A choice of room types at a romantic Belle Epoque hotel in Nice, within walking distance of the Promenade des Anglais

The Lowdown

Nice doesn’t take its position as the capital of the Côte d’Azur lightly. With its infamous Promenade des Anglais leading you from pebble beaches to legendary nightlife, this is the thriving heart of the French Riviera. Year-round sunshine and postcard-worthy bay views help seal the deal too.
Holding court just 100 metres from Promenade des Anglais since 1890, the Hotel Villa Rivoli credits its historic roots and grand designs back to architect Monsieur Blanchi. Behind its Belle Epoque style, you’ll find guestrooms as grand as they are comfortable, with antique-furniture topped with cool, crisp linens. Make the short walk to the legendary Promenade des Anglais or enjoy some quiet time on the private beach the hotel has access to.


Follow the hotel’s original winding staircase to its guestrooms and you’ll find a flair for floral wallpaper and antique-style furniture. Many of the rooms have peaceful views of the ‘Musician’s quarter’ and the gardens. Flatscreen televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi and air conditioning also make up those all-important extras.


At just 100 metres from the Promenade des Anglais, you’ll find plenty of dining and drinking options nearby here. There’s also a buffet breakfast, which can be enjoyed in the comfort of your guestroom or the bright breakfast room, to help start your day in the right way.


At just a 10-minute walk from the central railway station and 100 metres from the Promenade des Anglais and Nice’s beaches, the Hotel Villa Rivoli is perfectly placed for day trips and sunbathing sessions. For a break from the beach, you’ll also find the Massena square, pretty lanes and flower market of Nice’s old town within walking distance. International transfers to Nice Airport are just a 98 shuttle bus away, too

Stayed here 5th May for only one night and had a beautiful ground floor room with ensuite,the hotel is beautiful,wonderfully furnished and represents the style of the area
Upon arrival we were welcomed by the owner and staff who made us feel totally welcome.We arrived a few hours before the 3pm check in but they still accommodated us without any problem whatsoever,We sat and had drinks in the garden area whilst we waited for our friends which was lovely.
The lounge is extremely welcoming and this area doubles up as the breakfast area which was plentiful and tasty and well worth having.
Fabulous location just behind the Negresco hotel so 5 mins to the sea and 10 mins to the train station where we took a trip to Monaco
All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would most certainly return
Thankyou for your hospitality

A true villa in an excellent area
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The place is wonderful, with a last century vibe. There is a piano were guests are welcome to play and our room was lovely, although I very much regretted that the bathroom amenities were made in China, while being so close to Grasse, in a country known for its cosmetics and a neighbor as well like Italy. I would have otherwise given 5 stars.

Short Stay

We stayed here four nights in early April in a Superior room. The room was ok but the bathroom was very cramped. Sound proofing could have been better. As usual the wi-fi was not very good. The breakfast room was very crowded and the food average. Staff were pleasant, charming and helpful. Hotel is well situated about 100 metres from the promenade de anglais. Local bus stops were nearby, as well as the stop for the airport shuttle bus near Hotel Negresco on the promenade.

Quaint boutique hotel
Reviewed 2 months ago

The location of this hotel is great and it's a mere 5 minute walk to the seafront, yet it's still very quiet. The staff were very helpful and gave nice little touches such as easter eggs at breakfast! We were in a basement room, which still had a window so wasn't too dark. The bathroom was very clean and, even though the room wasn't huge, it was fine for a one night stay. The only challenge with the basement was that we were under the dining room, so it was a little noisy whilst they were preparing breakfast. The breakfast was good and traditionally French - I was so pleased to see compote! We had an offer for breakfast but not sure if it would have been value for money at full price. Would definitely stay here again.
