“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Nice hotel with clean rooms, good sized bathroom and nicely decorated. The location is really good, just outside the old town of Villefranche and very close to the bus stop to both Nice and Monaco. The service was great and Thierry was very helpful throughout our stay, making some phone calls for us when a French speaker was required (thanks Thierry). Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street can be loud, rooms on the side may be quieter.

The rooms in this hotel are recently refurbished, especially our bathroom looked very good and was comfortable. The hotel has a nice village atmosphere to it. The staff didn't speak much English but were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel also has a nice cafe on the ground floor where you can get breakfast in the morning. It is located along the road to Monaco which was kind of noisy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road.

We stayed here for two nights after one week in Nice. When we saw the location we thought we had made a mistake. The twin beds room on the top floor was small but beautiful with a lovely view of the sea and cruise ships. Thierry and Betty were wonderful hosts and we wish we could have stayed longer. With the bus stop to Nice, Monaco, Eze and St. Jean Cap Ferrat a few feet away the location turned out to be perfect.

Super nice people, easy going, good size clean rooms, & an easy walk to everything in VF. Great lounge/bar in the front too, parking really close if need be, ATMs and a cute little store/market just steps away. (FYI the double rooms have the best views).

After arriving at Villefranche sur Mer late one night and lugging our heavy bags up hundreds of stairs from the railway station and feeling stressed and tired, we arrived at Chez Betty to be greeted by the delightful Betty. We immediately felt at home and relaxed. Chez Betty is well located, comfortable, clean and run by a gorgeous family. I would highly recommend it. We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights there.

My hotel room and en suite were both freshly decorated and very pleasant, with an excellent air conditioning unit which kept the room nice and cool.
Betty, Thierry and the whole family team were warm and welcoming. It was always lovely to start the day with a little chat with them.
The bar noise was unobtrusive - even during a French World Cup match. The noise from the street could be a little more disruptive. I imagine the rooms at the back are better for that.
I would highly recommend staying here.

La Regence is a nice family run small hotel. Everyone is very happy and inviting. It has a great feel and character to the place. We throughly enjoyed our stay. It feels more like a locals place than a hotel.
