Lone female foreign traveler books hotel w/o wifi
Posted Jul 7, 2016 on Orbitz
I booked a stay at the ResidHotel because orbitz said they had free wifi for guest... When I arrived, there was no wifi, and continued to be no wifi for my entire stay. The staff was super nice, spoke really good English, and gave me directions to the nearest cybercafe, which was helpful.. But the cafe closed at 7p, after which time I was stuck without being able to look up directions, call an uber, etc. which friggin sucked.
I booked the room knowing what I could be getting myself into at that price range, but was pleasantly surprised. The area wasn't as touristy as Cannes, which I prefer. A morning market is located right near the hotel and the beach access was super close. If the wifi had been working I would have been really pleased for the price, would have said it was a "steal." if there was AC, I couldn't get it to work, but my balcony provided all the air flow I needed. I would recommend this hotel to travelers (not tourist, mind you) that don't have super high standards, prefer to get off the beaten path, and don't mind navigating public transit. If you weekend at the four seasons, stay away... But if you're like me and frequent hostels, it's a decent amount for the room.
