we rented a very large apartment with very low price, but actually this place was very very bad maintained apartments. in the toilet there was no light, also many other things were missing in there... we were 3 person and paid 52 euro, last minute boooking... if you need a big cheap place is okay, but it was not clean :(

We booked 3 apartments for a business trip and two of the apartments were unfit for human living. They were so disgustingly filthy we had to move out and find a Hotel. There was no one on site to assist us, they photos of the rooms are nothing like on the website. There should be more through checks done on these places before they are let out to the general public, It ruined our trip completely! The beds need to be destroyed and replaced with new. Awful place do not waste your time or money!

Old place. 15 minutes driving fron Palais Festival. Neighbourhood doesn’t feel safe. Parking on the Street is difficult. For this money it’s Not that Bad for a single. But od you travel with wife or family the will not like it ;)

The title of this review just about sums up the property. I don’t think the apartment has been cleaned since the block was built. Our feet were black from walking from the bedroom to lounge. Bathroom door was hanging off, coffee table was broken, kitchen surfaces had chunks missing, dried hard food on cutlery. A complete health hazard. No way could you even begin to contemplate cooking there. The wardrobe doubled as a broom cupboard. Almost non existent reception. On complaining the receptionist refused to come and see the issues. Very unhelpful. Photographs very deceptive. Actually share the pool with Pierre Vacances next door. Do not arrive early as you will not be able to get in let alone check in. An absolutely disgusting place and contrary to others opinion it is not in a great location. I checked out after 24 hours and went back to the heart of Cannes where even the most basic of hotels is fit for both animals and humans. Something this property is not fit for...

very good location in walking distance to Cannnes centre , very close to a clean beautiful sandy beach, hotel with a swimming pool and green relax zone, suite with two rooms, TV, Wifi, bathroom, balcony and a kitchen, no towels

Loved the keyless access to the building. The balcony was excellent and we enjoyed using the space. The apartment was roomy too. We are happy the balcony door to the bedroom was fixed promptly so we could close it.We did not sleep well on the first night with the noise from the street. All balcony doors need maintenance. They are still difficult to close. There are a number of maintenance issues needing attention.1. The bed slats are loose and have been for some time. 2. Light bulbs replaced.3. The floor was dirty on arrival.4. The coffee table should be removed it is unsafe. 5. No washing up liquid. 6. Only enough toilet paper for 2 days 7. Numerous cracked tiles which give an uneven floor. 8. The front door is difficult to open and noisy to close. As are others on Etage 6. The door edges need sanding. 9.

My room was on the first floor overlooking the street. it was filthy and there were broken electrical sockets and cupboard doors hanging off. There is no on site manager at the property - if there was a The room you walk through to get to the pool looks as though time has stood still for 15 years. The lady in charge of clearing the pool area in the evening is like a headmistress and treats adults as if they are children! As soon as I could I found another place to move to. Despite repeated attempts to contact Residotel with whom I'd booked this property I had difficulty getting any response out of them regarding the poor quality of the place (or a refund for remaining nights I'd paid for). I totally agree that you get what you pay for, I travel extensively but I generally find hotel or property owners take more pride in presenting a room with a reasonable standard of repair/cleanliness.

Pros: Good location, access to busy swimming pools. For price, it was almost acceptable. Can borrow irons etc from reception at no cost. Free wifi. Cons: Air conditioning leaked constantly, reception's solution to this problem was to keep buckets and towels on the floor for the next 48 hours + until they could contact a technician. After complaining again, the technician came out the next day, but after he tried to fix the air con, it now leaked even more. Reported this to reception, was given another dish towel and bucket. No manager on site to escalate problems to, so receptionist's decision was final. The apartment floor was very dirty and the soles of our feet were covered in dirt every time we walked over it without shoes. Only one toilet roll and this is not replaced. Sheets and towels not changed whole duration of 6 day stay. Reception only open between 4 and 7pm. Coffee machine in room did not work. It's close enough to Cannes and the bus takes about 10 minutes into Cannes centre, it's very safe and you need codes to get through each door and wristbands to get into the pool. The rooms for 2 people it isn't possible to get a sea view, only a street view, which can be noisy but not terrible. It's a tired old hotel and could do with a revamp. It wouldn't be my first choice of hotel to stay in again but it's not the worst place I've stayed.

This hotel has reception only open for 2 hours a day. Do not check in unless you are there at the limited time that they are open. No bag storage upon departing as well as there is no one at reception. No iron or hairdryer or working WIFI. It is impossible to get clean towels. The hot water does not work for longer than 5 min at a time. When I departed the elevator was broken so I had to drag my suitcase down 7 flights of circular stairs without any help. They also do not tell you upon check in that you are responsible for cleaning the apartment or they will charge you a fee and they do not provide the cleaning supplies. It was $200 CAD a night during the festival and not worth it

My fiancée and I stayed in this hotel for a few days in March to celebrate my 40th birthday. (It really isn’t a hotel, it’s managed apartments, but I think the name gave that away!) First of all, I’m a little disappointed by the negative reviews for these apartments, these people are very short sighted. I think the good ol’ saying ‘You get what you pay for’ is relevant in this instance. We paid for the apartment with a sea view which cost us just £60 per night which is super cheap for the French Rivera, and even cheaper for Cannes. So when I read a review from a very short sighted person I’m thinking ‘You paid £60 (half that for a room without sea view) a night, not £300 a night you Numpty). So remember, ‘You get what you pay for’. Anyway, we chose this apartment for a number of reasons, firstly in was in Cannes (on the outskirts), we got a sea view and it was near transport links. The train station is about 500m down the road from the apartment, so when we arrived at Nice Airport rather than paying €150 for a taxi, we paid just €10 for the train, only bad point about this is that we had to do a little walking to and from the stations, but worth it when your saving €140! We arrived quite late at night, so the reception was closed (they only open a few hours a day), but they had given us all the security codes and easy to follow instructions to get our key etc. We then went to reception the following day to confirm that we had arrived and get information etc, the only info we were given was to make sure we cleaned the apartment when we left otherwise we’ll be changed around €60! Our thoughts behind this is, they don’t have chamber maids so the apartments get cleaned by the guests and then they have someone go in to change the sheets etc after your stay, if the apartment is minging dirty they clean it and charge you. Which I suppose works quite well as it keeps the prices rock bottom. We actually cleaned the apartment on our first morning, just to make sure, but it wasn’t too much hassle. Apartment (aka Base of Operations) – The apartment was a little shabby but fit for purpose, it was basic but had everything we needed for our stay. There was a cloak room, bathroom with a bath/shower and sink/vanity unit, bedroom with wardrobe, drawers and two single beds (we thought it would be a double but that was easily fixed by pushing the beds together), a living room with a dining room table and chairs, two single sofa beds and a cabinet with flat screen TV, and finally a kitchen with everything you needed (apart from an oven, but did have a hob and microwave!), and last but not least the balcony, which had an outside table and chairs set and also got the sun all day long (winner). The bedroom, kitchen and living room all had glass doors to the balcony. There’s nothing better than opening your eyes in the morning and seeing a magnificent sea view without getting out of bed. The view out the kitchen window was just as good. Over all it could do with a bit of modernisation, but we used the apartment as a base of operations. So only ate and slept there, if we intending to spend our whole holiday in the apartment I could see why people might not like it, but it was a base of operations only, so didn’t need to be glitzy. So I repeat, ‘You get what you pay for’. They also had free WIFI, which is always a bonus. Balcony – The balcony was huge and had a table and chair and got the sun all day long, we ate all our morning and evening meals on the balcony. As per the other reviews, yes, the train line is between hotel and the beach. It didn’t bother us at all, there was a few trains but they didn’t make too much noise and didn’t affect our stay or the amazing views. One morning we spotted a school of wild dolphins swimming about 100ft from the beach, it was great. Shopping – If you come out of the hotel and walk the opposite direction to the beach you will find the main high street of shops (only about 100mtrs), here you can find everything you need for your stay. I recommend that you shop around as some of the smaller shops will rip you off. We found a little supermarket and was able to buy everything you need, beers from €0.60 and bottles of wine from €5.00. Swimming Pool - We didn't get to see the pool as it only opens between May and October. It was a great short break, if you stay here just remember ‘You get what you pay for’.
