Architecture buffs in search of comfort and convenience are treated to the best of both worlds at the Westin Valencia, a 135-room property with multiple eateries, a spa and conference facilities located just a stone’s throw from the city center. The property offers the Westin’s signature luxuries, like its Heavenly Bed, as well as extras like its very own sushi restaurant, Komori, and a swishy bar, H-Club, perfect for aspiring night owls.
In the Area
Graceful, sunny Valencia, Spain’s third largest city, is known for its art, architecture and ability to stay up late. A 15-minute walk from Valencia’s old town, the Westin is a great jumping off point for visits to city sights like the 13th-century cathedral, the vibrant central market, or the Silk Exchange, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Guests with a rental car can take advantage of coastal Spain’s natural beauty, with visits to the Albufera Nature Park, noted for its many species of birds and its trails. A meal of authentic paella prepared at a beachside cafe is a must.

I am probably being a little unfair but a hotel that claims to meet the highest standards should do so. The service was largely there: certainly the reception staff, cleaning staff, concierge and most of the breakfast staff were excellent. However, the bar staff could have been more efficient and one or two of the staff at breakfast were brusque. The hotel was clean, comfortable and looked like a 5-star hotel should. A beautiful courtyard was enhanced in the evenings by some excellent music. Getting shoved out of our chairs a couple of times was a bit off-putting - I understand that hotels have parties, but it would have been nice if people were a bit nicer about moving us. It would also have been nice if they didn't take over the whole place for those parties leaving only the bar to occupy, especially when its drink and food choices were not 5-star. That is one of the missing things: usually hotels like these have more food choices and, if you don't like Japanese food, you are on to a bit of a loser here. There was a massive amount of space in the hotel that had nothing in it so another restaurant, bar or just a cozy reading space would have been nice. Don't get me wrong, there were some lovely sitting areas around the place but it just felt like they could make more of the massive spaces. Finally, and while the room was comfortable, clean and the private balcony was lovely to have, there were little things wrong such as the bedside light being broken and the wallpaper coming away in places. Having said all that, we still felt we got reasonable value and, while we probably wouldn't stay again, we would recommend to other travellers that they can expect a pretty nice stay here as long as they weren't paying too much for it.
Gorgeous, large rooms. Comfortable beds. Beautiful courtyard in a great area. Nice breakfast buffet. Rented bikes at a company recommended by the concierge and had a great time riding to the City of Arts and Sciences and the beach.
In between our stops between Barcelona and Madrid, we spent 2 days staying at the best hotel in Valencia. Near everything, a great hotel if you like to walk, a great breakfast and a wonderful staff. A true 5 star.
A top hotel it is not. Sure it’s a Westin, but some places have Westin hotels that contend. This one? Not so much.
First, it’s expensive for what you get. Value isn’t there. Second, the WiFi is iffy at best, and connectivity is basic. Third, the food and drink in the hotel is stupidly priced. Not great quality (there is amazing food 10 mins from the front door) and yet top dollar.
The rooms are ok, and cleanliness was on point, but wallpaper falling off the wall, and hardly much water to drink (you can’t drink the tap water), the beds are meh.
It’s not a horrible place, but it isn’t really worth the cost of admission.
