Discovering Valencia: A Leading Hotel of the World you should stop by - Las Arenas Valencia
I first looked for a nice apartment to rent on Airbnb.com ... but then I saw this amazing hotel, and since i traveled there for an important reason in my life... I said... Ok let's be crazy!
Las Arenas Valencia was a very nice Hotel (5 stars, Leadings Hotels of the World Community) where we stood. Of course pretty expensive, but it offer an incredible Fooding experience and Relax with two swimming pools.
You have a wonderful view over the sea and the Paseo de Neptuno, very close to Restaurants and Clubs. Although you're not in the city center, the tramway and the bus can easily brig you up to l'Ayuntamento. Taxi drivers are really honest: it's not like some Taxis in Paris! They took 23 euros from and the back to the airport.
Service was... Ok. Being a somebody working for a 5 star as well i saw very bad bad things over there, like a Maitre d'Hotel yelling at a waiter in front of the customers... Reception missing the 15/5 90% of the time.. ordering a Champagne Bottle at 90€ and receiving one at 7€... nevertheless Housekeeping was great and a French man at the Blue Bar made a Marvellous service.
Fooding there is great, cocktails are fantastic as well.
We had to try the famous restaurant "La Pepica"
I was speechless: It was the best Paella i have ever had and service was simply splendid.
You cannot go to Valencia without trying this Restaurant...
Well we just fell in love with the city ..
Back to Paris...
