This hotel is right on the water in this dreamy little town. A room with a view is a special treat and worth asking for. We had a small patio that was spectacular. Great location just far enough from Nice. Great price for shoulder season (around $110€) for 3. Absolutely would go again. The room was cosy, clean and bright.... More

Quiet location and yet just 5 mins walk into the centre of town. Lovely views onto the harbour to see both sunrise and sunset. I'd recommend climbing (no lifts) up to a room on 3rd floor to benefit from the view. Hotel and rooms very clean and attractive considering only 2 stars. It's more of a 3 star hotel and... More

Located outside the busy part of town, and with a short walk (7min) into town. Our room had a balcony with ocean view which is highly recommendable. Staff was kind, breakfast was delicious and beach stuff was available for free at the reception. Would definitely recommend and will be planning to come back.

Location is good, close to the old port with a nice restaurant right next door. Front desk personnel is nice and helpful. Breakfast is expensive and rather poor. Garden view rooms are pretty small and have no mini fridge nor mini bar. The hotel has no parking. There are two beaches in Villefranche: the one closest to the hotel is... More

The owner, Mme Huguette Hurtevent, was EXTREMELY helpful and understanding during our visit. We had an issue related to our leased car, and she went out of her way to help us deal with the car company and communicate our needs in French. The hôtel has a view of the port...in à lovely location and near restaurants and activities. It... More

This is a super good value hotel. My room was spacious and nicely decorated - though a little sparse eg no pictures and some of the furniture was a little tired. The en suite was compact but new and fresh and both rooms were scrupulously clean. I would definitely recommend a sea view room with a balcony as this was... More

Stayed in two different rooms, a triple on the first floor and a double on the third floor, Both rooms were clean and had various advantages and disadvantages. However, you really could not beat the view from the third floor balcony. A quiet part of the town, a bit of a walk to everything, but not too much and very... More

Villefranche Sur Mer is the quieter alternative to Nice. We loved it!! The hotel is a bit of a walk from the train station, but that walk puts you just outside the congestion of the central tourist area. The room was updated and spacious. The price was reasonable. The staff was very friendly. And the breakfast was great, especially taking... More

I was staying here for about 10 nights and I had a small room with garden view. For the 10 days it was a nice stay and the breakfast was consistent. A typical french breakfast with sweets, croissants, marmelade and even heary things like a boiled egg and one kind of cheese. Juices and fruit salad are also served. Coffee... More
