Where To Stay In Cannes

If you want to know where to stay in Cannes and are looking for a hotel then location choices would normally fall into three areas.  The hotels along the Croisette which as you would expect are the most expensive, hotels along and off the main shopping street Rue D’Antibes and hotels further back on the other side of express way which runs along the northern end of the resort.  Although further out, hotels along the Boulevard D’Alsace often provide good value for money and sometimes include swimming pools.


If you are visiting the French Riviera and looking for a glitzy resort then Cannes is a great place to stay.  It’s smaller than Nice which has more of a city atmosphere.  There is plenty to do in Cannes which has a glorious sandy beach albeit the result of imported sand.  The resort also has excellent public transport systems and is on the main coastal rail line which runs from St Raphael to Monaco. Many of the best hotels in Cannes are located along the famous Croisette. Choose from the extensive list below:
