Certificate of Excellence


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.

My wife and I stayed at the Welcome years ago, and our experience was very good, so we returned with my brother and his wife this past October. The hotel is even better now. They have made major renovations in the rooms and have been upgraded to a 4 star hotel. The newly renovated rooms and hallways are beautiful and the bathrooms have every convenience, and look brand new. The hotel location could not be better. It looks out on the harbor at Villefranche Sur Mer, which is directly across the street. Many rooms in the hotel have spectacular views of the harbor. The staff, especially the front desk manager Julien Balladur, are extremely friendly and helpful. Julien helped us with dinner recommendations and reservations, helped with parking our rental car, and you feel he wants to make you feel at home in his hotel. Hotel Welcome should be proud to call him one of their employees, he is a credit to your organization. We have travelled extensively throughout Europe for many years, and Julien stands out. The rest of the staff stood out as well, from the bar tender in the evening, to the breakfast staff. When we return to France and Villefranche Sur Mer, we will stay at The Welcome Hotel, and we are recommending the hotel to all our traveling friends

I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff were so welcoming and helpful and the room was gorgeous and had an amazing view. I was in a Superior room and I do not know what the other types of rooms are like. The breakfast buffet was excellent and is eaten in a room with a lovely view of the harbor.

Cute place, nice people, but could use a little more updating. My experience was pretty good but ONLY because we changed rooms. If we had not it would have been very bad. We first got room 53 on the 5th floor. Great views but that’s it. It was very dark, small and dated. Not what’s on the site!! Had an old smell and the AC barely worked. We got switched to 26 which was one of the more updated rooms. It was totally acceptable and was more like what was shown on the site. But of course we were on the second floor so not as nice views and a little more noise from the street.
