Hotel Le Flamboyant
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Annecy-le-Vieux
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Driving back from Italy to the UK this year we decided to revisit the Hotel Flamboyant that last year had impressed us as a practical, comfortable and economical stop over. The hotel is all of these things but what really impressed this year was the welcome. We truly felt like returning guests chit-chatting about events of the last year and where our travels were taking us now. Set 10 mins walk from the old town centre with it's lovely restaurants, bars and superior chocolate shop; and same distance from Lake Annecy itself; this intriguing and unique corner of France continues to impress as something truly special.

As others have noted, the place has large rooms and pleasant staff, and in general its a fine hotel if one wants quiet and doesn't mind a relatively long walk to Annecy and staying in a neighborhood. However, the climate control/air conditioning is turned off until June, despite it being plenty hot in May; compounding the problem, the manager/owner is not available. Apparently the solution is to open the door, listen to the cars on the highway, and hope the mosquitos haven't started. While I would expect this type of economy in a 1 star hotel, this is not acceptable in a 3 star.

Stayed at this property for one night on our way to Milano. Reviews on-line from several searchers were effusive in their praise of this hotel for its property and personnel. When we arrived, the outwards appearances were ok in terms of condition of the grounds and exterior of the hotel but the real shock was inside the hotel. Our room was an enormous suite with bedroom, sitting areas, breakfast/eating area, beautiful bath and separate commode, AND a very large deck with lounge furniture that overlooked immaculate grounds and faced to the mountains. The personnel were very helpful in providing directions, advice, etc. and also provided an excellent breakfast next morning. It is not in the heart of old town but that's a eminently doable walk away. Highly recommend this hotel (and I rarely give 5 stars reviews).

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.
