We were made very welcome and the Hotel was very well placed for the park and shopping. The view was hardly inspiring.
Staff is very friendly, breakfast was excellent, hotel in general (colours, furniture...) Room for breakfast is too small for so many people
Great location, very close to the Messena Place and the old town. Restaurants close by. Rooms are a decent size as far as French hotels go and for once the air conditioning actually worked. Staff spoke English and were helpful. We were only at the hotel for a quick overnight stay and didn't arrive until 9:30 pm so we didnt spend a long time in the hotel. Had breakfast in a cafe in the market.
I enjoyed the fact that the hotel was very central with easy access to buses and trains.
proximity to local transportation international channels size of room was too small even for one person extremely loud at night rude employees!
Near to the City, clean room Room was very smal
Location No parking facilities offered to guests, however there is a public parking with preferred rates overnight
We got a good deal for the 'Privileged room' and we were given an upgrade to the next level as it was out of season and they had the ability to offer it to us. Was great to have a large room for a few days. Close to the beach and loads of shopping, restaurants, cafes and the stop for the hop on hop off tour bus. They had all the flyers of tourist things at the counter. Wifi was good. No TV reception for english channels.
Location was good and hotel's decor fun and kitschy. Small room.
convenient location, not too noisy
Location was excellent I wouldn't say it was 4 star. It was very basic and tatty in parts.
The availability and efficiency of the staff. The quality of the infra-structure, atmosphere of the hotel and its location. The room bathroom could be equipped with more towel hangers. During breakfast it would be best if the service staff would not start cleaning the room (washing the chairs, etc.) while people are finishing their meal. It disturbs a bit the breakfast experience.
The staff was polite, funny and spoke perfect English. The manager worked like crazy to help out at the breakfast. We were impressed. The rooms! They're fine but there was absolutely no where to put anything. Our room had one lawn chair. It was weird. It all feels a little too Miami Vice with the colors. Felt slightly Miami-ish/Golden Girls. Bottom floor was noisy with window open.
Very accomodating, not too big and felt personal. The service is exceptional and the spa is a must-do.
The hotel seems over-rated. It gives you the feeling of being old or overused or at least not well taken care of. Beyond the intention of design...some of the fittings seem...cheap... Plus, the idea of having the bathtub in the room could be special, but it is not practical. The lights are also not thought in a practical way...
The Incredible architecture, fantastic staff and superb rooms.
the roses all around the place no service after 12 a.m. :(
Great location. Friendly staff. great room. All extars very expensive - eg breakfast or to have a drink in the bar (22 euros for one cognac !)
You can hear everything in the corridor. not good service at all. horrible breakfast
Beautiful hotel, good location, very friendly and efficient staff. The hydrotherapy pool is lovely
great hotel ,great design , nothing
Beautiful design, good location for shopping The air conditioner didn't work well, it was very hot when we arrived at evening time. I called the reception two times, they promised to come and do something but they didn't, so we suffered the very hot room even in autumn time, +17 degree outside. They only fix it in the next morning.
Nice adjacent restaurant. Clean room with an bit odd, but original, design. Clearly visible that the hotel was renovated last year. Noise level in the room was a bit high due to the busy road outside.
Food and Hotel were gorgeous. WiFi 7E for 30 mins in reception! No WiFi in bedrooms. Should be free in bedrooms.
best price in offpeak season.
The hotel was very central and most of the staff were excellent.One guy was very rude. We only had one key for a shared room.Could not access the iron in evening before dinner and the receptionist did not do his best for us to get it. he was very abrupt saying they did not have one.The hairdryer was antiquated.very old and useless.need replacing.
Super helpful staff
staff was friendly no maintenance in the evening.
The hotel is very well located Staff at the reception could have been more helpful
The location to the shopping district. I think the decor and carpeting could be updated.
the ubication was excellent, the hotel is modern and the personal was very nice
upon checking in we reported the bed linen being dirty, it was noted and told it can only be tended to the next day, the next day the roomstaff still did not change it. I certainly won't stay at this hotel neither recomend it
Great location - quite close to train station. Clean hotel and had a room with a balcony overlooking Rue Jean Medicin. Friendly staff. Nothing in particular.
the friendlyness of the staff at the reception desk The rooms were not cleaned adequately every day, sheets were not changed and soap was not restocked every day. Also, internet access was a rip off pricewise.
Location Staff not very helpful. Very slow to deal with guests at reception
What I liked most about the hotel is that it is very central. You are near the sea and shopping and restaurants are also very close. Probably coming from a country that has a "smoking ban" I felt that the smell in the corridors was quite overpowering, and this was made worse by the fact that air freshner's were used. I feel the hotel needs some freshening up. Breakfast also was delivered incorrectly to us on our first morning. We did not get what we ordered and it was cold.
The location, and room size. The hotel was very clean. We would have liked 2 chairs in the room. The bar area was basic and lack atmospere, it did not open until 6pm. The roof terrace was closed the whole time we were there.
Excellent location for shops and beach. Very nice hotel. Room not quite matching external areas of hotel. Overall,very nice hotel. Rooftop restaurant/bar/seating area impressive. Room very average.
Location Poor view from room. No coffee or tea making acilities in the room.
location excellent, quiet, very good maid service, plenty of towels the tv selection is not for english speakers, the shower did not have hot water all the time and hard to control, bathroom small for so called luxury hotel, no coffee or tea with room, no couch in room, staff was aloof
Location Everything else. Room to small old dirty, poor breakfast, service. My Deluxe room was much small than my friend's superior ?
location, price and atractivness I does not have a pool and the room was small.
Location Room size
we were given room 401. We liked it because it was a renovated room with a view of the sea. The bed was very good. Towels were good and the supplies (soap, shower cap, body cream etc...) in the toilet were good.
clean, comfortable beds, friendly and helpful staff, excellent location
Well positioned geographically and staff were very good - always polite, courteous and helpful. It did not appear to have bar facilities.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The storage of luggage if waiting for your room or a late flight. The hotel stacks the luggage in the breakfast room which is open to anyone. It would be safer if locked away.
Good location, reasonable price Wifi reception was poor
Nice, comfortable, clean, good central posizion, excellent staff.
it's amaizing, in the middel of the center of Nice,the best staff and the prise is very good for that location.
the location of the hotel was convenient to both the train station and old town. the accomodations were fairly typical of that level hotel. the staff was friendly and helpful, particularly when i had issues making an international call - the front desk attendant went further than i would have expected to help me make that call. i was a bit surprised when i asked for restaurant recommendations that i was sent all the way to old town. when i asked for something closer, i was advised to go to the restaurants immediately next door, not because of their quality but because it was a "What the heck, they're decent and they are next door" issue. i guess i would appreciate the hotel having a few quality restaurants in the immediate vicinity that they recommend to their guests who don't want to walk all the way to old town for a meal.
The place where the hotel is situated. (Location). The bed was small and hard.
the staff are helpful and the location is convenient Basic room, but not really expecting too much. Price of Petit-Dejuener was such that I didn't bother to have any.
Good, central location. If you are given room in the worse part of the hotel (we were) - no wi fi, no lift and zero noise protection - you can easily hear what TV channel your neighbour is watching.
Internet was not available in the room, there is no elevator in the part of the hotel I stayed - at least they could have offered to carry our baggages to the room.
Friendly & helpful team of staff. Good size room Good choice of breakfast Sofa bed was a bit uncomfortable
We enjoyed the air conditioning and friendly staff
Enjoyed to quiet location, large cheerful rooms, delicious breakfast, relaxed atmosphere
The location is the only thing that is positive about this hotel, nothing else was positive during my stay The room was just dreadful. I stayed in room 317, and if you ever get this one when checking-in, try your best to get another one. The room looks like it wasn't meant to be a guest room. Apart from being very small, it is very dirty, most of the furniture is ugly and partly destroyed. You can tell that the Brice hotel hasn't spent a single euro in refurbishments over the past 20 years. The bed cover had cigarette holes and was particularly dirty, the small desk was sticky and must haven't seen a sponge for years, the chair is in a very, very bad shape, etc. By far one of the worst hotels I've stayed at in Europe.
Location rusty water, hair on the bed, poor breakfast
The friendliness of the hotel staff, they could not have been nicer especially when we were delayed returning home. The room was excellent and it was kept clean amd the maid service was excellent.
It was situated in a lovely area of Nice. The garden was the main attraction. Also very peaceful.
Value for money, Location
Convenience to the City and the rail station. NA
very close to the train station, quick 5-10 min walk to the beach breakfast was horrible, the room was tiny and the reception staff not overly helpful. they charge extra to secure your belongings in a safe and extra to store your luggage after checkout
I like the garden and the exterior architecture. I appreciate that the manager made me a small discount for not having air conditioning in the last day of the sejour. The staff promised three times they will provide me parking place with no result. No one of the receptionist was able to explain me how is the wireless internet working. The breakfast is very poor for the money you pay.
No Free wifi
friendly & helpfull staff. & 200m from main rail station & airport bus stop. no
It is a good hotel and the proximity to the rail station is its strong point. Not very far from the promenade too.
Very pleasant and friendly staff at the frontdesk. They provided maps and info about the city when we checked in. None.
close to train station, reasonable price, walkable distance to many sight-seeing points... cramped washrooms...
Staff were friendly , very helpful & efficient. Good location with the main railway station close by - yet no noise:-) Décor of rooms and throughout hotel is very quirky . Definitely a boutique type hotel. Limited storage space in our room . Had to move furniture to open one of the wardrobe doors as our room whilst lovely & clean with nice décor was small. We didn't have a car so parking not an issue for us . Extremely limited on street parking space for those with cars.
proximity to train station difficult street access; lack of nearby parking
The location was perfect, right around the corner of the mainshopping street. Rooms were very French romantic, though could do with some polishing. Normal price is 200 a night, via booking only 60.
Character and charm of the accommodation and the friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was ever a problem for them. Loved everything!
I liked the location of the hotel price. The hotel has clean enough.Close to the sea, the pedestrian area, restaurants and shops. I did not like the room was very small. The hotel has no wireless internet.
The room, the location and the price
Staff very helpful and happy to speak English. Good location just of the main Promende des Anglais and short walk to the old town. Room was a bit small and could her those in adjoining room (they were noisy though)
We had a large comfortable room. The hotel has a very convenient location close to the water and shopping area. The old town is also nearby. It is also close to many restaurants.
Good location near the beach and shops etc. The bed was uncomfortable, the cooler didn't work properly in our room, we couldn't regulate it, and the nights were rather hot.
Location Very small bedroom. Bed too soft. Breakfast had few choices
Perfect location. Dedicated staff. The bed was really uncomfortable. It was the only and major disadvantage of the hotel.
Hotel is clean, comfortable and friendly staff, not luxurious but for the price it was certainly great value. Location is superb, cafe's and shops on the doorstep, 5 mins walk from the Promenade de Anglais, old town ten mins away. Didn't have any food - went to the Boulangerie across the road. All in all an excellent little hotel - ticked all the boxes. We were on the first floor near the breakfast room, so if you hate noise it may not suit you - but I like the bustle of city hotels and this did not bother us at all.
Close to the seaside. Very, very slow elevator
Friendly staff It was located in an area that I would not consider safe; it would be better further south but were not made aware. Because of safety, a car park would have helped for coming back late.
only location my air conditioner is not work, but i got only 10 euro back . It too expensive for the room without air conditioner
Please write at least 15 words Dirty tired.uncomfortable beds. Miles from the beach.Inedible breakfast disgusting outlook.
Closeness to Rail and Centre of City
Nothing. I have visited 27 countries, I saw a lot of different hotels. But this hotel is the worst hotel that I have ever seen! I was afraid to take a shower, because it was ssooo dirty! it is not 30star hotel. I will not even give 1 star to it! The lamp in the toilet was blinking like at the discoteque and the staff did nothing to help us. Staff was not aatentive, not smily, they just didn't care about anything. The door of the toilet didn't close. Wallpapers were 3 cm from the walls. It is a peppergrass for 100 euro per night!!!
Lovely room/decor attention to detail. Balcony superb Small room. Party on top floor was very noisy until after 3am. No hot water or air con on last day.
Not a lot Really only a 2 star
Our room was upgraded for no extra cost I missed the possibility to make tea or coffee in the room
The location. The air circulation in the room was not very good. Therefore, it smelt sort of rotten (from the humidity).
Nice environment, great location and great value of money. The room was a bit small but very clean and with modern decoration. Overall the best of this hotel is the location which is ideal and the value of money comparing to the services and the facilities which they provide.
Was upgraded on arrival to a renovated room. Room was lovely. The location of this hotel is excellent- minutes to the beach, market, etc, beside the shops and has the tram in front. Has the rooftop bar has best views in Nice.
Excellent location .Easy to access. Breakfast charge 20EUR/person! plus expensive internet charge. Usually at that room price, internet is free of charge.
i liked the location which is in the heart of the city, close from the old town, shopping area, resturants and cafe, as well as the beach and massena square.
Excellent location, very central; pleasant hotel and staff small, fairly dark room; small towels in bathroom; high payment to use internet
The constant maid service became annoying. Even with the do not disturb sign on the door we were disturbed. The first morning we woke up to the maid walking in to our room. Though we appreciate they are trying to do their job, we were on holiday and felt like we were not allowed to relax in our hotel room.
Staff were helpful and polite. Breakfast was very good. Beds were comfortable. Availability of computer in the lobby for internet use was very helpful for re-booking flights and trains given the train/plane cancellations caused by the strikes. Meant we didnt have to go out and search for an internet cafe to access the net. Not everyone carries a laptop/ I pad with them so having a computer to access on site was very useful! The superior rooms were clean and comfortable but small. Could possibly be improved in terms of being re-decorated. Re decorating would render the rooms I stayed in more asthetically pleasing. Also sometimes the rooms were too warm at night. Air conditioning is too noisy when its put on as is leaving a window open. This is a general problem with most hotels, not just the Mercure!
Location. Excellent breakfast. Good size room. No towel racks in bathroom. Portable fridge to use dumped in a corner on the floor. Plenty of coffee and tea but only two nimbles of latte.
The vicinity to the beach. The hotel couldn't accept credit cards because their machine wasn't working. We had to pay by cash for 6 nights (which came out of our holiday spending money), the annoying part, however, was that we weren't advised until we were checking out, so it was very inconvenient. Also, there was no mini bar in the room (fridge especially) so we couldn't keep our own drinks cool.
The hotel is decent for a three-star. We chose this hotel because it was pet-friendly. The room was decent if a bit drab and the location was good. We found the front desk people extremely unfriendly and unhelpful, which was a damper on our whole experience. With many hotels in Nice, one should consider others in the area.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful, breakfasts were good and breakfast staff were excellent, they couldn't do too much for you. Rooms were clean. Ideal for shopping and business alike. Sparse room amenities. Poor decor in bathroom
The location was perfect great resteraunts nearby
Kept clean and reception staff friendly and helpful
Location great just two minutes from main restaurants, yet in a quiet street. Friendly and excellent quality and cleanliness. All in all a great stay and would definitely go back or recommend it. Tea and coffee facilities would be good
Good Location, Helpful staff, Comfortable Hotel Bad odour coming from the sink tap.
the location is good, close to shopping area, old Nice, public transportation very small sized rooms with old decor and furniture, unfriendly staff, no minibar
The room was bright and well designed, also the location was convenient. The shower caused a flood in bathroom everytime we used.
The location is very good, room is charming original and quiet :-) ... the rooms look a little bit 'tired' they need a 'botox treatment' ;-)
Nice atmosphere, family style - great garden. Nice staff. The bed was a bit small, internet worked only part of the time.
The garden was lovely and the staff were exceptional. They were very helpful and friendly. The pool was cold and the breakfast was quite expensive. We would have also liked a cover on our beds not just a blanket.
Nice rooms, imaginative decor, pleasant staff. No complaints.
The outdorr breakfast terrace
Location and staff were excellent room a bit tired, not as 'design/arty' as expected
Breakfast in the garden air conditioning not great
We have stayed in this hotel many times before. As always, the staff, facilities and comfort were excellent. Hotel is ideally situated
Location Garden Facilities
Close to shopping, restaurants etc. pleasant staff. Daily room cleaning. Building work on the building right beside our bedroom that started early morning, incl. Weekend. I believe car parking should be free.
The staff was kind enough to endure my sophomoric attempts to speak French. They, in fact, spoke numerous languages fluently. Over a four-day stay, they helped arrange our scooter rentals (do explore the beaches and villages east of Nice!) and made excellent recommendations for day trips. The location was just a few blocks from the Nice beaches - a pleasurable walk through the nooks and crannies of the city. I rated the room "good" rather than excellent because of the deferred maintenance on the garden side of the hotel. The rooms were clean but a bit shabby.
The breakfast at the hotel (15 E) was far to much
The staff was very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the garden area where wehadbreakfast. Just watch out for the seagulls. My room was very nice and very quiet. I would like to have stayed longer at this location but it was already fully booked
charming hotel and room to the garden. clean room. comfortable bed even the room to the garden was a little noisy
Afternoon coffee and rolls was nice. Street side of hotel is too noisy. Prospective guests need to understand that. I wouldn't pay this much again for such a noisy setting. Breakfast is far too expensive.
The little things that count like tea and coffee in the room, a towel warmer, a really nice shower, pastries and coffee in the afternoon (free), foreign and local newspapers, a computer (free), friendly staff, loan of umbrellas, convenient location--all added to the quality of the stay.
The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and refreshingly 'unstuffy' for hotel staff. The garden was peaceful and tranquil and our room was lovely. The hotel was also ideally situated - near the beach, restaurants and the train station.
The staff were very helpful and welcoming throughout my stay. Reception arranged for an emergency wheel-chair for me within hours of the request.Excellent breakfast and service. Had no problems.
We were upgraded to a larger room because the initial room had a suboptimal wifi signal. Both rooms are nice as they are facing the garden, and are quiet. The rooms look tired and require renovation.
We found the staff in both the reception and 8th floor bar extremely helpful, friendly and very smiling (a characteristic not previously noted at many French Hotels). We had to make a number of reservations (other hotelsd, golf clubs, business meeting, taxis and hotels and the reception staff simply said ''leave it to us'' Upon return to the hotel everything was perfectly arranged.The 8th floor bar has a good selection of drinks. .I would definitely recommend this hotel and will personally stay there agin on my next trip to nice nice. I I had any negative comments I would say that in the 8th floor bar they could have more selection of snacks and serve them at all hours
Staff very friendly and keen to help Safe area Convient to Train station (5 - 10 minute walk)
large rooms, enough space and clean nothing
Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel was conveniently located next to shopping area and close to transport for the airport.
Great location - less than 10mins walk to main train station. Supermarkets and bakeries close by. Not that far to walk to the old town either. Tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms.
walking distance to shopping area and beach
the location is strategic, good set-up, excellent breakfast offer. we had pleasant stay there. definitely a serious consideration whenever we visit Nice again in the future
Staff helpfulness and courtesy n/a
The breakfast was very good with lots of variety, it has good location, short walk from the train station and right in the middle of a shopping street. We were quite disappointed with our room, it is very old-fashioned and we had a small tv. It looks very different to the pictures they presented on the website, and for the price we paid, we expected a better room. The pool on the roof top was nice, but it was too cold to swim even with 25 degrees weather, would be better if it is heated.
Friendly reception staff. Excellent location
Very nice hotel, friendly people at the front desk. It was more personal than a big hotel. The only little remark I have is that we had a double room but there was only one bedside table and lamp on the right side of the bed. I would like to suggest that they arrange the same on the left side of the bed. I have mentioned this to someone at the reception. Our room was on the 4th floor.
good value for the price near to train station
Friendly and helpful staff
location and price
Nice an near the station plus it was not far to walk to the town and seaside
good, cheap, clean hotel Was actually a good 15 min walk to the beach and not really close to any other restaurants etc apart from those near the beach or the high street. Also no air con made the room uncomfortable on warm evenings
It was good. The hotel is a budget hotel, with really small rooms (as are in all of France) which are really clean. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The cafe next door has with good coffee and croissants (that's all I had..) and nice waiters. Also, the area around the hotel is great, a block from the train station and a 10 min walk from the center. Not much. Do remember it is not a fancy hotel. It is ok for a 3-night stay.
smaller and more traditional in style. good position Coffee and tea making not available in rooms. Bathroom somewhat run down
Location, a quiet street, helpful staff Poor breakfast, no Wi-Fi, the bath promised in the bedroom but finally we had a shower.
good location, clean and tidy, I like the soap and shower gel they offer. central heating is not strong enough
Nice room, helpful staff, very clean No all was ok, for those who like to have breakfast in the hotel, there is no special room for restaurant, breakfast is served in the lobby
stayed in Le Grimaldi twice: friendly English-speaking staff, good location, pleasant atmosphere, clean and cosy
We enjoy the French style of the hotel, the warm welcome and very helpful staff. We had a superior twin room and it was very large with very large bathroom. Decor not terrific but ok.
Helpful reception staff
hotel staff was very kind, helpful and proffesional for hotel of that cathegory breakfast looked to be quite simple
The staff. loaction and design of this hotel is perfect for a visit to Nice and the surrounding towns. This was our 4th stay here.
Good location and service
Location / the Reception staff & the best House Keeping the rooms facing internal. We changed our room after the 1st nite.
It's location. The character of the hotel. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff
Peaceful courtyard with parking; reasonably convenient location; reasonable price. Balcony on our "superior" room would have been really nice if the weather had been better.
Friendly, helpful staff. Good location.
green environment Before booking you should show which floor the client will stay. When we went hotel they gave us a room in basement, a room with humidity, we insist to change and then they changed.
A lovely motel, and very central Room Service was very dissapointing.Lack of toilet paper and no internet in my room as was advertised on bookings.We had to sit outside to have use of the internet.
The personell very kind and spoken En, fr, it
staff very pleasant at reception. price of breakfast.. didnt get it to expensive
Good central location On site parking Swimming pool very small.
I came from italy and switzerland from staying at 4 stars hotel and this one dose not deserve even two. It had a dirty aspect the halls and the rooms.
excellent staff, very helpful shower was not on the wall, but attached to the bath taps only
It was very central to all areas. The staff were very helpful.
quiet and comfortable place
The hotel staff were extremely helpful. The best hotel staff I have come across so far. The terrace room was worth the money and the location of the hotel was good. The pool was good too. The internet and pay tv facility was well worth it as well. They could improve by getting better beds. Beds were quite small even tho we stayed in a superior room.
transfer was well-organized.. dirty rooms, disgusting smell in the hotel, especially in rooms...
Location Uncomfortable pull-out sofa bed supplied for 3rd person in room. Extra pillows requested 3 times never arrived, swimming pool is more like ornamental pool just off reception.
I like the position, in front of a small garden park and the existence of the balcony. The TV programs are just very few and not correlated with international guests (e.g. at least CNN, Euronews should have been available)
good location, friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms
Excellent location, very central but calm area. Friendly and helpful staff. Good value for money considering what to expect. Comfortable beds and clean bathroom.
During after hours, the hotel is run by unexperienced staff. The hotel room was full of mosquitos
location,comfort, staff attention. no
Friendly staff, large bathroom, near to train station Poor breakfast
The hotel is close to the city center and the beach We had to ask for the bath room amenities two days of four.
Location was good,Friendly staff.
The guest reviews were not applicable, because the entire hotel had been renovated earlier in 2007. This made the stay more pleasant. The location of the hotel is pretty good. It is near various music schools, not far from the beach and the old town. The price was good, especially for a 3 star hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only problem was that on the first night they gave us the wrong room. When they corrected the problem, we had a wonderful room for a good price. I would reccommend this hotel.
Large rooms, with good airconditioning. Parking was excellent and a reasonable price, although you must pre-book. The staff spoke good English and there was someone on reception 24 hours a day. We did not get fresh towels throughout our stay.
