    « Old hotel in good location with friendly staff »

    This is an old hotel without any particular charm. It is a pity because with a refurbishment, it could have a lot of potential. However the hotel seemed clean. Location is however very convenient, between the train station and the beach. Walking distance to anywhere in Cannes. Staff is very friendly.

    « Smelly amd horrible lobby »

    The lobby is too small. Elevators tiny and unconfortable. Furniture old and worned out. The rooms are spacy . Recently refurbished furniture vut towels old and the shower space has mildew. I did not like this hotel.

    « for location and staff only.. »

    Great location, very very helpfull staff, but what an old and smelly hotel!! The 6th floor have been upgraded but the rest of the rooms are pretty old and noisy. Horrible smell in the hotel the day we were there. In other hand, the fitness is ok and the breakfast average plus, with a rooftop atmosphere.

    « Not one of their best »

    Whilst the location of this hotel is close to shops and eateries the rooms and breakfast facilities are only 1 star. The lift is very small, if you can get it to come to your floor. The rooms vary in size and what we were given for 2 people was suitable only for 1 person. The bed filled the room and we were unable to move around it. There was only 1 very flat pillow on this bed and when asked about more were told there was none. Breakfast was also very inadequate with uncooked eggs and no service. There was also not enough room for our group. Staff was also short in supply

    « Perfect location »

    Centrally located in heart of Cannes . Easy to access shops, cafes and beach area (just few minutes by foot) The hotel is small but nice. Rooms clean and comfortable. Good service Special Offers for parking and private beach Recommend to stay in this hotel!

    « Definitely not four star rated. »

    For a hotel purported to be rated four star this was a major disappointed. Negatives include:- 1. Elevator can only carry a maximum of four persons. For a 6 level hotel it was rediculously slow. In fact it was faster to take the stairs, which should not have been necessary, particularly when our room was on level 4. 2. The wifi was inaccessible in our room for much of our night stay. 3. On the first morning when we presented ourselves for breakfast at 7.30am there was not a table setting for two persons and when one was requested it was not provided in the 20 minutes we waited. No crockery or cutlery was available for us to help ourselves. 4. The room was so small we barely had room to open our two cases. 5. Walls are not adequately soundproofed. 6. Laundry service offered was at an unrealistic high price per unit. Positives include:- 1. The central location was superb. 2. The bathroom has been modernised and was functional and clean.

    « Good location but very minimal hotel »

    I stayed here for the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity and was pleased with my accommodations, but they were nothing special. The room was tiny and the walls were paper thin - I could hear every word of what the person in the room next to me said, and I could even hear their alarm clock perfectly. The bathrooms are nice and take up about half the square footage of the room, but the bedroom is basically just large enough for a bed and a desk. The hotel staff was very friendly, and the free breakfast was quite good. It looks like they were remodeling the rooms starting on the top floor, so I think this hotel will be much nicer in the future. The beds were also very firm and the side of my body hurt in the AM from how stiff and uncomfortable the mattress was.

    « Cannes Lions 2016 was Great! »

    The Hotel is well located close to shops, beaches, restaurants, Palais des Festival and Alexandra is very professional and kind, she gave us good tips to visit the city and we will definitely come back! Also the breakfast on the 6 floor is really nice and good ;) fresh orange juice is a must

    « Good location »

    No parking for dropping off. Very narrow lift. Room was basic, clean, bed and shower were good. Staff friendly. Parking garage near station approx 1/2km away. Quiet area, close to film festival, and harbour.

    « Reasonable hotel »

    Stayed here for two days. The check Inn was pretty quick and easy. There is no place in lobby to sit or wait. The lift is narrow and old fashioned. The rooms are well maintained. Well maintained bathrooms. The breakfast was pretty ordinary with limited stuff. We liked the fruits and fresh juices. The area is quiet and very close to the film festival auditorium. I don't think it can be rated as 4 star hotel. The ratting of hotels in Europe looks loose.

    « Great Location »

    Walking distance of the station and the beach.Not quite sure how it got four stars more a standard three star.Carpets the same in the public areas and in the rooms.Comfortable bedrooms.Friendly and approachable staff

    « Hotel service »

    I had an enjoyable stay in this hotel ( even though there was reconstruction going on ) the staff were very helpful, especially a young receptionist called Manuella. She went above and beyond her duties when I was there, helping me find a chemist which was open over the Easter holidays and cash machines and just generally being very pleasant and helpful, thank you Manuella. Best Western, you have a wee gem there, look after her ??

    « A 2 minute walk! »

    Location is key. A 2 minute walk from the Palais is great for any event there. Also, next to/on Rue d'Antibes if you would want to do any shopping and tons of restaurants jut minutes away. Rooms were tiny and not brand new but adequate. I would not select this as a romantic getaway though. Staff was very helpful throughout my stay.

    « A place to stay in Cannes center. »

    Small hotel in the heart of Cannes, clean tiny room but with ample space bathroom. Friendly staff always helpful to all guests. The hotel is conveniently situated right on shopping area and a short walk to The Palais. Room rates are OK but rather high during any fair events.

    « Impeccable »

    The room and bathroom are impeccable including newly ironed lines. The service is immediat . The staff are friendly and speak excellent English. Occasional requests are quickly filled. We hope to come back soon.

    « comfortable beds great team on reception »

    Every time I go to Cannes for work I use the Best Western Univers. The team on the reception and Management are always so nice and helpful. The beds are comfortable the rooms are always clean and showers have nice big head. The hotel is perfect for my needs.

    « worsthotel room in my life »

    the receptionist was unqualified , she told me u just com for one nigt i cant give u room better than it , i reserve room on bestwestern web site n means not cheap room , ver ver small bed even for one person i paied long time before arrived

    « weekend in Cannes »

    Great receptionist service, rooms are clean but very small, breakfast is rather poor considering the price. The hotel probably needs some freshening up, the hall is small and rather messy. Considering it's a 4 star hotel, it looks more like a standard 3 stars...

    « Good location »

    Very handy location in the centre of Cannes. Comfortable room, though overall the decor is a bit bland. The staff were very friendly. The best part of the stay was breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Nice views across the rooftops of the town and the option to sit in the sun or under the canopy shade.

    « Nice place, good location, nice staff. »

    Located in the middle of the small city, everything is within walking distance. Very nice staff, big smile and very helpful with decent English skills. The room was clean, bathroom was nice and I really liked the bed.

    « Great Location »

    Very basic hotel, rooms is really tiny but it is fine if you are traveling alone. Clean, friendly staff. Ideal location to place de festival. Wi Fi in the room is terrible. You need to request tea & coffee making facilities as they don't provide it in rooms but upon request. For me worst thing is the bad Wi Fi

    « Fantastic location »

    Only a short walk from the Station or the bus stop coming from the Airport. Also near the sea and Restaurants. On arrival the staff were very friendly, welcoming and spoke good english. My room on the 5th floor was of a good size and the bathroom had a bath and shower facilities. Very clean and well maintained. Minibar and a safe a nice surprise! Breakfast was served in a wonderful rooftop dining room with views all over Cannes. An extremely good choice of food available to suit all nationalities. A good start to the day! If I ever return to Cannes I will definitely stay there again.

    « Good location but tiny room with little sound proof »

    Busy TV market week, still ridiculous prices for basically a closet. Good location, but that's it. Also, could hear guy from next door snoring....will not stay here again. Breakfast is OK, but no room service. Got back to hotel at 1am, door was locked and nobody was at front desk, had to wait 10 minutes to be let in.

    « Very nice hotel, great location, good value for money »

    Hotel is very well located in Cannes, rooms are very clean and tidy, bathrooms rather recently refreshed, rooms looking smaller then on photos and a bit more aged. It is quite, noises from outside won't disturb you. Personal is very nice and helpful, there was minor problem with an AC in my room, I was given other room right away. I would definitely consider staying there again.

    « Brilliant stay »

    Stayed here for 6 nights in June with my girlfriend whilst our two friends stayed at a different hotel down the road. Staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke perfect English. Hotel location is great, it's in between the bustling old cannes and the beautiful sea front. About 4 minutes walk to the beach! Also 30 seconds from the train station which we used a lot to travel the French Riviera. Thank you.

    « Old style Hotel but excellent located !!! »

    A small hotel, outdated and need to be renovated (furniture, equipment) but with a dream location, sympathetic and professional staff. It is close to everything: to the beach and the promenade area, "La Croisette", bars and restaurants. The hotel has no parking (thus they told me ... or it is always full) but there are some parkings near the train station (few steps, but pay attention to height of the car).

    « Good value »

    I stayed in this hotel only one night, coming from Nice with train. What a nice surprise it was that its just a short walk away from the train station and actually its a short walk eveywhere from this hotel. Its just in the centre. I stayed in the basic room that was not very cozy, but the roomplanning was great, WIFI worked great. Bathroom was very clean and modern. I stayed on higer floor and the view over the city was wonderful. Overall very good value for money.

    « Brilliant service in difficult circumstances »

    We have stayed in this hotel for many years and hope to do so again in the future. In this holiday one mishap followed another, but the major problem was the breakdown of our car. The hotel staff were superb throughout as always and extremely helpful in many ways; we had to stay two extra nights before having to fly back home and this was arranged without any bother. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them.

    « Lovely stay »

    Had a wonderful expirience staying in this hotel . The staff was very nice warm and friendly . It is ideally located .. At the heart of the city ., close to the railway station . The breakfast they served was really good ... Very comfortable rooms ..
