Hospes Palau de la Mar
Why We Love This Hotel
- The 5-star boutique hotel is in a historic 19th-century palace
- The Turia Gardens are within walking distance
- Valencia's historical center is 15 minutes' walk away
The Guardian describes Valencia as a "jewel" and praises the "world class" gothic architecture, "spectacular" food and "divine" weather.
The 5-star boutique Hospes Palau de la Mar is a great base from which to explore this vibrant city. The grand boutique hotel is comprised of two former palace buildings and is next to the Turia Gardens, a former river bed converted into lush gardens.
The hotel is in Valencia's Eixample Noble district and is 15 minutes' walk from the city's AVE Railway Station. Valencia’s cathedral and old town are 10 minutes' walk from the hotel and the City of Arts and Sciences is a 10 minute taxi ride away. La Lonja de la Seda de Valencia, a Gothyic-style civil building and Unesco World Heritage site, is 15 minutes' walk away.
You can relax in the Bodyna Spa and have a treatment in one of the rooms that overlook the courtyard gardens. Other facilities include a hot tub, a sauna, a Turkish bath and a small gym.
The Ampar Restaurant serves typical Valencian cuisine: la paella, in all its versions, forms and flavors. The hotel has a courtyard that simulates a boat deck and the cocktail lounge overlooks the garden and is an ideal place for an aperitif or a nightcap.
