Certificate of Excellence
The Welcome Hotel sits like a yacht moored in the charming fishing village of Villefranche-Sur-Mer, surrounded by dappled Mediterranean blues. Its exceptional setting has always attracted travellers, artists and poets. Built as a convent in the 17th century, it was converted into a hotel 200 years ago. Of course, the facilities and comfort of a modern 4-star hotel are provided: 24/7 reception, concierge service, bar, sauna, free wi-fi access and much more... All of the rooms have breath-taking views from their balcony, overlooking the picturesque bay and guests are steps away from the beach, restaurants and shopping. The Welcome Hotel benefits from being in a tranquility of the Medieval old town, yet is right in the heart of the dynamic Côte d'Azur, between Nice and Monaco.

This is our 3rd visit because we like it so much. Would recommend higher floors for the view. The reception staff are faultless and the hotel retains its staff. NOTHING is too much trouble. Great location for the station which is an excellent way to get around. May to October wou

Great service and location - staff was helpful, breakfast wonderful and great ambiance. Our room could use an update - but our friends's room was fantastic! I would recommend this hotel to everyone interested in a quieter locale than Nice or Monaco - but only a quick train ride

Wondering if anyone can help me?? I’m going to nice for first time next week. I’ve loved the Welcome hotel and would love to stay there but we are only in nice for two days? I’m really wanting to explore old town in nice? Is it easy to get to nice old town from here? Or is it better to stay in old town? Any recommendations for old town accommodation? Also we don’t arrive until 9.30 Monday night what’s the best way to get to welcome hotel?
Great location, train is only 2 mins away and takes you straight into Nice in a few mins...
