Four Star Nice hotels

Most popular areas in Nice for 4-star hotels

The flower-dotted city of Nice – based in sun-kissed southern France – is brimming with art museums, cultural sights, and and flashy 4-star hotels. For a stellar city center location, stay just off the main Jean-Médecin avenue – this area is sprinkled with rustic restaurants and small theaters. For immediate access to Nice’s balmy and aquamarine Mediterranean waters, stay along the main stretch of pebble beachfront. For an affluent inland neighborhood of palm-lined boulevards and upscale hotels, stay in the residential Riquier neighborhood.

Top 4-star hotels in Nice

The Hotel Aston La Scala is a vast, palatial 4-star hotel championing enormous ensuite guestrooms, a roomy rooftop terrace, and glistening-blue outdoor pool. The Hotel Beau Rivage, meanwhile, is a sleek and modern seafront hotel with a lavish beach bar and its own exclusive private stretch of beach. The Radisson Blue is another modern waterfront getaway, secluded away from the buzzing city center, and boasting a private beach, rooftop terrace, flashy fitness center, and a shimmering outdoor swimming pool.

Where to find the best restaurants in Nice

Nice’s historic old town – the Vieille Ville – sits just behind the main beachfront in the city center, and blends high-end haute cuisine with casual local restaurants. Foodies after classic Nicois dining will find bars and restaurants serving socca, a chickpea flatbread, and pissaladierre, a pizza-type bread topped with sautéed onion. There are also gourmet restaurants in the old center, too. You’ll also find a few gourmet restaurants scattered along the palm-lined Boulevard Jean Jaures, while the hotel restaurants strung along the Promenade des Anglais champion fresh seafood.

The most popular things to do in Nice

Culture vultures will feel right at home in Nice’s rich array of fine art galleries and museums. Begin at the Musée Matisse, a 3-story red 17th-century villa containing a huge collection of Matisse’s work – from early sketches to surreal sculptures. The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art is another must-see for art fiends – 2 grey stone cubes, connected by a futuristic glass and iron facade, contain permanent and touring collections, from avant-garde artworks to American pop art. In the afternoon, get some fresh air at the Parc de la Colline du Chateau, a rocky, tree-covered hill looming over Nice, crowned with Medieval castle ruins and a cascading artificial 18th-century waterfall, casting off rainbow reflections. After, stroll the beachfront Promenade des Anglais, and take a dip in the azure ocean.

Best ways to get around Nice

Nice offers a speedy and easy-to-use tram line, which circles around the city in a U-shaped route. Not only is the tram efficient, it also doubles up as a pleasant way to sightsee the city. There are plenty of public buses, too. For hassle-free transport, cruise around by taxicab – these can be hailed on the street or booked in advance. If you’re spending all of your time in the historic town center and around the beachfront, it’s possible to explore on foot alone.
