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

A nice, romantic hotel

Very nice hotel and friendly staff. Rooms are different from each other and at least some of them are decorated very romantic, old fashion way. The house is old, witch was only positive thing in my opinion.

Lovely quirky hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Stayed 8 -11 March 2019 in room 4.
From the airport got bus 98 to Congres/promenade €6 about 25 mins then up rue de Rivoli at the Negresco Hotel took all of 5 minutes to walk
We were very early but our room was ready, reception were always so nice and friendly.
Room 4 is a small double and looks out to the main road. It is quite beautiful with pink material on the wall depicting race day and lovely furniture apart from the modern wardrobe not in keeping with the style, lovely shutters, plenty of lamps and a kettle with a few supplies, also there was a hairdryer in the bathroom.
Unfortunatly room 4 is connected to room 3 by a door, we could hear everything they did and vice versa which wasnt very good, ( perhaps a thick curtain on both sides may help) we never heard anything from room 5.
Bathroom was small with a very good working shower, the taps on the sink need deep cleaning but it was serviced with towels, tissues and soap.
Our room was tidyied every day and always looked lovely.
Hotel Rivoli is quirky, old, shabby, comfy and welcoming,
There is a lovely garden area to sit in on sunny days.
it is close to the promenade, Nice Ville station, supermarkets and restaurants.
All the staff were very nice and friendlly.

[Just a tip about trains and trams - they only accept coins not notes ]
We visted Monte Carlo and Antibes from the Nice Ville Railway Station which is ten minutes walk away.
