Stayed at this hotel for one night in February for leisure. Overall a great hotel for Cannes and I will certainly recommend.
By looking at the map I got the impression that the hotel was far away from the beach but in fact it’s almost right on Le Croisette. There is a bus stop for the airport express right outside the hotel if you are travelling to the airport. The main bus station is not far away either and the train station is only 5 minutes walk if you would like to visit Nice or Monte Carlo.
The hotel must have been refurbished lately – the lobby is fresh with some modern arts. Very contemporary and clean. The restaurant is also new and comfortable. Breakfast is great - not a huge selection of food (if you are used to English breakfast, but for continental Europe the selection is great) but good quality. Hot items can also be prepared by request. Good start of the day!
I stay at a suite on the 8th floor. The biggest selling point of the suite is the terrace and the superb view. It is very spacious and clean, with good touch (such as orchids in room). There is a kettle for making tea and coffee. Very big bed with good quality of linen and it is very comfortable.
If I have to be very picky, the size of the bathroom is slightly smaller than I expected. However there is a shower, a bathtub, a TV and excellent guest amenities so it is more than sufficient.
A strong point of the room: it is very quiet since it’s not direct on the main road.
I would recommend booking a sea view room or a suite to treat yourself in this wonderful and chic city.
Service in this hotel, especially in the reception, is great. All the members are friendly, helpful and have a “can do” attitude.
A very good hotel. Strongly recommend! You get a feeling that you are actually living in Cannes when you stay at this hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ideally located in between the sea and the shopping artery of the most prestigious stores of Cannes, the Hôtel Barrière Le Gray d’Albion is a trendy haven of peace with a warmly atmosphere. Renovated in a contemporary style, the Hôtel Barrière Le Gray d’Albion excels at welcoming its guests in its 200 rooms and suites where you will be pampered by our teams. The hotel resembles the Cannes’ atmosphere: bright during the day and shiny at night. Discover the sunny delights in its two restaurants: taste the most subtle alliances at “La Terrasse du Gray” or typically Mediterranean flavours at the restaurant of the private beach on La Croisette. Let yourself be carried away by the Bohemian-chic ambiance of the private beach, its Summer parties, colourful cocktails and nautical activities. At any time of the day, the “Jane’s Bar” is the ideal place to meet up. And for sport sessions, enjoy the intimacy of the brand new fitness centre of the hotel. A stone’s throw away from the hotel, between the azure of the sky and the blue of the sea, be tempted by some green. Just a short walk away, you will swing on the best greens of the French Riviera. ... more less
