Our second stay at this hotel. Still impeccable service, tidy rooms and mesmerizing sea views from the rooms. I miss the moments when the sun rises over the bay and flows into your room and your terrace, it's memorable. I feel that this is a hotel that I wouldn't like to describe too closely because it might get too popular...

A friend and I used this hotel as our base for our 2 night stay for the tennis in Monte Carlo. We received a very warm welcome from the young lady behind the desk. We have stayed in a few hotels in the area over the last few years for the tennis and this is the best yet. We stayed...

We loved this hotel and location. Never been to France before (middle aged married couple) but will definately return. Lovely 'cosy' hotel, very clean, friendly, quiet (apart from some street noise) and wonderful staff. Julien, Magali and Olivier need mentioning. Julien is like your best friend! Very helpful. The whole experience was relaxing, casual. Lovely local restaurants - some very...

We had a wonderful week at Hotel Welcome in early March. Our corner room on the 4th floor had remarkable views from two balconies and was a comfy retreat after a full day of sightseeing in this beautiful area. Special thanks to the front desk where Julien and Olivier were always ready to help with maps, directions,and suggestions for great...

From our welcome by Olivier, to all the staff, we could not have had a better stay. We had the cabin-boat suite on the top floor, and really enjoyed the ambience. Mind you, the miniscule toilet compartment was the smallest ever - even the 'heads' on a small sailing boat is larger! Historic and interesting art abounds in the hotel,...

Hotel Welcome lives up to its name. The staff couldn't be more attentive or helpful. We had room 54 which although on the small side is perfectly formed with amazing views of the bay a comfortable bed and the ambience of a ship's cabin. It's just perfect as are the lovely little touches, fresh flowers in the room and chocolates...

My sister and I stayed at Hotel Welcome three nights in February. This is an historic hotel that has been both a convent and a brothel! Olivier at the front desk is so charming. We found fresh flowers in our room. Try to get a balcony room as you look out at the outdoor scene and the beautiful azure Mediterranean....

Loved Villefranche sur mer and loved the Welcome Hotel! We stayed in the Jean Cocteau room. The view was amazing, in the morning the local fisherman brought his catch to a little stall out the front! The sunset over the bay was stunning. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful! Can't wait to come back and stay again.

I loved this hotel. The location is absolutely perfect and just where you want to be. The staff are wonderful and extremely gracious and genteel. Our corner room was wonderful facing the harbor with two balconies. Even the shuttered window in the bathroom opened!
