We have visited Nice on more than 20 occasions in the last 10 years and have spent all but 5 at Le Grimaldi. Our recent visit in early April confirmed yet again why we continue to do so. First and foremost we find the staff go out of their way to be as welcoming and as helpful as possible. This was typified by the way they assisted us during the volcanic ash episode a few years ago to get home as painlessly as possible. Anne Duranton has been there all this time and she treats us like long lost friends every time we visit and ensures everything is in order for our stay. David and Anais also deserve special mention. We usually stay in one of the 2 Junior Suites, the one overlooking Rue Grimaldi being our favourite as it has a balcony. The breakfast meets our needs perfectly, offering a good choice and as much, or as little, as you want. The location of Le Grimaldi is something else we like as it is situated half way between the station and the main bus stops, making it easy for travel along the Cote D'Azur. It is also a short walk to the Promenade Des Anglais and the shops and there are numerous restaurants within easy walking distance. We are looking forward to our next visit already!

Room Tip: If you can stretch to a Junior Suite it is well worth it.

Myself and my wife spent 4 nights over the June Bank Holiday in this lovely, superbly located small hotel. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and offered a very pleasant glass of champagne on arrival. On our first night. a baby in the next room we could hear a baby crying intermittently into the early hours. We explained the situation at reception the following morning and without hesitation were upgraded to a very fine room overlooking a beautiful old church. The matter was dealt with calmly and quietly by Helene. In our opinion, this represents customer service at it's best and deserves to be acknowledged. Well done!

Room Tip: The Le Sejour Cafe just door from Le Grimaldi offers amazing food and well worth a visit. Wise to book before-hand.

It was a pleasure to find such incredibly nice and friendly staff in France! Always a smile, nothing was a problem. Their staff went out of their way to help us with the shipment of three huge boxes. Even let us occupy their bar for some repacking. Thank you for this Le Grimaldi staff!!!!
Would always stay there again. Great location too. Quiet and clean.
Don't expect a huge breakfast.

We returned to Le Grimaldi for another wonderful week in March, 2014. We prefer a superior room on Rue Maccarani as it is quieter than Rue Grimaldi. The superior room has exposure on the street and courtyard, includes a day bed, large bath with separate tub and shower, as well as separate toilet room. The concierge staff has always been helpful and is now under the leadership of a very capable new directrice, Helene Rougevin-Baville. The hotel is a short walk to the "pieton", Rue Messena, Promenade des Anglais, and Av. Jean Medecin. Rates are very reasonable at this time of year and specials include breakfast and other amenities. We have stayed at many of the larger hotels along the sea and prefer the personal attention provided at this boutique hotel.

It's 3am and I've been awoken at least 5 times from people yelling or engines revving on the street below. Last night the garbage truck came by at 1am!? The bed is hard and the shower is a little half glassed in thing that you can't really move around in. Yes, there is A/C and hot water. Our room does have a mini fridge and wifi. The breakfast is typical European but nice. 3 nights for $633?!? No... I'll be trying somewhere else next time.

I hope, however, you leave us the opportunity to demonstrate our professionalism.
