Intercontinental Carlton Cannes - Facade

Intercontinental Carlton – Cannes – 5 stars – Film festival..


..and historical staircases in an impressive building and a beach just across the road.

I visited this hotel just some days ago and spend some amazing time.

The facade is the most impressive on the croisette in Cannes. You cannot walk past it without turning your head.


LOCATION

Location couldn´t  be any better. Sea front on the croisette.


ROOMS

I visited a classic room. Beds are comfortable but the decor is quite old and really needs to refreshen but the overall impression is of a cosy and classic hotel.

A small desk in the rooms makes business stops a bit easier.

LOBBY & COMMON AEREAS

Nice lobby. Two reception desks on each side and a very smily staff. Maybe some more furniture in the lobby would make it less cold.

Dj was playing cool music. People eating, meeting and enjoying the time there. Very different form the lobby with this blue electric lights.
