“Palais Excelsior- good base from which to explore Cannes”
Reviewed August 6, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

As the last review was in 2013 we were a little apprehensive, but the photos and comments matched with our desires for an apartment in Cannes having stayed the previous year in an Hotel. The apartment was exactly as described on Tripadvisor and the review submitted in March 2012. In addition, the owner Steve was very responsive to questions and we had no logistical issues.
The balcony was ideal for breakfast and evening drinks, with a good sea view. There is one neighbouring building that breaks the panorama, but importantly the view of the impressive fireworks display is not interrupted. Easy routes downhill to sea front, bus and rail stations. On returning to apartment it was nice to have a lift serving the building.
Absence of air con in this historic building only became noticeable on the hottest day, 33 degC.
We would recommend taking the train to Monaco for a great day out.
We were let down by taxis at time of check out, but found that there is a half hourly express coach service to Nice airport from the bus station, (air con and half the cost of a taxi. Route no. 210).

“Simply amazing!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Our stay was really amazing. The flat has been beautifully decorated, it has a lot of natural light and is very contemporary. It is spacious and you really feel at home.

The flat is located less than 10 minutes walk from the city center. Excellent location and you can walk everywhere.

The owners are lovely and very welcoming. They were there to welcome us although we arrived on a Sunday evening! They had a folder with lots of tips about Cannes and the area, suggestions of restaurants etc. They also checked on us, to see if everything was ok.

I will definitely go back on my next trip to Cannes!

“Fantastic, stylish apartment close to Cannes port”
Reviewed March 13, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

people found this review helpful

We had a lovely stay at the Palais Excelsior with our children but you could easily stay here as a couple or with friends and family. The second floor stylish apartment is in a white washed 19th century traditional French building with gated entrance. You open the doors from the lounge onto great views of the sea and port. It is spacious and light, with high ceilings, two decent sized bedrooms and a big sofabed in the lounge-dining area. The beds are really comfy and even the kids slept well. There's a separate bathroom and then a shower and washbasin in the second bedroom. Importantly for us, it was only a short walk to the excellent market, which is open 6 days a week, and then on to the sandy beach, restaurants, bars and designer shops along the seafront. It's owners are incredibly helpful and friendly and we had a very relaxing stay. Cannes is a really lovely town with pretty buildings, chic port area and great places to eat or to sit and watch the world while sipping a glass of rose, so this is a great place to base yourself. And there are lots of places to visit in the surrounding area along the coast if you want to go further afield. We loved it and plan to go back.
