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.
