Shock! Cannes does good value - not to say 'cheap'!

Here’s a simple and vivacious little spot right in the town centre. Tucked away in a commercial street, the Alnéa proves that you can do Cannes inexpensively without doing it on the cheap.

An admirable young couple took the place over recently, infusing it with life, fun and colour. It’s a two-star hotel, so don’t expect much in the way of space or opulence, and do expect to climb some stairs. The 14 rooms are scattered across three floors and there’s no lift.

But, like the rest of the hotel, those stairs are bright and enlivened by high-colour faux naïf paintings by a chap called Tritchi, of whom I’ve never heard. They’re very jolly, though.

Vows of hospitality

The rooms, if small, are practical, clean and cheerful with whites, blues and reds. And, for a two star, the touch is deft and delicate – with flowers and pretty cushions and curtains. The breakfast room is tight but happy like a primary school class room, which is meant as a compliment.

The couple couldn’t be more welcoming if they’d taken vows of hospitality. And, crikey, you’re a minute from the Palais des Festivals and two from the old port – for the price of a carton of cigarettes, the pair of you.
