“Beautiful, clean, central & lovely staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

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.

Room Tip: Double check if you have the handicap suite if you're traveling in a duo that this might be weir...

We had an interesting experience with this hotel. We arrived and the door of the hotel was closed. We rang the doorbell and nobody opened. Then we found a note on the door with the phone number on it. We called there and the woman sent us code from the door and number of our room. It was unusual))
The room was not big, but it had 2 double beds and a little garden outside. If you just need to stay somewhere for a couple of nights - this hoel is a perfect choice. Location is also good.

I like my room simple if small. I am happy with older furniture and fittings as long as they are well kept or very good price - both, preferrably. I value a free, good internet connection over a rich bundle of cable TV channels.

I actually appreciate the odd surprise in how a hotel room is set up - here, the fact that bathroom and bedroom are one, with a crystal shower door and a light curtain to separate them.

If you have similar tastes, and enjoy a nice sunny balcony with a view on the castle (the official picture here on Tripadvisor actually matches the view from my room!) if not on the sea, few minutes' walk to the train station and the Croisette, and a low price to match, you will like this hotel.

And yes, staff is kind and helpful, with the personal touch that small hotels can offer.

If you drive there, leave your car at the "Vauban" public park, few hundred meters' walk.
If you get there by train, it's almost as close, few minutes if uphill.

Room Tip: South side rooms have a better view and are quiet even if they look over a fast urban road.

I rocked up late at night at the Bellevue, having got lost after a long journey, with my mum and husband in tow, all a bit exhausted. We met about 5 different members of staff in our 2 days there, all of whom were completely charming and incredibly helpful.
The hotel came under new ownership over the summer of 2012, so I would ignore reviews before then. It isn't fancy, the hot water was temperamental and the aircon variable. But the location is fantastic, the prices really reasonable (for Cannes), and the people so friendly, patient and kind that unless you are a luxury-hotel purist, I can't see why you wouldn't want to stay there and meet them. Go on, you know you want to!

Our room was nice, clean not perfect but acceptable, with a small balcony. The strange thing is that there was no division between bedroom and bathroom!
Another strange thing is that the staff sometimes is missing: we had practically to made the check-in for a guest who arrived in the afternoon, when nobody's was there!
The strengths of this small hotel are the price that's not very high (we were there at Easter), and the location, a 5 minutes walk from the Croisette.

The hotel is in a pretty good location just a few min walk to the Croisette. Stayed at the hotel during Cannes film festival and thought the hotel was O.K. I think The price should be a little lower for what you get. 200 euro a night is too much. The owner was very nice and helpful. He made it a very pleasant experience. Had a nice terrace in our room and has free wifi. I would stay there again if the room cost was much lower. I was a pleasant experience overall

I stayed three nights in May 2012 during the Cannes Film Festival. It is a cheap hotel by Cannes standards, but convenient. I think the management must have changed since the earlier negative reviews. My room was reasonably clean and the little bathroom was modern and pleasant. The staff are indeed not always there, but it's a cheap hotel (for Cannes). They were pleasant and helpful. I was pretty satisfied.

Dear Festivalier,

Thank you very much for helping us to improve our quality with your comment.
Yes the Hotel Bellevue in Cannes has a new management from very short (1 week) and yes the cleaning is one of our priority.
We hope to have another chance to show you the upgrades that the hotel and the guests deserves.
Sincerly
