I didn´t stay in this hostel, however, in the one that we stay in Valencia, The Purple Nest, they advertised well, so here are the details in case someone would like to go and try it :-)
On a foot distance from city centre, it's located in a quite street, regular rooms are very large and have jacuzzi as well. Breakfast has a large offer, receptionists are very kind. They rent also bikes, but one was in a very bad shape.
STAYED HERE 18 -22 MAY2010 FROM THE OUTSIDE U THINK OH NO BUT WHEN U SEE INSIDE IT IS SPOTLESSLY CLEAN. FRIENDLY STAFF AND OWNER .24 HR RECEPTION ,CLEAN TOWELS EVERY DAY .ONLY THERE 4 NIGHTS BUT SHEETS CHANGED ON 3RD MORNING .10 MINS TO BEACH 2MINS TO PORT ,THE ROOM WE WERE IN OVERLOOKED A BEAUTIFUL GREEN AREA .ON A MAIN ROAD BUT AT NIGHT NO TRAFFIC . WE RECOMEND THIS HOSTAL HIGHLY ,WE R IN OUR 50S BUT RECCOMEND THIS TO ALL AGES .IT ALSO HAS A LIFT .
We looked for a central, small, and stylish place on TripAdvisor and found: http://www.valenciamansion.com/ . What a gem! A great Victorian Villa, just next to the cathedral at Plaza de la Virgen in the bohemian Barrio del Carmen. This bed and breakfast in Valencia seems to come straight from the pages of Wallpaper Magazine. Five star Champagne breakfast, everything around the corner and a very tasteful design, slightly over a youth hostal rate.It felt like staying at a good friends place, but still plenty of privacy.
Central. Smart decoration with art and design, some ironic and quirky local art. Amazing library and a five star breakfast with Champagne. Note: minibar is fully stocked and contribution is VOLUNTARY. Wow, are they mad? What an example!
Hotel Casa Babel is totally different and quite exceptional as a building hidden away in the quiet back streets of Villalonga. The hotel only opened a year ago after 5 years painstaking restoration.
The restoration has been to a very high standard with very extensive use of hand made tiles on floors, staircases and walls. Many of these tiles have been specially made for the hotel. The result is a stunning building inside with spacious public rooms, including reception hall, lounges, library, spa, dramatic staircases and dining room with very comfortable suites and bedrooms.
The hotel is beautifully furnished with many antiques. The bedroom rates are explained below:
- Standard room: 70 € (in an attached building to the hotel).
- Mini suites: 93 €
- Junior suites: 105 € ( incluyes mini bar)
- Master suites: 130 €( incluyes mini bar)
The room rates incluye breakfast and turn down service in the Hotel. Price per couple per night.
An incredible service, all the staff work with love.
Peace and harmony is the base of that hotel.
Home made spanish cooking
Just like a dream
If you are not a person who cares for the stars a hotel has however are looking for quality and price at the same time, this is your place to stay. Sidrome hotels are a new chain of budget hotels of Spain offering very good quality at attractive costs. They have rates that go from 36 Euros per night plus VAT.
The property in Valencia is not located in the city center. It is more an airport hotel, situated within 5 kilometres of the Valencia Manises airport in a locality called Paterna. For transport in and around Valencia City and its major attractions you might have to depend on public transport or a rented car.
Amongst other facilities this hotel offers free WI-FI and free parking for all its guests. The hotel rate does not include breakfast which is at an additional cost of around 5 Euros for a buffet breakfast. Well worth it. Go for the deal - its value for money.
Economic - very functional - modern
We had booked this apartment through www.niumba.com and were very satisfied with everything! This website offers quite a selection of apartments, good information and once you are interested, they connect you directly with the owner of the apartment.
Natalia, the owner of our apartment was very friendly and very helpful and answered all our emails very quickly! We did have to pay a depostit of 200 €, which we got back on the day of our departure.
The absolute top quality of the apartment is its superb location! It is located next to the Serrano Towers in the old part of Valencia, which means, everything in the old part is walkable! Plus there are two bus stops just a few meters away from the apartment and Metro and Tram stops in a radius of a 15 minute walk.
The apartment itself is on the 3rd floor (good exercise, indeed!) and is on two levels: the one level has a combined kitchen and living room (with a sleep sofa) and the bathroom. From this level you have to climb a rather steep spiral staircase to the bedroom.
Everything is very clean and nicely furnished, there were just a few things that kept us from being 5star satisfied: the bathroom door could not be closed and the kitchen equipment was a little scarce: no can opener, no corkscrew, no bowls and cutting board - and no toilet paper. We did manage, though, and this definitely did not spoil the fun of staying here! Just if you need a VERY quiet place, you might try to find another apartment, because Serranos Street and El Carmen district are lively - with bars, restaurants and shops!
We would go back here again!
We parked our (Avis's) brand new Alfa Romeo in underground parking downtown Valencia. It was a giant parking with tiny, tiny spaces between masive concrete columns....bbrrrr.
We got out on the street level and started looking for hotel. After few blocks we came upon Hotel Valincia **. The hotel was just renovated with marble floor and walls, however there was a smell of the sewage system in the lobby. I guess that is the way the sewage system operates in teh old town as Valencia.
We rented room for 3 with no problem right on the spot.
Hotel was sparkling clean and shiny. Our room looked very fresh, and bathroom was actually very big. AC was very strong. There was an elevator (tiny) so we did not had to drag our bags upstairs. Our room was overlooking......nothing, so we kept the courtains on. I am sure there were much nicer rooms overlooking the quiet street the hotel was located on. We didn't care about the view since we were there for only one night.
Hotel is located close to all downtown atractions. Next morning before we leave we went to the famous local market for breakfast ( it was also close by). Hotel has really great location if you are to see all downtown museums and magnificent buildings and also of you came by train, since the main train station is only few blocks away.
We would not mind staying in this hotel again however we would ask for the room with the window overlooking the street.
El Rincon can be your HQ during your stay in Valencia. They dont offer much, except the bed:), however they offer it unbelievably cheap. 11Euro per night in 2007. You get a room with a bed, shared bathroom, and what is more important you can sleep in the city centre, near to "El Carmen", the party zone of Valencia. Beyond this you will have free WIFI in the hostel. Great place!
the bartenter in our hostel was tom boonen
no just kidding but he could be a look a like of tommeke
from 19h till 20h happy hour in the bar
An old school next to a church turned into a good youth hostel with lovely staff. Dorm or private rooms. Shared bathrooms, one on each floor. Shared kitchen, large and well equipped. Safety box. Internet access. Bed linen included in price. I'll definitely stay here during my next visit!
Don't consider this place if you have trouble climbing stairs... =P
Nice roof terrace!
I have rent 2 weeks in July throughout their website in order to lodge 5 of my friends. I usually stay at my own flat in the Carmen but my family was also around so i had to find an alternative.
This is the 3rd time i use their service and I can only recommend them. they are highly professionnal and always available in case of problem. My friends lost their keys during their stay and the girl from accommodation-valencia solve the problem within a couple of hours (it was 8pm !) . they didn't charge us any extra for that and the apartment was fabulous. we had another apartment with a terrace in early june and I advise you strongly that type of accommodation. Cheaper and more convienent than a hotel, especially if you are more than 3 guests.
Great location near city of art , oceanografic and museum. Close to restaurants.
Good and pretty new equipment, everything needed is available.
Clean and quite
I went to Valencia last october and I was looking for a flat to rent for a couple of weeks there. I found www.accommodation-valencia.com and I had a large flat with terrace close to the city of science. Perfect, clean and professionnal. I advise it strongly
good location, good services, nice people
We thought it was an idea to staying in Sueca a little town just outside of Valencia city for two reasons:
1) My boyfriend was so tired of driving he was ready to crash the car.
2) We thought it would be cheaper than staying in Valencia
I'm not sure if we picked the right place in the end because it cost a wapping 62€ to stay in a fairly bland one horse town!
The hotel itself was Ok and clearly built for business purposes. The restaurant looked really good with pretty blue and yellow table cloths though the food was a little pricey for us so we decided to try somewhere else. It also had a good cafe bar with a big window at the front looking out onto the nicest square in the whole of Sueca.
The thing that put me off a little was the odd painting of naked women spread around the walls of the hotel. At first I though I had walked into a Puti Club (a house of ill repute).
The handy thing about the hotel is that it is right next to the station so the next day to let my boyfriend off navigating the treacherous path into Valencia city we decided to take the train in and back. It only cost us 4€
HA HA HA HA....big room, private balcony, bathroom in room, bunk beds..HA HA HA HA
