Hotel Majestic Barriere - facade

Hotel Majestic Barrier – Cannes – 5 stars – Tres chic, but be very careful..


..with the Wifi can can cost up to 300€ per day!!! Login as guest and it is free. So be careful and do not accept a password at check in if you don’t want surprises on your credit card bill.
It’s a hotel great for events but need to work on customer care and maintain the rooms in a better shape..

Stayed here for 3 nights last week. The view and the weather in Cannes is amazing.


LOCATION

Right infront of the convention center and on the croisette. Beach right across the road.


ROOMS

The rooms are nicely decorated but need now some maintenance. The bed was comfortable and the room quite silent also if i stayed on the 7th floor (last) i heard a party going on in the meeting space on the first floor….

Breathtaking view . Bad with no coffee machine in the room to enjoy it on the balcony. Also be careful 350ml of water costs 8 €…

I imagine this hotel is quite booked so the staff can be very un-polite and not much customer oriented. They do not care if you do not return. I had that feeling. They rip you of on currency when you pay with credit card taking you home currency …not good. So double check that you are paying in Eur and not with your currency, they have sky high currency exchange rate. And the WIFI costs 9 € per day but if you complaint they tell you to access as “guest” and it is free….not good…

Nice facade. Can´t pass unnoticed.


RESTAURANTS

No, no and no….cue up to 15 min to get into the breakfast room…this every morning and at any time. They need to work on that. Maybe breakfast coupons?

  1. It’s kind of sad to see that the Majestic Barriere does not really deliver. The hotel is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, but still seems not to be on the same level as many other properties. Thanks for the “warning”!
