Overall, a very good hotel. Close to the beach (10 min. walk) and market. The room was initially small and we couldn't move about so they kindly gave us another room with a balcony. Much bigger and nicer. Clean room. Helpful and kind multilingual staff, especially in getting around (directions/bus/train). No problems whatsoever. The wifi was a bit spotty. Not... More

Tiny bathroom but also fresh and clean. Spic & span bedlinnen and towel (ever to take to the beach). No airco, but we used the fan.... More

After reading all reviews for Acanthe hotel I was a bit worried and doubting whether I should book it or not. Now I can say I definitely did the right choice. Amazing location, right next to old town and its busy bars and restaurants. Easy to find as it is just on the side of Massena Place. 5-7mins walk from... More

The Acanthe has been newly done up and is now an even more pleasant place to visit. Our 7th time there, so we like it !! We had a rather odd problem there, neither ours nor the hotels, but the staff really helped us to get home and to rectify a rather tricky situation. French computer keyboards are rather different...

Perfect location, close to tram, shopping, restaurants, old town and Promenade des Anglais and other points of interest. Helpful people at the desk. The room is barely adequate in size but would never accommodate anyone who is large. I am slender and barely able to use shower/toilet. Anyone large could not fit. The room was clean and adequate. The mattress... More
