A chic spa hotel in beautiful Nice with superb city views and a rooftop pool - includes breakfast, wellness perks and more

Nice by name and Nice by nature (sorry, we couldn’t resist!), this glamorous city on the French Riviera has long since drawn visitors with an eye for style. It was once the home of Henri Matisse, and you'll soon see why this city captured the artist’s imagination. Discover this gem of the Côte d’Azur from the comforts of Splendid Hotel & Spa – a contemporary retreat that’s set in the center of the city, just a five-minute walk from Promenade des Anglais and the iconic beach.

After a day exploring the city's beaches, boutiques and cafés, you won't have any trouble unwinding at the hotel. Start with a visit to the spa, where you can enjoy a session in the hammam, a dip in the hot tub or a soothing treatment. Meanwhile, the rooftop is another inviting spot, offering impressive views over the city. And if all that lounging gets your appetite going, just stop by the hotel's restaurant, where you'll enjoy exquisite dishes highlighting fresh, local ingredients and, of course, more breathtaking views.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €2.25 per person, per night, is payable directly to the hotel.

The rooftop pool is closed during the winter.

We like

Splendid Hôtel & Spa sits in Nice’s city center, just a five-minute walk north of Promenade des Anglais and the beach. The Matisse Museum is a 15-minute drive away, and the city’s casinos can be reached in around 10 minutes on foot. 

Explore the historic streets of the Old Town district, Vieille Ville, and take in the Italian architecture, or ascend Castle Hill for a lovely view over the area, a wander around the castle grounds and a dip in the waterfall. The surrounding area is dotted with vineyards, which are best explored by bicycle, and for those who fancy a little less activity and a little more alcohol, wine tastings and vineyard tours abound.
