“A great hotel for a small budget trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Patricia. For a smaller budget, it's ideal. It's a short 10-15 minute walk to the beach, is homely and welcoming. The owners are very hospitable and full of local knowledge and passion. Worth the stay!

After a busy week in Paris, we so enjoyed the slower pace and hospitality we found in the South. Our hosts, Joelle and Franck,were very welcoming and helpful. Our room, which was really a suite, had views of the garden and the Mediterranean. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. The trains were not an issue, and the walk to Villefranche was short and scenic. Using the buses and trains, we found that we could easily do without a rental car. Franck and Joelle gave excellent directions and suggestions for day trips and dining. Our stay with them was the high point of our trip. We definitely plan to return!

Room Tip: The junior suite is only slightly higher than other rooms and well worth the price.

We had a wonderful 8 day stay in this absolutely great value for money hotel. It is situated in a very convenient location. The proprietors, Franck and Joelle, are so helpful and friendly, and the breakfasts were good. We stayed end of March beginning of April and we would not hesitate to return to the same hotel on another visit to the region. Although we hired a car there is a regular bus and rail transport to the hotel. We stayed in the Junior Suite which for us was perfect. It did not have a balcony but did have a good view over the Mediterranean. Altogether a perfect holiday. Our French friend living in Nice recommended the hotel to friends who stayed there soon after us and they were also delighted.

Room Tip: We found the Junior Suite excellent and really good value for money. If a balcony is essential then...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this bed-and-breakfast type hotel. The rooms were on a second floor with several staircases between the entrance and the room. Our room was rather small but it made up for its size by a large window with a view of the Mediterranean sea. We had an ensuite bathroom with a shower but we did see a separate shower room on the second floor so it seems that some rooms do not have an ensuite bathroom. We had breakfast (not included in the price of the night but was around 6 Euros per person and well worth it. The service was great and everyone was friendly and helpful. The price of the double room was reasonable (72 Euros). The hotel is near a railway so if you sleep softly, you may hear the train during the day. A few trains did run during the night.

Getting to the hotel is somewhat more difficult than normal. There is a tiny one-way driveway off the main road which leads to several places. There is adequate signage for this hotel, however, and there is parking right next to the house.

Note that, according to posted signs that we drove by, actually is located outside the city of Villefranche-sur-Mer but it is very close - within walking distance. It sits on the side of the bay opposite Villefranche-sur-Mer. The walk to the old city is about 15 minutes. The hotel owner suggested a restaurant at the old city (Garcon) which was delicious (we ordered seafood platters).

The hotel features a large but rather apathetic and very friendly dog and a cat. This may be an issue for some people who are allergic. There was wifi but it was rather poor in the room and we had to stand close to the window to get a signal. Four out of five because of the size of the room and poor wifi. Overall, a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: There is one room with a balcony with a view of the Mediterranean. In the summer, this may be a bet...

Just coming off 10 days staying at the hotel Patricia in beautiful villefranche. A perfect place to stay. Great place, and great price in what is typically a very expensive town in the French Riviera. Frank and Joelle (proprietors) are extremely accommodating and friendly and made our stay change from 4 days to 10 days. Rooms are clean and cleaned daily and the hotel prides itself on sustainably. The hotel is steps from the beach and a lovely 10 minute walk from town. Enjoy!

We spent a weekend a Hotel Patricia.The hotel is a short walk from the center of Villefranche and Cap Ferrat. Franck and Joelle are incredibly sweet. They gave us recommendations of what to do and where to eat and even drove us to the train station when we were leaving. Very easy to get to from the airport, train and bus stations. Rooms are small but we had a beautiful balcony overlooking the sea so it was not a problem. We would definitely stay here again!

Hotel Patricia is a lovely small hotel located in the west of the neighbouring bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer (approximately 15 minutes from Nice). It can easily be reached by bus and due to its location nearby attactions (Nice, Villa Kerylos, Villa Ephrussi, Eze,...) are within easy reach and the sea is only a few minutes away.
The owners Frank and Joelle are very kind and helpful. The rooms are quite small, but very clean and comfortable - just perfect for a short sightseeing trip to Nice and the surrounding area. The nearby train might be a bit uncomfortable for sensitive ears, however, given the large number of pros and the great price-performance-ratio, this definitely plays a lesser role.

Fazit: Thank you very much for the lovely stay!
