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

I can't say enough good things! Such a quaint hotel with a beautiful little garden outside. The owner was so helpful and friendly. We will definitely say here when we visit Nice again. The room had everything we needed and was a short walk from main areas of the city.

Return visit

We returned to this charming hotel for a longer stay. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and booked into a delightfully decorated room 9, which overlooked the garden. The room was spacious and decorated in typical french style. The bathroom was bright and with ample room. Villa Rivoli is well appointed, close to the Promenade de Anglais and within easy walking distance to the shopping areas and old town. Anastassia at the front desk was most helpful as were all the other staff. This place is a little gem. Our second visit was every bit a good as our last.

My favorite charming home away from home

I have been staying at Hotel Villa Rivoli for years and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Nice. Everything is perfect about it. The staff is so accommodating and lovely, you feel right at home from the moment you walk through the doors. They are so wonderful with helping you book day excursions, beach chairs, dinner reservations, and anything else you can imagine! The location is perfect... minutes walk to the Promenade des Anglais & beach. Walking distance to Old Town & all the restaurants you could want to go to in Nice. They have a lovely little breakfast you can choose to take inside the charming little salon or outside in the garden terrace. Starting your day this was is just so dreamy. Wonderful location, even better staff, and charm to the max got me hooked after my first time. I'll never stop coming back to the Hotel Villa Rivoli!!!
