A great location in the centre of Valence, easy access to the city centre restaurant, bars and shops. The rooms were modern and spacious, and looked recently refurbished. All amenities were available, including safe, but no iron, which was available on request. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice.

This property is conveniently located right at the centre of Valence, and is surrounded by restaurants and small shops. We stayed here for 2 nights during a visit to Rhone Valley. There is also private parking space at the back, with a modest fee. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are fairly large, clean and tastefully decorated, with free... More

I stayed at the hotel in connection with a business trip. The hotel in general was very nice and the personnel was service-minded and friendly! However, the rooms are too small only almost consisting of a big bed - and the bed was at a very low quality, completely ruining your night sleep. The wifi was way to slow to... More

Spent 7 days there. A really nice hotel, with on-site parking, which is always a bonus. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of options. Ideally located a few minutes from the city center. Take a short walk toward the river and you will find a multilevel park that is amazing.

Hotel de France is located near the old part of town, which by the way is a great place to hang out. Really nice room and bed. Mine was facing away from the city center and was really quiet. Parking in the backyard. Free wifi. Really great staff and I totally appreciated their restaurant recommendation. I had a great stay... More

My partner is from Valence so we travel there 1-2 times per year. We recently completed our third stay at the Hotel de France and have had consistently positive experiences. All of the staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are not luxuriously but are nicely decorated and clean and neat. The location in the center of town is... More

Three star hotels are about the maximum you can find in the centre of Valence. And the Hotel de France is a typical representative of this class: minimal room dressing (there's no minibar, no doors on the locker,...), a bathroom that needs some freshening up, a slow wifi that disappears from time to time (fortunately it's free), no restaurant, a...
