My husband and I spent our first two nights in Valencia at this hotel. We were extremely impressed with the modern design, cleanliness and comfort. The value for money is very high and I especially liked the bathroom which featured a bidet and fancy shower with excellent pressure and temperature. The wifi was fast and reliable and it was convenient to get here from the north train station - the 19 bus drops you off across the street from the hotel and only takes 10-15min.

The negatives to this hotel are few but worth mentioning:
- very thin walls - you can hear the traffic from the road as well as your neighbours and the cleaning staff (there is one that likes to whistle while cleaning and you can hear it perfectly)
- the doors on the hotel room are programmed to slam shut and it's VERY loud and happens frequently in the morning so not a good hotel for sleeping in (which is something we wanted to do given our jet lag)
- although the location next to the Science Center may be preferred for some, for us it was not a very lively area and for this reason we switched to a hotel in old town after the two nights.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

Barcelo Valencia has been a very pleasant surprise.

The hotel is located just in front of the city of arts and science.
Front office friendly and available; I appreciated the upgrade given to us for a room with a lovely view.

On the top floor there is an amazing view of the city, however it is a shame that the bar doesn't have attendand all the time, so it is quite neglected.

The treatment at the Spa were average.

Breakfast very good.

Excellent value for money!

I stayed in this hotel for three nights in May 2014 to attend a medical conference. The location of the hotel is nice and modern design looking at the museum of art and science. Rooms are wide and well areated and furnished with wide bathrooms. staff nice though difficult to communicate with them. no coffee makers in room and small Tv screen. Noise from adjacent school was somewhat disturbing during day time. View was poor from my room. food was reasonable and with good price. the problem of communication was difficult and it was impossible to ask for help from staff because of this.

The room was stylish, modern and very clean. We were impressed with the helpfulness of the member of staff on reception and he spoke English very well. Our room had amazing views as did the rooftop terrace, it was a shame the bar wasnt open during our stay or we'd have spent more time up there! But great location, we'd definitely stay again.

Great location close to the City of Arts and Sciences and close to the Turia gardens which was lovely to walk through. The hotel itself was very luxorious but very affordable, I really enjoyed my stay there.

Flew to Valencia and caught Metro train to the hotel. It is only a 5 min walk from the station.

Very good hotel. It is new so it was clean and smelt great. Ask for a room overlooking City of Arts and Sciences as our window view was stunning. We didn't bother with breakfast and went to a cafe called Glasol which is next to Barcelo about a minute walk. Very good cheap cafe.

Reception staff were very helpful, speak English and booked us an early morning taxi.

Location is a bit tricky. It is at least a 30 min walk to the old town and just as long to the beach. Make sure you use the no.19 bus to get into town. It leaves from outside the hotel and costs €1.50.

I recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a view of Arts and Sciences
