“Good central hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

This hotel is within 5 minutes walk of the Valencia Nord railway station and a few minutes from the centre of the old city. The hotel is within the old city itself bit located just off the main streets so quiet at night. The accommodation was certainly its three stars and more verging on four stars. The staff were all very helpful and smartly dressed. Would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a good central location. The rooms were very comfortable with plenty of room for a city hotel.

Comfortable room in pleasant hotel, centrally located. I had made a "no change" booking but needed to change my nights because RENFE could not book me a seat on the overnight train from Lisbon to Madrid. Although the hotel had no obligation to alter my booking, they did so.
I did not eat at the hotel (late riser and early luncher) but a couple of fellow guests said that the breakfast was very good.
Good selection of TV channels: I was able to watch Arsenal v West Ham, something which would not have been possible in an hotel in the UK.
Highly recommended.

The hotel is located in the centre of Valencia with easy access to all the interesting spots within the city and on good walking distance of the various museums. Go behind the cathedral and you will find real Valencia with good restaurants and nice bars.

We stayed over at this hotel and found it to be a real nice clean and tidy hotel. The staff were friendly and were very helpful. The night we stayed happened to be the night of the "le cup del rey" between Barcelona and Real Madrid. The credit to the city is that it is big enough to hold this event and you would Think there was nothing on.
I would definately choose this. Hotel again.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

We stayed in October last year for one night. The location was perfect, right in the centre of the city, but on quiet street. The decor of the reception area is more contemporary than the rooms. It was very clean throughout, the the rooms were a good size, with decent bathrooms. However the walls are thin, so soundproofing is an issue. We had a group of children next door, who were very excited and loud! However reception dealt with the matter swiftly. Good for a night or two, but not the most swish of hotels.

This is a very good small hotel in an excellent location. The staff are friendly and professional. We had a 'premium room with terrace' - number 604. It was a good size with a large bathroom and beautiful terrace. Breakfast was very good. We had no complaints about this hotel and will book here again should we ever return to Valencia. For less than 100 euros (room and breakfast) it was excellent value.
