    5. Your country’s best hotel

    Hotel Barrière Le Majestic Cannes in Cannes is a highly rated hotel on TripAdvisor. The hotel has its own private beach for guests to use.

    6. Your country’s most expensive hotel

    The Plaza Athénée seems to be the most expensive hotel with one night costing from 1,000 to 3,000 euros per room. A luxury hotel with a ice rink in winter and a Dior health-care institute.

    Out of all the hotels I felt all provided high quality service, even though they stood at different price points. There was a range of different facilities available such as swimming pools and restaurants.
