    Decent reasonably priced hotel in a quite location.

    Room could do with a refresh and was cramped. Staff could have been friendlier and more helpful. Finding parking proved time consuming.

    Relatively quite location and decent restaurant.

    I cannot fault this hotel. Everything was as a hotel should be.

    The hotel is located in the centre with a bus stop outside to take you to Valencia or Llyria to the metro.There is also a car park or Llyria is within walking distance where there is a good market on Thursday. The hotel is traditional, large rooms with good size bathrooms and quality toiletries. The staff are friendly and will do everything to help you. Wifi worked well..A lot of local people use the restaurant and the bar.I only had dinner in the bar which was of traditional Spanish food, all excellent. The daily menu is varied including fish and meat in the choice. ,three courses for a nominal amount. Very good value. The hotel is good for families or single travellers and is quiet enough for business meetings. The terrace outside is comfortable and ideal for relaxing to watch the world go by while having that glass of wine.

    We stayed because of the rave reviews of their Paella! But, Paella only available lunch time unless you book it for the evening!, The menu sounds impressive but three of the items asked for were not available (but food excellent what we did eat)...Ok, Allday wedding taking over hotel so restaurant closed to us and had to eat in bar....smell from the busy toilets wafting through. Prearranged parking in lock up 100mtrs away ...could have saved by parking on the road!

    The biggest issue I had at this hotel was that everywhere is tiled, very Spanish which is lovely, but unpractical, I was woken up constantly by other residents dragging their trollies up and down the corridors throughput the night, also snoring and other pastimes can be heard from other rooms!! took a while to get the heating to work (went during the winter) was very chilly at night. On a positive note, staff were lovely and the location was good for the purpose of my trip.

    This was our second stay at Hotel Rioja and again the hotel and the staff exceeded our expectations. This hotel is one of the best I have stayed in, quiet and beautiful views of Benisanó and Lliria, this really is a magnificent place to stay and the staff are very kind and will do anything for you. The hotel is on the main road that runs through the town of Benisanó, however, the road is quiet and very peaceful. Lliria which is a much larger town is only a 15 minute walk from the hotel and as Llliria doesn't have any hotels, I would recommend that you stay at Hotel Rioja as it is between Lliria and only 20 minutes drive back to Valencia beach and airport. The people of Lliria and Benisanó are the kindliest and friendliest of people I have ever met and even though there are not many English speaking people around, they will welcome you and accommodate you as if you were one of their own.

    The price/comfort ratio was over the board. The price should be more reasonably fixed to reflect the reality of hotel's location.
