The room was very basic room. Clean room and good size. I didn't stay in the room too much so the basic service was sufficient for me. The view was ok from window. The restaurant is basic and what was interesting, there were not too many other guests at the time we were there. Also a wine we chose from... More

I travel a lot and of the hotels in the area, this had the least bad reviews. Good Points: Good size room, free bottle of water, tea/coffee in room. WiFi works well. Not so good points: Breakfast is well below average even though they charge €16 for it. Restaurant is ok but the waiter at dinner every night of my... More

This is a good choice for a business trip. All works as it should, WiFi, solid bed, big room, sufficient desk space, satisfactory WiFi. I visited in the autumn and cannot say anything about summer conditions. But, the air condition could be adjusted and also switched off. The breakfast was alright, not too many choices, but sufficient for different needs.

Was in Sophia for a 4-day business trip. The Novotel was fairly inexpensive compared to other nearby properties (I purchased the 1 euro breakfast option which was well worth it). The breakfast was very nice every morning. The room was good size, but smelled a bit like mould or damp. I was traveling with colleagues at other nearby hotels, and... More

This review is written more with an angle of the business travel, so keep it in mind if you will act upon it. I would give the hotel 3.5 stars if there would be such option. I had a standard size room with the pool view. By the way, if you travel over the warm time of year, keep in... More

The hotel is a cut and paste copy of any other Accor group hotel... Dirty carpets, old bedroom furniture, chabby bathrooms and anaemic type breakfasts. There is so much potential to make this into an amazing place: the location is wonderful, nestled amongst trees, beautiful gardens, great swimming pool and really very friendly reception staff... So why not invest in... More

We had a good stay in the hotel recently. The hotel is located near the university and is in a quiet location. The room was comfortable and clean. The pool and game table were popular with children. The shops were about 5 minutes by car. We would stay here again.

Great hotel with excellent facilities including pool, table tennis and tennis. Everything is clean and food is not bad. Lovely location too in a forested hill above Cannes that is cooler than the beach resorts. Only criticism and loss of star is that the rooms are a little tired and could do with modernising.

We did stay for 2 nights mainly for relax and visiting Cannes. The hotel is located in a quiet area just north of the A8 and a mere 25 minutes drive to la Croisette. Without a car you are complete lost in the place. Parking no problem of course. The rooms are o.k. and clean, like any Novotel. The breakfast... More
