As many regular readers know, I am cycling from Málaga to Oslo to raise money for Cancer Charities in 2013. From previous experience, I knew it was best to rekky key locations on the route – 4000 kms+ and one vital stop will be Valencia. I have many friends there and good contacts at a lot of the football clubs I shall be visiting.
I booked into the Expo Hotel off the street and I have to say it was an excellent choice. It is 2 minutes’ walk from the Bus Station and 10 minutes to the Railway Station …..although you can take public transport from outside the hotel.
It is a modern hotel and offers an excellent price/quality balance. There is a nice coffee bar, a full restaurant and 24/7 reception with English-speaking staff. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. There is free wifi throughout the hotel which is spotlessly clean throughout. Altogether an excellent choice and one which I would be happy to use as a base on my journey. Both Valencia’s and Levante’s grounds are a few minutes away on a bike and there is safe cycle parking at the hotel. There is masses of car parking and as it is just outside the city centre, there is a feeling of space and convenience about the location. The Nuevo Centro commercial centre is next door with a huge range of shops and stores.
Recommended ….I now need bases in Barcelona and Castellón. Suggestions?
