“great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The a/c at the hotel really needs updating it was barely working in the bedrooms and there was none in the corridor so it was like a sauna at times.. but that aside there was nothing else wrong with this hotel.. The rooms were a very good size comfy beds and good bathrooms. The
staff were very friendly and helpful.The pool was not much of a pool but good for a dip and garden nice and quiet which was a bonus. Did not take breakfast at hotel as too expensive .. but lovely cafes & patisserie just a few shops down that served a very good continental breakfast. The location was excellent easy walk from station and to the beach......

Room Tip: request a room at the back as front is noisy

Good location - but: very loud, especially at night, if you get a room facing Rue d'Antibes.
Train station and beach within walking distance.
The AC didn't work when we arrived, and unfortunately didn't get fixed during our 7 day stay. Also, our room had a problem with the shower plumbing. After showering, the carpet in an extensive part of the room was soaked and smelly. From the reaction of the staff that seemed to be a recurrent problem, but again didn't get fixed.

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel, fantastic location on a shopping strip with shops for all budgets. Only a short walk to the waterfront and restaurants. The staff were extremely helpful, Vanessa was so friendly and also the young girl who printed our boarding passes etc. mostly appreciated.

The room was very comfortable big comfy bed with a view of the street from the balcony.
I would happily return here and recommend.

The hotel is in a good location in a main shopping street. About 5 minutes walk to the promenade and 15 minutes walk to the main restaurants. It's also a very good location for the train station.
We had two rooms overlooking the main road but it was very quiet at night. The rooms were comfortable, nice beds and lots of wardrobe space. Unfortunately with one of the rooms the air con wasn't very good and this was needed as the evenings are quite humid here. There are no coffee making facilities in the room which was disappointing
The bathroom was nice with all amenities. Overall the hotel and rooms were spotless.
There is a small garden outside which is nice to sit in. The pool is very small - much smaller than it seems in the photos.
We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel as 16€ was too expensive for us but there are plenty of cafes nearby.
We asked if we could have an extended checkout as our flight was in the evening but were told this was not possible - this was disappointing as the hotel wasn't busy and we are used to getting extensions, even for a charge.
Cannes is not cheap to eat out but then this is expected as it is an exclusive resort.
It's a good place as a base and the train is so efficient. We had day trips to Nice and Monaco. It's about 6-8€ each way and the train route is along the coast with some great views.
Monaco is great and it is worth going to the Palace and Cathedral - the latter is where you will find the tomb of Princess Grace. We were also fortunate in that the grand prix was the week before and so the tracks were still all made up and it gave you a real feel of what it must have been like
Some advice on getting from Nice airport to Cannes. Taxis are about 90€ plus tip each way. There is a bus (coach) from the airport right to the heart of the Cannes promenade for 16€ per person or 43€ for four (they can be 4 adults) - this is what we did and it took about 45 minutes and they are every half an hour. There is no point getting the train as the station in
Nice is a taxi ride from the airport.

We stayed 3 nights and paid 255 euros for double room. We didn't make breakfast, it was18 euros per person.
We make our breakfast in Cafe Cote Hoche(in Rue Hoche,near to hotel), it is typically French Cafe.The hotel has very small swimming-pool, if u want you can make your breakfast near to swimming-pool. The room was not modern, but location was good. Its is in the shopping area. U can 15 min walk to the le croisette. The hotel is paralel to the Hotel Martinez(15 min walk)
15 min walk to the Gare. Wİth train you can visit Nice(in 30 min) and Monte-Carlo(in 45 mn)

We have stayed here often and usually have no problems.This visit found the hotel to be as clean and comfortable as before, however the air conditioning did not work for the three nights of our stay, which meant sleeping with the window open, resulting in poor sleep due to street noise and numerous biting insects in the room.On arrival the reception was welcoming and helpful but when departing, on asking for a one hour extended checkout, (as indicated in the hotel leaflet should be possible if requested) the response was surly and unhelpful. At checkout we were met with the same unfriendly indifference which was very disappointing.

LOCATION - Being a little detached from the old centre of Cannes, the location is still very good - on the main shopping street of Cannes and 10-15 minutes away from Palais des Festivals. You would expect that the shopping street is loud and messy surrounding, but it is almost the end of the shopping street, so it is really ok. Located on the parallell street to the main beach promenade Croisette - you can turn round the block and be at the sea side.

HOTEL - small hotel is being runned by staff in a little chaotic way and impersonal attitude, but no major complaints. The hotel has a beautiful and quiet garden with a small pool area, as well as exterior breakfast area.

ROOMS - the room was not very small and quite convenient, everything clean and comfy. Oldfashioned wooden wardrobes add some french flair to the room. The view on the beautiful old building is also nice. No noise level from the street.

BREAKFAST - the continental breakfast that is included in the price is so miserable and limited that I almost cried. But you get used to that. EUR 4 for an omlet, not so bad.

In general, for the price that you get - this is an amazing spot almost in the centre of Cannes!
