Five Star Nice hotels

Most popular areas in Nice for 5-star hotels

The seafront city of Nice, a historic French Riviera resort city overlooking the azure Mediterranean waters, offers plenty of exclusive 5-star hotels. The Promenade des Anglais, a palm-lined beachfront boulevard stretching from the center to the airport, is speckled with classy accommodations. You’ll also find a couple of glitzy getaways on the buzzing Boulevard Victor Hugo, in the modern Jean-Medecin area, which boasts upscale restaurants and boutiques. Stay near the shimmering Port de Beaulieu-sur-Mer, meanwhile, for total tranquility.

Top 5-star hotels in Nice

The Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Mediterranee, meanwhile, boasts a flashy fitness center, exclusive casino, and shimmering indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The extravagant, luxury accommodation keeps on coming with the Boscolo Exedra Nice, Autograph Collection – a vast whitewashed hotel with a full-service spa and rejuvenating health club.

Where to find the best restaurants in Nice

Nice’s luxury 5-star hotels host ritzy restaurants and dining rooms serving gourmet French cuisine and classic Nicois dishes with a strong fresh seafood component. In Nice’s old town – the Vieille Ville – winding cobbled streets, fronted by tangerine-colored terraced buildings, house a range of rustic, traditional, and classy Nice restaurants. If you’re looking for fine French gourmet cooking with a modern and innovative edge, look to the exclusive restaurants along the Boulevard Jean Jaures, just north of the Vieille Ville.

The most popular things to do in Nice

There’s plenty of museums and heritage sights in Nice to keep culture vultures occupied. Art lovers can start at Musée Matisse, a red 17th-century villa, containing bright, multicolored tapestries and ceramics by the great French artist. At the upper end of the Boulevard Jean Jaures, discover the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. Behind the 2 sheer stone cubes and glinting glasswork that forms its exterior, discover 1,000s of inspiring artworks, from pop art to avant-garde paintings. After, stroll through the Vieille Ville – admiring its cobbled streets, persimmon-colored houses, and churches – to the Promenade des Anglais. Here, scout out a suitable spot on the pebbly beach, and take a dip in the ocean. Later, splurging shoppers can indulge in the designer boutiques – including Hermes and Louis Vuitton – near the Avenue de Verdun.

Best ways to get around Nice

If you plan to spend most of your time between the old town, center, and main stretch of beach, you should find that you’ll be able to get around Nice on foot alone – the roomy walkways and leafy boulevards are welcoming to pedestrians. Otherwise, cruise around by local taxicab, which can be hailed on the street or booked in advance. A public tram line also glides throughout all of Nice’s key city areas. For luxury VIP transport, you can book a chauffeur service from a private company.
