Historical Traveler Reviews Eden Hotel & Spa Cannes
Good Value, Professional and Clean. Recommended
Hotel Eden is located on the main shopping street in Cannes and is approx. 10 mins walk to the heart of restaurant land and 5/6 minutes from the sea.
Our hotel room was very clean and modern and perhaps a little on the small side with a smallish bathroom and tiny toilet.
The staff on reception were extremely helpful and keen to assist in anything asked of them.
There are not many facilities in the hotel other than a small bar/breakfast area which is manned by the reception staff at night and breakfast is run by one person which seems a little understaffed during busy hours. The lack of facilities in the hotel is easily made-up by the rest of Cannes with some wonderful restaurants and bars.
Despite advertising one, the hotel doesn't have a servicable car park (I was informed that they were constructing a new floor to make more space) which means a 5/6 minute walk to the nearest public car park which costs circa EUR25.00 per day. Free street parking is available out of office hours.
In summary a good value, professional and clean hotel with friendly staff. RECOMMENDED.
Not bad, but pretensions to "4-star boutique hotel" status are unjustified
Overall we enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Eden hotel and might consider staying here again if the price was right. However, it's worth noting a few pros and cons.
The hotel has a good location in terms of its proximity to the beach and the eastern part of La Croisette. Convenience for the larger concentrations of restaurants around the harbour is not so good - expect a 15 to 20 minute walk.
Although the hotel advertises itself as a "4-star boutique hotel", this really is a bit of a stretch. Facilities are currently limited to a small breakfast room/bar and a few chairs with internet access terminals. Evidently a large expansion programme is underway to the rear of the hotel, opening 2006. Our bedroom, although perfectly adequate, was relatively small, overlooked the building site and had a peculiar small toilet cubicle with a separate bathroom. The lack of a shower screen/curtain meant that flooding the bathroom was a real possibility. Queen size bed was very comfortable. Room decor was bland, modern style with white walls, wooden floors (cleanliness of which was a bit suspect) and black furniture.
The hotel's car park is currently out of commission due to the building work, but we found it convenient to use the nearby "Lamy" underground car park (about 2 blocks away and maximum 15 Euros per 24 hours).
What a nice surprise....
My husband and I stayed at this lovely hotel in June. We booked through Expedia and we ended up with a really good deal. We are sure we were upgraded when we checked into our room. It was a very generous sized room with a king size bed and balcony with sea view! The only slight negative point is that the bathroom was a little on the small side but very clean and fresh looking. The staff were particularly friendly and the location is fantastic. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
Good Hotel Great Value for cannes
Very friendly staff. Good size clean rooms with wooden floors . Breakfast was also good. I paid €120 for the room and I was satisfied with what I got.
Location is excellent only a 3 min walk to the sea and directly on the main sterrt in Cannes (but in the quiter part so not much street noise)1 negative point is the construction of the hotel with wooden floors means that it can get a little noisy at night when people are coming in. Apart from that it is a good hotel. For a few quid more you could try Hotel Crusstini Beach (not too sure on the spelling)
My husband and I stayed at the Eden in September 2004 and we loved it. It is very contemporary with clean, spacious rooms. It is an easy walk to shopping and the beach. We also got a great rate at Lowestfare. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Friendly and helpful Staff
I stayed four nights at the Hotel Eden. I had a wonderful room with a large window and a view of the sea down the street opposite. The room was clean and furnished in a contemporary style. The breakfast room was modern and had a wide variety of food available. The fresh fruit salad and a wonderful array of jams were the highlights for me.
The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel is well situated on the Rue Antibes.
My only concern was that the wooden floors amplified sound and at one point I could hear a baby cry two floors away ! I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Cannes.
So conveniently located..
A stylish, modern hotel - very clean with attentive staff. The room was spacious and the satellite TV included Sky News that kept us up to date with developments back home. A direct road takes you to the seafront and, by walking a few metres either way, you can find a free beach rather than pay the steep prices for a sun-lounger at a private area. Highly recommended - although a word of warning is that if you use the tea and coffee facilities this gets charged as mini-bar expense!
Stylish, Modern and Good Value
The Hotel Eden is an excellent recently renovated hotel with a modern, contemporary feel and all at a very reasonable price. On checking out I was expecting to pay some more as I was sure I had been undercharged for the quality of the room. Private underground parking is excellent, and from my experience quite rare in French city hotels. It is situated centrally enough to be convenient to all the main areas yet is outside of the hustle and noise of the main drag. I would recommend the hotel to anyone.
Charming contemporary hotel well located
The Eden Hotel in Cannes is an excellent, newly renovated contemporary design hotel well located in Cannes just 150 mts from the beach and La Croisette. It is a great alternative to the high priced major deluxe hotels in Cannes, we only paid 120 EUR for a lovely room with great comfort and style. We highly recommend this hotel for those who wish to visit Cannes , and the Cote D'Azur without spending a fortune.

The shots Sarah and I had were some what different lets just say that! We had several quite bizarre tasting shots. Shots that were lit on fire, ones we dipped marsh mellows into, shots that were in a dry ice form, fruity ones, chocolates flavoured ones, you name it! As you can see it is quite easy to get drunk in a bar like that. ...
