Amy Adejokun Section editor

This hotel is aptly named: located in two small buildings with a swimming pool and garden, you really feel as if you are staying in a villa. This charming hotel is neither design nor standard; it is located just outside the city centre and is a true haven of calm and elegance.

    Location 6.0 /10

    Located east of Cannes, La Villa is within walking distance of La Croisette, at the foot of what Cannes residents call 'California' (the hill where the most beautiful villas in Cannes are located). It takes several minutes on foot to reach the city centre, however this, combined with the hotel's location in a residential area, means that guests are assured peace and quiet during their stay.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The 33 rooms at La Villa are divided into four categories: single, standard, comfort and executive with a terrace.
    The standard rooms are not very large but their size is perfectly adequate. The rooms offer a view of the garden, the street or the sea.
    Their decor is based on the same colour scheme that is used throughout the hotel (shades of cream with white wooden furniture), however, here, the brown of the cushions in the lobby is replaced by lavender carpets and bedspreads (the colour scheme is due to be updated to shades of cream, chocolate and ivory).
    In addition to the elegant, white wooden furniture (desk, chair and bedside tables), there are also wrought iron furnishings (chair, luggage rack) which are reminiscent of the furniture in the garden.
    Here again, there is an atmosphere of chic simplicity which makes the space very inviting.
    With regards to facilities, there is a small television above the desk that broadcasts international channels, a mini-bar and safe are available in each room and there is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Entirely decorated in white, the bathrooms are in keeping with the theme of the bedrooms; only the blue borders and the light from the window relieve the monotony of the white tiles. In the standard rooms, the bathrooms are equipped with a shower only (the comfort rooms have either a shower or a bathtub and the executive rooms have a corner bathtub and separate shower). Additionally, a hair-dryer, slippers and hospitality products are provided.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    Composed of two buildings dating from the 1920s, La Villa really is, as its name indicates, an old villa. Renovated in 2008, this charming hotel offers excellent services considering the small number of rooms (33 in total).
    Viewed from the street - although the beautiful two-storey white façade and arbours already provide a good first impression - it is difficult to really imagine what is concealed behind the hedge that surrounds the hotel.
    Once you walk through the gate, the vegetation welcomes you and invites you to relax on the bench in the small sitting area surrounded by hedges: with wrought iron garden furniture and a small fountain, this intimate space reflects the style of the hotel's interior.
    The lobby also offers a combination of chic and simplicity, with its elegant white wooden furniture set against cream walls, the beautifully crafted, white wood reception and dark wooden chests and trunks that match the brown cushions on the sofas. The space is bright, chic and extremely cosy.
    The outdoor space that separates the two buildings of the hotel resembles a Japanese garden, but with Mediterranean plants (olive and lemon trees). The terraces of the Executive rooms overlook the garden. There is a swimming pool surrounded by deckchairs and shade is provided by a pergola.
    Located in the second building, the breakfast room is a very pleasant space with a large window. The decor follows on the same theme as that found in the lobby, with an elegant white dresser and wrought iron chairs that are reminiscent of the furniture in the garden. Since life is not just about relaxation, tranquillity and pleasure - which is hard to imagine when staying at a hotel like this - there is a meeting room that can seat up to twenty people which is available for guests who have business to attend to.

    Food and drink

    The hotel does not have a restaurant, but guests can order dishes from the snack menu (salads, pizzas, pasta, sandwiches, grilled meats, desserts and ice cream), served daily from 11:00am to 1:30pm and from 6:00pm to 9:30pm.
    The bar is open 24/7.
    A buffet breakfast (orange and apple juice, coffee, tea, herbal teas, pastries, breads, cakes, brioche, cereals, muesli, cheeses, cold meats, fruit, yoghurt etc.) is served from 7:30am to 10:30am in the dining room, on the terrace or in the guest rooms (continental breakfast).

    To know

    The hotel has an in-room massage service available upon reservation for an additional fee (offering relaxing massages, energy massages, Indian massages with warm oil, reflexology and drainage).
    The decor of the rooms is due to be updated, with a new colour scheme, which will include shades of cream, chocolate and ivory.
    Public parking is free around the hotel (another advantage of being outside the city centre) and garage parking spaces are available on request (and for a fee of around £15 per day).
    The hotel also offers a laundry service.

        Très bon hôtel. Accueil très agréable, cadre raffiné sans exagération, service impeccable. Petit déjeuner dans le jardin autour de la piscine. Extérieur avec des petits salons intimes très réussis pour un hôtel en ville. Déjà deux séjours réussis en juin 2013 et août 2012.

      • Advantages

        Très bon rapport qualité/prix. Très près de la croisette.

      • Disavantages

        Le passage des trains, mais uniquement à l'extérieur et dans la journée. Aucune nuisance dans l'hôtel.

      The idea behind the Eden Hotel was to take guests away in their own little bubble but at the heart of Cannes, and it is not far from succeeding in this aim. Although the decor in the Classic rooms is not very well coordinated and is unlikely to provide any sort of escape, the overall level of the services and amenities most definitely is dreamy and incredibly relaxing.

      • Location 5.15

      Slightly set back behind the luxury hotels of La Croisette, the Cannes Palace is a smaller and more discreet hotel. It consists of two parts: a renovated part and an older part, which are both very different. Some guest rooms are designed in a contemporary and stylish, very fashionable way, ready to accommodate couples or families for a weekend break, or even a longer stay. Do not be put off by the 1970's aspect of the building: it's definitely worth having a look at the interior. The only thing which is really missing, here, is a view of the sea.

      This establishment will make you forget all you thought you knew about residence hotels. Gone are the nondescript interiors, kitsch decors, and cheap and ugly furniture, and gone are the tiny rooms with their bunk-beds. Here, everything is modern, simple and comfortable. It's the perfect place for families.

      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.

      Some films are great and others dreadful, and the same goes for hotels. The Renoir belongs to the former category. There is a slight nod towards the glamour of the silver screen, handled with intelligence and sophistication, much in the same way as everything else in this hotel.
      When refinement and charm are top the bill, the only thing you have to fear as a guest - or an audience member - is the sound of the clapperboard announcing the end of your stay.
