A lovely Belle Époque gem in the heart of Nice, just a ten-minute stroll from the Promenade des Anglais

Housed in an elegant 19th-century building, with curved wrought-iron balconies and elaborately fashioned moldings, the lovely Hotel Nice Excelsior invites you to experience Nice as it once was. The exquisite interiors, the work of innovative interior designer Sandrine Alouf, capture the spirit of the French Riviera and the heyday of travel; iconic images and murals line the walls, and large traveler's trunks have been turned into coffee tables and bedside cabinets.

There's more to enjoy here than just the interiors though. This four-star gem – a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner – is located in Nice's vibrant Musicians' Quarter, just a ten-minute stroll from the Promenade des Anglais and the glittering Mediterranean. Browse local galleries, stroll the quaint streets of Nice's Old Town, and explore the local cuisine at the charming cafés and restaurants. Between the Belle Époque magic and the Côte d'Azur glam, you're sure to fall under Nice's spell.
