“Bargain Gem”
Reviewed January 2, 2008

I agree with all of the other reviews. Appia is on a quiet little alley (bit difficult to find at first) that is right behind the main shopping streets and a short stroll to the beach. We chuckled to ourselves at the thought of what others were paying to stay in a more 'American' hotel just steps away. The staff was friendly and it was comforting to know they were there 24/7. The room was small, especially the bathroom, but it was clean. The neon sign is a bit tacky, but I'll take a bit of tacky to get such a great deal in such a great location.

  • Liked — Location, location, location for a great price. (walking distance to train station, shopping, beach)
  • Disliked — Bathroom was tiny, didn't have internet access.

Booked this for two nights, travelling on my own. It is a great inexpensive centrally located little hotel. My room was small but very clean, sheets towels and bathroom. The reception staff are very friendly and speak English and man the reception 24hours.
On a budget in an expensive area then this is well worth staying at, no luxury but good value for money

  • Liked — very clean
  • Disliked — a liitle jaded a coat of pain to brighten it up would help

I stayed at the Hotel Appia for only one night, but wish it was for longer. It is tucked away in a quiet street, pretty much behind the main shopping street. Therefore the location is ideal, only a few minutes walk from the train station and a few minutes to the amazing beach.

The room was quite tight for size, but the staff were very friendly (spoke good english) and the cleanliness sparkling! Despite only having two stars (im not sure why), it was a nicer hotel than some 3-4 stars I have been in. The price is part of this - i only paid £36 for the double room, and the location is ideal for a relaxing stay which is close to all the action.

I would definately recommend this hotel! the only thing that is a wee bit off putting is the flashing neon sign out the front! I must stress, however, that this is not reflective of the quality of this hotel.

  • Liked — location, value and relaxing atmosphere!
  • Disliked — neon sign out front!
  • Tips/Secrets — book it!

This little hotel is in a fantastic location just behind the Rue d'Antibes. The rooms were basic but clean. Decent size, good wardrobe space. Bathroom was clean with shower cubicle, no bath. Although obviously this type of hotel is aimed at more the budget traveller it had everything we needed. More importantly the staff were lovely and very helpful. We had decided on this hotel for location only and when we went to stay at Le Meridien Beach Plaza in Monte Carlo a few days later we both wished we were back in Cannes as the staff at Le Meridien were rude. They could have learned something from the Appia. There is no pool or anything but you are only a 5 minute walk from Place D'anglais and the beach. Cannes was a beautiful place and we enjoyed out stay at the Appia. The air conditioning was a lifesaver and it was very good. Would definately stay again.
