We had a really amazing stay in the Appia Hotel in Cannes! The hotel is located just steps from the main street where there is lots of shopping and there are restaurants of all price ranges in every direction. The train station is about a 5 - 10 minute walk and across from the station is a large monoprix! If you don't need all the selection there is a "monop" just 1.5 blocks from the hotel. The hotel was clean and the air conditioning worked really well! People commented on the room being small but for two people the room was just fine! There was even a little closet to hang things and put stuff on shelves.
The beach is also really close to the hotel. Some hotels say "the beach is just 5 minutes away!" but then you walk down and find that the water is there but it is a private beach or inaccessible. This hotel really is just a 5 minute walk. If you just walk straight towards the water you will come to the public beach. We found the best place to be against the fence that separates the public and private beaches. If you do happen to walk a beach chair though they are only about 6.5 euros for the day at some of the private beaches.
We had an amazing time visiting the island of Marguerite and if you go make sure you walk across the island where you will see the most clear water! It isn't the best spot for suntanning and laying out for the day but really good for swimming and if you snorkel you can see some fish!
Highly recommend this hotel as a budget option for visiting the French Riviera and also Cannes turned out to be a perfect spot to go to the beach and do sightseeing!
