Highs & Lows

  • 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!
