Myself & partner booked to stay at this hotel, for 8 nights - this was a big mistake! IF you are even contemplating booking this hotel, bear in mind that it is purely & simply a BUSINESS HOTEL, suitable for a 1 night / 2 nights stay maximum!
The rooms are extremely SMALL, consisting ( in our rooms case ) of two small SINGLE ( smaller in size than a normal single bed) beds, pushed together. The laughable size bathroom, is tiny, you can just about get to the the toilet that is wedged in between the shower & the wall! The shower, is like a capsule, you couldn't even swing a rat in it, let alone swing a cat in it ( I don't suggest you do this ...of course! :) ) So unless you are SUPER SKINNY, it is hard to get into between the 2 sliding doors!
In the bedroom, apart from the beds, there is a small wardrobe, In my opinion not enough for 2 peoples clothes. There is a work station, that is just about wide enough to take a laptop, above it on a shelf is a kettle to make Tea & coffee etc. There isn't a FRIDGE, or a SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX in the room, safety deposit boxes are in a room off the reception area, small in size & they charge 3 euros per day for the privileage!
There is a pool, that is fairly clean, but it's not huge. Mornings are less busy with people than the afternoons.
There is breakfast in the restaurant which is just off the reception area, which is self service & a standard continental style.
On our first nights stay after coming back to the hotel after 12, we had to wait to be buzzed in as they close the gates after that time. We got to our room, & on further inspection, after pulling the covers back, we discovered that 1 of the beds was broken! My partner went down to the reception to complain & initially the receptionist just shrugged his shoulders and said " what can I do about it at this time of night night " IN A VERY SURLY MANNER! ? when he realised that we were staying for more than 1 night, he gave us a key to another room ( only after my partner insisted he change our room) had the hotel been fullly booked that night one of us would have had to sleep on a broken bed ( which is unacceptable, bearing in mind we were paying for the room) It took us an hour to move all of our things to the other room, & put them all away , which meant we didn't get to sleep until after 2am! ( not great on your first night! when you were up very early the previous day for your flight to Cannes!)
Although the reception staff speak English, their attitude leaves a lot to be desired, I think that they were taught at the school of " Just pay up & shut up" Guests should be treated a lot better, & management should come on Tripadvisor & read previous guests comments. if they did that then perhaps that would improve 1) Their attitude 2) The standard of the hotel.
This hotel is NOT of the same standard as ' Travel lodge & 'Premier inn' in the U.K, despite what another reviewer said, in my opinion this hotel is of a lower standard. Pay a bit more money & look for a better hotel in Cannes, & your stay will be far more enjoyable in my opinion.
Will we be returning to this hotel.....NO definately NOT! I have stayed in business hotels, in Athens recently & all over India, & the standard was far superior to this hotel!
