Hôtel Le GenèveOn the outskirts of Nice's Old Town and a few blocks from the Promenade des Arts (where the contemporary art museum is located), Hôtel Le Genève is a contemporary city hotel that offers modern accommodations at affordable rates. The decor here is particularly impressive for a middle-of-the-road hotel, with eclectic old lithographs and photos on the walls, while the restaurant features patterned floral wallpaper and lots of old knickknacks whimsically placed for extra decorative flair. The rooms are much more modern-looking in contrast, with bright magenta drapes and an otherwise charcoal-dominant color scheme, plus sleek bathrooms with cube showers and glass bowl–style sinks, which make it feel like a high-end business hotel, despite its more modest price tags.
