At 1AM we were forced to leave our AirBNB in Old Town. We called several hotels nearby before getting a positive response from Mercure Grimaldi. Yes they had a room with 2 beds. We were warmly greeted by the night manager and happily retired to our comfortable beds. After sleeping in we enjoyed the very pleasant roof deck with wonderful views of the city. The hotel is an 11 minute walk to the beach and close to many upscale stores.
That is the hotel we stay at when we spend vacation time in Nice, and in the last several years, it feels like we have been to Nice every year. We love this hotel- the location is perfect, very close to the Old City, to the beach and the pedestrian areas. The rooms are small, but perfectly appointed, it is very clean, the staff is very pleasant and so is management with a Director who goes out of her way to make us feel welcome each time, the breakfast buffet is delicious, and more.... We highly recommend the Mercure Grimaldi- you will love it as we do....
Stayed here for 2 nights, got the spacious privilege room with a king size bed. Great location, a super market is below the hotel (although it can get noisy in the morning if staying on that side)close to a lot of food options and the shopping district. The Hotel Staff was very warm, kind and helpful( Alexandre Antoine and Mihciela at the front desk) were always ready to help. Overall a great experience.
We had a really great stay at this hotel. We had a Privilege room with king-size bed and highly recommend it. It was a good size and the walk in shower was GREAT - my 6"4' husband loved it, as most European showers can be a tight squeeze. It was clean, staff were nice and the hotel had some nice touches like the water dispenser flavoured with fruit in the foyer. You can ask for an iron/ ironing board and they'll be happy to oblige. The room did smell a little musty or something but it was fine. We walked to and from the train station with our luggage without any problem so it was super convenient. We initially thought we were comprising by staying further from the beach front but actually it's quite close by. A favourite memory was the morning ritual of dropping in for a croissant and hot chocolate at Chez Maître Pierre (2 mins away) and having this at a bench on the promenade. The hotel does offer breakfast but for us we prefered tasting the local offerings. Enjoyed a couple of great restaurants nearby. We would definitely stay here again.
Avoid the side of the hotel where you can see the Intermarch sign! I have stayed here 3 times since 2016 and have been happy with the hotel but this was appalling! Apparently these early morning deliveries used to happen at 4 am so the Hotel says this is an improvement! The receptionist said they can’t do any more because “this is France”.
Walking distance to everything...train station, old town, etc. Comfortable and clean rooms. Some front desk team members not very helpful but most were very nice and offered help when asked. Business or pleasure this hotel is a great choice.
Lets be honest a four star hotel standard is different in different countries, even cities. Rooms in this hotel were really tiny, amenities were almost non existing, apart from a soap bar and a gel dispenser in the shower. We asked for body lotion but it was not available. Beds were not very comfortable, too hard. Few days later we went to another 4 star hotel in Genova and it felt like a palace. On the bright side staff was friendly and hotel was quite central located.
We arrived earlier than check in time but a very pleasant receptionist let us book in early. Really appreciated that. Our room was on the small side but scrupulously clean+ adequate. Only complaint , as is the case with most Mercure hotels , the shower is hand held which makes it difficult to use. We were there for a week + the bed was changed frequently. We enjoyed a few sunny evenings on the lovely roof terrace. Very convenient for restaurants + promenade. The airport bus - no 98 - is only 5 minutes away. We chose not to have breakfast as we felt it was very over priced . The only negative - apart from the nice receptionist on arrival , we didn't find reception friendly or helpful. In fact on most occasions, particularly evenings, there was no one to be seen at the reception desk which I think could compromise security.
Friendly reception , modern rooms but small with not much room to move about. Compact but modern bathroom , pressure could have been better in the shower , shower gel provided but no shampoo or lotions. We loved the fact you could walk out to the seafront in under ten minutes and probably the same distance to the old town. It was an easy walk from the the train station too. Restaurants are all around with a handy supermarket next door to the hotel. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice but beware if it's not included in your room rate the price is steep at €18.90 each. We enjoyed our stay in Nice and made use of the sun terrace on a couple of afternoons which was lovely and peaceful and tucked away out of the wind. A good well priced and well placed hotel.
Hotel Mercure, Rue Grimaldi – Well pleased at out 4 days stay at this hotel. The breakfast on offer was comprehensive and filling provided with excellent multi lingual service and very helpful waiting staff. There was no shortage of choice in the provision of either drink of food. The rooms were a bit on the small side as was the associated bathroom but it didn’t stop us from doing anything not did it inconvenience us at all. The rainforest shower was a nice surprise and so a bonus. Tea and coffee making facilities were a bit on the sparse side but sufficient to scrape by without complaint. Overall hotel was clean and tidy and a little quirky in parts with a contemporary-like inside and a more characterful edifice on view from the outside. Reception staff were especially helpful and cheerful. This for me is a typical example of how the staff can make or break a business they were very good here. The bar was limited and something of a parlarva BUT we got a drink and were able to sit and enjoy such in the lounge area which was larger and more comfortable than I had expected.
