“Good value with excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

I chose this hotel for my sixth visit in Nice based on very good previous experiences in another Mercure hotel and the unbeatable location. It's situated within a walking distance from Promenade des Anglais, Place Massena, Old Town, shopping street Jean Medecin and even the railway station. Pedestrian street Rue Massena with plenty of restaurants is just a few steps away but the hotel is located on a quiet street so there wasn't any street noise disturbing our sleep (even when our room was on the 2nd floor right above the entrance).

The reception staff were very welcoming and effective and my emailed request for a twin room was fulfilled. As mentioned here by previous reviewers, the rooms are quite small but they have all the amenities needed. The room had been quite recently refurbished so small fridge, safe and large tv were new and beds were comfortable. Bathroom was tiny but the shower was very nice with a pretty oval-shaped window letting daylight in and a rainfall-type function. Air conditioning was efficient and easy to adjust, free wi-fi seemed to work fine.

We had breakfast included in our deal and I was happy to find the buffet breakfast as good as in other Mercure hotel I've stayed in. The food was nicely presented and the selection of breads and pastries impressive. We went there quite early every morning around 8-8.30 am and had no problem finding a table or having to wait for refilling.

Compared to Mercure Nice Promenade des Anglais, this hotel is closer to the shopping streets and restaurants and you can probably get a better deal here but rooms are smaller and views are not that impressive. I would be happy to return to Mercure Grimaldi for my next visit and maybe take better advantage of the cosy relaxation/sunbathing area on the top of the building.

We have stayed many times before and were delighted to be given a brand new room, thanks to the excellent service of Alicia.The hotel was, as always everything that we wanted and we stayed on the first floor. It will be great when they have finally redesigned the ground floor at the end of the year.

Don't you just hate it?

We stayed in a fairly small double room. Not a problem, and we liked the way the hotel provided a kettle, tea and coffee and an empty fridge so we could keep some milk chilled. However the bathroom was badly thought-out. There was no proper towel-rail, just some small wire shelves and a sign that said you should put your towels on the shelves if you wanted to reuse them and therefore save the planet. But if you put them on the shelves they will still be wet the next day, so I hung mine from the hook on the wall by the door. Unfortunately the hotel has chose to fix the holder for the toilet brush directly below the hooks, so when the towel fell off the hook, that's where it landed. It's just a stupid layout and of course I had to have a fresh towel as a result, so now the planet will die and it's all the fault of Mercure's interior design team!

Seriously, though, it's not a bad hotel. It's in a good location and there's a neat roof terrace where you can sunbathe. Breakfast was fine, with some organic products and some nice cheeses. The decor is fresh and modern, but the inept bathroom design spoiled the experience for me.

Hi, I have just returned from a 10 day stay in this hotel and found the staff all to be very friendly. most could speak English and those who could not still tried hard.

The room was small but very comfortable and had everything you could need and had been newly decorated with a clown above the bed but I found that quite nice.

The breakfast was good form me and I understand that area is going to be done up later this year. The sun terrace was a good place to relax but a bit more shade would be welcome.
I would come back to the hotel again and would recommend it to others.

I stayed here for a week with my boyfriend. As a young couple we found the hotel was in a great location, central to many places with the promenade de anglais and the Old Town only 5 minuets away by foot. The train station, which is great for access to Monaco, Cannes ect is also easy to get to taking around a 10 minuet walk. The hotel was very clean and has been recently renovated. We booked a standard double room which although small was comfortable and had everything you needed. There hotel has a private roof terrace which is a nice relaxing place to sit where you can take a bottle of wine and nibbles with you and be sure for no one to bother you. Over all the hotel and staff where great.
