“beautiful part of the city”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Located in the suburb of the city with neoclassical buildings and several options for dining and bar poto. rooms are comfortable and quiet, is on the main road or side of hotel.For those who smoke, the only place that allowed is the hotel entrance.there is also free internet.

Stayed here for three nights.The room was not well maintained.Had a problem with the television.no sound.They could not fix it and no apology either!!Found the staff at the reception to be quite indifferent and difficult to get a smile out of them.
The housekeeping staff were a lot more friendly and helpful.
The hotel has only rooms and there is nothing else.No restaurant or gymnasium or anything.They have an arrangement with two of the adjoining restaurants for breakfast and meals.The good part is one of those restaurants is butcher boys which has good food.Their starters especially the grilled calamari and feta salad were brillant.perfectly grilled calamari.The steaks were right up there with the best.But this is not a review for buthcer boys so...
The Free wifi was a good thing but the reception in the room was quite poor and the wifi was down for one entire morning.Speed was very slow.
No chair to sit on in the room.had to work on my laptop and they had this small stool in front of the desk.It was very awkward to sit on this and work.
The location right on Florida road is nice-If you like loud music and cars revving up through the night.If you dont and you have one of the front facing rooms then you will not be very happy.Ordinary glass windows let in a lot of noise and i had a back facing room which had a lot of delivery trucks coming in early morning and were loud enough to be disturbing.The hotel is only two stories so you cannot escape by going higher!!
Would i stay here again.Yes, only for what is around the hotel and definitely not because of the hotel itself!!
If they could train the staff to be more guest friendly and make sure the internet and TV works well, I would recommend this place as a very basic option in Durban.

Room Tip: rooms at the back are quieter.

Just an overnight whilst I waited for a flight home, I arrived after midnight and the check in lady was very welcoming. Florida is a party area though and all the rooms at the back of the hotel were taken so I had to have a room where the surrounding noise was plainly audible. If you're thinking of coming here for the night-life though this is an excellent location as it's buzzing until three in the morning or so. Then I could listen to the drunks swearing undying love to each other before staggering off or getting into taxis and slamming the doors. The rooms have single glass windows so not much in the way of sound proofing...
Next morning the lady on reception asked if I'd slept well but I hadn't, the curtains are quite thin as well and it gets light at half five, so I told her. She said I shouldn't have gone to bed but stayed up and joined in, fair enough and I probably would have thirty years ago. Or maybe even twenty years ago....
The rooms are nicely decorated but no fridge. Bathroom was clean.
There's no lift. And no-one to help with your bags.
Meals are taken, as mentioned, in the bar/bistro next door and are good. There was a special on for lunch, Mozambique prawns.. yum.... but the rest of the menu was good too.

Room Tip: At the back away from the racket!

Very good location. Friendly staff. Room's carpet was not clean. Front desk staff with glass is simply excellent. TV system can be improved. For its location is the best to choose to stay. It's great place to stay for budget planner. Transport is easily available around the clock. I have enjoyed my stay here. You may also try@!,,,,,,,,,,

I was dropped off outside the hotel and told someone was collecting in 2 days!!!!!! Not a great start you may think however on the trip to the hotel lots of bars and eating places were noted to the trained eye. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms clean and tidy with everything that is required. WIFI is free and very good. Food is done by the next door bar and bistro (and very good) The hotel is about a 20 min stroll t the beach front where you can go from the Casino to the Ocean Park (about 3.5km along the sea front) There is local shops and supermarkets a street back from the front and most of the items are on par with the UK. I believe that you would be best to have transport if you wanted to go very far in the evenings but walking during the day caused no issues at all.

I've just returned home after 5 days at the Florida Park Hotel with my husband and toddler. Good central location that feels safe even in the evenings. Clean modern rooms, helpful staff. The rooms at the front of the hotel are very noisy at night, not a problem if you're staying on Florida for it's nightlife but as we wanted a quiet family holiday we asked to be moved to a room at the back of the hotel, much quieter, it was no problem, the staff were very accommodating even though it was one of the busiest weekends in Durban.
Only thing I wasn't keen on was the breakfast set up, by voucher at the adjoining cafe-bar, the choice was very limited and the food very salty. However, opposite the hotel is Europa, a great place serving the nicest food all day, we went there everyday during our stay it was so nice and welcoming. The staff are also amazing with young children.
All-in-all highly recommended.
