The most important factor to consider about this hotel is its location. If you are in Cannes to attend a film or TV ad festival, this could be a little bit far (not that much though, and still very doable). There are closer hotels to the Croisette and Palais. But if you don't mind walking a bit (a nice 15 minute walk to the Carlton/Martinez area on the Croisette), and appreciate the hotel's reasonable rates and VERY reasonable cancelation policy, then this is an excellent hotel. It's not flashy, but the service is FANTASTIC, rooms comfortable, food good, quiet, and the pool is perfect (more on this later)..
To get up and down the hill, the hotel has a shuttle that leaves every hour. The staff is very friendly, and can help you make a reservation. The shuttle can also pick you up in town too. If you miss the shuttle, there are always nice, air conditioned Mercedes and BMW taxis in town to bring you back. The taxi drivers mostly speak English too..
What I liked most about this hotel was its pool and the superb service. The nice-sized and cool temperature pool was perfect to swim and relax after walking around town all day. I spent several afternoons lounging around the pool, and taking a refreshing swim before getting ready for dinner back in town. The pool I don't think is heated. That made the temperature just perfect for me during the hot summer days.. You can also order drinks and relax around the pool and sit in the outdoor bar. It's all very relaxing and pleasant. Very low key and quiet too, which I loved..
The second thing I loved about the hotel was the service. Everyone that I encountered who worked at the hotel was super nice and helpful to me. There was one gentlemen at the front desk who was especially nice. He was tall with brown hair. I wish I could remember his name so I would mention him here. BRAVO NOVOTEL!!!
Also the breakfast each morning was really good. First of all the breakfast area is half inside and outside near the pool. So the room is bright and nice. Second the food that the hotel prepares is perfect with great fruit, juices, croissants, yogurt, coffee, etc. It's just enough for a light, continental breakfast, with excellent/plentiful selection, which is all I wanted each morning. It doesn't seem cheap and small, like some continental breakfasts I've had in other Cannes hotels..
All in all, I felt very satisfied with what I paid vs what I got.. It's a very good, dependable, upper middle level hotel in Cannes. I would definitely stay there again. And I would recommend it to friends who don't mind the short travel time to the center of town..
