Located in Carré d’Or, Hotel Otero is an excellent option for those looking for a place to relax and unwind after a busy day of exploring Nice. It’s close to everything and only minutes away from white sandy beaches, old town and a ton of shopping. It’s inspired by La Belle” Otero, performer of shows that were revered during the Belle Epoque. The stunning décor is inspired by the lavishness of Nice’s villas in the early 1900’s. Classic mirrors and paintings cover the walls of the hotel, while art deco lamps and photos, from that era, take you back to the dawn of the 20th century. It offers comfortable rooms with cute French balconies and bright and cheerful décor. From 2PM to 6PM the hotel offers Happy Time which is accompanied by sweet pastries and drinks.
As soon as you walk into Hotel Otero you’re immersed into the 1900’s with its fun and playful teal décor. The reception desk is right when you first walk in, where the staff is wearing a classic uniform and are extremely knowledgeable. The entire lobby is surrounded by lavish greenery, various libraries and rich, teal velvet armchairs. There’s also a working fireplace that feels incredibly warm and comforting. The hotel offers you all the necessary information to make the most out of your stay, along with insider tips on what to see and do while visiting Nice.
Upon opening our bedroom door, we were blown away by the retro, yet feminine, décor. From the 4-foot headboard, to the intricate bird’s paradise wallpaper behind the bed, to the colourful lounging chair, no detail went unnoticed. Original fixtures, delicate mirrors, unlimited sitting, every decorative element of this room added value and originality. The bathroom features a large walk-in shower with expensive black and white tiles throughout. The room feels anything but small, and thanks to the large windows, overlooking a sunny terrace, you get a lot of natural daylight.
Hotel Otero’s big comfy beds, nice size bathroom and cute little terrace is just a few of the reasons why this is a must-stay hotel when visiting Nice. The staff is beyond friendly, it’s affordable and with the perfect location to explore the city. It’s a comfortable and quite place to lay your head at night, while still being in the midst of all the excitement.
