“Excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

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.

We have just been for a weekend in Valencia. Our main goal was to visit la Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias, so we chose an hotel around there. The Melia Valencia is a very big hotel, sometimes we had to wait quite a bit for one of the elevators, but the rooms are spacious and clean, and breakfast was very good. We definitely recommend it, especially for its location.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone unless the were on a business trip. It certainly is not the place to go back to after a hot sight seeing trip around Valencia. The air conditioning may work efficiently in the lobby, but in the bedrooms which can only be described as basic , it is non existent ! The lobby area is dark and uninviting with a lack of comfortable seating .
We were unable to access the small out side courtyard for 2 evenings due to private functiions, making it impossible to find somewhere comfortable for relaxing drink.
The bedrooms are very 'Ikea ' like . Our room had lots of annoying faults , doors not running on the wardrobes, the bathroom sink not draining and poor air con to name a few.

Stayed from 23 to 28 August. Staff excellent, rooms quiet and comfortable, B&B option was very good and refreshed / updated regularly. Hotel is pretty central and most of the Valencian attractions are within easy reach. Bus service is excellent - advise getting a tourist pass for free bus/tram/metro tickets as well as discounts on a number of attractions.

hotel looks nice from the outside.
you come in the lobby and that looks great also.
then you get of the elevator and then it is a bit disapointing.
carpets not clean, room not so clean and a lot of stuff broken.
not a lot off international tv stations.
spa looks really nice but expensive, fitness was free and really good!
breakfast was ok, they had gluten free bread.

worst thing about this hotel was the reception, only one employe.
had to wait a long time and they don't answer the phone
