I payed 762 euros for a 9 night stay there, i arrived at 4pm only to find out my room was not ready and they would call me later, never happend! Then when i saw the bad couch bed, with a bed cover from 1983, my heart sank. Then I found out, i had to rent sheets/pillow case for the bad plastic pillows, and a towel that can only be descibed as a dish cloth. The pillow cases had black stains on them as well. The shower head was broken, the sink gurgled all night, and the a/c was broken. After one night of no sleep, i decided to leave. I offered to pay half of the 762 euros for their inconvienience, but they would not refund any of it. Not to mention the rental of sheets and the 10 euros an hour for internet!!!!!

We had an apartment because we were in Antibes to see friends who lived nearby., The hotel was ideal for this but certainly not the kind of place I would have wanted to spend much time in. Maybe we were unlucky in that we had no view at all - only over a car park. The twin beds were also a sofa and had to be made up with sheets that cost extra. We used the well equipped kitchen for breakfast and that was all - we did not use the restaurant which didn't look very inviting. The staff did their job but the occasional smile would have helped!

Checking out was interesting. We had given a 200 Euro deposit on arrival. This was returned in entirety at the end of the stay without the room being checked. Needless to say I had left it looking immaculate but how did they know this?

Room Tip: Ask if there is a view when you book - sadly we didn't!

They advertised a rooftop pool with great views and told me the hours when I checked in, but somehow failed to mention that the pool is closed in March. Would have been great to know before I dropped $400 for a room for a week.

The personnel in the hotel was charming and always very helpful, the rooms clean and functional . Our rooms had large balconies with a splendid sea view and sun lounges. The hotel is also superbly well located half way between Cannes and Nice, so easy to radiate by car across the Cote d'Azur. The rooms have a fully functioning kitchen and convenience shops at walking distance . Wifi is available in the reception only but very reliable, skype included.

This is a very good value place to stay in the South of France. Antibes train station is about a 5 minute walk at most from the front door, a further 5-10 minutes and you're in the centre of Antibes. The hotel is situated on a busy road but set back quite a distance from it so noise isn't too bad - you can take a number 6 or 10 bus from Antibes station for 1 euro and get dropped off pretty much directly outside which is handy.

The hotel itself is pretty basic. Rooms are decent size, each with a balcony which has enough room for the number of people staying in the room. The rooms are in need of freshening up though, the pull out beds are pretty tatty and the white pebble-dashed walls aren't overly appealing. Our room had a toilet room separate from the bathroom (which also had a shower over the bath). Both were fine but also in need of upgrading, although that would inevitably push up the price.

There is a nice rooftop pool with views across Antibes and over towards Nice. Internet access is available at a cost, we found it to be very slow in the rooms however a cheaper option is offered in the reception area which was fine. Linen and towels are not included as standard, we hired bed linen for 13 euros per person, towels would have been another 5 each on top.

There is a large swimming complex between the hotel and main road which can be a bit noisy at times when events are on. Also, a large amount of building work is underway next door for a new auditorium, which looks liked it might still have a few months of work to be done before it is completed. If you hire a car you can park on the main street, on the side street leading to the hotel or pay to park in the hotel's underground car park.

Room Tip: If you phone up you can request a specific room, 4th floor at the back of the hotel looked quietest...

This was the cheapest hotel we stayed at on our trip to southern France but one of the best. Quiet rooms with own balcony. Clean and with dishwasher.
Nice rooftop pool. Very close to busses and train station making us opt for leaving the car in Antibes and visiting many cities by public transportation.
Only complaint was the bed, we expected a double bed but got a pull out couch in two different levels, more for friends than couples.

This place is so bad, Its ridiculous. I was staying here with my partner in a room with a "double bed". The room was so small and the double bed was actually a single with a pull up bed- pushed up against it with a gap in the middle. We luckily discovered that no sheets were provided unless hired which was very annoying considering we travelled all the way from NZ to France adding sheets took up alot of luggage space. We were ready to put the sheets on the bed and there was only a fitted couch cover provided as a blanket the pillows were paper thin and it was even better to go without. It is basically a dirty bare room as no cleaning services are provided (and from the looks of things have never been carried out) with no welcoming touches or anything comfortable that you need, though it can be hired for a ridiculous price and even then not be worth it. By the time pillows, cleaning equiptment, kitchen tools (knives, chopping board the basics etc) were added to the bill we may as well have stayed at 5 star accommodation. On top of this we spoke to a couple who had reported that their room had been broken into with all of their belongings stolen from their "secure room" that was locked and the staff accused them of not shutting their front door.. Talking to staff was a nightmare as they appeared rude and even laughed when we asked if they simply had a dishcloth. Even people who are looking for budget accommodation should beware. This place is pathetic.
