In the heart of Nice, on the Promenade des Anglais, you will immediately notice the building of Hôtel Negresco (luxury hotel «Negresco» with white walls and a pink dome) built in neoclassical style and having long become a kind of «architectural symbol» of the Côte d’Azur and Nice.

hotel negresco niceIn this famous hotel for all its more than a century history no less famous and eminent lodgers stayed.

Suffice it to mention the names of Salvador Dali, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Aznavour, Coco Chanel, Pablo Picasso... the entire list would be too long!

The first owner and the «creator» of the hotel, Henri Negresco, opened it (since then the hotel is named after him) on the fourth of January, 1913. At that time Mr. Negresco spent no less than three million gold francs on the construction of its «child».

The «destiny» of the Hotel Negresco is quite interesting. After the opening it was very popular among the powerful, the rich and the famous, but the outbreak of the First World War soon «turned» the hotel in a military hospital. After the war the hotel owner burdened by loans was forced to sell it.

For some time the building was not in the best condition, but its former glory was revived by the Augiers family (especially, Madame Jeanne Augier) who acquired it in 1957, the year. For many years Jeanne collected the luxury items and works of art for the hotel (now the hotel is very like a museum - there are more than six thousand unique works of different genres).

The current owner of the Hôtel Negresco was also actively involved in charity work. (And even bequeathed her hotel to the fund which helps homeless people and animals. That means that the part of the profit will always be earmarked for charity).

In 2003, through the efforts of the Augiers the hotel was included in the French list of architectural sites of historical significance.

From the building of Hôtel Negresco the guests can in just a 10-15 minute walk get to the historic centre and reach the Nice-Ville railway station. The airport «Nice Côte d'Azur» is also "at hand" - only 5 km.

The visitors come to Nice and take up residence in this famous hotel hoping to enjoy the atmosphere that prevailed on the French Riviera in the middle of the XX century. And they are never deceived in their expectations!

The unique hotel building has 121 rooms and 24 special suites, at that they all are luxuriously decorated in a variety of styles from different historical periods (from Louis XIII to modern times).

Even though many rooms are furnished with beautiful antique furniture (four-poster beds), all the amenities for the guests are quire modern – there is the air conditioning, you can always watch TV in-room, use the Internet, the services of fitness centre, spa, etc.

Nearby the Negresco Hotel is a private beach «Neptune» where for an additional fee you can enjoy water sports. The guests leave their cars at the private parking.

In the morning in the restaurant «La Rotonde» with an open kitchen the guests have a breakfast - the «buffet» is served here. For lunch you can order here inexpensive «dish of the day» or sit in the famous «Michelin» expensive «Chantecler» restaurant enjoying the unique atmosphere and admiring the Bay of Angels.

And no matter in what time of the year you have decided to visit Nice - the legendary Hotel Negresco will hospitably open up its doors for you!
