I have stayed in this hotel for a week in October 2011. From my point of view, it was an ok hotel. However, I asked specifically for a non-smoking room and got a room with an ash tray. Nevertheless, the cigarette smell was not noticeable.
There are no problems with the internet, you have to ask at the reception to get access and you can easily use wireless. The internet is very slow though in peak hours.
The hotel is located close to the university campus (both University and Polytechnic), so it may be an option for students arriving to Valencia and looking for a more permanent place to stay. Also, there are bars and shops (Mercadona) nearby. The metro station is a bit far, but you can walk to the tram and change to the metro then at Benimaclet.
The rooms were decent, but nothing extraordinary: just a tv, empty minibar (I never use it, so I didn't bother), two beds and thick drapes on the windows. The room itself was quite dark as the lamps gave too little light. The bathroom was okay though. Also, the rooms were clean, but I was not concerned about that a lot. There is also a very slow and small elevator.
The staff were friendly, but keep in mind that you have to pay for the breakfast (it's only a Spanish sweet breakfast) - I was not informed about it. The breakfast itself is a typical Spanish breakfast, I would not recommend it if you are used to "heavier" breakfasts.
In general, I would recommend this hotel mainly because of the price and the location close to the University. It happened that I had some business there so it was very convenient as I could just walk to work. Otherwise, you may be better off by finding a more centrally located hotel - it's really far from this one to the city centre.
