“Chic Collection - Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

The Hotel Alnea is one of the friendliest hotels I have stayed in. The location was perfect and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to stay in Cannes, close to the sea front and main shopping areas. Excellent value for money!!! Looking forward to my next stay already!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

I have stayed at Hotel Alnea almost every December for 8 years and its the absolute best location in Cannes. Minutes from the Croisette and an early morning swim, all the shops are nearby and the old town is 10 minutes walk. Also the airport bus from Nice stops 100 metres away. Really lovely hotel for business [especially if you are attending an event at the Palais] or for pleasure. Great value and very clean - not huge rooms but then you will be out all the time anyway! This is Cannes after all..

Room Tip: rooms at the back of the building are quieter

I had all the best intentions in the world to write a good review the minute I returned from my last stay in Cannes but life caught up with me and I only managed months later! Saturday past I stepped into the hotel windblown and wet following a massive storm and was welcomed like an old friend!

Why would I rave about a 2 star hotel? I can go on about the location, close to the Palais des Festival and the train station, a short walk to the beaches and near the designer shops and restaurants. Room 16 is comfortable, and I am not missing anything I would from a more expensive hotel except maybe an English TV channel for the weather - but who needs that when the temperature is a moderate 18-20 degrees - in early December!?

What has blown me away about this hotel is the innate nature of the young owner couple, Cedric and Noemie, who can teach 5 star hoteliers a thing or two about making their guests feel special. This evening my colleague and I returned from a long day and Noemie personally insisted we have a cup of warm tea with honey and proceeded to prepare a warm cup for us.

Based on their suggestions we have found the most amazing restaurants I am certain no tourist would find on their own. Italian truly means the best suggestion outside of Italy! Food from the region like it was likely made back then!

I seldom find myself overwhelmed but the small gestures that surprize me daily is the reason why I cannot rate this hotel enough. Worth a serious consideration!

Room Tip: Room 16! Bright and sunny.

The room we had was really small, it was on the third floor and there is no elevator. I don't even want to mention the size of the bathroom! But that's enough criticism, the rest was good: Nice staff, very good location, good bed, good aircon, sound-proof window, good price and it was clean. Breakfast is not included and served in a rather dark room. Even though it was OK, you might consider having it somewhere else.

A sweet little hotel in the heart of Cannes. Funky and nicely decorated. The shops, restaurants, beach and the awesome local food market are all within close reach. It´s also close to public transportation as well as car park facilities if you need to park. Note there is no parking just outside the hotel, just to offload luggage if you need, but there are many safe, underground parking facilities within a short walk. The hotel staff and the owners, Cedric and Noemie, was very friendly and helpful during our stay. I will definitely recommend Hotel Alnea to family and friends!
