Best Areas to Stay in Nice
Promenade des Anglais
The Promenade must be listed first. The seafront is the top place to stay in Nice. Some of the best hotels in Nice are situated here, but you can also find cheaper 2 or 3 star hotels, especially when you go further from the city centre on the western section of the Promenade.
Nice Inner City (Centre-Ville)
The inner city starts immediately behind the Promenade and the Paillon River (in the south-east) and reaches up to the train station (Gare de Nice-Ville) in the north. If you stay here, you will realize that Nice is much more than just the sea – it has a beautiful old town with numerous streets, squares, shops, and cafés.
The third popular area to stay in Nice is the western part of the city centre, Les Baumettes. It also includes the western section of the seafront. If you are on a budget, you will find the highest concentration of affordable hotels here.
