Serranos 17, Apt 1 (Front apt)
average rating of 4.470588 based on 17 reviews

Comfortable, well designed but noisy.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is extremely conveniently located so we were able to explore everywhere on foot. It is attractively designed but the bathroom is very small and awkward to move in. There is no sound/music equipment apparently due to complaints from neighbours, which is ironic due to the considerable noise from the apartment above - particularly furniture scraping on the floor through the early hours of the morning. There is also a lot of noise from the short term let holiday apartments on the opposite side of the street. All this is a shame as Valencia is a lovely city which exceeded expectations.

Love Valencia!

  • 5 of 5

Great location for the old town and the dry river bed with cycle and running tracks through greenery and flowering trees. Very nice flat, small but absolutely fine for 2. Comfortable beds and good shower. Appreciated being given 2 bath towels each - not everywhere does this! Loved having a small balcony to eat/drink on. Only downside was the 3 flights of stairs, but Nicholas was VERY kind and carried our bags both up and down.

Loved Valencia generally - maybe less stunning than Barcelona architecturally but very charming and also we found it more relaxed. Ate very well indeed without spending a fortune, too.

Great location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully decorated with everything you could need. Nicholas met us when we arrived and showed us round. The balcony had a lovely view of the Torres de Serranos, which is just at the end of the street. The area around the apartment is full of life and is close to lots of tapas bars, restaurants and also the cathedral. You are also only 5 minutes from the Turia park on the old riverbed, which is lovely to walk along and is surprisingly peaceful for being right in the centre of a busy city.

Modernised apartment set in atmospheric El Carmé district with views of Torre de Serranos Tower

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in one of Nicholas' apartments was very comfortable for 3 of us and Nicholas was a very helpful host. On arrival he carried two of our suitcases up the 3 flights of stairs to the apartment. The only air con unit in the apartment wasn't working, but Nicholas immediately bought 2 brand new fans and arranged for the installation of a new air con unit within the week we were there.

He checked on us every couple of days to ensure we were managing to keep cool particularly that we had our 4 year old daughter with us.

Nicholas was a wealth of knowledge with many things and suggested where the nearest swimming pool and vegetarian restaurant were.

The apartment is a short walk away from the Pont de Fusta tram stop and bus stop for the beach and one tram stop away from Club Hipica, which has a lovely clean outdoor swimming pool open 11-7pm daily (June to September) if you can't be bothered to go to the beach.One can also play tennis there (in conjunction with Valenica tennis club) and children from 6 upwards can have riding lessons with the riding club there too. It's a well run yard in the midst of a city.

At the same time all the city's main tourist attractions and shopping are a 10-20 minute walk away.

A lovely location, with the gardens de Turia 5 minutes away so a great place for families too.

Thanks Nicholas

Great, but ........

  • 3 of 5

Having spoken to the owner by phone before we travelled, we knew we were dealing with someone who wanted our business. We struck a deal for 6 days and discovered that the owner would be on our flight from Dublin, eta 23.40. Our plane was almost 3 hours late and our time to meet the landlord became 3.00am. He turned up reliably and happily. We went to bed immediately and reserved examination of the accommodation until the morning.

The Living Room was just as pictured on the website; characterful. The bedrooms were disappointing. The Master had 2 single beds of different heights side by side and the door to the en suite didn't close. The bed linen was fresh and crisp. The second bedroom was tiny; certainly cramped.

Both bathrooms had good fittings.

The location was good despite the 50 steps upwards. All in all good enough.
