My daughter is a college student studying abroad for 10 weeks. She and a fellow student decided to spend a long weekend in Cannes. Selecting a hotel when you have zero familiarity with an area can be a daunting task. Tripadvisor was a godsend. After thoroughly studying reviews, it was decided that Hotel des Allees was THE way to go. Hotel des Allees did not disappoint!!! It's a wonderful, affordable, cozy, clean and centrally located respite. My daughter and her classmate travelled to Cannes from Paris by train. They were able to navigate the area, access the hotel and everything of interest, by foot. No car was needed. The friendly and accommodating owners of Hotel des Allees live on property. They are happy to help but not hovering or intrusive. They readily offered excellent restaurant advice (my daughter is a vegetarian) and "how to's" in terms of getting to nearby island, Sainte-Marguerite. Definitely check out Sainte-Marguerite. According to my daughter, "It's magical." The owners' two dogs are an added bonus. In fact, the owners walk the dogs and always offer a friendly hello to their guests in passing. Rooms are spotless, air-conditioned, have free wifi, a safe, a television that offers channels in several different languages. There's a blow dryer in the bathroom and the shower can be used both handheld or hands-free. Toblerone candies are left on the bed. A lovely touch. The hotel and room is accessed via electronic room key. Hotel des Allees was everything Tripadvisor reviews suggested it would be and more. Highly recommend.
