Hotel Villacarlos
Ranked #54 of 98 Hotels in Valencia
Reviewed 5 September 2011

The previous reviews are fairly accurate. Small, mid-range hotel, set in a boring, residential neighborhood. Advantages are that it is walking distance to the City of Arts and Sciences, and several bus lines stop either in front of the hotel or behind it to take you to/from the historic center or the beach. Disadvantages include the lack of free Internet access, and small rooms without mini-bars. Price was reasonable, booked on the NH website.

Good value hotel, clean and friendly service. The room was spacious and well appointed. It is half way between the beach and the centre. Probably 25-30 minute walk in either direction which when it's hot is not ideal for either but you can always jump in a taxi one or both ways. The walk to the centre takes in the lovely Jardines del Turia and the old bridges so is a lovely evening stroll (we got taxis back though at the end of the night). If you want to go to a lovely City and stay in good value accommodation then I would recommend. If you would prefer to be in the heart of the City and avoid the long walk or taxi then stay more central. But no complaints as I knew this before I booked and overall was happy with my stay here for the price I paid.

Was there for a conference at the nearby SH Valencia Palace, which was a great 8 mins walk away. NH Villacarlos was a simple, no frills lodging though we thought it was slightly more expensive than it should be. The front desk staff were all very helpful although we had some problems communicating in English at times. The rooms were small and uninteresting, with the windows opening up to nothing much at all.

The street on which the hotel was on was not too bad; there was a self-service laundromat and supermarket just right across the road. Apart from that, the location of the hotel was rather quiet and away from the main sights.

Overall, it was a quiet, uneventful stay.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. Since we like to walk through the city, the location of the hotel is very good, because it allows you to go by foot to every part of the city. For instance, it is a 10min walk to the City of Arts and Science (wow... what an amazing spot!) and a 25-30min walk to the city historical centre (like the Mercado Central or Plaza de la Virgen). The room was clean, with a very big bathroom and a comfy bed. Recommended.

A really nice small hotel. Near to the city center & The City of Arts and Sciences. Metro stop is a bit of a walk, but still not too far & takes you strait to the airport. Hotel staff is nice and friendly, room was clean and quiet & quite new. Pluss I just loved their toiletries! Only minus is that they don't have free wi-fi

This is a nice hotel but not recommended for those who want to have quick access to the city center. It is not too far from the center, but after 1-2 days of walking you will end up using taxis. Btw the center is like 15-20 minutes of walking. I have been three times in Valencia and stayed also in the center. I believe you may find a better or the same quality hotel just in the center for almost the same money. In general it is an economical hotel. The breakfast is not anything special.

Hotel is located quite ok. Small, dark room. Parking complete on arrival. Staff was friendly, but the restaurant tipps weren't very helpful. Breakfast not included. Overpriced for the room we had.
