“Excellent hotel for the value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for a few days while on the riviera. Excellent staff, many languages spoken by everyone we encountered. Very accommodating with our needs and had a very pleasant stay. Also the beds were very comfy. Wifi could be better but that's easily remedied I imagine.

This hotel is a great deal for the price and quality. We were upgraded from a regular double room to a superior room (room 412), so we had access to a little more room for a love seat, which we mostly used for all the extra cushions on the bed. Paid 62 Euros a night, plus tourist tax of 1 Euro per night per person. There is elevator after you take the stairs to reach the front desk. The hotel room seemed to have been recently renovated, and tastefully decorated. Spacious. Mini-fridge is available. Mattress is very comfortable. Free bottled water and some candy as a welcome gift. Free wifi was reliable in the room.

Bathroom is very clean, eco-friendly and modern, so modern, there are no shower curtains. While the water does not splash everywhere, the water does spread throughout the entire bathroom floor. The hotel could improve this by putting a floor partition between the shower area and the rest of the room in order to keep the water to one side. Stay barefoot if you want to use the bathroom after a shower.

Hotel location is great. It's on a quiet side street, with access to the main shopping street one block over, 10 minutes easy walk to the train station, and 15 minutes comfortable walk to the old town and boardwalk. Safe day and night even in the old town. Lots of interesting shops on the east and west side of the main shopping street. Restaurants and some bakeries are closeby.

Staff are helpful and available 24 hours a day. They offered excellent suggestions, and helped make reservations.

Nice is a wonderful town. I would definitely visit again and stay at this hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2014. The hotel was easy to find by walking from the main railway station. A useful landmark is to follow the tram line/roadway south from the station for a leisurely 10 min walk. As many have commented, the staff are very friendly and assist with anything you ask. There is a small bar that serves reasonably priced drinks (reasonably priced for Nice that is !) . The whole hotel looks very clean and modern with new decoration. Our room was spotless and tidy and we did not suffer any noise problems. The only minor points as previously commented are the air con which did not seem to do much and the fiddly WI-fi. The WI-fi worked well for one day, but then did not. Several guests commented and despite resetting passwords it never worked again. Fairly minor points but they do advertise the free WI-fi. The 12 euros breakfast buffet was nice with excellent coffee- although on one day we went to MacDonalds nearby for a 3 euro brekkie ! We were able to leave our bags at reception after check out.The location is very convenient for the old town and beach. Overall a very good quality, reasonably priced hotel for a short stay.

General tip - on the last few occasions visiting France have found the buses on short notice strike. On landing at airport found the route 99/98 direct bus to Nice was on strike and seemed to be all week end. Check out route 23 as most reliable route closest to hotel every 20mins up until about 2200hrs approx. It does not go to main station but stops nearby at a stop on Boulevard Gambetta at junction Boulevard Victor Hugo. Cost 1.50 euros compared to taxi at 30 euros.

Room Tip: 101 and 102 are next to the bar and lift but behind 2 doors - We did not hear anything,

I stayed here for 5 nights with my elderly father and booked 2 double rooms with breakfast. Was slightly concerned re the size of the rooms after reading TA reviews, but our rooms 204 and 206 were average sized for a European city hotel and the bathrooms also were a perfectly good size.

The rooms were nicely furnished and had very comfortable beds, flat screen tv , small fridge, safe and free wi-fi (with good connectivity, if a tad slow).

Breakfast was really good, typically French, with a good selection of fresh fruit salad, cereals, yogurts, bread, croissants, ham, cheese, boil your own eggs and a coffee machine providing the most delicious coffee, plus a selection of teas. If you want a full Irish breakfast, stay elsewhere!

The hotel is perfectly located 10 mins walk from seafront and old town. The tram stop is only 50 metres from hotel and handy for quick access to old town.

The staff at hotel Le Florence were all friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. All in all this hotel offers comfortable and reasonably priced accommodation and I would stay here again and recommend anyone.

Room Tip: Did not see front facing rooms, but rooms at the back are quiet. No views though.

Just spent Valentines weekend at the Grand Hotel le Florence Nice. The Hotel is easy to find being about 5 mins walk from the train station which has a shuttle bus service to the airport. The hotel is just off the main shopping street yet is quiet and restful. The staff are excellent, hotel has all the facilities you need and their are local restaurants just outside the door. The beach is 10 mins walk away and a tram stop is just 50 meters away. The rooms are simple yet have tasteful decor, there is a small lift serving all floors. Breakfast is very good but there are alternatives nearby. Wifi is a bit hit and miss, and does not store cookies so you have to keep logging on. In summary an excellent hotel, great staff, is well positioned and with good size rooms. Well recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are good.
