“Good location, friendly staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We arrived in Cannes off the train from Nice, and were happy to find that the hotel was just four blocks from the staion, an easy walk down to the central are of Cannes and the Waterfront. The hotel is located about two blocks North of the harbour and a single block from Rue d'Antibes, the main shopping area in Cannes. The hotel is within easy walking distance from everything, and a great base. The rooms are small and the showers are tiny, so if you're a large person, you may struggle a little. Price-wise it was one of the best value for money hotels we found, and would certainly return there in future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We stayed one night in the first week of july and came by train, which stops some 350 m. away.
Actually we paid less and got more in Nice, but Cannes might be more expensive. The hotel charged some 30% in advance, although it's not mentioned on the Venere voucher.
Some tips:
- Bus nr. 8 actually makes a "city tour" with open deck along the promenade for only 1 euro. The touristic train (10 euro, near Palais de Festivals) makes the same track but gets also up in the old town. We took first the train and got off in the old town. From there we walked down through the narrow streets with shops and restaurants. I did't check if there is a public bus that gets there. (the bus station is at the beginning of the promenade, under the old town)
- Near the hotel, on the opposite side of the street there is a cafe-restaurant with Asian food. We had there two coffees and the waitress charged us 9 euro. When I refused to pay this exaggerate price she said 7 euro was OK. The owner of the restaurant was present, but he didn't intervene with this practice.
- We had dinner at Le Voiliers (next to Babylon) near hotel Capitol. Good food/value and location to see the "parade" of luxurious cars in the evening.

Stayed 6 nights at Alize and i´m normally used to stay at 4-5 star hotels.
First of all Alize location is excellent, close to a lot of great restaurants, great shopping and the Beach. The staff was very friendly and helpfull.
Rooms are clean a nice and the only small downside might be the room size, could be a bit bigger. Free internet is also a big plus!
Did not have the breakfast so can´t say anything about it.
In total great value for the price they charge!

This is a superbly located hotel in an affordable (for Cannes!) price bracket. The rooms are small but quiet, neat and clean. We have stayed at this hotel 3 out of the 5 times we have visited Cannes and would recommend to anyone seeking a car-free holiday. It is an easy walk to the beach,train station and airport bus stop meaning that you return to the hotel without heavy feet! We have also stayed with our small children and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The breakfast is basic continental but it's the convenience that made breakfast a must for us each day. We have grown to adore this little place.

When you book a 2-star, you don't arrive with high expectations, so this hotel did not disappoint, but it didn't exceed what little expectation we had, either. The room was small, but clean and the beds were comfortable. No frills. Good central location, walking distance from everywhere.

The location is good, street is quiet( well I didn't wake up on anything), close to the beach shops etc.

Staff very helpful and helps you with any needs you may have.

There is drop-off/pick up parking in the front, if you have any big bags/things to drop off. There is also a lift.

Place is clean, beds are good. Breakfast is good.

Room Tip: Just tell the reception what you want ( if no street noise -back, if no aircon noise, elsewhere - t...

Great things about this hotel: you can walk to it from the train station, it's in the center of town but not on a busy street, good value, well presented interior.
While in cannes i recommend getting a ferry to the island of saint marguerite: it's a quiet island with small beaches and has a fort/prison (and inspired the story of the man in the iron mask).
