Excellent, relaxing two night stay at the Catalonia Excelsior. Less than a ten minute walk from the central station and near to many of Valencia's attractions. Clean spacious rooms with every amenity one would require for a pleasant city break. Temperature was bordering on 35 degrees so the A/C was very welcome. Quadruple glazing kept all street noise out so... More

Was for business in Valencia. The hotel is in the center of the city. Nice rooms, clean, good bed. Breakfast buffet is oké. They have a small lounge and bar. Personal is really committed and very nice. You can rent a bike around the corner.

An elegant hotel with spacious very clean room fully equipped. Comfortable bed with prime bedding. Nice bathroom with full tub, good for soaking after long walks visiting the cathedral and all museums. We found buffet breakfast quite expensive compare to many cafes nearby. Good location, close to metro and rail station. No parking anywhere.

This hotel is within 5 minutes walk of the Valencia Nord railway station and a few minutes from the centre of the old city. The hotel is within the old city itself bit located just off the main streets so quiet at night. The accommodation was certainly its three stars and more verging on four stars. The staff were all...

I had made a "no change" booking but needed to change my nights because RENFE could not book me a seat on the overnight train from Lisbon to Madrid. Although the hotel had no obligation to alter my booking, they did so. I did not eat at the hotel (late riser and early... More

The hotel is located in the centre of Valencia with easy access to all the interesting spots within the city and on good walking distance of the various museums. Go behind the cathedral and you will find real Valencia with good restaurants and nice bars.

We stayed over at this hotel and found it to be a real nice clean and tidy hotel. The staff were friendly and were very helpful.
