“Great hotel”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We had a wonderful few days at this hotel. The hotel rooms were really spacious and very comfortable. The staff were very helpful especially the breakfast team. The hotel was in a brilliant location in between the old town and the interesting area of Ruzafa where we loved wandering in the evening. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Vincci Lys from June 23-28, and really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in Valencia for two weeks, with the first week ready to explore the old part of the city, and the second week to relax on the beach. The Vincci Lys was the perfect location for us to see the city. Breakfast were excellent, Front staff were great, rooms were big, beds were OK, view was not that great, as it looked directly at a building, but we were in the old part of the city with narrow streets. All in all I would recommend staying here to see the city. We both loved seeing Spain for the first time.

I spent a night at the Vincci Lys on a family trip (four adults) and we all absolutely loved it. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful when we checked in. The location is right in the heart of town, a beautiful area surrounded by restaurants and fantastic shopping. I would recommend booking with breakfast, since the breakfast buffet is excellent and probably the best that we had in all of our travels in Spain. One small thing, not really a complaint - we were traveling with a car. The hotel does have parking, but it costs 20 Euro/night, even for hotel guests. We didn't realize this when we made the booking.

But overall an excellent hotel, friendly staff, and a great experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room if you can get one - twice the size of a regular room!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a few nights in July.
When we search for places to stay, our main considerations are location, costs, safety, sleep quality etc.

Location -
This hotel really does have a superb location, we used the Metro from the airport and the hotel is in walking distance (thank you google maps).
The location is great for access to all parts of the city and we walked to all of the main attractions.
There are plenty of good places to eat and drink for all times of day. We ate out for all our meals and would recommend the same.

Costs -
Hotel is reasonably priced and the room have everything you need (standard tourist).

Safety -
No concerns at all. There are a few beggars and buskers but they are not intense and will accept a polite no.

Sleep quality -
The hotel did let itself down here.
We requested a double bed, but were supplied 2 twins pushed together. I am aware the hotel doesn't have enough to fulfil all requests, but it was disappointing.
Further the twins were so uncomfortable, neither of us had great sleep. They are lumpy and could feel the springs.

On the plus side, the bedroom part of the rooms were separated by another door, so hotel room door goes into a reception area with access to the bathroom and there is another door into the bedroom. Did think this was a nice touch.
Again however the hotel let themselves down with flooring.
The floors were marble / tiled. Nice and cool, looks nice, however every time our upstairs neighbours moved chairs or walked in heels this could be heard in our room.

I would also urge a note of caution when using the shower -
Firstly the shower is in a bath and the water is piped from the bath taps. To me this seemed almost antiquated, I mean why no shower room ???
The caution comes from using the shower and attempting to find a constant temperature that is comfortable.
There is a knack, I couldn't find it, I ended up initially chasing the temperature e.g. when cold turned to hot, when too hot, back to cold.
This however just resulted in loud swearing.
I then decided to be typically British and to stand there and take it (despite the claim my wife said about the occasional girly scream).
Finally near the end of our stay I concluded it was all about the timing. When you feel the temp drop, back away and soap up, wait and count to 30, then hopefully the temp has again normalised for finishing off.

I did raise my concerns with the staff at reception who nodded and made notes but no changes materialised. My opinion is that its like when someone else in your household runs the taps when you are showering at home. Funny the 1st time but this soon wears off.

Staff -
The maids are outstanding, always smile and speak.
Reception staff, polite, friendly and helpful.

Overall -
I would advise scoping other hotels with similar costing's as this hotel does have great staff and location but at the end of the day, you choose a hotel to sleep and refresh yourselves for the holiday / reason for visiting.
Shame really as the hotel is nice but lets you down on the basics.

We chose this hotel based on its location and were not disappointed. A two minute walk from the metro Xativa stop, from which we got the train direct from the airport. Friendly reception spoke very good English. Good sized tastefully decorated room even though only a standard one, air conditioning brilliant. Bathroom also a good size. We had the bonus of a balcony having requested it. Free reliable wifi and use of safe, comfortable bed. The room was always spotless. If we return to Valencia it would be to this hotel.

We stayed for a 4 night break for our wedding anniversary and the hotel kindly surprised us with complimentary Champagne which we were delighted with. Thank you Christina!

Plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby so we didn't take breakfast. High Street shops were close at hand so a shoppers paradise, especially if you (like me) are fond of shoes!

The old town is easily accessible on foot, as is the Science Park if you don't mind a half hour walk. With the metro on the doorstep it was also easy to access the beach and port although this took half an hour.

In all recommended.

The Vincci Lys was smack-dab in the middle of all the action, and afterall, that's what we were looking for -- a hotel from which we can access on foot all that we want to see. While we didn't spend much time in our room, it was quiet and comfortable. The rooms are large and comfortable, the bathrooms have nice showers and the staff was helpful but not overbearing. The only qualm was the height of the chandelier in the middle of the room. You'll hit your head if you're over 6' tall. We were with a car, and the hotel provided a discount on underground parking. Our two-night stay didn't break the bank -- we paid 242 Euros ($344) with parking. Hint: skip the breakfast and get cafe con leche and chocolate croissants from the Carpe Diem across from the hotel entrance.

We stayed here as 2 couples in early June 2014. We booked through a consolidator and on arrival were shown rooms at the back of the hotel with a huge brick wall about 6 feet away. We rejected these rooms and were told that there was only one standard room facing the front of the hotel left. This was a pleasant room so our friends had that and we only were left with paying a supplement of 60 euros a night for a superior room as I am claustrophobic. After some negotiation the reception staff agreed we could only pay 30 euros a night which we accepted. The only difference from the standard room was a terrace which was too hot to use and a somewhat bigger room certainly not worth 60 euros a night. However the hotel is well situated in a pedestrian street which was being dug up noisily all day and it is within walking distance of most places in old Valencia.
It is a lovely city and there is lots to see and do. The hotel breakfast which was included in our deal was good and there was lots of choice although the usual hard boiled eggs and tepid bacon were not very appetising. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom were very clean and well appointed and everything worked well. A good choice for a city break if you can specify a front facing room.

Dear guest,

We regret that the first room was not completely to your liking. Rooms are allocated on the customer arrival and at that time we did not have other rooms in the same category.

We hope that you can visit us in the near future so that you can enjoy a real Vincci experience.

With best wishes,
