I'm a freelance illustrator, I work from home.
I love to travel and I'd been in North and South America and all over Europe.
I'm always excited of meeting new people :)
The reservation was canceled 41 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Very friendly atmosphere. The room in a spledid area of the city, at walking distance from the center.
To be recommended
Very nice place,
the area is lovely and well located.
All the apartment is very typical.
We had a great time!
I had a comfortable stay in Raquel's flat. It's not a far walk to the center. There are numerous restaurant options on the same street, as well as a Valenbisi station (the public bike system). If you're a runner like me, then you'll be happy that just a 5 min walk to the river and you'll arrive to a great path providing many kilometers of walking/running/biking uninterrupted by traffic. The bed is comfortable. As for Raquel, she is very concerned with making sure everything is ok. She is very easy-going and helpful. Janco and Juanita are wonderful, friendly cats also. I am happy I stayed at this flat and if I return to Valencia, I'll probably try to stay here again. :)
Raquel is thoughtful, reliable and kind. I really enjoyed getting to know her. Her English is excellent. I also enjoyed meeting her boyfriend, Jorge, who stayed with us often, as well as her two cats.
The location was great, the WiFi solid, the apartment clean. All the appliances worked and with the high ceilings and tiled floor, it has a great old-Valencian feel to it. There is no elevator, so be ready for the 4 floor hike up.
The only possible downside is that the room overlooks a very busy and noisy street, so if you're a light sleeper, as I am, it's a non-starter. However, Raquel graciously and immediately allowed me to setup my trusty air mattress in an interior living room that was "muy tranquil", so that worked out fine. I appreciate her flexibility.
I would absolutely stay here again, as long as I have my trusty air mattress. Raquel is a delight.
Increible lugar, muy cerca del centro y bien comunicado. Además de estar en una zona de restaurantes y sitios para divertirse. Raquel es excelente anfitriona y muy amable. Los gatos son hermosos.
We spent 2 nights in Raquel's very nice room and loved every minute of it. Raquel's apartment is simply stunning and very well located.
Her tips are very useful, the place is very clean and tidy and her friendliness made our stay a very happy one.
Had an absolutely wonderful stay at Raquel's place.
She made me feel right at home in her apartment. Raquel is a wonderful, gracious and very helpful host and a great person to get to know, not to mention: incredibly talented!
Her home is lovely, full of original features such as beautiful tiled floors, double doors and shutters. And the room has a little balcony with a view over the hustle and bustle below. Everywhere you look in the house you can find lovely details from the past. The location is fantastic: next to the city center, surrounded by loads of restaurants, bakeries & shops, and near the Turia park: you can easily walk to all of the city's interesting sights.
Plus it's close to the underground, so there's excellent access to the airport. The train station is a stone's throw away.
Raquel's cats are utterly adorable, they love to cuddle and play, but they also know when enough is enough. Juanita soon became my furry BFF, dropping by occasionally for a quiet little chat (yes, she talks!) and a snuggly catnap on my legs or the chair next to me. Gezellig! :)
All in all I had a total blast staying in Raquel's house, and I can totally recommend her room to anyone who wants to visit the beautiful city of Valencia!
In fact: I hope to be back soon!! :)
Thank you again for everything, Raquel!! :D
Raquel is a very lovely person and a perfect host!! I arrived at midnight and she picked me up from the metro. Her flat is in a good location and very close to the city center and the beautiful "Jardin del Turia" . A lots of restaurants and cafes are in the street.
I spent two weeks at Raquel´s place and i really enjoyed each day. The flat is awesome, elegant arranged, brightly and clean. I felt really welcome and she mades me feel like home. I definitely recommend her!
Don´t hesitate, you will have a good time with Raquel!!
Hope to see you one day in Germany! You are always welcome!
We spent two nights in Valencia with Raquel and it was lovely. The apartment is very light and airy and the two cats are very cute!
The location is good and its an easy walk into the city centre.
Raquel gave us some great suggestions for places to eat and Valencian dishes to look out for on menus.
The street where she lives is bustling at night with bars and restaurants but we found small local places too that were cheap within the vicinity of the apartment.
If you are into architecture I would recommend the art and science park for a walk around. Its like a spooky futuristic film set.
I would recommend to anyone to stay with Raquel. She is really friendly and made us feel very welcome in her home.
