This hotel is very nice. It over looks the water. The hotel is a little old but very nice. It is super hard to have cars around because there is no parking. So when we arrived we had to go through the busy street. They need to have a proper entrance. Over all it is a little expensive but the... More

The room was lovely. It had an antique feel to it without feeling dated. The balcony was by far the most wonderful part of the room. Whether you had coffee in the morning or rose at night, it was a beautiful setting. I adored the flags assigned to each room, lightly blowing in the wind. The service was wonderful -... More

With my friends and my husband, we enjoy regularly going for a brunch at the welcome hotel. We have an exclusive experience as there are only a few tables on the deck and the staff is extremely friendly which is very appreciable. And indeed we have a beautiful view and are located in the old town of Villefranche! It's just... More

Hotel Welcome is a lovely hotel right on the water in Villefranche - away from the hustle and bustle of Nice. Spacious, clean and beautifully appointed with wonderful friendly and helpful staff. We loved it! A little pricey but the balcony was well worth it and the location was very convenient. Would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I have stayed in this magical and historic hotel almost every year since we first visited Villefranche-sur-Mer in 2001. Its location is charming and picturesque, right on the port with lovely views of the sea, the boats, the Citadel, and surrounding landscapes and buildings. Restaurants, shops, parks, the train station, beach, marina, and more are just a... More

Right on the water with a spectacular view of the harbor. Very close to everything and surrounded by shops and restaurants. Breakfast was good and, again, right on the water. The Welcome is a little beat up for this early in the season with noticeable dents and scuffs and a carpet stain or two. The location and excellent staff keep... More

We stayed three days (and yes - in june they require this as a minimum - a policy I think the loose money and customers with, esp. they who look for one or two days stop). The hotel is so nicely placed along the old port of Villefranche, and you can sit on the terracce and watch the fishermens arrive... More

We stayed two nights here. The location is lovely (about a 15 minute walk from the train station) (follow the signs that lead down "to the beach", then turn right and follow the bay around; you cannot miss it). We stayed on the tippy-top floor in the Boat Suite cabin. This is a two-room "suite" which we thought would be... More

Friendly, pleasant people are ready to help you. Great service. Afternoon drinks at your balcony is very relaxing. We stayed at the top floor in a cozy room you feel like you are in a boat without getting sea-sick. Only down side is bathroom smells bad because when you shower water is everywhere. If you close the door there isn't... More

Very good hotel superbly located. Wife and I stayed there early June 2016. Right on the water. Good staff. Hard to find any downside other than price, which is relatively high. Not sure what 4 stars means in France but this is a nice hotel, not a luxury hotel. You will not regret if you are debating and decide to... More
