My partner and I stayed two nights in one of Villa La Tour's small, cheaper rooms, which do not have views of the old city. I had very low expectations and had mainly booked the room based on its good price and location. However, we were very pleasantly surprised.
Although the window did not open and the room was only about 8 feet by 12 feet (including a sink, shower, toilet, double bed and armoir), it was ingeniously laid-out and well decorated. It was actually one of my favourite places we stayed during the entire trip (which included some hotel rooms of 150 euros in Portofino and St. Tropez) because it was so cute and ingenious. The toilet is actually inside the shower stall, which works quite well, except you have to remember to put the toilet paper outside before turning on the shower.
The staff was also very friendly and helpful. They provided directions, offered to search and print out maps and train schedules, and were happy to consult on our restaurant selections. Those who have travelled in France will know that this level of customer service is rare!
Overall, we had an excellent experience in one of the few affordable yet clean and comfortable rooms in Nice's old city. Highly recommended.
