“3 Day Trip - Value Hotel - Top Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

The Aqua 3 is a modern unpretentious hotel located east of Valencia city centre. It is ideally situated for visits to the Oceanography, the Palace of Arts, the Palace of Music, the Science Centre, the Laser IMAX Cinema and the glorious Turia Gardens all of which are a short 10 minute walk away.
The air conditioned rooms and en-suite bathrooms are relatively small and are designed for sleeping and ablutions only. We have returned here 3 times in the last 3 years and each time have found the hotel and rooms scrupulously clean. The beds were comfortable and the bed linen was changed daily and the bathroom towels as necessary.
There is free wi-fi and computer access in the hotel lobby and a re-charge point in the rooms.
Public car parking is available in the adjacent C/L Garcia Berlinga underground car park at about 20 euro per day. A discount is available to hotel guests so be sure to ask for your car park discount card at the hotel reception when leaving - we saved 33% on the day parking rate.
Safe boxes are not automatically provided in the rooms but we e-mailed 3 days ahead of our visit and a box suitable for car documents, passports and personal items was installed in our room at no extra cost.
Tea/coffee making facilities are not provided in the rooms; drinks are available in the hotel coffee shop.
The hotel staff are extremely polite, friendly and knowledgeable about things to do and places to see in Valencia and are keen to help you.
The hotel provides a buffet breakfast (c10 euro) and evening meals (c16 euro). Having said that we ate out mainly at Neco - buffet Spanish style, Cafe Jamaica -continental breakfast and La Tagliatella - excellent Italian food for dinner ; all establishments are located in the adjacent shopping mall.
If you want to travel further afield in Valencia then you can hire a taxi from outside Cortes d'ingles closeby in Calle Menorca (c 9 euro to the city centre), or jump on the open top tourist bus on the east side of Calle Menorca or best of all - regain your youth by hiring a bicycle from the hotel and cycle the length and breadth of the Turia Gardens. If this 60 year old can do it, so can you. It's as flat as a pancake. Go on - you might even enjoy it !!!.

I personally would not choose such an hotel for my holidays, but I'd rather do for business instead. Good location in the modern area of Valencia. All very clean, comfortable accomodations ( even if I would suggest to put some blackout curtains not to be flashed in the morning light ! ), excellent wi-fi connection and good breakfast. Very friendly staff at the reception. Convenient meeting rooms are provided for business purposes. Very fair prices indeed for the accomodation. Moreover I had the chance to enjoy a business lunch at the hotel. Well for the crazy price of € 16,00 I could enjoy excellent food with a wide choice of dishes too !

Me and my friend booked a last minute giddy and didn't know what to expect from valencia in general. The hotel is no more than 15minutes from the airport. We were taken aback instantly as it was very clean area but also so close to the main science museum attractions.

When checking in, they were very helpful, provided a map of valencia and told us what not to miss. There was also free wifi available always.

The rooms were very basic and cleaned everyday. No problems at all.

The shopping centre is a floor down from the hotel reception and is open until 10pm, Sunday 9pm. Lots of restaurants to chose from.

The old town is literally a 10-15minute bus ride, costs 1euro50 and the bus stop is a 2 minute walk. You will need to get the number 19, from opposite side of the road. Must do the tour buses as it takes you everywhere! Also if you want to go to the beach, it is 10-15mins max from the hotel, you again the stop is a 2minute walk, just jump on the number 1.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, family or young couples/friends looking for a safe but scenic place to stay. Enjoy x

Spending the weekend in Valencia with family an friends, we decided to stay I this hotel. Price was great. Rooms clean and friendly staff.
It is situated very close to the "Ciudad de las ciencias", with a mall just next to the hotel. We paid 39 euros for the room!!
It offers great Internet service.
Breakfast and parking not included.

I stayed at this hotel when attending a business convention and the hotel was arranged by the organisers. The hotel provides basic, no frills accommodation but was convenient for our meetings. The room was OK but rather small and spartan. There was an air conditioning control but it served no purpose. I didn't watch the TV but had I done so I would have required binoculars, or a telescope, as it was very small.

On the positive side the hotel is reasonably well located. The staff are friendly and helpful. Another plus, you get free WIFI.

everything was ok during our stay, but the hotel has nothing special.
the TV in the room is very very small!
the room is big enough.
the bathroom's door is not that smart and was a little broken. Few water in the shower. Breakfast ok.
Very near to El Corte Ingles and Ciudad de las Arts, but little far from city center.
No metro! Only bus or taxi.
the hotel is together with a mall with a cinema and options to eat, what's useful!

We stayed for 1 night pertly because of location which was fine for the new arts and science area, a bit far from the old town, around a 20 minute walk.
The hotel is listed on Trip advisor as having free parking..........it has NO PARKING at all of it's own, the public car park nearby was 20 euros for 1 night.
The curtains were really voiles which was fine in the darker months but in summer with light mornings it would be impossible.
The light fitting by the bed was broken.
Access to the hotel is by a series of lifts which is inconvenient with luggage. We had to use 3 lifts to get to our room from the public carpark under the building which also houses a shopping centre. Once in the car park there was no notice as to the best area to use for the hotel and we emerged initially into the shopping centre. We walked along towards the hotel and took a lift as far as we could then had to use stairs to get to the reception and then another lift to the room. When we tried to retrace our steps the next morning to get back to the car we found the shopping centre was still closed and the lift we had used was not operational. We took a different lift from the hotel plaza area down but could not get to the correct floor from that lift. There was no signage in the carpark and it took some time to find the car. Then we couldn't find a pay station, there wasn't one by the exit so we drove round inside the car park for some time to find somewhere to pay and ask a staff member for directions to the exit.....he was very helpful. When we go back to Valencia we will not be staying in that area but will head for the old centre.
