Bright and budget single bedroom in apartment of three rooms. Views to interior patio. Single bed of 0,90m. Electric heating and pretty fresh apartment in summer.
Located in Alameda and Mestalla neighbourhood, next to the Valencia football club stadium, and near to downtown. One block to Turia Gardens, the longuest urban park in Europe located in the old river bed, and nearby Royal Gardens, the most ancient in the city, where you can visit the ruins of the medieval Royal Palace.
Two minutes walking to Alameda metro station with direct link to Airport and main train stations (North and Joaquín Sorolla), lines 3 red and 5 green. Besides there are lots of bus lines in both sides of the riverbed, take bus 95 to go to the City of Arts and Sciences (or 25 minutes walk) or bus 32 to go to Malvarrosa Beach (or 45 minutes walk), one of the top ten most beautiful city beaches in the world for Lonley Planet.
In our street there is bike path and a Valenbisi station to rent a public bike. We highly recomend that you buy a week pass with which you can make trips of 30 minutes (you can check the bike in and out to keep it longer with no extra charges). If you take a bike you can easily get to the beach or visit the entire city from west to east along the old riverbed, to ride a bike under the medieval bridges is a unique experience.
Do not hesitate to ask for availability, because we rent either the entire apartment or each bedroom. So the bedroom may seem available, and posibly but unprobably the apartment is rented.

Our place is special because it was desinged, home improved (with some help) and decorated by Gemma and me. I was born in the hospital a few blocks away and I lived my entire childhood in this home. You can enjoy the island kitchen, the white leather chaiselongue sofa, the 40 inches led TV (most of the shows and movies can be changed to English with the remote control), and the PS2 with Guitar Hero 3.
We love cooking Spanish and Valencian dishes such as paella, fideua, oven rice or potato omelet. But we also hang out to discover new places to eat and have a drink in the city. You can join us!
1- We are freelance wedding photographers that work editing photos and videos at home. Sometimes, not everyday, we have a meeting with clients in the living room that usually are at 12h. or at 20h. and that may last one hour. Please, DURING A MEETING DO NOT BE HOME or remain inside your bedroom. We'll inform you if we have any meeting in advance.
2- Please, do not leave BEACH SAND in the apartment, room and/or bed. Shake properly your towels at the beach and do it once again in the laundry room, then please sweep the sand. A nice way to avoid bringing sand is to have a SHOWER at home right after returning from the beach.
3- Please, do not HANG TOWELS or clothes outside your window. You can use the rack in the laundry room, next to the washing machine.
4- CHECK OUT at 12h/12pm (noon/midday). You can leave your luggage longer in the entrance and keep the key until you finally leave at the time you need.
5- LUNCH TIME is at 14h (2pm) and DINNER TIME is at 21h (9pm). Please do not cook earlier than that if we are working with our computers in the living room which is one meter away from the kitchen.
6- Please, read the GARBAGE bins: "PLASTIC AND CANS" on the yellow can for plastic bottles, cans and tetra bricks. "ORGANIC TRASH" for it. "CARDBOARD AND PAPER" for it. Everything is in the kitchen except the "GLASS", that it's at the green bag in the laundry room.
7- Please, do not leave GLASSES in the bedroom. Do not take glasses outside home either.
8- Please, LOCK the apartment door when there's nobody home.
9- SMOKING is only allowed outdoors in the laundry room. Please, close the door to avoid smoke getting inside the apartment.
10- Avoid having LIGHTS unnecessary turned on. We really appreciate if you open the blinders in the morning instead of turning the lights on. We have low consumption lamps in each room, we thank you for using these lamps instead of the main lights when it's possible. Please, also open the window a little bit for some ventilation.
11- Please make sure to flush the toilet and stop it when it's done by clicking a second time. Otherwise, it may keep leaking.
12- Enjoy your stay and enjoy our home just like if it would be your own.
The hosts are quiet people but very friendly and welcoming. They make conversation well but are hard workers in their home. There is a list of rules they wish people abide by, which I didn't think was much of a problem since I was out most of the time. They are reliable individuals, very educated and incredibly nice. The room was clean. Don't know how they feel about you using their kitchen since I never did but might be a good thing to ask. Worked out perfectly for me. AND there's an elevator !!
Dormí una noche en esta habitación y cumplió con mis expectativas. Habitación limpia, silenciosa, a pocos metros del estadio Mestalla y en una zona bien comunicada. Miguel y Gema han sido muy amables y disponibles. Además, responden a los correos/mensajes con gran rapidez. Repetiria seguramente! :)
Stayed at Miguel and Gemma's apartment for a week. They are a lovely couple, very easy-going and friendly. They both speak English well, and were very helpful. The room is a single but was fine for me. It's a quiet room so slept well and could also have a nice siesta on an afternoon. The apartment is nice and modern, and I had my own keys and could come and go as necessary. The location is great for access to most areas, and a short walk to the River Park, the city centre and the Alameda metro station. Handy shop and Valenbici bike station close by too. Enjoyed my stay. Many thanks.
Miguel y Gemma gracias por la estancia en su hogar. Lástima que tenía muchas actividades que hacer en Valencia y no había tiempo para que hablemos más. A la salida Yo no sé si se puede despertar a despedirme y gracias por todo. En caso de duda, optó por no despertarlos. Fue un gran placer es con ustedes en estos días.
My stay in Valencia at Gemma and Miguels house was my first airbnb experience. And I really liked it :-)
Gemma and Miguel are very nice hosts, easy going and helpful.
We even had a drink together on my last evening :-)
The location is perfect! Metro is near and you can reach everything on foot.
So I highly recommend these hosts!!
Thank you, Gemma and Miguel :-)))
I had a very nice stay in the room in the Apartment of Miguel and Gemma. It's perfectly located as close to the center (17 minutes walk) and has a supermarket and bakery close by. I liked meeting other travellers from around the world that stayed in the apartment as well (in total there are two to three rooms to let).

We started sharing our place with foreign people and we loved it. We used Airbnb for the first time as guests in our trip to NYC and it was a great experience.
