Rated 2 out of 5 by MH1974 Wifi should be free
For the first time the last 3 years (travel 120 days a year) I was in a hotel which did not have free wifi - it is the same as saying I need to pay ekstra to use the toilet.

We were booked into this hotel by Viking Cruises on a pre-cruise package. Because we were given reduced rates, we were placed in a room that overlooked a quad facing other rooms without air conditioning. If we wanted A/C or a room with a view, we would have had to pay close to 200 Euro more per night.
The included breakfast each morning, and the proximity to Old Town Nice were the best parts of our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VikingLinda Great Location. Great Hotel
The location just across from the beach was fantastic. We were able to walk to Castle Hill and take the elevator up to the top. From there walk to the old town and experience all it had to offer. Then just a block in the other direction was a pedestrian area with lots of places for local food. Only problem was there was no toilet in the public area that did not require climbing down, and then up a flight of stairs. Never found the pool as it was also a flight of stairs, with no elevator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve1468 Nice hotel - shame about the coffee !
The room and public areas were very rice but we only had breakfast on our first day. It was not clear either from the staff or due to the lack of a menu card what was a buffet and what was a full breakfast. My wife only wanted a light breakfast ( coffee, croissant and cheese) and was advised somewhat officiously by the manager that cheese was not 'buffet' but she would only charge us the buffet price on this occasion. Frankly it was not the question of price but more the manner in which she was spoken to in front of other diners which my wife found embarrassing. Also we were disappointed that in a quality 4* hotel we were unable to get a good cup of freshly brewed coffee either at breakfast or at other times.It always came from a machine which produced weak watery drinks lacking any real flavour.
Lovely hotel but as a result we ate and drank outside thereafter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GSTPV Bathroom amenities shortage
- A petty that the bathroom amenities did not include bathrobe & slippers!
- Music in the lift much too loud.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HospitalitybyMW Mediacore hotel in a stunning location.
We were very underwhelmed. As SPG Platinum member we were upgraded to a Deluxe Room with sea view and “balcony” – the room was on the small side and the balcony was a “French” balcony, e.g. one can hardly stand on it, and it has only one small door to access it: In short if this is the best available room: I don’t even want to know what their superior rooms look like – especially at these kind of rates. Towels in the room had skid marks on them (and worst was not replaced after service), the bath sinks looked very dirty. The two complimentary bottles of water we finished after day one, were not restocked, nor did we receive new bathroom amenities. The card reader on the door worked very badly – we struggled each and every time to get the door open (literally taking 7 or more swipes to get in) – one morning we met a lady from housekeeping who was working on the floor: she looked at us struggling with the door, looked us in the eyes and subsequently walked away – an embarrassing gesture. One of the worst starwood breakfast selections ever experienced: we arrived the first morning at 09:20 – the breakfast closes at 10:00. During the breakfast we were approached three times by the same lady hostess (once by walking into the restaurant, once while at the table, once while walking the buffet) who asked for our room number. In general there was an extreme amount of staff, all running around and being “very busy” – we were not sure with what or whom… we had the last two mini croissants (they were not restocked), when we asked we were told they were “finished” – there was unripe fruit (green bananas), canned orange juice (I literally saw a waiter pour two cartons of juice into a steel container before re-pouring it into the serving containers on the buffet), tasteless processed ham and cheese (a “hotel block”) and the worst “Illy” coffee I ever tasted. When I complained to the manager I was told that there were in fact fresh juices, but had not been stocked, the fruit was ripe and that the coffee could not be bad because it was Illy – all in a very hostile and “you are the only one complaining” kind of way (we overheard a German and Dutch family complaining as well). The pool on the rooftop is so tiny you can hardly swim in it and the beautiful rooftop terrace was dead on both nights. The location itself is stunning (Promenade Anglais is one of the most beautiful boulevards in the world and the city of Nice is very, - well -, nice) but this hotel, remaining as one of the few Le Meridien’s in France does not put any justice to its name, location nor expected service level and that is highly unfortunate. Upon complaining to the hotel's director of rooms, I received a long email essentially mentioning that "I missed the items that were not on the buffet and that there are in fact fresh juices" - he also pointed out that our room was serviced twice and all towels and bathrooms were cleaned up to standards - even though the pictures I took speak for themselves. I did not receive a reply after trying to initiate another email to receive an apporiate compensation.

Le Meridien Nice is very centrally located - easy access from the airport as well as all the local stores and downtown Nice. We had an unbelievable stay - Front desk is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast served daily is amazing! Looking forward to our next trip to Nice!
