I was pleasantly surprised by the availability of affordable apartment rentals in Nice (we stayed at the end of April). As in Paris, I was looking for a bright, spacious apartment located in Vieux Nice for three people. I settled on this place, and it was perfect for us.
Old Nice is primarily pedestrian-only and charming. I loved walking to the market for fresh fruit every morning and grabbing coffee and croissants to enjoy for breakfast in the apartment. The apartment had everything we needed including a fully-stocked modern kitchen and bathroom. It is a 4th-floor walk-up, meaning we got our share of steps in every day! The apartment is air-conditioned although we preferred open windows in April. I would easily stay in this apartment again on a future trip to Nice, but I would also consider staying in a smaller neighbouring seaside town to experience something new.
Other hotel and apartment considerations are the luxurious Negresco and the Hyatt Regency Nice as well as this loft, this spacious apartment, this bright apartment, this large apartment, and this modern apartment.
