I was visiting Cannes for work and so I did not pick where I stayed. With this in mind the hotel was not particularly close to the Palais but still within walking distance - approx 15 mins. It is located right by a main road and a train track so is a noisey position and to get to the shopping, restaurants & cafes you either turn left and cross the main road or turn right and go through a subway. The subway is well lit but I would recommend that any lone females get a taxi back or make sure you have colleagues to walk with as it doesn't feel like the safest location.
The Hotel itself is ok but nothing to get very excited about. It is decorated with suits of armour which is little bit odd... the rooms do not have a kettle so you can't make tea or coffee. There is also no mini fridge so if you need a bottle of water or a soft drink etc you need to order it through room service. I did discover a vending machine down by the swimming pool so that is a cheaper option! You have to pay for Wi-fi; either per hour or for 24 hours. It's 15 EUR for 24 hours. Considering so many places are able to provide this for free it's a tad annoying... especially as you have to go down to the reception desk to arrange access (you need a little slip of paper with a log in and password). I did not have a menu in my room so I had to ask for one down at reception but I was able to arrange for breakfast in my room each morning (I prefer this to going to down to a restaurant) and although it shuld have cost 2 EUR extra I was not charged this, so that was a nice surprise. I also had dinner in my room one evening and it was nice food and the service was very good - the girl who works there is very friendly and is from Nottingham. All the staff, except the Chamber Maids, spoke very good English so this was a massive plus.
There is no gym but there is an outdoor swimming pool. It is not heated but it is a lovely space which is unfortunately marred by the proximity to the main road and train tracks in terms of noise levels. However, it is nicely fenced in by bushes etc so you do have privacy from the road/tracks.
So, over all a pretty average hotel with quite basic rooms but the staff were on the whole pretty friendly and helpful. I can't make much comment on the value as I did not book or pay for my room but I know this is an expensive area.
