Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Perfect for short stay, centre of everything on the main street but nice quiet room. Friendly staff happy to give restaurant recommendations and even had a drink paid for is at the restaurant, now that is hospitality! Limited amenities, ie no pool or gym but perfect base for business travel or exploring the region

Good hotel with secure and safe parking. As a solo motorcyclist it ticks all the boxes. Easy to find with hot bath and clean, comfortable bed. Friendly staff and a nice bar area for a cold beer. Very quiet at weekends- perfect! Good restaurants within 10 mins walk and a great breakfast.

A hotel that is ok for business or whilst on vacation
Breakfast was little disappointing but the rooms /bathrooms and linen were superb
Slow internet connection which lets the place down for a business traveller who may need to review some big files......needs to review to get a top vote

A real gem for a 3 star hotel. Very chic interior, wonderful rooms, right in the centre near to the Rhône river. In - room tea and coffee facilities, buffet breakfast, and a very inviting Piano bar.
The standard of fittings throughout the hotel are of the highest quality and it will most definitely be on my highly recommended list to anyone coming to Valence.
Be warned, it is very popular and needs to be booked well in advance to guarantee a room.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main road (a wide boulevard) have a terrific view of the neo - renaisance architect...

Slightly above my normal price range, but it had been a tiring day and the price offered was €30 below the price posted outside.
So for €100 we got a smallish double room with a big bed (excellent) comfortable mattress
and duvet and four pillows!
A bath and shower and a slightly cramped WC in the same room.
A kettle and no cups, we brought our own and our own tea and coffee which was just as well.
maybe you can ask for more.

We didn't have room service or breakfast but I feel confident they were fine.
The concierge and reception were excellent.
Parking, free and properly secure which was useful as the car was full of stuff.
Also a wonderful location just in the middle of the town.
Well worth the money

Room Tip: Ask for a back room overlooking the car park, but I doubt front rooms are noisy and you might see mo...

First time here and I will be coming back. Cristal on reception was very helpful. Rooms (ours was at the rear of the hotel overlooking the car park, 4th floor) few nice and comfy beds. Nice show and bathroom. Even some UK TV. Breakfast OK but could be better. Entrance to parking was 'tight' for a 7m 4WD but very safe. Reception directed us to a few restaurants just a few minutes walk away. Nice hotel and will be back. Only problem arriving at rush time on a Friday was very busy.

Room Tip: Book early and have a room at the back of the hotel

Located in downtown Valence. A little high priced for a provincial town like Valence. Comfortable "superior" rooms. OK continental breakfast. Parking for about 10 euro/night. The hotel made the recommendation for Restaurant "La Licorne" around the corner - which was a good choice.
