“Not bad, not great.”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Diana for two nights. The location was convenient to old town and Matisse Chapel, and free parking in a garage below the hotel was very handy. The lobby was modern and stylish. However, the room was a bit shabby, definitely not stylish. The hotel's photos don't really explain that the view from the lower floors shows the back side of other modern, uninteresting buildings. The wide balcony also makes for a lot of noise from the cafe below or those nearby neighbors' balconies. All of this would be understandable for a 3 star hotel. But then, the staff asked us no less than 4 times whether we would be taking breakfast. You'd think that they'd have written down our response (no, thank you) sooner. Not bad but not great.

Stayed here 2 nights. Had a superior room with hill view. Location very handy for bars and restaurants and old town Vence. Easy to find from bus. Very handy - we arrived from Cannes and were able to travel to St Paul, Tourettes and Nice.
Rooms fine - liked having a fridge but would have loved tea/coffee making for a cuppa on the balcony.The owner seemed very nice and guy on reception was helpful. Free wi fi worked well. We didn't have breakfast but had a few drinks in the bar/lobby one night. Some nice quirky art work around.
More along the lines of a b&b than a hotel but well worth a stay.

Spent one night in this trendy little hotel and can't wait to return. The rooms are nicely furnished, the hotel is small and centrally located, and the staff friendly and helpful. A definite must stay here if in the area.

This is a great hotel. Rooms are clean and very large for Europe. Lots of plugs for all the electronics. The staff is very helpful, the recommed some great local, out of the way places for dinner and the best way to get to Murano. The location is perfect. A few streets behind San Marco, but very quiet so you don't feel like you are staying in a tourist spot. Only ate breakfast there once, it was the typical European meal, yogurt, cereal, roll, jam, boiled egg, coffee and juice.

This is a wonderful hotel in the historic section of Vence. Be sure to make time to walk to the historic area dating back to the Roman era in places. Outside the historic area is a modern vibrant town with friendly people. Situated in a residential area, the hotel has many amenities including free breakfast in a garden area. The lobby and rooms are stone tiled, flat screen TVs are in the rooms. The bathrooms are adequate but small tubs. Bed is comfortable enough. There are lovely balconies with seating for two.Heating is fine and there is AC for the summer. The only con is the street does have motor vehicle noise but that is typical and didn't bother me at all. Views are amazing from upper floor.

Room Tip: Definitely upper floor unless personal mobility is an issue - the lift is old ,doors heavy and a lit...

We had been in Vance at the beginning of January and we found in Hotel Diana a very good location, few steps from the old city, kindly staff. Suggestion: if you get a room at high floor (he had our at 5th) you could enjoy a beautiful view on the mountains with the sunset. Parking (on payment) on the same building. Wi-fi connection for free.

This little hotel is a nugget in the rough, not to say that the area is rough - far from it, its in the middle of a series of perched villages like St. Paul de Vence, Tourette Sur Loup and Gordon.
The Hotel is just a short walk to the old walled city center of Vence which contains countless restaurants with many choices of cuisine and of course all serve the French wines of the region. A light breakfast is served in the dining area overlooking the gardens and Koi pond. In the evening before going out to dinner stop by the quite little bar area for a glass of wine or cocktail. There is protected parking available in the basement for those arriving by car. The staff was exceptional and made every effort to provide for our needs. As a diabetic they even helped by providing proper food and condiments for our meals.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side have a partial view of the Med. and overlook the garden, much quiter then the...
