We were on a 2 week driving trip in Europe., we stayed in Cannes for 2 nights towards the end of the trip. Everyone talked about Cannes and the French Riviera, so we had to see it. But after going through the romantic road in Bavaria and staying in the Swiss Alps, Cannes was kind of a let down, it was just a larger version of South Beach in Florida. We are not the shopping type and the beach there just doesn't compare to any decent beach in Florida. However, the young couple who ran/own the Alnea hotel were incredibly helpful. They told us about the best place to go for the beach, the best restaurant for local (provencale) food, for snacks, for seafood, etc. We would probably be overwhelmed by the numerous restaurant choices. Their recommendations were right on and we know food. The hotel is right in the middle of the action, we walked to the beach, to the restaurants, to the shops and to the old town. The place was clean, had a safe, comfortable, pretty much what we were looking for. But the folks there made the biggest difference in our stay. We highly recommend the hotel.
