The Caro is in a great location, near the city centre, about a 5 minute walk from both the cathedral and Turia Park. It is quiet, being down a small side street. Beautifully crafted out of a medieval palace, in turn built on top of Roman and Arabic buildings. Traces of these have been cleverly incorporated into the hotel fabric. Most impressive is the massive Arab Wall which takes centre stage in the restaurant. Each if the original features and every room, has a QR code on the wall. Reading this on your smartphone brings up a video of the history of that room. No expense has been spared in the materials and construction and it shows.
The staff are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was excellent, if a little on the pricey side. Off the bar, there is a small terrace with a plunge pool and some of the rooms have private terraces. The bed and pillows were very comfortable.
Caro is what many other small city centre hotels should aspire to.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Caro Hotel is a five-star monument hotel located in the heart of the city of Valencia. An urban and commercially independent hotel, its 26 rooms, all unique in themselves, and gastronomic restaurant are fine examples of the singular and highly respectful integration of its contemporary interior design, characterised by clean, geometric lines, designed by Francesc Rifé, with the original historical, architectonic features of the building. Below the eclectic appearance of a nineteenth-century palace, the hotel walls stand guard over a legacy of more than 2,000 years of history, which includes an original mosaic belonging to the founding of Valencia in the Roman era (2nd century BC.), the thirteenth-century Arabic defensive wall, several gothic arches and nineteenth-century constructions which, together with its warm, friendly, client-focused service, make this establishment a high quality must for all travellers who wish to enjoy a memorable hotel experience from a different perspective. ... more less
