Splendid by name and splendid by nature, the Belle Époque-style Hotel Splendid, on the Cannes waterfront, overlooks the yacht harbor and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea. Needless to say, you’ll be joining the high rollers with a stay here. Start your days with breakfast in the Offenbach Lounge or, better yet, on the terrace, with views across the harbor to the world-famous Palais des Festivals, host of the city’s seminal film festival.
The historic hotel, located on the iconic Croisette boulevard, dates back to 1871. Thankfully, the blockbuster view over the harbor hasn’t changed, so Hotel Splendid still boasts Cannes’ best views. What’s more, it’s just steps away from the beautiful waters and stunning beaches of the city. If retail therapy is your preferred method for unwinding, you’re in the right place; there’s a plethora of luxury shops here, too, just waiting to be perused.
Good to know
Please note that a city tax of €1.80 per person, per night is payable directly to the hotel upon check-out.
Superior rooms come with a view out over the azure sea. Each room features an inviting color palette and charming décor that typifies the South of France.
Breakfast is served buffet-style, with a wide range of pastries and cooked dishes available, either in the lounge or on the sun terrace facing the Palais des Festivals. Outside the hotel, Cannes is bursting at the seams with restaurants and bars, both along the waterfront and in the shopping streets behind the hotel, so you won’t have much difficulty finding top-notch French cuisine nearby.
Cannes is a glamorous resort town on the French Riviera. Hotel Splendid overlooks the city’s famous harbor and is just steps from the Palais des Festivals and Promenade de la Croisette, which runs along the waterfront. The city’s stunning beaches are also nearby, and the center of town lies just behind the hotel, where shopping enthusiasts will no doubt spend most of their time.
How to Get There
We booked for only 2 nights but ended staying for 4 nights !
Exceptionally Clean! Very warm and friendly housekeeping staff. But as not as big as I would have imagined from their website. [ this is our honeymoon for 3 weeks so we have big luggage’s that we ended have to sort of just keep the essential and keep the big luggage in the car. ]
Is a boutique not over the TOP but with relatively wide selection of French delights fresh fruits as well as ham and sausages!!
I love the way they present the cakes btw we have this frequent flying visitor to, so
Special Thanks to Jessica who always help us to chase away the big birds ????and serving us from the heart with her smile.
Very friendly and helpful; the lady even help us to book doctor appointments as I feel under the weather.thank you.
You have to park slightly away from the hotel. So this place is perfect if you like to walk a lot like myself. I did morning jog and yoga by the beach very calming and relaxing things to do after or before breakfast!
As We think about value not price;
We stayed in a room facing the harbour / sea so it’s a bit more pricey. But overall it is worth every penny for the comfort and the experience they offer! I recommend this hotel for both pleasure and business .
I came to Cannes for a business trip and stayed at the Hotel Splendid for 4 nights. It was absolutely WONDERFUL.
The rooms are very clean and the bed is COMFORTABLE. After a long trip from the US here it is so welcomed. I had a room with a view of the harbor and it was just... oh... amazing. I opened the door and heard someone playing the accordion downstairs during the evening near the New York New York restaurant and it just made me fall in love with France even more. Just magic... Also, the rooms are air-conditioned which is so nice given it can be humid here.
It's super convenient to the Palais - literally across the street. And TONS of shopping and places to eat just steps away.
The biggest reason why I recommend the hotel - THE STAFF. They truly love working here and take great pride in making sure your stay is the best it can be. They couldn't be more accommodating or helpful. I was chatting with a woman at the front desk who's worked here for 14 years. COULD NOT BE ANY NICER! The staff in the restaurant are also extremely nice! It was pouring here today and they set me up in the corner with fresh coffee and some pastries so I could do my work.
In summary, Hotel Splendid is just that - SPLENDID. It's very charming, clean, convenient to everything in Cannes, and the staff is just wonderful. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
This hotel is centrally located to everything in Cannes. It’s within easy walking distance to everything. The staff was helpful and multilingual. The rooms were very clean and quaint. The bed was of moderate comfort. There was some noise from the street, not soundproof rooms. The bathroom was spacious with several amenities. There was a bathtub with a shower hose, but not a shower.
