Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I booked this hotel several months ago for an adult family holiday in February. Unfortunately during the period of time that I was there the foyer and reception area was being refurbished, so there was no bar and breakfast was relocated to a lower floor. I would have probably booked somewhere if I had known. However it was a minor inconvenience. All the reception staff, day and night, were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is in a great location for the Oceanografico and the Science Museum, the Tourist hop on, hop bus and local buses. It is next to the Carrefour Shopping centre, which has lots of different restaurants. As it was half term there were several families plus a group of Italian students. The hotel is also used by business people and it has conference facilities.

As IHG member I had chosen this hotel for its location. The room and especially the bed (for 2p) was really small though. Walls are rather thin as well.
For breakfast the receptionist always requested the day before to choose a specific hour in advance, but upon arrival one still had to wait 5-10 minutes before receiving a table in the (very noisy) cafeteria that is located next to the reception. Choice and quality of the breakfast buffet were OK.
The entire staff was at all times very friendly and extremely helpful !
I personally find this hotel more a family hotel (plenty of things to do for the kids at site and nearby) than a hotel for couples.

The hotel is just a couple of blocks from the Oceanogràfic València and City of Arts and Sciences, which is what we wanted. It is also a few meters from a Shopping Centre, as we have a baby and being close to a shop was great.
The hotel is good for what you pay. Not cheap no expensive. The breakfast, included, was good and varied.

The location can’t be beat. It’s walking distance from all the cool buildings and architecture you could ever hope to see! Getting into old town Valencia and the beach is really easy by bus. The staff were very helpful. Ask for room away from the elevators if things like that bother you. Breakfast ok and room was clean.

Arriving into the box sized room the first thing I noticed was the lack of wardrobes, it was a rail on a wall.

The room was either too hot or too cold, the air conditioning did not work.

The bed was not a double and the pillows overhung the sides because it was a queen bed.

The sheets were ripped and frayed at the edges.

There was mould and rust in the bathroom with grout coming away in parts and the grab handle for the bath coming off the wall. I felt dirty after being in that bathroom.

There was no hot water working at the sink tap, no iron, no hairdryer, no kettle in the room and no hot drink facilities before or after breakfast.

The hotel was advertised as having tea and coffee making facilities in the room and full breakfast.

Breakfast consisted of bite sized white bread rolls, commercially produced sliced bread, ham slices, cheese slices, Spanish omelette, masses if Kiwi fruit which can be LETHAL to allergy sufferers, mixed in with other fruits, cornflakes, chocolate flakes, dried fruit and croissants.

There was no hot food, no eggs, no bacon, no wholegrain bread, no salad, no bananas, no oats in fact NOTHING healthy.

This is false and illegal advertising as the full breakfast was a very poor limited selection and totally unsuitable for those who eat 'clean'.

I made my complaints to IHG who said the front desk would contact me to discuss this but they never did. I asked to speak to someone and was told I would be contacted but I wasn't.

I still feel dirty remembering that bathroom and advise travellers to AVOID at all costs.

My husband and I recently came to Valencia for a quick visit and spent a Sunday night at this hotel. It is located in a wonderful area, next to a shopping center (mall) and 10 minute walk to the City of Arts and Science. The staff were extremely polite and welcoming, the room was clean and well set up. Our stay included breakfast which was plentiful and delicious (from cereals, fresh fruits, pastries, cheeses/hams, bread, tortilla). We chose not to use their paid parking and were lucky to find free parking place nearby. If you plan on visiting the City of Arts and Science, then I truly recommend this hotel for your stay.

Recently spent a month travelling around Spain and spent 8 days here. First let me start by saying my review is based on the hotel and not the staff. The staff were all professional and hard working. My issues with this hotel are the following:

• Room was hot and it would never get to a good cooling temp. It would be warm all day and cool off a little more at night but never seemed to get below 79 degree F (26.1 C).
• At the entrance you could see the hole in the roof where the AC unit water leaked. There is obvious issues with their AC but the entire stay I never saw anyone ever work on it.
• There is no ice machine or fridge in the room. WTF – what do you do when you want a cold drink?

I’ll give them credit for the breakfast as there were lots of option except no warm foods. Mainly bread, pastries, and various lunch slices of meat. The hotel seemed run down with holes in the wall and lame attempt to cover it up (big blob of foam filler). It is a good location if you want to visit the aquarium and there is a mall right next to it. We ended going to carrefour in the mall and buying a cooler and then bought ice every morning and evening so we could have a cold drink. I mean really no ice machine or fridge – this pace gives the IHG brand a bad name. The owner isn’t even trying. I’ve stayed at motels that were better and they even have ice machines. Shame on IHG for allowing this place to maintain the brand.

It's a very nice hotel; plain but modern and well looked-after. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are a reasonable size (i.e. not small but not big either), with nice bathroom, towels and toiletries.
The free breakfast has a good variety of breads, pastries, cold meat and cheeese, fruit etc. etc. There are no hot options (unless you use the sandwich toaster) but there's loads to eat to set you up for the day. The bar is available till very late.
And it's about an 8 minute walk to the City of Arts and Sciences, close to bus stops and the metro line into the city, and next to a large shopping mall.
Everything one might want.

Although located at the backside of a shopping centre, this hotel is very handy for the motorway and the shops/restaurants. The rooms are spacious and pleasantly appointed although the lobby and restaurant is a bit Spartan. Special thanks to Carmen who seemed to be running the hotel single handedly the afternoon we arrived. She was charming and nothing was too much trouble. She really made a difference especially as it was mid lockdown.

Great location for the Museums, next door to a shopping mall - some good restaurants for evening meal. On the L10 Metro line (which is actually more like a tram) and bus routes, easy walk to the museums and easy enough to get into the older parts of Valencia
Hotel staff excellent, always on hand if you needed a question answering, Breakfast usual european (no hot) buffett breakfast - enough to start your day.
Didn't use the pool - but its a Express with a pool ! very few of those.
Thankfully the air con in the room worked keeping you cooler in the late summer heat.
Hotel overall clean tidy and cannot beat the location.

My one issue ( and its all HIex really) get better bath towels its like thin no fluffy, almost sandpaper like some mornings. I know its no intercontinental but you can get much better towels even for an Express ! PLEASE !
