Mercure Nice Centre Grimaldi

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A nice hotel in a splendid building in the centre of Nice close to a pedestrianised area with a number of restaurants. Room was good if a little small with a good bathroom and OK shower. Bar was a little odd in that the reception staff served from a small cabinet (no draft beers, just bottles) and breakfast was very good. Nice friendly service from the staff.

We had 6 nights here and it was ok to good. The hotel is very central with many restaurants and the beach nearby. The room was adequate but the bed was very firm and we could hear next door's tv on into the small hours. There is a fridge and safe in the room and the shower is heavenly. There was a large clown motiff on the wall above the bed so if you are scared of clowns, this is not for you. The rooftop terrace was relaxing but too cold in winter for long sessions. Breakfast is continental or cooked and self serve with a decent choice of options. The staff are very nice and helpful with a special mention to Julien and Mihaela.

Good location, polite staff. Poor quality of food for breakfasts. Small,uncomfortable room with lots of things requiring renovation and fixing. Bed taste interior decor. Sorry for not recommending this hotel.

Stayed fro five nights on a city break. As Accor members we were able to check in online and when we arrived very early our room was ready. We had a Privilege room, which although small had a huge bed, plenty of room to put things and a west facing balcony. Soundproofing in the hotel was good, the room was well stocked, as was the shower room, the bed very large with a choice of pillows. The staff were all very helpful and cheerful. The hotel is located very close to the bus network, the Promenade Des Anglais and the city centre. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops very near to the hotel. There is a roof terrace which is ideal for a spot of sunbathing. All-in-all a good place to stay and it is very good value

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights in Oct 2017. We were given a Privilege room on the 6th floor which was plenty big enough for the 2 of us. Check-in was quick and efficient, staff very pleasant, hotel was clean and modern and the location was perfect. There is a supermarket next door to the hotel and shops, cafes and restaurants all within a couple of minutes walk. It was a great hotel for a short break, but if I could change one thing.....I'd get rid of the scary clowns painted on the walls!!!

My friend and I stayed here the last two weeks of September 2017. The hotel has everything one might want - clean, modern rooms. Excellent WiFi connectivity. A breakfast buffet that is second to none with a broad variety of items from which to choose at a reasonable additional cost. A rooftop terrace for sunning during the day or have a cocktail in the evening. The location, just north of the Zone Piétonne is perfect amidst shops and cafés. One is truly in Nice and not simply in Touristland. What really sets the hotel apart, though, is the staff - accommodating, professional, pleasant. Mihaela in Reception and Julien the breakfast server are simply exceptional.

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.
