Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 9.2 /10

    The Le Splendid hotel enjoys an ideal location in Cannes. Facing the bay and the old port, it takes up most of the view when you arrive by sea. It stands in the heart of the city, with only a road to cross to get to the Palais des Festivals, the Casino, or the Croisette. Rue d'Antibes, THE shopping street of Cannes, begins at the foot of the hotel, meaning shops, bars, and restaurants are all close at hand.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Le Splendid has 62 guest rooms that come as standards (about 20 of these, with a sea view or a city view) or as 'sea' rooms (Superior and Privilege rooms). There are currently 3 rooms adapted for guests with reduced mobility, but a 4th should soon see the day.
    The standard rooms are done in the same spirit as the rest of the hotel. The Belle Epoque era profoundly marked the style and interior decorating.
    Obviously, this stylistic choice cannot be to the liking of everyone. Some might find that the rooms are slightly quaint, whereas others will be enthralled by the retro style with flower patterns on the carpeting and the furniture that, apparently, is not the work of Philippe Starck. The 19th century has definitely left its mark here, as seen on the sculpted furniture.
    This hasn't inhibited a touch of modernity from entering the rooms, such as the flat-screen TV with international channels mounted on top of the chest of drawers. There are also some friendly touches, with the tea and coffee-making facilities.
    The bathrooms are quite small, but convenient and recently renovated; they feature white tiling, a bathtub, bathrobes, and hospitality products.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    With its finely sculpted white façade, worthy of the most beautiful residences of the Belle Epoque, the Splendid deserves its name. This was one of Cannes' first hotels and it didn't let itself by carried away by trendy designs, preferring to maintain its quaint charm of the beginning of the 20th century.
    Originally a 3 storey building, the hotel received two extra floors and the name Splendid in 1905. Now a 5 storey building, it has 68 rooms.
    Although this establishment doesn't want to break away from its former glory days, when artists and celebrities spent the winters here (such as Offenbach, who spent the winter of 1874 here), it hasn't prevented the owners from carrying out frequent and regular renovations for the comfort of their guests (and to attract a younger clientele). The reception desk was being redone at the time of our visit.
    In the corridors, the blue carpeting with patterns, the pastel blue and yellow walls, and the early 20th century furniture will take guests into an Agatha Christie novel. This impression is strengthened in the large breakfast room where, with striped wallpaper in blues, yellows, and pinks, you'd half-expect to see Hercule Poirot or a member of the Belle Epoque's aristocracy come in for a morning brew or an afternoon tea.
    However, the current clientele should waste no time in such contemplation, but should rather enjoy the great terrace that commands an exceptional view of the sea and the old port, as well as the numerous decorative elements serving as a time machine (antique furniture, paintings, and objects).

    Food and drink

    The Le Splendid does not have a restaurant but
    room service is available until 8:00pm.
    Breakfast is served as a buffet with bacon, eggs, fruit, pastries, orange juice, etc.... for £12. It can also be brought up to your room (£10).

    To know

    The Le Splendid hotel is to receive a 4th star by the end of the year. The reception area was being renovated when we visited.
    Offenbach and his family had several long stays at the Splendid.

      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.

      The Citadines Appart'Hôtel Carnot subscribes to the currently very trendy apart-hotel concept, making it ideal for a group holiday with family or friends, with an inviting ambience and good value for money. There's more to finding a good place to stay than just a concept of course, and the renovations planned for the apartments before the end of the year will not be unwelcome.

      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.
