We again had a wonderful 3 night stay in room 310 in Valence this past weekend. The hotel is so welcoming, staff incredibly helpful and friendly, rooms superb and quiet when facing the parking side , and location 10/10 !! For a 4 star hotel, the only thing missing for me, was there are no bathrobes in the rooms. Besides... More

Renovated it seems recently but quite haphazardly. Staff is extremely nice. Lobby is modern and welcoming. Rooms are more or less modern except for bathrooms. In one room, the bathroom stall was separate from the shower. In the other it lacked a shower curtain (but there was a drain in the bathroom floor (!)). Toilet paper would be helpful instead...

Great location in the centre of Valence, with secure parking at the back of the hotel. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly... they even gave us three bottles of cold water for our onward journey, nice touch. The room was adequate for the three of us, a double bed and a single pull out bed. Breakfast was... More

The secure parking is always appreciated when you are driving long distances with lots of luggage. We had a suite at a reasonable price. The hotel is right in the centre of town. Breakfast was absolutely fine with an option of a cheaper price for a coffee, croissant and orange juice. Would definitely stop here again.

This is a lovely hotel in the centre of Valence. I am happy to recommend it. Friendly staff. English was spoken at the reception, which helped us. Safe car parking for which we paid 10 euros,as we were carrying bikes this was important to us. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on the food.

We spent only one night in this hotel but just loved it! The staff was amazingly nice, helpful and professional. The bedroom was very comfortable with really nice bed; there is a very good parking and its location is just great. We will definitely be back soon.

Only one night, but very well looked after by staff who were very relaxed and friendly at the same time as they were professional. The room was excellent. Valence is a nice place.

Rarely does a hotel deliver on all levels. The room was spacious, modern, clean and comfortable; breakfast was delicious and plentiful; the terrace and communal areas were open and relaxed; the staff were helpful and friendly, and the secure parking added to peace of mind.
