The location is what we liked the most, nearby the Plaça d’Ajuntament (Valencia’s central square) - where’s even possible to see the square and the Ajuntament building (City Hall) from the hotel entrance - and 5 min walking from Colón metro stop (direct line from Manises Airport, in a 20 minutes journey). The hotel facilities are regular, normal for a traditional spanish and antique building, with an old but renovated lift (only 3 persons at a time) covering 4 floors.
Our room was at 2nd floor, spacious enough, clean, convenient a/c (very warm as in almost all hotels), LCD TV with several valencian, spanish and international channels, a window fronting the backdoor terrace, no barfridge, no vault, no frills, wooden floor (not so comfy as a carpet floor, but not a big problem), no soundproof isolation what so ever (understandable for an antique building but a big issue if you have noisy people in the near rooms and corridor).
The bathroom was even more renovated than the room, very modern and appealing, but very small if you are the kind of people that enjoys some space to bath and stand. No extra frills also.
The breakfast was regular (bread, croissants, butter, marmelade, juice, coffee and milk), don’t expect the kind of variety as in some hotels, but ok if you are the kind of people that stress out when leaving the hotel without your breakfast. There’s a lot of cafés and places serving spanish desayunos (breakfast) nearby.
Front desk staff were very nice and friendly, always giving usefull info about bus, metro… curiously it started badly the days before when I had no aswear when I e-mailed them to confirm my booking reservation, thing that I always do to avoid surprises and that I always have aswear from the hotel where I will be staying.
After all, a good choice and reasonable price paid for a room.
Higher floors have less probability to catch noises from the street, as rooms far from lift.
