In the past we have liked to stay at the Grimaldi because of its location, character - it is not an anonymous chain hotel and the day staff are particularly helpful. However, having stayed in a 'superior' room for short weekend break, the only thing that could be classed as superior was the room's dimensions. Though clean it all seemed... More

I've been around the world in many places, but Le Grimaldi is the worst hotel I've managed to encounter. It could be OK for free, POOR for 50 EUR per night, but definitely not a 4-star hotel. Apart from the overall looks not fitting the pictures from the website, the hotel is right in the middle of the outskirts of... More

Found the Grimaldi via internet and called to make reservation. Based on experience it is suggested not to use the on-line booking services. Calling directly got us better rates and direct conversation. The phone calls were pleasant and to the point with good assistance on a busy weekend. The location is ideal for center city activities of Nice. Finding the... More

We spent 4 nights in Nice at Le Grimaldi, booked through Tripadvisor. It's a short walk from all the key sights in Nice - Place Massena, Promenade Des Anglais, Vieux Nice, Train Station etc. The room is small and dated, but very comfortable. The toilet was very small but had a lock, which was nice. The bathroom had a bathtub... More

We have just spent 6 days in Nice staying at Le Grimaldi and we really enjoyed our stay. Hotel is situated midway between Train Station (Gare Ville) and Promenade Anglais - about 8-10 mins easy walk to either. Also handy for a supermarket, restaurants, shops and trams. Our superior room was spacious, kettle provided though coffee/milk not always replenished. Bed... More

We again enjoyed our stay at Le Grimaldi, our 8th. Service provided throughout the week by Anais and Carol was excellent. Breakfast included a variety of foods appealing to every taste.

Location is the best thing going for this hotel. Set in a quiet pretty street, just a short walk from the seafront. That was the highlight of our experience at this hotel rated 4 star but far from this. Scaffolding on the entire building next door was an unavoidable shame but at least not too noisy. We stayed three nights... More

We arrived at Nice airport and got a taxi to the hotel, which took about 10 minutes. Very close to the railway station, 5minutes walk. Lovely friendly hotel, with a great central location. The owners were very helpful, recommending a great bistro for dinner. The rooms, basic but very clean and tidy, with plenty of hot water, although the shower... More

This hotel is 7-8 minutes walk from the station (1/2 hr by bus 99 direct from airport - €6) and 5 minutes walk from the sea front & lots of restaurants.
