The Best Hostels and Cheap Hotels in Cannes
Cannes truly is one of the jewels of the French Riviera. The base of its eponymous Film Festival, the city is typical of a true French city, exuding style and class from every pore. Home of the rich and the famous, this is a great place to people-watch and, indeed, to enjoy life's finer things yourself, with streets littered with designer shops, and luxury yachts aplenty in the city's port. Popularized by Coco Chanel in the early 1900s, the city's beaches are incredibly popular. You can either spend a little and enjoy the exclusivity of hotel beaches or relax on the free public peaches, such as Plage du Midi and Plage de la Boca. From Cannes, you can take a short ferry to a number of beautiful islands, with the Ile Saint Honorat a particular highlight, with its Cistercian monastery still in operation to this day. The city doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg, though, with plenty of budget hotels available for your convenience, a few of which can be seen below.
Cheap and cheerful in fantastic area
Rooms at this hotel are silent, despite its fabulous setting, in a Provencal house just meters from Forville Market and many pleasant little shops, meaning you are right in the hub of the city. Just a short walk from the beaches and all the other sites, the location alone makes this worth your while.
The hotel is decked out in typically French style, and rooms are available for an exceptionally good cost given its location. While the reception is only open until 8pm, given notice staff will go above and beyond to accommodate latecomers. Rooms come with free Wi-Fi and exceptionally comfortable beds, and the reception is home to a very friendly dog! A continental breakfast is available for just 7€, and can be served on the beautiful patio, adorned with flowers and a lemon tree.
