Hotel Albufera
Ranked #72 of 98 Hotels in Valencia
Reviewed 29 December 2012

The hotel rating should be (3.5 stars) good,rather than 4 stars,very good..Not the highest quality Best Western but still better than most Spanish hotels..Large comfortable rooms,big window and satellite TV..Excellent internet on some floors (but not all) It is well outside Valencia,but a great place to stay for a day or 2 to get rested..Staff spoke English and were polite.Poor water pressure in shower and no bath gel provided.Water warm though not hot..However l do like this North Europe style type of accommodation with less granite flooring and more soft wood and carpet to dull any noise..l found the hotel to be very clean,though like elsewhere the cleaners never actually air the rooms by opening windows

Room Tip: 5th floor as the internet modem so signal strongest on that floor

This is a hotel in an area with about four shopping malls and a bunch of restaurants. The brochures says it's in a "unique" area--I'll agree with that. It's like being in the states or something. The brochure also says it's about five minutes from the beach--maybe if you're traveling by rocket.
Wifi is free, but unfortunately almost unusable unless you're sitting in the lobby. If you need the internet for work don't plan on using it here; you'll have to go to McDonald's down the street. On the good side, there is a bus that goes to downtown Valencia that runs every hour and takes about 30 minutes to get to the center. The hotel does have underground parking free of charge and breakfast is reasonably priced and decent. There are several places to eat nearby and a pizza place right outside. Overall, the price is reasonable and it IS convenient, but if you're looking to experience Valencia look closer to town.

Room Tip: If you need Wifi, 1st and 2nd floors are a no-go.

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel which we stayed at for a week before la tomatina. Great deals can be found with this hotel making it similar in price to hostels, except it includes a buffet breakfast, pool, gym, sauna, terrace and very clean rooms with rather luxurious bathrooms!

As mentioned before, its a bit far out in the commercial centre but buses are hourly and a taxi will only cost around 12 euros to get from here to city centre/coach station/beach each way. As we were on a budget, the carrefour was great being just around the corner as we could make packed lunches and make predrinks which helped to save us money!

Would definitely come back here!

We traveled to Valencia on route to Madrid and Hotel Albufera was a lucky choice for us. It's location was splendid as it's just on the outskirts of the city. The staff were all most helpful the hotel is very clean, with a lovely open pool and deck on the 3rd or 4th floor. Located close to a good shopping court with some nice restaurants close by. This was a great find and I have no doubt we will return.

We got an excellent deal with BEST WESTERN Hotel Albufera in Valencia and stayed there for one one night on our way to Madrid. The hotel is good, not ideally placed, but we had a car so it wasn't a problem for us. It's placed in the commercial zone with many malls and supermarkets around. Rooms are good- not like some BW but very good for the price you pay. Breakfasty was very good and it was included in the price. There is a free parking outside the hotel. I saw that there is a pool outside but we didn't use it.

Stayed at this BW while visiting Valencia and found it convenient to spots we wanted to see. Hotel room was 50 euros and was clean, quiet, good size and with a refrigerator. The beds are comfortable although a bit hard as are most beds in Spain. Free WiFi in rooms. Breakfast 6 euros p/p was extra but convenient in the restaurant located next to lobby. There is a very good restaurant for dinner around the corner and supermarket is located one street away. There are fast food places at supermarket location.

Room Tip: Make sure you request non-smoking room if you are a non-smoker. Rooms on either side of hotel are qu...

Got an offer deal under 50€ per room with breakfast for two of us over Easter weekend this was excellent value. Check-in was prompt. Pre-requested a high floor non-smoking quiet room , this request was granted. Free WiFi was excellent and fast in both guest areas and rooms. Rooms are large well sound proofed with very good blackout curtains. A little tired around the edges in places as you would expect for a busy business hotel, but very clean, good firm comfy queen size bed and excellent powerful shower. All you need really! Staff were attentive and our request for 2 extra firm pillows was sorted whilst we were out for the day. Breakfast was perfectly adequate with an OK choice, nothing special but fine for a few days.

HOT TIPS:
At weekends and Fiestas breakfast is served until 11am. Restaurant is closed for evening meals at the weekend but there are plenty of places to eat with 5 minutes walk. La Tagliatella Italian, behind the Hotel is higly recommended, excellent food in smart surroundings about 25€ with Wine - Ask reception for directions. Chinese WOK behind hotel was a horrid experience as is the Foster´s Hollywood American Diner, Yuk.

Room Tip: Request "Planta Alta Por Favor" for a high floor room.
