Recent guest reviews

This was our first visit to Valencia so we were unsure where to stay but decided on the Hospes as we had stayed at the one in Alicante a few years ago. We took the metro from the airport and easily found the hotel a short walk from Alameda station. We found this really easy, we only had hand luggage as it was only a 3 night stay and it may have been more difficult with lots of luggage. The metro was really good value, we bought a ticket loaded with 10 euros and didn't use it all despite a trip to the beach and back. We had to get a taxi back to the airport due to the time of day (early morning) and this was about 25 euros. Back to the hotel, this was in a similar style to the one in Alicante, an old building but very contemporary inside. The greeting at reception was friendly and we were given a map and lots of useful information which we really appreciated as first time visitors. We had a room at the front of the hotel looking out onto the main road and were initially afraid there may be a noise issue (please see our review of the Hospes in Alicante) however our fears were unfounded as this hotel had fantastic soundproofing and once the balcony door was closed you could not hear anything from outside. The room was a reasonable size with lots of wardrobe space. There was an umbrella, robes and slippers, a safe and a minibar as you would expect from a 5 star hotel. There were tea and coffee making facilities and bottles of water and chocolates each day at turndown. The bed was comfortable and we slept really well. The bathroom was large with a trough style sink, a huge roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. The location of the hotel is great, minutes from one of the main shopping streets (Carrer de Colon) and a short walk gets you to many restaurants many with outside seating. It's also a short walk to the park and a short bus ride to the City of Arts and Sciences. We didn't eat in the hotel at all so can't comment on this although the restaurant looked good. There were plenty of places to eat a short walk away and we found a great place for breakfast - La Rollerie on Carrer de Ribera. We particularly enjoyed Pintxo i Trago in Placa Redona for Pintxos and Tapas. The hotel has a spa but we didn't get opportunity to use this as our stay was so short and we wanted to explore Valencia. All in all we had a fantastic stay in this beautiful city and can't wait to return. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Hospes again.

The hotel is lovely and the service is excellent. I would still rate the room as a 4 star hotel and not 5 star. The size of the room for the paid price was a bit small (my mother however got an upgrade to a bigger room for free which was very nice). There are not enough wall hooks to hang the coats or at the bathroom for the towels. The wardrobes could have been bigger. The spa is lovely, a bit tiny but nice.I was missing a jar of water at the spa, specially after taking a sauna. Drinking water should be offered at the spa. The breakfast buffet was very good, plenty of choice but again, for a 5 star hotel I missed having an offer of other bread types than just wheat such as spelt or rye. Gluten free bread could be baked upon request but the quality was not very good. The location is very good and the service was excellent. Very helpful and friendly staff. I appreciated getting a bottle of water every evening and my daughter appreciated the chocolates. The bed sheets are just amazing. It's definitely a good place to stay, however it would be nicer if the above mentioned issues would be solved since the price is set according to a 5 star hotel.

I would rate the rooms in the main building as 4* not 5. The stained floorboards are quite slippery even wearing slippers so beware. The rooms at the front overlook a busy road. The hotel is in a good position if you want to walk through the park and it's a wonderful space to spend time. You can also walk to the science parc in about 30 minutes . The staff were kind. The spa is very small and too warm to sit and read so we didn't use it. I have stayed in better 4 star hotels in Spain. I didn't think it was worth the extra cost.

We visited Valencia for a City break and we had enjoyed the Hospes in Seville so much that we booked the Hospes here for 4 nights and what a wonderful stay From the warm welcome to sorting out our departure transport - all the staff are so friendly, knowledgeable and professional you can't fault anyone The rooms are quiet spacious (superior) and great large bathroom with superb shower. Rooms are functional and modern No AC on as its still their winter but was 25-30 degs outside so had to have windows open at night The breakfast choice is vast Inc a la carte cooked to order and the quality was very good We also ate in the Ampara restaurant one evening and had the Tasting menu that was 6 courses and absolutely fabulous. Superb service Great location as not far from most sights and also many restaurants close by Very close to the lovely park in the old river bed Would not hesitate to recommend here and would certainly stay again

Overall we had a great experience at this hotel. The location is fab, far enough away from the noise and hustle and bustle but only a short walk into the main old town and the restaurants. A beautiful old building with a very sleek interior. Greeted warmly on arrival and must say the staff were lovely throughout our 5 day stay. Breakfast, for us, was ideal nice selection. As a previous reviewer said the rooms are pretty minimal but functional and clean. We used the spa a few times and it was fine. Would stay here again, thank you!

A grand nineteenth century manor home recycled into an elegant and comfortable 5-star hotel in a prime location on the fringe of Valencia’s old city sounds good and this hotel has much to recommend it but there are a number of shortcomings that deprive it of one star and a couple more that take care of another. The good: a stylish and welcoming entry, exceptionally gracious and proficient front desk with good English. Our deluxe double room (211) was modern, quiet, comfortable, spacious and mostly clean. Everything expected was there and it mostly worked as expected. The king bed (actually, two large singles combined) was comfortable, the linens plush and there were enough pillows for each of us to find a favourite. The bathroom is similarly modern, spacious and well-appointed. The included Wifi worked OK on all our devices although the upload speed was lethargic. The included breakfast was a small but adequate and well serviced buffet taken in the hotel’s Ampar restaurant. We also had one dinner in the restaurant which was well up to expectations with delicious meals, a fair wine selection and very attentive service. The not so good: the deluxe guest room décor was, well, austere. Indeed, the single item in the room that could pass for ornamentation was a small vase with a few dried floral sprigs. With stark white walls, dark wood flooring, a high ceiling and recessed wall-wash lighting it had the ambience of a contemporary art gallery and not a hotel room – but the only exhibit on any wall in the room was a solitary diminutive flatscreen TV. For our room at least the outlook was dreary yet there was nothing within to attract any interest. Some of the fittings and furnishings bore a patina of age not expected in a 5-star establishment. Overall, it wasn’t offensive but it also wasn’t very agreeable either. The bad: The shower water pressure was anaemic and the bath towels may have been luxuriant once but are not now. The wine glasses in our room were soiled which had been exacerbated by a perfunctory attempt at cleaning. We wondered what else that we hadn't noticed that might have been as poorly cleaned . Need to know: parking in central Valencia is a problem and although the hotel has its own parking garage accessed from another street there is no place out front to park and unload unless you mount the sidewalk and block the adjoining driveway or stop on Avenida Navarro Reverter and ignore the protesting traffic. Once alerted, the hotel staff will quickly come to your rescue and garage the car @ €26 / night Summary: it’s not a 5-star experience and even 4 is a star too far.

Hospes is a great place to stay in Valencia, the hotel staff were great helpful in every way from explaining the best sites to see and giving tips on which days to visit which attractions. Sundays for example you can go to the museums for Free!! Food was great we had a wonderful breakfast. Throughly recommend staying here ... its about a 12 min walk into the main square.

What a fantastic hotel ! Attentive welcoming staff, great location, comfy beds, spacious bright rooms ! From the welcome drink and sweets on arrival to the complimentary spa it is the perfect hotel for a visit to Valencia !

We stayed for one night and enjoyed our stay. Our room was quiet, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The hotel is in a central location, close by the Turia gardens and Colon market in a safe, up market area. All the staff we encountered were friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We had booked parking at the hotel which was easy to find and secure. As we had made our reservation directly with the hotel, parking was free and we were allowed to park early on the first day, dropping our bags off and leaving the car until late afternoon on the second day which was a great help. Happy to recommend a stay here.

We spent 5 days in Valencia and found the Hotel location perfect for walking tours to both the old city and the Science Park. The Hotel Staff were particularly helpful and their recommendations for Restaurants were superb
