Forget about AirBnB and treat yourself to a real VIP break at a 4* hotel. Choosing the right hotel is vital to the success of your all-girls holiday. Choose a hotel in central Nice so you can get around everywhere on foot and not waste time on transport. The Best Western Plus Hotel Masséna Nice's prime location makes it the perfect choice under a minute from the best shops, 5 minutes from the beaches and Vieux-Nice.

Triple and adjoining rooms at our 4* hotel are the most popular for girly getaways. All our rooms have premium bed linen, a bathroom with a bath or shower, free Wi-Fi, desk, air-conditioning, safe, flat-screen TV and welcome tray (kettle, coffee, tea and herbal tea).

Ask our team to help surprise your friends with something special in their room on arrival for a hen party or birthday. Here are a few ideas to inspire you: helium balloons, bottle of Champagne, bouquet of flowers, sweets etc. Contact us to share your craziest ideas!

Wake up to the aroma of hot croissants tickling your nose and follow it downstairs to a large sweet and savoury breakfast buffet. The night before, ask our staff to book a large table so you can eat together. Or the second option is to be a lounge lizard, order your breakfast in bed and spend quality time with the girls, just dial 9!

Trip ideas for girly weekends in Nice

Let your hair down with the girls and go wild as you explore Nice.
Spend 1.5 hrs on the open-top Le Grand Tour red bus around the biggest attractions in Nice and Villefranche-sur-Mer.  16 stops are scheduled on the Grand Tour where you can get on and off as much as you like. Buy your 1 or 2 day pass to visit sites including the Promenade des Anglais, Place Masséna, Place Garibaldi, Nice Port and Citadelle de Villefranche-sur-Mer etc.

Go back to your childhood on board the Nice little train! The little train sets off from the Promenade des Anglais on a guided 45 minute tour in 8 languages. It's silent, runs on electricity and is eco-friendly making it the best form of transport to visit Nice and do your bit for the environment whilst you have fun.

If you're feeling sporty and adventurous, head to the Nikaïa Watersport centre, a 5 minute walk from the Best Western Plus Hôtel Masséna Nice. Choose from: parasailing, flyboarding, waterskiing and tubing. Thrills and good times guaranteed!

Capture these magical moments with a professional photo shoot on the Promenade des Anglais. A go-to for unforgettable memories to bring home from your girls' holiday.
