... jasmine, woods, amber, and musks. I also got jasmine incense, half of an egg carton of soap (scents: magnolia, rose, honeysuckle, lavender, orange blossom, and jasmine), and a white flower scented candle. My rooms at home in MN (and myself) are going to smell so beautiful!
Overall, it was an amazing weekend of traveling. I am looking forward to many more in the upcoming weeks! I am loving how I can have mini-vacations almost every weekend! Adieu for now!
... the Monacan princes. We also got to see all the very expensive yachts which lined the harbour, like seriously ridiculously huge and fancy - the most luxurious of their kind was the Lady Moura which belonged to some Saudi Arabian royalty man or something and the name of the yacht was written in gold on the side of the ship (ridiculous)! apparently it is worth just over $100 million (no worries). In Monaco, taxes are not required to be paid, making it a ...

... we still ended up getting back to campus really late, even though we did virtually nothing.
On Friday, me, Olivia and Jenny skipped our last day of class and ventured out into Cannes for breakfast, which we had never done, and did some more shopping until we had a farewell drink back on campus with our director because this was the last time we would see her. Instead of it being a relaxing, stress free last day in France, most of the day was spent ...
... was some father and son thing on rue Montaigne. Therefore we disembarked at the terminus and set off at a brisk Livingstonian pace to find said ice creams. After ten minutes and several turns I was beginning to lose the faith but was saved by a gendarme. Known as they are for their courtesy and desire to help Les Ros Bouef, this one was as you’d expect. At first incredulous I had stopped him then gave his response in high speed French, “Allez a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Renoir Cannes
The gentleman who works the night shift was the BEST(alfonzo i think)! he helped us with taxi's, restaurants, trains, late night snacks... The hotel is very clean and the location is perfect.
Un palace au prix d'un 3 étoiles
Décor magnifique, cuir, moquette, etc ... Super design et à la fois luxueux. EN plus ont traverse une seul route et on est directement en centre ville.
Excellent kid-friendly hotel
We stayed for one night at this hotel in July, after spending a week in Aix-en-Provence. We stayed in a suite for 4 people (two adults & 2 kids) and it was perfect. Nice size, good price, very cheerful and well located for walking to the beach. It was also a very convenient place to stay just before flying from Nice Airport, as it only took us 25-30 minutes from the hotel to the airport. The front desk staff was very warm and helpful - Gerald especially, but really everyone we interacted with.
Good SAfe Bet
I originally booked another hotel and after seeing the reviews on Trip advisor, did not wasn't to chance it. I booked with Expedia and although there was a no refund policy, they did manage to cancel my previous booking and book me at the Renoir that had such a good review on trip advisor. What a good decision, it lived up to the expectation which was good location, clean, modern, good room facilities (bathroom, mini bar, good size bed etc..) We would stay again and recommend to anyone. The only thing you would want to add to the hotel is a swimming pool and a sea view. There maybe better ones out there for the money, but until they appear on Trip advisor, I wouldn't take the chance, play it safe with this hotel in Cannes unless you need more facilities.
Great find in the expensive French Riviera
What a great hotel and a reasonable price. Newly renovated 9 mths ago with marble bathrooms and a good choice of rooms - see their web site for the options - very accurate descriptions.
Modern white & cream decor with air conditioning, sealed windows, very clean, friendly service and car parking for 15 euro a day nearby. It was a great base from which to explore Grasse, St Tropez and Antibes. Although it's not on the beach, it's only a 10 mins walk there and same distance to the old town. It's located just up from the 'main action' but perfectly walkable and easy access with a a car to the main roads for exploration days.
We really loved this boutique hotel at such a great price for the area. Will recommend it to family & friends.
Great modern room, large bathroom, central location. excellent service.
Fantastisches, renoviertes Haus nur ein paar Minuten von der Croisette und den Läden entfernt. Wir hatten eine fantastische Suite. Alles war brandneu. Die kleinen Angestellten waren sehr aufmerksam und habe immer gern geholfen. Würde wiederkommen und fand es viel besser als das Carlton oder andere Häuser in Cannes.
The '50s Hollywood style at the Hotel Renoir
We found this charming boutique hotel on the [---] website and didn't regret staying there. It is an oasis of calm on a busy road only 10 min walk from the Croisette, restaurants and shops. We stayed in a luxurious suite that had walls covered with white leather, photographs of Hollywood film stars and old dated furniture with mirrors and ornament in leaf of gold and silver. You wouldn't expect anything less in Cannes...! It was absolutely wonderful and I would definitely stay there again.
Fantastic renovated property a few minutes away from the Croisette and shopping. We had the suite and it was fantastic. Everything was brand new. The staff albeit small was always helpful and willing to help.
Would stay here again- much better than the Carlton and other properties in Cannes.
Loved the Renoir
Just back from a 6 night stay at the Renoir and was surprised to see there were no reviews of it on here. Was very tempted just to keep it to myself but thought I'd better share. Located in a quiet side street not far from the rail station, the Renoir is an oasis of calm. I would have sworn I was the only guest there if I hadn't seen all the other breakfast trays - it was really quiet and I slept well. The rooms are beautifully decked out in Provencal material and are very spacious.
Mine had a table and a kitchenette which was great for eating breakfast and your own food. All plates and utensils provided, as well as a fridge and microwave. Breakfast may be a bit expensive at 12 euros (my rate included it) but it was an excellent continental breakfast with all sorts of pastries and breads, plus juice and hot drink. For a small supplement you can add cheese or ham. Unusually for a hotel of this size, there is room service during the day and evening and there is also a small bar in reception. Add to this the friendly staff and I've no hesitation in recommending this family-run hotel to you. Just don't tell too many people!
