    « A good hotel »

    We spent 8 days in this hotel. At first we were given a room overlooking the street . We have problems with sleep so we asked for a room overlooking the yard.The receptionist Sonia was very kind and friendly and gave us a good room a short time later.We were very grateful to her and during our stay in the hotel she was so helpful and obliging!.The room and the bathroom were always clean as well as the towels.Breakfast was good. In this hotel we felt like at home Next year we are going to Juan Les Pins and stay in this lovely hotel.

    « Very Clean lovely staff »

    I really enjoyed the stay at this Hotel. The staff were very friendly with great advise about the area. There is also a parking space although be sure to let staff know you will arrive by car. The Entire Hotel is spotless from the entry, lift, rooms, bathrooms and breakfast area. The breakfast is simple although very nice. A great location to experience the pretty town centre of Juan les Pins

    « Excellent staff »

    The hotel was lovely and clean, ideally located. All staff friendly. Sonia went over and above when I was taken ill and had to stay on an extra 2 days, nothing was too much trouble, Her compassion was very much appreciated.

    « Exactly as we expected »

    Booked through easy jet, information on rooms spot on. Room very clean, breakfast as expected and ok for me. Reception staff very helpful. Room was ample big enough for the 2 of us. The only thing i missed was not having a mini fridge in the standard room. Just a suggestion felt that there was enough room for a fridge to be placed in the room and perhaps hotel should provide them to all rooms.

    « Pay more get more »

    Small hotel well positioned for train station and beach . We booked a superior room but none were available so accepted free breakfast for duration of our stay.Breakfast offering poor. Rooms are small with en suite bath shower and small balcony. rear rooms overlook car park front rooms overlook street, best for interest and people watching. staff friendly and helpful. used the train to visit monaco,old antibe and ville franche su- mer all worth a visit.

    « Great location!!!! »

    We read reviews about BWA hotel before booking. I think we did well. The location is great, few mins away from beach and restaurants, also train station!!! We popped to the beach any time and the train station whenever we wanted to visit other towns, very convenient!!! Breakfast was also good although we had to pay extra, not included in room charge. Breakfast is highly recommended as well as BWA hotel. Free wifi, fully air conditioned room, hair dryer and a safe are available in the room. Also we enjoyed relaxing time in the balcony in our room. The staff are friendly!

    « Checked into an occupied room »

    As someone who works in the hotel industry too, I think you should know about this situation . I arrived for check in on August 14 the 2016 at 4pm , after the check in process I was given the key to 302 or 308 I believe but found that it was still actually occupied with the current guest asleep in the bed . I came back down to the reception and the attendant on duty was surprised and didn't know why this was . She apologized and called the room and spoke to the guest , while my French is not what it used to be , I understood her telling him he should have left earlier in the day at 10 am etc and why was he still there. I asked for another vacant room but she said there were no more as they were sold out . She asked me to come back in an hour , which I did at 5.15 pm . However if the room showed VC in your system and it was still physically occupied then someone internally did not report this departure correctly to the desk or it was checked out incorrectly without verifying if it was actually VD , how does this sort of thing happen? By today's standards this is a great security risk to both the guest who was still inside asleep and the one trying to check in and you need to review basic room occupancy procedures to ensure this does not happen again . I was offered a comp breakfast as compensation, but nothing like a breakfast coupon was ever delivered to my room or left under the door etc so follow through was lacking However the room was very clean and after the broken shower hose was replaced which appeared to be still in the process of being repaired due to the call from the desk10 minutes after to advise me the tech was still on his way , all was well. The comp bottle of water was nice but no refills were provided as is usual in the USA when its on the nightstand. Perhaps two washcloths in the bathroom would be nice too .The water pressure was good in the shower though , but that half glass panel doesn't keep the floor dry or easy to clean up . As a convenience for guests it's best to charge taxes and municipal fees etc at the time of booking rather than at the check out time months later ,I am sure it's not hard to set that up with your booking engines too Thanks

    « Great Stay »

    Superb hotel only yards from the beach and all amenities. Good quality bedding and linen. Nice too to have tea/coffee tray in the room, along with bottled water. Decent toiletries too. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Nothing too much trouble. When we needed extra milk etc reception were happy to oblige. Lovely quiet rooms too with pleasant decor. Good value for money.

    « A decent hotel »

    Stayed in this hotel for business for 4 nights, the staff was very nice, room was clean and the size was ok for 1 person. The breakfast was very simple and no lots of selections. The location is very good and close to many restaurants, bars and the beach. The hotel has a private parking for 15eur/day but it was always full when we arrived and we had to park outside, and we've managed to find a parking near by in the street.

    « Best place to stay. »

    Very friendly and kind staff. convenient to beach and train station. Clean rooms. Family friendly. All the staff were speaking English. Their price is very fair compare to other places. I extremely recommend this place. My children and I had great time there.

    « Excellent location, average breakfast »

    Been to the area before but never stayed in this hotel before. The hotel staff are friendly, it's clean, good bathroom however we had problems with our safe and had to get the engineer to come and fix it. The breakfast was average, hardly had any hot menu choices available and the noise is heard through the bedroom window as we were on the 1st floor. But the location is excellent, in between both the train station and the beach.

    « "Simple but very ok" »

    Hotel is easy to find close to the beach,main restaurant street in this place, we easly found parkind outside hotel but it also has it own parking to pay 15 euros per day. Rooms are not big but everything is very clean and satisfactory. Staff is very friendly, nice and polite. Price very ok for french riviera. So good choice for stay at Cote d Azur and not to spend to much money.

    « Very convenient »

    This was an excellent place to stay for our recent visit to Cannes. As the film festival was on, Cannes was extremely busy and very expensive.This hotel was very reasonably priced and only a couple of hundred yards from the station with regular trains to Cannes and all along the coast. Breakfast at 10 euros per person was excellent value for money. Would definitely stay again.

    « Easy to reach and a few parking spaces »

    The rooms are well equipped and very clean. The reseptionists are helpful and ready to asisst. Overall it is a proper hotel and good value for your money. All services are within walking distance and that includes most the resturants.

    « Good, not very good »

    Clean well-appointed rooms, very friendly and helpful reception staff, nice working lift, clean public toilet. But! The breakfast was very poor, not up to normal French standard. The good news is that they charge you the room without breakfast so easy to eat elsewhere. I recommend a little place called "Juan-les-pains" (sic) a few doors towards the beach. Strangely Tripadvisor has not heard of it. A fire alarm woke me: apparently caused by poor kitchen ventilation. Not good. Free wifi. Grrrrrr. It worked some times for my friends, never for me on two devices, and that meant I had to pay for Vodafone £3 a day for Internet access. In this day and age good Wi-Fi is a must, very poor Wi-Fi is an annoyance. They got the bill wrong. That has happened at my last four stays at four different hotels. Grrrrrr. The entrance to the car park is designed for cars at least 9 inches less wide than most modern cars, so be prepared for the odd scrape or two to the car's bodywork. Quite a good hotel, but be warned!

    « Great Location, Great Value Hotel. »

    A perfectly situated Hotel only 2 minutes walk to the railway station and 3 minutes to the beach. There are a variety of shops and restaurants close by and a large Casino supermarket only a few minutes away. The rooms are small but very clean and well decorated. There is an excellent daily service with sheets and towels changed regularly. The bathroom was also small but was also spotlessly clean and everything worked as it should. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms have good facilities. Ours had a safe, fridge and coffee maker as well as a small balcony. The reception staff were extremely pleasant and helpful at all times with good local knowledge. No negatives at all ? a great value Hotel that would be our automatic choice were we to return to Juan Les Pins.

    « A very nice hotel »

    Great location. Nearby the beach, train station, stores, bakery, pharmacy etc. Very nice and helpfull staff. Clean room. They even changed towels although we only stayed for two nights. Nice balcony. We will most certainly choose this hotel the next time we visit Juan les Pins.

    « Excellent budget hotel in expensive location »

    Great location, 100m from the train station & only a few minutes walk to the beach. The Reception staff were always friendly and helpful. Room ok size with a comfortable bed and a balcony. Really clean too! Good sized bathroom with a bath. There is a hairdryer although it's not very powerful. There were nice products in bathroom and tea/coffee facilities are provided & replenished daily. Extra milk is available from reception. We'd recommend & will use again.

    « Absolutely perfect »

    Wonderful hotel with unbeatable location. Everything you need is near by and itis e min walk to the beach. Rooms are in the smaller side but have every comfort necessary and the native closets mean you can give away all the things you do not neat..Worth spending a few euro extra and getting the upgraded rooms with the fridge and coffee machine.. Beds are super comfortable and the staff is very very friendly

    « Very satisfactory stay »

    Stayed at the Astoria from Wed 9th September for one week. The hotel is situated 150 metres from the railway station and 200 metres from the promenade/beach. The Astoria is located in a pleasant side street. The hotel does not offer many facilities - it has a foyer, a small lounge/bar area and a pleasant breakfast bar and a lift leading to the rooms. It really doen't need anything else with the beach, bars and restaurants at close hand. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were fine with a very nice bathroom. Tip -if your room does not come with a fridge invest in one at 8 euros per day so that you can enjoy a nice glass of wine and a snack on your balcony. We enjoyed the breakfasts - I particularly liked the scrambled eggs and small sausages as well as the continental breakfast items. Juan Les Pins is quite small and a lot of the beachfront is taken over by private concerns - sunloungers and bar during the day that become restaurants at night. There are public beaches to both the left and right of the promenade. It was fairly quiet during our week. We used trains to visit Monaco ( a bit disappointing as there was a lot of maintenance work going on around the harbour and did involve a lot of walking), Nice and Cannes (Do take le petit train (10 euros) for a fabulous guided tour around the front and the highest point in Cannes. We also took the train to Antibes - the old quarter, the harbour and raised sea wall are a must! Tip -always remember to stamp your ticket in the yellow ticket machine before boarding for each train journey. We took the advice from a previous review and walked to a bus stop from Terminal One. The review mentioned the 200 bus but we got the 23 to St Laurent Du Var station. Coming back we got the 52 bus that stopped opposite Terminal One. Please note, don't attempt this way unless you are travelling light! Overall, a very reasonably priced and nice hotel in a lovely resort!

    « Cheap & Cheerful »

    The best thing about this hotel is the location. We were a group of 10 friends looking for central base to use for various trips. Astoria is 2 mins walk to beach and 2 min walk to train station (where you can get direct trains to Nice, Cannes & Monaco). Juan Les Pins is your typical no frills French Riviera location. Antibes is approx. 15-20 min walk away but worth the visit. Lots of good cafés and bars (great pizza place across the road from hotel). The beach bars/restaurants are a must for a boozy afternoon and Moorea beach bar is a great way to spend an afternoon. Staff all very friendly in the hotel and rooms clean if a little dated

    « Great location for your French Riviera holiday »

    Very impressed by this hotel. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are nice. Location is excellent. This was our first visit to the Cote d'Azur and were not sure what to expect. We got a good deal on the hotel (€500 for 6 nights) so we were off to a good start. The hotel is easy to find from the bus stop and literally 40 seconds walk from the train station. It's on a street that leads down to the beach, less than a minute in the other direction. We got room 501 which faced the rear of the hotel meaning there was no noise from traffic. (Room 502 would be the same and I think 507 and 508 should be rear facing too). The bed is good, large and quite comfy. There's a tv, coffee machine and a fridge. A nice touch is the fact that the fridge is stocked with a large bottle of water and a couple of juices every day for free. Coffee was nice and restocked every day for free too. Bathroom is very nice with a great shower. There's a nice balcony with a retractable sunshade if you fancy sitting out too. We didn't get any breakfasts in the hotel, but there seemed to be a nice selection of food available if that's what you want. Instead we went to the cafe across the street for pastry's and found some other bakery's for fresh bread and sandwiches. Overall we were very happy with the hotel and would recommend it. We ended up sun bathing on the beach for a couple of days (these are quite small and packed so get there early) and touring around the area for the other days. Antibes is within walking distance and very nice to visit. The train service is excellent so a day trip to Monaco, Nice and Cannes should be done, as well as a trip to Ventimiglia in Italy which is worth a look too.

    « Good value »

    Good location, simple, and tidy rooms. Good value for money and very close to bars, restaurants and beach. Staff were helpful with sorting out the rooms and making sure we had a taxi to head back to the airport on time.

    « Terrible service but great location! »

    This hotel did what it needed to do. Clean, spacious rooms with a nice balcony and VERY close to the beach. There are lots of local amenities close by, including the train station and most people speak good English. The staff at the hotel were quite unaccommodating and rude. There was a problem with one of our parties bookings and the receptionist was very unhelpful leading to an hour of phone calls to sort the problem out. Additionally the breakfast was not good with lots of food and cutlery running out and not being replenished. We did enjoy your stay at the hotel and would possibly stay again due to the great location!

    « Good value »

    We had stayed at this hotel before a number of years ago and just wanted a base for 2 nights before moving on elsewhere. We got a good Web deal on the price and the hotel lived up to our expectations for its 3 stars. The room had everything we needed including a good shower and very comfortable bed, clean linen and air conditioning. The only thing I'd mark it down on was the strange plastic cups for tea and coffee. It wouldn't be too much to ask for proper china or pottery mugs. But with so many great cafes on the doorstep who's going to drink nescafe in the room? As with other reviewers we found the welcome a bit odd - and very different from our last visit. On arrival to drop off our cases the receptionist was cheerful and friendly. A few hours later the same lady was almost monosyllabic and not at all friendly. Was this because of the presence of an older gentleman (the owner?) behind reception with whom she continued her conversation all the time whilst checking us in? This gentleman was quite rude when I asked for my Best Western loyalty points. Because I had booked on Expedia he was unable to do it - which was fine with me but I didn't need a lecture on why I should not use Expedia but should book direct with the hotel. The other receptionist was surly and uncommunicative and when we checked out she continued with another piece of work on her computer for several minutes before turning her attention to our bill. We were the only people in reception at the time and no apology or explanation was offered for this. It didn't spoil our holiday and if you want a good room at a good price then this hotel is worth considering - but I suspect a change of ownership since our last visit has resulted in a poorer welcome from its staff.

    « Nice place with pleasent stuff »

    I stayed there for 2 weeks and I have to say this is very nice place. Maybe its not furnished in very modern style ans it depenwnds what you really expect. For me the most important is to have a clean room, with helpful stuff and within the walking distance to the points of interest and I got it all! Room quite basic, but all what I would expect. TV, free wifi, tea maker,a balcony to smoke. I was having typical french brkfst into room every mornig ( preordered) which was served by very nice lady. Definetely I recommend the place!!!

    « Good value for money and excellent location »

    This hotel is ideally located near Juan les pins train station so is a great place to stay if you're planning on hopping on a train and exploring other towns and cities along the French Riviera. It is also close to Central Juan les pins, which has lots of bars and restaurants and it's also close to the beach. Despite its excellent location, the hotel was very quiet and relaxing. What more could you ask for? The rooms were clean and the balcony was nice. I opted out of the breakfast at the hotel, as you can get a cheaper breakfast from cafes on the seafront. We dropped our bags off early before check in and this was no problem at all. All in all a great stay. I must say the bar area did look a bit dated, however.

    « Disappointing! »

    This is our second time we have stayed here. The first time was pretty average. You pay for what you get. But this second time we stayed we booked two rooms as we went with friends. The air...
