“Nice place, but don't expect too much”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Good point:
Room was very clean, plenty of space. Bed was wide enough for two people. Also I loved the selection of room interior.
Bath room was also very clean. Nice amenity. What I liked the most was a window in bathroom.
The hotel staff was very kind and friendly.
Breakfast is optional, menu was traditional French breakfast. Each item (bread, butter, jam, and yogurt) was delicious, so you can feel that they are carefully selected.

Bad point:
Air conditioner didn't work, so I had to keep the window open, so sometime bug came inside the room.
(Seeing other comments in this web site, it seems that air control is common with other room on same floor. Though, If I have to ask other coustomers to get a permission to turn on the air conditioner, I feel it is too troublesome.)
Hotel staff is not always stand-by at the front desk, so I didn't have a chance to ask about the air conditioner problem.
This might be not a problem for some people, but there is no bath tub.

I would recommend this hotel. Very peaceful location in Nice and you can walk along the promenade to the old town or easily catch one of the frequent buses. Also easy to get to and from the airport. Lovely spacious, bright and clean bedrooms and bathrooms. Nicolas, the manager, was really friendly and helpful too. Many thanks Nicolas for a fantastic stay. PS: we enjoyed breakfast outside in the garden too.

My wife and I recently stayed 2 nights in this beautiful little hotel that is run by the fantastic Nicholas. He is so welcoming and makes you feel right at home. Breakfasts are a real treat in the small garden chatting with the other guest. The hotel is located just outside central Nice in a quiet neighborhood which ensures a peaceful night sleep. Our room was enormous, as was the bathroom and at days end we enjoyed the little balcony with table and chairs. I highly recommend Hotel Villas Les Cygnes and would go back to Nice just to stay there.

This hotel/B&B is up in the region called Les Baumettes, a traditional, Somerset Maugham époque area of délaissé luxury, now a little rundown or vétuste. It is within 50 metres of the Musée des Beaux Arts in a quiet cul de sac and within 5 minutes downhill walk of the Promenade des Anglais.
A perfect position to explore Nice. The villa is run by Nicolas, a welcoming, attentive and helpful host - willing to give help, advice and directions mainly in French, but if you insist, his English is "pas mal". The breakfast is a traditional panier of fresh bread, croissants, pains au chocolat, cream cheese, yoghourt, orange juice, coffee or tea or chocolate. A great start to the day. This is served in the quiet garden amid the orange and clementine trees, agapanthus and Mediterranean palms, only interrupted by bird calls from the seagulls and blackbirds. Room 5 was large, light and spacious, with a very comfortable bed, silent and effective air conditioning - a must for the summer months in Nice and satisfactory cupboard space for a short stay. The TV (only rubbish French channels) was a waste of time, but hey who comes to Nice to watch TV!? There is a little reserved (free) parking in front of the hotel on yellow hash lines, but this is not immediately obvious. The security of the hotel is good, with codes provided for the front gate and main door. Free wi-if in the room. Altogether a lovely experience and worth the €150 per night (breakfast another €10 p.p.).
We wish Nicolas all the very best and hope this review encourages even more visitors to his delightful sanctuary of peace above Nice.

Room Tip: Although there are only 6 (?) rooms, there are rooms to suit all tastes. Room 5 (our room) was lovel...

My wife and I stayed in Nice for four nights and just loved the city. We booked into Villa Les Cygnes because of the ratings from Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Though we had tried some other options first,theset were booked out due the Iron Man being held in the same weekend. In my view this is not a hotel, it is a B&B, that offers a delightful relaxing experience, with a spacious well appointed bedroom that had an adjoining sunroom that is ideal to relax in at the end of a busy day exploring.The bathroom is large and well appointed and everything is spotless. I was surprised that the only TV channels were in French. The location is in a nice residential area, but it is a distance from the old town and a little bit of a walk up a relatively steep hill. Though this probably helped with the waistline.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with a resonable amount of luggage it may pay to get the first level rooms, ot...

Nicolas is a perfectly charming and welcoming host who made my entry to bustling Nice a special one. The hotel is lovely, the room is perfect, and you'll love the area it's in if you like staying in a lovely residential area just enough off the main drag to help you breathe calmly when it matters. He was helpful with suggestions about how to get around on the bus, and offered a bottle of ice cold water as soon as I arrived after the walk from the bus station. He also gave me a tour of the small garden, taking the time to describe what I was looking at when it wasn't as evident as a tangerine tree. Talk about a soft landing! The visual appeal of walking into my all-white room with tasteful decor and huge bathroom was pure delight, and I could not have found a more comfortable bed. Thanks for a great stay, Nicholas, from Louise Valerie!

Room Tip: I lucked out with Room 6 and highly recommend it. I didn't see the others.

Everything is perfect. the location, the building, the friendliness off the staff, the breakfast, the garden.

The villa is very nicely renovated. It has the charm of the old and the convenience of the new.

We had breakfast in the garden. Slept really well, because there is absolutely no noise, despite the fact that is is only a few minutes' walk to the Boulevard des Anglais.

One cannot ask for more.
