Recent guest reviews

Great hotel in a fabulous location near to the beach and La Croisette; plenty of restaurants nearby and luxury shops. My room was overlooking the sea, very spacious and airy. Breakfast was served on the terrace and it was a great selection. Service was professional and friendly.

This is our hotel when we go to Cannes. We stayed here several times but it's always like being at home. The staff is incredibly professional yet warm and smiling. The rooms are new, neat, stylish and furnished in a classy yet modern way. This hotel's value for money is remarkable. Don't miss a stay at the Gray d'Albion.

This was our third stay at the Gray d;Albion. It's a very nice hotel in a good location and is more affordable than the nearby luxury hotels. It's only a block from the beach, has well-appointed rooms, provides a lovely breakfast, and has a private beach in a good location. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful with transportation arrangements. I'd stay here again.

I usually stay here for business on the occasion of the Festival International de La Pleasance in September. For sure this is a very good hotel in Cannes in terms of "value for money": great location super close to the shopping area, La Croisette promenade and the heart of Cannes city centre and the rooms' rate is reasonable, actually. The hotel's staff is kind and helpful. The hotel's interior decor is very nice and contemporary. Rooms are good size & clean, with terrace and the bathroom is equipped with bathtub. The buffet breakfast is fullfilling and it offers a wide choice of fresh & yummy products for a good start of the day. The only REMARK: after the 10th year of staying here every September, I noticed that the hotel hasn't gone through any real renovation... in 2006, the first year I stayed here, I considered it a luxury hotel, now I cannot consider it any longer. I'm sorry.

This excellent hôtel in the heart of Cannes has opened a cosy restaurant. Great and affordable food served on a large terrace/garden. Wonderfull! Excellent service. The hôtel has a private beach where you can lunch.

The hotel is very beautiful and in a prime location close to shops, restaurants, and the water. The staff was amazing! Especially Pascal, the duty manager. Pascal was very kind and took great care of my mom and I. He gifted us a glass of champagne each from the hotel bar for my birthday. We had dinner upstairs at the hotel's restaurant La Terrasse and not only was the staff there great as well, Pascal checked in with us there too. Everyone at the hotel from reception, to concierge, makes you feel valued from the time you check-in until the time you check-out. The room was a good size with a city view. Would definitely stay here again, it was my favorite hotel out of the few we stayed in during our week long stay in the French Riviera.

We stayed four nights in this hotel as a a part of our vacation in French Riviera. When we first arrived to the hotel around 1pm, we were able to get our room right away. We also got an upgrade to a superior room with an own terrace. The receptionist took us to our room and showed all the amenities. The room was pretty spacious and the bed was most comfortable we have ever slept on. The room was cleaned daily plus they also made up the the bed, closed the curtains and brought some chocolate every evening while we were having a dinner. All the staff at the hotel were very polite and always smiling. The concierge was also very helpful when we asked some advice on how to get to Mougins and other places nearby Cannes. On the last day when we left home, we were able to have a late check-out at 2pm without any extra charge. I am not sure if this was included on our rate but it was very nice since our flight took off in the evening. The only thing the hotel is really missing is the pool. However the hotel has a beach few minutes away. We asked about using the pool of the sister hotel Le Majestic, but we were told that it is not available due to safety reasons. We also did not have breakfast included in our rate which would have been rather expensive at 29 euro/pp, so we decided to eat breakfast elsewhere. There are a lot of cafes nearby where you can get a breakfast so that was no problem for us. The location of the hotel is very ideal, close to the beach and all the shops and restaurants. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and we would definitely stay in this hotel in the future too!

The hotel is extremely conveniently and well located, and fine for the price (I think everything in Cannes is really expensive in general). Our room was a decent size and well appointed, the bathroom was nice but small. The room and hotel in general was very clean and neat (apart from this really strange odor in our hallway; wasn't too much of an issue since it didn't get into the room). The breakfast was included in our rate and was the highlight of our stay each day. Service at breakfast was always very friendly and efficient. The buffet was relatively extensive and they could make you eggs any way you like, just ask. The main reason I'm knocking off 2 stars, and this was a really big issue for us, is that you cannot control the temperature in the guests rooms AT ALL. I have stayed in all sorts of hotels, inns, and B&Bs of all caliber, and have NEVER encountered this. It was so warm in our room that I didn't sleep very well the three nights we stayed there. Cannes was very hot and humid when we visited, and it was the worst going out for a walk, feeling sweaty/warm, and then returning to your room not being able to feel refreshed. They really need to fix this. I would not recommend this hotel for this reason alone.

Amazing hotel ,the breakfast area was lovely and the food was really good The location was close to shopping area and walking destine to La Croisette. Many thanks to Madam ARFI and all the reception & restaurant staff

Although not a palace standing on the croisette like its sister hotel the majestic, the gray still offer a decent stay. Its a 4 star hotel that really makes an effort to reach the standards of a 5 star, the service is very decent so is the private beach which in my opinion is better located than the majestic's. Pros: - good location (seconds away from the croisette) -convenient public parking connected to the hotel -decent effort to provide a good service -nice terrace for breakfast and dinner -good value Cons: - vis a vis - no pool All in all, a good hotel where i would take my family back.
