“Typical 3-star hotel, nothing more”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

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.

After reading the reviews, I didn't have very high expectations. However, I was pleasantly surprised by its location ( right at the center of the city ) and the room. The room was clean and staff were very nice. They provided us all the info we needed and even kept our luggage for an extra day. I was pretty satisfied with this hotel and would recommend it. Only negative point is that we had to pay additional 3 euros/day for the wifi.

After having read some of the reviews I did not have very high expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. The room I got (#104) was big. The bathroom looked like it had recently been upgraded (none of the showercurtain problems that were in some of the other reviews). Internet access is a bit peculiar, as you pay € 3,50 a day for a package that includes movies and internet, the latter only through the Linux terminal that is in your room. So you cannot use your own laptop. Apart from that, it works fine for checking your e-mail or surfing the web, as long as you don't try anything fancy like watch a video. My room was at the streetside, but the traffic noise didn't bother me. I guess that depends on how sensitive you are to that kind of thing.

A downside of the hotel is the location. It is not really close to anything except the universities and the football stadium. Anything else (beach, old town, Calatrava complex) is about half an hour's walk away. That didn't bother me and if it does you can make use of the excellent public transport.

Breakfast was fine, considering it was included. There was fresh bread and fresh coffee every morning and that's about all I require. Don't expect bacon & eggs or fruit salads.

As mentioned by other reviewers, the hotel has a very attractive cafetaria/restaurant. They have an excellent menu del dia for € 13, which attracted a lot of locals not staying at the hotel, which I suppose is a good sign.

I was put here by colleagues at Univ. of Valencia, for which location was excellent. Room was adequate (the comment about the bathtub was true, but I find that European bathtub/showers are frequently difficult to use without spraying water all over -- definitely a skill Americans like me need to learn!). I didn't notice street noise, but some of my colleagues did -- it was bad enough that they moved rooms. Service was quick and helpful -- one day, my laundry didn't reappear, and a maid interpreted my horrible Spanish and figured out how to track it down. Turned out the iron was broken and they had been waiting to get it fixed. Main problem was Internet. They provide a strange TV/Internet combination with keyboard and mouse, and it was quite slow. The only wifi in the room was weak and expensive, so I didn't use my laptop. Breakfast was pretty bad -- cellophane-wrapped donuts, white bread only, pretty sad-looking meat. I stuck with cereal, and even then there were only a couple of choices.

The staff at the front desk were not friendly. The rooms were not very clean, and the location was a 30 min. walk from the old town. The breakfast was mostly packaged food, but the cafe con leche at breakfast was good and unlimited. Overall, I would not recommend this hotel.

We stayed here as part of a Topdeck tour for La Tomatina.

The room was pleasant and clean, as was the foyer.

We didnt eat in the restaurant, we only had the breakfast which was very average, warm milk (which seems to be standard in Spain), off-smelling eggs etc.

It is a bit of a walk to the closest metro stations, Facultat was the closest and this takes you to the main parts of town.

There was a pub in the road next to the hotel which served three small beers for a euro which is a nice saving after expensive drinks and meals elsewhere.
