I booked this at the last second and was pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Univers. These are simple rooms, but clean and comfortable, and the bathrooms appeared to be newly renovated. The location is perfect -- just a couple blocks from the beach, so away from the neon lights and booming music of the festival nights on the Rue de... More

As the other reviews have stated, the location is superb --between the train station and the beach. But beyond that, the pleasant, helpful staff make you feel extremely welcome --you will not find better service. Alexandria, Emanuelle, Justine and all the others are amazing at their jobs. I have stayed in more luxurious hotels that could take lessons from this... More

Good position in the center of the city,the room are clean and complete of all . The personell is very courtesy and the service is good. The terrace for the breakfast is nice. Only one lift is not a good thing when there are a lot of guest in the hotel.

Very friendly and cost hotel that provides clean rooms. Excellent location to Palais De Festival and shopping area at Cannes. The rooms were clean with window. The staff at the desk spoke good English and provided helpful tips on finding places of interest. Will surely go back to this hotel again.

We have stayed here for many years and love the location. The rooms are always clean, and air conditioning is just right - keeps a sensible temperature without making you freeze. Perhaps some would say the rooms need an update, but they provide a lot better accommodation in terms of practicalities than many more boutique hotels with fancy design elements... More

Location is what this is all about and the fact that it's a Best Western guarantees some level of standard though with this hotel this standard was challenging the lower end of that range. A great choice if you have a function in the Congress Hall/Palais de Festival provided you are willing to make some compromises. I'm a repeat guest... More

Location is everything here, rooms are small and pokey, they are clean and you get all you pay for, lift is extremely slow, if you can take the stairs, there really aren't that many.
