The Victor Hugo Hotel in Nice is a boutique hotel located in the heart of Nice, on the boulevard of the same name. The building was constructed in 1905, while the reputation of the French Riviera was already beginning to attract tourists from around the world.
The property has a total of seven rooms, all decorated and appointed with a different theme. They include les Orientales, Guernsey, the Esmeralda, the Jean Cocteau, La Gilliatt, Gavroche and finally the room Des Rayons et des Ombres (Rays and Shadows). Prices range from 89 to 150 euros
Established in 1910, the hotel reopened after a complete renovation in 2011, under the direction of Gilles, its current owner. Gilles is a former Clefs d’Or concierge, which is definitely a guarantee of quality. He can adapt to the needs of each client to produce the best service and make your stay as pleasant as possible. Foreign customers have also found in the Victor Hugo hotel a great base, in paticular American travellers, who have the reputation of being very demanding. You are sure to have a pleasant stay.
The main advantages of this venue are the friendliness of the place, the atmosphere, the service, and the proximity of the building with Nice's old town shops and of course with the sea. Bonus for the gay clientele, Gilles is gay himself and will warmly welcome, if you travel alone, as a couple or with your gay friends. He will also be able to give you the best tips about Nice's vibrant gay life.
Finally, when we ask Gilles which are the best times of year to come and enjoy his property and Nice, he replies with a grin that each season has its charm. Indeed, the micro climate of Nice, known for its sweetness and bright sunshine throughout the year, is a special attraction that will seduce tourists from around the world. And of course one should not forgot that Nice's gay life is the most vibrant community in the whole south of France.
