“Wonderful View”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

This was one of my favorite hotels on our France trip. The room was beautifully decorated and we had an amazing view! Great location easy to get to all attractions. The only complaint was only a handheld shower and made for a difficult shower. Overall we would stay here again!

one of the hotels on the promenade where one can stay at a reasonable price. The sea view room was very nice although perhaps some minor renovation to be done. I remember with great pleasure the breakfast on the table on the terrace with fabulous desserts and superb croissants.
we were very good. cannes is wonderful.

We have returned to the Hotel Splendid in Cannes for the third time. Yet again they have up trumps!
The location is perfect for all parts of Cannes.
Good service and a good room.
Buffet breakfast was fine.

We were only in Cannes for an evening and chose the Splendid for its location and view. On that front, this hotel did not let us down. We overlooked the marina and were right in the thick of the action.

Unfortunately, I found the price far too high for this room. The bath was too small to bathe in and there was no way of having a shower without holding the shower head! The decor was a mish-mash of eras (although it did make us smile) and the mini-bar was empty.

Getting to our room on the 4th floor was a challenge with the tiny lift that was available, but this wasn't really a problem as long as we were the only ones trying to use it.

We didn't eat breakfast, so can't comment on the food or the service.

All-in-all, if you are looking for a basic hotel to sleep in while you party in Cannes, this is an okay option. We wanted a little more and were left a little disappointed.

Room Tip: We had room 408 which had a window that looked right out over the marina. Excellent if you want to s...

The staff was rude the air conditioning was broken and someone entered our room while we were out and used the bathroom in a chair (and I don't mean number 1) and to top it off the manager/employees blamed us and made us pay for the chair. It was the most horrifying experience ever. DO NOT STAY HERE. EVER.

GPCannes, Responsable commercial at Hotel Splendid, responded to this review, 23 August 2012
We don’t understand you complain.
Nobody, coming from outside, can get into the room without a key.
We have a way to check like all hotels in the world, all the in and out coming from your room and we can attest that nobody, except you go into your room that night.
So that’s why we have charged for the damages.
We are sorry to hear that you had a bad experience in our hotel.

The hotel splendid
Extremely rude front desk staff
Was given a key to my room but it did not work from 3 pm until the next day after 4 attempts of walking up and down the stairs to get it fixed with rude front desk staff that were unhelpful and on the next day 12 hours after check in I received a working key.
The room is clean but my room facing the street was noisy and was too bright despite the curtains.
Breakfast is expensive and not worth it.
Hotel is centrally located which is good.
But rather pay extra and stay elsewhere and receive better service.
