We chose this hotel after an extensive review of hotels in the area. We stayed for a couple of nights and were very pleased with our choice. It is a beautiful hotel, the charming facade having been preserved when the hotel was rebuilt. Our room (a junior suite) was spacious & well appointed; the bathroom included a fast hairdryer, very nice towels, dressing gowns & slippers. The only thing missing was a full-length mirror.
We parked in a side street next to the hotel which was fine for that night as the parking meter finished at 7pm and we were planning to be away within the first two hours of the next day's charging period. However, it was much more relaxing to park the car on site (this is limited so pre-booking is advised) the next day, well worth the 25 Euros to avoid the hassle!
The welcome given to us on arrival was excellent and after unpacking & showering we were ready to enjoy an aperitif. The hotel offers its guests complimentary drinks between 6pm and 8pm and we found their rose and white wines very pleasant.
The hotel has no restaurant but serves a buffet breakfast in the foyer and we were given a number of restaurant recommendations for dinner. We only had two evenings and tried two different restaurants, L'Affable and L'Antidote, both serving superb food.
The hotel was just across from the Rue d'Antibes, the principal shopping area and a short walk to La Croisette. Even though it was close to the railway line, the hotel was a haven of peace and we heard absolutely nothing.
We were told on arrival that we might experience problems with the iPad and the wifi, however, both the iPad and iPhone worked perfectly using the hotel's complimentary wifi.
I would recommend this hotel as an excellent base for exploring Cannes.
