Very good value and what you would expect for the money. Very clean hotel and we booked a triple room which gave us a bit more room. We had a sea view which was great and also quiet. Helpful staff. A perfect base for exploring the surrounding area by bus or train.

Not the cheapest, but good value for money. The hotel needs upgrading and a little money spending on the décor. I booked a turret room and got 3 floor to ceiling windows over looking the sea from each. Beds were comfortable and the staff ( Colette and Sabastian ) were excellent. I didn't eat in as there are so many... More

Great little hotel. Very French! Helpful happy staff. Easy to get to. I had a great room with two balconies and a view of the whole bay. Very quaint a little run down but nothing to complain about. I would definitely stay here again just to have the view from the room I had

We reserved a room with a water view and could not have been happier. When we first opened the patio doors, we thought we had landed in heaven. I will always remember it.

We stayed here only one night without breakfast as I think it was better to spend 11euro for something in the market which is just around the corner than for the breakfast in the hotel. We didn't go for the beach near by the hotel, but on Cap Ferrat called Pamplona beach where you can rent sun bed and there... More

Stayed here 9/30; hotel easy walking distance to water, shops, restaurants. Nice room with balcony (rm 111); good bathroom. Hotel has 24 hr reception and a lift. Only disappointment is lack of wifi in rooms. They have an old computer in the lobby for guests but I was unable to get it to work in English. Ended up purchasing service... More

My wife and I had four nights here in late September. Last year we stayed at an hotel back towards Nice so the relative proximity to the waterfront was good. We drove and in late Sept could parking in the public car park by the tourist office at 1.10 euro per hour when we needed. The hotel appears to have... More

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for your feedback. Yes the hotel was build in 1926, but we did many reinvestment in between. This winter we just finished to refresh the last bedrooms. So I guess you had one of this. If you come back to french riviera we would be very happy to welcome you. Kind Regards More

We stayed for 10 nights, having booked in January. We are very familiar with Villefranche, this is our 5th time, but first at the Hotel Provencal. Why excellent?

We could see it but couldn't figure out how to get to it. Then we realized we had to park and walk down the street to the entrance. Not much street parking, but we found a lot next to the soccer field that we used. It's an older hotel, but our room had been refurbished. Great view from our balcony.... More

Unfortunately, I didn't have a good experience at the Hotel Provencal. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. But the quality of the room disappointed me. The room had no refrigerator, no clothes iron, and no shower curtain. Also, we had a "bay view" room, but most of the bay was obstructed by other buildings and trees. I think... More
