimes, especially it was kind of scary when it happened in the middle of the night. Overall was not bad, but definitely over-priced.
This review is for room 612 a deluxe room.This hotel is comfortable, clean and well run. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again, but if you’re looking to be in the middle of the shops and cafés you may find this to be a bit too far from the action for your liking. It’s about 5 blocks walk to the main drag. There is a restaurant across the street but it did not appear to be very popular when we were there. There is a laundromat, patisserie, mini market and pharmacy around the corner.
The front desk staff is polite, especially Juliana, who goes out of her way to be friendly and helpful. The rooms are incredibly quiet because the walls inside the rooms and in the hallways are padded and absorb all the sound.
The beds and bedding are quite comfortable, a variety of pillows are provided. Bath linens are large and plush. Large bottles of soap/shampoo and moisturizer are provided. The bathroom is spacious, there is a hair dryer, and a lot of storage both in the medicine cabinet and in the cabinet below the sink. There is also a heated towel rack.
The on-site breakfast is very nice and at €10 for booking directly a good value. They are a variety of breads,cereals, salads, meat and eggs. You can ask to have your eggs cooked sunny side up at no additional charge - a bonus for Americans. It is served in a rooftop dining room with a beautiful view of the city. We stopped in the bar one evening for a charcuterie platter and it was huge and quite filling.
A lovely property if you wish to be a bit away from it all.
