Hotel Valentina

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Let me start by saying this is not a review of the accommodation as I haven’t stayed at the hotel, but it is an account of 14 delightful nights in the company of the bar and reception staff at this wonderful hotel.

The reason for this was simple; the bar at the adjacent George Hotel where we were staying had no draft beer and the price’s for the bottle beers were excessive. Thank goodness we found the Valentina and above all, the barman Armondo who made us so welcome we were destined for 13 more nights of fun and conversation in an extremely convivial atmosphere.

Armondo, Julia and Nemanja who looked after the bar are a credit to themselves and the hotel. They are professional bar persons who take pride in what they do, serving all manner of drinks to the thirsty public of which my wife and me were just two. Armondo should take special credit for the meticulous way in which he constructs the cocktails and the results are spectacular. Likewise, some light bites, may be a selection of cheese, tomato, olives and salami are so welcome whilst enjoying a drink at the bar.

As a result of our visits to the Valentina bar we also hit upon the hotels own separate restaurant, the Avenue where we had an enjoyable dinner every night. Again, nothing was too much trouble and the food was delicious and always served with a smile. Indeed, we were even given a discount card to use in the restaurant which provided for an extra 10% off the bill.

My wife and me cannot heap enough praise upon this hotel or rather the people that run it. They are truly customer focused, friendly and attentive and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone who wants to be looked after during their holiday.

So well done to all the staff at the Valentina, especially Armondo and Julia who went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. Thanks too, to Alexander at reception who was absolutely charming and finally to the management and owners who have provided the environment in which their staff can flourish. If only the George Hotel took a similar approach!!

This is a well located hotel, nice and comfortable. The staff cares of your needs at every time. If you hire a car you can park in the car park for free. It also has a small pool in the roof. The king size beds are wonderful and ensure a deep sleep. The lunch cool be a bit better specially the coffee but the pies are tasty. At the weekends the area seems to be noisy but in February it was fine. As a summary it's more than a 3 stars hotel.

Nice rooms with modern decor. Street noise is gone with windows closed. Good location for bars, restaurants, clubs. Close to major bus lines and hopon hop off bus. Don't need a car. Strongly recommend. Don't miss the big breakfast!

Very modern, smart hotel, clean and good facilities, even the bar prices were good value. In Paceville so if noise bothers you just be aware. Bonus of good breakfast and free wifi. Apparently this has to be 200 characters, so last sentence is just for that - so much for brevity!

stayed three nights. Employees were so kind from the time I made booking. The room was clean, bed was so comfortable, and free WiFi is available. I used the underground parking to park a rent car for free of charge. It is very difficult to find room for improvements.

One thing for those who wants to stay quiet rooms. On Friday and Saturday night, it was bit noisy outside. I did not mind the noise so much as I could sleep well, but for some people, it would be something that they can not ignore.

Better to book via website of the hotel rather than via booking sites as you may take advantage of discounts and other benefits available only for bookings via website.
