According to B who has stayed in a cosy French hotel in Cannes a few years back when he was there for work, most of the hotels in Cannes are tiny and costly. So when we visited Cannes city in the beautiful French Riviera back in October 2013, the first thing we did upon arrival was to find ‘his hotel’ so he could show me the cosy but costly hotel he stayed in.

Apparently ‘his hotel’ was still around and of course, evidence of me seeing the hotel in person was done via a snapshot! Too bad I couldn’t go inside to take more photos but I pretty much got the idea just by looking at the hotel from the outside.

The last cosy but costly hotel I can recall staying in was the Hotel in London during our European Escapade 2010. Although tiny, it was still a wonderful snug hotel with friendly staff, good service and an excellent location as well, which played more importance than our need for a spacious room when we made our booking.
If you’re planning to visit Europe any time soon, say Paris in France for example; worry no more about costly hotels in Europe! Whether it’s a 3-star hotel in France or a 4-star hotel in France, you are bound to find suitable accommodation at extremely reasonable rates, when vacationing in Europe. And when I say reasonable, I mean less than €100 for a 4-star hotel!
When and if I finally get to set foot in the city of romance Paris, I’d definitely be looking at these great deals too. Great hotel deals are always around online. You just have to look for them starting with the 3-star and 4-star stylish and charming QUALYS-HOTEL collection I mentioned earlier.
By the way, our day out in Cannes was a hot and humid affair. I got tricked by the weather forecast and arrived in Cannes in sweater and jeans. Although it did get cooler later in the day, I told B that if we get to visit Cannes again during the same wet month of October, I’m just going to confidently wear something skimpy LOL!

I’m leaving you with a few more photos of our Cannes visit. Next, I’ll probably blog about my romantic lovey-dovey lunch with B at Le Caveau 30 French seafood restaurant in Cannes. Until my next post, Merry Christmas to those celebrating and Happy holidays to the rest!
