Some aspects of the hotel were very good - others less so. The location was great for us as we were visiting the Arts & Science complex and it is just a few minutes walk away. There are some restaurants and bars nearby but they are not very appealing as rubbish was piled high along the streets. The nearby El Cortes Inglese has a food court though and a supermarket and there are some nice restaurants and a bakery in the Aqua centre which is also close by.
The room was large with good a/c and a nice bathroom with full bath - the bathroom tiles were a bit chipped and past their best but overall the room was good.
There was a small pool at the hotel but getting pool towels meant leaving a deposit at reception which seemed a bit odd to us - surely they don't they could leave a couple of pool towels in each room for guest use and just check they're there on checkout or else charge you for them. I'm sure most people don't steal the towels and we didn't think it was worth the saga to use the very crowded pool.
This is the kind of thing that lets the hotel down in terms of customer service.In contrast to other hotels we've stayed in recently we found the staff not particularly friendly - they did their job but even checking guests in seemed to be a chore they could do without.
The lifts were unreliable - together with several other guests we had to leave one lift because it would only go up despite the fact we all wanted to go down. We used the fire-exit stairs as no other lift was available only to find that the exit door had metal trolleys jammed against it - lucky there wasn't a fire - I would think there are regulations against this sort of thing and it didn't fill us with confidence in the hotel.
I expected it to be a bit better in terms of quality and service but overall, for the price, the hotel was ok.

We stayed at the Oceanic for 5 nights. We booked a terrace room which was very nice (10th floor). It was lovely to be able to sit out at night and look over the sights. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The hotel was in a good location for getting about. The No. 19 bus runs just behind the hotel. One way takes you towards the Old Town and the other way takes you to the beach. Overall a very lovely stay. Would recommend.

Room Tip: 10th Floor

This 4 star hotel is perfectly located for aquarium and other attractions around that vicinity. Shopping centre and good cafes close by and can find free parking in nearby streets. Walkable distance to old city (1/2 hour) but transport readily available.
Reasonable accommodation and facilities for price.

Brilliant staff, offered us great advise and were always very helpful. Our room over looked the city of arts and sciences, and even though the hotel is near a busy roundabout you cannot heathins pins in your room. It also has one of the most comfortable beds I've ever sleep in. Highly recommended.

Hotel is central to the sights of Valencia and excellent to commute to the beach or the old town on the bus . The room was lovely , the staff very friendly and the room cleaned daily . The breakfast was brilliant whatever your taste from cakes to breads to gorgeous fresh fruit to full cooked breakfast .. Scrambled egg to due for, perfect soft fried eggs , make your own toast .. Bacon is not like English stuff but with so much choice I didn't miss it . We did breakfast abd that kept us going til our evening meal .
Loads of bars and restaurants in the area from tapas and local Spanish bars to English and Irish bars
In a nutshell conveniently located clean economical friendly and highly recommended

First of all, I'd like to clarify I've been there for furniture exhibition out of the high season.Good but not excellent location- still close to the marina, El Corte Ingles and impressive Oceanographic aquarium.The breakfast was not exactly superb for 4 star rated property.Just good enough.
Outdoor swimming pool would be advantage for warmer summer periods but the pool seemed to be looking opposite inattractive resident flats.Very pleasant ride with outside glass elevator suggesting pleasant view of the surrounding area.Convenient bus transport and nice bath accessories set.

Recently returned from a one week stay at his hotel. It is a great location for the City of Arts and Sciences, which is literally 5 mins walk away. The hotel itself is clean and modern and the rooms are good sizes. Staff were excellent and luckily for us spoke good english. Pool area was good.
The location is good if you want a quiet area. Locally there is good selection of local bars and restuarants, but i got the impression it was more for locals than tourists. Try "La Taberna", just next door to the hotel (cheap drinks). There is also a good shopping centre within 2 mins walk, and the park area around the City of Arts and Sciences is very nice to walk around in.

The only bad things i can think of is that the hotel needs more beds around the pool area, even 3 or 4 extra would do, the one pillow you get is way too flat, and the walls are very very thin, nothing that caused

Number 19 bus stops on the road next to the hotel and takes you to the beach or into the old town, so good transport links.

Did walk to the beach one day but not again (a good 30 mins) and probably about the same to the old town.

Great hotel in a nice, friendly and what seemed to be a safe city. Great beaches. The only thing about Valencia is that (in my opinion) it lacks the star attractions of say a Barcelona or a Madrid, but its pretty cheap to get to, and decent food and drink prices to.

Book this hotel if you want to avoid the old town crowds and be near(er) the beach and the City of Arts and Sciences.

Would stay again.
