Hotel Villa Victoria
Travel Blogs from Nice
We slept in this morning!! It was pretty exciting. Our beds were so comfy and so warm that we slept in till 7:30 and then went down for breakfast at the hotel. We then made our way out of the hotel and down the one little road praying that we wouldnt meet any other cars.
It was a long drive from Innsbruck to Nice - it took us about 8 …
... feeling sleepy! We got on the bus & did almost 2 laps of Nice before jumping off not far from or place and walking to the old castle for a look at the views. We headed back and stopped at the Mojito bar for a drink with Lucy just beating us back and waving from the balcony ready to join us.
We watched the soccer - Australia vs Netherlands until 1/2 time when we were losing... then headed up to make the platter of food for dinner. I am so lucky to be travelling ...
... drive not knowing how long the drive would be. We arrived at the Genoa train station 4 HOURS early for our train. This blog will detail the activities that kept us entertained in the Genoa train station. First let me say the train station looks like it just went through all world wars at the same time. Bits of floor are missing. No escalators work. Half the building is shut down. I hope the trains are in better condition than the station. We found a ...
... to the b&b. on microwaving our meals - lasagne for Paul and mushroom risotto for me, we realised that we had no cutlery to eat it with, and we couldn't find any in the guest house. So be went for another little walk to a convenience store and bought a couple of plastic forks. The meals weren't too bad actually, we were happy with them. It was after 11 by this stage and we were quite tired so we went to sleep... And a very nice sleep we ...
... Puerto Morelos. Well, after arriving at the wrong terminal thanks to the bus driver who told me the wrong place to go to for international flights, I tried not to panic. I waited 20 mins for a shuttle to terminal two where I was to catch my flight to Munich. All was steady, and I was even allowed to bring my guitar in the cabin, saving me $60US (gotta love European airlines). Before my flight I loaded up on fried food and what the people at Bubba ...

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.
