In the heart of Valencia’s fashionable Carmen district, Palau de la Mar is a chic refuge created out of two 19th century stately homes which have been completely remodelled to form the city’s first luxury five star hotel.

Harriet, Kate L and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

Standing on an attractive street, the hotel's classic facade hides the luxurious modern interior which lies within.

The 76 rooms have all been stylishly decorated with neutral white fabrics and dark wood floorings and sliding doors separate them from the spacious bathrooms.

The hotel's excellent Senzone restaurant serves fine Mediterranean cuisine and there is a more informal lounge and cocktail bar facing the inner courtyard gardens.

The Bodyna Spa features an indoor swimming pool, steam room, sauna and fitness room and offers a good range of treatment.

Many of the city's top attractions including the Palace of Music, Oceanic Museum, Plaza del Toros and the Mediterranean beach are within easy walking distance, as are the lively restaurants and bars of the Carmen district.

Why we love it

The Romans created Valencia as a place of rest, so you really ought to indulge in the Spa here - it's tradition after all.
