We stayed in Hotel Univers 3 nights. When you go out the Cannes train station, you can reach hotel in 4 minutes at most on foot. In 4 minutes you reach to coast as well. So, hotel's biggest advantage is the location. It is also adjacent to Cannes's main street where you can find all brands. Secondly, employees are kind, helpful and can speak English well.
Unfortunately rest are not so positive about the hotel. There is wireless connection only in the lobby and lobby consists of two chairs only. Entrance of the hotel is so narrow. There is cable connection in the rooms. Room is very small. You can barely fit into the room as 2 people. Air condition in the room was terrible. It did not cool down, during the night I was unable to breathe and opened the window. However, we did not inform about it to the staff so I don't know how could they have handled this. Bathroom was nice. Water pressure works well. Breakfast is at the terrace and it is fair enough. Lift of the hotel is so small, old and slow. You have to wait long time to go up and down. There is a safe box in the room which is not mounted to the wall. First time I see it like that. You can easily grab it take outside. I found it strange but I don't mean that I had any security issue in the hotel. We did not encounter any negative attitude or bad surprise in the hotel.
When compared with the price, especially in terms of the internet, size of the room and air conditioning, this hotel is little bit lower than my expectation. I would easily consider raising my budget little more and pick another place, if there is another hotel in that price range. However, I am not deeply regretful to pick this place.
