Overview

Valencia Old Town Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful, Grand, Spacious Historical apt by Cathedral & Basilica

Fantastic 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment located on a quiet street in the very heart of Valencia City's historic quarter. The building itself is a fantastic grand property ('Palacete') from the 18th century. Although recently renovated in 2014 (new wood floors, doors, 2nd bathroom, new granite tops) all the original features such as wooden beams, high ceilings, 5m tall wooden building entrance door etc. have been preserved. 3 balconies large enough to sit out on overlook historical Calle Serranos with the immense medieval Serranos Towers in the background. Unlike other apartments which are located in suburban areas, SERRANOS 17 is located right in the middle of the historical centre meaning more time for sightseeing and shopping and less time wasted taking taxis back and forth to the city centre. With WiFi Internet, very good air conditioning (in both living area and sleeping area), 42' flat screen TV, fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge etc .

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Nicholas Walsh

Living in Spain on and off for the last 20 years and 10 years in Valencia renting out short term apartments in Valencia's wonderful old town centre

Nicholas Walsh purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Nicholas Walsh chose Valencia Old Town

Unique historical building with 3 large balconies (difficult to find balconies big enough to sit out on in the old town). Wonderful airy living room - dining area with 5m high ceilings. Great character - original wooden beams, warm wooden floor, great big entrance door downstairs for horsemen...

Incredible! Top Notch Accommodation!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property to stay in! The location is terrific and the apartment itself is superb. We stayed for 2 months and found it a comfortable and upscale home. The kitchen has everything one could possibly need to cook the perfect meal...the dining area seats at least 6 comfortably, and is very pleasant. The lounge has a great widescreen television with loads of channels and we were able to use our apple tv converter with little effort. There was plentiful comfortable seating, which we have found to be rare in apartments such as this. Wifi worked well throughout the apartment. The two bedrooms were tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable... the double bed in the smaller bedroom fit the two of us very nicely! The other (larger) bedroom has 2 twin beds and room for an additional. Both bathrooms were comfortably appointed and the hot water (and shower pressure) was plentiful. There are 2 small balconies overlooking the street (and the Torre de Sorrento!) that are perfect for early morning coffee and that late afternoon glass of wine... The landlord (Nicholas) was professional, friendly, and extremely responsive. During our stay, the washer broke down...the next day, Nicholas replaced it with a brand new unit. Who could ask for more?

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is a brisk 10 min walk from the nearest metro- we found the address easily. It's located in a wonderful building and surrounded by cafes, restaurants and shops. You really are in the heart of the historical district. At night, it can get noisy - especially on a weekend. However, we did sort of expect this in a central location and we didn't go to bed too early! The living area is spacious and light. It was great sitting in the sun on one of the balconies. The larger bedroom was very comfortable, slept very well. The smaller bedroom can just accomodate one person . Fine for sleeping! To get a full marks score I think the small kitchen appliances need updating. ( kettle, coffee maker, toaster)We had our coffee at the lovely local cafe next door. Also small bedroom had a strange drain smell??Not sure what this was about.....

Fantastic place to stay in a great place

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay in this lovely apartment. Valencia is a great place to visit. The apartment is situated in the centre of town so restaurants, shops, museums are close by. We can recommend the apartment to anyone fit enough to climb stairs :)

very nice property

  • 5 of 5

I just came back from my holidays in valencia. Had the pleasure of staying in this property.

The photos do not give you the real feel of the place. When me and my sister were let into the apartment we had our mouths open, it is stunning we couldnt belive we were going to be staying there. It has still got some of its orgianal features i.e of old wooden beams. The owner has also made a great effort in how he decorated it. And he has also made it feel like a home. Fully air contioned and cooking utensils in apartment.

It was also in a great location, right in the middle of the old part of the town very queit and safe there at night. you got the real feel for how the spanish live and didnt feel like another tourist location. Also it is very close to the lively part of the town if you choose to go out for drinks.

The apartment is on the third floor but you get used to the stairs. The only thing for me was the bus to the beach took 20 mins but it was a good oppurtunity to get to see some of the town and there was so much to do in valencia that we only went there twice.

The landlord has a folder in apartment of all the things you can go to see during your stay which was very helpful on planning our outings. Great things for children to go and see at a reasonable price.Very close to bus stops, train station and metro.

I know this is a very detailed description of the property but wanted to help other people that are looking for somewhere nice to stay and at a reasonable price.

The landlord was also very helpful he replyed promtly to me emails and was helpful on our arrival telling us how to get around the town i.e transport.

I would recommend this apartment to my friends and family and hopefully will have the pleasure of staying there again.

This apartment was excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We (family with 2 children, aged 4 and 8) had a fantastic stay in this excellent apartment. The location is perfect - close to restaurants, tapas bars, shops, museums and the tram stop to the beach. The apartment has everything you need and is in a lovely old building. I would recommend it to everyone, except when you have very small children or have problems climbing stairs (it is 4 flights up!)

perfect position

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Valencia 3 times and each time have been delighted to return to this apartment. Whithout wanting to sound like a salesman it is ideally located in the heart of the cultural/historic quarter with cathederals, shops bars and restaurants within a minutes walk.

It is a fantastic base for exploring the city centre and it is possible to find car parking spaces within a 10 minute walk of the apartment on the other side of the river bed.

It can be a little noisy on weekend nights and there are stairs only (3rd floor) but what do you want from a 19th century city centre apartment with bags of historical charm in the centre of the beating heart of the city.

Nick and David have given great help and advice on our vists.

Thanks.
