I go to Cannes every year for the Cannes Lions Festival. For the first time, I stayed at the Blue Riva. I choose it for the location and the price seems to be very good, especially because it was festival season. I knew I choose a two-star hotel and its limits. I still think the hotel is reasonable, has a... More

i usually book hotels last minute, but this time my girlfriend did the booking, so it was done 3 weeks before. we booked for two days, one of our main consideration was free parking, as it can - literally - worth gold in Cannes. upon arrival at the hotel it turned out that it lies in a pedestrian only area,...

I booked this hotel at the last minute, so I didn't have the time to do the usual massive hotel research that I usually do before booking a place (ie. reading every TripAdvisor review). Big mistake. I found the hotel on Priceline.com, and although there were several with decent reviews that were cheaper, this one advertised nearby free parking, so... More

We booked 10 days with this hotel and what I can tell you is that we loved it more and more everyday. It is wonderfully situated on rue Hoche, and it is close to all main attractions of Cannes. Highly recommended. If you are precious and demanding this place is not for you, but if you like a lovely simply... More

Nice hotel, nothing fancy. Don't let the exterior put you off. The rooms are big, clean and nicely decorated to make you feel at home and most importantly .... the owner was wonderful. We stayed in the triple room with the kitchenette. My brother had the single room. The hostess spoke good english and was fantastic. The first day we... More

Good location, stores and palais des festivals very close...just a few blocks away. There are a few things that I have to say were not great to me: the stairs (you have to go all up 1 floor with the suitcases...elevator only on the front desk on 1st. floor -not good for old people or handicap) the other thing was...

We are a couple in our 20's and stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the beginning of August. We had a very nice time, the lady who owned the hotel is quite a rare gem. The hotel is located perfectly near the train station, in walking distance to La Croisette (main attraction of Cannes). You have plenty of... More

Hotel Blue Riva was definitely the best stay we had on our recent holiday. The owner speaks very good english, is extremely friendly and helpful with recommendations on what's happening and which places to visit. The rooms are very spacious, and the bathrooms very well equipped with lots of storage space. The aircon works like a dream. The location of... More

This place was great! The woman who runs it speaks excellent English and is super friendly and accomodating. The rooms are big and have many amenities for the price. Only about a 5 min. walk from the beach and from the train station. I would definetly stay here again if/when I go back!

This is by no means a fancy hotel, but the new owners made my two-year-old daughter and I feel very welcome. (She also enjoyed playing with the hotel cat.) We booked a kitchenette room and made most of our meals out of fantastic food from the nearby open market - amazing fresh fruits and vegetables, locally-made cheese and sausages, fresh... More
