Smart modern hotel on an attractive tree lined avenue. Our room was spacious and well equipped and being at the back was very quiet. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Bikes could be hired from the hotel which has easy access to the cycle ways in the Turia Park and it was onlt 10 mins walk to Colon metro station and 25 mins to Oceanographique and th arts and science [park. The breakfast which was included was plentiful, varied and good quality.

My experience at this hotel was a good one. It is an easy walk to the city center and you can catch the bus nearby and head to the beach.
My window view was straight onto the side of an adjacent building. Also, the window opened up onto a roof and it did not feel safe leaving the window open. This was a disappointment as the weather was perfect. I asked for a different room but was refused. If you want to open your window, ask for a room on an upper floor. It will probably be quieter as well.
Pros:
- Very modern spacious rooms (by European standards)
- Comfortable beds
- Good location
- Reasonable rates

Cons:
-None, really. Reception could be a little friendlier but it was fine.

Room Tip: For a quieter experience, ask for a room on a higher floor.

A clean modern hotel with helpful staff who could all speak English. Situated near the wonderful park and less than 10 minutes from the town centre. We arrived in Valencia from the airport and a direct line took us to Colon station, from there the hotel was about an 8 minute walk with bags. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was very quiet but had just views of residential blocks.

If you turn left out of the hotel and then left again there is a huge choice of eating places and bars. There are also restaurants and bars across the road from the hotel.

Husa Dimar thinks it's better than it is. It seems like only the minibars in the rooms edge it into its four-star status.

The weather was cool to mild, but the rooms were sweltering. The air conditioning was not switched on, and the hotel refused to switch it on. The front rooms face a very noisy road, and the back rooms open on to an apartment courtyard. Every noise (especially dogs barking just metres from your window) is magnified to a level which makes sleeping with the window open impossible.

For some strange reason, the hotel doesn't give you soap in the bathroom - a very basic hygiene practice. When we asked for soap, we were given an extra free shampoo. No soap. And yet apparently they have heard that soap has been invented as there's a picture of it on their website.

The bathroom doors are made of frosted glass and don't fill the door frame. What this means is that (a) you can see a person sitting on the toilet through the closed door, and (b) every noise is as clear as if it were made in the same room.

Otherwise, the hotel has a coffee area but no bar. The wi-fi connection is free and good. We didn't have breakfast there as it was very expensive. The hotel's location is fine, without being excellent. If you plan to spend most of your time in the old town, you might find that this hotel is just a bit too far away.

In summary, this hotel should be average at best, but falls down below this standard in some very basic areas. I won't stay here again.

We stayed here for the recent Fallas and were very pleased, The room was very spacious, quiet and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. We only had breakfast one day and this was fine. The location was great for the Fallas, lots of nice restaurants nearby and walking distance to the centre and close to the gardens. The heating was fine and the room was well stocked although I personally take my own toiletries. All in all a really good hotel.

We stayed here overnight and were very impressed by the well- decorated and modern facilities but unfortunately the hotel seems to miss out on basic amenities.
Our room was very cold as the heating had been switched off and it took forever for the room to warm up. There was no milk with the tea and coffee making materials and when we contacted reception we were offered condensed milk! My wife is diabetic so we asked for real milk and were told we would be charged extra for this!
The following morning there was no hot water for a shower etc-apparently all the other guests suffered a similar fate, but no apology was forthcoming. The breakfast had a wide variety of choice and was pretty good, but they need to get the basics right.

The problem you are referring was punctual, due to breakage of a boiler. This problem was solved in the next two hours since we had knowledge of it. Sorry for the inconvenience we have caused you.

The main purpose of a hotel is to get a good nights sleep. The room was uncomfortably hot despite asking for the heating to turned off. The aircon was disabled so we had 3 bad nights. The rest of the hotel was good but I see other guests have had a similar experience. If you cant guarantee a good room then I would advise looking elsewhere. A pity as the rest of the hotel was fine.
