We really had a most enjoyable experience. we stayed in june where the weather was excellent.our daughter and her family also stayed and similarly enjoyed the hospitality.

Hotel Villa Rivoli is a lovely small B&B style hotel in a quiet street within easy reach (five/ten mins walk) of the prommenade, restaurants and old town. We stayed in room 14, small but perfectly adquate double room with comfortable bed, clean linen, good shower, tea/coffee making facilities, tv and internet. Just like staying in someone's family home. Around the corner you can find many good restaurants and access to the front door late at night is via a key code which is given on arrival. Breakfast was buffet style, may need to get there earlier to get the best service, but was fine. All in all a good hotel in a convenient location, would stay there again.

This is a great hotel. It is well located for the promenade, the beach, old town, market, train station and various buses. The hotel is small but the owner has a big heart and it is run efficiently and with great warmth by her and her staff. Katya, on the reception desk, was the star of the show for us, booking restaurants and giving directions with great patience. Everyone smiles and seem happy at their work making a very pleasant atmosphere. We appreciated also the free wifi which worked perfectly.

A beautiful staircase curves through the belle epoque building. The breakfast, taken indoors in the room which converts to a lounge in the evening (complete with piano!), or in the pretty garden, is standard hotel fair with excellent breads, croissants, fruit, eggs etc.

Our only regret was that we did not reserve a superior room as our standard one was a little small. However, it had a little balcony which enabled us to watch the world go by, and it was well appointed with everything we needed - and the bed was wonderful. We would have upgraded but sadly for us the hotel was fully booked.

We very much liked this hotel. Thanks again Katya!

Room Tip: Select a superior room if you like space around you.

The hotel is extremely well managed, the owner and the entire staff are dedicated to their guests with outstanding skills. The hotel is very well located and maintained. I had two days in heaven in September. I had a room overlooking a delightful garden, the buffet-breakfast has plenty of choices, well in a nutshell, I miss the Villa Rivoli!

I highly recommend a stay at Villa Rivoli if you visit Nice, it is a must and I will return without any doubt.

We spent 7 days at this hotel and can't wait to come back. We had 2 rooms on the reception floor, which was exteremly comfortable for our needs. Isolated by a corridor from the reception area.
The stuff, each and every one of them was very kind, professional and helpful. They help us with booking daily trips, taxi, restaurants etc.
There is a close-by bus to the city center, the beach is like 100 m away, supermarket Casino, boulangerie also a few minutes away.
We felt at home at this hotel and surely will return.

Room Tip: reception floor is good for disabled peple.

We stayed here last year in september and returned for three nights again this year. This hotel is in such a good position. Just two blocks back from the beach , near restarants and shops and in a lovely area , which is also only a 15 min walk from the old town. The staff were all very helpful, and advised us on which bus to get when we travelled around . We loved our room and booked it agisn this year, although the bathroom is small, it has all you need and is very clean, we were given clean towels every day. Our room had a little balcony which looked over the garden. The breafast in the garden every morning was a treat with plenty of choice. It is also great to have tea and coffe making faciilities in the room and a fridge. The whole hotel is decorated very tastefully .The staff were always helful and coutious and could not do enough to help. We plan to return again next year, for a longer stay if possible .

Room Tip: The latger rooms are worth paying for.

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is an adorable boutique hotel wonderfully decorated with attention to detail. We booked early and requested a specific room, which we got and loved--#6. It had a little balcony and was very comfortable with a fridge and air conditioning. Room service exceeded our expectations and the staff was awesome... Very accommodating and friendly. The beach was only 2 blocks away which we took advantage of.
