Design boutique hotel with swimming pool and personal attention in the heart of Valencia
Local tapas, pitchers full of sangria, atmospheric streets and countless palm trees: a city trip to Valencia is enjoyment in one word. This third largest city in Spain is the perfect mix of art, culture, sun, gastronomy, and beach. Everything feels much more authentic than, for example, the larger Barcelona, whereby you experience more of the real Spanish life. If you are looking for a trendy stay close to all the fun spots in the city, YOURS Boutique Hotel is highly recommended. You will be warmly welcomed by the friendly team!
YOURS Boutique Hotel is located in the Ruzafa district in Valencia, just below the old town of the Spanish city. This hip district is becoming increasingly popular because of the unique shops, authentic restaurants, and cozy bars and terraces. YOURS Boutique Hotel is right in the middle of it all, making it an ideal base for a city trip to Valencia. The minimalist design of the hotel provides an oasis of calm in this bustling city.
When you step into YOURS, you immediately feel the fine and relaxed atmosphere created by the owners. In the reception area, you will find a coffee bar and check-in desk in one, and you immediately see that everything is perfect down to the last detail. Only local parties were used for the design and furnishings, which makes the whole thing extra special. In addition, on the ground floor, there is a lounge area, from where you can walk directly to the soothing patio with a small but fine swimming pool. The rooms and apartments are located on the upper floor.
From a modern superior room with a French balcony to a penthouse apartment with a private terrace, every stay is equipped with all conveniences. Whether you have planned a city trip to Valencia with your lover or your best friend, we are certain that a stay at YOURS Boutique Hotel will be a hit!
Meet the owners
During your stay at YOURS Boutique Hotel, the Dutch owners are there for you at any time of the day. Wouter and Daphne had already been running a small bed & breakfast in a nearby neighborhood for five years before they started YOURS, but because of expansion plans, they were looking for a larger building. At the end of 2020, their eye fell on a dilapidated, abandoned building in Rufaza, where they could implement all their creative ideas in collaboration with a local architect. After a major renovation, the doors finally opened in August 2021, and this minimalist gem has since been busy and loved by many.
The perfect mix of minimalism and ambiance
The rooms and apartments at YOURS Boutique Hotel are carefully decorated and have all the facilities for a wonderful stay. Despite the quiet interior, it's incredibly atmospheric and you'll feel at home within minutes. In addition to the standard superior rooms and lofts, the hotel also offers a large penthouse and spacious apartments, where you have access to a fully equipped kitchen.
Culinary surprises outside the door
YOURS does not have its own restaurant, but enjoying a delicious breakfast is an option and we definitely recommend that! The menu includes artisan bread, local sweets and fruit from the market. Choose, for example, the classic tostada con tomate or an açaí bowl with granola. For lunch and dinner you can - literally and metaphorically - go in any direction. From classic Spanish tapas bars to gourmet delights in starred restaurants, the choice is huge. Fish lovers should definitely visit La Cooperativa del Mar and dine at Michelin-level at 2 Estaciones.
In Valencia, you can enjoy a lovely sunshine about 300 days per year, which makes this Spanish city the perfect destination for a city trip. The city is atmospheric, considerably more authentic than Barcelona, for instance, and due to its size, almost everything can be done on foot. Particularly, the El Carmen district in the historical city center, with its labyrinth of streets and all kinds of nice boutiques and interesting buildings, is highly recommended. Fancy a beach day? That's also possible! By bike or public transport, you'll be standing with your feet in the sand in no time. At the Les Arenas beach, you can rent sunbeds, and there are various beach clubs where you can enjoy a bite to eat and a drink.
YOURS Boutique Hotel is located in Valencia's Ruzafa neighborhood. This district is located south of the old center and is known as one of the hippest neighborhoods in the city. You will find all kinds of unique boutiques and concept stores, bustling bars and cafes and cozy terraces. You can reach the center of Valencia within a 10 to 15 minute walk.
The nearest airport is Aeroport de València, the airport of Valencia, which is located approximately 10 km away. From there, you can rent a car, take a taxi or take the metro to the accommodation.
From Amsterdam, it takes approximately 19 hours to drive to YOURS Boutique Hotel. Close to the accommodation, there are public parking options. The cost is approximately €22 per day.
