This hotel is perfectly located wtihin the older part of the city. If you fly into Valencia you can get the tube straight from the airport into the city, and the hotel is less than ten minutes walk from the closest tube station. We had upgraded to a superior room because after booking a "double" room through an online agent, I realised the confirmation said "two twin beds", so I e-mailed the hotel direct and chose to pay an upgrade to a superior room. I was annoyed with the agent, but delighted with our upgraded room. We were at the front of the hotel on the corner, so had one balcony facing towards the street and one facing towards the museum building next door which is stunning. The bed was a super king which was great, and it was very comfy!
The hotel was in an ideal position for our stay. You will get your bearings pretty quickly within the city, and will soon find that you can walk around the whole of the old town and never be too far from the hotel. The science park is about a forty minute ambling walk away, and you can do this by walking most of the way through the city park - we would recommend a visit to the aquarium!
We didn't eat at the hotel (the menu looked quite pricey), so can't comment on breakfast or dinner. However we did sample a few cocktails in the bar. Unfortunately we can't remember the name of our barman, but the service was wonderful, and I had my G&T made in front of me on a tray - apparently how they are meant to be made!
For breakfast, if you don't eat in the hotel, there is a little cafe if you cross over the road and walk about twenty yards, where the young lad who worked there greeted us with a smile every mornings. We would recommend a "Sanchos" for breakfast!!
We would definately recommend this hotel to anyone on a visit to Valencia, and would definately stay here again!
