“Great little bargain, beautiful big room”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Our choice of stop over hotel was pragmatic. With two dogs, and a car full of baggage from a two week holiday in Italy we needed to make a half way stop in a comfortable but not wallet breaking hotel. Le Flamboyant fitted the bill but boy were we surprised at the lovely time we had. Set in a residential area 10 mins from the lake, we were surprised at the huge ground floor room we were given. The room had french windows onto a small terrace and enclosed garden, so the dogs were in heaven and we were pleased as punch. The hotel is in easy reach of the old town and we spent a lovely evening wandering by the lake and through the town. The car was safe as the hotel has it's own parking and the mix of French, Italian and Swiss culture very charming. The breakfast was high quality buffet style. Hopefully we will get another chance to visit on our next European tour.

This is a pleasant, small hotel in a residential area. The rooms are small, but nicely done. While it advertizes having a restaurant, it was inexplicably closed when we stayed in June 2013. The staff was somewhat indifferent. There is plenty of free parking. The hotel is a 30 min walk to the center of Annecy and a supermarket is closeby.

We must have misread the reviews as we thought this hotel was a few minutes walk into old town of Annecy. In reality 30+minutes! Staff varied in attentiveness and friendliness. Carpets and decor and fittings are a bit worn and 'tired' looking. Needed to remind staff to top up tea/coffee. Not unpleasant but would try to find somewhere closer to centre and more friendly if we visit Annecy again

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in June 2013. We had a delightful stay and the hotel fulfilled all our needs. We had arrived by car, and therefore we were looking for a hotel with ample free parking, which the Flamboyant had. The hotel is in a quiet position but yet only a short walk to the lake side, and a 30 minute stroll into the centre of the old town of Annecy. If not wishing to walk, there is a bus into the centre that passes the hotel. Our room (number 433) was comfortable, well equipped, and spacious with a small balcony large enough to sit out on, a distant view of the lake and airconditioning. The aircon we certainly needed because the temperatures were around 32-33 degs & it would have been quite uncomfortable to sleep without it.The room itself was unusual because there were no other rooms either side or above it, but there were 2 small flights of stairs to it and no lift, and for people with mobility issues, this could be a problem.The hotel was clean and the staff friendly and very helpful. We had a lovely stay there and would not hesitate to stay there again.
We had breakfast each morning in the hotel which was very nice with plenty of choice.

Room Tip: Room 433 is a great room but has no lift access.

Peaceful location with average, acceptable rooms with nice little patio. Close to Carrefour for great meats, cheese, bread & wines. Hot water carafe in room. Short walk to boardwalk, bus stop & our favorite restaurant "Le Ciselin"...so good we ate there twice!

We stayed in this hotel for a few days in may and we were nicely surprised by the place.
It's a small, but comfortable and clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff.

The rooms aren't fancy, but they are enough spacious, comfortable and clean. The vicinity is very calm and quiet, so you will not be disturbed if you need a good rest (and you can enjoy the view which is pretty nice).The Annecy lake is in walking distance and if the weather is appropriate you can easily get to the old town. There's a supermarket - only 200-300m. from the hotel and if you go further you can find some restaurants as well.

If you need something, the reception staff will allways be helpful and kind.

In summary I can say that we liked the hotel a lot, it's offering a really good value.

* The only problem we faced was that the hotel doesn't offer food (except the breakfast). But that wasn't such a big problem having the supermarket so close. And of course there are some restaurants close to the lake, so in 10 mins you can find some place to dinner :)

I was a little worried when we arrived that the hotel was a little way out from the main town but we would of never got to see the great views of the city and the lake while walking into the main village if we did not stay here. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helped with questions and directions. No restaurants close by hotel but we were aware of that after booking in. Definitely value for money!
