Overall we enjoyed our stay here but strange things happened. When we arrived we were told that our reservation for a sea view room via hotels.com had been lost - the proprietor offered us a better room at the original price with balcony for six nights and a free breakfast if we would accept a basic room for the 7th....

We stayed at Hotel Riviera for six nights in July 2011. The staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast good, room big with AC, free television and free wifi. The hotel is situated next to the Tourist Information, and it is approximately a 10 minutes walk to the city centre, 15 minutes walk to the railway station with trains to the...

A small and cosy hotel with a very nice boss and staff. Value for small money. I would be happy to go there again. Villefranche is very close to Monaco, Cannes Nice and all the small villages. Both bus and train is very near. Be avare that the latest bus from Nice depart very early in the evening - but...

Very noisy, had one of the mainroads just outside window (half the rooms are in this direction, so 50% chance you will get same problem). Also some electrical device connected to the toilet that made disturbances every 5th minute. The air-conditioning did not work properly, which in combination with the noisy road outside that made open windows problematic. In general,...

My family planned to live in the hotel "Riviera Villefranche" for 2 days. But on our arrival we were not provided the room according to our booking form (no bay view, no French bed etc.) The owner of the hotel Antonio Parnetti was not polite and helpful with us and at the end of the conversation he said that he...

Hotel Riviera was a pleasant surprise as we didn't expect much based on the price of other accommodation in Villefranche and this being the lower end. We paid 85 euro for the night for a double room inclusive of breakfast. The hotel is reasonably close to the train station (just walk the right way) to get there directly, so a...

We stayed two nights in this hotel. It was in our Michelin Guide, and we had no reservation anywhere at 9 p.m. We just dropped in, and they gave us a choice of two rooms, and we took the cheapest. Only 60 euro per night. The staff was helpful and spoke good English. Our room was truly minimal, but we...
