Best Western Hotel Univers

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I'm an expat living in Nice and from time to time I visit Cannes. 95% of my overnight stays are to the Univers. The value is exceptional. It's conveniently located. It's comfortable and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The past week I stayed in one of their remodeled suites on the 6th floor. Outstanding. Great baloney with 2 sun chaises to relax after a hard day at the beach or before going out for the evening. For the past 13 years the Univers has been home when in Cannes. Try it - you won't be disappoint !! Tell the that the Duck sent you !!

Our family trip to Cannes started very rocky because our luggage didn't make the journey with us from the states. The staff at the Best Western Hotel Univers allowed us to check-in early so that we could clean up and make a tour to St Tropez that we had booked for that morning. The entire staff was very helpful and kind; however, Veronica went out of her way to help us to change the language on the television from French to English and to bring us an iron and ironing board. Thank you Veronica, your customer service didn't go unnoticed.

This hotel is in a central location. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable with complimentary shampoos, soaps and the room had a fridge which was useful. The breakfast and service was exceptional.

I spent only a few days at hotel. I had a booking problem, but the manager of the reception solved the problem with a huge kindness. She was pretty like the all staff in the hotel. The room was clean, the bad was good. I really enjoyed sitting on the terrace of a good breakfast and listening to true French chanson....It was a great time. thx.

Super clean and comfortable!!! This Hotel is pefectly positionned in the city center and the management and staff offer a warm welcoming and assistance! Especially the dynamic Alexandra, she will give you precious advises to discover the city and local stuff! If you travel to Cannes help yourself staying there!!!

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.

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.

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.

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

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!
