    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel le Florence Nice

    Nice, quiet place!

    from

    We spent three nights here in mid-July over the Independence Day holiday, when the city was very crowded. This part of town, however, wasn't. It was very quiet, and the hotel very comfortable.

    Our room was upgraded by a very kind clerk, so we ended up with a balcony, which was nice both for eating outside and for drying our laundry. The fridge also came in handy.

    All the staff was extremely friendly and very professional, and most seemed to speak very good English. We'd definitely stay here again.

    Just the job

    from

    We stayed at Le Florence Hotel in July 2004, we found it to be very clean with very pleasant/friendly multilingual staff (our French is very weak), good modern tv with English speaking channels with a very useful refrigerator. Good quiet central position and pleasant buffet breakfast at extra cost. The one down side was the semi-blocked toilet that despite reporting was only cured temporarily otherwise would thoroughly recommend and return ourselves with no hesitation.

    Friendly staff

    from

    We stayed at the end of June 04 and the staff were friendly and the hotel clean, on the down side the room was the smallest we had ever stayed in but was serviced every day and the location was good ideal if you aren't expecting any extras The veiw from our room was not good as we were at the back and looked out over air con and the back of other buildings. Would recommend this hotel for a short break but room too small to stay in without going stir crazy . We didn't have breakfast as we wanted to try out the cafes in old town area

    Good Hotel

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel de Florence Hotel for four nights in May, during the Cannes Film Festival and the build up to the Monaco Grand Prix. The hotel is just off the busy main shopping street in Nice, but does not suffer from excessive noise. It is situated within 5 minutes of the train and bus stations.

    The first room that we were offered was very small. The receptionist was very friendly and changed our room. The hotel is clean and tidy and breakfasts were fine.

    We booked the hotel and flight with Expedia and it proved to be a very good deal.

    We thanks you to have choosen our hotel for your stay in May 2004.

    Thanks for your review on TripAdvisor. We are pleased to see that you appreciate our hotel.

    Service is important for us and everybody work hard for that.

    We hope to see you next time and will pleased to welcome you again in Nice.

    A good deal

    from

    My wife and I stayed here mid-May 2004. A good hotel for the price. We booked through Expedia and got a special 'fourth night free' deal. Staff were friendly and helpful and immediately changed our incorrectly allocated smoking room on request. Our double room was small, the ergonomic layout was not the best and there was only a hand-held shower facility in the bath, but it was well soundproofed, clean and had the bonus of a fridge and some English speaking channels on the TV. The Hotel is on a side-road off Nice's main street, so shops of every description (including a supermarket) were in immediate reach. We are not breakfast people, so didn't try it but it seemed to be popular with other guests. They don't do any other meals, but there were dozens of restaurants in easy reach, including three immediately outside the Hotel door. Seemed like a very safe area and even the usual big city beggars were non-aggressive; we felt comfortable throughout our stay.

    Central location and friendly staff!

    from

    My partner and I stayed at this hotel over the Easter weekend 2004.

    This hotel was centrally located and only a short walk to both the main bus station and the train station which makes for easy access to Monte Carlo and Cannes. While our room was rather small, it was clean, very well presented and serviced daily. All rooms include a TV and a refridgerator which was very convenient. I would recommend this hotel as it was a reasonable price with friendly staff in a central location.

    Great little hotel - value for money

    from

    I went with my partner for a long valentines weekend in Feb. 2004 and it was lovely. We just happen to catch the start of the carnival of the clowns which lasted for 2 weeks. Everybody on the streets were having fun - it was an experience.. This was a great little family run hotel.

    The rooms were very clean with a refrigerator and TV. If you don't want anything too luxurious but simple, this hotel is good value for money.

    However, we did experience only one bad thing - we had breakfast one morning and several small individual portions of raspberry jam was mouldy even though it was within the best before date but I wouldn't blame the hotel for that - must have been a bad batch which they couldn't have noticed themselves. If you hire a car for your holiday at this hotel, they can arrange a discount with the local car park since parking within town can prove to be a problem and rather expensive.

    Otherwise would not hesitate to go back there.

    We thanks you to have choosen our hotel for your stay in March 04.

    Thanks for your review on TripAdvisor. We are pleased to see that you appreciate our hotel. Service is important for us and everybody work hard for that.

    Since your review, we check more often all jam...Thanks.

    Great time at Le Florence

    from

    We got this place last minute this past weekend in Nice and were pleasantly surprised. We had a room for 3 people - we each had our own twin bed and it was quite spacious. There was a working refrigerator, A/C and a small balcony. The bathrooms were renovated and the staff was friendly and helpful. Best of all, it only came to 240 Euros for the entire weekend - less than $300. We even had a 4th crash in our room last nite and though the concierge seemed a little annoyed about it - he didn't charge us.It's only a 10 min walk to the old town and the beach.

    We thanks you to have choosen our hotel for your stay in July 2003.

    Thanks for your review on TripAdvisor. We are pleased to see that you appreciate our hotel. Service is important for us and everybody work hard for that. We are personaly in Reception every day to be near our guest.

    ... after eating our picnic, we went back without staying too long. we got some good pictures though. That night, we planned on getting Moules Frites, because Nice is in fact a port town and Ziming, who would have guessed, loves french fries! We went to this local place and ate moules frites. By the end, we were super super full and we walked along the gorgeous Nice promenade to get back. It was a scene that I need to revisit with a significant other, because the lights, the places to ...

    ... they have arranged to keep it 'leaning' for another 200 years with underground cables. Some of the blocks of stone and large marble pavers have been taken and moved here from the forum in Rome. You can see latin writing on the walls. The green lawn is a great contrast to the 3 white buildings standing alone against the blue sky. I am more impressed with the church than the tower. Ok, time to hold the tower up.

All within an hour. Definitely going to need two plane seats for the ride home. Headed to Nice now. 3 1/2 hour drive. Ugh. Just got to Nice. It's already 7:00 so I missed going to the beach to take pictures. Only pictures from this stupid bus. I'm already in love though. The water is ...

We decided to lay out in the sun instead. We were too lazy to get towels, so we just laid out right on the rocks. After you get situated though, it wasn't too uncomfortable. Then Mrs. Dreas and Madame came over to say hi and Mrs. ...
