"Excellent location & friendly locals"
Location of this apartment is excellent. Apartment was clean and comfortable. Some rooms a little small but main living space was large enough.
Dear Guest. I'm really pleased that you found my apartment clean and comfortable and enjoyed all the benefits of its great location for enjoying the best of this delightful city. My apartment was in fact fully modernized some six years ago from a three bedroom apartment to two bedrooms which opened up much more living space (double the original size), than is usual for a modern 70's central apartment - interestingly it was quite the 'norm' forty years ago to cram in as many bedrooms for the larger families of the times needs.

"wonderful city with great transport,fabulous sight seeing and days out as well as a beautiful beach."
This apartment was lovely, so relaxing to have extra space to move around and not be 'under each others feet' (as we usually are in a hotel room). My ten yr old loved the british cartoons and disney channel while we loved the privacy of our own bedroom. He said the best part was having his own room and a freezer (the freezer allowed him to have an icecream on the short walk to the tram each day!) Everything in the apartment worked (- unlike the four star hotel we used last yr). Everthing was clean when we arrived (- again unlike the hotel). The 'neighbours' where all Spanish and very nice when we met outside the lift etc. They were also much quieter in a morning so I had a 'lie in' every day - (unheard of for me usually as I am a light sleeper). The air con was only used once when we arrived and we all needed to get used to the 30 degree heat (- it was late September and we had just left Englands rain and cold winds! ) After this we left all the windows open all day and all night and this was far better. Being six floors up has the advantage of being very safe re: security. All in all a great holiday and one we will consider again -we usually go all inclusive in a hotel but this was much more relaxing for all of us, no breakfast time to get up for, no evening meal to get ready for .
Thanks for your kind recommendations - everything is so easy to access from my apartment either by short walks or the cheap easy & efficient modern metro service - to enjoy a lively city centre location and be down at the lovely beach within 15mins. There are not many city's offering such a great combination.

"Comfortable flat, exactly what we were looking for"
We stayed in Valencia for five days in order to see some tourist sights and also attend the Grand Prix. The flat was exactly what we were looking for - under a ten minute walk from the centre, right next to the tram route to take us to the F1 circuit (15 min ride) and was very well equipped to meet our requirements. Would happily recommend it to others - had discussed terms with the owner in advance, was met upon arrival with no problems whatsoever.
Thanks for your kind appraisals - pretty much endorses everything I mention/suggest on the web-page. One recent news update - the bar next door to the entrance of the building has recently been taken over with new management it now offers a great value Asturian menus/tapas 'menu del dia' etc either on the front Palm lined street terrace or within their pleasant bar/authentic taverna dining area - or just pop around for a coffee/beer etc and now take advantage of their Wifi service. Further along the same wide semi-esplanaded Palm lined street there are tradional non-touristy consequently non-tourist priced 'locals' ie; great value; in addition there's a large terraced specialised Valenciano cafe offering extensive range of coffees etc - affable owner likes to put her English to test at any opportunity! - All offer friendliness and excellent value within this central barrio. All owner- managed and like to go the extra mile, with their service etc..
