A really good choice with good parking, nice, clean modern rooms and all this within walking distance of the historical centre of Valence. A very good option indeed which is aided further by the friendly staff and good breakfast. No restaurant and a quiet bar, but so central that this does not matter!

From the moment we arrived for our four night stay, the staff were warm and welcoming. Our bags were delayed from our overseas flight and we were assisted with shopping suggestions, laundry service, and genuine sympathy... Not to mention cheers when the bags finally arrived. The room was clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast... Made... More

Four of us had to stay overnight in Valence due to bad weather at the local airport, we hadn't booked but did a quick look at booking.com for rates. We arrived and were quoted a similar rate to what we found on line and given full breakfast at the cheaper rate, nice touch, though I can't see why there are... More

Secure parking on site, swift and helpful check in. Very nice room with comfortable bed, excellent bathroom. Over looked car park at rear, very quiet, good nights sleep. No restaurant, but close to old town with plenty of quality restaurants. We would definitely stay here again and recommend the hotel. Did not have breakfast in hotel, so can't comment.

A very nice modern, clean, air-conditioned hotel, with very secure parking, though 10 euros a night for this seems rather expensive. We had a good-sized room at the back, which was very quiet and had a comfortable bed. Breakfast was priced at either 7,50 or 15 euros; our booking included breakfast, but apparently only the cheaper option. We have travelled... More

Stayed here for one night. the rooms are pleasant. I reserved a junior suite. There is no restaurant and in the afternoon there is only one staff person so the bar is not really open. Breakfast was good, more staff. Parking is convenient. Location is very good for walking about town and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from.... More

Our stay in Hotel de France was brief but very pleasant. The desk person gave us a map of a walking tour of the centreville, but we had arrived late in the afternoon and never got a chance to enjoy Valence. The parking garage was convenient and reasonably priced. We didn't eat the breakfast because we slept late the one... More

We stopped at the Hotel de France as a midway stopping point from Lausanne, Switzerland to the south of France. It was an excellent choice. We had booked a double but were given a large suite with small kitchenette, very clean with lots of space for relaxing, free wifi, and flatscreen TV. Lots of privacy, too, in that section, with...

Charming and friendly staff who took the time to humour me with my school boy attempts at French. The hotel is centrally located and an easy stroll from the TGV train station. The rooms are comfortable, breakfast excellent and the bar is well stocked. The hotel also has its own private secure car park. More importantly, Valence is at your... More
