A stop off before visiting family.
My sister and I
Walk down the old river, which is now a stunning park that runs through the middle of Valencia.
Beautiful Alma del Temple restaurant under the arches in the basement of the hotel.
King size bed, oh so comfortable with beautiful floor to ceiling windows out to the street.
Bulgari amenities and plush robes in the rather grand bathroom.
Other half of the spacious room, floating sofa with desk.
Bar with sun-lit terrace along the city’s Arabic wall,
perfect for an aperitif or two.
And we did enjoy a couple of G&T’s on the lovely terrace
… And not any old G&T, but G&T made from one of Valencia’s own gins! Bar staff very happy to show of their local spirits to us Brits!
Where old meets new. The lobby, where original tiles from the Palace of the Marquis of Caro have been lovingly restored.
Grand exterior of the Caro Hotel.

I loved the history of this place, I mean, 2000 BC? Crazy! The building is stunning – historic pieces have been lovingly restored and contemporary items have been sensitively put in place.
The intimate Terrace Bar, perfect for an early evening local G&T.
Perfect location for exploring the old city of Valencia.
I wanted to stay longer and change rooms each night!
