Looking for a getaway with your friends or partner and want it to be exciting and fun? Or your boss is paying for a stopover in Europe and you want to take maximum advantage of it?
Do you decide to spend your money an expensive 5* hotel? It’s time to ask yourself why? You could have much more fun, make more friends and create lasting memories at Villahostels, Nice.
Here’s 10 reasons why:
1. Happy Hour
I don’t see any happy hour deals at the Ritz. You can have a beer for 1.5€ or a good bottle of wine for 6.50€ at Villahostels. An average beer in the Ritz is €11! and the CHEAPEST bottle of wine in the Rivoli bar at the Ritz is a shocking €68, everything is nearly 10x more expensive! Get much more for your money in our cool bar, relax, be happy, it’s happy hour!
2. Riviera Hot Spot
On the French Riviera even “Winter” is a period with constant sunshine and an average temperature of 15 degrees. It’s just a 1 hour bus journey to the Mediterranean Alps and it’s stunning ski resorts. Spend 20 minutes on the train and you’re in exciting Monte Carlo, or 40 minutes and you’re in beautiful Italy. On the same day you can either visit 3 countries, go skiing in the morning and swimming in the evening or check out a relaxed historic village in the morning and move on to Monaco’s or Cannes’ Glamour and nightlife.
3. Fun times at the Hostel!
Expensive hotels don’t have beer pong or flip-cup! At the Villa you can play whatever you like – Wii, Twister, fancy dress, spin-the-bottle or a pub quiz … anything that makes you happy! If that’s all too much, hang out in our library, watch TV in ‘The Nook’ or rest in the catamaran nets suspended over our cool bar… It’s all fun, all the time.
4. Party on with our great nights out
Stuffy hotels don’t do a pub crawl and if it did you wouldn’t see half as many bars, make half as many new friends or have half as much fun as one of our pub crawls! Costing you less than 3 pints in London and featuring some of the best places to drink and party all night long, we’ve got an amazing night ready for you! The pub crawl features at least 3 of the best bars and finishes in one of Nice’s top night clubs.
5. Outdoor Sports and Adventure Tours
Bored of hanging out at the spa or beauty salon, need to get moving? If it’s adrenaline you’re after, a few days in Nice has all the excitement you need. You can choose from a wide range of activities including skiing (water or snow), sailing, scuba diving, canyoning, surfing, wakeboarding and more. If you don’t want to pay a penny for some action try hiking, swimming at one of the local beaches or work out at our Palestra. Finish your day with Yoga or a session in our sauna… if you really must relax 😉
Skiing in the streets of London…. Not so good!
6. The Azure Sea of the French Riviera
The stunning mediterranean coast is right on our doorstep. A short walk from the hostel through the beautiful old town and you are on the beach, explore all the local beaches around Nice or take a short bus or train ride to any number of fantastic beaches on the French Riviera. Why stay in a stuffy hotel when you can be part of the great outdoors on one of the world’s most beautiful stretches of coastline.
7. Great value and Freebies!
To kick start your day without breaking your budget you can fuel up with an all you can eat buffet breakfast at our hostels for just 5€! This is the perfect time to get inspired by our staff with heaps of free travel tips or to meet up with whoever is going your way that day. Hot drinks are free all day so you don’t have to be rich to have heaps of coffee and chat with all the friends you’ve made.
There is no free walking tour offered at the Ritz, if you want a sightseeing tour of London then you’ll have to get an extremely overpriced bus. Come with us on our FREE tour guided by our outgoing and charismatic staff. You don’t have to pay a penny and you’ll even have a picnic with one of the greatest views in Europe. Needless to say, WiFi is free anytime, anywhere in the hostels so keep us posted with your adventures on Facebook, e Instagram!
8. Make friends at our buzzing bar
Our cool buzzing bar is a great place to meet new friends, relax in the day and party at night! There is no doubt that our bar is WAY more sociable than any stuffy hotel bar. Rest in the Catamaran nets suspended over our cool bar or chill in the Library, play games, grab a delicious pizza from our pizza oven, enjoy the music and feel free to party on into the night right where you are or loosen up ready for a big night on the town!
9. Great food options without the crazy prices!
Afternoon tea for £55! It’s only tea and cake… An 8.5€ Provençal dish from our on-site chef is a much better deal! Homemade Pizzas from our Pizza oven, Salads, Cookies and Brownies or choose our dinner of the day such as Chilli Lime Salmon with minted couscous and stir fried vegetables or Parma ham chicken with pomme de terre puree and honey roasted carrots! If you really need to keep your costs down, make your own food in our free to use kitchen!
10. Our staff
Our multilingual staff are here for you, friendly, relaxed and helpful, everybody is treated equally within our hostel, if you have a problem, tell us, we will try to fix it, if you need information, just ask at reception. We aim to make you feel welcome and included, whatever your background.
