My wife and I stayed at Hotel Villa Victoria for 5 nights. The staff were friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a Garden View room which included a large bath tub. Rooms were standard European size, small compared to US standards but clean. Interior could use a slight refresh but we aren't there to stay in the room for an extended period. Beds were adequate but nothing special. TV had the standard selection of English speaking news stations (BBC World News, CNBC, Bloomberg, CCTV). Because we had the Garden View, we found the hotel to be very quiet, even with the windows open. You can walk to Rue Massena, a street with lots of restaurants and shopping, in 5 minutes. It takes about 15-20 to get to the Old Town. One of the main reasons we chose the hotel was its proximity to the train station, however, we only used it once while we were there. The bus system in Nice is great for going to places like Eze and Monaco because it only cost 1 euro (we walked to Garibaldi Square to catch the bus to both-about a 15 minute walk). I would suggest taking the train if you are going to Cannes or Antibes. There is also a bus stop at Rue de Congres and Promenade des Anglais. You can catch this bus stop to go to/from the airport which is much cheaper than a cab (we couldn't find a direct train to/from the airport). We felt pretty safe walking at night back to the hotel although some of the streets were pretty empty. The neighborhood seemed to be a nice area.
We found the breakfast to be what you expect in Europe (which far exceeds US continental breakfasts) but very good selection of fruit, cheeses, meats, toast/croissants, yogurt, juice, cereal and a coffee/expresso machine. We found it very filling and a great way to start the day.
Internet acces was free and signal was OK. We kept having to sign in every time we left or didn't use it for a while which got frustrating. There is a computer but no printer available in the common area to print boarding passes or tickets but the staff were really nice and let us use theirs.
Overall, we were happy with our stay and would definitely recommend.
