by tango259

Will be in Nice in July.
Comfort, cleanliness and convenience are important.
I've researched this hotel and seems reasonable.
Any other relevant info would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Someone else asked about this hotel so I took a look when I last went by - super, and the location just around the corner of Nice Etoile couldn't be better- handy for everything. I don't think you will be disappointed. Looks very stylish.

Cheers

Two suggestions until you get an answer here:

(1) Type the hotel name into the VT Search Window above and then scroll the next window down to Keyword Search and click GO! This will get any reviews VT members have written on their Travel Pages.

(2) Do a search on Trip Advisor at http://www.tripadvisor.com/ They have lots of hotel reviews and it may help you.

For general information on Nice, type Nice into your VT Search Window. The next window is set to Destinations by default so simply click GO! and this will bring you to the VT Member Travel Pages about Nice. Tips are on the left of your screen and arranged by category. Top 5 Member Pages are on the right of your screen and are all well worth checking.

You can also click on the names of anyone who answers you here and this will bring you to their Home Page where you can find Nice amongst their Travel Pages, click on that and get more information and photos. It's lots of fun.

Enjoy your trip.

Travel Tips for Nice

I hardly know where to begin

by b1bob

There were a lot of things that made Nice a nice place to study during the summer. The weather was good and hot, but there was always a constant breeze to moderate the heat. The folks in Nice were real friendly and patient to Americans who were willing to try to speak French. Most of all, I liked the view from the window of my dorm of the Mediterranean. Despite cautions by some that France would be unfriendly to all Americans, I never really had a problem. I also made lasting friendships at the Faculté des Lettres.

Christmas + New Year in Nice

by Nice2004

At Christmas time Place Massena in central Nice is turned into a Christmas Market with, stalls, snowy Christmas trees and an ice skating rink. The stalls sell the usual European Christmas market fayre, such as local produce, Chrsitmas decorations, sweets etc. There was also a giant Big Wheel.

Go inline on the promenade

by goglobe

It's so common to go inline skating in French cities and towns, and here in Nice in particular, in the long stretch of the Nice promenade, some 7 km of level runs.
The promenade actually has a bike path and occasionally motor bikes run along and park themselves near the beach. Inline skaters have a free flow amid the pedestrians as the place is not densed with people all the time.
Wear a pair of sunglasses and a sunshade. One weather tip to note: as wind is so strong from the west, going eastward is a lot smoother and faster. Just an ordinary pair of inlines and smart wear for outdoor sports. No need for protective gear if you are not into extreme running.

Marineland for children

by Nice2004

A nice place for children to visit, take the train to Biot from Nice and walk. Our son who was 4 at the time really enjoyed this place. Marineland is full of dolphins, killer whales, seals etc. At le Petite Ferme du Far West you can have pony rides etc. There’s also mini golf, water park and birds section. You can pay for each part separately, although when looking to go this year it was really expensive to visit each attraction! Park opens from 10am. Check their website as closing times varies through the year, as do prices.

Find your inner Lauren Bacall...

by allaboutnice about Saint James

...and join the yacht set with this high quality wonderful clothing range from Saint James.

Saint James is a French clothing company that originally started in Normandy in the north of France and is home to the famous Breton fishermen's sweaters.

The Nice branch of Saint James is appropriately sited on Ile de la Beaute right by the Port of Nice. This small and lovely shop has a limited range of smart casual clothing. The colours and cut have a nautical slant - lots of whites and navy and plenty of stripes. The women's clothes extend from basic tops, shorts and trousers to knitted suits and linen dresses. The men's range is mostly cotton tops and gorgeous chunky wool sweaters - the husband looks particularly Cary Grant-ish in his. The collection reminds me a bit of the classic Ralph Lauren sport style but at less cost.

If you are near the Port, well worth a visit. The window displays are very good (like most French shops) and the prices are also displayed so you can suss things out before entering the shop if you're a bit shy. Closed Sundays and lunchtimes. This mid to high- priced clothing would appeal more to the mid-30s plus age group I should think.

However, at any age, if you want to buy a classic stripy French T-shirt you are in the right place - Saint James has a gorgeous lightweight striped cotton boat-neck T-shirt with three-quarter sleeves. These tops come in a range of colours, although for me, the original navy and white stripe is the best. These tops start at around 20 euros and are available for children as well as adults. My husband and daughter have a T-shirt each (see photo left) and as chief launderer in the family, I am happy to report that the tops wash and wear very well. Also, in my humble opinion, they are infinitely more tasteful and desirable as a T-shirt than the tacky 'I love Nice' touristy T-shirts for sale in the Old Town and Cours Saleya. They would make a great present for back home too - classic French - style, from France. The Saint James website (reference given below) is very informative and can give you a full description and photographs of all the clothes in the collection. You can order a catalogue too. The only draw-back - no prices are given but as a very rough guide, for ladies, individual items are priced approximately between 40 and 150 euros each and children's tops start at about 15 euros.
