The whole place was very dark making it often seem or be unclean. The bathrooms and showers were not all that clean and it was strange giving our one key back every time we left. We also had bed bugs in our first room, which didn't seem to phase the attendant we told... Yikes! Bed bugs should never just be shrugged at! If I stayed in Cannes again it would be worth splurging and staying some place nicer.
Had a very nice stay with a lovely Indian gentleman that helped carry my suitcase the 3 flights of stairs and translate French into English for me. Shower and toilet were both very clean. Excellent location. The only thing I can complain about is the single bed duvet on my double bed. Luckily it was just me in the bed.

It was a very average basic hotel: on the plus side the location was fantastic and the staff were pleasant. However, on the minus side, the room wasnt ready when we got there, security was lacking as staff were not always manning reception where the room keys were while the front door was open, and our room was only cleaned once out of the three nights: not very good when you come back from the beach and inevitably there will be some sand on the carpet.
A little bit loud at night..the door bell plays loud all the time but it just a problem with an easy solution...;)
I thought the reception staff were very poor. I arrived at reception the day i was to check in and no one appeared at reception. There was a buzzers alerting them to peoples arrival but they chose to ignore it, i then tried ringing them and could hear it ringing upstairs but no answered. I ended up leaving and coming back later and was unable to get an explanation due to a language barrier. If i had not paid the deposit i would have stayed else where. Having said all the hotel itself was great.
The Hotel is clean, it's near the beach and the staff is really friendly. Great Hotel for less money.
At the arrival the receptionist said he never received my booking (even if I had the confirmation email) and refused to give me the room at the price I booked it. So i lost my booking fee and had to look for another hotel. When asked about where we could park our car, they said the hotel doesn't have a parking (even though it says so in the description) and told us to park in a square nearby. We did so and the next day we discovered that our car had been removed(payed 160 euros to have it back)

The Claremont is very, very close to the train station. I felt very safe all through Cannes even very late at night. This hostel was perfect for me as I got a private room for 50 euros and went in and out as I pleased. There were fresh towels and a sink in my room, overall very suitable, no complaints at all.
The location is wonderful, a 2 min walk from the train station and a 10 min walk from the beach, and the rooms are fine, but there were a few problems. First, the room seemed to have been recently renovated, which was nice, but it also seemed like it had been renovated in a hurry. The carpet was all bunched up, and the were spots where there was no paint. Additionally, I found stains on the linens, towels, and curtains. Also, we saw a staff member spending the night in the common room :/
I have never written a review for a place before but I had to for this Awful.paid to have bedroom cleaned but cleaner never did We had to get manager when we arrive to get sheets for the bed and make the bed ourselves Next night the towels weren't change and room was flithy They would want to sort out cleaner before they do anything
