This hotel had everything we needed for an extended weekend in Valencia: nice rooms beautiful decorated, walking distance to the city centre and a nice restaurant with a great breakfast. The friendly and helpful hotel staff made the stay excellent.

Thanks a lot for your nice review of Caro Hotel. We are really happy to know you enjoyed your stay with us and we appreciate your kind words.

As you mentioned, we are located right in the heart of the city. The main tourist attractions are near the hotel and can be reached on foot. Additionally, the main shopping street (Colón) is just 10 minutes’ walk from the hotel.

We have just returned from a 3 night break in Valencia and stayed at this hotel - we were totally impressed by every aspect, from check in to departure we were very much looked after. The hotel is hidden away in a side street a few minutes walk from the Plaza de la Virigin, so completely peaceful at all times and away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but only a 5-10 minute walk into the old town. The room (24) was very well appointed with lovely bathroom and Bvlgari toiletries which along with the complementary minibar /snacks is a lovely touch. The hotel is easily walkable from the Estacion du Nord which is the main station in Valencia city and is about 5 mins further on from the Cathedral, so dont worry about taxis. We also took a trip to the beach area - the bus stop is 2mins from the hotel and Bus 1 takes you straight down to the beach (c. 30 min trip) for a few euros. I will definitely recommend this hotel, it's a great place and great staff, We will be coming back soon I hope!

Dear guest,

We are glad to hear you liked so much our hotel and your stay with us. As you said, our surroundings are really interesting. We are located right in the city center, the main Plaza de la Virgen and the Cathedral are maximum 5 minutes’ walk. Restaurants, bars and sunny terraces are also near the hotel in the district El Carmen. There you can enjoy a refreshing drink during the day or even a nice dinner.

From Caro hotel you can visit the city center on foot. Other interesting points from Valencia like the Science City of Calatrava or Arenas or Malvarrosa beach can be easily reached by bus.

We have 26 rooms and all of them are different. Minibar is daily refilled free of charge, as well as tea in the room. Regarding our amenities, those who book a stay can try Bulgari’s complete line of Eau Parfumée products, which is made with essential plant oils and silk proteins and fragranced with Italian bergamot and pepper.

We would love to welcome you again during your next visit to Valencia.

Sincerely,
Team Caro Hotel

From the welcome to the departure, It would be churlish of me to fault anything. The food, the decor the staff the free tea, the free mini bar but above all the decor and the location,truly memorable.

Dear guest,

We are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with your family at Caro Hotel.

Did you try our continental breakfast? Or our extended hot buffet breakfast with many local products? Either way, both are a great start of a new day in Valencia.

As you write, we are located at walking distance from the main highlights in the city, such as the cathedral and the main square, Plaza de la Virgen. The historical center of Valencia is very beautiful and full of history.

In the design of Caro hotel, location and history meet contemporary art. We are glad that you were able to appreciate the unique combination of old and new. Indeed, we usually provide our guests a small guide to be used with a QR application on your smartphone which explains with full detail a great number of issues about the hotel and its history. That is the way guests can experience the hotel as a kind of museum.

It will be our pleasure to welcome back you and your family again in your next visit to Valencia.
Kind regards,
Team Caro Hotel

Let's start with the location, within walking distance of the major sites in the historic district of Valencia. The staff was very attentive, the design truly cool by mixing the modern with the old and a good value, including a free mini bar and quality amenities in the bathroom. We would return any time.
Some people may not like the bathroom because of lack of privacy, there is no door separating the shower area from the rest of the room. The room floor is not carpeted. Don't trust the photos of the swimming pool, you really can't swim there.

Overall a nice finding

Dear Kubus I,

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Our hotel is the ideal starting point to discover Valencia, as almost all of the important sights are within walking distance of the hotel. There are many things to explore by just walking around and breathing the local atmosphere of the old town.

We are glad that you were able to enjoy our complimentary amenities in the room. In addition to the ones already mentioned, we also have a tea menu, so we serve tea in the room 24 hours a day for free. The layout of our rooms is quite different to other hotels, indeed it is a very open concept. This is quite clear by just having a look to our website. Despite working hard to be a hotel for everyone, sometimes that is just not possible due to the very particular features of Caro Hotel. We completely understand the issue you point out and are aware of the inconveniences this might have.

Regarding our pool, you are definitely able to have a little swim. It is just not quite a swimming pool but a splash pool, as you might imagine. However, it is a great addition to our terrace and of course to the hotel, especially because there are no other pools in the city centre.

We do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back soon.

Best regards,
Team Caro Hotel

We just spent three nights at Caro Hotel and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is lovely, and includes preserved Roman ruins. The staff were very helpful and responsive. The hotel is in the old part of the city and the room generally was quiet. Breakfast costs extra but they have a nice feature of offering two options-continental and the full buffet. The quality of the breakfast was outstanding, much better than you get at most hotels now. Only downside was that the lighting in the room was weak and made it hard to read at night. Also there was a raised long piece of wood by the wall which you had to be careful not to bump into at night if you had to go to the bathroom. Overall, we recommend this hotel highly.

Dear guests,

First of all, thank you very much for choosing Caro Hotel and for the time to write about your wonderful experience in our hotel.

As you pointed out, the Hotel is the former Palace of the Marquis of Caro, it has a gothic-medieval background with a perfect blend of modern style fittings and the old architecture of the Palace. We are located in the center of Valencia, in a really quite area, and just some minutes walking from the main highlights of the city.

We are pleased to read that our service made your stay even more memorable. We enjoy doing our best to make all the guests feel special.

Regarding the breakfast, in our Restaurant Alma del Temple we provide a delicious breakfast made of fresh, home-made and high quality products. We are aware how important a good breakfast is to make the most of the day.

The lights in the rooms fit the special design and structure of the hotel. Anyway, in each room there is a night lamp which helps to read in bed.

We will be very grateful to welcome you again in your next visit to Valencia.

Best regards,
Team Caro Hotel.

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
