This hotel has a great location, is clean, and has nice amenities, however, it is far from the quality one would expect for the price of the accommodations.
The rooms were nice because they were clean and well kept. Each room had a temperature control that was able to cool the room off quickly. The bathrooms had the sinks located outside of the shower and toilet area which allows for two people to use the bathroom simultaneously. The hotel is located only a few steps away from the bus stop that takes you to Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias. It is also a short distance from the city center where all the food and activity is.
The value of the hotel is its biggest flaw. There was no breakfast included in our rate, and we were told it was 15 euros per person. The first morning we decided to try it, but at breakfast we were charged 20 euros a person. The food was pretty good, but there was not enough variety and the quality was not what one would expect for 20 euros per person. The only coffee they had was from an instant coffee machine. The hotel also had a very limited workout room with only a few machines. The desk clerks were very nice, but they did not have a very good knowledge of the city and led us astray a few times. We were on the fourth floor and had a balcony that faced the street. The hotel lights shined directly into the sleeping area of the room. The last thing seems pretty trivial, but it was a nuisance none the less. The wifi required an username and password with each use. That means if your cellphone's display goes to sleep, you would have to relaunch your internet browser and sign in again before using the internet. The wifi would cut out frequently up on the fourth floor since we were slightly out of range, forcing us to step into the hall to use the internet. For a room that cost as much as it did, I expected a better overall experience.
