"We didn't expect more... so liked to stay here!"
We stayed about a week at Marina Atarazanas during MICE Film festival in Valencia. Our room was clean and equipped with all basic things. It's true that the reception desk and all other staff were friendly and helpful. But I felt, some essentials like drinking water and some tea coffee making devices were missing. However, the hotel is close to the beach and all sorts of public transport. There are several restaurants nearby having different cuisines from all almost over the world! Breakfast served at the hotel was also good. We didn't expect too much, so we liked our stay at Marina Atarazanas.
"The hotel needs a full top to bottom clean and redecorate throughout but the staff are lovely and very helpful."
Our room was basic - small fridge, no kettle, needed a complete top to bottom clean and re decorated not just a little freshen up. The bedroom window was dirty and the edges very scruffy. The bathroom needs a complete clean from top to bottom and re decorated. I would have to say it is more like a 2 star hotel though the bedding was very clean and the maids work hard for the little time they have in each room. The beds were comfortable. The dining room is pleasant and Pedro, the waiter is very nice and helpful as was Luca and the lady waitress. The reception staff were lovely too. The roof top bar is not anything to do with the hotel and is open Friday, Sat and Sunday evenings from 7.30 until 2. I wasn't impressed with the bar girls (very snobby) bacardi and coke cost 6 euros. You are not allowed to take drinks from the hotel up to the roof bar ( I did because no one told me until the last night that it was not run by the hotel) I was told not to take drinks up there again. The roof bar attracts a young crowd mainly and the music is aimed for these young people. I was on holiday with my 21 year old son but he hated the roof bar and the music. Quite a snobby set seem to attend and I didn't feel that they wanted older English people up there. I was not made to feel welcome and had I known that the roof bar was not anything to do with the hotel and was only open 3 evenings a week I probably would not have booked to go. We never found the gym as I think it was up on the roof and we could not access the roof unless on the 3 evenings when the bar is open. The beach is a good one around 15 minutes walk. Mercadona nearby and a Lidl down the street. Not much to do in the area around the hotel. We were half board and if you want lunch instead of dinner you can swap. Unfortunately I have to have a gluten free diet so my choice was limited but the mail courses are not very filling and my son did not enjoy one single meal and in honesty nor did I. I would not book this hotel again and cannot recommend it although we can both recommend the staff.
"not that bad..."
the location is grate just 10 min walking to the beach... the staff was friendly, the WIFI excellent, even if you are just close to the hotel you get WIFI for that I was just very pleased....just the rooms and the air conditioning need improving... for breakfast not a problem you will find on each corner nice coffeehouse with nice pastry or breakfast menu...
"From bad to worse"
I booked this hotel because I was looking for a place near the beach but failed to read the reviews first how wrong I was! First of all the blonde lady at the check in was very rude with me and looked as if she could not be bothered being there, a really bad customer service experience The rooms air con wasnt working properly, the lift was only working at certain floors and the breakfast was inadequate This hotel needs a lot of improvements especially with the lady at the reception Regards
"Does what it says on the tin..."
Excellent value for money. I've stayed in hotels that I've paid a lot more for that don't have anywhere near the excellent staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds and good towels. I stayed one night and paid £51. A total bargain.
