Just seven minutes’ walk from Cannes’ famous and fashionable swathe of sandy beach, Hôtel Montaigne and Spa is a well-connected residence close to the city’s iconic sights. With bright, modern rooms, an on-site restaurant serving Mediterranean classics and a sun-splashed terrace (ideal for enjoying an aperitif), this hotel is a contemporary choice for a break in the sun on the stunning Cote d’Azur.
One of the hotel’s main draws is its spa. Relax and unwind in peace and quiet, with five treatment rooms and an indoor pool, hammam and Jacuzzi. When you’re not blissing out, you’ll find plenty of designer stores and restaurants in the local area. The glamour continues on the Croisette, where people go to see and be seen on Cannes’ long sandy beaches. You can enact your own awards ceremony at the Palais des Festivals, or make the very short stroll to the train station and visit one of the other towns along the French Riviera.
How to Get There
I rarely write a poor review but Hotel Montaigne is an exception due to its staff. It is a well located hotel and the rooms are acceptable (although I wasn’t keen on the sliding bathroom door without a lock). Our Junior Suite had a Jacuzzi style bath which was nice. The room was pricey but acceptable for Cannes. Parking is €22 a day (car goes underground in a lift elevator, safe for low sports cars) but I only realised after our stay that street parking was only €8. Room mini bar only had a bottle of water. Our room looked onto another building (photo). To borrow a UK to Europe plug adapter it’s €15. Breakfast variety was very limited even by French hotel standards. The biggest let down we’re the staff members we met, just very poor manners and not welcoming or friendly at all.
I arrived on an early flight and so got to the hotel around midday. Unfortunately this meant I was unable to check in until 3pm however, the staff were very welcoming and allowed me to change into my beach gear in the spa changing rooms and leave my luggage in their secure room. The changing room also has a shower which is perfect if you'd like to freshen up after a long travel day.
As many have mentioned, there isn't much to mention other than it is perfectly located for the train station and a 5 minute walk to the city centre. When exiting Cannes train station turn right and walk up the hill, cross the main road and then the hotel is a 2 minute walk from there. My phone map got a little lost and so may be useful to know this.
I was on the second floor in a standard room which was well appointed. Large comfortable bed, fridge to store personal food purchases and bath / shower. Modern and clean.
The only downside was the breakfast which i found expensive at Euro 19 but with limited choice. Spa / swimming pool and steam room are a nice touch if you have time to use them.
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay here! I stayed as a solo traveller needing to get away for a few days and it was the perfect hotel for this. The staff are friendly and speak great English and I would definitely recommend others to stay here.
Even when ordering food at 11 pm at night from uber eats they wouldnt allow me to eat it on their patio. As if they had a sushi bar and they had given me options. Furthermore i had a bottle of exclusive wine which they refused to open for me because it was not from their bar. Their pathetic and never coming to such rude and idiotic hotel. Construction across the street with jackhammer all morning. 0 sleep during mornings and same prices even though i had to leave room at 7 to not have headaches. Parking 22 euros!!?? Seriously on the street in fron is 8 euro per day. No smoking allowed but in bathroom through vent you will get smoke filling your entire room from staff smoking.
We stayed here for three nights over a weekend. The hotel is conveniently close to the bus/train station (5mins) but also under ten minutes to the centre of the town and Palais.
The room was fine with a comfortable bed, air conditioning, TV, safe and tea/coffee. The bathroom was a little small and the sliding door was a bit annoying. The extraction did not work so everything was misted up after a shower.
We did not take the breakfast or use the spa.
Overall a useful place to stay and no major issues were encountered.
Tucked on a small street and quiet. Short walk to the Blvd and great restaurants. Clean and comfortable. I was with a tour group and some folks on the tour luggage was misplaced to other rooms, however it was sorted and all was well.
