This hotel is very well located, close to everything. They have a parking which is nice if you travel by car. The rooms are small but very clean and nicely decorated. Staff of the hotel is French so not as friendly as American (!!) but all the staffs are very professional and helpful. They should just learn to put a... More

Valence is a little gem of a place.Tranquil, pretty and a great place to stay for a couple of days. This hotel is located close to everything; station, shops, restaurants and parks.It is very clean, comfortable and service is top notch.Would recommend this place for couples who are looking for a quiet boutique style getaway.

Parking's the key here for a hotel that is neither interesting or appalling. Clean and tidy but in the centre of town -easy access to a lovely burg and as the title says -easy parking- a fairly important issue in the south of France. You'll forget the hotel but remember the town. Not a bad compromise -not everywhere can be... More

Why wasn't it perfect? Well, first of all - and I don't know if this is the fault of the hotel or the city - but it is impossible to find. I often extoll the excellence of French road signage - it is maybe the best in the world - so one starts to abandon the GPS and trust the... More

Very pleased with the hotel, it is very stylish , and with feel of quality. This was booked by the company I visiting, and I must say it was a nice surprise, it's central in an area that appears to be very nice. According to our business host, all the main restaurant are closed on a Monday, but we was... More

Located in the centre of Valence. Big private parking behind the hotel, but access is quite narrow. Don’t damage your car! Lobby is a great meeting place, you can sit at the fire place or place chess or play the piano. No restaurant, but the café Bancel opposite the hotel is bringing your dinner in your room and there are... More

This was a perfect stopover with easy secure parking and spacious public rooms and bedrooms. The hotel staff were charming and nothing was too much trouble to ensure our stay went well. The hotel is perfectly situated in the attractive area in the centre of Valence.

We adore this hotel and go back several times a year when visiting family who live in Valence. It is quiet, beautifully renovated with excellent service. You walk into a gorgeous lobby with bar area, fire place and a breakfast room all done in glass so very bright and airy. A great place to read a book, have a drink... More

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
