We stayed at the Villa Rivoli for one night after our river cruise in the South of France finished. We did not wish to fly out the same day on our arrival in Nice, so needed a reasonably priced, yet central hotel for one night before flying home. It was also in the part of Nice that was not too...

We really enjoyed our three night stay at this lovely hotel. Three blocks from the Promenade de Anglaise, the location is perfect. I think the people who complain about the small room sizes have failed to take into consideration that this is an authentic converted home from the Belle Epoch period. Rooms are on the small side but since we... More

A friend & I stayed July 4-9 booked on line & requested 2 beds. Arrived very late & was given a basement (dungeon room) with 1 bed & was told that was all available. Unfortunately it was crawling with ants. Next day we were moved to another basement room which was horrendous very small & dark we said we'd be... More

We stayed in the Villa Rivoli in June. The hotel was quaint with beautiful character and a lovely breakfast/sitting room. The wifi free which is a plus. The room was very small (middle tier room category). It was fine for our purpose but I can't image staying for more than 2 nights. I thought the customer service could be improved.... More

Stayed at this hotel from 15-18th July. We had no problems with this hotel. Our room (9) and shower were off good size and we enjoyed having a balcony overlooking the lovely garden. Didn't find noise a problem and the neighborhood is not noisy at all in our experience. The staff were very helpful and charming. We had breakfast there... More

This hotel is a very short walk from the beach and Walk of the English. There is a beautifully decorated salon and a garden where we had breakfast each morning. The morning after we arrived there was a plumbing problem in our room (the toilet would not flush and the shower water would not drain) and when I told the... More

Poor sound insulation between rooms, very noisy neighborhood, small room, very temperamental shower. In general, advertised as something better than in reality (as is the whole of South France). The only positive is the cleanness. I stayed in similar hotels (old transformed villas) in other European cities which were spacious, sound proof and genuine - not the case here.

We booked this room approximately 3 months in advance. Room was not ready when we arrived which was fine. They put our luggage into what we thought was the luggage room and i questioned whether we were blocking a door and they said no. Off we went for a few hours and when we returned were surprised to find our... More

Just finished a 3 night stay with my 9-year old daughter at this charming little hotel. The location is ideal for walking to all the main collection points in Nice (bus to airport or train station), also, so very near the beach! Staff were welcoming and friendly, and the room, though small, was nicely decorated in the Period style of... More

This small hotel is well situated, few minutes walk from the beach and the promenade. The rooms are quite small and dark, but we knew this from the previous reviews,the rooms overlooking the garden would be better. However they are clean and have everything you need. The bathroom was very disappointing, extremely compact, with the smallest shower cubicle I've ever... More

Chère Madame, Thank you very much for your time spent in giving us the very detailed information. Indeed, all our guests enjoy the excellent location of the Villa Rivoli, very closed to the sea and as well very closed to the pedestrian zone with its boutiques and bistros. The Museum Massena is just at the end of the street Rivoli... More
