Location - is great. You can get the metro from the airport like we did with ease. The Turia stop is right outside the hotel. There is also a El Corte Ingles shopping centre right next door which makes it easy if you need to buy anything. There is also a supermarket on the bottom level where you can buy snacks, drinks etc. There are also cafes and restaurants in the shopping centre, we found them to be good for breakfast but tried not to eat there otherwise unless we were being lazy.
I also read a lot of reviews suggesting you buy a tourist metro card - don't do this unless you're planning on taking the metro a lot! We wasted quite a bit of money on it when we easily could have just paid for our trips.
It's also a pretty quick walk to El Carme/El Carmen - if you do this I recommend you go to Canela for some paella also.
Rooms - pretty basic. My main complaint would have been lack of fridge as I prefer my water cold and on the last night I discovered what I thought was the safe was actually a fridge so that is my fault!
Hotel itself - didn't eat here as it looked pretty overpriced. Went up to the terrace briefly - you can't eat your own food there despite what the reception staff may tell you, but its nice to sit there anyway. Pool looked to be pretty busy a lot of the time but we went to the beach instead.
Staff - desk staff were friendly and a couple of them spoke English which was handy for us.
All in all, for the price, you can't really complain about this place!
