Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Beau Rivage
Great location, fantastic bedsfrom Fifilamue
The look was very minimalistic and not charming, apart from the shutters, and the finishing was poor especially under the bathroom sink and the wires for the computers were all over the place. But the Villeroy Boch bath was a lovely deep treat and I didn't have to wrap my knees under my chin!
We loved the private beach. Really comfortable beds to lie on but it's a shame that hotel residents have to pay as much as someone walking in off the promenade (10 Euros). Worth it though! I was upset that I was stopped taking in a bottle of water though - had to pay 6 euros for the honour of buying a litre of Evian so sneaked my own in the next day!
Had problems with logging on to the internet (on the plasma tv) as the cap locks wouldn't turn off. After phoning the help desk in London and in turn them liaising with the hotel everything was sorted out. Great to be able to get emails without searching out a local internet cafe.
The location has to be one of the best - right on the edge of the old town with all its shops and restaurants and within easy walking distance of the port and the main shopping areas. I would go back here or at least to another hotel nearby depending on deals available at the time.
Chic and great locationfrom Queen_Anne_Drizzle
Location - Excellent! Right next to Vieux Nice. 20 minute walk from the train station. Right on the street that borders the water.
Room - Modern and stylish. Clean. Creative. Spacious. decorative touches. Flat screen TV on the wall.
Service - No complaints
Overall, the best hotel we stayed at in France (we stayed in 5 different hotels and this was not the most expensive one either).
DO NOT EAT AT THE RESTAURANT ACROSS THE HOTEL CALLED LA PETITE MAISON (NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE HOTEL). This was the worst dining experience we've ever had in France.
Great Locationfrom ShirleyIreland
We didn't have breakfast, again thanks to the advice of reviewers here, but there are lots of fabulous places to have breakfast in town.
The best thing about this hotel is its location, it is just beside the Old Town and on the Promenade (but away from the hectic side of it). If you can swing the extra few Euro, then a superior room with a sea view and balcony would make a lovely treat.
Long on location but short on charm.from Underhill
As far as I could tell from a quick look, the rooms facing the courtyard are much to be preferred; they seemed to have the amenities pushed on the hotel's web site (rolling shades, large bathrooms) that street-facing rooms lacked. Our deluxe room had so little space between the long wall counter (note: no drawers) and the beds that only one of us could get by at a time, a real problem when someone was sitting in front of the computer area and the other needed to get by.
In both of the rooms we had the bathrooms were small; in one the bathroom floor was not level with that of the bedroom, making toe-stubbing all too easy.
However, the beds were quite comfortable and the air-conditioning was good--at least, in the bedrooms, as the halls were consistently hot and stuffy. The reading lights above the bed were excellent, and the bed linens were lovely. We wondered, however, who thought that eiderdowns were appropriate for Nice's summer weather. Our travelling companion had to turn the air-conditioning up full blast in order not to roast during the night, there being nothing on offer but the duvets.
Our biggest problem other than street noise was that the much-vaunted Internet connections were iffy. In our first room my husband was unable to get the cable connection to work, despite spending nearly an hour on the telephone with a support outfit based in London. He finally set things up for WiFi usage, but when we changed rooms the WiFi no longer worked.
Most of the reception staff were pleasant and helpful, although I had trouble arranging for the room change. The first person I asked said unhelpfully that nothing was available on the courtyard, never suggesting a room on the side street. The Asian man, who appeared to understand the value of client satisfaction, was the one who offered a solution to the noise problem.
We were surprised to note a number of upkeep problems in this recently renovated hotel: carpet stains, bits of molding pulled away from the walls, nicks in the walls, poor carpet installation in the halls.
I suspect that the hotel is designed to appeal to people traveling on business--certainly it has none of the charm that would attract vacationers. We certainly would not return.
private beach was the best thing about this hotel,from FiKent

Wonderful holiday!from mlstravel
Needs to get through growing painsfrom SeasonedTrvlr
Also the staff here has a big attitude. And the breakfast is too expensive to be worth it (go down the street to Le Pain Quotidien).
Would I stay here again, yes, because most of the other hotels in Nice are crummy. But frankly next time I come to the Riviera I'd stay in St. Tropez, Cap Ferat or any of other nicer areas. Nice you can tell is like the Fort Lauderdale of the Riviera and those in the know stay elsewhere.
Excellent hotel!from thegoodlife1000

Top Local Tips for Nice
Best restaurant in Nice! If you are looking for an exceptional dining experience, check out LaPetite Maison (11 Rue Saint François de Paule, Nice). The food is fabulous, the staff is wonderful, and the environment can't be beat! The Chateaubriand is especially good...
Dinning Stay off the touristy stretches and you'll find amazing places to eat. If you like strong coffee latte order an espresso with your latte.
Taxis in Nice They are expensive so be ready to pay. If you want to go to any cities near Nice (ex: Monaco, Cannes, St. Tropez) taxis are the best mode of travel but they are expensive - and for good reason - every city near Nice is worth visiting - so don't freak out about the taxi price because you will regret not seeing everything there is to see
