Last year, I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express on Epsom Downs. Not only was it VERY expensive but I was forced to complain about the awful breakfast.
I was, therefore, a little reluctant to stay in one of these places again. However, I needn't have worried as this hotel could not be faulted in any way. The price was reasonable and included free parking, it was within walking distance of the city centre, it was close to the museums and a commercial centre with lots of bars & restaurants.
The hotel itself was spotlessly clean, the service excellent and the breakfast superb.
Should I ever re-visit Valencia, I won't bother looking at any other hotel. I'll go straight to this one.
The only problem I had here was the continuous banging of doors, seemingly all night long. Not a fault of the hotel of course but of other guests. When will someone invent a silently closing door especially for hotels?
