The Palacio Marques de Caro is a charming place located in a 19th century historical palace built on the ancient surrounding walls of Valencia's old town. We are at the heart of the city's history in this boutique hotel with spacious and comfortable rooms and a restaurant offering a superb setting and good value for money. This is one of our favourites places in Valencia.

    Location 7.89 /10

    In Valencia's old town (the remains of the ancient ramparts run through the hotel), the Palacio Marques de Caro is located at 14 calle Almirante, not far from the Jardín del Turia. The airport is 9 mi away with a transfer time of around 20 minutes.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    With a hard grey floor and grey walls, the owners decided to give the guest rooms a boutique hotel-like feel with contemporary decor as opposed to highlighting the charm of the historical palace (except for in the three rooms with a mansard roof and exposed wooden beams). In any case, there's nothing negative to be said about the amenities: a large flat-screen television, a king-size bed, a minibar fridge stocked for free (soda, snacks, chocolate bars, biscuits, crisps, water, orange juice, olives, almonds, etc.), tea and coffee-making facilities, very discreet air-conditioning, a free Wi-Fi connection, room service available 24/7, and a digital-code safe big enough to fit a laptop. The furnishings include a large mirror and a stylish armchair next to a stylish round table. As for the terrace, it has two chairs and looks out over the Roman ruins. The bathroom, open to the bedroom, includes a bathtub, a large shower separated by a glass door, slippers and bathrobes, everything you need to shine your shoes, a hair-dryer, Bulgari brand toiletries, a make-up mirror, a stylish wash basin and a comb. The toilet is in a separate room with a telephone.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    The Palacio Marques de Caro was the palace of the Marquis de Caro in the 19th century. This historical 2-storey (but 5 level) building has 26 guest rooms serviced by 2 lifts. Work to turn this palace into a hotel started in 2006 and finished in February 2012. As soon as you enter the lobby you can feel that you are in a place full of history: a 13th century brick Arabic wall, the remains of the Roman foundations from the 2nd century BC on the ground, explanatory texts on the history of the site, and Roman ruins under the lobby bar. We appreciated this mix of history with the modernity of a boutique hotel with its hushed atmosphere, its original (18th century) white staircase that stands out against the black walls, and its wooden terrace with an area for lounging. There is a skylight above the staircase where natural green moss adds a welcome touch of nature. In just about every corner you can see an archaeological item, an antique, ceramics and 18th century azulejo tiles; in short, this hotel is a veritable museum! The library is particularly charming, with its wooden period ceiling (from the 19th century) and its original walls (the remains of the 13th century Arabic wall). Even the toilets are original, with urinals with a lid, sensor lights, black steps (be careful you don't fall), and a large mirror on the right (which might take you by surprise as it is the first thing you will see).

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    The Alma del Temple restaurant has its own entrance set back from the street and attracts many locals, who come for the tasty but affordable food (a starter, main, dessert, beverage and coffee for £16). The American chef makes Mediterranean dishes for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday (the restaurant is closed from Sunday to Tuesday). However, it is open every day for lunch (from 1:30pm to 3:30pm). The great thing about this restaurant is its original setting, among the 12th century Arabic fortifications that mark out the limits of the city. Guests dine comfortably seated in a superb dining room that can accommodate up to 70 people, with jazz music playing in the background and a very diverse wine menu to choose from. Served from 7:30am to 10:30am, breakfast is a gastronomic buffet feast(but also with à la carte choices) with show cooking and freshly-squeezed orange juice. Painting exhibitions are regularly organised. The arched stone door dates from the 13th century.

    To know

    The Wi-Fi Internet access is free throughout the establishment. Since the building is listed as a historical monument, it is impossible to do any construction work on it (to add a swimming pool or a sauna, for example). If you are coming by car, you can use the car park for around £22 per day. There is a conference room that can accommodate approximately 20 people. Room service is available 24/7. One room has been adapted for guests with reduced mobility.

      All at once simple, convenient and well placed, the Ad Hoc is a pleasant 3-star hotel. With their high ceilings, the rooms on the second floor are very spacious. The mix of wood and brick proves particularly attractive.

      A good reason to stay at the Catalonia Excelsior hotel is its location, at the heart of Valencia. Simple, small and with few amenities, it could definitely do with some modernizing.

      This is one of the oldest traditional hotels in Valencia, and the facade and building are magnificent. The service is decent and the geographical location ideal, but the hotel's classic and rather unoriginal interior is a bit of a disappointment.

      This 3 star hotel located in the Campanar region is not particularly noteworthy for its originality, or its modernity for that matter. The hotel has been open since 1984 and the guest rooms bear obvious witness to this. Having said that, it does have two advantages, namely the swimming pool and the rooftop terrace, which offers fine views across the town.

      This urban hotel has the advantage of being a modern establishment that offers rooms for those with reduced mobility and that is close to the City of Arts and Science. This is the second largest hotel in the Confortel Aqua range and although it offers less in the way of services and facilities than its neighbour, it is nevertheless perfectly comfortable.

      A modest urban hotel with good deals for families, including a free stay for the first child under 12 years of age. Also on the plus side, the hotel has a swimming pool. In general though, the facilities here are basic and the guest rooms rather rustic.

      Located in an authentic Valencian seaside resort, the Las Arenas Hotel (the only 5 star luxury hotel in the region) has an amazing spa, both in terms of its history and of what it has to offer. Also worthy of mention are its state-of-the-art fitness centre and its restaurant, the Sorolla. It only seems natural that these fantastic assets have earned this hotel a spot in the prestigious Leading Hotels of The World.

We really liked its restaurant surrounded by a terrace and a garden, as well as the spa offering 5 different specialities. An ideal place to stay to discover Valencia in a pleasant setting where well-being and gastronomy are part of the offer.

      The Holiday Inn Valencia is a great place for a city break in Valencia. You will have to walk a bit to reach the metro, the old town, the beach and the City of Arts and Sciences, but you will be able to enjoy a good breakfast here and be very comfortable. We recommend that you come between May and September, as the rooms can be a little cold in winter and the rooftop swimming pool is closed outside of this period. You will also appreciate the relaxed lounge bar on the sun terrace on the top floor.
