Aficionados of boutique chic will stay nowhere else in Nice. The Hi Hôtel simply has it all, from hip, smart and functional public spaces to organic menus and a state-of-the-art hammam, while not forgetting, of course, some of the coolest accommodation on the Riviera. Rooms and suites seem to have been designed to correspond to the differing moods of the city. The funky 'techno' rooms, for example, provide the ideal recovery space for nighthawks and clubbers on tour, while the 'white & white' rooms cater to just the opposite market, offering serene and restful retreats for ethereal flâneurs. Whether it's a retro Barbarella vibe you want or a mini design temple with cast-iron lava bath, this place has it all. DJs provide a dance-music soundtrack on some nights, either on the panoramic roof terrace or down below, in the hotel's bar. There's also a small pool, a sweet interior courtyard and an abundance of helpful, switched-on staff.
