I travelled to Cannes for business and the hotel was very conveniently located. The free Wi-Fi access was great, but the ISP annoyingly did not link to a lot of non-French websites. The room was small, with not a lot of workspace, but it was
relatively quiet. The queen bed was comfortable and the wall-mounted flat-screen TV was visible from bed or sitting in the chair near the desk. The bathroom was very modern and one of the highlights of the room (compared with similar small hotels). The daily breakfast (included in the rate) was ample and fresh, and served on a pleasant patio overlooking the small pool and lush garden. The staff were always helpful and efficient.

Short drive from hotel
I arrived at Nice Airport on the non-stop flight from New York and transferred to Cannes using the 210 Express bus, which picks up and drops off in front of both terminals. This bus services runs every 30 minutes during most of the day. Buy a roundtrip ticket for about EUR 25 and the trip takes about 30-40 minutes. Take a taxi from the bus station in Cannes in front of the Hotel de Ville (City Hall). It's a little too far to walk with bags. The 5-7 minute taxi ride will probably cost EUR 10-18 each way depending on whether you pick one up at the taxi lot across from the bus stop or have one meet you at the hotel for the return journey to the bus stop. For a single person, this beats EUR90+ each way for a taxi directly between Nice Airport and your Cannes hotel.
