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.

... was more of a therapeutic place than a tourist destination. I had forgotten to bring my bathers but I didn’t mind if Mike and Kyria wanted to go and have a spa or massage or whatever. But they decided they wouldn't bother with it so we drove back into the town centre and parked near the tourist office. We also wanted to visit a lavender farm and see how they make the lavender oil etc. There were a few brochures and the lady in the touris office directed us ot ...
Today after a quick cup of coffee, Marina and I headed out to do a bunch of errands for the boat, and ourselves as well. There is a great little very touristy, shopping street, open only to foot traffic, which everyone likes to use, and I am no exception. This street is only about 4 blocks long -- but seems to have everything a visitor would like to see or buy. We headed up this tiny, narrow, over-crowded street, peering in windows, and ...
... be great if they weren't alcoholic and they didn't affect your walking or speaking control. I would've ordered them all if they weren't alcoholic. So, what does alcohol and bars give you after a few shots and feeling slightly light headed? That's right... we made friends!! Even better, French friends!! I swear it's the Australia accent. It's a ripper advantage. People love it and they can tell straight away. The first thing anyone says when I say I'm from Australia is, 'Ah ...
... it was still reasonably easy to get around because the major traffic routes seem to have mostly been put underground for example there is a massive underground tourist bus terminal which tends to focus all of the tourist traffic into one area and allows the wealthy denizens to lavish in luxury in relative peace and seclusion. We then headed to Nice for a two night stay which was eagerly anticipated by the tour group as a two nights allows the opportunity for washing socks and ...
... because AIFS payed for it. From the top of the mountain you can really see how far you have to climb through the village. We had a lot of time in Eze, so we wandered around and bought some souvenirs before going home. I met a very nice french woman in one of the shops who spoke perfect English. She is in her 30s, and has a teenage daughter. It was fascinating to talk to her because her accent was not of ...
