“Location is good, the rest isn't”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

You need to know, I am not dodgy as I am backpacker since long time. Here I was on a business trip and had a normal price hotel.

> First step in the room, not really clean and there was hair in the bath. There was a terrible smell out of the drainage. So I expect that whole the carpet in the hotel was not really clean at all (at least it smelled like that).
> In the night, the walls are like paper! As people next to my room came home, it sounded like they are standing next to me. You hear all the water lines really good and the doors quailty is poor (lot of light from the corridor came in).
> In the morning, breakfast was not good at all. Cheap toast bread and low quality food. Coffe was okay at least. I just ate breakfast there once, the other days I went to the market right next to the hotal before I went to work.
> The staff was ok. Not bad, not good, Just ok.
> The location was really good. It's a 5-7 minute walk to the old town of nice and the shopping street is right next to the hotel.

We had a room at the front of the hotel, on one of the top floors. We could see the Med from our window. The hotel is 5 minutes from the Med and the 'Old town". The staff are amazingly helpful and the location was fantastic. We would definately go back!
It has a lovely garden room were you can relax at the end of the day.

The undeniable benefit of this hotel is the location, as has already been pointed out by many other reviewers here. We booked a special offer via a website and were able to have a triple room for a very reasonable price.

Unfortunately when we arrived we were given a double room, not a triple. We went back down to reception to inform them and they said they would bring a 3rd bed to the room for us at some point later that day. I was surprised by this as I couldn't see how they would fit a 3rd bed in such a small room.

A single fold out camp style bed was provided.The maid who delivered the bed was determined to squeeze it in but had to permanently lodge the bathroom door open in order to do so, which wasn't really appropriate for 3 friends who were sharing a room, unless they wanted to see each other whilst using the toilet or having a bath. I was going to go and fetch the manager to complain about this but couldn't really be bothered with the conflict because we just wanted to get on with our holiday. We rearranged the furniture ourselves and managed to close the bathroom door.

The other negative point that I would make is that some of the facilities featured on the hotel's own website were not provided. When requesting the promised tea and coffee making facilities we were told that these were not available in the hotel. The room safe for personal artefacts and valuables was available, but had to be hired at an extra cost.

Would I stay here again? Only if there was a very special offer price and I was on a short trip where I wasn't expecting to spend much time in the hotel.

The hotel itself is a fairly standard, medium-sized, medium-priced, medium-quality place serving a decent continental breakfast…but it is in an absolutely brilliant location. Ten minutes walk from the Vieille Ville, three minutes walk from the Promenade des Anglais and opposite a boulangerie, a cheese shop, a wine shop and a mini-supermarket/greengrocer. Given that there are also more than a dozen reasonably priced restaurants within a stone’s throw and a multi-storey car-park at the end of the road for those mad enough to take a car into central Nice, it could not have been in a better position.
Little to say about the bedroom: ours was perhaps a little on the small side and the walls were paper thin, but it was scrupulously clean and the bed was comfortable – which is all that you really need on one week’s holiday. The staff were polite and friendly, and the main receptionist even gave us the choice of conversing in English or French. If I were to return to Nice, there is every chance that I would return to the Hotel De Flore.
And one piece of advice - Car parking is prohibitively expensive in central Nice; public transport throughout the Region is excellent and cheap, so it is a no-brainer: Don't hire a car!
