Hotel Diana
Ranked #1 of 43 Hotels in Tossa de Mar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We stayed three nights at Hotel Diana during a two week June 2014 vacation to Barcelona, Tossa de Mar, Provence and Paris. Only regret is we didn't stay longer at this unique boutique hotel in our balcony room with view overlooking the beautiful bay and historic old town castle. The hotel location was perfect for spending the day on the beach and swimming in the crystal clear Mediterranean sea. An unexpected plus was the the exceptional included breakfast that comes with buffet superior coffee, Cava, pastries, cereal, etc. and then a waiter served breakfast with perfect fried egg, bacon, fresh fruit, meat / cheese plate, etc. Room with balcony facing bay is worth the extra cost. Hotel service was friendly and helpful. As others have said driving to hotel entrance was difficult even with Garmin.

Room Tip: Stay in a sea view room with balcony.

If you choose Tossa del Mar as your destination, Hotel Diana is the best choice in town - beautiful architecture, nice service, and great location. It may only have two stars but it is a delightful and hospitable small hotel. The hotel is centrally located with an excellent view of the crescent shaped beach and the castle on the southern side. We had the good fortune of staying there during a 3-day beach football tournament and had a superb view of the action from our balcony. I agree with the reader that a balcony room is important. It really defined our stay. Try to get one on the 2nd or 3rd floor. The hotel room and bathroom are fine but not exceptional but we spent a lot of time on the balcony. The breakfast buffet on the terrace is very enjoyable and the hotel has a nice bar on both the street level and the balcony above. I recommend their mojito.

The hotel was very helpful to us during our stay. They arranged for a taxi to pick us up in Barcelona and for the return trip as well. Be sure to ask about the taxi accepting credit cards. They arranged for that on our trip to Tossa but our driver for the return did not accept a credit card payment.

Now, some travelers may debate whether Tossa is the perfect Costa Brava experience. We liked Tossa a lot but it's definitely a beach town and I would define it as a family beach town. Kids will have fun there. So, if you like to go to the beach, Tossa is great. It's not too big like the neighboring Lloret de Mar to the south. However, some of my Barcelona friends like to go a little further north and enjoy a little more seclusion. My wife and I spent 3 nights in Tossa and enjoyed it. There are plenty of restaurants in town and you generally don't need reservations.I recommend Tapas del Mar as the best and you will need a reservation there.

Room Tip: Make sure that you get a room with a balcony overlooking the beach. 2nd or 3rd floor.

Enjoyed the Hotel Diana for four days in mid June 2014.
We can only agree with the numerous reviews which praise this hotel's delightful and elegant building, the excellent rooms with balcony and wonderful sea and castle views (IF you can snag such a room e.g #307 - see other reviewers comments about different rooms), fast and reliable free internet, wonderfully friendly and helpful staff (especially Tere) and one of the best included breakfasts we have ever experienced. The front desk will provide beach towels for a deposit. The beach sand in Tossa is coarse but the sea is beautifully clear and great for swimming.
Rear of hotel opens to a pedestrian area with nearby shops selling wine, bread, cheese, etc for enjoying "do it yourself lunch" on your own balcony or even out at the front of the hotel where there is a large raised "patio" with lots of seating and wonderful views. Good alternative if you don't have a balcony.
We did, one day, briefly experience the strange drain smell mentioned by other reviewers but the staff were quickly on the scene to resolve the issue within the hour.
Because of its excellent location, the hotel is a little tricky to access by motor vehicle through a maze of one way streets. We were happy to have arranged a vehicle with driver!
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Modernist style hotel worth a visit even if you're not a guest there.
The common areas are stunning, especially for the architecture, and some of the furniture (though not all of it...)!
The outside garden is a must too!
The rooms are spacious, with typical tiled floors, but not up to the rest of the hotel.
In the pictures you can see two great rooms (there are really those two great rooms only): The suite and the sea view room with the iron furniture! Although they have more seaview rooms, they are completely different!
The location is perfect!
The staff is nice, and so is the breakfast!
And, of course, Tossa de Mar is a great place!
Would go back...but only for one of those two rooms!!

Beautiful hotel with wonderful location, just off the beach in Tossa. We had a room with a balcony with view of the castle. Just beautiful! The restaurant patio was also a great place to have a drink and take in the view. Staff was very friendly. Location right in the middle of Tossa. Great value. Only complaint was the room could get pretty warm so we often kept the balcony door open for some air/breeze. Also, there was sometimes a funny smell coming from the bathroom/plumbing. But don't think we would necessarily give up the location and the view for those minor inconveniences.

Room Tip: Definitely opt for a room with balcony. Ask for a view of the castle.

This hotel is absolutely wonderful. If you can stay here you should. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are unlike the international rooms that are so similar throughout the world.

The breakfast buffet is excellent. All in all I don't have a bad word to say about this hotel and I am a very critical man!

Room Tip: The square can get noisy so try to book the sea view rooms.
