Just back from a short break in Valencia with two friends, my review pretty much echoes earlier ones, very good value for money, slightly out of the main drag, so taxis really a good idea, but, hey, 5Euros to get into the old town, 7 to Hemisferic etc, it't not going to break the bank. Reception staff lovely, they all speak perfect English, the room was really good, seating area, bed was a tad on the hard side. The old barman in the Lounge bar was a bit of a pain, he could start by maybe smiling a bit, the impression we got was that we were an inconvenience to him, so we didn't go back. A very special mention must go to BAR LA JUMILLA round the corner, it is run by two "Larger than life" brothers, the Tapas was outrageously good! So much so, we came back after having an Indian meal to have a drink, only to find that one of the guys was on his guitar (one of many hanging on the wall) and the other patrons were singing along, a fantastic atmosphere! Flamenco dancing on Saturdays but we were midweek travellers so didn't see that, please pay this bar a visit, AN ABSOLUTE MUST!
