“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

Nice old-fashioned hotel located right in the middle of Cannes - very accessible to Croisette and shops. We had a 5th floor room with a balcony, which was comfortable and gave a good view over the sea-front. Breakfast buffet very good, and staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Room with balcony worth paying extra for.

Perfect location with great view to the sea and Palace de Festivals (if you have room with "sea view"), interesting original old-style interior. Breakfasts on terrace are charming. And by the way - one of the nicest buildings in Cannes.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

I stayed at this hotel in April of 2011. The façade of the Splendid was very grand and classical. I was given a room on the 2nd floor with a balcony over looking the sea front. The view was simply marvellous and there was this great gelato place just downstairs, next door to the hotel reception. I took the opportunity to enjoy my gelato on the balcony outside my room. Breakfast was provided and was served in a very homely room complete with sofas. You get the feeling of being in a home rather than a hotel. The only downside for me was that wifi was not free. Overall, I had a nice experience and may consider coming again if I am in Cannes next time. I spent a total of 4 nights there. The staff were also friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the second story, they have very nice balconies facing the sea.

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last 10 years. In short, this hotel is the epitome of a beautiful hotel on the French Riviera.The rooms are great, the view (is staying on the south side of the hotel) is spectacular overlooking the harbour and the ocean, the service is great with excellent staff, breakfast is good. I have nothing but good things about this hotel!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the south side of the hotel (excellent view!) and if possible floor four or five.

Couldn't be more conveniently located to all of the restaurants and bars and what an amazing view we had from our 2 balcony's facing the water! Staff was beyond friendly and extremely helpful. The breakfast buffet was also impressive. Can't complain about the price either. I will say the room was a little musty when we first got there but after leaving the balcony doors open for a bit, it aired out nicely.
Would definitely recommend!

I stayed here with some family in July, and the hotel had everything I needed. I got a room with a nice view of the harbour and of the ocean. The room was not large, but it contained everything I needed for my stay. I had very little interaction with the staff, but when I did talk with them, they were friendly and forthcoming. Another good thing about the hotel is the price. Considering its location and the quality of the rooms I would say it offers a very good value for money. I am most likely coming back!

Room Tip: Get one with a view!

Having grown up spending each summer in Cannes and returning each year for the International Luxury Travel Market, I know Cannes well and it is a place full of memories for me. The staff at the Splendid are simply splendid (forgive me), the rooms adequate and incredibly convenient for the Palais de Festivale and even the bus station if one arrives by bus from Nice. Breakfast is simple and plentiful if unchanging.

Room Tip: Top floor in recommended and a corner (larger) room if available
