“Pre WWI luxury”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

This hotel has the perfect location by the sea. It is old but still going strong. The staff were very becoming, always. There are two reataurants in the building: La Chanteclere and La Routonde. The first with its two stars was heavenly in ALL aspects, the second felt a little disorganized when it came to service and timing. The bar was nicely furnished and gave an impression of early pre WWI luxury, though the Bloody Mary was far to weak.

Dear Bettinasgranddad,
Thank you for taking the time to post a comment! Our Chef, Jean-Denis Rieubland was very pleased to read that you enjoyed your diner at Le Chantecler. Did you know that Le Chantecler was just awarded its second Michelin star?
As regard to La Rotonde, we take your comment into consideration and we will work on it.
Yet we hope to see you again soon!

My husband and I have just returned from 3 nights at Le Negresco and we couldn't have had a more wonderful honeymoon. Upon check in we were upgraded to a sea view room which was gorgeous. The room was a good size, we particularly loved the gold bathroom! The service we received throughout our stay was excellent. We enjoyed cocktails in the bar and dinner at the brasserie restaurant. The position of the hotel is perfect, we walked everywhere and loved being directly opposite the beach.

All in all, an amazing hotel for a special occasion!

Stunning interior and great service. Main restaurant needs to be booked weeks in advance for Saturday dinners and Sunday brunches. La Rotonda restaurant is perfectly fine too (same chef). Our room was not glamorous but had a great character and was perfectly comfortable. Great spacious bathroom. Thin entrance door, so one could hear a large and loud tourist family arguing about something in the corridor late at night. Very nice handcraft and souvenir shop at the back of the main hall. Try a bourbon sour at the hotel bar.

Stayed February 2012

the hotel is all glits in the loby but once you get to your room it is just an avarage hotel with a very large price tag not worth the money

Room Tip: find a hotel near the old town

Dear BJHarrt,
We are really sorry to read that you did not enjoy jour time with us and surprised that you found the hotel "average", which is not a description often used for Le Negresco!

Positive points:
-Beautiful hotel, it feels like travelling in time!
-Breakfast and lunch at Le Caroussel was fantastic, great service and food was excellent.
-Staff was very pleasant, from Concierge to cleaning ladies.
-Room was very pleasant with a child, lots of space and really nice decoration, view on the little park rue de Rivoli, quiet and very clean. Bathroom was beautiful. Lots of light.

Negative points:
-Bad isolation between rooms, It was stinking cigarette in our room the last evening/night because we got smoking neighbours... With children and pregnant wife, not ideal at all.
-Problems with water leaking from shower (lots of water) due to wrong rebuilding and little communication between management to find a proper solution for us. The room that was proposed to us the next day was not as good standard and smaller. We decided to stay in the original room but still no solution was proposed.

Room Tip: View on the rue de Rivoli!! Bigger rooms and way quieter than directly in front of the Promenade, a...
