This is a family-run hotel in the heart of Cannes. We stayed here and enjoyed the quaint, French Provence-style decor, outdoor pool and its proximity to the beach, restaurants and shopping. The hotel employees are courteous and accommodating. Plus, with wi-fi we were able to stay in touch with family and friends in the US. We loved our time and highly recommend it to folks!

The Hotel has a lot of good things going for it - clean, central, near beaches but too many crazy rules to make it a good Hotel. Rules galore about not eating by the pool or in your room. Notices about checking out before 11 am as you check in. No interaction from owners or staff (apart from being told off). Breakfast was rationed. They only put out 3 croissants at a time - you had to be quick off the mark or wait. A poor affair for 12 euro. Be prepared to pay an extra 3euro/day for a pool towel!
Being near a busy road you did hear traffic when by the pool but the rooms were soundproofed and not a bit noisy. The aircon worked well.

Hello, thank you for your comment, we regret that no kitchen in the rooms that is why we are a hotel and not a tourist home, actually we do not accept sandwiches by the pool (you can eat it or you buy the concern is that if someone does, do not stop after that) telephone marketing as well as in rooms to prevent damage to carpets and fabrics telephone marketing as well as the arrival of ants and other insects. Regarding the buffet, there are a will with orange juice, white bread, wholemeal bread, brioche, ham, cheese, laughing cow, butter, various jams, Nutella, yogurt, corn flakes, cereal, fruit salad and everything it at will. The check out is 11 am the day of departure
best regards

Stayed 1 night in the hotel, it was the most reasonable hotel we could obtain. The location was pefect, five minute walk to the beach and a few steps from the beautiful old town with lovely restaurants. The room itself was tiny but was fine for just one night. The hotel is quite old. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and given great directions and information on the surrounding area. I think it is great value for money for Cannes and grand to stay for one or two nights.

There is also a pool (albeit tiny) if you want to lounge around.

We were really well welcomed by the people managing the hotel, very nice. We got a nice room really clean. It was also easy to park the car. Furthermore the old city of Cannes is really close so we were able to walk overthere, it is really a good place that I recommend. Gil

We were directed to this small hotel /villa high on the hill overlooking Cannes by the tourist bureau. We had a small attractive room with a nice ensuite. The hotel was in a great location and we were able to park our car and walk through the older streets leading up to the church/castle on the hill and lookout then down through narrow streets with many quaint little restaurants to the harbour. The hotel had a very nice lounge area and a very nice small swimming pool in garden setting. We ordered a glass of wine by the swimming pool and the friendly owner joined us for a chat. I could have stayed much longer if we had the time. This villa/hotel was like a mini oasis just above abusy Cannes. We payed 85Euros for the night which we thought was very reasonable.
