Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Canberra Cannes
Preis bzw. Leistung waren voll in Ordnung. Lage Optimal. Zimmer sehr sauber. Ich versuchen bei meinem nächsten Cannes Besuch wieder in diesem Hotel ein Zimmer zubuchen
Location, location, location
Superb location 100m behind the Croisette and right on the rue d'Antibes, which is quiet now that traffic has been restricted.
The hotel has been tastefully refurbished and the ground floor conservatory is a bright, pleasant place to have breakfast.
Didn't encounter any noise problems but there was a shortage of hot water. Other than that, hard to fault.
Great Value! Superb Location!
I have stayed with my family in July for one week. The hotel is great value for Cannes. The location is superb, it is one block from the beach and right on Rue D'Antibe. The staff was sufficiently friendly. It was very convenient to have a parking since we rented a car, you have to pay for the parking but that is OK. We never went to private beaches, you can walk five minutes to the free beach, buy some towels and you can save a lot of money. There are many nice bakeries around to buy breakfast, you can a save a lot of money that way. I would stay there again. I don't think you can get any better for around $160/day in that part of France. I highly recommend that you rent a car and drive along the coast, it is stunning. I had been there years ago but I forgot how beautifull it is. I rented a car from SIXT and that was good value.

Excellent value Canberra
My wife and I have just returned from 4 nights at the Canberra Hotel in Cannes. This is a very good 3 star hotel. It is very well located on Rue D'Antibes and close to La Croisette. The hotel staff are very friendly, helpful and speak good English. Our only adverse comment relates to the occasional lack of hot water in the bathroom. Other than that, we found this to be an excellent choice of hotel and would recommend it to visitors to Cannes. Cannes is a great place to spend a few days and there are lots of great places to eat and drink. The fixed price dinner menus represent very good value. We travelled to Cannes by bus No. 200 from Nice airport. This is the slow bus that takes the coast route. At only 1.30 euros per person we did not mind that the journey took one hour 20 minutes. We got off at Pont des Gabres, which is only a few minutes walk along Rue D'Antibes from the hotel. During our stay we visited Grasse (a bit disappointed) and Antibes (great). Both of these trips were taken by bus, again only 1.30 euros each for a one way journey. All in all a great short holiday and would definitely go back to Cannes and the Hotel Canberra.
Great Location , Lousy Soundproofing
Location is probably the best this hotel has to offer. It's behind the Noga Hilton, a few yards from the Croisette and its beaches. There are plenty of shops nearby; the train station is a 10' walk. It also offers onsite parking for 14euros.
The hotel was recently renovated; rooms are clean, well kept, with individual A/C; bathrooms are large, but no shower curtain; TV with a few european channels. Staff is courteous.
Nice breakfast for 12euros, but can get better deals elsewhere.
My main complain was the lack of soundproofing between the rooms. Walls are thin, so you will hear everything your neighboors do or say. In addition, the old wood floor joists squeek... which add to the concerto! So if you want a good night sleep, forget it.
Would recommend it to anyone
This hotel was great, my only complaint is that breakfast was not included with the price of the rooms, there was an extra charge of 12 euros per day per person which we did not pay as this seemed a bit excessive, it seems that all hotels in the area have the same policy though so bearing this is mind I would thoroughly recommend this hotel, it is in a great location, only minutes from the beach, the 2 main streets - the Croissette and the rue d'antibes, and walking distance to the station. It was clean, quiet, the rooms were spacious and had everything we needed, the hotel was recently renovated so it is modern and attractive inside and outside. The staff were helpful. The rooms also all have air conditioning. There is a Spar very nearby which helps the budget to buy drinks and snacks from there rather than from the very expensive cafes and restaurants in Cannes. The hotel has a deal with one of the private beaches, 10 euros for a day including sunbed and umbrella.
I would definately revisit this hotel and recommend it to anyone looking for a hotel in cannes.
Good hotel. Good value
My family stayed in this hotel for three night in April. A small clean hotel very well situated at the Rue d'Antibes, the main shopping street and the croisette/beachwalk only a few minutes away. The rooms were quite spacious and had a small sitting aread and a french balcony. The insulation between the rooms is quite poor though so if you get a noisy neighbour you might lose some sleep. I can't remember what we paid per room but it was quite good value.
Character & Warmth
I've stayed at The Martinez, Noga Hilton, Grey D'Albion and a few of the smaller hotels around Cannes and can comfortably say the value of this hotel is not to be underrated. Great location on the Rue D'Antibes as well as nice, clean rooms. Staff very friendly. Easily as nice as The Martinez but for 1/2 the price and 1/2 the hassle.
Great hotel, airconditioned, recently renovated and great location.
Walk to the beach, or the old city center. The main shopping street is right outside the hotel and you can walk to the trainstation to take the train to Nice or Monaco. Friendly staff, spoke good english. For dining, try the Rue Marie Antoinette, a steep ally in the old city with great little restaurants. For great deals on dining, get the prix-fix meals.
We stayed at the Hotel Canberra in June 2003. The rooms were spacious, air conditioned, and clean. The hallways were not air conditioned, so they had a stale smoke smell. The shower did not have a shower curtain (popular in Europe, for some reason), so taking a shower was tricky without flooding the bathroom. The staff spoke English and were very helpful. They suggested an excellent restaurant for dinner. The hotel is located in the middle of several blocks of shopping. The parking was about 14 Euros, but it was close and safe (off the Narrow streets). The breakfast also cost extra, but we did not have it. The hotel provides beach towels if you request it. There was no hairdryer in the bathroom, but it may be available on request.

There were only 3 of us on the Trivia team but despite this we came 3rd. Havent won the daily quiz yet despite getting only 2 wrong each day. I think some people are cheating and using the internet!
Already we are meeting nice people to have dinner with and for the second time we did not make the show. There is a huge range of ages on board, a few teenagers but also a family with baby and another couple with their 4 ...

So dinner consisted of, buffalo mozzarella, foie gras, salmon, ham and parmesan risotto, seafood linguini, and drank, piña colada's, Long Island iced teas and mojito's. Pack up tomorrow and head to Dubai. Chat ...

... evergreen and flower in the winter time. The region is always sweet smelling hence it's claim to fame as the "perfume" leader. We couldn't figure out how you would get to the top of the village as it would be impossible to drive a car up! Except walking of course! Boy it was hot and 32 degrees climbing the very steep streets. Lucky I am fitter so I was ok! We the had free time and had to meet back at the bus later. There were two other Aussies on our tour so we headed to a local bar ...
started our last day in nice getting croissants and coffee from the
bakery under our hotel. Yum! As we were eating it a guy walked in with
his dog. We have seen all over paris and nice that dogs are allowed
anywhere really. In pubs, in restaurants.. Bakeries... Shopping centres,
trains, buses... There are no restrictions!!! Don't worry about the
food regulations at all. Some dogs we see sitting on the counters of
restaurants! Sanitation at its finest.... ...
