This was formerly the Melia (and is still known as such by taxi drivers) but is now managed by the Urbem hotel group. This hotel has a wonderful location - 5 minute walk to the Jardines de Turia and the Science Museum, 5 minutes further to the Oceanographic. There is a bus right outside which goes into town or to the port - you can also walk to the port. Directly opposite the Aqua shopping centre which has cafes and a supermarket and also next door to El Corte Ingles 8 floor department store with another supermarket (taxi rank here). The open top bus stops nearby so you can use this as well (good value combined ticket with the Bioparc). As someone else has mentioned they need more staff on reception as you have to wait a long time whilst they take phone calls. My bedroom was amazing in that the air conditioning stayed on when you took the room key out of the electricity holder - lovely to come back to a cool room. I also had a view over the City of Arts and Sciences. There is a mini bar (no prices) which is handy for storing your own drinks. No shower gel/shower hat or flannels in the bathroom which is strange for a 4 star hotel - there is however soap, shampoo, conditioner, body milk, bath gel and tissues. Very few English TV channels. Ample breakfast buffet and a new Nespresso coffee machine arrived during the week which was good for getting hot water for tea. I loved the Danish pastries, fresh fruit and fresh orange juice. Don't forget to try the horchata. I only ate in the restaurant one evening. Service was quite slow because of a large party but the food very nice and not overpriced. The wine was very good value. I think the restaurant might be closed on Sundays. There is a terrace garden outside away from the road where you can sit and enjoy a drink. There is so much to go see in Valencia I need to go back. I hope I will be able to afford to stay here again because it was a lovely relaxing place to stay.
