My two sisters, my brother, and I travel on a "Siblings Tour" each January, it's a tradition we have kept up for years. This January we decided on a bit of luxury to escape recession/depression ridden Ireland, and spent a long weekend here last week.
We got a great deal with Hotels.com. which amounted to two double suites for 80Euro per night for each suite!! Fantastic. The suites had two double bedrooms, with a kitchen and bathroom in each room, which were interconnected, and two small terraces. Amazing space for the price! However the deal we got had a no cancellation policy, so we just HAD to get there or lose it all!
I have to say the place was spotlessly clean, I really like a place to be clean (don't we all?), but this place was immaculate. Our rooms overlooked the pool area, as the street side rooms were being refurbished. That was good, because I would say the street side rooms are a bit noisy. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were great. The kitchens are fully equipped with cutlery, plates, glasses etc. and a full sized fridge and dishwasher! The bathroom included toiletries and towels replaced every day. Free internet access is available in the rooms also. We did not need to use the AC, but did use the system for heating late at night, and it was very effective. Overall the rooms were very well equipped.
The location for us was perfect, being a few minutes walk to the sea front. However, if you are going to attend anything at the Convention end of Cannes it takes a good 15-20 minute stroll along the Croisette to get there. A lovely walk by the way, but if you are in a hurry you can hop on the no.8 bus that goes up and down the Croisette, or a taxi costs 8Euro. Just to note, we found it hard to hail a cab on the street, the taxis do not seem to cruise around much, so you may have to book one through the hotel, or go to the taxi rank. And another note, we got the express bus from Nice Airport to the Hotel de Ville in Cannes. It cost 26euro return and the journey took about 40 minutes on the tolled expressway. The bus is just outside the arrivals hall.
In the opposite direction to the sea, is Rue D'Antibes which is the major shopping area, and you can shop till you drop. Also, the train station is a ten minute walk away if you want to branch out from Cannes. Within walking distance (the Convention end of Cannes) is the Marche Forville, and if you are going to Cannes you really should visit this market. It alternates between antiques/memorabilia and food/fruit/veg. The food market is absolutely amazing. Go see it.
The front desk staff (Audrey and Vanessa, that's you!!), were very friendly and welcoming, with a great sense of humour. It is so important to have a friendly face when going to a hotel, and it is so true that first impressions are lasting!
Honestly, I could not fault anything about this hotel, and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Cannes who likes spacious rooms, good location and cleanliness. And you can make your own breakfast/snacks with a visit to the little mini market around the corner. Perfect!
Rooms overlooking the pool are quieter.
