I stayed here for 2 nights and was absolutely horrified. Upon our arrival my friends and I were informed there would be no running water for hours and no wifi. There is no air conditioning so the room was boiling all night which was horrible. The "bunk-bed" was two normal single beds nailed on top of each other which is clearly a massive hazard!! The bathroom was large but the shower was minuscule with a sink that was blocked and wouldn't drain. Window wouldn't close so noisy traffic kept us up. The lift's light was leaking water which is yet another clear safety breach but the stairs smelt of urine and were poorly lit. A sketchy area and poor lighting led to us feeling very unsafe during the whole stay. We were glad to leave!! The only positive was that there is free water provided and it is near the beach.
Stayed in this hotel during a week in march 2016. Attended the MIPIM conference, where all hotels rooms in and around Cannes are booked years in advance. Compared to the alternatives I was willing to pay for, this hotel was a good choice. It is located in La Bocca some 4 kilometers away from central Cannes. Connections by bus are good in daytime - by nighttime expect to pay for a taxi. Location in La Bocca is really nice. Close to restaurants and shops and 400 metres from the sea. Service was overall good in the reception. However, if you expect to stay in a hotel you are bound to get disappointed. In reality we are talking basic vacation appartments. Rooms are of decent size, including a small kitchenette. Rooms are not cleaned on a daily basis (in fact not at all during my stay) and breakfast consist of a small bag of breakfast products. If you want bread to your butter, you should remember to order it a day in advance. The room had a small balcony overlooking a garden, that really needed tightening up (litter all over)Price/value relationships is OK though and I believe that is what it should be measured upon.
I found this to be a real oasis when the Film Festival is on. With rooms being THOUSANDS$ each night and in the packed centre I found this location to be a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle. Great shops nearby - fresh bread steps away and a great balcony to take in the sun. Just about 5 minutes by bus from the station I would love to return again. If you need a place to put your head at night - this is it!
I was in Cannes for the Cannes Lions Festival. Since all the low cost hotels near the Palais des Festivals were booked, I had to stick with ResidHotel. The place is OK if you're just looking for a place to sleep. Not too many options to eat around the hotel, but there's a good number of small markets and commerce, which was pretty helpful. Service was good, the attendants were very friendly and didn't mind speaking in english at all. Tip: If you're in the city for the Lions Festival or any other event going on in Cannes, take the bus number 1, 2 or 20, just down the street (1,50 euro each ride). The same goes for the other way around. After 9 pm, take the n1, n2 or n20 bus.
We stayed in this hotel/appartment just recently and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location is 2mins away from the beach, bars and market just round the corner. The best thing is, since this is an appartment as well as a hotel, you can get fresh goods from the market stool just a few metres away from the hotel. It has a reasonable size balcony where we had our breakfast the next day. The only thing about this place is that the bathroom can be easily flooded and the receptionists don't speak very well English; other than that, I highly recommend this place for value for money.
Stayed with 4 people for 2 nights in the studio apartment room with a kitchenette, bathroom, queen bed and bunkbed, tv with dresser, and balcony with a drying rack. Kitchenette has a couple pots and pans with plates and cutlery, coffee machine, microwave, mini fridge, and 2 electric stove burners. Can't comment on much from the kitchen area since we didn't use much of it other than the microwave and sink. We did not have room cleaning service since it was a 2 night stay. The bunk-bed was in a small closet-sized "room" which might make a few people uncomfortable, however it was OK. Front desk was very very helpful and friendly with the man speaking english, informing us of places to visit (there is a saturday market a couple of minutes from the hotel), a map of Cannes, and a map of the bus lines with information on stops and bus numbers. The bus is a short 10 minute ride to Hôtel de Ville where many bus lines meet as well as a short walk to a beach. The bathroom is what caused the most problems since the standing shower has a curtain not a door -- the water gets all over the bathroom if you're not careful. What the room lacked, the front desk made up in helpfulness along with the location and price of the hotel. All in all it was an ok stay. If I had another hotel option I probably would've wanted to stay there instead.
We booked a quadruple room for 2 nights. We loved the location as it was somewhat near the center of Cannes (a 10 minute bus ride). The concierge was of great help! He gave us a lot of information on the city and activities. The quadruple room meant 1 double bed and 1 bunk bed, the bunk bed was placed in what looked like a small closet. The bathroom is what caused most problems during our stay. The shower flooded to the middle part of the room which we cleaned with the towels the provided in the room. Otherwise, the room was functional with the kitchenette and balcony. We had a good stay for the most part.
Very clean reception area and apartment in general. The apartment amenities were apt for a weeks stay. But we arrived to find doors to balcony didn't lock, one had fallen off runner. Son was frightened we would be burgled. Women on reception didn't speak English very well at all, even though website said English was spoken. Man on desk on certain days spoke great English and was very helpful and understanding. Hotel offered to send us to another hotel in Cannes for one night but we had to pay to get there and back - we declined due to picking this hotel to be close to supermarket and beach, it would mean not being able to settle by taking time out off the holiday time and it was 21 Euros taxi each way and also because they said they would fix it on Monday we stayed put - it was fixed on Wednesday. On Monday we moved to another room but could feel every bedspring and the bathroom was like an oven due to extractor fan not working and fridge made terrible racket that kept kids awake all night - so we moved back to first room. Also encountered a broken chair, clothes rack and frying pan; the saucepans were grotty and there was a tissue in bathroom with blood on even though the place was supposed to have been cleaned. Bus is 1.50 a trip but you can get a 10 ticket card for 10 Euros which we did several times during our week stay. Also great is that you can get on one bus and travel into Cannes and then hop on a different number bus within an hour for free. WiFi in the hotel is free for 4 hours per email address then you pay. If you don't like smoke from smokers don't stay here as the smell/smoke drifts into your room from adjacent balconies, double glazing no good. Electric fuse tripped several times so had to cook on one hob...took 2 hours to do fried chicken and rice! Extractor fans didn't work in bathroom or cooking area. Although hotel has a policy for residents to be quiet after certain times they don't seem to enforce it - most nights had only 5 hours sleep, max. I had a breakdown after 3 nights due to door problem, electric problem and lack of sleep. TIP - if you are arriving after 'office hours' send them an email for key pick up instructions. If you like partying, staying out and the noise and smoke is not a problem then you will have a great time - if you like peace and quiet - find a gites - don't stay here.
Very good service, the check in was a bit too long we arrived at 3pm and the check in didn't open till 5pm it was too late for check in, a good stay the room was good and the location was great easy and accessible
Stayed for a few days during the Film Festival. Simple hotel, basic fixtures and fittings but clean and comfortable enough. Had a room at the rear of the hotel so was quite quiet, my colleague had a room at the front and he said it was pretty noisy in the mornings from the traffic. But €1 on the bus from virtually outside the hotel to town centre. Take bus nos 1,2 or 20. Never had to wait more than 5 minutes really. Nice Boulangerie up the road, really nice fruit and veg Market on Friday and Saturday and also a mini supermarket directly opposite the hotel open till 2am. Would go back next year.
