Guest reviews for Hôtel Le Grimaldi by Happyculture

5 out of 5

Well located with an amazing staff.

Pros: Staff is phenomenal. Love the location.
Cons: Breakfast is perhaps a bit too expensive for what you get compared to some local bistros/cafes. No real kitchen so everything is brought in daily.
Location: Quiet location only 10-15 minutes walk to most of Nice's interesting sites. Neighborhood not inundated by tourists, almost residential.
I had a chance to take a last minute trip and didn't know where to go. I chose the French Riviera, it being warmer there than here in Chicagoland plus I'd never been to France but ahve wanted to go there for a long time. The hotel is only about 10 minutes at the most from the Sea, about 10 minutes from the main train station in Nice and is convenient to lots of restaurants (rue Massena, etc.), shopping (Galleries Lafayette and Nicetoile), parks and sightseeing in the old section of Nice. The room was a tiny bit shabby with chipped paint on most of the furniture and the decor a tad outdated but the room was large, comfortable and clean. The staff at Hotel Le Grimaldi (from the front desk/reception to the breakfast staff to the cheerful housekeepers) has to be about the best in all of Nice. Everyone was extremely helpful, very knowledgeable as far as places to visit, restaurants to go to, best and most direct streets to get where you want to go, train timetables -- my kudos can go on and on (thank you Carole, Louis, Anna and most especially Amelie). I stayed four nights and cannot wait to go back. Thanks to the wonderful, unpretentious staff and the terrific location I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to everyone.

was ok

Cons: Nothing close
Some rooms were renovated some were not. Was disappointed we did not get a renovated room because the other couple we traveled with did.
