We stayed here in May 2013, but our late review is no reflection on how lovely this hotel is, just on our own procrastination! The hotel is charming and well situated close the the beach and restaurants. The owner is very friendly and speaks English, French, German and maybe other languages too! She and the staff were very helpful, offering to make reservations and help make our stay more enjoyable. We stayed in a "superior" room on the top floor, and also saw one on the 2nd floor (premiere etage). The 2nd floor room was a bit small, so I would suggest opting for a "superior" room for those of us Americans who are used to larger rooms than your average French hotel rooms! The room was sweet with a cute little "Juliet" balcony overlooking the garden and a spacious and newly renovated bathroom. Breakfast was tasty and pleasant sitting in the dining room or garden. A hint - call directly to reserve your room and you may be able to get possible discounts. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again if we return to Nice.

Dear Mrs. Donna B.,
Thank you for your compliments. We specially appreciated the understanding of the size of the rooms, as the Hotel Villa Rivoli is a real Belle Époque building of 1890, we have to respect the architecture. Its absolutely correct that, for clients who are booking directly we can choose the " right room for the right client" and yes, we as well try to give special conditions for our clients who has been here already or are taking the time in contacting us directly. We would be very happy welcoming you again, as you know here in Nice it's always something going on : by the way, 3 weeks ago the " Promenade de Paillon" = the nicois central Park... is opened and it looks fantastic because of the new perspective in between the new and the old town. With very best regards of Nice... and thank you again, Barbara Kimmig.

We could not have been more pleased with our time at Hotel Villa Rivoli. It is a very lovely and
charming place, centrally located in a beautiful section of Nice. Katje was so accommodating and helpful. She made a dinner reservation for us at a wonderful, tiny restaurant that we would not have known about without watching the hotel's video.
We had a glorious time and would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: I loved our room, the walls were covered with a delightful gray toile patterned fabric.

Hotel was in very good location. 3 minutes to the beach. Breakfast was a good variety and efficiently run. The have parasols and mats for sunbathing. This is a town house property with winding stairs, no lifts. They help you with your luggage but you still have to walk up and down so not great if you have mobility problems. Rooms are on the small side but maybe not unsure as it is a very central location. Receptionists speak good English. Do try Restaurant 11'eme Art, 11 Rue Meyerbeer. The set lunch menu is very good value. No shower cap in the room - you will need to bring your own.

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.
