“Great location, for undemanding guests”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I always choose this hotel when I go to Cannes on short business trips as its location is perfect (Palais des Festivals 5 min. walk). Accommodation is modest but the staff are always helpful, the hotel clean and what’s important, the price is really reasonable (off-congress period). I don’t know about the breakfast they serve because I prefer a quick espresso and croissant in one of the zillion cafes just around the corner.
I recommend this hotel if you need it just for a good sleep.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room giving to the street - the view is much better than in rooms giving to the tin...

This hotel costs £68 a night next week after an online search. I just paid £1300 for four nights during a Cannes convention. The room rates rocket by 100s of percent during events. Room 109 was so small that I could not put open my suitcase on the floor and had to share the bed with it. Friendly reception. At £68 a night thos would be a good 3 star deal for central Cannes. At the rate I paid it was the dreadful value. Avoid Cannes during conventions.

Cannes is obviously expensive but this Best Western is affordable and only a couple of minutes from the Croisette. The rooms are basic but clean enough, the staff are nice and helpful. It is better to avoid the rooms that face the main road but it is not too noisy. There is no possibility to park unless you go to the nearby parking space which is quite expensive but that's typical of a crowded town such as Cannes...

The hotel is pretty standard for a Best Western which is definitely not a bad thing. Good size room, nice big bathroom.

Breakfast was 15 euro a person, so we skipped that and ate at Paul every morning. Great place for pastries and coffee and just a few blocks away.

Other than that no complaints. The hotel is located in a good area for shopping and restaurants, and it is not far from the beach.

The location of Best Western Universe is amazing! It is located right on the main shopping street. The hotel is very close to the beach, train station, restaurants, etc. The standard double room was very basic. The bed was pretty comfortable, but the pillows were so thin it was almost impossible to sleep! The wi-fi connection was great (our room was on the 4th floor). The bathroom was clean and big enough. The air conditioner didn't work properly. The furniture in the room definitely needs some upgrade!

very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, although the room maid sometime forgot to leave fresh towels; excellent location right in the heart of Cannes on Rue D'Antibes, which is THE shopping street in Cannes. Only a few blocks to Croisette and the beach. Hotel has cooperation with a beach, where there is a real good discount on beds and umbrella and very affordable drinks (especially for Cannes). Easy to reach when you arrive by train or airport bus.
