Reasonable airport hotel, but how to get there..? Jan 30, 2010
This hotel is literally on walking distance from the airport of Valencia, Spain. Well, that is in ideal circumstances: if you arrive on daytime, if it is not too hot or drizzling, if you have no luggage, and if you have carefully studied and double checked how to walk the kilometer or so... Otherwise, it is also ideally located if the free shuttle shows up.
Arriving by car, in the dark, even with GPS is a totally different story. Had to drive into the airport, out of it and back at least four times, and everytime I saw it. But every time I missed the exit to the parallel road along the main airport road. It was really difficult to find out how to get there.
If you have a very early flight then it is practically located. The hotel offers free shuttle service and that works generally well but not all the time. It is a bit of a hit and miss.
The area is a messy industrial zone, which does not feel safe after dark, especially not the side roads (in case you get lost). There are some businesses and bars and some evening shop in these side roads, and a lot of people hanging around outside of the type that do not make the impression that they will volunteer to show you the way.
(But admittedly, I may have been biased by the frustration of not finding the way...).
The outside of the hotel fits perfectly in its environment. It looks also a bit shabby.
Fortunately inside you feel a lot better. It is certainly not a luxury hotel, it is a typical airport hotel. Simple, functional, reasonable rooms and beds, efficient but not too friendly service, but all in all a place where you can have a good sleep, a good, warm shower and an acceptable breakfast.
Actually, that should be all, except that the price is not bad, and having added this: you get what you pay for. Not more and not less.
Use this hotel what it's intended for, don't expect too much and you will be content. Oh, and make a thorough study beforehand how to get there, or make sure to take enough time for using the shuttle.
