“Happy to have chosen this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

The Florence was well located in Nice, close to shops, transport, and the sea. It had a traditional French feel about the rooms, and the staff were exceptional. I am really glad that I chose this hotel. There were plenty of places to eat close b,y and I would recommend it to other travellers

Great location and wonderful value but..... I understand this may be a common problem in the French Riviera, but the lack of temperature control in our room was frustrating. We were told the AC wasn't "on yet". Our window opened to a fire escapre so we couldn't keep it open as it was technically like opening your door to the public (a warning sign even cautioned us of this) when we were out. At night the windows could be opened but then our room filled with Mosquitos. Woke up in the middle of the night covered in huge bites with a bunch of Mosquitos swarming the room. Had to "sleep" in a stuffy hot room the remainder of our stay as we had no other option. Big damper on our visit. Also our drinking glasses were never changed or clean even though we left a daily tip. Disappointed at the level of service.

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights, choosing the well-priced junior suite to give us a bit more room. We were really pleased with this hotel. The room was clean and newly renovated and we were especially happy that the hotel takes conservation and ecological concerns seriously. The friendly and helpful staff is a great strength for this property. We particularly want to single out Nicolas whose advice added very greatly to our enjoyment of Nice. The location of this hotel can hardly be beat. It's just a bit out of the hustle and bustle of the tourist area and on a quiet part of the street. It's maybe a 3 minute walk to the tram stop, although it's an easy walk to the main square and the old city. A discount is available for the breakfast if you book through the web site or a travel agent. We found it convenient to use. Overall, we really like this hotel and would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: French hotel rooms are smaller on average than North American rooms. Consider an upgrade to a junior...

Green Features: Highest marks! Great attention to sound ecological practices that goes way beyond lip service. The hotel even has bee hives on its roof!

We had a lovely three nights at this hotel. The room was very clean and attractively decorated. We had windows onto the street which, when closed, blocked out any noise. The shower was great; strong and with plenty of hot water.

Desk staff were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel was a very easy walk to/from anywhere in Nice.

Would definitely recommend this hotel and can't wait to return to Nice!

Stayed here for 7 nights for a combined vacation and business meetings. My husband brought his bicycle and so the desk clerk gave us a slightly larger room that was still within the price we paid. Nice to receive a basket of treats and two bottles of water after our arrival. Booking hotel directly with their website reduced the breakfast charge to 6 euros per person. Wifi in room allows only one connection per email address.Used different emails for each of us to log on as needed on our separate devices. Location very good with easy access to the sights of Nice. As others have said, not much of a view from the room but the real views are elsewhere in the city. Room was quiet; perhaps being on the top floor helped. Bathroom layout fine in our room. Also very quiet when windows closed. Beds comfortable with nice pillows.

Had a double room April 2015. Just off a shopping street (Rue de Jean Medecin). Clean. No view to speak of. Very small - couldn't really walk around the bed. Unable to use the toilet itself in the usual as it's position in the bathroom meant you had to use it at 90 degrees to normal. TV fine - about 20 french channels, a few German, one Russian, and BBC 1, 2 and CBeebies. Did the trick but no more. Was stung for breakfast at €12 per day, which I thought was included; slightly frumpy unfriendly woman at reception was pretty unapologetic and offered no compromise. Wifi annoyingly only allowed one appliance at a time, and took a couple of minutes to switch between laptop and phone.

Room Tip: Probably another hotel

Green Features: Lots of notices saying they were eco-friendly, but perhaps they just wanted to save money?

We booked the hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It is nice and central in a pedestrian area. The room was clean and the refurbished bathroom very nice. Free use of safe in room complimentary water. Two BBC channels on the television handy for news. Nicolas on is excellent speaks very good English and knows everything you need to know. Best tip from him bus 100 from the arts centre to Monte Carlo 1.50 euro's each way great views on the 30 minute trip lovely clean comfortable bus and they depart every 20 minutes. Great. Will stop here again.

Room Tip: 507 the back of the hotel nice and quiet
