“A home away from home”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Sadly, this vacation turned out not what we hoped for, since my better half became sick. The staff of the hotel was marvellous, offering not only care and sympathy, but also advice, referral and all sorts of help that were essential. Just for that we'll be ever grateful. Now to the hotel - convenient location, nice breakfast, comfortable bed, and Provencial charm. We enjoyed the view from our room (#45). Met there a charming British couple, who keep coming back to the hotel for years, because they enjoy the attentive attitude of the staff.

Room Tip: Try the side overlooking the church; it is quiet and sunny, with a pleasant view.

The rooms were fairly nice by French standards. Have learned to lower my standards for this region of Europe. However, the lady manager at reception was very friendly and helpful with suggestions as to where to visit. Location was pretty close to a lot of the places we wanted to visit and pretty close to Gare de ville nice, the main train station. Had a slight misunderstanding with the breakfast provided but it was all cleared up in a jiffy. Would definitely hang my jacket up here if we ever visit Nice again.

Not a bad a hotel, pretty standard for this level in France. It is ideally situated for the promenade, the train station and the shops. We were in Nice for the carnival and it made a good base. The hotel is made up of two buildings, connected by an out door walkway. We were in the second (or other) building; up a lift to the 3rd floor - each floor has 5 well sized rooms with a comfy bed and a pretty good bathroom. We had a great view of the church opposite. There is a small bar in the reception area with big soft sofa's to lounge in.

So why only an average rating? Firstly the breakfast; if the hotel is full there isn't enough seating and queues build up. We're in France, where bread is a passion and the fruit in the markets looks delicious - so why can't hotels buy this stuff and provide a good breakfast? But the big disappointment - having to squeeze past smoking hotel staff in the doorway would prevent me ever returning.

This was the third time we stayed in Le Grimaldi and I'm sure we will be back! The hotel has great location, beautiful rooms, friendly staff and the prices are very reasonable especially off-season which is when I prefer to visit Nice as it is less busy. We had a superior room facing the catherdral with a little balcony. The room was really spacious and fresh and there was even a small walk-in wardrobe. And the bathroom was huge! Also I really enjoyed the breakfast which was really French with fresh baguette and super delicious little croissants, pain aux raisins and pain au chocolat not the mention really good coffee. So thank you Le Grimaldi and hope to see you soon again!

What a lovely hotel ! Friendly, helpful staff, good size, well equipped room with comfortable bed and plenty of hot water in the spacious bathroom.
A delicious breakfast with plenty of time for the 'early birds' or the 'late risers'.
We loved the quirky design of the hotel, it having been converted from two houses which are joined by a little bridge over a courtyard - so different from the usual formulaic 'long corridor' hotels.
Its location, being only 5 minutes' walk from the beach and the famous old town, is ideal to enjoy the tourist delights or to sample the 'real life' sides of this fabulous city.
If you're looking for something 'different' in Nice - this is the place !!
