Lovely hotel right in the center of Valence, very modern rooms. We booked the family room spacious well equipped modern and in general looks very new. Location is great, we took the breakfast on the first morning, fresh, nice choice and tasted great. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Secure parking at the rear of the hotel great if you...

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

Clean, modern place in Valence in the heart of town. Quiet and well maintained with a friendly staff. Only negative was that the front desk was staffed by one person, who was bogged down when I arrived by just one other guest asking to change a room. This was just a minor nuisance in a relatively pleasant and satisfactory stay.... More

Very nice and modern hotel in the heart of this town. Private parking, nice bar area and good breakfast, everything almost perfect, bisdes: when we looked in the evening to book this place we found it on a hotel booking site but it wasn't clear if they take dogs. So we called the hotel and the hotel said yes. So... More

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
