With only 9 days to go, there are still opportunities for staying in Cannes for Midem. A quick scan of the available properties turned up a few 2-star budget hotels at under €100 a night. But these are, um, colourful is probably the most polite description – not exactly honeymoon locations. If you stay in Juan-les-Pins or La Bocca, there are rooms in the flat-hotels (or résidhotel as they are sometimes called). Check that you can check-in outside office hours if you arrive late or leave early, as part of the reason they are cheap is that they don’t offer round-the-clock front desk services.You’ll find some in the search engine at right.
The other option – particularly for those not travelling alone – is to book a studio or apartment in town. There is a full range, from ones with several bedrooms to smaller ones with beds and/or fold-out beds. Many have wi-fi connections. They start at under €900 and head upwards (there is no limit in a town like Cannes but the good news is that there is an absolutely huge range which means you can always find something).

If you use a car, there is an underground car park under the Palais that you enter from the Pantiero direction.
