Great location. Great Experience
If you want a hotel that is walking distance to the main old town, the restaurants, and be in the center of beautiful Valencia, consider the Ayre Astoria. We got a "pre-season" bargain of less than $100 per night, and admittedly were a bit tepid about what we'd find base on the price. We were mildly shocked at how nice of a place we found -- with a super location! There is sometimes a bit of late morning street noise, and if you sleep late the workers are a bit noisy. But that was minor. I cannot say how pleased we were with what we got for our money. We are seasoned travelers of Europe, and I'd lived in Europe for 5 years on business. So I know a good hotel from another. Staff was very good in English and about as friendly as can be (and helpful). Was it perfect? No. Was it outstanding and high quality for what we paid? Absolutely. For this quality I'd have expected to pay twice as much, and still would have thought it reasonable.
