This is a really nice hotel in an excellent location - 10 minutes walk from the Arts and Science Park, 10-15 minutes bus ride to the beach, 20-25 minutes bus journey to the old town, and 45-50 minutes from the airport by metro. Staff were really friendly and helpful and the facilities were pretty good. The outside pool was a bit chilly but had sun until 18:00.
Our room was very clean and quite spacious and had plenty of storage. Wifi was free and reasonable.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
We stayed 5 nights. The hotel is a short walk to the Arts and Science complex which is well worth seeing. Bus service is excellent, #19 stops right at the door - one direction into Old Town, the other direction to the beach. Lots of restaurants close by, also a large shopping center within walking distance. We walked into Old Town through the municipal park that follows the old river bed. It is very scenic and only took about 40 minutes.
Hotel was very comfortable except that there is very poor soundproofing between rooms.
"A new facility in AQUA mall near ocean + museums"
Confusing buildings in a nice mall called AQUA. Aqua 3 and Aqua 4 hotels are 2 buildings next to each other - different pricing. Rooms are new, clean and relatively inexpensive. Internet (good speed) was included along with a decent breakfast. Felt more like a business hotel.
Location - walk to nearby science museum and other cool things. Take a bus along the shore to the city beach which is really nice. Buses are convenient and frequent. Getting to the hotel from the railway station is a bit challenging; recommend a taxi (taxis are very cheap in Valencia for some reason; for a family of 5, sometimes cheaper than metro tickets).
Being in a mall meant lots of food choices were available although our hotel wing did not have a pool that the other seemed to have. Apart from a decent room, no other amenities were available. Reception staff friendly and nice. Valencia has a lot of English speakers so Spanish speaking is not a must. Good shopping - also a large grocery store in the mall.
Not too far from the city center which is absolutely gorgeous with many great places to eat. Our only regret - we should have stayed at least 2-3 days in Valencia! Great place....
I stayed for 2 days and enjoyed myself. The hotel let me rent a bike for a good price and the breakfast was buffet style. My TV did not work, but that inspired me to go to the pool instead. It was verrry cold but I was able to warm up in the sauna. It's a cute place.

This is a difficult review to write. Our second stay in Valencia following our week at NH Centre. So this year we decided on NH but in a different location to get another perspective. We chose VillaCarlos and booked through Expedia. Unfortunately Expedia did not pass on the change in ownership and so some of our plans were thwarted as was plan b. So having discovered by chance that VC was no longer NH we made some enquiries and ever the optimist we set off to Valencia. A little walk from Aragon metro we arrived and as the superior room,the one with balcony was taken,we settled in to room 301 on the front. A little small to what we are used to but with an empty fridge things looked up. The room was quiet, the bathroom good and bed was large enough! So after our initial grump we appreciated its advantages. It is quite central we could walk in to town, and with busses outside Valencia and beyond was near at hand. Number two to the beach, four to the town and no doubt three will take us somewhere. With an EMT card or two,that is another story, we were happy to spend our time at VC. No outdoor area is a down, taxi driver cerveseria helps but a quick walk takes you to Turia park, it is without doubt my number one reason for going to Valencia
