We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and somehow we began referring to it like "home" from the second day of our vacation. La regence/chez Betty is a cozy and welcoming place. The hosts are warm and caring and our room had quite a cute decor. We had a balcony overlooking few streets of villefranche, a park, and the... More

I stayed one night in this hotel. The hotel is above one PUB. I stayed in the first floor but there was no noise, what was great. The room is simple but very functional. There is no TV or frigobar. The bed is very comfortable, and the bathroom very clean. The hotel is less than 5 minutes walking to the... More

My wife and I spent three nights in the hotel in late November 2013, and were delighted with our stay. Firstly, owner Thierry and his grandmother, and all their patrons, gave a really warm welcome. Second, the room was clean, neat and functional - everything we needed. And finally, for a quick breakfast or evening drink the downstairs cafe is... More

We stayed here in early October. We found this hotel on tripadvisor and when our taxi pulled up, we were not sure we had made the right decision. It was on a busy corner, appeared older than we thought and looked like a bar. However, we were pleasantly surprised when we got to our room. It had been recently remodeled... More

My girlfriend and I spent four nights at this hotel. We found the prices were reasonable and the room clean, comfortable and stylish. Located on a main thoroughfare in the newer part of town, the hotel was convenient to shops, a farmer's market, and major bus lines to Nice and Monaco. The fact that the hotel sits on top of... More

We spent 5 nights Chez Betty in October and can honestly say we loved this place. From the quirky way in which you check in at the cafe - bar and enter the hotel from a door at the back of the room, to the bright, freshly decorated bedroom with a window you could stand at for ages. Each morning... More

We spent 4 nights at La Regence and had a brilliant few days. The hotel is perfectly located to walk around the whole of Villefranche and it sits on the main bus route to Nice and Monaco. Thierry and his team were extremely welcoming and made the stay all the more enjoyable. The rooms had been beautifully redecorated. A great... More

As a student at Institut de francais, I knew La Regence well as a meeting place and bar with a very friendly hostess, Betty. For my last night in Villefranche-sur-mer, I was simply looking for a homelike and friendly place but was not expecting such a charming and up-to-date room with all the conveniences. The chamber was simple and lovely,... More

We enjoyed staying at La Regence this summer for three nights, its a good location as near the bus stops and only a short walk through the old town to the beach and rail station. Our room was beautifully and freshly decorated with a gorgeous contemporary ensuite shower room. Betty is a very warm and welcoming hostess and I would... More
