Pros: Quiet, understated and relaxing
Cons: Very little as a hotel, some way as a restaurant
Location: See my previous comments
Unpretentious small hotel situated in the old arab quarter, near The Cathedral, museums, a wide variety of restaurants and the central market. The staff on the desk were exceptionally helpful to us first- time- in- Valencia visitors, with good local knowledge and ideas. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably spacious but, in December, the restaurant had a slightly forlorn air and too many

A very Charming small Hotel...Posted Dec 11, 2013
Pros: Most everything
Location: Everything is close. If not just a bus ride away.
This hotel was very charming. Our room was roomy and comfortable. It was a small hotel just the way we like it. It is located in a great spot. Walking distance to plazas, food, bus, shops etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking a bit of a problem. We thought breakfast was included but was not. It was still worth the price.

Superb base for exploring Valencia old townPosted Nov 22, 2013
Pros: Charming building close to old town.
Cons: Better tea and coffee making facilities. There was no coffee or milk.
Location: Too much to write! Buy a guide book - Valencia is fabulous.
The Ad Hoc is a boutique hotel of great character. Spacious rooms and very pleasant staff. It is a charming old building very close (walking distance) to all the old town attractions. A 95 bus leaves 300M away to take you to Science City. The Metro (easy walking distance) can get you to the port. Slight drawbacks: the breakfast is a bit basic (no problem as there are masses of cafes close to) and there are inadequate tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. Otherwise great!

Super convenient boutique style hotel on a budgetPosted Nov 20, 2013
Pros: location, staff, style
Cons: fridge in room, better drinks selection
Location: Great location as already stated. Convenient for walking around the historic centre and park. We hired bikes for two days, great way to get around.
We had a lovely long weekend at the Ad Hoc - good deal from Expedia and well worth the money. The location is right on the edge of the amazing Turia park, and in the old historic part of the city so convenient for just about everything you would want to do and see. The room was on the front of the hotel and pretty quiet, no problems with noise. Facilities in the room were minimal but comfortable: it would have been good to have had a fridge and more choice of drinks (just two teabags all weekend! Otherwise it was spotless and all the hotel staff were really friendly, helpful and polite. We chose not to eat breakfast at the hotel as it wasn't in our deal - 14 euros per person is far too expensive and there are many great local places close by including our favourite 'hole in the wall' joint for less than 10 euros for both of us = fresh orange juice, coffee and baguettes with great service.

Great hotel. Great location.Posted Nov 1, 2013
Pros: A friendly, welcoming hotel with interesting artwork throughout the building. Great central location.
Location: The hotel is situated in a quiet spot on the edge of the old town. Within walking distance of most attractions.
We stayed 3 nights. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Nice comfortable room, nothing too swish or swanky, but all very clean. Great location within easy walking distance of all the sights in the old town. We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel as there are so many great little places to eat nearby. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Excellent location.Posted Oct 30, 2013
Excellent location - right in the old city with easy walk to everything. Also easy 15 minute ride to the beach via tram, bus or cab.

Big disappointmentPosted Oct 8, 2013
Cons: So many things: a) Bad odor in rooms, b) Rooms themselves, c) Bathroom way too small, c) WiFi connectivity, etc., etc.
Location: Location is good for spending time in Old Town although it is overrated in my opinion. There are way better and more comfortable options around.
Expected way more. Rooms are small and not very functional. Bathroom is very small with no space around sink even for one person to put minimum of personal hygiene pieces, while couple must permanently commute between room and bathroom while making sure that just one person at time could fit into bathroom. Rooms have unpleasant moldish odor which is not pleasant at all. If using car, staff would recommend public garage since hotel does not have any, but the garage at rate of 22Euros/day does not allow using Visa/Master card for payment for amount above 45 Euros (equals 2 days of use) despite big signs of Visa card. I learned it on Saturday morning while trying to pay 126 Euros charge while banks are closed. Fortunately I had cash in pocket. Overall, disappointing experience at all levels except for nice staff willing to help.

Beautiful Hotel in ValenciaPosted Sep 4, 2013
Pros: The interiors, comfort, location and staff.
Location: Very near the centre of Valencia, short walk to plazas and cathedral.
Myself and a friend stayed for 2 nights at the Ad Hoc and were very impressed with the quality of the hotel. Exposed brick work and wooden beams, comfortable beds, beautiful furnishings and a great bathroom - it was a beautiful room.

A great hotel in a perfect location.Posted Jul 26, 2013
Pros: Well maintained and beautiful
Cons: No fridge in the room, which is just terrible in summer.
Location: Perfectly located. Taxi was 5 euro from the train station.
A great hotel in a perfect location. It would be nice if there was a fridge in the room.

character to sparePosted Jul 20, 2013
Pros: generous room size - nice french balcony - icy aircon - super shower
Cons: breakfast as extra - but seems to be the norm
Location: 10 minute stroll to cathedral sq. the main hub.
Character to spare with the exposed brickwork & vaulted ceilings. Really nice artwork & antique style furnishings in the rooms , but ultra modern air con & walk in shower, not old school where you needed it to be. Helpful staff & good location in the old town - would return.
