Honestly didn't know what to expect after reading conflicting reviews from multiple sources, but decided that the low cost and the outdoor pool was worth the risk. Glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised:-
We were allocated a double room with a very large comfortable bed. It was spacious and had plenty of wardrobe space. The room had decent air-con and was cleaned every day by a very non-intrusive cleaning service. The pool area was very nice and clean, but it can get quite busy. The location is great, right along the Turia garden (the park that runs down the centre of the city), it is in very close proximity to the old city centre, a 2km walk to the Bioparc, and buses and metro are right outside the door. The shopping centre below the hotel was nice too, with a variety of shops including 2 supermarkets and a number of cafes.
Not much really! I can't comment on the restaurant because we didn't eat there once, but it seemed pricey enough. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the room which I normally like to have. I would also agree with other reviews about the thin walls. We had noisy neighbours for 2 out of our 7 nights, and we could hear them talking and knocking on doors etc., but it wasn't a major inconvenience.
Overall, if you are not looking for luxury, this is an ideal hotel. Most of the bad reviews here are unwarranted in my opinion. You can't expect high level accommodation for the prices that this hotel offers. If you want luxury, pay for luxury. If you want a clean, budget hotel in a great location, choose hotel Expo.
