“Older style hotel, basics all there”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We stayed in this hotel for one night as part of a self guided cycling trip. Our room was in the secondary building and overlooked the street - a bit noisy. Room was small, dark and furnishings were dated. But it was clean. The bathroom fine but small. No AC but a small fan was provided. Breakfast in the main hotel building was quite good with a selection that went beyond "traditional french" and included fresh fruit and boiled eggs. Garage was available for secure bike storage. No wifi at all - I don't understand why in this day and age. As others have commented the gelati shop nearby provides another option. All in all I would probably try somewhere else next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main hotel building overlooking the canal at the back, it will be much much qu...

The hotel is in an excellent location on a side street near the main square. The place itself is unremarkable bit served its purpose as a convenient place to spend our one night in Saint Florent. The rooms were fine. Unfortunately the bathroom didn't have a bath and the bedroom had a fan rather than air conditioning. However for what it sets itself up to be it meets expectations. The breakfast was fine and served on the verandah. The staff were fine but could have been a little more engaging. We would stay there again for a one night stop-over in Saint Florent

Can't say we were as impressed as the majority of reviewers. Hotel was booked for us by bike tour company. Nice location, but rooms very spare and no frills. Rooms in main building a better bet than rooms 1 trough 6 in the auxiliary building. The patron was a bit grumpy, but other staff was pleasant.

This hotel was selected by our cycle tour company for it's central location in St Florent which was perfect.

Upon arrival we were quite impressed with this 2 star hotel. It has a large car park and a garage. Our luggage was waiting for us in our room which was large and clean with a large clean bathroom. It had comfortable bed and a fridge. Considering it was on the ground floor right by the entrance and the car park it was very quiet.

However, during our 1 night stay we noticed a number of strange things. There were no plug sockets available - the only ones used for the fan and the TV were near the ceiling. There was even a lamp on a corner shelf but nowhere to plug it in. The only accessible plug socket was in the bathroom, however once we had used the hand-held shower the whole of the bathroom/wetroom floor was soaked and I got an electric shock when I tried to use the plug socket!

There was an unusual list of things that were 'forbidden' on the back of the door and the door had some strange tape stapled around the doorframe. We think this was to prevent insects from coming in as the door was external and there was a green light on outside attracting the insects. The tape was actually quite effective it just looked strange.

We slept well and breakfast was a pleasant surprise on the outdoor terrace overlooking the canal.

Would recommend this hotel for it's location but it's facilities are very basic!
