After our first night in Valencia at Hôme Backpacker's hostel, we moved on to another in the Hôme group, the Hôme Rooms Deluxe Hostel. I'd picked it because I loved the individually designed rooms, each created by an artist with a different theme - I wrote about them in a previous post. The place has a modern, stylish feel and would attract anyone with artistic tendancies. The other guests were couples of all ages and families with older children. One suspects they were, like us, more interested in seeing the city than staying up partying all night.
The hotel is in a modern block only a couple of years old and surrounded by other new residential buildings. Apparently the area was rather run down,until the City of Arts and Sciences was completed at the end of the road and then the whole area was re-developed. There are several restaurants, cafes and small shops in the neighbourhood, and a shopping mall 5 walk minutes away. The City of Arts and Sciences is on your doorstep, and you need to take a 15 min bus journey into the older heart of Valencia, but it was an easy and cheap journey.(€5.65 for a Bonabus card for 10 journeys)
