Hotel Marina Atarazanas
Ranked #92 of 98 Hotels in Valencia
Reviewed 31 July 2013

This is a nice hotel. The staff are really friendly and very helpful (and speak good English), the rooms are modern and clean. I liked that the hotel was in a bit of a quieter area, it's in the business district about 15 minutes walk to the beach and main restaurant strip. Very good for the price. The walk to the ferry port is about 20 mins so I recommend a taxi if you have lots of luggage. The only suggestion for the hotel is to get some cooling on the top floor, the gym gets so hot during the day is it unusable.

This hotel was very close to the beach and within walking distance (but close is a bit of a reach) to the City of Arts and Sciences. As many other people reported, there is a close metro stop about a five minute walk from the hotel; the only thing is the metro goes above ground for this stop and when you go to the city center, it brings you back underground and you have to make a transfer on the next stop over. We usually ended up just walking another five minutes to the next metro stop to avoid the wait for the metro and forget about the transfer. And, although it does bring you into the city center, it's still a short hike for the Old City.

There was a nice plaza by the hotel and there were plenty of good restaurants nearby. You could tell this part of town had soul, it was just not as vibrant as was expected in Spain. I'm guessing the location is the number one reason this hotel is such a bargain for a 4 star hotel.

Other than the distance that had to be traveled, we really enjoyed our stay in the hotel. Reception was welcoming and friendly. The rooms were very well kept and had excellent accommodations. The hallway reeked of smoke and you could hear when people came in late at night, but the mattresses were comfortable and we had no trouble sleeping.

If you want a location with easy access to the historic center or to feel just how vibrant Valencia can be, I'd keep searching; if you don't mind the hike or just want to hang out at the waterfront, this hotel is money well spent and I wouldn't mind staying again.

Expected better from a 4 star. Staff was very friendly, but room smelled like smoke on non smoking floor. Requested a double bed for myself and girlfriend but only 2 twin bed rooms were available. Beds were very uncomfortable as well. Breakfast was poor, and did not try dinner because there was no menu and restaurant manager did not speak clearly enough to explain the choices. Bars in lobby and rooftop were never open. Location close to beach and restaurants as well as City of Science and Arts which was nice. Good wifi, bathroom just okay (impossible to keep water from spilling due to small glass covering). Air conditioning works well. For price I am not complaining but feel that the star rating is misleading.

I chose this four star hotel as it purported to be close to both the beach and the fabulous ciutat de les arts I de les ciencies area. The public transport system is fabulous so reaching the city center is no problem. The problem lies with the area being very quiet both during the day and at night, so it feels very unsafe to walk around alone. Secondly whilst the staff are really lovely they have nothing to work with. The blinds don't open, the spa bath needed a really good scrub and the public areas are completely souless. There is no bar and to get a coffee from the cafe someone had to be called from another area. When I arrived there were four drunks in the square that were arguing ferociously from lunchtime to sunset. All in all very depressing. And to cap it off even though I only stayed one night out of four I was charged for the four nights as that is their cancellation policy. Lastminute.com who i booked through were of no assistance whatsoever btw. am now at hotel Palau de la mar and it is another far better world which I can highly recommend.

We stayed in the hotels 10 nights in august 2012.
The team is really great, very friendly, always trying to satisfy us, I really appreciate Sarah, the girl at the reception.
About the rooms, they are correct, each day they cleans the room, if you don't want to be disturbed just fix it on the door.
On the roof it's more a Jaccuzy but not a pool, was perfect.
The breakfast is correct also, if it miss something do not hesitate to ask for the personal.
It's really near from the beach, 10 minutes walking ... and 20 or 30 minutes walking the Ciudad de la Sciencias.
The unique negative point was internet, in the beginning it was working well, but during few days it was impossible to be connected. You'll find a cyber coffee near from the hotel.
About the car, you'll find easily places in the street and they are free and no need to turn around a lot to find them.
We spend good times in this hotel, it was my 2nd trip.

Good sized room, friendly staff. Value for money. Rooms could have been a bit cleaner. Easy to get into city by bus. Lots of nice restaurants along the beach. Arts & science museum closeby. Valencia food market worth a visit.
