This is a super good value hotel. My room was spacious and nicely decorated - though a little sparse eg no pictures and some of the furniture was a little tired. The en suite was compact but new and fresh and both rooms were scrupulously clean. I would definitely recommend a sea view room with a balcony as this was... More

Stayed in two different rooms, a triple on the first floor and a double on the third floor, Both rooms were clean and had various advantages and disadvantages. However, you really could not beat the view from the third floor balcony. A quiet part of the town, a bit of a walk to everything, but not too much and very... More

Villefranche Sur Mer is the quieter alternative to Nice. We loved it!! The hotel is a bit of a walk from the train station, but that walk puts you just outside the congestion of the central tourist area. The room was updated and spacious. The price was reasonable. The staff was very friendly. And the breakfast was great, especially taking... More

I was staying here for about 10 nights and I had a small room with garden view. For the 10 days it was a nice stay and the breakfast was consistent. A typical french breakfast with sweets, croissants, marmelade and even heary things like a boiled egg and one kind of cheese. Juices and fruit salad are also served. Coffee... More

Fabulous place to stay, relax and enjoy all Villefranche-sur-mer has to offer. We spent five nights here after a hiking trip. We were planning to base ourselves in Nice - instead accepting a friend's advice that Villefranche is a better base. What excellent advice! Had a three person room at the top of the stairs on level 2 - room... More

This hotel is located in the quieter port of Villefranche sur Mer. Just a 10-minute walk from the train and other port (where the restaurants are located). I had a triple room which was very large with a nice balcony facing the water. There is a nice patio area for breakfast or just relaxing. The woman who runs the hotel... More

We stayed for a week at the end of April. This hotel is unpretentious, very clean, very pleasant, very welcoming. Our room had a balcony avec vue mer, looking out across the marina toward the rade de Villefranche. Altogether lovely for a pre-dinner glass of rose. Our hosts were lovely and helpful. Furnishings in the room were new-looking, not opulent,... More

We have been Villefranche sur Mer on several occasions but this was our first time on the Darse side. We stayed in Hotel Darse for 4 nights, the room was perfect for our needs, clean and quite spacious. We did not have breakfast so can not comment. The main town is only a 10 minute walk away along the shore.... More

Beautiful & Relaxing Vacation In need of a TLC time, have been to Villefranche many times but only recently found Hotel de la Darse. The staff were so accommodating for any of my questions, and always helpful. Directions, recommendations, taxi to airport, etc. The area is super relaxing with many dining options. Only wanting one more meal after their bountiful... More

Since we were not planning on being at the hotel much we decided to take a garden-view room. The room was clean; bed comfortable; loved the towel warmer; and the view was just fine...it overlooked a garden, houses up the hill and on top of the hill a fort/castle(?). We did not eat the breakfast so we cannot comment on... More
