Hôtel Le Grimaldi by Happyculture

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great Hotel in a convenient location for almost anything. Very friendly staff especially Florine who went out of their way to accommodate me. Adequately big rooms which were also very clean. Free Ice cream and coffee

The reception staff were very welcoming - this is the first thing one notices in a hotel. The decor in our room was modern, yet comfortable. Very clean, and the whole setup - quirky lift, breakfast facilities, the building itself, and the free ice-cream and coffee - added to a very pleasant stay. The hotel is very close to all the amenities, and is only a short walk to the beach. Unlike some of the other reviewers, we found the hotel quiet enough during the night. The reason why I did not give a 5 star rating is that the twin beds in our room was quite narrow, although it is very comfortable otherwise. I would happily stay in Hotel Grimaldi again.

Very clean room with a nice bathroom. Perfect location to explore the city, and the beach with some good restaurants nearby and an easy walk from the train station. The hotel is within walking distance to the old town and Promenade des Anglais. Very good base for exploring Nice. Espresso available all day at reception, ice cream bar from 2pm to 7pm. Simple breakfast with outstanding croissants! We didn’t like the Breakfast area as it was crowded. Lovely and helpful staff. The off-season price is very reasonable, but little pricy in summer.

The Hotel is at a great location. Spacious rooms and quirky furniture. The only reason why I dint give a five star review is because we could hear the people staying in the adjoining room. It was like the rooms are separated by a curtain and not a wall . Which was really annoying as we couldn't get a good night sleep. However over all the stay was good, the staff were really helpful and polite. I would definitely stay there again plus they have this Happy Culture concept going, which is a good touch and something different.

Great hotel with helpful, friendly staff. Hotel Le Grimaldi is Ideally positioned for visiting the main areas of Nice. The added bonus was there are excellent restaurants within a short distance of the hotel.

I had a wonderful stay at Le Grimaldi. Room was cosy with beautiful view I could wish. Concept I have never seen in other hotels- free Nespresso and Go Green, if you skip room service you get free glass of shampagne! Small things make big difference!

We had such a pleasant stay at this hotel. Location was perfect, staff was super friendly and helpful. Room was clean and the balcony was nice extra. Breakfast was good and there was plenty of choice.

Nothing not to love about this place We’ve stayed 5-6 times now and love it. Great service, real attention to detail and everything done as promised. Booked us in to our favourite restaurant, car to airport, even gave us the room we requested. Couldn’t recommend more highly.

Good location and helpful staff. Room was really big and clean. Only problem was with breakfast - our friends got discount (50 %) but, we did not. We reserved rooms at the same time trough

It is well located, has very friendly staff and nice rooms. Breakfast however is a battle to get at meagre food. The problem is simply how they have organised the limited space. You have to step over one another’s tables to get at the food and the tables are jammed in with maids trolleys moving through the same area. The hot water for tea is tepid. The single toaster is as cheap as you could buy, takes forever and is plugged in with a dangerously positioned extension lead. I could go on.... They simply need to put seating in one area and food at the entrance by the kitchen. There is so much about breakfast that is annoying that we avoided it in the end. The management need to look into this - maybe move the huge wardrobe in the entrance and replace that area with a long bench to serve the food. Will not be coming to this hotel again. Shame really as it has a lot of potential
