“it was ok”
Reviewed 21 March 2011

The hotel was ok overall. The room was clean and big enough. The only problem with the room was that the windows were not very well insulated so you could hear the street noise as the window was opened.
The subway station is 10 min of walking, but the bus stops exactly at the hotel and takes you in the old center.
A minus is the hotel restaurant were the food is not too great. We ate there in our first evening and the paella was the worst I had in Valencia and they say in the menu that the ratio is for too but they don't mention that the price is for each person so we had to pay double.
Also the staff was not to prepared to offer info for tourists it was like they lived in another city...

The hotel located not in the central part of the city, but you can use public transport to go to the city center or to the beach. There's the bus stop near the hotel entrance and the metro station (underground can take also to the airport) is ~10 min. walking from the hotel. A couple of malls and one of the main sightseeings in Valencia - the Oceanographic museum are ~15 min. walking from the hotel. Breakfast was very good and waitresses were helpful. Room was big with king size bed. Bathroom was upgraded and spacious. We were very pleased with immaculate cleaning of the room during all 7 days of our stay in the hotel. The staff of the hotel was polite and helpful. We've booked the hotel because of the good deal, but the value we've received was more than expected.

Nice and charm hotel, conveniently located near the Arts and Science Park. Although it's not central (off Puerto Avenue), there's a bus stop right on the corner that takes you to the Plaza Ayuntamiento.
Excellent hotel, big rooms, comfortable, toilet room full of amenities, excellent staff at the reception and at the bar. The hotel has a bar and a restaurant. We didn't eat at the restaurant but had a lovely sandwich at the bar. The staff there was really helpful. They have many types of sandwiches, which is a nice way to have dinner when you come back tired from the centre.
My rating: 10 out of 10.

The location gets a bad reputation but actually it is perfectly placed between the beach/port area and the city center (30-40 minute walks). It is very close to the Turia riverbed and the City of Arts and Sciences (10-15 minute walk). It was also conveniently located near the Ayora metro stop. After being in Valencia for over a week I was definitely glad to have stayed in this area. This may be a biased opinion based on the fact that I love to walk around a city a lot when traveling.

The room was nice, the bathroom was nicer. The breakfast was good albeit a little pricier than expected. The staff was usually very friendly and helpful.

The only complaint I would have is that the ceiling in our room sprung a leak one evening during a large thunderstorm. We did not say anything about it until the next day and though it did not rain hard again it didn't seem like anything was done in the room about the leak. Luckily nothing was ruined or damaged. Except maybe a part of their ceiling.

The Abba Acteon hotel was included in our tour, and probably the best hotel during our trip to Spain. Rooms are modern and spacious, with large marble lined bath and a tub large enough to stand for a shower. Comfortable beds, lounge chairs, and room layout. Washcloth available at the bidet. Energy conserving motion sensors light corridors, and room key is required to activate electric in the room. Tip: when leaving room, turn out all the lights and leave one key to maintain air-conditioning active.
