Hotel Grille Campanile Nice Airport
Situated across the road from the control tower and old Air Littoral commuter aprons this hotel is in an excellent location for viewing the movements at this busy airport. Ideal for spotting from the room.
Location: *** Excellent. Free airport shuttle to the terminals which are only 56 minutes away.
Spotting: *** Ask for a high level room overlooking the runways (503/5/7 or 509 or 511 are highly recommended. From here most of the jet airliners can be read off although the odd commuter aircraft may turn off early and be missed.
Photos: ** A 200-400 lens will get you pictures of 737′s and above using the taxiway across the road although ground clutter is at times a problem.
Value: *** Rooms start from a typical price of just £40. A small supplement is charged if breakfast is required.
