We stayed for 5 nights in October 2012. The weather was gorgeous and it was our first time in Nice so appreciated not being in the loudest part near all the bars and restaurants. The area is mixed in terms of small hotels like this one, restaurants (the one next door is fantastic, scary proprietor but lovely local food) and shops as well as residential property. You are 15-20 minutes from Nice Ville station so handy for trips to Monaco (not just glam but so clean, check out the local brewery), Cannes (a bit meh) and Grasse (don't do the perfume museum, do sit in a square and have lunch). We booked with BA so not sure whether this was why we seemed to have been given quite a nice room with balcony overlooking the internal courtyard but appreciated the seating area and yellow decor and free wine on our second night. We ate lots of wine and cheese from the local supermarket and spent too much time in Wayne's bar but it was good to come home to the Grimaldi.
Only gripe: breakfast sometimes got packed and there were no tables and the older French lady we waited behind did not comprend le queueing so not good. Staff were great though and breakfast plentiful.
