We had an enjoyable stay at the Mercure Nice Centre Grimaldi. Our room was spacious as we had the suite. We had super comfortable beds. The free drinks and toiletries were replenished every day. The room was quiet and cosy. We loved the free Canal+ tv pack that came with the room and the bathroom had a real bath and cosy dressing gowns. The breakfast food was tasty and well stocked. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The hotel is very central - 5 minute walk from the main shopping area. We will definitely return to this hotel! We also got free late check out which was nice. Thanks for a great stay!
The hotel is near to the center and the beach. Friendly staff, even when ringing at the door late in the night. The breakfast is rich and good quality. Orange juice is fresh. My room (219) was small, but big enough for a two days business trip for a single person. I recommand.
Ideally located for a five day break in Nice. Near to everything you need. The room was a little tight but I expect that in this type of building and in any event it was only a base to slewp in. Staff were very friendly and helpful so would stay here again.
We chose this hotel based on the reviews here, and are puzzled why they are generally so positive. First the good. The location is excellent. But then there are plenty of other hotels in the same area. Room. We had paid a £30 per night premium for a Privilege Room which I cannot possibly recommend. It was barely big enough to fit the bed and the bathroom was so small you had to shuffle with the door to get in and out while your knees knocked the wall from the toilet. The carnival decoration was certainly not to our taste (I can imagine it giving small children nightmares!) and the rest of the decor was dated (artex walls; old doors, handles etc). And as most other people have reported the a/c is completely ineffective. Thankfully it was only low 20s this weekend in Nice, I can’t imagine the discomfort in summer. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were hard as rocks. We asked at reception if they had anything softer but were told they were all the same. I’m not exaggerating that we both have cricks in our necks from these pillows. Bathroom. Tiny, as I said. And cheap looking. I read a review where management said it is not made of plastic but a hygienic long lasting material.well it looks like moulder plastic and it looks cheap. Also the shower didn’t drain. Poor maintenance. Service. We returned to the hotel at 0045h to find no one at reception. We and another couple stood on the street for 10 minutes ringing the bell until the night porter appeared. When I asked him (in French) where he had been he replied “I have other things to do.” No hint of an apology. The next morning I asked to speak with a manager to be told there was no manager on duty all weekend. The young man on reception proceeded to defend the rude attitude of the night porter, justifying his absence because he had to “take the bins out” (at 1am??). I gave up at this point. It didn’t ruin our weekend in beautiful Nice but do yourself a favour and find somewhere better (and more polite) to stay.
The hotel was in a good location and offered good parking facilities. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was upgraded as we are a member of the hotel group, so that was a nice surprise! The room was nice, bigger than other mercure hotels and had everything we needed. We would stay at this hotel again if we visited nice. A mention to the receptionist who gave us a map with a quick overview of where to go which was very nice of her.
Stayed for 4 nights. Standard room was a bit small for two people. Hotel is located on walkable distance from beach as well as from nice city center. Where you willl find lot of shopping stores and malls. Few Indian restaurants are available near to hitel. Staff was good knowing English language. WiFi was available at each room . Overall great experience.
I visited this hotel and we enjoyed our stay. I was here for work as part of a private flight crew and planned on staying for 4 nights. After a mechanical issue we were stuck and ended up staying 12 nights instead. The rooms: Our first 4 nights we were booked in a standard room. Now being used to American hotels, the standard room seemed pretty small but I understand that that can be pretty typical in this area for the price. The bed was pretty firm (which I prefer but some may not). And the pillows were pretty thin. Bathroom was pretty small as well. AC was always running and turned all the way down but didn't seem to pump out really cold air. It was only about 73 degrees during the day but still seemed a little stuffy in the room. Windows open real wide for an evening cool breeze but no screens so bugs could be an issue. It also had an electric tea kettle with assorted teas and instant coffee. that being said, I was comfortable and for the price it wasn't bad. After our plane broke down, we checked back in and were this time given a "privileged" room. This room was MUCH bigger and definitely more comfortable. Bigger bathroom with multiple grooming products and bigger shower. The bed was still firm but had a nice mattress pad, memory foam pillows, and more of them. It also had bath robes and slippers, and although I didn't use them it would be a nice touch for others. The mini fridge was also stocked with assorted sodas juice and waters, and a nespresso machine and pods. The AC was about the same as the other room but again not an issue with the cooler nighttime temperatures. After we had to extend our stay again, our company booked the cheaper standard room again and we were going to have to switch rooms, but the front desk allowed us to stay in the larger rooms for the cheaper price. That was a great way to round out our trip and we really appreciated it. Housekeeping was great and always had the room refreshed for me. They also respected the days that I left the do not disturb sign on. The location: The location here is perfect. Walking distance to anything and right in the center of town. Very touristy area with lots of cafes and shopping. While a lot of the restaurants close are very similar in offerings, a slightly longer walk leads to many other options. Train station, beach, old town, and light rail are all so close! The Staff: We were always greeted with enthusiasm and politeness. We don't speak a lick of french and while some staff spoke little English, we were always able to communicate. The front desk staff were great in giving us tips and advice and were always helpful. No complaints there! There is a great rooftop deck that was awesome for getting a tan during the day and perfect for a drink in the evening. While they shut the lights off at 11pm, they were always happy to turn them back on for us when we asked. The lobby features an area with bottles of wine for sale although you'd be better off buying at the market next door for more variety and cheaper prices. I did not use the breakfast at the hotel as it was not included in our rate but there were always plenty of people and it smelled great. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at the Mercure Nice Centre Grimaldi. Comfortable rooms, great staff, and amazing location. Would definitely stay here again on our nice trip to the Riviera.
Thank you Mercure Nice Central Gimaldi for upgrading our room to a junior suite for 50th birthday celebrations. Breakfast was explained fully on our first morning (sometimes you just don't know what to do first). Lovely clean, spacious and light room. The bed was quite firm (hard) or perhaps we are getting old, but we missed our deep foam topper! Very close to Nice amenities (lots of shoe shops in Nice!!) and restaurants. Would recommend this hotel.
Rooms although a bit small, are in a good central location. We had a terrace which was a useful to soak up some afternoon sun. Late September is nice and warm, we have had rain, evenings are cooler would need a jacket. Locals are dressed for winter, but summer type clothing is fine. Hotel clean and updated.
Very modern hotel. Room a great size with a walk in robe and good bathroom. Great location, 15 minute walk to the train station, 5 minute walk from the beach and 2 minute walk from the pedestrian promenade where many restaurants and shops are found. Bed comfortable. Kettle and coffee maker in room. Breakfast provided plenty of choices. Area like a kitchen but very user friendly. Air conditioning excellent. Also able to open window in room and bathroom. As we are walkers we could walk to most of the tourist attractions and walking along Promenade des Anglaise was pleasant. I would certainly stay there again and recommend it.
