Just returned from a 5 day break in Valencia. The location of these flats, is brilliant. At the end of the road you have the city of arts and science. I must say it is a beautiful sight to see. There are several places to eat right outside the the entrance, which do some lovely food however it does mean that you would easily miss the entrance to the flats if you did not know it was there. The reception staff were very polite and spoke fairly fluent englich and were very helpful whenever we needed something. The beds and bathroom were clean which was definately a perk. if looking for luxury, best to look around for other accomodation as there is no spa's, pool's on site.
A few issues we had: everyday you wanted to use the wifi you had to get a new password to use it. there are no mirrors in the bedroom, corridor or lounge. There is only one and that is in the bathroom- a bit of a problem when you have a flat full of girls wanting to get ready. The flats get cleaned every 3 day, which is not a problem, other then our room wasn't cleaned. Be careful as the rooms vary in size, unfortunately we had a small flat. the bedroom was quite tight for space where as the rooms shown in the pictures look qutie spacious. We had a cupboard size, so-called balcony- the generator took up a large chunk of space and there were shutters fixed in place so you could not see the street. although you would not want to stand there as the heat that came off the generator was unbearably hot. Other rooms had balconies, so best to check when booking. For all the bits you expect in your kitchen were available however the elctronic items (kettle/ toaster) you had to ask at reception.
The is a bus stop on the road and at the end of the road which takes you in to the city. Taxi's are cheap compared to london, they start at 4 euros throughout the day and then 6 euros at night. The taxi to the airport cost less then 20euros. Public transport from the airport to accomodation is very easy. take the line 5 or 3 from the airport (3euros each, discount available for groups) get off at xatvia, you will see the railway station and bull ring, on the opposite side of the road (outside claire's accessories) you can get the 35 bus(1.50 euros) which stops near the flats. There is a shopping mall 10 mins away from the flats with a large supermarket for all your bits. There are a cople of other shops around, supermarkets within walking distance and a really nice bakery about 2 streets away. The reception will help with any sightseeing tips and can also book tickets for tour buses and the biopark (a definate must see.) The beach is probably about a 20-25 minute walk, pleanty of restaurants, bars and clubs (las animales is an outstanding venue however it gets very crowded)
The location is nice, and having not had too many issues I would probably consider staying again
