We headed down to the seafront on a dark December night and wandered into the Hotel Welcome,. We ordered two gin and tonics which were served with snacks etc, it was so good we had a second one, waiter was very professional and the view was of course excellent

We spent the last days of a 6 week stay in France at the Welcome Hotel. We booked online and managed to get breakfast included on an on-line special. Breakfast is serviced fronting the Mediterrranean, either inside or out. Nice setting. We were upgraded to a waterfront room which made us happy. Room was nice - ample space, nice decor,... More

We enjoyed one night in Villefranche at the end of a week in Provence, and pleased we stayed there. A nice hotel with some history - a proud boast of famous people staying there - Cocteau, Hemingway (inevitably!), Hendrix (though not one was spotted whilst we were there). A very nice welcome on arrival and very helpful and clear guidance... More

Amazing views, spectacular location on the Mediterranean on a beautiful bay and harbor. We were delighted with our 4th floor balcony room and enjoyed watching the activity in the harbor. Olivier and the staff were very welcoming. We stayed 3 nights in mid-October and went to the beach to swim on 2 afternoons when it was 75 degrees F. We... More

Big fan of Rick Steves so when deciding where stay on the French Riveria, chose The Welcome Hotel in Villefranche-sur-Mer. Perfect choice. Location ideal for us. Room was good(could use an update) with balcony overlooking the harbor. Was a bit pricey, but probably worth it. Folks at front desk were fantastic. Helped us out a lot with reservations, general advice,... More

Hotel Welcome nestles on the seafront in the village of Villefranche sur Mer....a short drive from Nice. It is surrounded by restaurants and quaint shops. The hotel sits on the sea level but the village is built in the mountainous landscape and there are quite a number of steps going up to the Main Street level where the buses run... More

I've stayed here 4 times, over about 12 years. The hotel never disappoints, summer or winter. The views don't and can't change, because it looks straight across the quayside into the arcade de Villefranche. The decor and room decoration change occasionally, but never for the worse. The service, welcome and ambience are always impeccable - everybody on the staff are... More

What a location! We recently stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute. The staff were excellent especially the reception staff who were so welcoming and helpful. The decoration in each of the rooms is so unique and interesting. A wonderful spot away from all the crowds and there is so many places nearby to visit? We will certainly be... More

We had a relaxing and comfortable 3-night stay at the quaint and picturesque Welcome Hotel in Villefranche-sur-Mer. The hotel is beautifully situated directly across the street from the bay, and is just steps from the shops and restaurants of Old Town. It’s a 15-20 minute walk from the train station, although there are stairs to contend with if you're carrying... More
