This is the best low-cost hotel I have ever seen.
Rooms are clean, spacious, well-equipped.
In my room, there were two single beds, a desk I could write on;
a big wardrobe. Bathroom is big, and there was a hair dryer and plenty of towels.
Everything: floors, carpets, walls, linen, curtains, bath looked very clean and new.
The heating in the rooms worked well. There was no problems with either hot or cold water in the shower.
What is especially rare for a two-star hotel is that my room was very light. You can switch the lights on in 5 different point in this room, so that the room can be perfectly lit even at night.
There was a big mirror in my room, in addition to a medium-sized mirror in the bathroom.
The window frames are renovated and there is a double glazing; they isolate perfectly sounds coming from the street.
Curtains are double, and so the bright southern sun did not awake me too early in the morning!
There is an internet and TV set, with English-speaking channel BBC world.
There is a small fridge in the room so that I could bring and store whatever food I wished. There are some basic drinks in the fridge provided by the hotel.
The hotel is within 5-minutes walk to the train station, to the bus station, the beach and yacht port, to the famous Picasso museum, and Fort Caree. There are plenty of playgrounds for children in the area.
I didn't take breakfast, and bought yogurts in the nearby supermarket intstead. (There is plenty of big and small supermarkets within 3 minutes walk.) I put the yougurts in the fridge, and this made my breakfasts for the whole week.
There is a free express bus running from Place de Gaulle (2 minutes walk from the hotel) to the industrial park Sophia Antipolis every 20 minutes. I had no problems at all to get to work!
Within a 7 minutes walk from the hotel, there is a big public swimming pool, where the Olympic Champion 2008 Alain Bernard used to train. The swimming pool is open for public, for a small fee 2 Euros.
It's a treat for those who love truly big and deep swimming pools!
The hotel is conveniently located right in the centre of Antibes, and yet my room was so thoughtfully equipped that I was not disturbed by street noises, and could easily relax in the evenings. The staff is very nice.
