“Great For Our Family”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

We were so pleasantly surprised at 40 Flats in Valencia. The room was clean and spacious and the location next to the Oceanographic and Science Centre. Our 11 and 14 year old were very taken with the area as were we.

The price of 75 euro/night was better than we'd thought it would be as we just booked from the Valencia airport after touchdown while using a Rick Steve's book as a reference guide. The $0 Flat staff member held us a room until we got there and viewed, and the decision to stay was quickly made. All staff were extremely helpful and the apartment was well-equipped and extremely spacious. The surrounding area, apart from the Science Centre, held plenty of places to buy groceries which we used to cook indoors. We enjoyed the accommodation and area so much we stayed an extra 2 days.

Well worth it with an easy check-in and check-out and valencia itself appeared to be a very cool city.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment as opposed to a theme room if you want a sizable room.

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

Room Tip: larger group flats (4/5 people) are definately more spacious and have more of a balcony. rooms facin...

Four of us stayed for six days/five nights in March for the festival of Las Fallas. 40Flats has an excellent location: a two block walk to a bus line that takes you straight up to the city center through an interesting part of the city. Also it is a three block walk from the City of Arts and Sciences, and about a four block walk from a large grocery store set inside a decent mall. Location is great. The beds were fine, the rooms were decent sized; we had two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The living room was sparse, a couch that converts to a bed and a dining table and also had a walk out balcony overlooking the inner courtyard and a smallish flat screen TV. One of the bedrooms had a little balcony as well, and the kitchen sorta had one. The kitchen was equipped with utensils, the use of a refrigerator is a big plus even if you don't plan to cook. We did not have any problems with noise from neighbors and the windows did a fairly good job of keeping out the normal street noise (Las Fallas is a festival of fireworks among other things: they set off firecrackers from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.). There is a 24 hour desk clerk who can speak English. Would definitely go back there again and will definitely consider a similar arrangement at another destination. We did this to avoid paying for two hotel rooms and were very happy with our accommodations and location.

Room Tip: our room was at the end of the hall so we had views to the street and the courtyard and neighbors on...

We were three adults and two small children and we spent two nights in an apartment that was supposed to be adequate for 6 people. It is not. The apartment is big enough and comfortable for 6 people but there are only four adequate beds, the other 2 people should need to sleep in a sofa in the living room that it is not in great condition. The main problem for us though was that it was not very clean. My son found a couple of small toys under the sofa, along with a lot of dirt. One towel was completely dirty. This is inadmissible specially if you travel with kids.

Perhaps in any other large city ( like London, Paris ) it would be adequate. Valencia has oversupply of wonderful cheap hotels.The area around Arts and Sciences has tons of choices on discount travel sites- all are better than 40 flats. Unless you travel with a horde of kids and need a lot of space make an effort and book something better. At the time I was booking 40flats I could have had 5 star Westin on Priceline for 20 bucks more. Since we were travelling with a kid and a car we thought that convenience over-weighs the price: 40flats were offering cheap covered parking , free internet , free tickets to Arts and Sciences or Zoo etc.... First of all, we couldn't book their " online offer" of free tickets with booking. we called a helpline and were told not to worry , they will notify the reception. Well, receptionist stared at us like we were Martians when we asked. Free internet never worked for more than 2 minutes before logging out - the whole 4 days stay. Covered parking was impossible to use for a decent size car- we were given an upgrade of Mercedes S350 at car rental and we couldn't park it.
There is plenty of space - it is true ( we booked the biggest suite in order to qualify for free tickets , silly ). But it has a feel of a housing project.It is basically a high-rise residential building Whole place reeks of cooking smells, the AC is noisy like a motorcycle, beds are hard as a rock, furniture - cheap fake wood laminate. Fans in bathrooms noisy , water - yellow.
The elevator ( we were on the 7th floor ) was always busy.
Not a good value.

We enjoyed a very relaxing short break with our two and a half year old son in the two bed appartment. The appartment had two twin bed rooms of good size and two bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath. Large sitting room with dining table and balcony, and separate kitchen. Appartments were modern and clean. Only complaint was no kettle or coffee maker or toaster. We got by with boiling water in saucepan, just takes longer. Appartments are located five minute walk from Ciudad de Sciences and ten/fifteen mins from Oceanographic all of which was amazing. Also ten mins walk was El Saler shopping centre with huge supermarket etc. Some good restaurants/bars on opposite side of road from CAC to 40 Flats. Also taxi rank at side of El Saler. Bio Parc is 15mins in taxi (very reasonable E10) and is well worth a visit.

We stayed in 40flats with our 2 kids aged 8 and 18 months for one night, as we had a weekend at the ciudad de artes y ciencias. The location was fantastic for us, walking distance to everything we needed. We were upgraded to a 2 bed apartment for free and the room was spotlessly clean. The service I got from reception both before and during our stay was fantastic. The only thing missing for me was a kettle for my morning cuppa!
Would recommend 40flats without hesitation and will definitely stay there again.
