The first time we were in Nice (1991) we stayed at a very nice hotel, a bit away from the action, called the Beach Regency. I don't know if it is still there.
Hotel Liserons de Mougins
It's a lovely small hotel with a large pool and ideally located for trips everywhere!
Don't miss the dinners there! The chief is cooking himself and you get what he prepares for his family!!!
If you're on a budget I'd really recommend that you don't attempt to find anywhere too close to the Promenade or Massena. If you stay a little further into town the prices drop and you get more for your money. Also, it only takes 10-15 minutes to stroll down to the beach.
When we first arrived in Nice, we stayed at the HOTEL LYONNAISE on Rue de Russie which is not far from rue Jean Medicin, the main shopping street.
They have a mixed bag of rooms, some with en suite toilets and showers and some without that share a bathroom on the corridor. If you book ahead you can take your pick, if not it's pot luck!
Although very basic and a bit frayed around the edges, it's clean and comfortable.
In summer 2001 the cost for a double en suite room was 300F per night.
Needing to find something a little more long term, we found by accident that the Hotel Notredame next door has a studio apartment separate from the hotel that was newly refurbished with a lovely shower room and kitchenette. That was also 300F per night and I'd strongly recommend it.
Having said all that, if you're booking ahead and planning on staying for more than a week, there are loads of holiday appartments on the web that work out much cheaper and better value for money. This is what we would have done if we had longer to plan our trip!
Résidence Eiffel in Beaulieu-sur-Mer
The Résidence Eiffel offers a millionaire's location on a middle class budget. The villa was owned by M. Eiffel, the engineer who built the tower that bears his name, and sits right on the Mediterranean in one of the poshest stretches of the Côte d'Azur.
Hotel Brise Marine in St. Jean-Cap-Ferrat
The photo shows the view from our balcony at the Hotel Brise Marine.
Villeneuve-Loubet Plage is dominated by a gigantic marina, constructed in the 1970th to a design of Andre Minangoy encircled by four unusual pyramids – ultramodern resort complex Marina Baie des Anges.
We spent a week here and have mixed feelings about this resort. Location is great, resort looks fantastic, but…You should be prepared to pay for everything (in addition to timeshare exchange costs); they charge for linen; for cleaning; security deposit around $500 etc. Our bedroom window faced busy noisy street with trains and cars running 24 by 7. There is no any kind of activities at resort (introduction meeting, organized excursions etc.). Staff is very slow to response to any kind of request.
We paid about $60 a nite for the two of us.
Rooms full of color and character, each one different. Good amount of street parking (free). Right in the heart of quaint Cap Ferrat. Walking distance to - well - any and everything on the Cap. A proper swimming beach is a 5 minutes stones throw.
The dormitory at the Faculté des Lettres was spartan but comfortable. I don't necessarily recommend it for the discerning traveler, but I've stayed in worse places than this.
It had a rather comfortable bed, a desk and a chair. Sorry, ladies, my friend Brad doesn't come with it. He's been spoken for since 1992 and remember the photo was taken in 1989.
On this trip we stayed at a villa called Le Mas des Oliviers, which is run by the Rhode School of Cuisine. There were just five rooms, which meant that the four staff in attendance pretty much waited on us hand and foot. I've never felt so decadent. This is a view of the villa taken from the pool deck, which overlooks the Mediterranean.
Of course not this one, its too expensive, try youth hostel; you could get thous information at railway station or any tourist information center.
This is the main attraction on Negresco Hotel.
Appartments 'OPEN' in Antibe les Pins

Cheap and clean. Everything you need is there. Good linnen service.
many cheap rooms in all the hotels near the railway station,but not so safe at night;picture is :the end of 'promenade des anglais';at the back,you have 2 hotels,hôtel suisse,hôtel La Pérouse;in the second one,my wife used to work at the reception
If you're very, very rich... you can try booking a room here at the posh CANNES CARLTON HOTEL. It is said that the then unknown BB (that's Brigitte Bardot - thank you) strapped on a sexy bikini in 1952 and posed for eager photographers here at the hotel. She effectively put TWO things on the world map - HERSELF and the CARLTON HOTEL. :-) The rest, as we all know, is history. If old world elegance and being just steps away from the Palais is your idea of glamor, then this is the hotel for you. We also managed to take a peek at the nightclub on the top-most floor... and unless you are dressed in latest fashion ensemble, don't even bother to enter (as we discovered). Because you won't be able to....
If you go during the off-peak season, you can get a room for less than US$100 per night. Not kidding. Try this website:
If you decide to come during the peak summer months, be prepared to fork out as much as US$500 and above per night for a simple room.
Excellent star-spotting opportunities abound, esp. during the Cannes Film Festival.
