Summer is approaching, and Nice is lighting up under the warm Mediterranean sun! If you're planning a vacation in Nice and wondering what would be a perfect, representative day in the city, let Hotel Khla's recommendations guide you to a memorable stay on the Côte d'Azur.


MORNING - The perfect morning in Nice

The perfect way to start your day is to wake up in one of Hotel Khla's comfortable rooms. Enjoy a delicious breakfast in our air-conditioned breakfast room, ideal for those hot summer days. Our breakfast buffet offers a variety of sweet and savory delights to satisfy every craving. Don't forget to try our freshly squeezed orange juice, a must for a good start to the day.

Once your stomach is full, you're ready to set off and discover Nice! Hôtel Khla is ideally located in the heart of the city, giving you easy access to must-see attractions such as the Promenade des Anglais, Vieux-Nice, Place Masséna, museums, stores and restaurants. Thanks to the tramway, you can move around the city with ease.

Start by heading to Nice's old town and exploring the famous Cours Saleya. Here you'll discover the flower market, with its scents and vibrant colors. The Cours Saleya is particularly lively in the mornings and perfectly reflects Nice life. Let yourself be tempted by local specialties, meet craftspeople and find ideas for souvenirs to bring back from your stay in Nice. Then stroll through the picturesque streets of Vieux-Nice and soak up its authentic atmosphere. Around every corner, you'll find charming little squares and stores to explore.

Hotel Khla tip: For a delicious socca, head to Theresa's, a veritable institution in the heart of Nice's old town. This restaurant is renowned for its Nice specialties, in particular the famous socca cooked over a wood fire. You can also take advantage of their market stall to savor this specialty while exploring the old town.

MIDI - A delicious lunch in Nice

For lunch, we recommend that you take advantage of the exceptional setting by heading for the Promenade des Anglais. Treat yourself to a stroll along the seafront, following the coastline to Le Galet restaurant. Situated right on the beach, facing the Mediterranean, enjoy a delicious meal in the sunshine. The chef offers Italian cuisine, with choices ranging from pizza and pasta to beef tartare and fresh fish. Your glass of white wine is already waiting for you, bathed in sunshine!

AFTERNOON - A relaxing moment on the Promenade des Anglais

After this delicious meal, it's time to digest! For this, we recommend one of the private beaches along the Promenade des Anglais. Of course, you can choose to stay on the private beach of Le Galet restaurant, but if you'd like a change, you're spoilt for choice among the good addresses recommended by Hôtel Khla.

Here are some of the best private beach addresses in Nice:

  • Le Castel Plage : Nestled at the foot of Nice castle, at the end of the Promenade near the old town, this private beach offers magnificent views across the Baie des Anges.
  • La Vela : Perfect for families on vacation with children, this private beach offers a Kids Club until 3 p.m., so parents can relax with peace of mind.


After this moment of relaxation, it's time for a snack! We suggest a refreshing ice cream, a treat for young and old alike! In Nice, there are many good ice cream shops, but among the best are Neron Glacier and the famous Fenocchio if you want to head back to the old town. Another option on boulevard Gambetta, Peccati di Gola also offers delicious artisanal ice creams!

SOIR - An evening of many options in Nice

You can then redirect yourself to the comfort of your room at Hotel Khla to relax and get ready to go out. For the evening, we offer 3 very different alternatives:

  1. The festive evening: We recommend a dinner in a lively restaurant, combining good food and music. Head to ICO restaurant, just an 8-minute walk from Hotel Khla. This festive restaurant offers a unique experience in Nice. On the first floor, enjoy a fusion of South American cuisine. To extend the evening, head upstairs and discover the cocktail club with its DJ sets. An unmissable option for a feast and party in Nice!
  2. Picnic/sunset evening: For a more peaceful evening, there's nothing like a picnic in front of the Nice sunset. There are plenty of spots to choose from: we recommend Cap de Nice, with its rocky outcrops right in the water, or Mont Boron if you have a car. For a bite to eat, opt for a delicious Niçoise takeaway speciality like a Pan Bagnat from Lou Balico.
  3. Romantic evenings: For the ultimate in romance, dine on one of Nice's rooftops. We recommend Farago On the Roof, with its superb view of the Promenade des Anglais. The Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine is delicious, and the evening entertainment is provided by local artists.

By following these tips, your summer day in Nice promises to be a memorable one. From waking up in a room at the Hotel Khla, to tasting local specialities, taking picturesque walks and relaxing on the beach, we've thought of everything so that you can make the most of the Côte d'Azur. Enjoy every moment and let yourself be seduced by the city's unique charm during your stay in Nice.
