Cycles can be hired from reception fuss-free (10 euros per weekday or 15 on weekends plus 50 refundable deposit). Fantastic dedicated cycle lanes all round Valencia, up alongside the promenade at Malvorosa Beach and way past the old city in the other direction. I cycled for 8 hours and never left a cycle lane. No hills either!
Hotel is ideally located, half-way between the beach/port area and the old city, a short walk from the City of Arts and Sciences (the Oceanographic is magical) and the Turia park walkways. The room was very clean and well maintained; the hotel staff were very helpful; slept very well. I didn't eat at the hotel, so can't comment on their food, but the restaurant looked nice.
Tip: eat substantially at lunchtimes, taking advantage of the good-value 'menu del dias' (10-15 euros for a 3 course meal, including glass of wine or beer), then if you still feel hungry, 'tapas' the night away!
Suggestion: avoid the Science Museum at the CAS. The building is beautiful, but there's not much in it! The Heliographic is fun for children; not so much for adults.
