I stayed at the hotel 3.14 with my boyfriend for 5 nights during the first week in September. I had stayed here once before 3 years ago so knew what to expect when it came to the quirky decor which may not be to everyone's taste but I thought was funky and cool. Reading the recent reviews on trip advisor, I was quite anxious before the stay as there had been comments about tatty and tired rooms and unfriendly staff, but I can say that all the staff at the hotel were pleasant and helpful during my stay (perhaps due to the hotel being not as busy as it would be during peak season in July and August). The rooms were fairly standard, nothing too special, but it was what you can expect given the price of the room compared to others in Cannes like the Carlton or the Martinez where the rates can be extortionate.
We did not have breakfast at the hotel as we were not willing to pay 25 euros a day, but I knew from the outset that would be the case. We were happy to try different cafes every morning for a 7 euro coffee, croissant and orange juice.
We didn't spend much time in the hotel apart from sleeping in our room as we were out and about so much and this worked fine for us, however if you were wanting a hotel where you could relax in an ambient bar in the evening/chill by the pool during the day, you would perhaps find the 3.14 quite soulless. The hotel was very quiet during our stay apart from the last night when there was a private party going on, but I am unable to comment on the ambience during high season.
Overall, I think previous reviews of the hotel have been quite harsh. The 3.14 is in a great location and we got what we expected when it came to the room which was clean and tidy, despite being quite small. The price of the rooms were very reasonable by Cannes standards and I would stay here again if I was returning to Cannes in the near future.
