I stayed here with my 12 year old daughter for 3 nights. It was on the same road as the train station so very convenient but had sound proof windows so noise was not a problem. The receptionist was very friendly and happily let us use the bathroom after our long journey, before our room was ready. She kindly told us when we could get properly settle in our room and we went off to get a drink for 45 minutes.
The room was on the top floor which the lift did not quite reach so you had to climb some stairs but we found this good exercise.The room was very bright and the bathroom and bedding all appeared very new and clean which was nice. The carpet was a little tired and it was not a huge room but big enough. Our only problem was the slanted roof - we both hit our heads many times as we used the space under the roof so this was a little frustrating. Looking in on one or two other rooms we noticed beautiful large almost floor to ceiling windows onto the side streets which were much nicer than our velux window but I presume they were not available for a twin room that we booked. So if booking try and check which room you have been allocated. Breakfast was good and in a small but light and airy room and open until 10am. Overall we were very pleased with our hotel choice as it new and clean and was very close to the old town and not far from a public beach.
I was visiting for a conference at Palais des Festivals. I picked Appia as one of the better value hotel options, and it was a great base for my visit. It's run by friendly people, with 24-hour front desk. I slept well in my small single room, and the breakfasts were fine. I found the wifi to be of variable quality, and maybe would pick somewhere with bigger rooms if I wanted to spend several hours per day working there, but if you're looking for a good-value base for a holiday or work visit I highly recommend it.

The hotel is located a short distance (10min stroll downhill, 15 min uphill) from one of the main restaurant areas in Cannes and is slightly off the adjacent street meaning there is little noise at night. There is parking for around 8 cars. The building is efficently and well looked after by the husband and wife team and they are a delight to guests giving assistance for places to visit and go to eat.
The hotel has no dining restaurant (there are many places to eat nearby within staggering distance if you dont drink and drive). Breakfast is served on a secluded terrace which somehow just feels like you are on holiday. There is also a sitting area and books to read if so inclined.
Given that this hotel/B&B is in one of the most expensive places in Europe to stay you should have no complaints about the facilites provided.
Evelyne is a delight. Mwah!
