We just stayed at this hotel and were pleased on how clean and well located this place is. It's a 10-minute walk to the old town & restaurants, and parking is available on the street. Our stay was pretty quiet, but we are traveling off season. Our room is small, true, but we only come to sleep...most of the day...

We stayed at Hotel Darse for 7 nights in mid September. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again – great location, peaceful stay – a great value for VilleFranche for 76 Euros per couple. Location: Across from the old port and 5 mins walk to the port’s pebble beach, 5 mins walk to the old town full...

After a less than pleasing hotel in Nice, Hotel Darse was a fantastic surprise! We booked 2 sea view, no balcony rooms (French window). Both seemed recently updated - clean linens, nice amenities (free wifi) and stunning views. This was the cheapest hotel on our trip and definitely our favorite. Staff was helpful, breakfast was the usual buffet (cereal, yogurt,...

We have a flat in Villefranche which we rent to British holiday makers for much of the year. I visit regularly to deal with odds and ends so have stayed in most of the hotels in Villefranche. I used to stay mainly in the Welcome but when their prices rocketed I shot off elsewhere. The Darse used to be very...

I have stayed in many hotels in Europe, and rarely a 2 star, so I could not believe our Beautiful room with a view was only a 2 star. The value is Amazing also!!! We are a family of 5, so we rented a room with a view as a double, and a garden view as a triple, and it...

We have visited Villefranche a few times and have always wanted to stay in this hotel! We are so glad we now have; we had a lovely, peaceful stay, in clean pleasant surroundings. Don't expect too much - it is a 2 star hotel, and as such is very simple. However we had very few complaints. Our room on the...

We know Villefranche quite well having visited for many years, but we only booked the Darse as all other accommodation in Villefranche was full on the dates we required following our annual stay in Nice...and it proved to be serendipitous! Many other reviews comment on the fact that the hotel is not as easy to get to as many of...

It was beautifully located near the water and quick access to the small quaint town of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Only 15 min walk from the train station. The rooms were clean and air conditioned, and the receptionist was very helpful and friendly. For only 77 euros for a double without a view of the water, the hotel was a great deal! Villefranche-sur-Mer...

We stayed at Hotel Darse at the end of April. The staff were all so friendly and made you feel very welcome. We had a lovely room with a sea view and balcony. The price was fantastic for the size of the room and for the view which was breathtaking. Breakfast was relaxing on the covered patio and unlike some...

This is a family-run hotel, it was renovated in March 2011. The owner was very nice and helpful, service was pleasant and smily (from owner to cleaning ladies). We have got the best room in the hotel with a balcony and a beautiful view on a port with boats and ferries (ask for the room #303). It was spotless and...
