“cheap, central and noisy”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

This was advertised by the travel agency as a 3* hotel but i would say that it had 3 stars in the 90's. Old furniture, old tv, old phone -> really, the last time I've seen phone like that was before 2000.

The front desk stuff was polite and helpful, a good +

Room cleaning was on the average side. One day they simply forgot to do it, and they don't change the towels found on the floor...

Air con is 5 euro's per day and you'll need it. You can try to sleep with the balcony door open but even if you think that you won't have a problem with the heat and the humidity, you'll have a problem with the noise. All rooms face the same side, to a small uphill streets that leads to some interesting taverns.

And during the high season all day and all night there are scooters and atv's that revv their small engines in order to climb up that street. Due to the great acoustics, it's like sleeping outside.

But it cheap and central. Give them 5 euro/day, close the balcony doors and you'll sleep just fine.

The hotel is situated in the center of the city, very close to all the main attractions.
The rooms are big enough but the furniture is very old and the rooms have twin beds.
The hotel has no parking space and I would advice everyone not to park in front of the hotel (we found our card vandalized).
Breakfast is also very poor, you only get toast, butter and a very bad coffee.

The hotel is in the center of the city, you can get almost anywhere in a few minutes. The rooms are clean, cozy, spacey and the beds really comfortable. They have a small balcony but it's great to spend time in the evening before or after going out.
Breakfast was quite poor and it's the only minus for this hotel. Margarine, ham, cheese and jam all the days. But anyway, it's a cheap hotel so if you want luxury then you should pick something else. The staff is really nice.
We really enjoyed staying here, it's a welcoming place with a good price-service ratio. Very close to the sea and on the main street of Hersonissos, which can make it a bit loud sometimes but it didn't bother me that much.
There's a nice view from the hallway, especially at sun set.

Room Tip: all rooms are facing the same way on a street going up to the village of Koutouloufari. You can see...

We had a tiny tiny room, no closet for our clothes. We had a tiny balcony. The food was horrible and very cheap. The staff was rude. Plus we had to pay 5 euro per day for AC! There was no non-stop reception, they gave us a key to the hotel, but the lock was broken, we had to struggle every night for like 15 minutes to open the front door.

Best ratio for quality / price - decent conditions; less money for accommodation, more for fun.

It's situated in a central area, very close to the main street where you can find shops, restaurants, rent-a-car ... everything.

The rooms were cleaned everyday (except Sunday); the towels and sheets were changed every 2 days. Old furniture, but OK. TV and a small fridge are available.
For AC and safe-box you must pay extra. The bathroom is small. From the balcony you can see the sea. More details in the attached pictures.

The breakfast is very light: a type of ham, a type of cheese, butter, jam, tea, coffee, juice, bread.

At the bar, at night, you will meet Stefanos - a great guy to chat and entertain.

In the end, at Floral you will find all you need for a decent holiday if you don't have very high expectations.
