“very good value for money, great hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay at La Regence, It's a small,cozy, family-run hotel, ideally situated between Nice and Monaco. Just outside the hotel, you can catch the bus to Monaco and Nice. It's only a short walk to the Port and the beach. Rooms are basic but very clean and the hosts are lovely & very helpful. Great value for money in that quite expensive area.

A wonderful little hotel with very clean and bright rooms. The location can't be beat, very close to Nice and other little towns towards Monaco. Within short walking distance to the Old Port of Villefranche and the beach. The price is excellent for the area. Thierry and his staff were extremely helpful and friendly, from the reservation to the departure and we would definately return here in the future.

This is a great, small hotel located close to the water and old town Nice. Very friendly staff who enjoy making your stay a great one and full of knowledge of the surrounding area. We stayed in many small hotels like in this "category" during our time in Europe and this is one of the best! Rooms are very aesthetically pleasing with modern, sleek design and decor.

La Regence was without doubt the best value accommodation in Villefrance-sur-Mer. It is located in a very accessible part of this beautiful town. I was there is November so it was not very hot, thus a/c was not a problem. As it was a quiet part of the year, I was able to get a room without even booking. If you're the kind of person who likes to spend a lot of time at your hotel, then this might not be the place you are looking for - but it is a great base for exploring a beautiful part of the country - get out and see it!

Great location, comfortable room with a nice view for a very good price.

Only two small complaints: we got there a little late after having one of those days of traveling where nothing goes quite as planned, and basically got yelled at by the woman who greeted us for not calling to let her know we would be later than 6pm. She had already promised the room to another couple who had walked in a little while before us, but she gave us the room we had reserved anyway and was friendly enough the next day. Anyway, we should have called, but I don't think her behaviour was very customer-oriented. Lesson: if you will be arriving after 6pm DEFINITELY call. :)

The other thing is that the room was a little noisy because it's on somewhat of a busy street, which wasn't a problem for us, but if you're a light sleeper I would recommend bringing earplugs.

However, overall I highly recommend this hotel if you're looking for a deal and Villefranche as a vacation spot in general.

Located smack in center of town right on the only road through town. Can be quite noisy, and rooms not air-conditioned(would be better in winter when you could shut the windows. Host is great, very friendy and helpful, speaks English pretty well. His mother founded the place 40 years ago and still works there. She too will help solve traveler's problems. Pretty good value for this resort village, but you won't linger in the room.

I stayed at La Regence 4 nights at the end of March. I flew into Nice took the 98 bus from the airport to a stop in Nice to connect with the 100 bus and arrived in Villefranche exhausted from flying from the US. Thierry immediated showed me to a clean, quiet room and didn't even request any payment. The bed was comfortable and I always had lots of hot water for a shower. Breakfast in the bar is simple and a fine way to start the day. If you are looking for luxury this is NOT the place for you. But, if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, affordable and very friendly place to stay then try it.
