A tender experience in Cannes

... on which you can listen to a commentary in any of 6 languages.

The train took us down the main coast road Blvd de la Croisette where we passed such iconic hotels as the Carlton, the Majestic and La Malmaison. It is said that the Majestic hotel is where Grace Kelly met Prince Albert of Monaco. My question is what was the Prince doing in a hotel in Cannes anyway? He only lived about 20 miles down the road. Less than an hours drive!! If I had the choice between a hotel ...

Lyon to Cannes

... the train I took one final look out across the city, "bye Lyon I will be back" i chorused. Settled in our seats baguette in hand we relaxed back for our 4 hour train ride to Cannes. Hat in hand and sunnies stowed on my head we disembark the train in Cannes after a four and a half hour journey. The sweet smell of the sea breeze intoxicates me as we drag out suitcases through the cobble stone streets in search of our apartment. Thanks to ...

Marche Forville

After parking the car on our way to an anniversary lunch (46th), we discovered another of Cannes treasures - the Marche Forville or Forville Market. It is located close to the Rue Meynadier, the other shopping area used by the locals. Today was antiques and collectibles day and it was like wandering through the Antiques Roadshow. Housed in an opensided building, with heavy plastic curtains that can be unrolled in case of rain, it is a ...

... five and ten people. Crazy!! We walked up the hill to the Casino. Unfortunately we were not able to get in since you have to be18. They close the Casino between noon and 2pm anyway
and we got there exactly at noon. The famous red Ferrari was outside the Casino and a lot of other nice cars were driving around. Shopping is not possible for us in Monaco so we got bored quite fast. :) We took some really nice pictures in the garden behind the Casino ...

... constantly sitting outside in the courtyard smoking. Its cool to get to see a lot of different cultures and talk to others from different countries.

After lunch, a group of us went to the grocery store to pick up some snacks and other necessities, and then we finally headed to the beach! Swimming in the Mediterranean Sea with mountains off to each side was simply amazing, especially since ...

    CANNES Hotel Gray d'Albion

    Not a 4 star hotel

    from

    The bad things - not a 4 star hotel. But, I guess 4 stars in France is little different than 4 stars in US. The hotel is very outdated, carpet and the furniture looks old. The wall color in the room is pale nude depressing color and is chiped and cracked. Tile in the bathroom has cracks and some tiles has fallen off. Hair dryer in the bathroom matches the browunish orange color of the tile -both looks like 60s design. The worst of all is the matress. Hard as a rock, pillows are not better. I had to put a bed spread under my sheets to make it little softer.

    The good things:location, nice toiletries (including Hermes colone), clean, quiet.

    I booked it on Expedia for $245 a night. (money does not buy you much in Cote D'Azur)

    Fantastic

    from

    We stayed at the Gray d'albion a couple of weeks ago for a week and it was lovely. Beautiful, grand reception and friendly english speaking receptionists.

    We were shown to our room and it was very luxurious with a massive bed, cute little balcony and well stocked bathroom.

    The private beach is just over the road and loungers, parasols and beach towels were included in our booking at no extra cost (its advisable to check with your travel agent or the hotel if this is included when making your booking).

    All in all it was a very pleasant stay indeed and the room, breakfast and staff cannot be faulted at all. I would definately highly reccomend this one.

    Average Rooms-Great Location

    from

    I spent 5 nights at the Gray d'Albion while working at the Palais des Festival (which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel). The hotel is perfectly fine, nothing special but then again nothing offensive. The room and bathroom were clean but worn. I had a balcony that looked out on to the inner courtyard (nothing spectacular) but it was nice to get a breeze from the sliding door. The only really great part of the hotel is the outdoor dining area where breakfast is served. Lovely! The staff was friendly and accomodating and the location is quite convenient to the Croisette/beach & main shopping area. If you get a good deal on this hotel, stay there. You can't beat the location....so, who cares if the rooms are only average? How much time will you be spending in your room while in Cannes?

    No Four stars this....

    from

    Checked into what was supposed to be a renovated deluxe room with a balcony and a view. Right from the lobby where the carpets seem to be in dire need of a cleaning..to the room, I was in for a rude shock given the rate of the room. The staff was pleasant occassionally, however they didnt appreciate too many questions.

    Great Stay

    from

    We stayed here for 11 nights over Christmas and New Year 2004. The Hotel is modern and not as impressive and fancy as the Carlton or the Majestic. Service is excellent though, very friendly, effective and fast. From the bellboy to the breakfast service in the room (until noon!) and the maids who smile to you even if you only let them into your room by 3 PM. Look for one of the packages they offer for stays of four nights or more and for a room on the higher floors which offer a great view over the old town. Extras are expensive as mentioned in other reviews but overall the price/quality ration is very good for the region. Rooms are not really big but perfectly furnished and equipped and have very comfortable bathrooms. Overall: EXCELLENT

    Luxurious and Friendly

    from

    This hotel is not by the water, although only 2 short blocks away. The room I got was an average size corner room with a spacious balcony overlooking the busy shopping street below. Best part of the room is the bathroom, with lots of marble, nice toiletry and a foot-cleaning toilet :) The hotel is large but has an intimate feel to it, more like a boutique hotel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. However I didn't realize the use of beach chairs and towels was not complimentary to hotel guests until I was slapped with a euro$30 fee PER DAY. Overall I enjoyed the experience, although I probably won't stay there again unless the price is very good. (I stayed at this hotel in September 2004.)

    Lots of extra fees

    from

    We stayed at the the Gray d'Albion in June for 7 days. The one good point was the hotel is very near the beach. However the decor was a bit shabby and dated and the room was small which you wouldnt expect for the price. Also I was suprised at how many extras you have to pay for - the hotel beach cost us £26 for 2 people for 1 day. We ended up using the free public beach when the reason I chose this hotel was for its private beach. Also parking is really expensive (around £70 for a week). I think this is probably in common with all central Cannes hotels though so if I went again I would stay outside Cannes and just visit for the day.

    A great place to stay

    from

    The best thing about this hotel is that it is in a quiet street between the Croisette and the shopping eldorade rue d'Antibes. Rooms are spacious by French standards. They seemed a bit worn, though. The hotel is close to everything in Cannes and has its own part of the beach. Service and food there was good.

    Absolutely Perfect!

    from

    Hotel Gray D'albion is a perfect place to stay in Cannes. We spent 3 days there in August 2003. The hotel is in an excellent location for shopping and the beach. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean, spacious and furnished nicely. We spent most of our time on the beach and the staff there was amazing. The beach restaurant food is very fresh and tasty...I'm still craving the salad I ate everyday.
