It's a wonderful standard best western hotel like you'll find everywhere else in the world, but that's what we like about best westerns, huh? ;-)
We picked a superior double room upon being advised by the clerk that the standard room was MUCH smaller (and coming from a bad experience with the Ibis we were done with small rooms). The size was okay, so I imagine that the standard was really puny.
Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was just perfect (some of the best showers ever seen!). The room faced the inner court, not a great view but at least it was quiet. I am sure you can book in advance and ask for a room with a view on the Rue d'Antibes, on which the hotel faces.
The room was a bit damp but by now I think it's a common feature of French hotels (sic!). It had a minibar, we didn't check the price of items but it's always great to store your own food and beverages! :)
Reception clerks are extremely friendly and helpful: the only minus in our stay is that the wifi internet didn't work. We're scholars so it was not a big deal but were we expecting some urgent email we would have been quite bothered. Furthermore it's virtually impossible to pick a free network with your iPhone in Cannes...
Apart from that we had a beautiful stay and we'd surely go back there if we go back to Cannes in low season (we had a deal for 70€ per night, no breakfast).
