We stayed in a room with a private terrace on floor 7. We paid an extra premium of €18 per night but it was well worth it for the peace and quiet and the privacy. Nice views over the city and very centrally located to all tourist attractions and especially the wonderful restaurants.

Perfect location to explore the city. Right in the center and yet ona relatively small and quiet street. Did not go for the breakfast as it was a bit expensive, there are plenty of small and cosy cafes where you can have one. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends - good price and good service.

Excellent Location. Excellent Price/Quality. Very kind and avalable staff. The hotel is located in the best area, everywhere accessible on foot, and at the same time being in a side street, is quiet. I suggest this hotel fully even for the price which is very cheap but still very good standard. Will definitely go to same hotel if i go back to Valencia.

Non c'è che dire.Ottime stanze,ottimo servizio, ottima collocazione. Per chi dovesse arrivare in auto sconsiglio il parcheggio interrato sito nelle vicinanze dell'hotel, Valencia è piena di strisce blu che sono sicuramente più economiche. Il personale alla reception è molto cordiale e disponibile, qualcuno parla anche l'italiano.Ci sono stanze dotate di terrazzino e il prezzo non cambia,sono più calde all'arrivo ma il condizionatore va una meraviglia. Buone vacanze!

5 giorni in spagna-5alberghi diversi-questo è stato il peggiore.l'aria condizionata inutilizzabile per quanto rumorosa-come se i muri non ci fossero si sente ogni passaggio sul corridoio-il bagno senza bidè-non avevano la camera con il letto matrimoniale da noi richiesto-l'unico fattore positivo:la posizione centrale in città.negativo il rapporto qualità-prezzo.

We stayed during Las Fallas when rates were doubled. Location is excellent - patisserie across the hotel for breakfast pastries, local cafe few doors down for coffee or Starbucks at the end of the lane, bank next to the patisserie. Staff spoke excellent English and are happy to recommend restaurants, etc. Room can be noisy, and close to adjoining office blocks so privacy can be limited. Loved Valencia, and would recommend hotel to anyone.

we stayed during Las Fallas so double glazing essential - and it worked. slight bit of confusion around laundry as there were so many public holidays with easter as well but other than that - fine. we did not have breakfast as that seemed pricey. we ate at less than half the price in local cafes. lots of groups staying.

Nachdem ich mich im Hotel Atenea in Madrid, trotz einiger technischer Mängel, sehr wohl gefühlt habe, war der wenig zuvorkommende und von Misstrauen geprägte Empfang im Excelsior in Valencia eine Enttäuschung. Im Zimmer störte mich vor allem, die Matratze mit Kunststoffüberzug. Wie teuer mich die Internetbenützung zu stehen kommt, werde ich dann der Rechnung meines mobilen Telefons entnehmen können. Die Aufbewahrung des Gepäcks bis am Abend geschah professionell und zuvorkommend.

Their was two single beds in the room however we had booked a double room so was expecting a double bed. On leaving our bill included a phone call costing approx. €2.50, wasn't much but we had not made any phone calls therefore I was not going to pay, lady on desk questioned us and she did cancel it, wasn't the cost but the principle. Hotel was very clean and would return to it if I was ever in Valencia agin, price very resonable.
