Sited in a truly enviable location, this recently opened hotel offers quiet comfort near the Plaza de la Virgen in the city center. Although the Basilica of the Virgin and the Turia fountain in the Plaza are popular, visitors should be sure to wander around the corner to the Plaza la Reina, which some believe to be where the Roman temple of Diana once stood. Visitors will find a tourist information office there that provides a free, very detailed map of the city and its other historic landmarks and attractions. To the northwest of the cathedral sits the Plaza del Ayuntamiento with its Town Hall, a key point of reference with numerous shops and restaurants around it. Parallel to the hotel runs Calle de Mar with its popular Al Pomodoro Restaurant, serving excellent provincial Italian food, while for that special occasion, reserve one of only nine tables at Ca Sento, the most coveted restaurant in Valencia and well worth the taxi ride.
