The recently opened 5-star Boscolo Hotel Exedra Nice is located on the luxurious Boulevard Victor Hugo in a historical Belle Époque style palazzo, just minutes away from the historical center, luxury boutiques, and the famous Promenade Des Anglais.
The international Nice Cote d'Azur international airport is only 15 minutes away.
The hotel boasts 113 rooms and suites. Some of the rooms feature a common modular system with expandable living space. Refined finishing touches, such as marble and blond wood flooring as well as the ivory and cream hues of the walls, set off the elegant white and gold furnishings of pure and rigorous shape, softened by refined details, at times recalling the decorative motifs of the past.
After three years of large-scale refurbishment, the Boscolo Exedra Nice hotel has taken on a new identity and became the first accredited luxury 5 star brand hotel in Nice. The building has kept its magnificent façade and interior decor, which has been painstakingly restored, under the direction of internationally renowned architects and designers, such as Maurizio Papiri, Adam D. Tihany, Massimo Iosa Ghini, and Simone Micheli.. The common areas and rooms have been refurbished to become symbols of a refined contemporary style.
The historic building housing the hotel harks back to the last century, when, in 1913, M. Baumgartner, a famous Swiss hotelier, called the celebrated and renowned architect, Charles Dalmas (who also built the Carlton Hotel in Cannes) to design the building. Its original name was “Hotel du Rhin” and it was built in the style preferred by the major hoteliers of the time. Located in the heart of the city and set in green surroundings, on the quiet main boulevard, the hotel was intentionally built far from the more popular lively areas, to cater for a wealthy middle-class clientele that preferred tranquil exclusivity to the crowds of the seafront promenade. The sumptuous classical façade in pure “Belle Époque” style and the opulent decor of its interiors, inspired by 18th century Rococo, immediately seduce those who seek elegance, charm and style first and foremost.
Charles Dumas gracefully interpreted the balanced canons that characterize the Louis XVI style, applying them harmoniously to the hotel refurbishment project. The marble-columned grand hall, roofed in with multicolored glass, leads to a vast and exquisitely decorated dining room. On the other side is the bar. The abundance of vegetation and modern vases provides a contemporary and luxurious ambiance.
Managed until the 1960s by the Agid family (a famous family of Polish hoteliers), the hotel then passed through a succession of owners, until the Boscolo Group took upon itself the task of restoring it to its former splendor, initially known as the Atlantic hotel.
The hotel, destined to become a point of reference for luxury accommodation in Nice, features a sumptuous historical heritage that blends seamlessly with contemporary design solutions.
