Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 6.0 /10

    The hotel enjoys a prime location just 20 minutes from Manises airport, making it perfect for those who want to visit the City of Arts and Sciences. Furthermore, the El Saler shopping centre, offering an extensive range of shops and restaurants, is just opposite the hotel.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    Of the hotel's 100 guest rooms, some have a double bed, others a single, and others still can accommodate a family. Indeed, some of the rooms even have adjoining doors. One of the great benefits of this hotel for families is that the first child under 12 years of age stays free. For the time being, the views are unobstructed, but there are various buildings in the process of being built in the immediate vicinity, so who knows what the landscape will look like a few years from now! The furniture and guest rooms are generally pretty basic, with blue bedspreads, papered walls, a small desk just next to the hair dryer, and a flat screen television. An à la carte television service is available for a charge of £9 for 24 hours. The bathrooms, for their part, feature parquet flooring and all come with a bathtub, though no hospitality products are provided, with the exception of some Dove soap in a dispenser.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The facilities at the Holiday Inn Ciudad de las Ciencias are far more minimalist, as demonstrated by the fact that the reception desk is located in the same room as the cafe and the breakfast room, with drinks, sandwich and ice dispensers just opposite. The hotel's rather basic furniture consists of pink armchairs and wooden coffee tables where you can relax with a drink and watch television. At the other end of this room, you will find the rather small swimming pool, but still, it's there if you want it! It can, in fact, come in rather handy in the middle of the summer when temperatures in Valencia can reach 40 degrees. It is also worth noting that the hotel has 50 parking spaces that are charged at about 10 pounds per day, excluding tax.

    Food and drink 5.95 /10

    A continental buffet breakfast of cold dishes, pastries and various fruit juices is served daily from 7:00am to 10:30am, except on Saturdays and Sundays when it is available until 11:00am. The room can accommodate 67 people. The cafe is open from midday to midnight but there is no actual restaurant at the hotel.

    To know

    Express is the 3 star brand of the Holiday Inn chain of hotels and is generally best-suited to the needs of those just passing through than those planning on spending a holiday here.

      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.

      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.

      The rating of the Kris Cónsul de Mar as a 4 star hotel is surprising considering the size of the rooms and the available services. The building is very pretty and well located but it could definitely do with some refurbishment.

      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.

      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.

      In Valencia's city-centre, the Hospes Palau de la Mar is a boutique hotel set in a 19th-century building. 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.
