Hotel Negresco - Nice


The beautiful Hotel Negresco in Nice is celebrating its centenary  with year, with an open exhibition displaying the best the hotel has to offer. Established in 1912 by Romanian Henri Negresco, it is an icon of the Belle Epoque era on the Promenade des Anglais overlooking the sea...

Throughout the hotel, there are some lovely pieces of artwork on display, including these quirky, stylish pieces by Parisian artist Niki de Saint Phalle whose saxophonist sculpture outside the entrance to the hotel is of Miles Davis the jazzman....The quirkiest part of the hotel, however is the cafe La Rotunde whereby you sit beneath chandeliers surrounded by horses escaped from the carousel.....And don't miss the bathrooms where you are ushered in by these rather interesting Cossack figures on the doors.....
