This is an old hotel without any particular charm. It is a pity because with a refurbishment, it could have a lot of potential. However the hotel seemed clean. Location is however very convenient, between the train station and the beach. Walking distance to anywhere in Cannes. Staff is very friendly.

Great location, very very helpfull staff, but what an old and smelly hotel!! The 6th floor have been upgraded but the rest of the rooms are pretty old and noisy. Horrible smell in the hotel the day we were there. In other hand, the fitness is ok and the breakfast average plus, with a rooftop atmosphere.

Whilst the location of this hotel is close to shops and eateries the rooms and breakfast facilities are only 1 star. The lift is very small, if you can get it to come to your floor.

For a hotel purported to be rated four star this was a major disappointed. Negatives include:- 1. Elevator can only carry a maximum of four persons. For a 6 level hotel it was rediculously slow. In fact it was faster to take the stairs, which should not have been necessary, particularly when our room was on level 4. 2. The... More

I stayed here for the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity and was pleased with my accommodations, but they were nothing special.
