“Brilliant apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is a great apartment within a 10-min walk of the old town. The apartment consists of 2 good-sized bedrooms with double beds, a kitchen with all mod cons (microwave, washing machine, gas hob and oven, electric kettle, and a mocha pot!), bathroom with bath/shower, and a lovely living room with a balcony. It's in a great location, 10 mins to the old city gates and the river. It's also on the metro line for the beach. There are a couple of great supermarkets close by, and numerous smaller shops and cafe/bakeries. The living room and balcony are a lovely place to unwind after a day in the city/beach. Really loved the location and would stay here again on a visit to this brilliant city. The owner is very welcoming and provides lots of information on the locality. Wifi is also available at an extra cost of 15€ per week. Highly recommended!

“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 for a stay in October 2011

We visited Valencia for the first time. It was so great that we will certainly return some day. In this appartment we had a bike rental station on a distance of just 100m and the old city centre within a 10 minutes easy walk. We started our day with a cup of coffee in the bakery on the corner. The appartment was perfect and it was a good place to return to after visiting the beach, the musea, the centre. The balcony is very nice and you really feel 'spanish' when you sit there to relax.

Dear Guest. I'm really pleased thet you had an enjoyable stay and found the city's ameneties so readily to hand. Valencia's bike hire has proven immensely popular with both locals and savvy tourists alike for good reasons ie; dedicated bike trails - one of the best being the magnificent v.closeby 9km river gardens - easy flat terrain throughout & over 205 conveniently located stations around the city and a big plus - its excellent value. Glad you took advantage of the delightful balcony which really gives this city apartment something pleasantly different....Thanks David.

“This apartment met all our requirements - and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We found this apartment by chance when searching the Internet for free parking in Valencia. How glad we were. After a few false starts we managed to park in a perfect spot visible from our balcony. The apartment was clean, well prepared and well equipped, even though we only booked the day before our arrival. David and Javi were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location was ideal within minutes of old town and Turia park. The metro station is round the corner and we bought a card of 10 tickets which made it very easy to go to the seaside and other places. Although we were in a city apartment, the lovely balcony made us feel as though we were in a garden. We were directed to El Bokeito taverna for Wifi access, but it became our favourite place for drinks and tapas.

Many thanks for your kind commendations. Parking around the centre of Valencia can invariably be a nightmare and fortunately with so many closeby streets with nominal restrictions this has to be one of the easier locations without having to fork out extra euros (usually 25€ per 24hours!). El bocaito has really taken off - & rightly so as you confirmed with its excellent value food & friendly service - where you can enjoy the best of offerings at 20-30% less than any comparable El Carmen bar/brasserie offering & 'hook-up'(internet) for the price of a beer/coffee.
We're please that you found everything to up to standard and enjoyed relaxing out on the delightful balcony such a bonus. You probably didn't have need to use the living room air-con' as there is always a pleasant breeze throughout the apartment as on the 5th floor, however we have now repaced this elderly unit for a new efficient inverter type (eco-friendly) 'whisper quiet'model as part of our ongoing improvements and intentions to continue offering great value.....

“Great Location... great value comfortable appartment.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Had a great stay. First trip to Valencia and loved it.The location was perfect for the old town and main attractions.
David was very welcoming, helpful and full of information. He was also very accommodating around 'non-standard' arrival and departure times.
Having rented apartments before, we particularly appreciated extras such as loo roll, hand soap and washing up liquid... cooking oil etc.
Thanks very much David... had a great time.

“Great apartment to discover fabulous Valencia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Easy to book and great communications from the landlord throughout. We were met at the apartment and given lots of useful information and two sets of keys. Great as we were two couples travelling together.
The apartment was as expected from the photos. Great living room area with balcony over the street and a good sized dining table. Bedroom two was small as we read on other reviews but the bed was very comfortable which is much more important. Extra pillows and blankets were supplied and there was masses of storage space in the apartment. It was really helpful to have basic items in the kitchen and bathroom such as soap, washing up liquid, foil, clingfilm and toilet rolls which saved us having to buy all these items just for a week.
The location was excellent for us. A short walk to the historic centre but in an area where we could take part in the local Fallas celebrations in the streets nearby.All the amenities were close by, bakery for breakfast and supermarkets for provisions, and bus and tram stops for trips to the beach and marina.
The landlords could not have been more helpful and were able to accomodate our early departure time. I have already recommended the apartment to family and friends.
Valencia is a beautiful city with so much to do and see. We were there for the Fallas celebrations which have to be seen to be believed. We need to return again and see all the things we couldn't fit into our week and would happily book the same apartment again.

Thanks for your kind recommendations and I'm really pleased that you all enjoyed a fantastic stay over the Fallas fiesta which invariably can be quite tiring and that you found our apartment well located to be able to quickly step back-to without losing the tremendious buzzing atmosphere; for a quick & necessary recharge.
The pleasant lively terraced cafes & bars as you mention closeby offer great value from breakfasts through to dinner or just a delicious 'cafe con leche' and allow some well earned feet easing or just enjoying & watching the local world go by...
Hopefully we'll either see yourselves or your friends in the nearest future. Thanks David.

“Ideal for sightseeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Very comfortable with very easy access to essential shops and a short walk to access transport to all interesting places.
Well equipped kitchen, it would have been useful if there were English instructions for the washing machine.
The nights were chilly in March but lots of extra bedding supplied.
Everything nice and clean and regular cleaning in the entrance and hallways.
Very good elevator system.

Thanks for reminding me re; manual for washing machine. I'll see whether it's possible to download one to make life easier! - as one supplied Spanish only. I'm pleased that you found everything readily convenient and the dual lift service really is great - extremely efficient consequently invariably there's little need to have to share with other neighbours. Interestingly the building was constructed to quite a high Spanish standard and is maintained accordingly.

“Get what you pay for”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We travelled to Valencia for a 4 night stay to experience what the city has to offer and catch up with some family there.

The apartment had a good location; a 15 minute walk to the centre / Cathedral. There is a bakery downstairs which looked good but we never tried it as it was convenient to walk in to town where there is more atmosphere.

The photographs of the apartment are a little deceiving. It is not as big as it appears and there is not as much natural light as the outside shutters do not open on several windows. The beds are more like large single beds; we took a bed each to sleep in as there were only 2 of us, I would not like to have had to share the bed! 

It was clean and tidy, though a little run down. The television didn't work and the AC / heating units didn't work properly. We kept our coats on to keep warm as we were there during a cold February. There were extra blankets which was good. 

The walls are very thin; we could hear our neighbour snoring, baby crying, and general noise in the morning.

There were some issues with the owner and getting our deposit back which made the whole experience a little stressful. We arrived at 10 pm after a long journey and were hoping to get out to a local restaurant / shop before they closed at 11 pm as we had not eaten. However when we arrived the owner was still preparing the apartment / making up beds. He also then talked a lot and spent lots of time going over the contracts, taking our passport details, deposit etc. We understand the reasons for these but didn't feel the same level of securities were returned to us at the end of our trip (we also didn't get to eat until morning as owner didn't leave until 11pm).

When were told to contact the owner with our departure time the night before we were leaving so he could come meet us with our deposit, however, no time we suggested seem to suit him and in the end he told us to go on home, leave the keys in the apartment, and he would put the money in our account at a later date. Of course we had no guarantees this would happen. We needed to leave for our flights on the last morning of our stay, and at 1 am the night before the owner was still texting us pretty twisty messages, with no agreement on meeting us. We generally got the impression he did not want to give the deposit back (it was the same amount as the total rent for our stay). Long story short we had to ask a family member from Valencia to leave work to meet the owner for the deposit at the specific and only time it suited him the next day. We got our full deposit back (we left the apartment spotless), but it was a very annoying and unprofessional experience. It also meant we were not given the opportunity to give feedback to the owner about the problems with the apartment (broken TV, AC / heating units etc.). 

If you are after something cheap, were you won't need to spend much time, and don't mind paper thin walls where you can hear the neighbours snoring, and can deal with silly dramas such as the above, then stay here. But we will not be back!

Briefly: The blinds, t.v and a/c (currently awaiting parts) beds amd wall construction are all standard or as listed. If late arrival is inevitable, I accommodate - with a smile! Nobody leaving early realistically expects me to travel upwards of 50 mins during morning 'rush hour' - all have promptly received their full deposit back electronically or the night before their departure (as both contract and terms all indicate). Comfortable and affordable living and the personal, concerned service are what I strive to offer and what I depend upon - as a consequence - enjoying many previous recommendations on both this site and others.
