“Great accommodations in Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

Outstanding boutique hotel in the heart of Nice. Excellent staff, very clean rooms. Short walk to the Promenade, Old Nice and shopping.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms on the west side entrance. Highly recommend a superior room.

This is a small hotel located close to the pedestrianised area of the town and a short walk from many amenities. The rooms are quirkily decorated and are clean and well looked after, with good sound insulation. The air conditioning was a boon. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the usual buffet, but replenished often. The only minus for us was a number of American tourists who decided to make themselves into a group and so breakfast time was noisy as they compared notes across the room - however, this only lasted for half our stay!

Room Tip: We have always had a good room, whenever we have stayed

We stayed in Room 55 at Le Grimaldi. The hotel was charming and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean however the decor was a bit outdated. Our room only had a shower which was a bit of a let down as I would have preferred both a bath and a shower. However the bathroom was clean and tidy so living without a bath was fine.

The location of the hotel is great. Only a few minutes walk from the restaurants and bars in the new town and a five minute walk to the beach. It is also walking distance from the train station to Monaco therefore perfect for days spend touring Nice or if you wanted to explore the area.

Breakfast again was great with the freshest pastries I had eaten in a very long time.

Overall I would recommend the hotel an I am more than likely going to stay in the hotel again.

Me and my family stayed here for a week and it was an enjoyable experience. It's about 10 minutes walk to the train station and probably less to get to the sea front, so the location is perfect. The rooms were very pretty and well stocked with L'Occitane products which were replenished often. Air conditioning was much needed as we went to Nice in June - July when often got quite humid in the evening! Finally, I must stress how great the staff are. They will sort out anything you want, will recommend restaurants, will give you information on trains and buses etc. Just ask them anything!

I only have two problems: the cleaning and the breakfast. The breakfast is alright, but you have to pay for it and it's fairly small and nothing too outstanding although having breakfast here has introduced me to Darjeeling tea! If it was included, it would be better. With the cleaning staff (who are really lovely by the way, nothing against them) I sometimes found they didn't hoover up properly and so bits were left on my carpet in parts around my bed. It gave me the impression that they only hoover around larger areas near the door, or near the bathroom. I mentioned before about the bathroom products being replenished but my mum and dad found that in their room, their tray with tea bags/sugar/milk on it wasn't being filled up and they had to ask downstairs.

Apart from those two minor blips, I would highly recommend this hotel. Also the artwork on the walls is fabulous!

Stayed here at the beginning and end of two weeks in Provence. We found the best thing about this hotel was its location - walking distance (just) to the station and close to the seafront. Internet was good also. I thought the room rate was competative. Having said all that it was still pretty average I think.

This is a typically french hotel in design, with lovely rooms & parisian balcony a few streets back from the promanade in a quiet area, but within minutes walk to the beach front, shops, bars restaurants and the old town, etc, the train station is within 10 mins walking distance. breakfast is continental and adequate. Popular with british, americans and french.

Room Tip: ask for a room with church view.

Had a lovely few days in a Superior Room. Large and airy and the A/C worked well.
The Internet was well above average as was the breakfast.
Staff very helpful and friendly.
Such a pleasant change from the bland chain hotels.
Very quiet and 5 minutes from the beach.
Would definitely stay again.
Very clean and excellent L'Occitane toiletries. Generously replenished each day.
