“Great location, spacious and friendly”
Reviewed 12 July 2011

If it wasn't for the lack of character, decoration wise, we would have rated this hotel as excellent. We were actually booked at the Festival and Congres Hotel but but the room where we were supposed to stay couldn't have been vacated because the guest who was supposed to leave on the day we arrived had had an accident. The owner of the Festival had organised a booking at the Florian for us which is almost next door. Apart from the lack of character we couldn't find a fault to this hotel. The location is two minutes away from the beach, restaurants and shops at door. We were given a spacious studio in an annexe to the hotel, with one double bed and one single bed, a kitchenette equiped with everything you need to cook (coffee machine, toaster, pans and pots, cutlery etc), spacious wardrobe with many coat hangers, and a large table. The bed was comfortable, the free wifi was very fast, the shower room and separate toilets were spotless. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money.

My husband and I stayed three nights at Hotel Florian and greatly enjoyed our stay. Christian was very helpful (local parking, restaurant recommendations, etc.). We stayed in an apartment with AC that was spacious and offered a good value. The location can't be beat! Highly recommend.

I had trouble from day 1 with trying to book the room, as after 3 emails there was still no response from le florian. I rung them and was told that of course my room was confirmed and they look forward to seeing us on those dates. We arrived to le florian at approximately 3:00pm (after a very long drive from italy), to be told at reception (very rudely) that our room was given away because i hadn't rung up 2 days earlier to confirm!! What a joke. Cannes in Aug is extremely busy, so we ended up staying in a dingy, dark hotel room, we changed our itinerary and left cannes the next morning. Don't let these guys put a damper on your holiday.

Our family spent two nights at the Hotel Le Florian. The location cannot be beat - just steps from the Rue d'Antibes and a block from La Croisette, it's defintely where you want to be in Cannes. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even have parking around the corner - limited number of spaces and extra charge, though. Free Wifi was nice too!

The downside was our room situation - I had emailed looking for a room for 4 (2 adults + 7 y.o. and 11 y.o. boys). We were told they had one and booked a reservation. However, upon arrival they put us in two double rooms for the same price. The value was great, though not exactly what I had been looking for. I'm not sure if they have a quad room that was just being used or if they had intended to split us up the whole time. In any case, it worked out just fine for a short stay and the advantages of location and value overcame the inconvenience of separate rooms.

I would definitely recommend this hotel, assuming you're not looking for luxury treatment. It's basic but it's done well.

Price paid per night: 64 euros
Would I stay again for the price? Yes
Would I recommend it for the price? Yes
The good:
- location, until you get there you dont realise how perfect it is
- staff
- elevator...unusual for a lot of small/family run places in France
The bad:
- the room is not massive but you dont spend much time in it!

Our friends were staying up the road at the Best Western (they chose based on location) and paying quite a bit more so we chose Le Florian on price and it was an excellent choice for 2 nights. Cannes is such a fun town and being well located helps a lot. The only problem is parking if you drive in but the staff at Le Florian were good in pointing out good places to park and explaining that you can put money in the night before they ticks over to the next morning...a handy tip. The hotel does a light breakfast if you want it but we chose to explore the nearby patisseries and were not disappointed. Most importantly, this is a family run place, and they are so friendly and warm it makes a big difference.

This hotel has an absolutely perfect location, right in the centre of Cannes a short stroll from the public beach and surrounded by decent eateries. It also has a good local grocery nearby which is very handy.

A local contact recommended Le Florian for us, a large group of friends visiting for a long weekend break. Places in the hotel itself were fully booked, so we were offered a number of apartments in the street opposite. These were absolutely ideal: some slept two and some slept three (the third in the living room) and although the accommodation is basic (no frills or anything 'boutique' about it) it suited us really well. Everything was very clean and we really enjoyed having a meeting space where we could get together for coffee or aperitifs too. And space to hang out our swimming costumes! If we'd wanted to, we could have cooked and eaten in very easily as each apartment has a decently equipped kitchen. No kettles, mind - but a saucepan on the stove does the trick for a cup of tea!

Most importantly, the proprietor was extremely friendly, helpful and humourous. He appreciated us trying to speak in French but also understood English perfectly well. He had no problem when we had to rearrange numbers at the last minute after one of our party had to drop out - and he also provided continental breakfast for everybody in the main hotel (including a wheat-free yoghourt/fruit for two non gluten-eaters). Breakfast was available until late in the morning (excellent!) and he also opened early for us (7am) when we had to get an early flight back.

Do not expect luxury - the accommodation is appropriately priced - but for the money we couldn't have expected more. NB be prepared for a climb up several flights of stairs with your luggage, as no lift in the apartments (the hotel itself does have a lift). I would definitely return here on any trip to Cannes.

Le Florian is an excellent choice of hotel in Cannes. The location is superb and although the rooms are quite small, this pales into comparison with all the positive features. Good sized bathroom, hand held shower but decent hair dryer (essential tool for the girls). The bedroom had good sized wardrobes with full length mirrors and comfortable beds. The cleaner called each day & provided clean towells & was extremely efficient. Le Croissette is aproximately 30 seconds away & there are lots of bars & resturaunts on the doorstep. Having said that - we were not bothered by a lot of noise at night, although we were rarely back before midnight. The reception staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful & the breakfast is much better than any of the local cafes. No complaints whatsoever, I would definetly return!
