Overview

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.

Rooms

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.

Dining

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.

Location

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

Quaint and charming hotel. Reasonably priced and a 5 min walk to the Promanade des Anglais. The rooms are clean and cosy with padded wallpaper. Staff are friendly and speak good English. No Kitchen so breakfast is Continental only. Also no lift/elevator.

Expensive and dated

Good location, close to Promenade des Anglais and vielle ville. Friendly staff do their best with an old, tired building. First room we were shown had ants in the bed. Parking was extra. No doorbell buzzer. Any trip to Nice is a hassle if you have a car. Good location, but would look elsewhere in future. We paid more here than for much nicer places in Milano, Bellagio, Levanto, so that was disappointing, but may just be Nice economics.
