SH Ingles
Ranked #57 of 98 Hotels in Valencia
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This boutique hotel in the heart of Valencia served all our needs. This 3 star hotel (I would allocate them 4 star) had spacious, clean, air conditioned rooms with TV and refrigerator. The bathroom was large, with tub and shower. The hotel is located next to the Ceramics Museum (worth a wonderful two hour visit). Initially, I had requested a room overlooking the museum. However, as we were staying for four evenings, we asked to be switched to a larger room overlooking the street. They were most gracious and helped move our belongings. Best to ask for a room on the higher levels - this will eliminate any chance of noise from the street. As with most hotels in Spain, the breakfast is very expensive, especially when there are many coffee shops that offer a breakfast or tapas at a nominal price. Within walking distance there is La Plaza de la Reina. This is a popular spot with many small restaurants where we had breakfast daily.
Valencia is a lovely city to visit. It is only 1.5 hours from Madrid using their comfortable and clean high speed trains - ours clocked at 300mph - I have a photo to prove it!

Room Tip: Request room on higher floors. There is a main staircase (quite lovely) and also an elevator. Ask f...

We chose the hotel because of its location and where not disappointed about that at all , in fact Valencia is such a cool city and I would go back there rather than say Barcelona after our stay.

Any way back to the hotel , breakfast is OK but if your down after 9.30 there can be a bit of a lack of choice.

Check in and check out where fine.

The little terrace for drinks is great however they can close before midnight some nights and depending on the staff member serving you it can be bloody good or so bad that we left the drink.
Which was a shame as the location is great.

The gin bar is great and service always great in fact its bloody great.

The room was clean with a nice big bed but the bathroom was at best tired to be polite. Towels where good as where the tolietres.

Basicaly we would go back , we did not ask to move room as we where told they where full when we checked in.

We stayed five nights. So this was not just comments for one or two nights and I think they are fair.

Room Tip: If you get R319 ask if the bathroom has been refurbed

On a Motorcycle Holiday touring Spain with my wife we had a brilliant stay at the SH Ingles in Valencia. We got an absolute bargain through Booking.com paying 50 Euro for the one night. The whole experience was first class. A superb Hotel in a perfect location. We both loved Valencia. We didn't eat at the Hotel mainly because of comments on previous reviews on Trip Adviser.

Superb accommodation, views from balcony of the ceramic museum next door are to die for and brilliant to wake up to. Very nice hotel to base yourself from and only 5 minutes walk from colón metro station.

An Hotel Ingles has been in that location of Valencia for more than a century. A great location, indeed, just in front of the Palacio del Marqués de Dos Aguas, with its elaborate alabaster portal you can appreciate from your breakfast table; two minutes from the Cathedral; and ten from the Metro station of Colon.

Rooms are large, tastefully furnished, with beautiful parquet floors.

So what's the problem with this SH Ingles? The many small (and not so small) defects which add to lower the score. First and foremost, the quality of the sleep. The mattress of my room was old (a bit sagged in the middle), and too soft. Soundproofing towards the main street could be improved (buses run also late, and very early in the morning).

Then, in no particular order:

- The first of the two nights I had teared bedsheets (real little holes in the middle); I asked for a change, which of course was done.

- At night, in the lobby we could distinctively smell sewer stink.

- Wifi, good during the day, becomes very erratic at evening, when the number of users increases.

- No power outlets near the working table in the bedroom.

- We booked their meeting room for the afternoon. Only one power outlet was available near the table (for ten people), making difficult the managing of laptops, smartphones etc.
A waiter had to come and cross the room several times, because he needed to enter a storage room whose entrance is located inside the meeting room.

- Breakfast (13.5 Euros rack price) is ordinary--no warm dish, no real coffee (a Nescafé machine).

We recently spent 4 nights here. The hotel has a great location (right across from the Museum Ceramica) and close to all the sights. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was "passable" but nothing special. The staff serving breakfast did their best to provide clean tables and resupplying the dishes as needed. WiFi worked except that you needed a new password every day......

For the price, it is a good value.

Loved the location of this hotel: close to a great shopping district, restaurants and Plaza De la Reina. Very helpful staff. Cleanliness average. Great desserts but dine here only if desperate. Free wifi but usual "European Excuses" if connection weak.

Room Tip: Avoid corner rooms if interested in better wifi and bigger rooms.
