Overall it was interesting to stay here. I think it was a bit cheaper, then I would have had totally positive experience; however it feels like for the price some small things could be improved. LOCATION: It is 5-10 minute walk from the Nice port, on a quiet street. Going to old town is about 30 minutes walk or else... More

It is a fantastic, artistic couple, very, very friendly, who owns and manages this lovely place. Everything was excellent except that we had to be very careful when taking showers because outside the bathtub there was no draining hole. But the bathroom itself was beautiful and funky. We highly recommend this marvellous little apartment hotel.

I stayed at the Villa from the 10th May with my husband for a week in the Art room. It was a long narrow room with no window or aircondition and only a door which leads to a small outside space and seating area. The room is very clean and cleaned every day. Unfortunately the bed was uncomfortable as so... More

Superb location near by the old port of Nice. Rooms are decorated by the owners and during breakfast team you walk their private garden and gallery. Walk time to old town of Nice is 10-15 minutes, and bus to Monaco departs almost front of the B&B. The only drawback is that there was't AC in the room, only fan -... More

I stayed in Villa Magdalena with my spouse and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The house itself was situated near the port and the city center (old town and new) was within walking distance, but the neighborhood was far enough from the commotion of restaurants, bars and traffic. As a person who values peace and quiet,... More

It is a historical country house in five minutes from the old port of Nice. Each studio is equipped with kitchen, has own bathroom with a shower and a toilet. Breakfasts are covered in private part of a country house or in a garden. Very silently and comfortably.

I think it was the most interesting room I ever stayed in. The design is fantastic, at first you don't want to unpack, you want to have a look on the room. Moreover, you want to have a look on the whole villa, and feel sorry you can't do that :) but on breakfast Nadia shows some of her and... More

We booked the place for a one night after our journey to Corsica before the flight back. We found the villa very close to the port and got a nice, clean modern studio. The place is very tiny and calm not far from the center of Nice and the Place Garibaldi with very good oysters in Cafe Torino. The breakfast... More

We booked the Villa Magdalena on the reviews we had seen on Trip Advisor and it did not let us down. The family who run the villa are lovely and very helpful and breakfast is a delight. Sitting in an oasis in the center of Nice enjoying lovely french food, surrounded by art work, a white rabbit and parrot was... More

What a charming place to stay in Nice! The personal artwork and decorations were delightful. The B&B is in a great location -- quiet with beautiful views of Nice. We stayed in the room "The Woman" which is a small BR with small bath and kitchen area and a nice seating area outside with views of the city. Very pleasant.... More
