The Hotel Florita is the only active 19th century coffee magnates mansion in Jacmel. Jacmel predates "New Orlands" architecture entirely original. Furnished with antiques—art and artifacts are everywhere. Best bar and restaurant open 24 hours. Jacmel, safest, most charming town in Haiti, the least touristic Caribbean destination for sophisticated travellers. Jacmel was built on coffee--still the best anywhere. We have a plunge pool and access to the beach. Get picked up at the airport—by car, or fly. Arrange excursions, find anything you want. A plunge pool to cool of or swim in the sea. Friendly English-speaking staff, see our reviews--and who wrote them! Sheets cotton, feather pillows. Local meat and vegetables--live poultry. PERHAPS THE ONLY HAITIAN HOTEL WITH THE 10% SERVICE CHARGE GOING TO THE STAFF

The room is simple and clean, and the bed was very comfortable (king-size, not just two twin mattresses put together!) with a good mosquito net. The air conditioning unit was not functional but the room stayed cool through the night. The hotel staff was very friendly and spoke

Hotel Florita is a charming hotel that is one of the oldest in Haiti. With that being said accommodations are simple, clean, and what one would expect from a nearly 150 year old building. I had some minor issues with my hot water and mosquitos and the manager quickly addressed

We stayed here for one night based on seeing it on Chef Jose Andres' "Undiscovered Haiti" (a must watch if you are travelling to Haiti). It's an older building, beautifully preserved, with a large bar/ restaurant in the lobby where you can enjoy what we have heard on good

So it has to be said, there's not an abundance of places to stay in Jacmel. (Which is sad, really, as more people should come.). And yes, that's partly why this is perhaps pricey, considering. But put that aside for a moment, and this is a beautiful old historic building.

Hi Steve, Sorry we never got back to you. I hope you ended up staying with us anyway despite this? If not hopefully we will see you the next time you are in Jacmel. I would be very interested in seeing your photographs of surfing in Haiti. Do you have a website or Facebook page where I can see them? Would it be possible to arrange with you to use any of your photos? Please let us know the next time you are in Jacmel. The least I can do is to buy you a drink. That said: We are going to put surfing onto our website. And would very much like a few really good photographs for that. Thank you – and again sorry for missing seeing this. Best regards, Joe

Y a t il l'air climatisé dans les chambres ou est ce qu'il n'y a qu'un ventilateur?
Il y a plusieurs ventilateurs par chambre. Nous n'avons pas eu trop chaud ;)

"Carriage House rooms are close to street with car/motorcycle traffic... other rooms may be slightly quieter."
"Room 7 i think. Ask about the room with the balcony if in your budget."
"Upstairs rooms have large balconies with great views and space to hang out. They offer more airflow so are a little cooler."
"The rooms overlooking the balcony are beautiful and make you feel like you've stepped back in time"
"loved the rooms with a balcony!"
