We didn't actually stay here,but came across it while we were on a walk in the area. The location is super - on a plateau high above the coast. It is peaceful and quiet, has amazing views, and a nearby botanical garden to wander round. The staff were so helpful and friendly when we called in for a drink. The... More

Quiet hidden gem on top of Villefranche sur Mer with beautiful seaviews and surroundings. The hotel is very clean and peaceful. Beautiful garden full of olive, cherry and lemon trees. At night you can enjoy the view of fireflies in the garden which makes this place magical. I had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this place. Very nice... More

So, we've decided to go back to Monaco for the Grand Prix. Got tickets and need somewhere to stay. There's lots of apartments available within 10km but the price ranged from extortionate to galactic! Nice didn't really appeal to us, big city and very busy. We went "en famille" with our 8yo son and the bright lights of one of... More

It is difficult to find accmmodations of value on the Cote D'Azur, so we were pleasantly surprised with this hidden hotel gem. Friendly, attentive service, nice spacious and clean rooms and a good breakfast. A large swimming pool is available too. Great views of the surrounding towns (Cap D'Ail, Villefranche sur mer). Prices are very reasonable and much cheaper than... More

Stayed here a few nights to pick up our lease car. A bit out of the way but worth the effort to find. More than obliging hosts. Hotel cannot be classed most palatial, it is not the most modern either, but it does have a good atmosphere. Large room, good size balcony, separate kitchen, bathroom, toilet, great pool, good local... More

After reading favorable reviews which I based my decision on I felt it necessary to provide a different perspective of Hotel St. Michel. Hotel St. Michel at first glance appears charming positioned in the scenic hills above the towns of Beaulieu-sur-Mere and Villlefranche. Its curb appeal is certainly positive however unless you plan to sleep in the lobby or breakfast... More

My wife and I found this serene, quiet, family-run hotel while visiting the French Riviera. It is situated off the Moyenne Corniche, near Villefranche Sur Mer, between Nice and Monaco, less than 30 minutes from Cote D' Azur airport. We found the family (Helene, Marc and their daughter) to be friendly and accommodating in every respect. This hotel features: a... More

Stayed one week and loved it. We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. It was great to have a swimming pool in the hot July weather. It's a good idea to get directions ready before you leave home. Driving thru Nice from the airport we missed the turn off on Avenue Olivula the first go round. It is... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at Hotel Saint Michel. The owners Marc and Helen are some of the warmest and most friendly people we met on our entire trip through Europe. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing stay away from the noise and traffic of Nice then look no further! The view... More
