In order to celebrate the New Year, my girlfriend and I decided to stay in a quiet hotel in Cannes. Unfortunately this hotel was all but quiet or even quaint. We were greeted by a grumpy receptionist who made us fill in forms that would suggest we were illegal immigrants (despite the fact that we are both EU citizens). We were then shoved into a lift that resembled a broken gas chamber, which will surely be breaking down any time soon. As we entered our superior room, very few attributes of this room appeared superior, particularly for its price (which matched that of a very formidable 4 star hotel). The floor felt as if it was only a few misplaced jumps away from caving in on the unfortunate Italian family below us, the bathroom was ice cold, and the temperature of the shower impossible to control.
Despite the few downsides, we were at least glad that this hotel was upon fast glance: quiet. It is placed on pedestrian road, and was far from most the noisy nightlife. Or so we thought. The Cannois youth (or predominantly the Italian people who seemed to have invaded Cannes for the start of 2014) seemed unable to contain their excitement about a simple date change, and were screaming well into the early hours of the morning. Would not recommend. This hotel gets one star because the bed was slightly comfortable and another star because they let us lie in a well needed extra hour in the morning.
