“Do not take this if you wish to sleep”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Stayed there for a week in June, two adults with a baby. Unfortunately there were extremely noisy people in other apartments, having parties until the morning. There is no sound isolation in the apartments, so we had to listen to the partying. During the day, there was renovation going on in the apartment next to ours.
We had to sign the house regulations, telling to respect other people; evidently everybody had signed the same. The personnel is not there after 10pm, and they did not want to do anything! They just want to "be nice to people". Evidently, we were not the only ones suffering from the noise, as other residents tried to protest the noise by hitting on walls. Normal living noise is understandable, but this was something far beyond. Our reclamations have not been respected, nor any compensation paid. Not even apologies. Betrayed!

Although we had a very stressful start to our stay, the apartment was lovely, clean and our stay was enjoyable.
We warned the staff twice by email that we required late check in, which stated was available but when we arrived the building was closed and we couldn't get in. We had to ask a lovely member of staff at Dominoes next door to ring the manager to let us in. This member of staff was the only one that wasn't pleasant or helpful during our stay, the others helped on a few occasions and greeted us each time we came in.

We enjoyed our stay in spite of some noisy drilling and thin walls as it was relatively central, close to the metro, a large shopping centre and beautiful park.

Spent 5 nights at Pio XII apartments. Super clean and comfortable apartment with great A/C and a washing machine. The location is central but not in the tourist zone. There's a Corte Inglés across the street with a good supermarket. The metro is across the street (although I only used to go to the train station) and there are lots of restaurants and a movie theater close by. If you like to run/walk, there's an awesome park across the street as well. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed just one night but wished had stayed longer. The apartment was spotless, just like New, just missing a kettle! Manager was extremely helpful and informative. He let us check-in early and gave us maps and directions. Would highly recommend.

Apartmants are on a good location , right next to Turia metro station. 15 minutes walk to the old town. You have also bus No.1 stop which takes you towards Playa Marvelosa and the beach.
Apartments are big, clean, with A/C. WI-FI internet free of charge. Perfect choise for a family break. Many restaurants nearby as also a huge supermarket right opposite the apartments.
The only down side is a noise from a street. Higher the floor is less noise you get ( we were on 4th floor and it was not so noisy ).

Room Tip: Please choose higher floor to reduce noise from the street

We stayed for more than two weeks (March 2014) in this apartment hotel and the kind and helpful staff made their best to have a pleasant long stay. Before anything else, we should thank Serjio, one the very gentle and caring staff who helped us a lot with his fluent English which is an important issue in Spain. Here are positive and negative points about this apartment hotel:
First positives:
• It is close to a large shopping mall (just cross the street)
• 5 mins walking distance to metro station
• 15-20 mins walking distance to the city center (there is a bus station just in front of the hotel that takes you to the city center with only 1.5 Euros a ticket)
• Having all home utilities available (oven, microwave, electrical kettle, well enough cooking instruments, cloths washing machine, steam iron and ironing board, hair dryer and all cleaning tools) make you feel at home. Especially, the washing machine for our long stay was so valuable.
• Kind English speaking staff
• Quite new and modern furniture
• Pretty good size apartment and balcony
• The apartment was cleaned and bed sheets (and towels) were replaced every 4 days.

Negatives:
• No having telephone line at rooms
• No Safe box
• No chairs at balcony
• Some noisy days due to the renovation going on fairly in all the floors. Reminding you of the “Faulty Towers” series in BBC.
• The shower cabin was small
We made a mistake and changed our reservation after the deadline that could end in us losing the prepayment on the credit card provided during the reservation. It was scary and we contacted the reservation website and they said it is upto the hotel. Serjio was kind enough to let us know that the initial reservation was still valid and he gave us peace of mind at midnight local time. They also helped us with the correction on the reservation as we were planning to go to Barcelona for a 3 days visit and they even let us leave our suitcases in the building and travel light without any charges.
We would like to thank the management and all the staff for their friendliness and the comfortable stay they provided for us.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that are not facing the main street to avoid the traffic sound.

Pio XII is a great vale for money, and very comfortable. A nice, clean, well furnished apartment, even came with a laundry machine so we saved a few euros there. Lots of space, a nice sitting room and dining table area, and then a self-contained bedroom with a comfy double bed. We had a smaller apartment but it was perfect for the two of us. Great bathroom with some storage space and nice new fixtures.

Excellent service from the guy at the front desk - he even found us some laundry soap and helped with some advice about the city.

Location is okay. Not right in the action, but definitely quieter because of that. You can take the metro into town or enjoy a nice 20 minute walk there. We lucked out and found a parking spot out front, and there's parking across the street at the department store too, apparently.

We would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on an upper floor (there's an elevator) and at the back of the building to av...
