Le Negresco first opened its doors on January 8th, 1913. The hotel, designed by Henri Negrescu, immediately attracted a brilliant international clientele, Kings of the old and the new world. Jeanne Augier is the guardian of this myth. Owner of the Palace since 1957, this great lady – with deeply-rooted convictions – has devoted her life to the preservation and the development of this unique heritage.
Facing the Mediterranean Sea on the famous Promenade des Anglais, the hotel is a few minutes’ walk away from Nice old town. The perfect combination of historic and contemporary is Negresco’s trademark. Equipped and personalized with exceptional period furniture, each one of the 96 rooms and 21 suites draws its inspiration from the most remarkable French art periods. From Louis XIII style to modern art, five centuries of history are represented. Every room and suite is equipped with LCD TV and wifi access.
Member of The Leading Hotels of the World, celebrating their 100 years. The house was initially built as the home of the Negresco family, suffered the Nazi impacts, becoming a hospital, and now stands proud in Nice as the top luxury hotel.
A must try is La Rotonde Brasserie, a décor filled with vibrant colors, an 18th century carousel and its wooden horses make La Rotonde a very unexpected place. It is a warm and bright restaurant where it is pleasant to linger after a delicious gourmet meal. A simple menu and yet full of creative surprises. From the first sunny days, its terrace opens onto the sea and the sun. And a sumptuous breakfast at the terraces of the La Rotonde is in order every morning, while you see Nice wake up and become alive, along with the smell and feel of the Mediterranean breeze. I particularly, had the joy and honor to enjoy mines accompanied by Mr. Bord – General Manage of this unexpected palace.
Le Relais Bar, an institution of refinement and fantastic cocktail. With its authentic walnut woodwork from 1913 and its exceptional tapestry from 1683, Negresco’s bar is a place of hushed tasting. When the evening comes the bar wakes to the rhythm of jazz chords and Latino music. Find out more
