Ideal Sejour is a small, French type hotel with about 15 guest rooms in a beautiful old building on the hills of Cannes. With the car it might seem that it´s quite far from the city centre, but by foot it´s just about 10-15min walk from Croisette. If you arrive with a car, the hotel has it´s own parking lot, but usually there is also always parking spaces available on the streets around. Especially the street where the hotel is located is good for parking, cause even it´s narrow, the street ends in about 50m from the hotel, so there won´t be much traffic.
As I said the hotel is a lovely old building surrounded by local houses and in the backyard they have a big garden, where they serve breakfast in the sunny mornings. Reception, dining/living room and internet corner are located downstairs, on the ground floor and guest rooms facing to the garden or the road in front are on the first and the second floor. The rooms vary quite a lot, cause some has pretty modern interior and renovated bathroom and some are a bit old and shabby.
Our room was at first a little disappointment, cause we got the older one with thick, dark carpet floor, small double bed, big wooden wardrope and not yet renovated bathroom and the overall look was a bit dirty. Although the yellow walls gave light nicely and from the window we could almost see the sea far away! There were not much other equipments, but the modern flat screen tv was a nice surprise. The lack of air conditioning was not that bad even though the weather was warm, cause the room stays quite cool even during the day, if you keep the window shutters closed. Bathroom was ok, only inconvenience was that there was no shower curtain or anything to keep the bathroom floor not to get wet while taking a shower (and no floor drain either).
Walking downhill from the hotel it´s pretty easy to find the way to the centre. There is also one bus going to downtown and the nearest bus stop is in the crossroads of Avenue du Dr. Bernard and Avenue Saint-Jean. The bus runs about once in an hour, till 6pm at least on weekdays (the timetable is there at the stop). In the half way to the centre there´s the nearest supermarket with good selection of foods and drinks.
In my opinion Ideal Sejour is a good value for your money. Nice location, even if it´s not exactly in the heart of the city, friendly staff, beautiful old building and garden and lovely french neightbourhood. Absolutely worth considering!
