Since we were not planning on being at the hotel much we decided to take a garden-view room. The room was clean; bed comfortable; loved the towel warmer; and the view was just fine...it overlooked a garden, houses up the hill and on top of the hill a fort/castle(?). We did not eat the breakfast so we cannot comment on... More

This is the best price/quality we found in a four week trip through France & Italy. Right on the water facing across the beautiful harbor to the sea. Top floor room is worth the hike (no elevators). Large, light-filled tastefully decorated room with roomy terrace. Excellent breakfast on the ground floor terrace outside.

Hotel de la Darse and villefranche was absolutely perfect for a 5 day escape and to celebrate a birthday. Exceptionally clean, staff very friendly, reasonably priced and in a beautiful location. Opposite the small harbour -five minutes walk along the sea front path to the charming old town and cosmopolitan sea front restaurants and bars. The hotel doesn't have a... More

Hotel de la Darse cannot be beat for location! It's situated on Villefranche harbor right across from the marina. Views from our top floor harbor facing room (photo attached) were spectacular and lifetime memories. The room had a comfortable bed and large (by European standards) bathroom. Hotel offers option of an extra room charge for breakfast or to not have... More

Clean & comfortable in a quiet location. Even feather pillows! Villefranche is charming with lots of bars & restaurants so much nicer than the large resorts. Be warned though there is no lift. It a big staircase to the third floor. Ideal for us for one night.

The bathroom is space with a proper bathtub that is nicely decorated with large dark tiles. Every rooms has a balcony with two chairs and a table. The curtains are a bit thin so the street... More

A group of seven people stayed in four rooms for two nights. Two had water view rooms with balconies. The other two rooms were garden views. The water views were wonderful on sunny days. I would recommend those rooms. All of the rooms were neat and clean. The wifi worked well. Breakfast was good with a good selection. We ate... More

We stayed in the double room with the garden view, which was lovely. If staying any longer then one night we would have paid the extra for a sea view. Bed was very comfy and the room was spotlessly clean. There was free on street parking outside, although this would be a lot busier in summer. Very nice walk along... More
