“Decent Stay”
Reviewed September 30, 2008

This hotel is alright. The room was clean and a good size with a big bathroom, which was stocked well and also very clean. The AC worked well, and the room was quiet at night. Two twin beds were pushed together to make a "double". A plus was the free wifi available throughout the hotel, gaudily advertised on the outside of the hotel. The hotel was about a 10 minute walk to the old town, but quite convenient for those arriving from the airport by bus - the stop at Dugommier is about 200 meters away. I also think it's nice to have a hotel slightly outside the center so one can get away from the tourists and feel the pulse of everyday life.

Still, I consider this place a little rough around the edges, so don't be surprised to find a big stain on the carpet or a crack in the wall. To us it didn't matter because the bathroom and sheets were very clean, and anyway, it is not so easy to find a hotel in Antibes for 65 Euros, it at all.

Another note: when we arrived to check in, we were told that our reservations did not exist and that the hotel was full. This was strange given that we made the reservation by telephone and confirmed a week prior. Anyway, a room suddenly became available.

Average place for those looking to spend a night and more interested in practicality than amenities.

We arrived in Antibes with nowhere to stay and arranged our hotel through the tourist office. We weren't expecting much, as it's only a 2*, but I was pleasantly surprised. OK, it's not the Ritz, but it was clean, well-equipped (much better than the 3* we stayed in in Grasse) and in a great location between the station and the town. Only 5 minutes walk from each. Staff were genuinely very friendly and all spoke excellent English. We don't normally pay for hotel breakfasts in France, but at only 6Euros it was excellent value. We had two nights in this lovely town and it only cost us about 80 quid all in. A definite gem!

  • Liked — genuine and friendly staff

This 2 * hotel is a rare gem in Antibes..... You have to bear in mind that it is a 2* so you can't expect the Hilton. Staff are super friendly and very helpful, rooms are reasonable in size and condition and now all have flat screen TV's, the towels need changing and the bathrooms a bit of renovating but for the price you can't go wrong, there is even a fridge in the rooms. There is a 24hr reception so if arriving late, just let them know and they will hold your room, also a garage for an extra 5 euro per night which really is a godsend..... bit tight and narrow but is invaluable for the area. Not directly in the centre of town, a 5 -10 min walk but really not a problem.... ENJOY!
