Great location and view

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 11, 2010

In the center of Nice. Short walk to the port, old nice and the beach. Fantastic view of the Mediterranean. Very clean and comfortable rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Climb to the top of the Chateau and enjoy the great views. Go to the cemetary on the way down to old Nice.

Terrific hotel by the bay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 20, 2007

When I first saw the website for the Hotel Suisse, I knew we had to stay there. Then I started to wonder if what they were promoting could possibly be true. I couldn't find many current reviews of the hotel, but we figured we would take a chance anyway. When we arrived at the hotel, the location was as promised - right on the Promenade des Anglais at the far end of the bay. After checking in, we went to our room and opened the door - and fell in love with the place.

Looking from the doorway of our room, we could look straight out of the terrace windows and see the sea and beach. Wow! The room was actually spacious compared to other European hotels we have seen. The furnishings were nice, the room bright, the bathroom clean with a tub and shower attachment. Oh, and the terrace, we had a terrace with a table and three chairs that we could sit out on and watch the sea each evening and morning.

The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the location was awesome, breakfast was substantial (and delicious) and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

Would I recommend the hotel to others? You better believe it. We can't wait to go back and enjoy it ourselves.

Unique Quality: The most outstanding quality of the hotel was its location and views of the bay. The beach was located right across the street as was the promenade.

Directions: Located on the far end of the Promenade des Anglais, right below the castel.

What a View!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

At the very Eastern tip of the Promenade, set into a cliff as the road curves around a bend, at the base of an old castle, is the hotel we stayed at: Hotel Suisse (http://www.hotels-ocre-azur.com/index.php?lang=english). We loved this hotel! We had requested a room with a view, and wound up with what had to be the best room in the hotel. We were on the 5th floor (out of 5), and had a large balcony, which provided an absolutely breathtaking view of the curving coastline and Old Nice. The staff was very friendly, and as long as we knew a few key phrases in French, and were polite, with a lot of “s’il vous plaît,” and “merci,” we got along just fine. Most people responded to us in English anyway (probably due to our tell-tale American pronunciation of their language), but we think our attempt to speak the language was appreciated. The breakfast was not included here, and we only had it once out of our 3 days in Nice. At 15€, it was a little pricey, and we found the cafes in Old Nice offered a “petite dejeuner” for about half the price.

Great view of the Mediterranean

We stayed here 3 nights and absolutely loved it. It's across the street from the beach, and a 5 minute walk to Cours Saleya and the Old Town. Our room had a spectacular view of the Mediterranean, and a tiny balcony from which to enjoy it. The bedroom was plain, but spacious. The bathroom was done up in red tile and looked newly renovated.

Unique Quality: Gorgeous view of the sea
Great location

Unique setting overlooking the Baie des Anges

by written on March 26, 2004

Unique Quality: For view and location you will find it hard to beat Hotel Suisse. Built onto the rock face beneath to ascent to the Chateau, adjoining the Tour Bellanda where the composer Berlioz once lived, people in nearby apartments have paid millions to enjoy that view.

Low season no sea view 55 e, Seaview 95 - 130 e according to height

Commanding a unique view of the sweep of the Bay des Ange, it is minutes away from the Cours Saleya and the Ponchettes., and the run to the Port around the corner

At three stars, prices are not unreasonable and by reputation the service is good. But you can get good service anywhere - you can't get that view just anywhere!

To find anywhere in Nice for which you have a street name and number, for a street-level view of the building and location map, go here: Nice - Voila!

Directions: Foot of the Colline du Chateau, below the Tour Bellanda
