I could not be more surprised than this. After seeing the review in trip advisor I decided to book. On arriving I was greeted by one of the owners carol and subsequently by her husband Laurent. They are a great team very hospitable. I got parking for my rental car and freat service from day one. The room is cosy... More

First off, Laurent and Carole are very friendly and hospitable hosts. They were also spot on with location recommendations for dinner and drinks. The hotel itself is good value in Cannes and is a short walk to the beach and also a short walk (10 mins) to the train station. There is a supermarket across the street and a the... More

My friend and I spent a week in Athenee Cannes. When you are in Cannes you are surely supposed to spend your time outdoors as much as possible just to enjoy this special Provence atmosphere. The hotel was a good French experience. Very clean and cosy, very good location (supermarket - shopping street - the beach - boulevard La Croisette... More

I have spent 2 nights in this hotel. The location was good. Near to main shopping street (Rue d’Antibes). Few minutes to Beach. There is supermarket in front of the hotel and restaurants nearby. The staff and manager were extremely friendly and helpful. They provided a lot of information and guides. The room was quite small but clean. The bed... More

I booked this hotel based on the excellent reviews on T/A and found it to be a bit sad. The curtains weren't great and the shower was quite tiny with quite strange doors which made it difficult to A) fit in (I am not a big girl) and B) not get the floor very wet. There was a mini fridge... More

When my PA booked this hotel I was quite puzzled but then I discovered a nice and clean room, walking distance from the Palais, with a friendly and professional staff. All of this to a very competitive price. This place is the living proof that you can enjoy the Advertising Festival without splashing huge money on the fuss.

Don't let the entrance of the hotel mislead you. The room was quiet, clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly. The location was very good. A good distance to Rue D'Antibes and the train station. A good choice for festival visitors who only need a good room-without the frills.

The location of the hotel is wonderful. It is one street off of the main shopping street (Rue d'Antibes) and maybe 5 minutes walking from the beach. The owners of the hotel are extremely helpful. If you decide on the breakfast in the morning is quite simple-- yogurt, granola, bread, cheese etc. Nothing fancy but sufficient. The rooms are clean... More

We spent two days there, like the location, walk to the beach, shops, train station and the market is the next door. The hotel manage and staff are very nice, gave us a lot of information and directions. We had a great time in Cannes.

At a perfect location one block from Rue d Antibes with secured parking is absolute best value for money in location. Very helpful staff (greetings Homer). Very clean and cozy rooms. I can recommend for Cannes trip.
