Saint Paul Hotel
Port of Nice
The hotel is a 5-minute walk to the Port of Nice.

The Saint-Paul Hotel is a former monastery in a breath-taking location next to the port of Nice and overlooking the Mediterranean. The hotel has been recently renovated with luxury rooms and a panoramic restaurant terrasse for receptions and lunch.

The monastery was built in 1840 to train priests and was converted into a hotel in the 1900s. Guests can visit the renovated chapel or relax in the calm reading room of the hotel's library and gaze upon the Mediterranean waters.

The hotel has a restaurant terrasse for buffet-style breakfast as well as lunch during the conference. Guests can relax at the bar or take a drink out on the terrasse after a day at a conference.

We have a limited number of rooms reserved at the conference venue. You can book a room when registering for the conference.
