Fantastic LocationPosted Sep 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
Really good location in Canovas with all its restaurants and bars, short walk into city centre and metro. Easy to get to beach by bus nearby or metro. Stayed in double room with private bathroom. Room was massive and really nice. Own set of keys to the building so feels like your own apartment although the staff were friendly whenever we needed anything.

Disappointing, overpriced hostelPosted Sep 1, 2011 on Hotels.com
I've been quite lucky as far as choosing accommodation so far, but on my last trip I felt quite disappointed. I chose this particular place based on their prices, and also nice photographs, but it just goes to show how much they can fool you sometimes.. I don't usually like to complain, but I feel I need to point out a few things, in case someone is interested in staying there, just for consideration. 1. They call themselves a B&B, but I would call it just a "Bed", or a hostel. Why just a "Bed"? Purely because breakfast is not served on premises, as they have no dining room or a cafe, and you are given breakfast vouchers to use in a cafe just a short walk away. It's only 5 minutes away, so not a big deal, but for those who like big, hearty breakfasts, it's going to be an unpleasant surprise. 2. It felt like a hostel to me, as most rooms had no en suite bathrooms (mine thankfully did), and there was a tiny shared bathroom in the hallway. It was right next to my room, and every evening I was disturbed by the loud banging of the bathroom doors, as people using that bathroom didn't particularly bother to be quiet. It went on until 3am every night, so I didn't get much sleep either. 3. Going to Valencia in August maybe wasn't the best idea to begin with, as it was extremely hot, but I thought they would be better equipped as far as air conditioning. However, they only provide portable AC coolers, which don't make much difference. I had to keep my on all night long, pointing straight at my bed, to be able to even fall asleep. 4. Any standard and decent B&B will provide basic toiletries, but this one didn't. Thankfully I brought my own, so I didn't have to buy any. 5. And last small thing: they will not store your luggage, if for example you need to leave your room by 11am, but your flight/train does not leave until 6 or 7pm. Any other B&B where I stayed offered this option, and it was never a problem. Here, I had to walk to the Rail Station, and store my luggage there, even though I wasn't even taking the train but flying out, as this was the only place that had luggage storage. Not a huge inconvenience, but still.. All in all, the only really positive feature about this B&B was its location. Nice suburb, and close to everything. I wouldn't recommend it, unless you're travelling on a budget, and don't mind hostel-like conditions.

Wonderful Room, not the best service, will return :)Posted Dec 8, 2010
Not at all what we were expecting upon check-in, but don't let that discount this hotel/hostel. We checked in at 7:30 pm. You have to call them in advance to make sure someone is there to let you in, give you the key, information, etc. We did, and of course we had to be let in by other guests as no staff were present. We soon found out there was one person there that 'worked' for the company, but could not help us and just told us to call the same number we did and that he didn't have the key and could do nothing for us. 20 minutes later the same guy came out and told us that he had the key and could help us, but we had to pay in cash (not credit card). What???? Oh, yea, the credit card machine was broken, as well as the internet for the next day. Managed to find enough euros to pay for one night (paid for the rest of our stay the next morning), was led to our room, which was huge, with a private terrace, a queen bed, and private bathroom. Smelled of sulfur, but that's just the pipes in Spain. Power went off one night and no one could help us...I had to personally go outside, down the hall and find the circuit box for the entire floor and flip the circuit that somehow blew that night to our room. The heater may as well be a freezer for the room. Wasn't very efficient at all. Ok, that's a ton of complaining. I'm still rating the place a 5. WONDERFUL location, minimal service, GREAT breakfast, GREAT rate, and a great stay in Valencia. I will come back!

Perfect Location!Posted Jun 16, 2010
The hotel was in a perfect location to see the sights of Valencia. Across the street is the Mercado de Colon, the main shopping street is two blocks away and the Jardines del Turia are only a block in the opposite direction of the market. It is a very short walk to both the Cathedral at city center, the museum and the City of the Arts and Sciences. The hotel is located in an attractive building and it is very clean and modern. Staff was extremely helpful and accomodating!
