Stayed here for two nights with my young family so we could visit the Oceanographic Valencia. On arrival we upgraded to a 'premium room' for an additional €17/night so that we could have a King Size bed instead of two singles. The room was that bit bigger too which made it easier for the additional bed for our eldest son. The premium rooms include faster wifi internet, which is worth €10/day and are on the higher floors with better views.
For a four star hotel I had expected a few more luxuries, such as a corkscrew, ice bucket and ice machine (had to take my bottle and ask for a glass of ice from the bar), also the TV in Spain is terrible, so a bit more choice of cable channels (the only english channel was News 24) would be good, and a remote that matched the TV. The internet, even with faster internet, is not fast enough to stream videos.
Location is very good with numerous cafes, bars and restaurants in the area for breakfast, lunch and dinner there is no need to eat in the hotel. El Corte Ingles is immediately next door, which also has a supermarket on the lower ground floor. The city of arts and science is over the road, and surrounded by a beautiful large park where you can hire bicycles or stroll around. It also has several child play areas.
The staff at the hotel throughout have been very pleasant and helpful, and were quick to assist with any queries, without that look of inconvenience that you sometimes find in Spain...
Overall recommended, though I would rate this hotel as a Superior 3* not 4.
