Originally posted on January 12, 2006. If you’re still making plans, don’t despair. Midem 2006 is going to be one of the busiest in years. That’s the good news. The bad news is that all the hotels in the centre of town are full. So you’re going to have to try either for an apartment (see ads elsewhere on the page) or look further afield.
Out of town, my first choice would be for Juan-les-Pins. It’s about 6-8 kilometers, but the train will whisk you to the Palais in a few minutes. There are deals from about €190 for three nights in some hotels. You could also hire a car or a mobylette. There are regular buses to Cannes from Juan-les-Pins. But you have to give yuorself lots of time to get on time to meetings.
