“Great location, clean and tidy, ideal for family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2014

Flats are basic but clean and functional. Stayed with 3 kids.
Big plus is location, under 10 minutes walk to Science museum, Aquarium etc and the river park. Playground just round the corner.
Kitchens are better equipped than a lot of Spanish apartments, reception staff very friendly and helpful.
Italien restaurant underneath full of equally friendly staff and great pizza.
Only downside is not much soundproofing, suspect that was worse for people staying near us but some soft furnishings would help.
We would certainly use this again for a winter trip (where no need for outside space or pool).

Room Tip: Go higher up to get away from road noise or an apartment at the back

If you come to visit Valencia for few days and don't want to spend a lot of money for hotel, it is a good place to stay. You will get nice and clean room, but don't have a high expectations as the facilities are basic. The weak point is the location. Even the public transport is very convenient way to get to a heart of Valencia, but it is a hassle to take it every each time to get to centre. Overall it is a great budget place with friendly staff and clean rooms.

We decided to book a flat as reviews(in the website we booked through) were positive. The position is perfect if you want to visit Ciudad de las ciencias, that's what we wanted to. just 10minutes (walking) and you're there. Staff was kind and the flat was quite big as we were 4 in a place meant for 6 people (2 bedrooms one living/dining room but a small square table and only 4 chairs....if we'd been 6, where would the other two of us have been sitting?). The bedrooms didn't have any curtains and the beds had no blanket just sheets (not even a topper on the mattress).
The air/co worked but it was very noisy. The kitchen had no dishwasher but we found one(just one) kitchen towel in a drawer but it had already been used by previous guests. luckily i often bring a couplle from home. if you want a toeater, a ketlle or a coffee machine(not a filter but only Italian ones) you ask at the reception desk. the whole flat was not properly clean as there were hairs on the floor and small crumbs under the table.The most disappointing thing was that it was not as shown in photos on the website, or maybe the flats are the same but the photos had been taken years before. For 130 euros per night with no meals we expected something better.

Room Tip: if you have a car do not pay extra money for the parking; in the streets nearby you can find parking...

This is basically a one bedroom apartment with a small living space, kitchenette and bathroom. It was very basic with thin sheets and towels and old used furniture. The traffic checking in and out was constant. No breakfast was offered although there are cafes in this mostly residential area. The location is very near the city of arts and sciences and the wifi worked great. There is a parking garage underneath for a fee. This would work well for a family with small children but is not for the luxury traveler.

Officially this may be called a hostel, but I think it's definitely worth calling a hotel. I have experienced way more shabby 3, and even 4, star hotels than this hostel. It's location is very convenient next to the Ciudad and the tourist bus stops just around the corner.

We had room 101, which was very spacious and clean. It was a bit noisy, but nothing we couldn't handle for a night (at a rate of €28!!!). This will definitely be my go to place in Valencia when I need a place to stay.

Great choice for families with kids who plan to visit CAC. CAC is a 10 minute walk from the apartments. There are plenty restaurants, tapas bar and cafeterias in the neighborhood. Our kids enjoyed many playgrounds in the area. El Saler shopping center is close by, which is convenient for self-caters. On the negative side: parking garage (13€ per day) was full during our stay, so we had to search for a available parking spot (street parking) every day. We were given an upgrade to 2 bedroom apartment, which was nice. The apartment was large, clean & modern.

Location is very near the city of arts and the oceanarium and Gullier (for kids). The price was very affordable and the room sizeable ..

Two cons for the place are the smoke smell in the room and the night staff was quite grouchy.

In terms of food, not too many restaurants within 600m that's well rated in tripadvisor
