“A super boutique hôtel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

We liked Villa Garbo and Nicolas, the concierge, was always extremely helpful and answered all of our questions! they recommended things to do and were always available.

It is a great boutique hotel in a very good location. However, suites are expensive and more suitable if you go with a family. as friend, my friend and I realized that we didn't need a suite and we could have saved some money.

breakfast was served and it was included and it was EXCELLENT. sometimes we were upset because wi-fi was not working and the internet in the business center was not working either. that was important for us because we needed to check the internet.

overall good experience.

What an amazing boutique hotel. Elegant, Modern and friendly all in one.
From the Owner, Guy (A true gentleman who was so helpful) to Nicolas (the restaurant expert! He knows so much about where to go) to Valerie (always laughing but so helpful) to Gypsy (amazing help in the mornings and always elegant) and finally Mario (the inventive genius who made us feel safe) all the staff are a breath of fresh air and bend over backwards to help. Rooms are spacious, quiet and beautifully decorated. Large bathroom with bath and full size shower (Suite 130).

Close to La Croisette, close to the beach, calming and thoroughly enjoyable. Didn't want to leave.
A 20 minute walk from the old town, but well worth the walk to some great restaurants.

In summary, we will without doubt be going back to stay at this hotel. It's now on our list of top 10 favourites. It was a calm oasis that we needed after our wedding and would be more than happy to tell our friends, STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!!!

Merci to all at Villa Garbo for making the first leg of our honeymoon, so so special.

Room Tip: Room 330 has a whole rooftop terrace to itself, but obviously would cost the most.

It was my first stay there, and from the time we walked in to the time we left we were treated brilliantly. Nicolas and tthe other managers on duty (sorry forgot the names) were fantastic and sorted out tables at the nicest places to eat, and made sure that we lacked no comfort
I will be back there as the location is perfect ...shopping , places to eat and the sea a few minutes walk away. The only downside....no pool, and when it is hot , well you would like to take a dip :-)

We are thoroughly enjoying our stay at this lovely boutique hotel. The rooms are stylishly decorated and spacious, the personal touch from efficient and helpful staff sets this property apart. The hotel is centrally located, close to shopping and the beach. The evening complimentary cocktails adds a particularly nice touch.
