Rated 4 out of 5 by JBrown Classic Le Meridien in great location
Hotel was great. Super comfortable accommodations with gym and pool also offered. Great location (5 min walk to the old city, right across the street from the beach). Only downside was that you have to pay additional for internet in your room--it just seems stingy after paying so much for the hotel, especially when even budget hotels in the area provide in-room wi-fi for no charge

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frank16 What is the problem with other reviewers
Have just returned from Nice, looked at reviews from other people and was concerned with comments made about cleanliness, staff, and rooms, shouldn't have bothered reading them, this is an excellent Hotel with great facilities, good staff and very clean rooms, location superb, only issue no sun loungers on terrase,thank you all

Rated 4 out of 5 by ginger23 form over function in junior suite
Staff and location excellent. Bed good.
Breakfast poor - bad coffee, bad bread, too crowded.
TERRIBLE smell on balcony - from drains.
Room not as comfortable as hoped - chairs and sofa uncomfortable, no drawers, no bathroom hanging space, No free wifi despite being promised. No coffee maker as promised. Every member of staff really nice and well trained. Roof top bar lovely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KSvaneborg High expectations
Booked a Junior suite and basically got a normal room with separate shower and bigger balcony.
The "Le Meridién" bed so well used that it should have been changed long time ago. The view from the balcony was nice. We did however enjoy the company of "George" the room service guy. I would stay at the hotel again but i would just go for a regular room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ztbaba Ideal location
The Hotel is located in the perfect spot in Nice. Near the best shops and sites of Nice. Some of the amenities are a little bit older and need renovations. However you have all the features of a good 4 star hotel. However location makes up for any short comings. In the area you will find tons of restaurants. In addition the staff was superb and extremely helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nshanker Great Location & Excellent View
Overall the hotel met my expectations and is very conveniently located to restaurants, entertainment and other fun activities. It is a good hotel for business people as well vacationing families. The lobby bar was spacious and very relaxing. I was disappointed that there was no club lounge for Platinum members; however, everything else was very good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Amanda661 Filthy rooms, stingy atmosphere
I was shocked that this hotel scored a four star rating. The fixtures in the bathroom are rusty, the rooms themselves are dingy, the toiletries are low quality. I also found the staff to be unhelpful. The only redeeming factor is the location. It is in the center of everything there is to do in Nice, which was terrific!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gerardus Some weak points
1/ The breakfast is very good but the restaurant is very average. Other Meridien hotels offer much better quality food.
2/ It was bizarre that the staff decided on the opening hours of the swimming pool without management being aware of important changes. These changes made it it impossible to use the pool (which was one of the reasons we chose the hotel)

Rated 4 out of 5 by animan huge mistake in front desk
I arrived at Nice midnight. The emplyee is the front desk gave me the wrong room. I showed the my resevation in my smart phone's application, but he didn't show any attention and read that. I said to him my last name as Jung, but he recognized my last name as Jang.
I think the education of English should be included for reception employee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CPCP wonderful room
Check-in staff was very helpful. I got upgraded to a wonderful junior suite, corner balcony and ocean view, because of my Starwood Platinum status. the room itself has a very comfy bed and a great bathroom with separate walk-in shower and bathtub. I will be back!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dutchie Far too expensive for what you get
From a 350 € room, one would expect more than that it's just clean and OK. I've had much nicer hotel rooms for far less money. My room had no view whatsoever (unless you call 3 walls a view). Breakfast was very plain for a hotel with this standard. Conclusion: you simply pay for the location at Promenade des Anglais. Staff is friendly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rebecca49 Great location
Great location in Nice, France. Directly across from the beach. Within easy walking distance to great shopping and Old Towne. The staff was warm, welcoming and polite to us even though we didn't speak a word of French. We enjoyed 3 nights here and would return without hesitation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NICK1234567 Never again
After booking in October my room was wrong, i also took advantage of a Brekfast deal which the staff failed to have on my details and charged me full price. For the money i would certainly try somewhere else...Terrace Bar and Location good but massively over priced.
Didnt have anyof my starwood points

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peccaviman Very quiet despite location
Great location, good food though service on the Terrace could have been better on the day, mistake with order but this can happen
Even though room was on BA, very quiet and easy to sleep
Only criticism with room is more designed as a leisure hotel, so no dedicated work space, other wise was great

Rated 4 out of 5 by VeraD Perfect location, good service
The hotel is perfectly placed in the heart of town, close to everything you could possibly want. The rooms were a bit small, but the terrace more than made up for that (deluxe room). Clean and tidy bathroom and separate toilet which is actually quite practical! The roof terrace is nice, but not so cosy that I would love to hang out there for more than a drink or two. I think some plants and flowers would make it much better.
The staff were very helpful, serviceminded, kind and knew good english, they were absolutely lovely (all the staff, including reception, maids and at breakfast service and in the bar).
What really is a dissapointment theese days is that they don't have complimentary wi-fi in the rooms, only in the lobby. To me that is quite odd and very old fashioned to be in a modern country, in a hotel on the high-end-scale. Even hotels with lesser stars give their customers free wi-fi. It really is a pitty, It would have made our trip much more comfortable and easier if the hotel offered that. The breakfast is quite simple, and as a scandinavian (who is used to big and healthy breakfasts with lots of greens, different kinds of breads and cheeses and so on), I would recommend my fellow Scandinavians to go out for breakfast, or at least lower your expectations of the hotel breakfast. It was only OK, but I would expect more from a hotel of this class.
Overall a good hotel which I would recommend, mostly for the location and the comfort of the room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Enrique2013 Good location - but expected more vs price
Classic room: Good room size, clean, very comfortable bed with down pillow and comforter. Bathroom was however old and smelled like mildew - not acceptable for a 4 star hotel - needs to be refurbished. No breakfast included

I stayed here on and off for a total of four nights while touring southern France. Everything about the hotel was great, from its appearance, courtesy of the staff, and SPG recognition. I would definitely recommend to others and plan on returning again myself!

Perfect location! The hotel staffs are friendly, room is clean, and very good to see the enviromental friendly policy. The room upgrade is not so surprising as experienced in Asia, but not bad in Europe. The sea view is excellent! Will recommend this hotel

Excellent location --- and very helpful staff. My wife and I had never been to Nice. The hotel was very friendly and very helpful. The provided suggestions where to eat and shop plus local maps. Next time in Nice, we will be staying at the Le Meridien.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChefDMD Best view in Nice
You really cannot beat the location and view... right on the water on the Promenade des Anglais... The view from the Old Nice side is breathtaking of the sea and old Nice.You are walking distance to most of the points of interest in Nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 Gracious hosts, great location, quiet nights
First, the hotel staff is the best. They are unfailingly friendly and helpful. The location cannot be beat. Our room was quiet and the beds were so cozy and comfortable that the only problem we encountered was getting up in the morning.

Rated 4 out of 5 best location in Nice
i didnt really feel special at all here as a result of my gold status, and the room was very small, with limited amenities, but the location is perfect, and having the balcony onto the sea made up for the room completely.
