“A Perfect Place to Stay in Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

I spent 2 nights in this hotel with my family for a short trip to Nice. The lasting impression of this hotel, as so many have touched on, is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and immediately relaxed from our journey. I have a 3 year old child, who the staff were very welcoming and generous towards. During our stay all our (many!) requests for information were dealt with politely and attentively. The ambience of the hotel is lovely and for a city hotel the rooms are large. The hotel is very well located. I would certainly return to this hotel if we are in Nice again and would highly recommend it.

This hotel is a lovely hotel well located in Nice. I took my mum to Nice for 6 nights, and all of the staff in this hotel were really friendly and helpful with directions and what ever questions we had about local attractions.

The breakfast in the morning was good, lots of croissants, fruit, yoghurt, cheese, ham and bread, boiled eggs, lovely coffee and juice

Rooms were bigger than I expected, had everything you needed, and just 5 minutes walk from the main town, and 10 minutes from the Beach.

You can book to use the private beach Ruhl Plage, but this is 23Euros per day, but its better than laying on the large pebbles, plus you do need footwear to swim in the sea, as the pebbles are painful on the feet.

Perfect location to see Nice, Cannes, Monte Carlo - will definately return and would be happy to stay at the hotel again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor, the lift is small only fit for 2 persons, so if you don't like lifts...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights. In a nutshell, customer service excellent, staff very polite and attentive. Location - centrally located between shopping district, old town and the promenade. All walking distance. Will stay here again the next time I visit Nice.

Previous reviewers have said it all. Excellent location, nice rooms, good breakfast and fantastically helpful staff make this unmistakeably French hotel an ideal choice. We stayed for 3 nights and would have liked to stay longer.

This hotel was brilliant in terms of location, cleanliness and staff. Especially Jeremy at the front desk (what was his surname?!) who was very lovely. Very nice breakfast with fresh baguettes and croissants everyday. Very good stay would defiantly come back.

This hotel is in a quiet area but only a few minutes walk away from loads of lovely restaurants and shops. The one thing that stood out for me was how polite and helpful the staff were - all of them spoke English which helped (but were happy to help with our broken French!) and we really appreciated everything they did for us. Rooms were a good size and breakfast was just what you want.

When we came to leave though, we had booked a shuttle (through the hotel) which was meant to come at 3.30pm. When it got to 3.45pm and the shuttle hadn't arrived, we asked the man (Alain I believe his name was) where it was and before I could even finish my question he said '10 minutes'. This was nothing like the service we had received the rest of the week and were shocked. When 10 minutes past I asked again and he reluctantly picked up the phone to check; as he went to call a shuttle turned up and he said 'here it is' so we got out suitcases (we were also carrying a bike in a bag which was big) and got in. Half way to the airport and already late the driver got a call to say he had picked up the wrong people and the hotel were asking him to come back!! Thankfully he carried on to the airport due to the fact we had the big bags with us.

I would highly recommend this hotel for families and young couples looking to enjoy Nice, even though leaving the hotel did not go well for us.

Spent 4 days in Nice and stayed at the Grimaldi hotel the whole time. Our room was located on the "quiet side" of the hotel...and it was blissfully quiet. Although in the thick of the city and only blocks from the infamous Promenade des Anglais, it was peaceful. The hotel has 2 elevators. Both are very small, which is typical in Europe. The rooms have U.S.-style showers (loved them!). The continental breakfast was fantastic and super stocked with fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee, teas, juice, french bread and croissants. Oh, and hard boiled eggs you personally cook to your soft/hard satisfaction. The room and breakfast were fully bested by the service of the those at the reception desk. Almost everyone spoke English and they were exceptional at checking us in and out. In addition, they were helpful when I, and a group of other U.S. travelers, were concerned about our travel arrangements in light of a scheduled air traffic controllers strike expected to begin the day of our flights out of France. Fully knowledgable about strikes in France, experts at alternative travel options, and clearly educated about calming panicky customers, the staff helped us concentrate on our vacation rather than worry about the strike and its impact on our trip. In the end, the strike didn't affect us, but if it had, we had plan B and C ready to execute, thanks to the Grimaldi Hotel staff. Special thanks to the head manager, whose name escapes me right now -- she was awesome and offered perfect advice about the strike and researched other travel arrangements for us; and to Lisa, the evening reception clerk originally from Russia, but who also spoke French and English. She was our go-to person every evening and she couldn't have been more professional or helpful. She is a credit to this wonderful little hotel!

Room Tip: There's also free wifi and cable TV.
