“C'est Bon! Best hotel in Europe!”
Reviewed 11 January 2009

This is an amazingly well located, great value hotel, that has been very nicely rennovated, to give you a luxury hotel feel, in a classy location, without the price tag. Don't be fooled by the amount of "stars" it has. I've realised from traveling the world, that this means virtually nothing. The reason it doesn't have many stars is because it doesn't have facilities like a swimming pool with swim up bar, or a rooftop gym and helipad, but who goes on holiday for that anyway!? Get outside! It's only 1 street from the beach and some rooms have nice sea views. The hotel is located in a period building, on the edge of the old part of town and a short walk from the train station as well. There are great restaurants and cafes everywhere and there's a buzz all around, but the beautifull rooms are very quiet with soundproofed windows which really work. You are right in the midle of everything. We went to explore the Cote' D'Azur and this was the perfect base, a day trip to Monaco etc is so easy from here and at then end of the day returning to Cannes for a late dinner in the relaxed back streets is great. Only downside, like other reviews have said is the lack of a lift, however this is understandable in a compact hotel in the old town. Staff were great and spoke English fluently. This is easily one of the best, most surprising hotel experiences I've had anywhere! Ce'tait Fantastic!

It is located just two blocks from the ocean drive and the Exposition Center of Cannes were all the events are held.

The Hotel is very new and confortable, friendly staff and very nice rooms.
The only disadvantage is the lack of an elevator, so you have to use stairs to get to the rooms.

If you don't mind the stair you will have a great deal in confort, location and price.

six of us are only back from cannes and we stayed in le mistral our first impressions were its very small...but as we were taken to our rooms they were still very small but they were very clean and very modern..the bathroom was fresh and funky..the breakfasts were 9euros..but to be honest all we got was some crusty bread and coffee...so head into town for a cheaper version...the location was fab just a minute stroll to the beach and shops...and if you get a top floor room you get a sea view....the hotel is super friendly and spoke great english..we are all aged between 27 and 37 and we had a blast great weather great food and a fab hotel...would recomend it....but not to anyone with wheelchairs as there was no lifts we had to climb to the 4th floor with bags...but other than that we are home with great legs from all the climbing...and would defo go back...
