Fodor's Expert Review Hôtel de la Darse
32 av. Général de Gaulle, Villefranche-sur-Mer, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 06230, France
Who needs luxury fittings and fabrics when you have a view like this one overlooking the old harbor of Villefranche, and at such a highly affordable price? The most desirable rooms at this simple yet welcoming 1950s hotel even have balconies with sweeping panoramas. The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from the bustle of the town center, an advantage in peak season. Go for the sea-view rooms—it's hard to find a better bargain along this stretch of coast.
- the views over the Old Port
- friendly, clean, well-located
- there is a lot of waking involved both to and within this hotel (no elevator)
- slightly outside the center of town
