“Best stay in Cannes!”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

Villa Garbo is definitely the place to stay if your looking for a convenient location, 5 mins away from la croisette and for affordable price! The staff is amazing from the owner to the security guy. We spent 9 nights at Villa Garbo. I've tried two types of rooms, make sure you take the big suits since it's a small price difference and the space is double. I'll definitely stay in this hotel every time I'm in Cannes.

I highly recommend Villa Garbo to anyone traveling to Cannes. It exceeded my expectations and has left me wanting to go back! From the moment we arrived, the wonderful staff made us feel so welcomed. My friend and I arrived early in the morning and Anna was so kind in explaining what we could do around town before our room would be ready. They hurried to get our room ready, so we could check in ahead of schedule. The room was very big and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was plenty of room.
The hotel is in a wonderful location. You are minutes from the beach, restaurants and a great shopping street. The hotel staff was able to recommend and make reservations for great restaurants in the area. Everything the Villa Garbo staff suggested turned out to be an incredible experience.
I love staying in nice hotels and this hotel has been added to my list of favorites!

We came to stay at villa garbo after hearing excellent reviews on here.

I must say the service was excellent, the staff very attentive. And the whole place very clean.

We had a place on the ground floor and it was really big. I was surprised by the high ceilings and spec of it all. Really enjoyed the kitchen. Didn't use it a lot but having to ability to fill the fridge up with cold drinks was such a bonus.

Having stayed at the Carlton before in the standard rooms we felt a change to see what else was available and this was definitely better. In terms of the breakfast and the general value for money.

Our friends were all at the Martinez this year and the only thing we found a bit annoying was the walk form the front. It's not far maybe 350 metres or so, but when your drunk at night making your way back it was a bit of a chore. Still we knew this before hand and it wasn't too much a problem.

Honestly if you are thinking about taking a stay at the villa garbo I wouldn't hesitate in doing so. It's secure from passers by and only having 11 rooms in it it's very quiet.

If your budget can stretch to a garden suite at the Martinez though I'd stay there.

Excellent in all and we would recommend to anyone in all fairness. Really friendly and not budget or standard at all. Far better than the standard rooms at the Carlton in my experience.


Having the supermarket next door also a big help, if you have a family then I would suggest also staying here. Really is ideal. Just depends on what you desire and your budget.

We spent 4 nights in a lovely suite.
Delightful staff who can't do enough for you.
Very good breakfast on the terrace in glorious Cannes sunshine before heading out for days on the beach and touring. Early evening 'open bar' is an added delightful touch.

We also have just returned from a weeks stay at the Villa Garbo. Alison, the previous reviewer was there at the same time as myself, my wife and son and to be honest has wrote everything I would have done. We are going back next year and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Absolutely fantastic place and people and we miss them all as though they are our family.

Dear Guest,

We thank you very much for your great comment. We are so happy to see customers coming back and feeling as part of the family . As owners of Villa Garbo, our main goal is that our clients feel welcome like friends at home . It seems that this is the feeling you had staying with us.
Hotel business is not only about accomodation, breakfasts, design but more than anything about relationships and hospitality.

Looking forward to welcoming you back in Cannes at Villa Garbo, your second home ,

Very kind regards
Christine WELTER
