The breakfast was buffet and very good. They provided a nice selection of food. The hotel is the perfect location from which to explore Nice. It's the best location for someone who doesn't like to or can't walk very far. We were able to get to everything we wanted to see by foot. The large department store is on the corner and they have a grocery store so the bottled water was much cheaper there. The walking street is about a 5 minute walk and there lots of good restaurants. Food was very expensive compared to Germany and the United States so bring extra euros! The walkway by the water is beautiful and you can get there in about 10 minutes by foot. You can also go to Monte Carlo by train for 6 euros round trip. That was much cheaper than the tours and the trains leave and arrive about every hour from Nice.
