Our arrival at Les Studios Floreal was a little mixed... take note that there is no reception, so you have to let the owners know in advance of your arrival time so that they can come and greet you. We were greeted by a woman who was not the owner and, while she seemed to have good intentions, she spoke no English and we spoke little French so we had no idea what she was saying! She took us up to our room (there's an elevator... definitely a plus point) and left us there wondering what to do. Thankfully a few minutes later the owner (MP Gaul... a truly lovely woman) appeared and gave us a map and showed us around. Granted, we should not have expected to be dealing with someone who spoke English, but our little bit of French was in no way sufficient to deal with the first lady. So make sure you brush up on your phrases before arriving :)
Other than that, the room was wonderful! A bit dated, and in a dodgy/loud location, but cheap and DEFINITELY worth the price. The fact that you have a kitchen is so incredibly handy... in 5 days, we never once ate out at a restaurant. The balcony was also lovely :)
No airconditioning was an issue in summer, but we kept our window open at night and thankfully had no issues with bugs (only with loud and obnoxious drunk tourists making noise all hours of the night on Avenue Jean Medecin). Sure, it's not a flashy hotel, but it's 2 minutes from the station, 10-15 minutes from the beach, and was an incredible base for a trip to Nice. I would recommend it not only for a short stay, but for an extended one!
