“Very Misleading”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

This hotel had the best photos I have ever seen, but when we got to the hotel it was a dump! I travel a lot. This was not a place to stay especially at 250 per night! The mold in the bathroom was everywhere from the shower to the floor tile. My daughter got a bloody nose from the amount of mold. The carpet on the floor was stained everywhere and it was patched together. Do not stay here please.

Room Tip: We had 2 rooms and they were both full of mold.

old city of nice is magical. and hotel villa la tour is the heart of it .
second visit in Nice and we could hardly get a room at the small boutiqe hotel - vila la tour.
its the combination of a best location with the design and the hospitality.
do not hesitate and book a room.
the hotel is few meters from the beutifull musee of modern art, 15 minutes walk from the beutiful beaches of Nice and at the heart of the old city.
do not miss a visit at the wine shop qbar on front of the hotel.

Room Tip: choose the luxory room.

The hotel is on a small side street , right in the centre of the city of Nice. The building is old , but very tastefully decorated, everything is spotlessly clean, and the proprietors are more than charming.
Very close to the hotel is the old city centre of Nice, with charming winding streets with numerous restaurants.
I stayed near the top floor, with a wonderful view across the old rooftops towards church towers and flowers. there is q smoking terrace on the very top floor

Room Tip: all the rooms are great

Great localization. Good for congresses, good for visiting, good for party.

But rooms are very small and the hotel ls old. A good renovation is needed
Don t forget to ask for your free glass of wine when you arrive

My husband and I spent a lovely week at Villa La Tour and we enjoyed our stay very much. The English speaking staff were all so helpful and friendly. The welcome drink was appreciated! The building is an old converted convent (so no elevator because of historic conservation issues). We were on the 3rd floor up steep narrow steps, so that might not suit everyone. The room was small but charming in a quaint way with stencil painted walls, wooden-shuttered windows that overlooked a street with more old charming buildings with wooden-shuttered windows. There is free fast wifi and an in-room safe (although that was in the bathroom!) The bathroom was fine, perhaps a shower screen rather than the shower curtain might have been better, but it was very small so maybe there wasn't enough space for a shower screen? The bed was comfortable. There is also a terrace on the roof, with a close up view of a charming clock tower. If you want to have a wine or two up there, the staff are happy to oblige, which we did. I did like that you didn't have to decide if you wanted breakfast or not until the morning, which we did have a few times as we were craving something other than croissants and bread for breakfast ... the hotel has a buffet with breakfast cereals, fresh and dried fruit, yoghurt, cheese, ham, and will boil an egg on request (also croissants if you want!). This was 12 Euro which was a little bit expensive considering it was only drip coffee, not espresso, but that's only a small complaint. The street noise is quite loud during the day (plenty of cafes and bars downstairs) but after about 11pm it was quiet. The windows blocked out most of the noise anyway. We had one night when the guests in the room next door kept going in and out their room at all hours and SLAMMING the door each time! The room doors do slam if you don't hold them to stop them from doing so, maybe a door closer that slowed the door closing could be a good idea for those selfish guests who don't care about waking up other guests. Overall I would recommend this hotel, unless you have a problem going up and down stairs.

Room Tip: We didn't get a room with a balcony, perhaps it would be better to shell out a bit more to get o...

This hotel is at the edge of Nice Vielle Ville and has some charm. The proprietor is very friendly and hospitable. The room we had was very small for the relatively high price of 160 Euros and the walls are fairly thin so we heard bathroom related noise from the adjacent room.

We would not stay there again.
