Very disappointed with room as was on 1st floor with view of carpark, otherwise small but functional. I expected that but did not expect lobby area/ breakfast area to be one and the same, not large enough and no atmosphere! Expected it to be bigger and more stylish for a new hotel. Reception staff were very nice and breakfast itself... More

Dear Guest: As you indicate the location of the hotel is the best, as we are the closest hotel to the Ciudad de las Ciencias, and walking through the El Saler Mall is more comfortable to get to it as it is air conditioned or heated during the whole year. Sincerelly, General Manager. More
