My choice for our holidays was perfect, well decorated, furnished with french charm and fully equipped apartment with nice garden area. A short walk for beaches, restaurant, market, and not far away from city center but in quiet district. Thanks for Valerie for transfer and meeting.
Owner's Response: Hi Aselya,

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay so much at the apartment. And thanks for taking the time to post a review. We hope to see you back next year!

Excellent Time

Our company renter Palais Excelsior for the duration of MAPIC. It was a perfect choice, a very nicely decorated and furnished apartment. Unfortunately we did not have as much time to enjoy the apartment itself on our trip, but it was absolutely beautiful. The services provided by the Property Manager were also excellent and she was more than helpful.

It was a wonderful stay and I would definitely consider renting the apartment again, not only for a business trip but also for any future leisure trip to Cannes.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for Palais Excelsior. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back soon for your relaxing holiday in Cannes! Kind Regards, Jason, Jeszell and Valerie.

Our stay at the apartment was the perfect end to our honeymoon. We would honestly have to say it was nicer & cleaner than the 4 & 5 star hotels we stayed in during our honeymoon.

The apartment is in one of the best & most secure apartment blocks in Cannes (as we discovered it used to be a palace!). It's beautifully furnished & we had the best nights sleep there, with the shutters down the rooms were pitch black & the beds so comfortable. 3 bedrooms, two nice bathrooms. The courtyard was very pretty & we enjoyed our breakfast there each morning.

We could not have got a more perfectly located apartment, it was only a short 5 minute stroll to the market where we got our fruit each day, shops, beaches & main centre of Cannes. The street was quiet so we could easily park our hire car there when we explored further a field.

What we loved most was the fantastic information book in the house (explaining the history of the apartment, where to find English speaking doctors, hospital, local buses/trains/boats, the best local produce) it was more comprehensive than the 5 star hotels we stayed in & very informative. The owners also provided maps showing the location of the tourist office, supermarkets, markets, train, boat & landmarks in Cannes.

From the moment we first made contact they were amazing giving us further info, even arranging our transport to pick us up from Nice airport. We were welcomed with fresh flowers & essentials like milk.

It was nice to finally be able to do our washing & have a home a cooked meal one night from the local produce at the market (the kitchen was as well equipped as ours at home). The apartment really had everything we could need - free WIFI, safe, beach umbrellas, games, a big bath to soak in after an exhausting day out exploring!

We also discovered that the island where the Man in the Iron Mask had been imprisoned was only a 15min boat ride away! We didn’t realise this was there! We also followed a tip from the owners book & enjoyed a number of meals on the amazing ‘Suquet’ street, a pedestrian street full of amazing restaurants & well worth a visit. For only E15-25 you can enjoy a 3 course meal. All the waiters will come out asking you in & give a free glass of champagne, if you ask!

There was so much more to do in Cannes than we expected & the apart is brilliantly located, central to everything & perfectly appointed for us to enjoy & explore the area. Would highly recommend it.
