Fodor's Expert Review Five Hotel
1 rue Notre-Dame, Cannes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 06400, France
Housed in the town's old post office, steps from the Palais des Festivals, Five has a stylish interior that evokes voyages to the Far East: decent-size rooms dressed in red fabrics blend with exquisite dark-wood furniture against all-white linens and bathroom fixtures, while amenities are plentiful—a rooftop pool, personal shoppers, jogging routes, yacht charters, and dog sitters are all at your fingertips. The view of Le Suquet from the Sea Sens restaurant (see Where to Eat) may be dazzling, but it's nothing compared to the food. Start the day with the buffet breakfast (€35 or €25 if prebooked); and don't forget to sample sweet treats from Jérôme De Oliveira (the World Pastry Champion) at Intuitions by J.
