What a fabulous time we had staying here for 4 nights. From the moment our taxi pulled up outside we were treated like royalty. Our cases were whisked from us as we got out of the cab and appeared in reception leaving us to check in leisurely. As it was a special trip for us we were immediately upgraded to a suite! As we had arrived slightly earlier than planned we were shown to the bar and given complimentary cocktails. Our son who is studying in Spain came to meet us and he had a cocktail too! The suite was worth the wait, and more than worth what we had paid. The location of the hotel right in the old town is spot on, all of the sights are within a gentle stroll with plenty of places to eat and drink nearby - some good little bars in the leafy square right outside the hotel. The staff are really pleasant and do all they can to make sure you have a good time. We were unsure if we should book for breakfast after reading some reviews, but I would say do it! The views alone are worth it, and the food is plentiful and good - we even had " fizz" for brekkie. The Nespresso machines seemed a bit unreliable, and if you want a pot of tea it does take a while to fill.
I've read of people's complaints of drain smells, but our room was ok, if you walk around Valencia is does seem to have a pervading smell of drains I think their plumbing isn't just up to the standard we enjoy in England.
Overall a great place to stay, if you enjoy a relaxed and comfortable break then the Astoria is the place for you.
