    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.

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

    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.

    ... in the grip of a full on case of man-flu.

    As the Airbus A320 (in full one-class economy seat fit) climbed purposefully to its cruising height I began to feel an increasing pressure in my ears. Nothing out of the ordinary, I've had this before, but this time seemed to be more persistent, and significantly more painful. The pain began to subside slightly as we leveled out but the pressure remained, to the point where I spent nearly the entire flight almost ...

    ... 15 PM. We used the time to first wander about the weekend Port de Nice art and antiques market. We next headed to the heart of Old Town, where we meandered in and out of shops and through narrow alleys. We stopped at Brulerie des Cafés Indien for espresso and noisette drinks. I was so impressed with their roast that I purchased a small bag to take home with me. We made it to the open air fish market before it was time to head back to our lunch spot.

    We arrived just after ...

    ... was less than five minutes until the train departed.

    On the second train Jamie made friends with the old lady next to him, even though she spoke no English and Jamie was clueless with her French. Five hours later and we were rolling our bags out of Gare du Nice headed for our lodging for the next three nights. It ended up being the best so far with a bath and even more importantly a full length mirror, which made Peta very happy. ...

    ... for the same train. We all shoved into the train somehow, packed in like sardines. Athena, Ariadne, and I weren't among the lucky ones who actually got seats. But then after a hot, swaying train ride, we were in Monaco! Our first stop was the Palais Princier, so we asked for directions, and a lady pointed us in the direction of another gigantic hill! We climbed up leisurely, stopping to look at the water and the boats, but when we arrived at the top of the hill, there ...
