“Coming back here in September 2011”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

Excellent property just outside the ancient city walls. Owners and staff were terrific. Great rooms and a nice garden out back to relax or enjoy a glass of wine.
I would recommend for couples, singles or groups. I was leading a group of 27 and enjoyed our whole experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the garden.

This hotel is highly recomendable. The rooms are comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The hotel has a very beautiful garden with a fishpond. Here you can enjoy a tasty breakfast in quite surroundings.
The owners and staff are very kind and helpfull!
I have already booked my next stay, wich will take place in July 2011 at this hotel.

In one word: "cheap". Cheap lobby, cheap service, cheap area, cheap noise isolation. The staff at the reception hardly speaks English so unless you are fluent in French be ready for a heavy language barrier, which can prove to be quite a problem if you want to complain that AC and the TV do not work... Overall not friendly at all. The only thing that is definitely not cheap is the price they charge you for everything (including instant coffee sold as a genuine expresso!). Hey Hotel Diana folks, your hotel is only a tacky 3 stars. We were leaving early (6am) on the last day to ctach our plane back home and we had told them about it. Despite this, no one was there to open the doors for us. We were locked inside and we missed our plane because of that!!!! If I had know, I could have gone to a much better place in Vence for the same price (probably even less). Not good value for your money and NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!

The Hotel Diana is family owned and operated and they are the nicest folks you'll ever meet in France, there isn't anything they won't do for you. The room wasn't huge, but it had a gorgeous mountain view and was super clean with a great king size bed. Hi-Speed wireless internet, no charge, much appreciated. The additional cost for breakfast is kind of expensive considering all the wonderful cafes and bakeries just a few blocks away. Location is perfect, walk anywhere in Vence. We loved the roof top "oasis", jacuzzi and 360 degree view of this beautiful place. Say hello to the owners from the Wendels, we'll be back.

In one word: tops! Spacious room; very friendly staff (couple with son); close to old city; nice solarium and view on top floor; breakfast in bed. 7 EURO extra for parking should be included in the room price though ;) The owners love their job, and that DEFINITELY shows.

Would go back in a heartbeat, and highly recommend this place!
