Close to the airport, but no air conditioning
Posted Mar 11, 2017
Set in the middle of an industrial complex, the clean hotel foyer is a welcome respite, especially after many hours of travelling. The hotel is very close to the airport, so we decided to walk. While possible, this is not recommended as their are sections with no footpaths and you'll end up running across freeways. Upon checking in, it was 27°C outside and our room was uncomfortably hot. Switching the air conditioning unit on in any mode simply blew hot air into the room which then became a furnace. Interestingly the fridge was also warm. I went to reception where I was informed that in "winter" (mid-March), the air conditioning is set to only heat, not cool. I was told I should turn it off and the window and the door. However, the window was a casement style which only opens a tiny fraction. With the door open (guests filing past looking in quizzically), this did have the effect of drawing in the cigarette smoke from the courtyard outside our room which was a favourite spot for staff and guests to smoke, day and night. Given the taxi to the airport is a flat 10 Euro fee for the 2 minute drive, next time in Valencia, I will stay in a different hotel, slightly further from the airport.
