The location couldn’t be better at the five-star Radisson Blu 1835 Hotel & Thalasso in Cannes, an elegant edifice right on the seafront, overlooking the lively port. Step outside the hotel, and it’s only a five-minute stroll to the Palais des Festivals et de Congres and Les Croisettes. But stay here, and you’ll see what helped this TripAdvisor GreenLeaders Bronze-level stay also snag a Certificate of Excellence.
Signature colors of ivory and purple set a refined scene throughout, and your abode makes a perfect escape from all the bustle below, too. The adjoining Les Thermes des Marins Spa and Thalasso – with scores of treatments rooms, indoor and outdoor seawater pools and a sea-view Jacuzzi – is a reason for visiting in itself. And the height of luxury is the roof, where you’ll find a fabulous restaurant with a 360-degree view of the famous old harbor, sea and city.
Rooms and suites
Sea View Deluxe rooms have balcony views of the Med or the old harbor, and are painted in calming neutral shades. Thoughtful touches include light-therapy alarm clocks and Nespresso coffee machines. Mediterranean suites offer lovely separate living rooms.
The aptly named 360 restaurant on the roof has impressive views wherever you look, and signature dishes include whole sea bass cooked in a salt crust. There’s also Le Bio restaurant at the spa, offering healthy, Japanese-style fare by the pool.
Les Thermes Marins Spa and Thalasso certainly knows how to offer the best in pampering. There are 46 treatments rooms, a heated indoor and outdoor seawater swimming pool, a sauna, a Jacuzzi, a hammam and a multi-sensory shower.
The hotel is ideally located right on the seafront, a five-minute walk from the Palais des Festivals et de Congres, and next to the charming old quarter of Le Suquet, with its cobblestone streets, boutiques and cafés. It’s also right in front of the port, which is always packed with boats.
How to Get There
Booked a family room here and it was pretty decent in size especially since we were coming from a pigeon hole in Nice :-) The beds were comfortable but the bathroom could be a little better. We had an issue with the kids shower door which was mentioned but never fixed. Also, house keeping would do our room each day only after 2:00pm which I found strange. It was like a middle time for morning make-up and evening turn down. Would recommend to skip breakfast as it is not up to the mark.
The pool is in another inter-connected building and is nice for a dip and relaxing. I would not recommend for young children due to the peaceful & calming environment. The Maema beach club which is associated with the hotel is also pretty good.
The reason I would still consider coming back to this hotel though would be the location and the service at the front desk. The concierge (alex or alexis) was really great and gave us some really good recommendations.
Location-wise the hotel is close to all the main areas with some really good restaurants and bars nearby, and that was the real blessing.
This is a good Radisson hotel with all the signature specialities of a Radisson and The Carlson Group.
Reception staff are friendly and polite. As always, the food is good, service is good and the swimming pool area is very useful during a summer trip.
Good size and well appointed rooms.
This is however a very old building, and it very badly needs renovation in multiple area. Most importantly, this hotel needs a painting job urgently.
Location is brilliant. Right in front of a public beach across the road. And few minutes walk to many restaurants and other attractions. Marina is right in front of the hotel.
It gets a bit noisy at times. But it’s rather common in Cannes.
We had a big private business dinner organized on the roof top and we had all pre selected our food a month before. Since i dont eat fish and lamb I had selected vegeterian option. But both my starter and main course came when all the others had finished eating (and my plate was made of the same veg the others had with their fish/meat) with the result that i ended up not eating cause had eaten a lot of bread in the meantime (which we also had to ask for numerous times, like the wine). Definately not a good experience. At least the desserts were nice, especially the lemon one. Chocolate fondant was dry, but being the only food item that came in time, I just gobbled it up.
Paid $500 a night for this room to start. Checked in and while walking to our room we were seeing paint chips on the walls and the baseboards falling apart. Opened the door to the room (with an ocean view) to nothing but trees and cars/Moro scoots. Phone didn’t work (asked twice to fix that). No bath towels. Shower leaked. $40 for two drinks upstairs. Pool was a nightmare to get too. Worst stop of our two week vacation in Europe!!!!!!!!
Stayed here for a short visit this time so just booked a Bussiness room it had a nice veiw of the harbour , the bed was comfortable and the shower is very good , I love the 'this works' products breakfast had a wonderful choice had a very nice stay and look forward to visiting again hopefully for longer . Only thing I was dissapointed in was the roof terrace was booked for a private party so we just had some stools to sit on in the bar area , from what I could see there were only about 15 people there for a large area , the bar staff were very nice and friendly and apologised ,hope this does not happen again on our next stay
