“Short Break in Nice”
Reviewed 6 October 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Villa Rivoli, Nice in early September for 4 nights. The Hotel has a good location for sightseeing in Nice and for access to public transport to visit the surrounding area. Perhaps I was expecting more from the reviews I had previously read on Trip advisor but I was somewhat disappointed when we were shown to our room. We had selected a superior double room. Our room was situated on the ground floor and had a bedroom and separate bathroom. Our room looked out onto the street but we did not have any problem with noise. The room was clean but the decor not particularly to my taste. The bed was not the most comfortable and also quite short (my husband who is 5'10 found his feet hanging out the bottom). We had breakfast in the Hotel on the first morning but thereafter ate breakfast at a cafe on the Promenade at a reasonable price. Two restuarants worth mentioning where we enjoyed good French Cuisine are Chez Juliette and Le Resto on Rue Rossetti in Nice Old Town.

My husband and I just traveled to Paris and Nice for our honeymoon and stayed here for our 3 nights in Nice. It's a lovely boutique style hotel. It's and older building with much charm inside and out.
The location is great. 3 blocks from the water and promenade and only about a 10 minute walk from the train. The staff is super friendly and very accommodating, allowing us to chill champagne bottles in the little breakfast area fridge etc...
We loved every minute of it.

Room Tip: "Superior" (ours was a corner) is the way to go.

Although bleery from an 8 hour time zone difference we were very pleased with Villa Rivoli. In particular was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. We chose the hotel for its location which turned out to be just as we hoped - near enough to everything. All other issues of cleanliness, breakfast and room reflected care and effort - a most pleasant stay.

This hotel was very nice to stay at. We had one of the lower grade rooms which was comfortable and had obviously been recently renovated. The wallpaper left a bit to be desired but the bed was very comfortable, there was a flat screen TV (which kept switching itself off however!) and some shelving. The bathroom was modern with nice hot water and good water pressure. The shower was however, compact to say the least. It was impossible to have a shower without getting the shower curtain stuck to you or knocking the soap on the floor.

The only real complaint I have about the room is that there was no safe. I feel this is a must in a modern hotel.

Free wifi was brilliant and reliable. Although we didn't use it, the dining room and seated area in the garden looked very appealing.

I would recommend this hotel to other travellers, particularly if you can't afford some of the other hotels in Nice. The location is great and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The basic rooms are compact with little more than a bed, some bedside tables, a flat screen TV and s...

Our first time in France and this hotel was excellent. Rooms are small, but very clean and the bathrooms are quite tiny but have all amenities and they are spotless! Very romantic feel with the french doors, lovely drapes and wall treatments. We stayed in two different rooms due to a booking mix up and they were very accommodating. Even moved all our stuff to the new room while we were out sightseeing. You can feel the old world elegance here. Excellent location for walking to all the sights. Only negative was finding it in the first place! Came by train and although it looked simple enough to find, we had quite a meandering walk to get there. People about 5 blocks away didn't know the hotel (odd). Very kind local man offered to help us find it and stayed with us until we had solid directions - very sweet French man and we only spoke in the international language of hand gestures. (Helpful Tip): The Hotel everyone seems to know is the "El Neggressco", right on the Promenade. Ask for this hotel then walk directly from the Promenade up a couple blocks and voila!

Very charming hotel, centrally located in Nice with pleasant staff. Had a "superior" double room with french balconies, a lot of character, well working AC, free Wifi and, not least, an excellent bed. Room towards the street but calm at night. Good breakfast buffet. Would definitely return.

I stayed here with my mother during July and absolutely loved this hotel!
The location, the rooms, the cleanliness, the staff and the breakfast were all fantastic!!

The staff were especially helpful and answered all of out questions.

The rooms are very clean and have a window which we left open at night as we liked the fresh air. The bathrooms were also very clean and spacious.

I highly recommend this hotel!
