I stayed there in Nov. 2013 because I was running the marathon, and the hotel was perfect. Right in front of the start and the finish line. Other guests will also enjoy the large and convenient rooms and bathrooms (with a seperate toilet) and the wonderful spa. Too bad the 270° was closed in November though the weather was acceptable. The restaurant was very good, though the decoration was a bit "cold". Some work for a serious decorator.

From arriving outside to departing in the small hour of the morning, could not fault anything. Staff at reception friendly, professional and genuine. Location just wonderful (need a bar open on the outside terrace to get full benefits of the great location), room very comfortable and liked the modern even quirkiness of design

Room Tip: If you an get a room facing the park all the better

Barcelo Valencia is at a good location from where followign the green belt its easy to get to the ancient city center as well as to the beach front in the opposite direction. A spacy roof terrace on the top next to little pool area and gym offers scenic view at the modern City of Arts. The on-site bar has extended tables on the street in front of the hotel. eBikes are available for rental.

Room Tip: An upgrade to get the view of the museums is worth considering

Description at Booking.com stated airport shuttle (surcharge), free wi-fi, spa with sauna and hammam.

In fact there was no shuttle.
In fact free wi-fi required a ticket from reception and extremely slow. Anything faster was called 'premium' and was at extra charge.
In fact sauna and hammam was 15 euros per 1 hr for hotel guests and required booking to be made several days in advance.
When I needed to pring a boarding pass it turned out that 'internet corner' in not provided with printer.

The room and bathroom were nice, but Valencia is not an expensive place and accommodation of this type could be found at much lower price.

Tea/coffee making facility in the room would be helpful -- I believe this not too much for a 4* hotel.

Nice and modern, clean rooms, great bathroom. Parking is a bit of a challenge as the receptionists don't seem to know how to handle the ticketing system, but we managed to resolve this on day 2.
Great location, there is a bus which takes you to the old town in a few minutes time directly in front of the hotel.
The rooms can be quite noisy as not all the double-glazed windows close properly, but we are quite sensitive and it might not bother you if you are not a light sleeper.

Right from the moment I arrived I knew it was a mistake. There is no place to park in front of the hotel for drop off pick up so we went to the garage which needed a complicated equation to get in and out. During check in the staff was careless and indifferent when I asked if someone can help us with our luggage the answer was no although they were attending to the luggage of a group of tourists arriving by bus at the same time. The rooms are quirky in a bad way, the bathroom is part of the room and the glass door is see through!!!! I wonder how they got away with it all this time. The breakfast staff was one person who was overwhelmed and dismissive. When checking out the card for opening the garage door didn't work I had to go to the front desk three times to make them open the door and they were not helpful at all. If I had a choice between sleeping in my car and staying in this hotel next time I would without doubt sleep in my car!
