Good value for money

We were impressed with the Villacarlos especially as they had remembered our request made by email some time ago for a room on one of the higher floors with a street view. It is a budget hotel but would come top of the list as everything provided was of the highest quality. Shampoo, shower gel and soap are provided and replaced as they are used and the room is cleaned, tidied and towels replaced everyday. They do not provide a kettle and tea making facilities but we took a travel kettle and provided our own. There is a fridge in the room which proved very useful for keeping the milk fresh. Our package did not include breakfast but we had it everyday (at a cost of 8.10 euros if ordered in advance) as it was so good and set us up for the day.
There a few restaurants within walking distance. We ate at Cerveceria Tapis which is just around the corner on the Carrer d'Eduard Bosca. The food was really tasty and economical and we liked it so much we went back a second night. We also ate at a Chinese restaurant called Tiananmen also close to the hotel (just off the Carrer de Josep Faus). The food was good and healthy but don't order all your courses at once - you'll get them all at once! Another night we caught a bus to the beach area (number 2) and ate at Pepitos. It seems to be a popular place but we didn't rate the food very highly.
The hotel is well placed for walking into town - we did it every time - but it is too far to walk to the beach (however the buses are very frequent).
We spent one of our days travelling to Sagunto by train where we walked up to the castle and Ampitheatre - well worth the visit.
We loved Hotel Villacarlos and would definitely stay there again.
