I arrived with a friend at 2130 after a long trip to find it took over half an hour to check in, There was just one guy on the desk and he spent more time chatting to other customers that by the time I actually got to the room I'd had quite a set-to with him about the customer service,... More

I was torn between a three and a four star for this hotel, but in the end I would stay here again. On the plus side our room, the bathroom, and all of the common areas were spotlessly clean. We had a standard room and it was kind of small and the bathroom had the oddest layout; your knees hit... More

Very central to shops, bars, restaurants, if you follow the road down a bit there is an amazing tapas restaurant. Rooms cleaned every day, lots of mini toiletries, spare blanket, comfortable beds, the bathroom room is not very sound proof so recommend going with someone you feel VERY comfortable with. Breakfast was advertised as £13 online but they dropped it... More

Easy to find and centrally located, just a few minutes behind the main square and not that far from the cathedral. The staff were very friendly and the rooms, at least ours spacious. Our intention was not to have their breakfast but on arrival they offered us it at €8 couldn't refuse. Although the dining room was busy the friendly... More

Hello and thanks for reading this review. Stayed here Mid May and there were a few of us. Check i was swift thanks to a pre-planned check in. The location is spot one, real central and good access via the metro. Well presented and the hotel had two lifts and a smart appearance throughout. If you are going on a... More

We stayed on 2-5 May and the Hotel's location is spot on. It makes walking around the city centre and attractions very easy. We booked the standard room, and this showed some sign of tiredness, the hair dryer hanging off the wall and edging warn etc. Also no coffee or tea making facilities ! We were offered and booked breakfast... More

Stayed for the night of 22nd April and the experience was one to remember & recommend. Greeted by Jose who could not do enough to help. The room was excellent, the location for viewing within Valencia perfect, and the helpfulness of all staff was first class. Will return.

Situated a few paces from Plaza del Ayuntamiento, the Catalonia Excelsior is a comfortable, value for money base for a short break in a city that has plenty to keep most travellers occupied and entertained. First impressions were good, with a clean and smart reception and a pleasant welcome. We were offered breakfast at the reduced 8 euros per person... More

Not the biggest of hotels with a small reception, bar and dining room but it more than makes up for it in other areas. Bright and modern with friendly staff and a great location. The breakfast was top notch despite the dining room being on the small size. Rooms were also smaller than average but well appointed and clean.

The hotel was beyond expectations, beautifully located, high quality breakfast, friendly and professional personnel. very peaceful at night but closed to main restaurants and transport (metro /busses) I really would recomend the hotel to anyone going to Valencia.
