“Excellent location but hotel needs updating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

The total is really well located in the city, a block back from the promenade. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very small and the hotel could do with a refresh!

We came to stay in September 2011 and were taken to what was a box room; dark and cramped. The pictures on the website was only showing the reception which was very nice, the rooms were not on par or what you would expect on entering the reception. We asked if another room was available which we were shown to. This room was three times the size so we were a bit perplexed why we were offered the other room. The drama wasn't over then as we found hairs in the bed and a bunch of hair on the toilet. The room looked like it hadn't been cleaned for 3 months. Feeling this wasnt value for money we asked for a refund to which we were told "I didn't think it would work out when I met you" from the manager. If it was going for £10 a night it would've been reasonable but the attitude of the manager let us down. We will never be back.

I liked the Anna Livia. It's very very close to La Croisette, and its very near loads of trendy bars and restaurants. The hotel is managed by Brits - very professional and well organised as you'd expect. As for the rooms, they are clean, had wifi, BUT very small. You barely have space to move around - especially if you have a large suitcase (we had 2). Also the bathroom lacked privacy. It had this sliding door which didn't completely seal it from the rest of the bedroom. Nonetheless, for the price, and considering the location, I believe this hotel is a good option.

WE LOVED THIS PLACE AND CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK TO THIS HOTEL! Cannes was our nth stop in our European trip. Having gotten used to small, cramped hotels, we were totally wowed by our apartment at Hotel Anna Livia! We spent our first hour just photographing the place - the very spacious living room (2 large sofas, plants, coffee table), the tea salon (a separate tea salon!), the dining area, the master bedroom with its own balcony and a painted ceiling (like in an italian villa), the other bedroom and the kitchen. Plus the uber spacious balcony where you can host a party for 20 people! We instantly regretted that we were only staying here for 1 night.

We were welcomed very warmly by Michael, a charming English-speaking fellow. He pointed us to all the good spots. And when we had to leave the next day, they helped us get a cab and negotiate the fare. They were the most hospitable hotel owners we encountered in our trip to Paris.

It was not too easy to find so make sure you get proper directions before you arrive. This apartment is a 1 minute walk from the actual hotel. Unfortunately, it does not have its own wifi. The wifi is only in the hotel itself. But having our own kitchen, stove, refrigerator, iron, etc. more than made up for it! And the price/value-for-money blew us away! So worth it!

this hotel made us want to stay in the room the whole day! for groups of 3 or more, i believe they'll offer you this apartment. it was such an amazing deal since we had very low expectations considering the room just cost us 90euros for 3 people.

we arrived at the lobby of the hotel which looked to be a basic inn and were met by the friendly irish owner. when he brought us to our "room" (which was a separate building from the hotel), it was one of those beautiful historic french buildings. 2 floors up was our apartment, as in, an apartment! it had 2 bedrooms, a living room, tea salon, kitchen, 2 balconies, a modern bathroom, and a powder room. they preserved some of the original finishes of the room which looked like an historic european apartment. all we did was take photos of that apartment. loved it!

it's also conveniently located since it was just a very short walk to the beach road of cannes. the only thing is that it doesn't have room service or housekeeping but who cares about that?? it's like having your own place in cannes!

i would stay in this place again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: always read guest reviews.
