“Quaint French Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Good position in" old town" Nice. Staff friendly, continental breakfast plentiful. The décor rather "tired" in places and the room very small. No parking available and expensive in public car park opposite Hotel. Satisfactory for a short stay, if disabled, there is no lift !! Generally clean ie; linen and" on suite" facility. Renovation in progress on our visit but not a problem, hopefully when alterations complete, negative comments will cease.

A nice little hotel ideal for a couple of nights. Lovely staff and a complementary drink on arrival. The room was clean but small with small amount of hanging space. No lift, so a large heavy case would be difficult to drag up the steep stairs. I would assume the 100 euros a night price was because of the good area, as breakfast is not included in the price. Not really good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony as the view is lovely.

This hotel had the best photos I have ever seen, but when we got to the hotel it was a dump! I travel a lot. This was not a place to stay especially at 250 per night! The mold in the bathroom was everywhere from the shower to the floor tile. My daughter got a bloody nose from the amount of mold. The carpet on the floor was stained everywhere and it was patched together. Do not stay here please.

Room Tip: We had 2 rooms and they were both full of mold.

old city of nice is magical. and hotel villa la tour is the heart of it .
second visit in Nice and we could hardly get a room at the small boutiqe hotel - vila la tour.
its the combination of a best location with the design and the hospitality.
do not hesitate and book a room.
the hotel is few meters from the beutifull musee of modern art, 15 minutes walk from the beutiful beaches of Nice and at the heart of the old city.
do not miss a visit at the wine shop qbar on front of the hotel.

Room Tip: choose the luxory room.

The hotel is on a small side street , right in the centre of the city of Nice. The building is old , but very tastefully decorated, everything is spotlessly clean, and the proprietors are more than charming.
Very close to the hotel is the old city centre of Nice, with charming winding streets with numerous restaurants.
I stayed near the top floor, with a wonderful view across the old rooftops towards church towers and flowers. there is q smoking terrace on the very top floor

Room Tip: all the rooms are great

Great localization. Good for congresses, good for visiting, good for party.

But rooms are very small and the hotel ls old. A good renovation is needed
Don t forget to ask for your free glass of wine when you arrive
