Radisson Blu Hotel Nice
223 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, French Riviera - Cote d'Azur, 06200, France
The hotel is remote, but they don't cater to this. If you want to use the pool...it costs extra. Since when does a hotel that owns a pool charge you to sit in a chair? It makes it difficult to enjoy the day in Nice, and when you come back to your hotel where you are PAYING to stay, they charge you again to sit at their pool. Hotel staff is minimally helpful and callous to questions.
Unique Quality: Nice everything, just far away.
Calm and facing Promenade des Anglais
I stayed in my member hotel here. For me, there are some advantages to stay here but it is rather expensive. The food is good particularly breakfast. The service is good and individualized. The room is fairy large and well-equipped. It has two restaurants. One outdoor restaurant and a swimming pool (closed and heated up in winter, respectively).It is facing Nice's famous Promenade des Anglais and you can take a long walk or jog along the beach. Free access to high speed internet. Bring your own lap-top. It is far from the city center (3-4 km) and you need to take a bus or taxi. Its a good distance to take a long walk also. It is closer to the airport than most of other hotels.
Unique Quality: Clean, large room and individualized service, good food
Directions: Take a taxi or bus from the airport and get off "St.Helen". Tell the driver hotel's name if you are not sure.

Very nice hotel if you can get an Sea View
Large rooms (a little dated but very clean), probably the largest room we had in all of France.
Make sure to get an Sea view or Garden View (you can still see the Sea from the Garden view room).
Breakfast in the restaurant here is totally awesome, but expensive (about 20 US dollars).
This hotel is pretty far from downtown Nice, so if you stay here you should have a car.
The only bad thing about our time here was the doormen who have to park your car.
They seemed very put out everytime we asked to get our car from them.
Unique Quality: The rooftop pool is nice, it has an awesome view.
Air conditioning in the room worked well.
The glass sliding doors to the balcony were very sound proof.

Overlook the Cote D'Azur in Nice
This is the lovely view from the rooftop of the Radisson SAS Hotel in Nice. There is year-around 150 square meter heated lap pool up here and The Terrace Restaurant is open from June through September for lunch and dinner. There is no charge for using this pool if you are a guest at the Radisson.
The hotel itself is modern and located right on the Promenade des Anglais. The Bleu Citron Restaurant has giant sea-facing windows that offer a beautiful view of the palm trees and the Mediterrean while enjoying breakfast buffet. The breakfast here was excellent! They offered sauteed cherry tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, potato pops all served in bright red skillets. They also had hot meats, scrambled eggs and the usual cold cuts, crusty bread, croissants, cheeses, cold cereal, yogurt, fruit bowls and fresh fruit.
The airport is one kilometer away and planes can be seen taking off from the runway.
The rooms were quite modern and the beds were covered with eiderdown duvets. The location of the hotel is 3.5 K from old town but the bus line is right at the hotel and will take you quickly into Old Nice. We thought the Bleu Citron Restaurant was a very pleasant place to start the day; watching the light of day arrive while viewing the Mediterrean Sea.
I found the Radisson SAS Nice to be a rather standard hotel with a few downsides. The location is convenient for the airport but otherwise quite out of the way. Rooms are large and while the view from the seaview rooms is nice they are also quite loud with traffic noises from the Promenade des Anglais, which in this area is more a busy through street than actually a promenade. Otherwise the ameneties are pretty standard and nothing special. The public areas are unspectecular.
Most disappointing was that the hotel actually charges extra for use of the pool deck with it's rather limited operating hours and the fitness center. Given the rather high rates at the Radisson this seemed strange to me. There are better choices in the area.
Nice hotel but a bit out of town
Stayed for 2 nights on business. It's a good hotel but it's a bit away from the main tourist area. Great breakfast which was included in the price. We stayed at Hotel Massenet before moving to the Radisson. The Massenet isn't a fancy hotel like the Radisson but the rooms were just as good for half the price and it was beside the old town and pedistrian area. However, the view from the Radisson was fabulous. Nice is a beautiful town and well worth a visit.
nice hotel but some downsides
stayed at the radisson in nice recently, and room lovely, gorgeous sea view, staff helpful and got good deal on room from expedia...BUT, the hotel is right on a very busy 6 lane road so could only hear traffic and not the sea, although double glazing effective...and the walk into town might be off putting for some,(30-40 mins depending on walking speed)... a curtesy shuttle bus would have been worth it's weight in gold! we didn't get any taxis so can't comment on them. there are buses that run right outside the hotel into nice but these stop at 8.50pm back out so.... there is a local nightbus however. so all in all, lovely, clean, well run hotel that caters for alot of business people and has service to match, which you would expect at the price, but for peaceful seaside visit, maybe not ideal.
Not too impressed....
The hotel is lovely as far as decor is concerned...but the service was horrible. We were ripped off by the car rental service and treated badly by the concierge. The evening concierge was very kind, but the daytime concierge was very stuck up. He was not very helpful and did not seem like he knew much about his job. We stayed here during our honeymoon tour of Europe and Nice was our final stop before heading home. The concierges in London, Paris and Rome were 50 times better than this one. My navigating skills and intuition got us places faster than this concierge could. The breakfast buffet was good, but it is a rip off. We only ate there on our last day becasue we had to rush off to the airport. I would suggest looking into the many other hotels nearby.
Night-time danger outside the Radisson
Female guests at the Radisson on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice would do well to avoid the Promenade at night. This reviewer noticed dozens of very young girls soliciting outside the Radisson hotel itself and all along the street outside when returning from a day trip, only to be later accosted in front of the hotel by an aggressive kerb crawler. Seemingly, the local police and hotel reception are turning a blind eye to public safety outside the premises!
On the plus side, this hotel offers a nice outdoor swimming pool with beautiful views, though a free pass for residents would be welcome- €15 is excessive and precludes use of the facilities by the quickie early morning swimmer during the period when the charge applies.
Nice hotel - out of the way location!
Enjoy a lovely view of the French Riveria at the top of this Radisson SAS Hotel. There is a year round 150 square meter heated lap pool up here and the Terrace Restaurant is open from June through September for lunch and dinner. As guests of the Radisson we were not charged to use the pool.
The hotel itself is modern and located right on the Promenade des Anglais. The Bleu Citron Restaurant has huge glass windows that face the Mediterrean Sea and the lovely palm trees that line the Promenade. All this can be enjoyed while eating the breakfast buffet. The breakfast was excellent! They offered sauteed cherry tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, potato pops all served in bright red skillets. They also had hot meats, scrambled eggs and the usual cold cuts, crusty bread, croissants, cheeses, cold cereal, yogurt, fruit bowls land fresh fruit.
The airport is one kilometer away and planes can be seen taking off and arriving. The rooms were quite modern decor - the beds were covered with eider down duvets. The location of the hotel is 3.5 k from old town but the bus line is right at the hotel and will take you into old town in Nice.
