Résidences Florella Cannes is the correct name for this property and it is not a hotel but self catering apartments.
Located on the Boulevard de la République the front of the building could do with a little cosmetic work as your first impression could be...oh oh, not sure what we are going to find here - it looks like we are going in to a side entrance of a closed down shop.
However, the check in procedure is all carried out prior to arrival by email and key collection is a simple process...just use the code provided in the email to open the front door, and then the safety deposit box...take out the keys and your in ...simple and no hanging about and the reverse on check out, close the door and leave the keys back and your away. Wonderful.
We stayed in a very pleasant 1 bedroom apartment - very clean, light and functional. The kitchenette has a two ring electric hob and a fridge plus a microwave, kettle, coffee-maker, toaster and plenty of cups, plates, pots and pans etc. So very easy to make breakfast or a quick lunch or light evening meal. There are cleaning materials supplied so you are expected to leave the kitchen in the same condition as you find it. If not, you will be charged a 25.00€ cleaning fee - this is clearly stated so no surprises.
The bathroom has no natural light or window but is a reasonable size and fully equipped.
The apartment can actually sleep 5 people (1 x double sofa bed in the lounge area, 1 x single bed in a curtained off section of the bedroom - so ideal for a smaller child and 1 x double bed)..The quality of the bedding was excellent, really soft sheets and a duvet. Plenty of wardrobe space, iron and ironing board, safety deposit box, TV with six channels (BBC World & CNBC (English), RAI1 &RAI2 (Italian), ZDF (German) and TVE (Spanish) so you can at least keep up with the news... there is dual heating/air-con units in the bedroom and living area.
Extra cleaning or change of towels and bed linen are available during your start for a supplement.
Situated less than a 10 minute stroll to Rue de Antibes..the main shopping area..and the Croisette (beachfront), with a selection of shops (mini-market, greengrocers and bakeries) right in the little square on the corner and public parking across the road...this is a great little place at the right price in as near to the centre of Cannes as you would want to be.
Okay, so there are 3 floors and no lift or outside space, pool etc.. ..but there is FREE WIFI...which in my book more than makes up for having to walk up a few stairs...and come on, this is Cannes...all life is outside !
Would quite happily book this accommodation again.
