“Good location but nothing exceptional”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2008

We stayed for one night in this hotel. The staff were very friendly although not very well informed regarding where and when to take the ferry to the other islands.

Our room was small and the floor is wooden so noisy and squeaks when you walk around. There's obviously not very good sound insulation as we heard everybody's alarm clocks during the early hours of the morning and their conversations.

The bathroom was clean although tiny. The beds weren't very comforable. My husband is suffering from a sore back after just one night.

The best thing about the hotel is its location. Not far from the Croissette or the vieux port. I wouldn't recommend it for a long stay, but one or two nights fine.

Bring small bags as the lift is tiny!

Stayed 1 night at the Villa Tosca in one of the standard rooms on the first floor.
The hotel was refurbished about 3 years ago and looks quite stylish from the outside. Very good central location on semi pedestrianised street.
The entrance hall/reception tiny and there is a very small lift, but there is a nice breakfast/bar area on the first floor.
Our room was disappointing- small and dark and up a flight of stairs from the breakfast room on a sort of mezzanine level. It was superficially trying to be stylish,but furnished poorly and starting to show signs of wear. It was fairly clean though. The bathroom was tiny but functional. Creaky floors, so some noise from above. Street noise was minimal with the windows shut and shutters down. The air conditioning was working but didn't seem to respond to the controller.
Our "double bed "- 2 singles pushed together with single sheets was very hard and uncomfortable.
Overall impression was that the room felt cheap

We had breakfast included in our package and thought it was pretty good :selection of hot drinks, freshly squeezed orange juice,pastries,breads, jams, cold meats, boiled eggs, fruit, yoghurts etc. but not sure what they charge for it- wouldn't pay more than 10 euros though.
There are lots of cafes round the hotel offering breakfast with coffee, croissant, bread ,jams and orange juice for around 5 euros.

We chose the Villa Tosca for purely financial reasons-a deal through GTA hotels website for £50 including breakfast.
The hotel's standard room charge is 99 euros without breakfast. For what we paid ( equivalent of ~75 euros in high season), we thought the price was fine, but wouldn't have wanted to stay too long in our particular room.
Understand there are some superior rooms which are more expensive-,they may be better for longer stays, but for the rates charged there are better hotels to be had.

Overall our impression was that this hotel is basically a two star that was smartened up a little while ago and gained another star in the process,however it still has a hostel type feel in places.


We've stayed at several other 3 star hotels in Cannes, the Canberra, de Provence, Quality Riviera, Beausejour , to name a few ,all of which are significantly nicer than the Villa Tosca. Would recommend any of these in preference if the price is right.

Other hotels in Cannes offer deals most of the time- check out the cost comparison websites .Believe there is better value to be had in Cannes than here.

Entrance and reception are far from spectacular, basically nothing more than a corridor.

We stayed in the more basic room category, which was small but new, clean and very nice. The same can be said about the bathroom.

Hotel location is ideal, close both to station, city centre and beach. A good choice and not too expensive.

We stayed at La Villa Tosca for two nights. The rooms look pretty nice but don't look in detail! The bed sheets contained spots of blood, corners contain dust, dirty walls.

The first room was very big and looked OK. Apart from a big crack in the ceiling. Next morning we were woken up by water dripping trough the ceiling, at great speed (people in the room above us took a shower)
I informed the hotel staff about this problem, they promised to have a solution as soon as we would came back later that day. When we returned the gave us a room which was much smaller than the first. (the French way to thank for informing about a serious matter)
Furthermore they had moved our luggage themselves, without our permission.

Next morning we were woken up by the sound of a drilling machine, as renovation of the ceiling had started.

We had to pay full price, they said no sorry and they don't inform their customers about relevant matters. The hotel is dirty. My advise is to STAY AWAY.

We stayed at the Villa Tosca last week and had a very good experience. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful with a smile (which is rare in France!). The rooms are not big, but clean and of good standard for a 3* hotel. Aircondition, minibar and safe were a positive suprise. The living room with comfortable sofas and a large dining table for a family style breakfast was very cozy. Perfect location just behind Galleries Lafayette and the shopping street. The room rates were very reasonable. What else can you ask for? If you are in Cannes, don´t miss eating at MANTEL in the old town. This restaurant came highly recommended by the friendly receptionist at Villa Tosca!Excellent french cuisine!

Hotel La Villa Tosca was a pleasant surprise. We showed up in the early evening after a long trip by plane and car and we felt warmly welcomed. The staff are soft spoken but their smiles and welcomes were always appreciated.

We found the hotel to be charming itself with a many added little touches.

It is close to restaurants, monoprix, Gallerie Lafayette, Rue D Antibes and the sea front. There are many private lovely beaches that are a short distance away.

As it was very hot outside we wished that we could have turned the air conditioning on to stay a bit more powerful in our room.

I would recommend this hotel as a nice getaway to the sea.

  • Liked — The location in town and the hotels ambience.
  • Disliked — Needed a more powerful air conditioner.

Really liked this hotel. 70 Euro for a really good, recently decorated 3 star hotel right in the middle of Cannes, opposite a nice cafe. Excellent value, comfortable beds, friendly staff. Highly recommend it.
