Finding a decent hotel for less than $400 a night in Cannes is somewhat of a challenge. This hotel offers up a great location, good, attentive service without a huge price tag. While it is expensive, it is not as expensive as some of the other hotels in the area.

Located within walking distance of just about everything in Cannes, the hotel offers a great location. While not directly on the beach, a short 5 minute walk will bring you to the section of the beach that this hotel uses. This area of the beach has tables and chairs that guests can reserve as well as a full service bar and restaurant. The beach can get crowded, so be sure to reserve your chairs at least a day in advance.

The hotel itself is clean, modern and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and more than willing to answer questions about the area. Just about everyone working at the hotel speaks English to some degree, so there really wasn't a language barrier.

There is also a small bar/coffee shop on the first floor with a small outside seating area. We found this to be the perfect place to grab a snack or end the day with a couple of drinks before calling it a night.

The rooms are a bit on the smallish side, but still plenty of room for a couple. Our room also had a outdoor balcony. Just like the bedroom area, the bathroom was a bit on the small side, just like the bedroom area. The only negative about the bathroom is the tub/shower is elevated off the floor a couple of inches. This, coupled with a high-sided tub makes stepping over the tub side a bit of a challenge for someone that is older, smaller in size (shorter legs) or a bit unsteady on their feet.

Overall, for the price, this is a great place to stay in Cannes.

Stayed for 4 nights and it is simply the best hotel for the price you pay. Nothing is to much trouble very clean and elegant as you expect in this area. Staff always have a smile on their face. Brilliant location for Cannes and their own beach although you have to pay extra is worth it.

Brilliant location for the beaches and shopping in Cannes- 2 mins from train station and 2 minutes from the beach with Rue d'Antibes next door. Very comfortable rooms- very clean, excellent amenities and efficient and quiet air-conditioning. Lovely selection of food at breakfast and a nice outdoor eating area. The staff were all very polite and welcoming and I felt well looked after: from an early arrival, the staff arranged a changing room and looked after our luggage to the excellent concierge service- very helpful, to the friendly staff at breakfast.

My only reservation is there are better beaches so look around rather than settling for the hotel's beach.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will go again.

Do NOT book this hotel or via agent, they have No controll over the booing system.

Personally I booked rooms for 3000 euro, guess what! Ending up in the lobby without any booking.

Show the service Center our booking and payment and of course they missed our booking

And the hotel is fully booked

Thanks for ruining our Holiday Hotel Barriere.

Very friendly and helpful staff. They noted that I am a repeat customer from booking.com and treated me very well! The location is excellent - right in center of town. Parking is sooo convenient. The view from the room was wonderful and cozy.
