Hotel Diana
Ranked #1 of 43 Hotels in Tossa de Mar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Quite hard to locate even with GPS, and if not for a kind local cyclist, would not have found it so easily. But once there, inside is a revelation. It is everything we read about but did not expect to be so truly beautiful. Coming in from a cold windy Spring evening, it was warm and inviting, beautifully decorated and wonderful atmosphere in the downstairs rooms, very Gaudiesque, and on inspeciton of the exterior, elegantly tiled in the manner of Gaudi. The most striking building on the beachfront so we were pleased to be there. The room facing the sea was worth the extra cost for the views! We enjoyed the walk around the old walls that we saw from the hotel. Some of the group had to make a very early start to catch a flight from Barcelona at 6am and a taxivan was arranged by the hotel without any problem. The rooms were well furnished and comfortable with good bathroom facilties, and regretted that we had no time to stay for the breakfast to enjoy the hospitality.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the sea view.

Stayed here for Easter break based on Tripadvisor reviews! Hotel email is to a central office for hotel chain and are very helpful meet your requests! They arranged our transfer to and from Barcelona which was cheaper than other firms and took hassle away!
From the day we arrived in Tossa de Mar to the day we left we relaxed... Lovely place, shops, restraunts and beach of course....
The reception staff were on call however they were not overly friendly! When we arrived with bags we were not asked were we ok with them! On the second day we changed to "Suite Diana" which was pre arranged... As my mum was with me I had to move all bags up in lift... As I was struggling in lift with bag the lady cleaning rooms clearly saw me trying to hold lift n move bags however she didn't offer to help and just walked by! As they walked past at anytime the staff other than reception staff did not say hello, good bye or anything!!
Toiletries were not replaced and as we would have a shower twice in the day they were used up quickly!!
Room with view is worth the extra money and if you can request the suite... It's breath taking..... The whole top floor is exclusively yours... The sea views are amazing n sun shine travels around which you can follow and enjoy!! We had breakfast on our balcony each morning!!
On check out lady at reception didn't ask did we enjoy stay or anything! She stored bags which we had to haul in all bags to a small room at back of reception desk! She stood and watched and made no attempt to take even a small bag to put in!
On another occasion I saw an old man arrive with 2 big suitcases, again, staff were standing and just watched as he struggled in!!
Tossa de Mar is lovely.... Shops are plentiful, lots of lovely restraunts.... Head up to lighthouse... On little green train or on foot.... Also blue train takes u around town when u realise your stating in best part...
Hotel is lovely, great character n "old world" style... Would def stay again n hopefully customer service will be improved....

We were lucky enough to stay here in the suite for a weekend in April. The views were great on all terraces and the whole hotel had a really nice and interesting feel to it. Breakfast was very good too!

The weather was pretty good so we could enjoy the terraces and in summer it must be even more amazing!

Room Tip: The suite is really nice as a special treat. Having the top terrace does give you more privacy.

We can't understand the star rating - this hotel has only 2 stars yet has the facilities of some 5 star hotels we have stayed in. The house is in Modernist style (a liitle reminiscent of Gaudi) with a fantastic reception and communal rooms downstairs. The bedroom are spacious and exceptionally well equipped with all the toiletries you could ever need, plus a free safe, free WiFi, flat screen TV. Breakfast are buffet style plus you are served with hot food and cold meats & cheeses if you want.
We stayed in April and the room rates were exceptional value for money - we took the cheaper room that overlooks the old square but for €30 more you can have a sea view looking towards the old medieval town and the lighthouse.
This hotel is no 1 on trip advisor for Tossa de Mar and it is clear why, it is, in a word fantastic. We wouldn't normally stay in a 2 star hotel but the reviews made us try this hotel and we are so glad we did.

Stayed: April 2012

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for your review.

We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We really appreciate that you would rate us as a 5 star hotel. Unfortunatelly, spanish rating law does not help small hotels in antique buildings. We are making improvements in our service in order to get a 4 stars class, so hopefuly in some years we will be rated as a 4 stars.

Please, do not hesitate to contact any member of our staff for anything you might need.

On behalf of all the Hotel Diana staff, thank you very much.

This hotel was building in the '20 of XX cent. and is a enchanting place to stay in Tossa de Mar if you have a storic interest and no only the aim to go to the beach or at the disco.
I liked reading my book in the fire place room, and discover Modernist details (windows, wall decorations) all around. When you go out from the backyard, you are in front of the sea.
Very near to the Middleage Center and to the Castle.
Very rich the breakfast, also with spanish food (not only sweets and corn flakes as the usual, and I don't like sweet breakfast tto much....).
Very good, a special place in continental Spain.

We had a ten day trip around Barcelona in October 2011 and decided to spend one night in Tossa de Mar, and accordingly booked a sea-view room at Hotel Diana. The view is gorgeous, we can stay in the balcony to enjoy sunrise. The location is, I think, the best among Tossa, as only seconds walk to restaurants, beach, and ciutat vella is within five minute's reach. Breakfast is reasonable and outdoor seating is comfort. Free wifi is promising as we eventually only found 2 out 5 hotels in our trip have it free. Overall building is beautiful and impressive, compatible with this beautiful town Tossa de mar and wonderful escape for us who come from city (Hong Kong).

Yes, it's tucked away in Tossa's historic downtown, and your first effort at locating the Diana challenging. But staying in this art nouveau treasure of a building made our two-day side trip to Costa Brava a delight -- especially since we were in #207, a spacious room with a terrace as well as view of the sea and castle. Fabulous common spaces, though the rooms, baths and beds would be described as basic/adequate rather than posh. All desk staffers were friendly and very helpful in guiding our day-drives to Cadaques and Girona. There are dozens of eating places within a stroll of just a few streets: don't miss the one written up in Michelin, Can de Simon (or something very close to that...this is being written en route from Spain so without restaurant card). Superb!

Room Tip: 207 and 206 next door seem to be best.
