Amy Adejokun Section editor

The main asset of this hotel is its location at the very heart of the city, on the liveliest street in Cannes. If you're looking for a clean and functional hotel and aren't too fussy about style and decor, then the Best Western Univers is the place for you.

    Location 9.9 /10

    The Best Western Univers stands at the centre of Cannes on the Rue d'Antibes, the city's main shopping street, lined with luxury boutiques. La Croisette and the Palais des Festivals are a very short walk away, and you'll find a plethora of restaurants, bars, and shops in the vicinity.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 72 guest rooms at the Best Western Univers (which include 3 suites and a Junior Suite) are relatively spacious (between 20 and 25m²) and all feature the same colour scheme and furniture, similar in style to the one found in the breakfast room. Along with the large wardrobe, the light wooden desk and bedside tables are pretty standard, whilst the only decor consists of a painting above the headboard, light salmon-coloured walls, and blue carpets.
    The slightly impersonal surroundings are enhanced only by the flat-screen television, minibar, safe, and free Wi-Fi.
    The bathrooms have all been refurbished and now feature white and grey walls, which, along with the rather stylish wash basins, make for simple yet effective surroundings. In addition to a toilet, they include a shower or a bathtub, a hair-dryer, and a selection of hospitality products.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    With its light wooden walls and reception desk and marble flooring, the Best Western Univers lobby is both traditional and elegant. Having said that, these are certainly not the most welcoming of surroundings, with just two armchairs and a coffee table that appear somewhat lost, tucked away in a corner of the lobby where guests can wait their turn.
    There is a lift at the hotel that not only serves the guest rooms but also the large, all-glass breakfast room on the top floor, which offers beautiful panoramic views across the rooftops of the city. There are also a few tables outside so you can enjoy the early morning sun with a coffee.
    As for the furniture and decor, you'll find the colour scheme here consists of salmon-coloured tables and blue chairs and carpet, giving the place the feel of a chain hotel. It's not exactly ugly but it's also not the most stylish of surroundings either.
    The hotel also boasts a conference room but it was undergoing renovations when we visited.

    Food and drink

    Breakfast is the only meal served at the Best Western Univers and consists of a buffet of pastries, bread, jams, and hot drinks, and guests may choose to have it delivered to their room between the hours of 7:30am and 10:00am.

    To know

    The hotel offers a dry-cleaning service, as well as a fax and courier service.
    Two of the hotel's 72 guest rooms have been adapted for guests with reduced mobility and the lift serves all of the floors. Pets are also accepted at the hotel.

      The Cavendish hotel resembles a big Parisian theatre. This boutique hotel provides a warm welcome and an irreproachable level of service: it's really one of the best hotels in Cannes. Be it for a romantic stay or a family holiday, you'll really feel at home here.

      The Villa Tosca is a charming urban hotel. It's ideal for couples who come to spend a romantic weekend in Cannes, while families aren't exactly the target clientèle.

      Located on the famous Croisette, the Majestic is one of Cannes' most famous hotels. It occupies a splendid building and is (slightly overly) proud of its high quality service and refined clientele! This is a luxury establishment for those who want to get to know the glamorous side of Cannes.

      Far from the images of rental apartments from our childhood (very kitsch and soulless studio apartments), the Villa d'Estelle has combined the advantages of a hotel (reception, room service, etc.) with the freedom that a fully equipped apartment has to offer. An ideal solution for families or groups of friends, the immaculate low key decor will appeal to many a guest.

      Located a few meters from the Villa Tosca (a charming 3 star hotel), the PLM can be considered its little brother. Less charming and less attractive, it offers an alternative for tighter budgets while still enjoying an ideal location in the centre of Cannes.

      This is one of Cannes' symbolic hotels. Ideally located, it was a witness to the Belle Epoque's heyday and has kept the spirit of that era without foregoing a certain level of modernity.
      If you're after something reminiscent of early 20th century seaside resorts for your stay in Cannes, this is the place for you.

      This is an ideal hotel if you are young, collapsing under the weight of your luggage and have not reserved anything before arriving in the city. The fact that it is undergoing renovations means that its current style might well be on the way out.

      • Location 9.27

      This really is a hotel of contrasts; on the one hand it proudly displays its Provençal decor (perhaps even a little too much so) whilst on the other its guest rooms ooze charm and are very low-key. The swimming pool and the views from the rooftop of the hotel are outstanding, but on the downside, the only form of catering provided is a single vending machine.

      This place is the symbol of Cannes and its festival, and every year plays host to dozens of stars who gather from all over the world for the international event. During this period, even its private beach is completely taken over by the studio of French satellite TV channel Canal+.
      It was built in 1927 and to this day is the biggest establishment on the Riviera and a true example of French luxury hotel accommodation.

      This was the first hotel to be built on the Croisette back in the 1960's. These days, the Grand Hôtel Cannes not only continues to offer luxurious 5 star accommodation, it has also kept its original interior design. If this matches your tastes, you will be in 7th heaven, because the hotel could almost classify as a museum of 1960's decorative arts, as well as offering services to match its lofty category.

      Facing the port, the Radisson Blu 1835 Hotel is a modern and classy establishment that welcomes rather well-off guests from all over the world. The decor is reason enough to book a room here, even if it's only for one night. However, if you want to fully enjoy this atmosphere filled with decorative creativity, try to avoid the classic rooms.
