“Great value, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

For me, the hotel keeper Mr Denis is one of a kind. He was absolutely great and very helpful with everything, telling us what to see, where to go, stories about the city, etc. etc.
I believe that staying in this hotel made our stay in Cannes much more enjoyable.
The hotel is very cozy and clean.
Breakfast is very nice, sweet pastries, cereal, cheese, coffe, tea, orange juice, server by the hotel keeper himself.
Not even 10 minutes to walk to the La Croisette.
I absolutely recommend Hotel Esperanto to anyone who does not require a luxury five-star hotel. You will surely enjoy your stay here.

I have been going to the MIPCOM conference in Cannes for many years now. 5 or 6 years back, I managed to get booked into Hotel Esperanto and have stayed every year since. It feels like my home in Cannes. I love my comfortable room and my little balcony. It is only about a 10 minute walk to the Palais and the water. The train station is even closer. Shopping, everything is not far at all. Denis (the proprietor) is very welcoming and a joy to chat with. It is a clean, cozy, family run hotel in a quiet but central neighbourhood.

Room Tip: Some rooms have nice balconies

We stayed 2 nights and the staff has been great. Very helpful when we checked in. Plus I called to ask if we could check in early, 11am, because we needed to leave our stuff somewhere and they made it happen. We had a parking spot which was really convenient because leaving your rental car in the street is a pain in Cannes. It is also very well located, 5min from the center of Cannes, 7-8 min from the beach (walking). Room was cleaned and furnitures in good shape. AC in the room very easy to control and effective. No noise from the street when window is closed. I lived 18 years in Cannes and I'm really glad that I have found this hotel for my vacations now that I live in Paris! Thank you again!

We stayed at Esperanto in April 2011. The staff greeted us like we were family, they spent good 30 minutes telling us about all the best places to eat and see. The room was very clean and modern. Comfortable bed, large bathroom. We had the cutest little balcony with 2 chairs and a table. Everything is within 10 min walk. Very quiet neighborhood, parking right in front of the hotel. The hotel entry door can be unlocked only with a code, it stays locked 24/7, which made us feel very safe. We absolutely loved our stay. We will be back for sure.

The hotel is located in a very convenient area about 15 minutes walk to the center. It is a family runned hotel and the owner was kind and helpful at all times. As soon as we got to the hotel he gave us information about the city and we really felt like home. The facility has also a private parking place which is definetly a plus if you wanna stay in Cannes. We drove to so many locations including Nice, St. Tropez, Monaco. Simply Cannes by itself is a very good location to see all these cities around. Again we would like to thank to all Esperanto staff. I would definetly recommend this hotel to all travellers who wanna visit Cannes.

We recommend this hotel. It is located close to the Center of Cannes (5-10 min walk) and very close to the beach (10 min walk) . there is a parking space attached. The rooms are very clean with tv and air conditioning, nicely decorated. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful in giving advice on excursions.

We stayed with 1 week in Hotel Esperanto and really enjoyed it a lot.
We arrived late, but the owner had left the keys ready for us at the reception, and provided the code to enter the hotel by mail.
The owner is very charming and friendly and makes the stay to one of the best. Every morning he's there to provide information about the events in Cannes and which excursions you can take. He has a lot of maps available at his reception on which he indicates the places to be, and nice restaurants.
The breakfast is not included and costs 7 euro's. Do not expect a buffet, but a lovely breakfast outside in the patio. You get some bread, croissonts, orange juice, coffee, thee, yoghurt, cereals, cheese and fruit salad (not fresh). More then enough for a good breakfast according to us.
The rooms were clean and the bed confortable. The airco was working fine, only maybe a bit noisy. Take into account there is no elevator, but there are only 3 floors.
There is free wifi available in the hotel, only in our room on the 3rd floor there was a very bad signal. In the other room on the 2nd floor the signal was great. But now we are talking in details.
The distance to the beach was ok, like a 10 minute walk. The hotel is situated in a quite neighbourhood of Cannes. There was a free parking at the hotel.
In general, nice hotel to stay, basic comfort, but the the owner makes it to a 5 star stay!
Next time I go to Cannes, I know where to stay without doubt.
