My wife and young daughter stayed for a long weekend in April 2009, along with my wife's parents, at Le Grimaldi, just a 5-10 minute walk straight in-land from the beach and the Promenade des Anglais.
The hotel's interior is very clean and quaint. The lift was small but worked flawlessly. Our room and bathroom were of fairly large dimensions by continental standards. The bathroom had a large tub/shower and was outfitted with tasteful marble tile. The third floor room had large French doors that opened to a cement balustrade that overlooked the street -- at night, street noise was not a problem. The beds were firm and comfortable, and the hotel provided a child's travel bed at no cost. My wife's parent's room was even larger than ours, with a sofa to boot. Although the hotel probably falls in the middle of the price range for 4-stars in the area, we took advantage of an offer to have a fourth night for free, which made the per-night cost of the hotel (essentially, four nights for the price of three) downright cheap in comparison to many others in the same category and area.
Although breakfast was not included in the price of the room, the hotel offered a similar deal on the price of breakfast --- if one ate breakfast there for each of the four days we were there and thereby took advantage of the cheaper price, the costs were comparable for what one would find at cafe/bars in the area (we know this because we looked around before settling on breakfast in the hotel). As for the breakfast offered, it was plentiful and diverse -- they offered boiled or scrambled eggs, cereals, various breads and croissants, fresh and dried fruit, juices, cheese and meats, yogurts, and of course coffee and teas.
Of particular note was the attitude of the staff -- extremely helpful, very friendly, and thoughtful throughout. We would definitely stay at this hotel again, no questions asked...although we'd aim for 3+ nights.
