We originally intended to stay here for only six nights, but we loved it so much that we extended to seven. Forget the expensive large hotels on the Croisette – this is THE place to stay in Cannes. I am still amazed at the value of this hotel. We paid just slightly over €100 per night – and I would have honestly paid twice that for what you get.

It is located only two blocks off the Croisette and is directly on Rue d'Antibes (one of the main shopping streets). It is an easy walk from/to the train station, and a slightly longer walk down to the bus station near the Hotel du Ville. It gives you easy walking access to tons of shops, restaurants, beaches.

The service was excellent – in particular the lovely man who worked the morning shift at the reception desk. Unfortunately, I don’t remember his name – but he always remembered ours.

The rooms are large (we had one of the smallest rooms, and it was still very large – so I can only imagine how large the other rooms are) and well decorated in a cool, glam style with neutral colours and splashes of pink. We have stayed in a lot of boutique hotels where the pictures online look great but in person the décor is cheap and poorly maintained – this hotel is NOT like that. The furnishings were all of high quality and well cared for. The bathroom is a hoot, all shiny black stone with a neon pink light shining down on the bathtub/shower. We didn’t pay for a room with a balcony, but we were fortunate to be given a room on the third floor of the pool side of the hotel where the rooms have little tiny balconies – not big enough for a lounge chair but big enough to step out onto. The view over the pool is lovely – so I strongly recommend requesting a room on the pool side rather than the street side. It is probably also a lot quieter. Unlike other hotels, we never had any problem with street noise or with noise coming from the adjoining rooms.

We were glad that we didn’t spend the money for a bigger room with a balcony. The smallest room is plenty big, and you don’t really need the balcony because you can use the pool area for the same purpose.

Our favourite feature of the hotel was the pool area. The pool appears small, but once you get in it you realize it is plenty large. The hotel doesn’t have many rooms – and most people are out and about during the day – so we had plenty of time in the pool by ourselves. There are chairs for sunbathing next to the pool – and in a raised area next to the pool there are three sets of chairs with umbrellas where you can sit and talk or read – and receive bar service. We spent a lot of time out there reading and drinking wine!

The free Wi-Fi worked fine – though having to repeatedly login can be a chore.

We never ate the breakfast or dinner - so I can’t comment on that. I do highly recommend L’Art du Pain for breakfast-on-the-go – a little patisserie on Rue Jean Jaures on the northeast side of a lovely market – and conveniently on the way to the train station.

We only had two minor complaints: (1) One night, the air conditioning (which had otherwise worked great) stopped working – and we had an unpleasant night’s sleep. To the hotel’s credit, this was corrected by the next evening and we had no further problems. One of the hotel employees said that the engine had fallen off of the air conditioner?! (2) Although the bathroom is great, the toilet is immediately on your left when you enter and sort of sticks out so that the door barely brushes against it – which means it is impossible to open or close the door if someone is sitting on the toilet. That is fine for one person but not optimal for two. I don’t know if other rooms in the hotel are like that.

Cannes is a great base for day trips as long as the railway employees aren’t on strike. We took day trips to Antibes, St Paul de Vence, Nice, and Monaco.

This hotel is fantastic. Beautiful decoration and very friendly staff. The room was very clean and had a brilliant bathroom which added to the whole experience. Despite it's location on the Rue d'Antibes the windows kept the sound out. The air-con worked well, the only downside was the bed was two mattresses put together. Everything else more than made up for this though.
Definitely a couples hotel, lovely!

Thought the reviews were too good to be true but they aren't. Snagged the Canberra 2 days before the big MIDEM conference (they must have had a cancellation).

The beds are great - comfy mattresses up to US standards. Rooms are modern/contemporary design and tastefully decorated. The walls are well insulated and traffic noise not bad at all considering you're on a main shopping street.

The location is on the Rue d'Antibes - the main shopping street parallel and set back from the beach. The beach is a 2 minute walk, the Palais de Festivals no less than 10 minutes.

Internet WiFi access while slow is free and does work.

Service is where they excel. I called for an iron -- within 2 minutes 2 people arrived carrying an iron and ironing board. Small issues were seamlessly dealt with. There was never any line at the front desk. I would stay here again - I should be writing a bad review so no one discovers this gem of a hotel; otherwise I'll never be able to get a reservation there next time I visit Cannes.

We chose Le Canberra for part of our honeymoon and we weren't disappointed. The rooms are clean, elegant and modern. The ceilings are high and they have nice quiet air-con. The hotel is located on the main shopping street (Rue d'Antibes) and was glad our room was on the quieter seaward side. That said, the windows are very well soundproofed. The pool is in a pretty garden and although it's small, it's heated and it wasn't particularly busy. We found the hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Our only gripe was with the breakfast staff, who though friendly, are quite busy and tended to forget our orders, and a surly barman, but these were minor issues.
