“everything you need.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2010

This hotel has everything you need for a more comfy stay on the riviera.
It's located on the edge of the city core, and it doesent take more than a 5 minutes walk to get to down town, the food is as good as it gets but a little bit expensive, i recomend that you eat at local restaurants to experience the regional food of the provance-cote d'azure.
The hotel offers great service and the staff is verry nice and helpfull in several languages, and the rooms are spacy, clean, comfortable and well equiped with bathrobes, bathtub etc.
I can recomend this hotel for everyone who would like to experience the riviera.

Poor breakfasts; nowhere near the sea. Not a place we would recommend. Staff unhelpful. Wrong end of Cannes. Give this hotel a wide berth.

Not a good location. The hotel states that it provides a city bus to drop off at the beach/city etc. They neglect to tell you that the bus only runs when the driver is available. We enquired after the bus 2 days in a row, to be told that there was no driver. In any case the bus doesn't run between 1pm and 6pm. It just seems to be an as and when service so don't rely on it for your 15 minute walk into the town/beach.

Don't be sold by the pool, it is tiny.

The rooms are too small, badly laid out & stuffy. No balcony. No atmosphere. Some staff friendly, some not - they just couldn't be bothered.

If it's price that attracted you to this hotel, you're better off paying slightly less for a 3 star - the quality will probably be better anyway!

Noone thought to tell me the restaurant is completely closed in December, therefore no room service. Nothing. The area is not particularly salubrious either so you don't want to be searching those streets by yourself. All in all not a great experience - don't be taken in by the 4* rating. Ok for a 2* or possibly a 3* at a push.

We've just returned from a five-day stay at the Amarante. I've stayed there before several times on business - and it's an adequte but unexciting business hotel. But I returned this time with my family because we found a very good deal on the web.
The first point to make is that this is not what one would expect from a four-star hotel. It's probably two or three star by most peoples' standards. However in Europe the ratings reflect facilities not quality. So because the Amarante has a swimming pool, bar and restaurant it gets four stars.
The rooms are small but were adequate for two adults plus a child on a folding bed. The bathroom is cramped but the separate toilet is unfeasible small. Although our room faced the main road the soundproofing was fine and we were not aware of the traffic.
Like another reviewer, we were asked not to use the car park because our hire car as too big, so we were offered a space on the forecourt in front of the hotel which was fine.
I agree the breakfast is massively overpriced but there are plenty of cafes or groceries nearby that provide a more economical option.
Overall we were happy that we got value for money. But if I'd been paying full rate I might have thought differently

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2005

We stayed in the Amarante Hotel in Cannes for 10 days last July. On the day we checked out, the receptionist arranged for our bags to be stored by a porter in a separate room in the hotel lobby as our flight was not until the evening. When we returned, we were told by the same receptionist that she had seen another couple walk out with our luggage later in the day and had assumed they were our friends so did not challenge them. All our luggage was taken - two suitcases and a separate bag which contained clothes for our return travel. The hotel immediately admitted liability but we have yet to receive any compensation, depsite being in correspondence for almost a year now.
I feel the need to warn other travellers who may stay in this hotel to take extra precautions if leaving their luggage unattended.
Overall, the hotel was very disappointing and I did not feel merited its four star status. The rooms are very small - and we were staying in a superior room. The pool is the smallest I have seen in a hotel and is directly overlooked by surrounding appartments. The poolside area - if you can call it that - doubles as an eating area and there is virtually no area for sunbathing, unless you fancy being packed like a sardine in a side alley.
The hotel faces one of the main roads out of Cannes and is about a 25 minutes walk to the port. It is helpful to take a bus on the return trip as this is all uphill. The breakfast buffet looked nice but was expensive for what it was.
