We booked at short notice, the price with breakfast included was very reasonable for a city centre hotel. clean, smart room, with good bathroom. Plenty of fresh linen and towels as needed with free Wi-Fi in lobby. Breakfasts were excellent with lots of variety ( although they haven't quite got the hang of tea, you do get an insulated flask of very hot water and tea bags, it took a while to track down the milk!)
The hotel deserves its 4* rating, the reception staff were all very helpful ( like having your own private tourist guides) and they spoke good English. The double glazing is amazing and the air conditioning very, very, quiet. We were on the third floor, they have two lifts. This hotel is in a busy pedestrian street within easy walking distance of Xativa metro station. Ideal if you want to explore the compact old town areas, all an easy stroll away.
If you need the beach, no problem, bus no. 32 stop is 50m away, almost door to beach. Buy a Metrobus card from the local paper shop, 10 trips for 10 Euros. One card, just swiped once for each person, on entry to the bus. The locals are very friendly and try to help. We had no knowledge of Spanish but this wasn't a problem. The restaurant right outside the main entrance, is frequented by local people and was very good with the Paella cooked on demand, you wait a while but it's far better than some of the tourist traps around.
One that bothered us, but no fault of the hotel at all, there are a large number of beggars in Valencia. They approach you on the beach and when you sit outside at restaurant tables. Just say no thank you firmly and they left us alone (until the next one arrived!) Our record was eight during one meal!! We did hear one very good busker singing and playing the guitar and tipped him.
Enjoy your holiday in this beautiful city and feel relaxed about booking this hotel.
