... was the Monte Carlo. We put a little extra effort into getting ready swapping our hiking boots for flats and actually brushing my hair. All dolled up we caught a train in. There were amazing fountains and a big silver dome thingo that reflected the city we walked in after getting out ID's checked taking in the fabulousness that was the Monte Carlo Casino. I was gambling on a backpackers budget so I had my €5 ready to splurge. A woman came up to ...
... Nice. It was only 10:00. The hotel is only a short walk and we managed to drop our bags of until 15:00 when we could check in at The Hotel Madrid. So off for a days sight seeing in Nice. We are only 20m from the main shopping street, so we walked on down towards the bay. In Cannes I saw an old shrivelled up woman dressed to the nines like a teenager, almost the first thing we saw as we entered the main street was a guy pushing 70 limping along. He was wearing ...
... journey: We visited the cemetery where Marc Chagall is buried and placed small stones on his grave. Then Annie and Paula went to the little tourist office, just across from the estate agent’s where we found La Golondrina. The office was able to supply Annie with the phone number of her dear friend, the artist and St Paul fixture Nanou. Since Nanou speaks almost no English, Paula translated. They made arrangements for us to visit Nanou at her house and studio the next ...
Andies hostel is at the north point in town a 10 min tram ride from the
beach. Ended up hanging here with my bags for the awesome atmosphere, 1euro
happy hour and 7 dollar pizzas. Met a teacher from New York (Jenny),
newlywed 24 year old from South Carolina who married 3 days ago.
Unfortunately his wife got sick and is a few days behind. ...
Riding from Marseiile was through hills mostly for the first day. The second day I spent on the coastal road, which was new for me. What a coast, too. At least from the city of Frejus to a little before Cannes. In this area, the rocks are no longer gray, but red. I think this stretch of coastal road was only around ten miles long, but the scenery is something to look at. I would call this the most beautiful area I've yet ridden, even better (though much different) than the Pyrenees. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Victoria Nice
I have read previous reviews about bugs on beds and stolen luggage after we have made our reservation so we were somewhat a bit concerned whether we made the right choice.
Pleasant and well located
We stayed at the Villa Victoria hotel during Carnival week in Nice in February 2005. The hotel was clean, efficient and very well located, about 5 mins walk from shops and the Promenade des Anglais. The staff were universally helpful and pleasant and the room (which overlooked the street) was comfortable, if basic, with a very good bed and a small but bright and well equipped bathroom. The public sitting space was small and a bit spartan and the "bar" was a shelf in the breakfast area. The garden looked as if it would be lovely in summer with arbours, sun beds etc ready for use when the weather improved.
Hated it - all luggage stolen from reception!
On the last day of our stay we left luggage in reception for a couple of hours before going to the airport. When we went back to pick it up someone had stolen all four bags - simply walked in and taken the lot from behind the reception desk! The Hotel owner was totally unsympathetic and we have received no compensation either from him or his insurance company although we reported it to the French police. We lost nearly two thousand pound worth of clothes and other goods because of the Hotel's negligence. As far as I know no investigation took place either by the Hotel or the police. The Hotel say that they have improved the system now but I wouldn't bet on it! Don't stay here if you value your belongings!
Bugs definately gone!
On the back of your last reviewer we nearly cancelled our stay but decided to face up to the wildlife head on.....and survived without a bug in sight. Instead we had a wondeful stay in a charming hotel with great facilities, friendly staff, a spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated room and an outstanding location just at the edge of everything on Nice's poshest street.
Genuinely one of those places where you can't decide wether to tell everyone how good it is, or keep quiet so the world doesn't find out and spoil it!
Go and go soon (and book a room facing the garden) - I was almost disappointed not to get one bite, though
We woke up the second night and realized that the bed was full of small bugs! We had bites all over and the sheets were bloody from the bites on our legs and arms! We contacted the concierge and got another room. Instead of 108 we got 308. Next morning we contacted management but they did never take it really seriously, so they might not have had the room disinfected proberly, which is the reason why we write this. We had to change hotel and spent a lot of time on this! Once returned to Denmark we had to put all our things in the freezer to get rid of all the bugs! Bad holiday!

We Keep Coming Back
Very comfortable Hotel in quiet suburb ,but within easy reach of the City. Staff pleasant,unobtrusive but on hand to offer information and advice. Next visit in September will be our fourth.Garden at the rear a nice retreat for those days when you just want relax.
My husband and I ( we are in our mid fifties) stayed at the Villa Victoria for a few days in July, 2003. Our room was so spacious, bed was great, bathroom very clean, modern and it even had a drying rack!
Friendly attentive, helpful serviceand staff. Lovely breakfast. Rooms pleasant if a bit jaded decor-wise. Safe didn't work and they could not fix it but were helpful in trying. Rooms quiet despite being on road side and air condition efficient during the heatwave we experienced.
Nice gardens to relax in. Would stay there again.
