Ines was very helpful and efficient. We met outside the apartment at agreed time and once inside she gave me a thorough guide through the apartment and how the local transport works. All information on the city and apartment is in the handbook. Bed was very comfortable. Double glazed windows so nice and quiet. Apartment very well equipped, very clean and everything worked well. Not enough electric lighting in lounge area but we were not there much so it did not bother us. Ines warned me that the electric citric juicer was not working. The following day, she had bought a new one and offered to bring it round. We had no plans to juice oranges so I said there was no need but we appreciated Ines’ efficiency in wanting to put the matter right.
On our first night we went to a recommended restaurant nearby Taberna La Mora. We ate very well with two starters, two mains, one pudding, one glass cava and one bottle wine for 53 euros. Highly recommend the chicken tacos! The second night we went to a great restaurant in Ruzaffa area called (I think) Dos Ensanchos. A little more expensive but delicious food.
Everything is within walking distance of apartment - old town, city of arts and science in the Park. One day we took no.2 bus to beach area and enjoyed a long walk along beach and a look around La Cabanyal area followed by the best paella at la Carmella restaurant.
Ines was very kind on our last day and organised cleaner, new people arriving and us so that we could leave our cases in flat until our departure at 2pm.
A perfect stay!
We enjoyed our stay in Ines home. The bed is comfy and my baby could have a travel cot bed and an high chair upon request. The landlady is extremely polite and she has been quick in resolve inconvenience. I highly recommend this place.
Amazing place with a great mix of character and modern convenience. The appartment was very well designed, simple and chic. Ines was very helpful before and during our stay. We have stayed all over Valencia but this location waso ideal as near station as well as near all the tourist attractions without being right in the old town. As always in Valencia take ear plugs as you are never more than a few feet away from a building being renovated!
Beautiful apartment in a very central location .
The apartment has been modernised so whilst it has maintained its original features it is fitted with very modern appliances.
The apartment was exceptionally clean there was plenty of hot water and there was no shortage of kitchen utensils should you want to do any cooking.
Ines, the owner, was also extremely helpful both prior to us arriving in Valencia and whilst we were there,
Will definitely be booking again for our next trip :0)

We stayed here for 4 nights over the weekend and absolutely loved our stay. We arrived by train and the owner, Ines, was fantastic in advising us the best mode of transport to get to the apartment. We opted for a taxi which cost us around €5 (taxis were pretty cheap) and we were greeted in the apartment by Ines with a map & cold beers. The apartment has everything you would need and is fully equipped as described, it's located on a fairly quiet street but is only a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the city. The air conditioning was amazing & apartment is exactly as pictured. There's also a guestbook with all the information you could need, from bicycle hire to recommended restaurants.
We bought some groceries from the big indoor market which is less than a ten minute walk but there's also a small supermarket just a five minute walk away across the Gran Via.
In terms of nightlife we enjoyed the restaurants near the beach and Plaza de la Reina right next to the cathedral which was a 15 minute walk from the apartment.
Checkout time is 11am but as our train wasn't until 2pm we were able to leave our luggage in the apartment while we went out for the morning - saved carrying it around with us!
Overall we couldn't recommend this apartment enough. It was a great place to come home to and relax after a busy day of sight seeing & we hope to return one day.
