Amy Adejokun Section editor

Located right at the heart of Nice, the Le Grimaldi is a charming small hotel, even though the decoration in the communal areas may seem slightly worn out. This is only a temporary flaw, however, as there were plans for refurbishment at the time of our visit. Thanks to its location, the hotel is perfect for families and couples looking to explore the city.

    Location 9.5 /10

    The Le Grimaldi is right in the centre of Nice at 15 rue Grimaldi, less than 400m from the Promenade des Anglais and the seafront. Its central situation means that the city's many restaurants, bars and shops are all just minutes away.
    Vieux Nice (the old town), the 'Nice Ville' SNCF train station, and the Palais des Congrès Acropolis (Acropolis Exhibition Hall) are all just a 10-minute walk away, while the Nice Côte d'Azur International Airport is a mere 4 miles from the hotel.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    The Le Grimaldi has 46 guest rooms and suites (23 in each building), which are divided into three categories: Classic, Superior and Junior Suites.
    A cross between classic Mediterranean and a pure 'So British' style, the guest rooms have all been customised. From one room to another, the colours range from ochre and red, to navy blue and white, and to pink and beige with floral patterns. Whether you like busy tapestries covered in arabesques or patterns, floral or not, or the bijour apartment style with flowery curtains, or even a more marine decor with an English-style yachting theme, there's something for everyone!
    What does remain constant from one room to another is the high-quality wrought iron and antique wood furniture, and the good level of light (even more so in the guest rooms on the higher floors which benefit from an unobstructed view of the rooftops of Nice and the hills of Mont-Boron).
    All of the guest rooms and suites are equipped with an individual safe, a minibar, free Internet access, a flat-screen satellite television, air-conditioning, and tea and coffee-making facilities. The 12 Superior rooms also have a lounge area and a desk.
    The Suites are composed of a dressing room, a lounge, two bathrooms and a terrace with an unobstructed view.
    Nicely tiled in pale pink, the bathrooms are relatively spacious, and almost all of them have a bathtub. The toilet is not separate.

    Overview 5.45 /10

    The Le Grimaldi consists of two completely identical Belle Epoque buildings dating from 1926 and which share an inner courtyard. Its listed Belle Epoque-style façade, all stone with white reliefs, rises 7 storeys and from the outside looks like a wealthy bourgeois townhouse.
    Inside, the reception, small bar and lounge are all grouped in one area, with windows overlooking the street. The sofas mark out the boundary between the lounge corner and the reception area, which is composed of a beautiful wooden desk and a china cabinet. The beige tiling, solid wood furniture and bar, pale yellow walls, wrought iron coffee tables and brick-red armchairs give the space a 'modern-provincial-countryside' feel. A little flashy and dated, it is nevertheless very pleasant, bright, cosy and warm. The large sofas, armchairs and small bar are perfect for relaxing, chatting or enjoying an afternoon tea or a pre-dinner drink.
    Although we've seen worse in terms of decor and colour schemes, we learned that the young hotel manager who arrived a few weeks before our visit was planning on refurbishing some of the communal areas that he feels are slightly old-fashioned.
    In addition to this lounge/reception, the Le Grimaldi also has two lounges where breakfast and afternoon tea are served, and a mini business centre with two computers, a printer and a broadband Internet connection.

    Food and drink

    The Le Grimaldi does not have any catering services other than breakfast, which is served in the form of a buffet with homemade jams, fresh fruit and breakfast pastries from one of the best baker's in town.

    To know

    The hotel does not have any guest rooms adapted for guests with reduced mobility.
    The arrival of a new manager has resulted in a refurbishment campaign launched for the communal spaces and partially the guest rooms (particularly in terms of the decor).
    Animals are accepted for an extra charge.
    A physiotherapist can provide tonic or relaxing in-room massages upon reservation.

The attention to detail, the attentive service and very trendy facilities all aim to place this new establishment among the top hotels of the coast.

      The Mercure Notre-Dame presents itself as a town hotel in a sea resort village. As it is not on the sea front, it makes the most of its other features to set itself apart from the competition. One such example is the 360-degree terrace on the top floor that overlooks the red roofs of Old Nice, and provides glimpses of the blue sea. It is probably better suited to couples than families.

      While both the interior and exterior architecture of the B4 Park promises a hotel full of charm and character, the decoration, or rather lack thereof in these vast spaces, merely leaves a slightly depressing feeling of emptiness.

      Ideally situated at the heart of the city, the B4 Hotel Plaza's Belle Epoque architecture is truly remarkable. The communal areas, on the other hand, have a rather cold appearance, although the lovely rooftop terrace quickly warms the atmosphere back up.

      The Negresco is the emblematic palace of the French Riviera. A veritable museum and showcase covering 5 centuries of French history and art, this hotel offers an extraordinary atmosphere thanks to both the wealth of its rooms and their diversity. The decor in the brasserie, 'La Rotonde', alone is a perfect example of the beautiful creative folly that makes this hotel so magical.

      Since the Roaring Twenties, the Palais de la Méditerranée has been a major star of the French Riviera, first as a casino and today as a 5-star hotel. Its reputation is well-deserved, but far from being flashy like you would imagine it to be, the Palais de la Méditerranée is elegantly luxurious, warm and classy. It is a grand hotel.
