We selected this property based solely on it's proximity - within walking distance to the apartment our son was renting during a study abroad experience. I wasn't expecting a lot for 65 Euro a night, but was still a bit disappointed. The air-conditioning did not work well AT ALL. We opened the windows before we went to bed and caught a decent breeze, but weren't able to lock the windows when we went to sleep and, since we were on a lower floor with acess to a nearby overhang, didn't feel safe leaving them open.
The unit itself was fairly roomy, with a separate lounge area, a big bathroom (although we did have to lift the toliet tank top up and down to get it to flush) and a nice sized bedroom. Everything was clean, but the decor was pretty dated.
Breakfast was okay, but nothing to write home about. It was also VERY expensive for what we got - $21US for little more than continental offerings. You don't have to go for this added option, but there didn't look to be a lot of other dining choices right nearby.
The hotel was within walking distance to the beach tram and the University of Valencia/Valencia Polytechnic University, so that was a plus.
Our trip was delayed due to mechanical issues with our plane at our departure city. Although I immediately e-mailed the hotel via booking.com, they refused to refund any part of our scheduled first night's stay - even with a note from the airline - because we didn't give 24 hours notice. I understand their policy, but since we contacted them as soon as humanly possible, I would have thought they could have given us some consideration.
