“Thee Place to see stay beautiful Valencia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We were looking for something a little more low key and relaxed on this trip so we stayed with Dany & Thijs in their lovely hotel. A place like this really makes me think that people use the phrase "home from home" way too much as it lacks impact when you really need to use it. This really is a Home away from Home. We felt completely relaxed and at ease here and it was like we were staying at friends! Such a great environment to stay in and the energy was great! We had comunal breakfasts around a large table over-looking the Valencian cobbled streets with a fabulous breakfast served up by Dany.(We since learned that dany baked the bread fresh that morning)It wasn't like a typical hotel environment as Dany would serve and then grab a seat and sit and chat which makes the experience very relaxed and personal. We were up bright and early for morning meditation with Thijs which got things off to a great start and we popped into a Yoga class just down the street with a lovel lady they knew- it really was a great experience- cannot really compare it to another trip as they do it so differently and pull off the experience perfectly. We are intended on another trip back and will hopefully make it a regular thing as Valenica is such a gregat city and Dany & Thijs are great hosts x

This was our second visit to Valencia and we choose to return to stay at Valencia Mindfulness Retreat for the second time. We knew we would receive a warm welcome and indeed it felt like we were "home" but with the added luxury of someone else doing the work. We are three couples who holiday together every year and this visit was to experience Las Fallas which was amazing. Las Fallas is exciting, very loud and sometimes scary and going back to Valencia Mindfulness Retreat was like returning to an oasis of calm and peace. Situated in the lovely old part of the city you can walk to many nice cafe's, bars and restaurants which Dany and Thijs will recommend and book for you, In fact when we couldn't find one of the restaurants which they had recommended, Dany even walked round there with us to show us the way. You don't get that level of service in many establishments. Thijs keeps everything spotless, whilst you are having your breakfast he's in your room making your bed and tidying up after you.

You can even slip next door for an in house massage which two of us ladies did - bliss. Thanks guys for a lovely stay once again, wish we were back in your lovely sunny lounge enjoying your hospitality, your honesty bar and your wonderful five star breakfasts.

I stayed for three nights with Dany and Thijs around the time of Las Fallas this year. It was just amazing - such welcoming people, an informal reception and local explanation of Valencia over copious amounts of bubbly. Beautiful rooms, the opportunity to get involved with some meditation and an overall very peaceful, relaxing time. Breakfast is definitely worth braving a hangover for, and they'll even pack you a well thought out lunch if you can't make it.

Thank you guys, I had a great time. See you again soon I hope!

From the moment we arrived at the Mindfulness Retreat, these two gentlemen went all out to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They went over and above all expectations and were a true joy to be with. I was more interested in talking to these two beautiful souls than exploring Valencia!
Dany puts is heart into the breakfasts. The fresh white table cloth is lovingly layered with fruits of all kinds, eggs served in an amazing antique china tiered server, a variety of breads and coissants, including delicious bread that Dany personally baked.
I am not comfortable with elevators, and upon knowing that Mattheijs took my arm and escorted me up or down the stairs whenever I left or returned to the house.
The only downside to the stay there was leaving our wonderful hosts.
In case you are wondering (as I do, when I read reviews) if this is a genuine review: I had never met Dany or Mattheijs before and I am not a family member and was not a friend prior to the visit.
You won't regret choosing Valencia Mindfulness Retreat.

Great location, so close to everything, so easy! The rooms are big and comfy, and breakfast is amazing. We had a lovely time in Valencia, and this bed & breakfast is a small true gem. Dany and Mattias were really helpful in giving us some recommendations on restaurants

I'm writing this review as somewhat of a re-review to help rebuild the online reputation of a bed and breakfast that was once regarded on trip advisor as the best in Valencia. I was speaking with Matthijs earlier this month and he mentioned that business had slowed a little with the recent rebranding to the Valencia Mindfulness Retreat so I offered to jump back onto Trip Advisor and migrate my review, for which I have found, has been completely removed from record. For a business that was built on word of mouth (they don't advertise in any other forum than their simple website) and that really had the luxury of selecting its guests from pools of willing travellers that would apply to stay, this change has essentially removed their presence from trip advisor and has had a profound effect on their patronage.

For a little background. I stayed at the B&B, previously known as the Valencia Mansion, in late 2011 with my brother and a friend. Their place is small, filled with character and so comfortable. Really airy with a great vantage point for early mornings and evenings over the alleyways below.

The service is really what sets this place apart and it just seemed like the guys bent over backwards to ensure that we were as happy as possible. You can tell that the guys love doing what they do and that really made our experience in Valencia. Mattheijs and Kaola made sure they were home to greet us when we arrived, sat us down and offered us all of their local knowledge while we enjoyed a little welcome drink and bite to eat.

Breakfasts every day were unreal and really set us up for great days out. I would reiterate every positive word issued in the reviews below.

As far as location was concerned, I couldn't think of any better. Right around the corner from Plaza del Virgen and much of what Valencia has to offer. It is the most beautiful, historic part of town. Incredibly safe location.

It is also incredibly affordable. You never really feel like this B&B is a business. Lodging is really inexpensive, they have a home bar guarded by their honesty pig and everything from clean luxurious towels to toiletries are supplied. You really feel like you are staying at a close friend's eclectically decorated town house.

I would recommend this place for couples especially, solo travellers and even groups of friends. The style of service is probably not suited for business travellers or families though I'm sure they would be accommodated.

Room Tip: There are only a handful, we liked them all
