Le Dome has rare untouched features with high ceilings, wooden beams, traditional Niçoise red tommasse floor and the pièce de résistance – a ceiling fresco. The building is authentically Niçoise and was a 17th century palace and this floor was where royalty stayed. History is cleverly combined with stylish, contemporary and replica cream, grey and aqua furnishings and every modern convenience you could wish for. A rare treat for discerning travellers who love staying in unique, authentic and historic environments, modernised for comfort and oozing with class. Le Dome is set in a fabulous central location in the heart of the Old Town and a couple of minutes walk to the promenade, beach and lively Cours Saleya market place.
