My sister and I booked a room for one night last-minute here last week (late Nov 2012) and got a fantastic off-season deal of $45 for the night. I was skeptical of the quality at this low rate, but I can say it was the nicest place we stayed over the course of 12 days in Southern France and I stayed at a 4* hotel in Cannes the week before.
First of all, the hotel is about a 10 min walk to the train station which is fantastic because it's out of the semi-sketchy area of town that surrounds the train station but is still only a stone's throw away from the port & old city center. We arrived by train and in heavy rain, so the uphill walk wasn't as pleasant as it was in the sunshine the next day, but was very doable even with large luggage. We were greeted on arrival by the nicest staff member whose name I never got, but he always had a smile and help for us throughout our stay. Our umbrellas broke in the rain on the way up, so he lent us a huge umbrella from the hotel to use any time we liked. He even gave us shortcut directions into town via a really pretty & safe passageway to the left of the hotel.
Our room was the handicap suite which was large and had a great balcony. Only odd part for a non-handicap duo traveling together was that the bathroom was open to the room, separated only by a curtain. We didn't mind and there was a separate bathroom across from our room that was at our disposal so the issue never came up. The bed was large, clean and warm. The shower had great pressure and everything in the room and hotel was spotless. Really a comfortable stay. The WiFi was also really reliable which was a great change from some of our previous stays. Our room had a balcony that faced out to the port & old town so it was beautiful to wake up to in the morning when the sun finally reappeared. The room was very quiet because it faced out to gardens behind the hotel which helped us sleep well, too.
Overall, I would love to go back to Cannes and stay at this hotel. It was a joy and very close to everything.
