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... More

The rooms were a little small but they were clean, well serviced and the bathroom was just perfect. The staff were excellent, had breakfast a few mornings - not great value but good selection. The location is great, lots of nice restaurants around and great shops. Got a Christmas shopping package so the price was very good.

We stayed at Le Grimaldi in April 2009 (4 nights, during Orthodox Easter) and we loved it! First of all, the hotel is really well located, close to the promenade, the Old Town, the Market and the Massena Square. Also, it's close (walking distance) to the main train station (one can catch a train to Grasse, Cannes, Eze etc) and... More

When thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Le Grimaldi. On arrival our room wasn't ready but the receptionist recommended to walk to the flower market and we spent the whole morning in old Nice. Had lunch in a small family run restaurant called Acchiardo. To be recommended! Our room - no. 135 - was bright, nicely decorated, of a reasonable size... More

I was very disappointed with Le Grimaldi. It is definetely not a 4 star hotel and not a good value for the money. The room is very basic and the carpeting is old. The front desk is seldom willing to help. Besides, everything is extra: wifi (only in the lobby and very expensive), breakfast at 15 euros per person. They... More

I agree with the other reports - great location - very efficient and helpful staff; but I am not sure the hotel provided us with the stay we wanted for the price. Fair enough Nice and the South of France are expensive so the hotel was better value than the larger hotels - and is it is a B &... More

We stayed in Le Grimaldi in Nice during the Mardi Gras festival in February. Great hotel as a base to enjoy Nice and the surrounding area. We stayed in a superior room on the 5th floor.

“There's a lovely church on Rue Maccarani - if you can get a room on this side then I suspect it's quieter.”
