The Villa Garbo is a sanctuary in the midst of beautiful and bustling Cannes, I was there for 5 nights on business for a TV market and had yet another incredible experience. It's a beautifully renovated building, completely soundproof and lightproof which makes the jet lag recovery much easier. With 11 tastefully decorated apartments, there's plenty of room to relax....

Normally I never write a review but this place is really fantastic. Located at one end of the main shopping street and a block away from the sea, it's a really good place to start out each morning for your walking visit of Cannes. The breakfast is nice, fresh bread and pastries and freshly cooked eggs done to your liking.... More

As soon as the large doors closed behind you from the roundabout you were escaped back into a haven of brilliant service, peace and quiet. I have just returned from a work trip at the Palais. It was a fantastic hotel , well located to the sea and the town. Valerie the hotel manager was so welcoming. My room was... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Garbo and would not stay anywhere else in Cannes. The hotel is a few minutes walk to the Croissette and great restaurants. Valerie - the hotel manager, Guy -the owner, and the staff (Ana-Maria) could not make you feel more at home. Definitely pay more for one of the suites to have... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Garbo for 7 nights in early October. As per previous reviews, this small hotel has beautiful common areas and the rooms are spacious, clean and very well kept. However, we had booked Villa Garbo, as opposed to a larger hotel like the Carlton, based on the little extras i.e. fresh baked bread and... More

Dear Guest, I was reading carefully your comments and came to the conclusion that we exactly delivered the services you bought on line. It is true that all hoteliers are trying to offer added values on their websites in order to compensate for huge commissions we pay to online travel agencies. This is the reason why we offer the buffet... More

This is a lovely small hotel located a bit off the beaten path. It is, however, only a 10-minute walk to just about anywhere you'd want to go in Cannes. The service here is outstanding and the rooms are large and well appointed. Complimentary drinks and wine are served each evening and the included breakfast is very nice.

Our family had a wonderful stay at Villa Garbo. The hospitality was wonderful and the facility was great. We visited the beach twice and Villa Garbo is an easy walk from there. There really is no "beachfront" hotel in Cannes as even the nearest hotel is across a two land divided road and the promenade. So a four block walk... More

Stayed here for 6 nights in September and we were unsure whether to book one of the big hotels on the beachfront or the more boutique style of Garbo. Glad we made the right choice. We couldn't fault it. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The accommodation was clean (rooms always cleaned promptly when we were out) and spacious,... More

Imagine staying at a luxurious villa, but with five-star hotel service... Or at superb hotel, but with necessary privacy... Villa Garbo allows both. You can enjoy serene vacation or chat up with other guests at evening open bar in the lobby. You can feel at home and treat yourself to outstanding service in designer interiors. Valerie will make you feel... More

Stayed at Villa Garbo in later August with my wife and two of our children, we had one of the larger rooms with the separate main bedroom (with a door hooray, see you in the morning, kids!). Valerie and her team do a fantastic job, they are right there when you need them but aren't oppressive in any way, the... More
