The comfortable and cheerful Radisson Blu Hotel is calling your name. All the way up on its rooftop, a sun terrace features cozy bar lounges and lovely panoramic views over the sparkling bay.
Year-round, so does the Promenade de Anglais. Palm trees, boutiques and cafés line this thoroughfare, where the hotel is located – take a long afternoon stroll here, while soaking up the sun and admiring the sea views.
And so, too, does Nice Old Town, where cultural and artistic landmarks are as plentiful as the cobbled streets. Visit the Musée Matisse, featuring one of the world’s largest collections of the artist’s works. Or delight your senses with a stroll into Cours Saleya Flower Market, where blooms overflow, in every shade.

How to Get There
I read all the reviews about this hotel before I arrived both good and bad and really didn't know what to expect. I have to say that my overall 8 days was fantastic at this hotel. Sure things weren't perfect and any time something happened the wonderful staff made up for it in some nice way. My room was not ready checking in late so they upgraded me to ocean front room that was ready, this made my day. Free drinks at the pool if something was late or not perfect all with a smile. I had lunch with my family at the pool on several occasions, one because I wanted to give them a play for being so nice to me and it was convenient. The pool was great everyday, all the time chairs were available first week of July high season. The concierge was helpful, I can't say enough about the staff.
Yes the hotel is not near the center of town and 2 nights I didn't feel like going into the center of town so I went to a very nice restaurant 3 blocks away called Mesclun, was very good. Other nights I ubered into town and there are thousands of different restaurants to choose from. Even for lunch a few times around the corner on California ave there are a few places to do lunch all good and cheap.
When I return to Nice I certainly would consider this hotel again for my stay, I was very satisfied.
Does what a 4 star hotel is supposed to do with the basic hard services. Room was really quite small/basic, and we took the family room. Didn't eat there, except poolside and that was not bad. Breakfast area was nice and the food was pretty good. It would have been nice to have an egg/omelette station as well. Rooftop pool has a great view.
The location of the hotel is pretty far from the central area where there are a lot of restaurant / cafes, and the taxis are pretty expensive going up and down (€18 - €20 one way). The hotel has a private beach area that you can book at a discounted rate, but please buy or bring swimming shoes as it is a pebble beach.
So if you are looking to stay somewhere quiet away from the noise and the crowded beaches then this is for you.
The head concierge at Raddisson Blu in Nice put a dampener on our stay.
It's a very nice hotel, pardon the pun, but is poorly positioned being about 3km from town and 4km from the best part of Nice, the old town area called Vieux Ville.
On the several occasions we needed to consult the concierge for advice on getting to a site or even just asking for a map, he was rude and unhelpful, even throwing a map across the desk. We'd been courteous and polite on every occasion.
Don't stay here if you want to be close to town. It's right across the main road from the pebbly beach, which is owned by the hotel, but you have to pay 5 euros for a towel and lots more for a sunbed.
For the price, better to stay somewhere closer.
Most of the staff were nice enough, some even helpful, but the concierge was a shocker.
This is a good operation with ok rooms and good breakfast service. The services of the concierge and valets ate first class.
The main problem is that it' s a little too far from the old town center (reportedly 3 km though this may be understated). Taxis are in short supply and you end up paying an extortionate 25 euro for a one way trip. The new tram service should help though it was not mentioned by concierge.
Pool facilities good.
This is located in a great spot across from the water and near the airport with quick access to the city centre. Customer service is great and the rooftop pool and bar has amazing views across the bay.
