Perfect location & friendly staff

The hotel Is situated in the perfect area for exploring the whole city. Just off the plaza de ayuntamiento you are in the heart of the the city, close to everything.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. Make sure you ask Jesus at front of house for his great restaurant recommendations. We wanted good quality, typical Spanish and non touristy food. We were not disappointed.
Taxi from the airport to the hotel is about €20 and takes 20mins. Taxi from the hotel to the beach at malvarossa is about €11
Valencia is really flat and easy for Biking or walking everywhere. Even my parents who are in there 60s and aren't used to city breaks found it very comfortable getting around.
The hotel was lovely but could do with updating their classic rooms, although they'd were nice they are rather tired and wouldn't really be improved with a bit of fixing up.
Also the hotel doesn't have any irons available, even for hire. Everything has to be sent through their laundry service. I'm not a fan of people ironging my clothes as some can be delicate and at €5.50 per item and having to drop them off the night before, it's a bit inconvenient for city breakers.
The breakfast restaurant is lovely on the 9th floor, great views and lots of choice. We used just once.
I was going to book the vincchi lyes hotel, I loved their decor online but when seeing it while there, this hotel is in a better location.
Lovely little square below the hotel with a few bars, stops for drinks!
