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
The hotel is in a really great location it is less than an ten minute walk to the beach, the film festival building, and the old town. Less than ten minutes in the other direction is a grocery store in case you need one.
The hotel room has no carpet which I love as it feels more clean. It also has a shower you can actually step into. Most tubs in France are way high and hard to get in and out of.
The decor is modern. We found the mattress rather hard but most of the mattresses in France seemed hard. There is a nice large window that will open. I wouldn't recommend opening it if you are a light sleeper as you hear scooters and garbage trucks all night (remember you are in a city). On a plus the A/C is great especially for France!
I also got a kick out of the 90s pop art in the hotel and I found it very interesting. All in all I think this was a really nice hotel...I just wish the bed was softer.
A reasonably small modern hotel, located less than ten minutes walk to the centre of Cannes and the famous shopping areas of Rue D’Antebes and Rue La Croisette. Here you will also find an array of interesting restaurants, many along the beautiful sea front. The hotel is also only a five minute walk to the main railway station where trips to Nice and Monaco can easily be visited.
The hotel’s pleasant neutral reception area is inviting as there are numerous seating areas, one of which leads out onto a small, but pleasant terrace. The staff are all very polite and very efficient.
The deluxe room was average in size and had everything we needed. It has to be said it was a bit tired in places and not really deluxe in standard, but it was comfortable.
Breakfast could have been better, and most definitely was not value for money.
Hotel Montaigne has a pool and spa facilities which were excellent and not overly populated.
We've been staying here twice a year for so long now that it's like being welcomed by old (or in this case, the young and charming) friends. It's a brilliant location only a few minutes' walk to the Rue d'Antibes and the Croisette (and Palais des Festivals if you're working).
We had our usual good room with a comfortable bed and a bath, desk and easy chair, although the bathroom may need a little remodelling soon and the curtains could do with new lining. I'm sure that's on the Montaigne's to-do list in the next couple of years.
I love the free bottles of water and goodies awaiting us on arrival. Breakfast is plentiful although my husband finds that muesli with chocolate chips is a tad childish but here we are, he's a grown up muesli man.
The pool and spa area is a bonus although time spent at the pool is now restricted to one hour per person per day which seems a bit petty (not that it stopped me enjoying it, it was quite long enough, it's just the restriction I find irksome).
A great experience greatly helped, as I said above, by the friendly staff.
