Overview

The Review

Stepping into the fabulous Art Deco lobby at Le Palais de la Mediterranee, you immediately get the distinct feeling that hot Parisian designer Sybille de Margerie (who was behind the Hotel de Crillon in Paris and La Palme d’Or in Cannes) got it right in Nice, too.

The decor embodies a sleek modernity that’s unmistakably Art Deco, but instead of the black and silver glam version, there’s a warm insouciance, a bit of humor and comfort to spare. Deco by way of Biedermeier, the woods are warm, the lines are sleek, and the trim is polished brass, but the colors are warm crimson, sunny yellow and that iconic blue of sunny Provence.

Most guestrooms have large balconies with views of the Baie des Anges, the hills or a lovely interior garden. Best of all, the newly redone bathrooms are spacious, with separate tubs and showers. Plus, there are ample dressing areas to prepare for a big night out, and big, comfy beds to tumble into at the end of it.

At lunchtime the “3D” menu is a hit and a bargain (approximately $35 for three courses). Adjacent is the sexy La Pingala lounge bar, which feels a bit Moroccan, with deep couches in spice colors. It offers cocktail concoctions served in miniature Deco-style shakers, with live piano music tinkling in the background.

Head to the third floor for a dip in the heated indoor-outdoor swimming pool. You can lounge inside, but when the weather’s warm snag a seat on the terrace, where you’ll feel blissfully removed from the action on the boulevard below. Aside from modern indulgences, the real treat here is the distinct look back in time, to the glamorous era when the hotel first thrived. Sure, the facade is the only relic of the 1929 design, but from a table in the candy-striped Art Deco casino, you’ll feel as though you’re at a midcentury Riviera party.

Beautiful, convenient, comfortable hotel
Reviewed 3 days ago

This was a very centrally located hotel in Nice, making it very easy to walk most places in town. Very accommodating staff and extremely comfortable beds! Restaurant was quite good, if pricey. Bed linens were very comfortable. Ac didn't get as cold as I would have liked.

Excellent stay

We travelled recently to this hotel and our stay was excellent.
From the check in to check out, service all around was outstanding.
Would def recommend to stay here and will be back to this property whenever we visit Nice next.

Good value

Great location to begin with. Consistent Hyatt service level.
Breakfast buffet not to be missed.
Be careful picking rooms though,some of the sea facing rooms have no view at all due to the old building facade in front, blocking the view.

Needs more effort!

I have stayed in this hotel several times and I love it. However, the rooms need to be cleaned better, my socks were still on the floor when I got back and some uneaten crumbs of a croissant were still on the table.... The towels, bathrobes and other things might need a revamp soon. It is the best option in Nice, however, it should aim to be better every day.

Most amazing hotel experience

From the moment we stepped into the hotel everything exceeded our high expectations. All the staff made us feel welcome and special and went above and beyond to ensure a perfect staff. All staff; reception, concierge, dining, housekeeping... all went out of their way to ensure maximum comfort and pleasure. This combined with the beauty, cleanliness and amazing views made this our best vacation ever (and we have been on many).
