“Ruc Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We felt very lucky to find this hotel - the staff (especially Fredrick) were very pleasent and helpful.
Our rooms wasn't the largest but it was quite and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and the sample soaps etc very chic! The Ruc is just out of the main town - around a 5 min walk. We were very lucky with parking as we arrived late and left before 9am so parked right outside the front door and did not have to pay. The breakfast was excellent and would definately stay there again

We stayed at this hotel on the way to Nice but wish we had made it our base for the whole area. The hotel appeared to be recently renovated, very clean and we love our room in its typically French style and decor. Our bed was also very comfortable and quiet as you are just far away enough from the late night hustle and bussle.The staff were amazing and very helpful as well as multilingual as our French is not very good.
We were given an underground car space but only used the car a couple of times as it is such a short walk to the Cannes shopping streets and beach.
I will definitely come back here again next time I am in this part of the world!!

I was in Cannes for the G-20 Meeting in November 2011 and the French government literally closed the shops and main streets near the event took place so it was rather like a dead city. Anyway, a colleague of mine had chosen this hotel for me and I wasn't disappointed at all!

The room was small, but way better than I had expected. The bed was cosy, heat was working just fine and the TV worked just okay. The bathroom looked like it had just been renovated and both hot and cold water were working properly. But the best thing is the Fragonard amenities they provided for us and was generously refilled every day. For me, this shows the hotel management knows what they were doing and how to really spoil their guests, even when the rate is so inexpensive.

There are several garden chairs in the small terrace in front of rooms. Too bad I was there in November but I thought it would be nice to hang there during summer.

The reception staff (if I am not mistaken, his name is John) is really welcoming and friendly. He was also very helpful and willing to donate his time to inform us about the good restaurants and places to go. He was a genuine conversationalist and looked like he actually liked making a conversation with the guests. When we wanted to eat out and it was raining, he lent us some umbrellas and when we came back with take outs, he let us eat together in the lobby and helped us moving some chairs and tables around.

The location is about 10 minutes walk from everything and there is a medium supermarket two blocks away. Overall, I would gladly to recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: If you travel during summer, ask for a room in the lower floor as you can sit around in the terrace...

I attended an industry event in Cannes in March, 2011 and had the good fortune of being placed at Ruc Hotel by the event coordinatory. The hotel was perfect for my needs with a clean, quiet room and a very helpful staff. And did I mention inexpensive? while many of my colleagues were running up exhorbitant bills, mine was less than 200 euros/night and i would bet that my overall experience was as good or better than theirs.

Great little hotel perfect base for Cannes trade events. A little away from the action but that's not a bad thing - its only a five minute walk to the main drag. Room was small but perfectly acceptable and had a sweet outlook across the neighbourhood. Great value. Very helpful staff.

Great and very cozy hotel, with small but nice rooms and comfortable beds.
We've got room with french balcony and lovely view to hotel's patio.
All toiletries in bathroom were from local perfumery named Fragonard and the quality was really impressive.
WiFi was missing all the time of our stay, but there was some technical problem which they promised to be fixed.

This is a wonderful boutique hotel. Great clean rooms, amazing staff and the owner is an 86 year old delight. Merci, Madame!! Everything about this place is perfect. It is nestled in a residential area, but within walking distance to the train station, the beach and all the shops of Cannes. For now on, we will call Ruc Hotel home while we are in Cannes.
