Set on a quiet street, the hotel is a short walk (about 500 meters) away from main historic area where you can get to all major must-see sites in about 10 minutes by foot. The decor is a mix of historic Valencia, modern hip, and thai resort (patio). The rooms are tastefully done and very clean (although the wall mounted LCD TV is a bit small at 17"). The rooms aren't that big either. On arrival, the doorman offered to park my car but didn't mention that overnight parking would cost 26 Euros (which I later found out at the front desk during check in). I read this someone on another reviewer's comment so it looks like this is something that happens regularly at this hotel. Just be sure to ask. I came on a holiday so street parking is free - so I just took the car back out and parked it right out front.
Check-in was relatively smooth, and our suitcases had already been delivered to our room by the time we were handed our keys. A welcome drinks was also offered to us - (orange juice or water) was also nice. Free wifi internet is a plus! Service is problem-free and efficient (although I suspect the hotel could do even better if they hired one more person to handle the concierge services) but front desk staff could smile a bit more. :-)
The gym only has 2 treadmills and 2 bicycles so if you need a real gym, this hotel won't do for you.
Overall, my wife and I were quite satisfied with our stay. Note that we are quite happy to go about our business ourselves. All we look for is a convenient location, cleanliness, modern and chic architecture, and professional no-nonsense service.
