The rain seemed to stop while driving which was good as it made driving a little easier and quicker. The traffic in Cannes is a nightmare!
Our first afternoon and the rain seemed to hold off for us so we walked down the main shopping streets looking at all the expensive brand names that are here before wandering around the theater that the film …
... Fey during dinner. I have to admit it was hard to eat everything! There was a lot of amazing food and I wish I could have eaten everything, but by my the time the main course was being served I was nearly falling asleep because technically I was having a midnight dinner. Besides the amazing service and food, it was extremely nice to lay flat and sleep; I did not experience any jet lag the next day.
So far, I having been loving the College International ...
For me, the best part of the festival, besides its location in paradise, was its extremely intimate setting. I could access the red carpet easier than one would imagine, before the paparazzi arrived. Once the stalkers pulled out their long Nikon 80-200mm lens and stood on risers, catching a real glimpse of any star went out the window. As I made my way past the paparazzi, I realized the unofficial and more promising red carpet for celebrity sightings ...
This morning we got up early, dressed and had breakfast so we could head down to the train station. Our plan? Take the wonderful French train system to the Village of Eze. We plotted our route carefully (following signs, not maps), and pulled into the railway parking garage. It is somewhat unusual as it is above ground. Most of the parking garages, and there are a lot of them because space is so limited in most of the towns around here, are ...
... I also purchased my ticket to Genoa, Italy, where me and 2 girls are going for a day trip at the end of the month. So excited!
Yesterday a group of us went to the musee de la castre, a museum located in 'old town' that housed ancient artifacts from virtually all of the continents as well as local paintings of old Cannes which were really interesting to see. After walking through the museum, we were able to walk up a ...

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
