This is a standard old type HIE hotel (we have recently stayed in several new style HIEs which are really very good), very basic but clean and good value for money. The room size is only good for 1 or 2 occupants. With a rollout bed there is absolutely no room. I have read in their feedback to previous reviews that it is their standard room size but many times we stayed in bigger rooms in HIE hotels. Breakfast is also very standard for HIE. We are not big eaters in the morning and for us it was quite good in terms of food variety and quality. The breakfast area size is not enough for the occupancy they have, therefore they give you a slot at check-in which is not bad when you travel on business and can predict what time you will have breakfast but no good if you are on holidays with children especially with the time difference we had. So we had breakfast in the hotel only once. But they have some cafes in the area where you can have a relaxed breakfast any time you want.
I can recommend this hotel for a short stay only and only if you prefer to be near the City of Arts and Sciences or you need to collect or spend IHG points. If none of that I would recommend staying either in the downtown Valencia or near the beach. We went in both directions with public transport and found it not very convenient.
