Well established city centre residential location just 690m semi-pedestrianised direct walk via the historic Serranos bridge via the imposing & magnificent 14th century Torres de Serranos - Historic city's main entrance - directly to the Historic quarters & city's liveliest,' most happening cosmopolitan quarter of Carmen.

This charming bright, south facing balconied apartment is on the 5th floor of a well maintained residential purpose built block. Imposing 80's styled redecorated marbled tiled foyer leading to stairwell and super efficient dual lifts service.

Two fully redecorated & partially refitted late 2014 double bedrooms one with variable speed ceiling fan (up-draft & down-draft) the other with variable speed high-velocity fan. Both have double-glazed windows & overlook a quiet inner *light-well - invariably creating a highly efficient through-draft effect, thus drawing air throughout the entire apartment.

Bedrooms and all living room windows benefit from full drop-down integral shutters (obscuring all day-light & minimizes heat convection - adjustable to allow air-flow at night). Spacious 24 m2 pleasantly bright (natural light) south facing living/dining area with 'eco' 2.5Kw reverse cycle Hot & Cold air-conditioning. Full entertainment systems ie; music centre, wide-screen TV with Spanish to English option & DVD player.

Enchanting 'eye-of- the-sun' balcony with convenient easy sliding 4-piece double-glazed 'panoramic' windows. Pleasant open aspects over wide verdant Palm tree lined avenue. Fully equipped kitchen with plenty of storage space etc. Bathroom with spacious shower enclosure & increased storage space. Unlimited hot water thanks to super efficient 'mains' gas operated boiler - perfect for multiple showers. Drying areas accessible via lifts to roof terrace. Selection of DVDs.

Closest proximity for Historic city for predominantly unrestricted 'on-street' parking - save a small fortune! N.B Valencia's Historic city and its immediate surrounds are quite impossible for parking & notorious for tow-away's €200 +. Access all major motorways ie; Barcelona, Alicante, Madrid within mins using CV 35 & A7 & minimize 00's of lights & complicated one- way systems found elsewhere throughout the city via CV35 to/from A7.

The excellent v.nearby metro/tram (none within Historic city - think fragile ancient buildings etc) & most bus services finish early 23.29 - saving you from wasting your time & money on unnecessary taxis which invariably are quite impossible during the city's numerous fiestas. The city's two most famous C.14 iconic historic buildings are en-route - No more losing your bearings, particularly useful in the early hours or if having left your smartphone behind!

Internet;

Dedicated ADSL broadband internet. No line sharing, no drop outs & unlimited use. Decent speeds ideal for streaming Global TV etc.

Optional 3G roaming for people on the move 4 euro daily.

NB. Confirmation of E.T.A must be made at time of booking or minimum 48 hours before arrival. Upon arrival to city telephone/WhatsApp call to confirm.. This saves any unnecessary waiting about for all.

“This apartment met all our requirements - and more”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2012

We found this apartment by chance when searching the Internet for free parking in Valencia. How glad we were. After a few false starts we managed to park in a perfect spot visible from our balcony. The apartment was clean, well prepared and well equipped, even though we only booked the day before our arrival. David and Javi were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location was ideal within minutes of old town and Turia park. The metro station is round the corner and we bought a card of 10 tickets which made it very easy to go to the seaside and other places. Although we were in a city apartment, the lovely balcony made us feel as though we were in a garden. We were directed to El Bokeito taverna for Wifi access, but it became our favourite place for drinks and tapas.

Many thanks for your kind commendations. Parking around the centre of Valencia can invariably be a nightmare and fortunately with so many closeby streets with nominal restrictions this has to be one of the easier locations without having to fork out extra euros (usually 25€ per 24hours!). El bocaito has really taken off - & rightly so as you confirmed with its excellent value food & friendly service - where you can enjoy the best of offerings at 20-30% less than any comparable El Carmen bar/brasserie offering & 'hook-up'(internet) for the price of a beer/coffee. We're please that you found everything to up to standard and enjoyed relaxing out on the delightful balcony such a bonus. You probably didn't have need to use the living room air-con' as there is always a pleasant breeze throughout the apartment as on the 5th floor, however we have now repaced this elderly unit for a new efficient inverter type (eco-friendly) 'whisper quiet'model as part of our ongoing improvements and intentions to continue offering great value.....

“Great Location... great value comfortable appartment.”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2012

Had a great stay. First trip to Valencia and loved it.The location was perfect for the old town and main attractions. David was very welcoming, helpful and full of information. He was also very accommodating around 'non-standard' arrival and departure times. Having rented apartments before, we particularly appreciated extras such as loo roll, hand soap and washing up liquid... cooking oil etc. Thanks very much David... had a great time.

Many thanks for your very kind recommendations. I'm very pleased that you all had a great stay and managed to maximise the city and all it's great attractions to its full. Hope to see you again in the future. All the best David.

“Great apartment to discover fabulous Valencia!”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2012

Easy to book and great communications from the landlord throughout. We were met at the apartment and given lots of useful information and two sets of keys. Great as we were two couples travelling together. The apartment was as expected from the photos. Great living room area with balcony over the street and a good sized dining table. Bedroom two was small as we read on other reviews but the bed was very comfortable which is much more important. Extra pillows and blankets were supplied and there was masses of storage space in the apartment. It was really helpful to have basic items in the kitchen and bathroom such as soap, washing up liquid, foil, clingfilm and toilet rolls which saved us having to buy all these items just for a week. The location was excellent for us. A short walk to the historic centre but in an area where we could take part in the local Fallas celebrations in the streets nearby.All the amenities were close by, bakery for breakfast and supermarkets for provisions, and bus and tram stops for trips to the beach and marina. The landlords could not have been more helpful and were able to accomodate our early departure time. I have already recommended the apartment to family and friends. Valencia is a beautiful city with so much to do and see. We were there for the Fallas celebrations which have to be seen to be believed. We need to return again and see all the things we couldn't fit into our week and would happily book the same apartment again.

Thanks for your kind recommendations and I'm really pleased that you all enjoyed a fantastic stay over the Fallas fiesta which invariably can be quite tiring and that you found our apartment well located to be able to quickly step back-to without losing the tremendious buzzing atmosphere; for a quick & necessary recharge. The pleasant lively terraced cafes & bars as you mention closeby offer great value from breakfasts through to dinner or just a delicious 'cafe con leche' and allow some well earned feet easing or just enjoying & watching the local world go by... Hopefully we'll either see yourselves or your friends in the nearest future. Thanks David.

“Ideal for sightseeing”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2012

Very comfortable with very easy access to essential shops and a short walk to access transport to all interesting places. Well equipped kitchen, it would have been useful if there were English instructions for the washing machine. The nights were chilly in March but lots of extra bedding supplied. Everything nice and clean and regular cleaning in the entrance and hallways. Very good elevator system.

Thanks for reminding me re; manual for washing machine. I'll see whether it's possible to download one to make life easier! - as one supplied Spanish only. I'm pleased that you found everything readily convenient and the dual lift service really is great - extremely efficient consequently invariably there's little need to have to share with other neighbours. Interestingly the building was constructed to quite a high Spanish standard and is maintained accordingly.

“Excellent apartment superbly situated”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2011

We were more than happy with everything, the helpful and welcoming host, the cleanliness of the apartment, the furniture, where the apartment is situated and all. The beds were also very comfortable. Trine and Nina, Norway

Thanks for your kind commendations. I'm very please to note your points re; cleanliness, comforts, location and close proximity to all the city's best cultural & recreational attractions whether by ease of short walks or quick and efficient public transport. The city's ayuntiamiento/town hall has just completed a full project of pedestrianisation of the ancient C.14 Serranos Puente/bridge leading directly to Carmen & the Historic city which will now enable future guests to enjoy a much more relaxed enroute approach and enjoy a far more interesting perspective into this city's former glories and illustrious history whilst on their visits.
