Recent guest reviews

We had a wonderful stay in Cannes at this hotel. Service was impeccable and rooms were very comfortable, clean and neat. Very central to the shopping area and a short walk to the beach. Lots of wonderful restaurants around.

Visited this hotel for 5 days. It looked lovely not far from beach. Everything you could want. Breakfast nice room ok. Should have booked a balcony. But vety disappointed about horrendous road works closing the whole road the hotel us in. Our transfer from airport had to drop us at end of road, and we had to walk with luggage.,which normally is no big problem, but I have breathing problems, and at our age 78 /79 I'm afraid it was a big deal, I just wish the agent Easyjet holudays had told us about road works, but it would have been lovely, but for the road problems. A bit disappointed.

This hotel is perfectly located on a street perpendicular to the Croisette which makes it just a bit remote, thus quieter but still very close to anything you want to visit in Cannes. When you leave the lobby, walk left and you will reach the Croisette in a couple of minutes, walk right and you are on one of the main shopping streets of Cannes ... What more do you want ? There is another quite unusual advantage to the location, the hotel happens to be in the same building as a high-end mall, there is even a direct access from the lobby to within the mall. Just take note that shops usually open at 10-10:30 in the morning in Cannes so if you are not the kind of visitor that gets shops opened at night (if you are, what are you doing on TA ?) you should take the time to enjoy your breakfast before going shopping. Talking about which, the breakfast is one of the highlights of the hotel. The buffet is very complete, plus you can order your fancy if it is not already provided. Everything is fresh and I really took my time enjoying it as much as possible. Service is excellent, mindful and discreet, always perfectly polite (more than us guests actually) and available to help you in any way. The room I had was probably on the low end of the offer (booked for me on a business trip), but it was very clean, actually quite spacious, very stylish, the bed was excellent, the bathroom convenient and cleverly built. The space offered plus the nice balcony will even make it possible to stay in your room for extended periods of time without feeling cramped. TV is a large flat screen with a rather good offer of free cable channels plus a vod paid package. The minibar is well stocked, and the room service options are abundant, you can even detail the breakfast buffet on a card as a room service option. I did not try the hotel restaurant, my stay was way too short, I had to eat out, but from what I read it seemed quite good. The hotel has an underground parking if you come by car. Although I did not pay for my room, the prices seemed actually fair for Cannes and the hotel standing. All in all a very good option, it is quieter because not directly on the busy Croisette, but close to everything you might need in Cannes. You can book there with closed eyes.

This is a great hotel, has everything you need. All the mod cons, right by the sea and all the action. Which wasn't much this time of year, but will be great for the high season. Great staff and really good attention to detail. I'll be back here for sure.

Le Gray d'Albion is a well organised hotel. There is no restaurant for the moment although you can have breakfast. The room (9th floor) is complete but not very spacious. Sevice at breakfast is quite good. The doormen are not working! they don'nt help with Luggage when I arrived and neither when I left the hotel after a five day's stay. Too busy discussing with each other. the rooms are well maintained.

This hotel was very nicely located in Cannes. It is only 10 minutes to the train and only 2 to the beach. The service of the hotel was very nice. Especially the breakfast was perfect. A lot of options of fresh products. The beds were comfortable.

We loved the hotel, the location was great close to the shopping street and also to the croisette. The service is very good, we tried their Gym and was very clean and well equipped. We have informed the hotel that we are coming for our anniversary and they made a nice welcome gesture to us. Our requests were nicely met and a plus that this hotel bathrooms has toilet wash.

First time I've stayed here and it was a real treat. Perfect location for exploring all that Cannes has to offer. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Coffee and tea making facilities with a few sweet and savoury treats to tempt you in the mini-bar. We didn't opt for B&B rate and instead chose to head out every morning as there are lots of chic eateries nearby - so can't rate the restaurant. The staff were friendly and courteous and bar was comfortable and cosy. Would love to return.

The problem started when I booked a sea view room at their sister property near the beach the Majestic Barrier. They told me one week before arrival that the hotel was closed and they moved me to the property around the corner. They said they upgraded me to a suit which was nice. The ladies at the front reception are not friendly. It’s overall dark in the lobby and not impressive. You would never even know you are in France it’s so modern. It was not a sea view unless you walked out on the balcony and stretched your neck. Plus the buildings next door are ugly and unattractive. The streets outside are under construction and there was no restaurant. The suite was decent, basic 4 star, but the rooms have paper thin walls. You can hear people on all sides and the hallway all nights talking. Never in my life has this happened to me (maybe in a former communist country) but after my first night the manager told me he had reports I was ‘loud’ and to be quiet. The bathroom was decent but there is no place for a woman to set her makeup or use a dryer near a mirror. If I could do it over I would have stayed in nearby Antibes or Nice. Even a small pension would have been better.

A bit late in doing this review but stayed at this hotel in late October. It was fab, helped by beautiful autumnal weather. Really lovely hotel with very helpful staff. Location superb. Great breakfast in a very nice restaurant. First stay at this hotel and will definitely be back. Loved it !
