Boscolo Hotel Exedra Nizza Review

The top-notch features of this Belle Époque extravaganza—Louis Quinze armchairs, minimal mod tables, soaring skylights (including a redo of one originally fashioned by Gustave Eiffel), acres of teakwood walls, 1950s kidney-shape sofas, and some of the biggest black-and-white Murano chandeliers in the world—make this a supermodel of a hotel. The lobby feels a bit other-worldly—think the white-on-white, Rococo-ed rooms at the end of Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. Guest rooms, too, have a white-on-white color scheme, in addition to cascading, diamondlike ceiling lights, sculpted rose door handles, and the very latest in push-button luxury. The hotel's Italian restaurant can be hit and miss but has a great terrace, and the basement contains one of the most striking spas around (there are even plasma TVs in the saunas, though you don't get to pick the channel).
