My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights in May, ‘14. It was an excellent base for exploring Nice and the Cote d’Azure. It is located on a quiet pedestrian street in a very nice section of the city, just steps away from Rue Medecin where there are many shops, restaurants, and a tram line. It is an easy walk to buses that go along the Promenade and to other towns along the coast, and just as easy to get to the train station (when we arrived at the airport we took the bus to the train station and walked with our luggage to the hotel). There are other hotels very close by that are at the same level or higher.
Our room (#507) was good sized and attractive, with a desk, mini-fridge, two built-in closets (one with a safe), one on either side of the comfortable double bed, two night-stands -- plenty of room for storage. The a.c. was quiet and effective. The included wifi was good but required repeated log-ins. The system may soon be upgraded. The bathroom had recently been refurbished and was fairly large with a shower. A shelf above the sink and also above the toilet provided good storage space.
The reception area was small but a there was a spacious lounge area on the floor above, and a pleasant breakfast room. The breakfast was excellent with a large selection of fruit, pastry, cereal, meat & cheese, yogurt, eggs that you could boil yourself, and a very good self-serve coffee machine.
A very positive feature of staying at the Grande Florence for us with the extraordinarily friendly and helpful staff. Several different clerks helped us with restaurant recommendations and reservations, directions to attractions, and in general were very welcoming. This helped make our stay very pleasant.
We highly recommend the Florence. It is a pleasant, well-run hotel that provides excellent value and a comfort.
