“2nd time around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Having stayed here last year on a short city break and enjoying it we returned for a week this summer. We requested the same room and it was reserved for us without any problems by the owner. The location is so good - one block back from la Croisette with it's lovely beach and luxury hotels - and being on Cannes' main shopping street. The train station is just around the corner along with the main bus station. We had booked a boat crossing to St Tropez and the port is just a 10 mins stroll from the hotel. There are various trips available and at reasonable prices. We spent a lovely day in St Tropez and on our return walked into the Old Town for an early evening meal. The hotel has a roof terrace where we could unwind and enjoy the sunset. We find the staff very friendly and a good buffet breakfast is available. Should we return to Cannes we would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: We requested the room we had last year on the top floor (5th) as it is next to the stairs leading to...

Perfect with all you need for short break. On the main shopping street just one street back from the beach it is a small friendly hotel - we stayed at the front above the shops and the room was a good size with a newly refurbished bathroom and a good air con unit that won't keep you awake at night! Wifi is free and there is a roof terrace which is welcome after a day sightseeing to chill and watch the sun go down. Train station and bus station within easy walk as are many restaurants and bars. We are returning in August for a week and have requested the same room which was confirmed with no problems. The breakfast is quite adequate with pastries eggs and ham along with cereals and fruit. The owners are friendly and very obliging and speak good English and while staff don't speak much English they are friendly and do their best. All in all a good value clean hotel.

Room Tip: If you like to chill at end of day request room on top floor for easy access to roof terrace

Ideally located, 10 minutes walk from Cannes congress centre. In the middle of the shopping area. In The back streets are many restaurants.
Room is basic, clean with WiFi. Breakfast restaurant is small, come early to find a place. Breakfast is ok for three star hotel. It took me 40 minutes to Nice airport.

The hotel is rather unassuming being little more than a doorway from the Rue d'Antibes. It is narrow but tall and has five floors plus a roof terrace. The staff are friendly and helpful - the desk staff speak good English but the other staff speak very little English - they are all however pleasant and try to make your stay good. The buffet breakfast is good. The location of the hotel is good being on one of the main streets in the centre of Cannes and just a short walk from the beach and main shopping areas. The only problem we had was that our room (on the first floor) opened directly into the breakfast area. The sound proofing from outside the hotel was excellent with secondary double glazing cutting out most of the street noise. However, the door from the dining area was not sound proofed at all so we were woken every morning by guests having breakfast (especially one morning when a particularly loud group of Italians were in the hotel). To be fair the hotel staff did bring us some complimentary wine on our last night (unprompted) - but if you are a light sleeper, or plan to sleep beyond 6.00am on any day, I would strongly advise you not to take any rooms on the first floor. I assume that rooms on the other floors are not as effected. We enjoyed our stay and would not find any fault other than the noise issue - hich is why the score is slightly lower.

Room Tip: Don't have one on the first floor

I'm just wrapping up my trip here in Cannes, and I've got to say, I'm really happy I stayed here. It's a quick walk to the Palais, centralized location for just about anything, and it's very clean. Service is great as well, everyone here was very friendly and helpful with my misuse of their wonderful language.

Rooms are very European (small-ish, no surprise) but clean and perfectly functional. Free wifi is a nice touch, but it's a bit hit-or-miss with the connection near the upper floors. Terrace on the roof is a deal-maker all by itself. Very cool. Mini bar, flat screen TV, heater in bathroom, room lights at arm's reach from bed. Nice.

Breakfast is short and sweet - great coffee, croissants and baguettes, with options for cereal, fruit, yogurt, assorted sweet breads and sliced meats (?). The ladies here are super pleasant, and make early mornings very tolerable, even with jet-lag.

Having only been to Cannes once, I can't speak to the other hotels in the area, but having traveled enough I must say - this is a great place, if you want the best quality in location, price and services. Loved it.
