Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. Small, classy and such a great location at the start of the main shopping street, wuth shops to die for. 5 mins walk to the beach. Get a room at the back, which have balconies overlooking the garden and pool. Staff are very efficient and pleasant. Rooms are so welk equipped with fab bathrooms and tasteful decor. Plenty of storage with a separate entrance hall. Can't speak highly enough of this genuine 4 star at a reasonable price for Cannes. Skip the breakfast though, go for room only. So many good cafes nearby, breakfast at the hotel not worth the money.
Strongly recommend this hotel, having stayed at a number of other pricier establishments in Cannes.

Nice hotel, very frendly staff, confortable and clean. Location is good, in a commertial street. Many restaurants near by, two blocks from the beach, and near the Marine.
Not expensive for what it offers.

Stayed for our 2nd time 2 months ago nice hotel, yes breakfast is nothing wonderful but French breakfast often arent if you are if you are compairing it to a British fry up.
It does the job and saves time trying to find somewhere else that will be fairly expensive as you are in the south of France
But overall enyoyed my stay will go back again

Stayed here for 4 nights recently. Hotel is well situated just 2 streets back from the seafront. Rooms and bathrooms clean and we also had a balcony overlooking the garden so nice and quiet. Car parking is available at €20 a night, which I personally think is expensive.... But then it is Cannes! Breakfast costs €18 for juice, tea or coffee and bread, so we had ours at one of several cafés along the street, where you could get the above, plus an omelette for €10.

We stayed here in March 14 when we went to visit my elderly Aunt who lives up the road opposite.

The hotel was booked through one of the discount hotel websites and included breakfast. I see from other reviews that breakfast was not what they expected but maybe the hotel has listened as we got excellent breakfasts and it was nice enough to sit outside.

The duty receptionist looks after breakfast and she just kept on coming out with food. There was fruit juice, bread. coissantes of different types, yoghurts, cereal, cold meats and cheese and scrambled eggs with bacon. The teapot only had one teabag so take your own.

The rooms were well appointed with a decent bed, sufficient storage, table and chair. We were on the road side of the hotel so working air conditioning would be an advantage. I found I could only get warm air out of our system, it is possible the chiller was held off if the outside air is too low (I work in the industry). We kept the window open at night but it was quiet and therefore ok.

The rooms have a free safe and a fridge.

The bathroom was a good size with a separate toilet. The shower was on a flexible hose from the bath and clipped on the wall, hot water can take a minute or so to arrive. Caution there is nothing to hold onto when getting in and out of the bath so take care!

We found the staff to be friendly and helpful and always greeted with a smile. The bar is located behind reception but we didnot use it. Reception was always very hot.

The hotel is located at the eastern end of the Rue d'Antibes but it is only a 10 minute walk to the sea front and 15 minutes to the Palais du Congress. There are eateries in the square opposite both French and Italian but this is Cannes so nothing is cheap especially drinks bought in bars and restaurants.

Off the square to the left is a Spar supermarket and another small supermarket beyond that if you require supplies and further down still is a Monoprix and the market. The station is 5 minutes walk from the market.

Quick tip for Cannes for a snack and a glass of wine. Head for the bus station just beyond the harbour towards the castle and there you will find a number of small cabins. We have tried most of them, they are fairly cheap, friendly and can speak enough English if your French is limited.

Room Tip: If you can get a rear room they are south facing and if high enough you might be able to see the sea...

Sun Riviera was a great experience,nice hotel, clean and cozy, the only thing we suggest is not to expend 18 euros in a breakfast buffet that fit in a box, 4 pieces of jam, when finish u have to wait for another 4 piece of whatever, 4 yogourt and 4 crepes thats and some bread, ah almost forget 4 pieces of fromage, no eggs, no beans, short, we suggest to go away to take a real breakfast, if get out of the hotel to your right there are a Cafe that serve a 10 euros english breakfast with Coffee, bread, an omelette and you will find a amazing host that will made your morning very positive, the hotel in general is good to sleep!

Room Tip: Rooms with street view are great!

This hotel is in a great location with a peaceful garden and pool. Maybe a little tired around the edges for a 4* but my room was very comfortable and well equipped. The staff were friendly and helpful but the breakfast at 16 Euros is poor - go to one of the excellent nearby cafes instead.
