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

We stayed at the Welcome last summer for three nights and enjoyed every second. The location is excellent and the views are spectacular. This is a family run hotel and they could not be more gracious. It is clean, comfortable and I highly recommend it. They have a nice wine bar with outside seating and a great view. This was... More

Met friends and family from Spain, Paris and London who vacation in Villefranche every year. They own or rent apartments but have stayed at Welcome and highly recommended it. It is THE BEST hotel with THE BEST location and MAGNIFICENT view!! Service was excellent, there is a buffet breakfast but we opted for coffee and bread basket. There is a... More

We needed a few days to relax and soak up the atmosphere along the Riviera. It exceeds all that we had expected and more. The staff couldn't be more accommodating and helpful. The views are spectacular and the location is prefect. The wine bar in the lobby is just what you need for having a glass and watching the world... More

We had stayed at the Welcome Hotel nearly six years ago and loved it. To our astonishment we had received a New Year card each subsequent year – and we’d vowed to come here again if we could. Our visit this June was just as good. The hotel’s location, on the waterfront right opposite the small port where tenders disembark... More

This really is the perfect hotel. Lovely rooms, fantastic location, gorgeous breakfast & superb staff. We cannot recommend this hotel more highly! Special thanks to Oliver who was so very kind in helping us with advice regarding our drive to Portofino. We can't wait for our next visit!

The hotel could not be in a better location and the views from the balconies are post cards. The hotel is very clean and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. They are very environmentally friendly. We stayed in one of their smaller rooms but were on the 5th floor. Although the room was small it was well appointed and... More
