    Lovely bathroom. Dining room very small and there wasnt enough room for all guests. Breakfast was basic, but ok for €3.50. Staff friendly and helpful. Close to public transport.

        For sea and beach party lovers

        Our stay overall was really cool. We arrived early, dropped the bags and got to enjoy sightseeing around. Hotel has really great view to Marina! The room is small, but has everything to make stay comfortable. We had twin bed and convertible sofa for two people and we decided to sleep one on each instead of sharing pretty tiny bed. Stuff was friendly and helpful, they replied to requests we had in a fast and welcoming manner. Hotel location is perfect for those mostly interested in the beach and Art museum. If you’d like to explore Old Town Area it’s a bit of a walk - around 45-50 min - or a short cab ride(we did both). There are few supermarkets around hotel where you can buy water, fruits and other stuff. At hotel they provide tea and coffee. Also, it’s walking distance to beach clubs for those who likes to party. In general we had a very pleasant stay and would like to come back some day. Thanks!

          Smelly room and in bad neighborhood

          The Hostal Balcon al mar is about a 15 minute walk to the beach so I thought it would be a nice place to stay on our one night in Valencia. Next time I will look for a place on the beach. The area the hotel is located in is a bit scary. The entrance to the hotel is on a side street and does not look like a hotel entrance. The sign does not say "Hostal Balcon al mar" - just "Balcon al mar" so I didn't realize at first that was the entrance. Reception is on the first floor (up 1 level from ground floor). The people at Reception were very nice. When we got to the room the layout was OK but the room smelled from being damp & not leaving the AC on. The room had a balcony with a table & 2 chairs. We sat on the balcony & then realized the balcony next to ours was cracked & coming off the wall - that was the end of enjoying the balcony. They said it was safe to park on the street but we didn't feel comfortable doing that so we parked in a public parking garage. I would not recommend staying at Hostal Balcon al mar!
