Central hotel with some reservations
Posted Sep 11, 2016
The hotel is very central: on the main walking strip (rue de antibes) and 1 block from the beach.
The rooms are normal sized for Europe (i.e. smaller than US standard), with a mini bar, a safe, ample closet space and a modern bathroom.
Parking in the building (28 Euros per day but that's about the same price all over Cannes).
I read a few reviews saying that the beach wasn't included in their rates and I didn't pay attention: if you book on Expedia (or any website apart from them directly and then only with an over priced package), the beach is NOT included. It costs twenty eight to forty per person per day! Considering their listing says they don't have a pool since they have a private beach you'd think it was included. We ended up finding a Groupon half the price with cocktails 2 beaches down (i.e. 2 minute walk or less from their beach).
Breakfast in the hotel is almost thirty euros per person...go to the bakery 1 block away and you'll pay half for 2!
The air conditioning made it slightly cooler but it needs to be upgraded. We had it on full blast (with the balcony doors closed so the off sensor wasn't triggered) and it was just tolerable enough to sleep (23C/74F).
The carpet was DIRTY burn marks or something. We saw another room before we received the one we stayed in and that one was a jr. suite and the carpeting was dirty there as well so bring flip flops (bathroom floor is spotless!).

Thank you for having taken time to fill out the questionnaire of Hotels.com and I do want to apologize concerning the quality of your stay that was not as high as your expectations.
By booking directly your stay with the reservations department, you have the possibility to ask for an offer with inclusive beach.
Concerning the price of the breakfast, it can seem a little bit expensive, but this is a buffet with fresh and quality products.
I hope however that you will give us a second chance and that you will come back at the Hotel Barrière Le Gray d' Albion Cannes during your next stay.
