The area about the Apartment;
Opposite the apartment Sorollais the department store of major prestige of the city, with an innumerable offer of articles and a varied selection of national and international names. Together with this one, the famous Street Colon that shelters the best shops of the city.
Opposite to the apartment you can find all the stops of bus and underground that will lead the visitor in a few minutes, to the Airport, to the City of the Arts and the Sciences and the beaches of Valencia.
Our apartment Sorolla is surrounded by the most emblematic streets of the former history of Valencia: the University and the baroque College of the Patriarch with its impressive church, and the famous Street of the Peace, perfect example of turn-of-the-century urbanism that ends in the set formed by the Tower of Holy Catalina, the Cathedral, the Micalet, the Strap and the Neighborhood of Carmen.
The apartment Sorolla is placed in the third floor with privileged direct access from the elevator to the dependences that shape this house - palace, and has capacity for eight guests.
The vestibule of this building of Frenchified style is an honoring to the rich work of the craftsmen of the epoch, which is reflected in the impressive lamp, the furniture, the mirrors and the dazzling stairs finished off with a transom that floods with light this magic space.
It consists of four double bedrooms, all with bathroom en-suite, great foyer, dining room, lounge, library and an enormous kitchen. All the dependences are exterior, enjoy a great luminosity and are perfectly isolated by closings of extraordinary quality, which provides to the place a silence that transforms the environment into oasis of calmness and luxury for enjoyment of the visitor.
On having gone out of the elevator we meet the first suite decorated in white and soft gray tones and private balcony that opens to the street. In the bath, they surprise the plates of rolled boulder and the great shower of natural stone, complemented with accessories of design.
Opposite to the elevator, a beautiful door decorated with the motive of solid and elegant concentric circles that repeats itself in every door of the palace and dressed in former curtains, and the exquisitely worn out handles it invites the visitor to do a surprising discovery: he has the whole palace decorated with antiquities (heights of ivory, tapestries, ceramics, ceilings of wood, furniture of epoch, extraordinary carpets, paintings of the 19th century) rehabilitated with the maximum respect to offer the comfort that needs his tourist stay.
After the foyer or small lounge in the one that can be enjoyed the cocktail before dinners, a few magnificent sliding doors are opened for a dining room of style Viennese with capacity for eight people. Two big columns and a beautiful folding screen separates it from the great lounge in bevel, in which the walls are replaced with big windows with a view to the beautiful Plaza of Alfonso Magnanimous, famous for its centenary trees and the collection of sculptures and Italian fountains, between which the "Neptune" stands out. This way, the lounge is distributed in two environments communicated between them, but that the visitor can divide to his wish: the lounge in strict sense, and the magnificent library - room of television. It is a space decorated entirely by a monumental boiserie with bas-reliefs of rural scenes, and lodges a bibliophile's magnificent collection close to monographs relating to the city of Valencia and his artistic exchequers.
The second suite looks directly to the Plaza of Alfonso Magnanimous: the furniture of noble restored wood consists of a great double bed, bedside tables, TV, mirror, armchair, dressing room and a great bathroom with the most ample shower, wash basin on worktop of marble and accessories of exquisite taste.
The "blue" suite with direct entry from the kitchen consists of two beds, mirror, bedside table and own balcony facing a pedestrian historical street. The bathroom preserves restored the former and beautiful tub of original stone, and emphasizes for the decoration of plates of rolled boulder that grants dynamism to the environment.
The monumental kitchen consists of two delimited environments: the zone of fires and the zone of laundry. Flooded with natural light and with cupboards of oak of great quality, it preserves some of the original restored elements: the sinks of marble, the plumbing fixtures of copper and the banks in both spaces. It is equipped with domestic appliances of last generation and small domestic appliances that will facilitate the preparation of meals to the visitors. It has a great glass table with capacity for eight people and is totally isolated of the rest of the house, having direct access from the elevator or from the distributor.
The fourth suite remembers the environment of the Mediterranean island of Ibiza. Both beds are crowned by headboards of dark gray wicker delicately plaited, whereas the white bedside tables and the mirror as well as the decorative elements and the light that bathes the stay award a soft maritime air.
Two distributors separate the suites of the common zones, providing total intimidate the visitors.
The house possesses installation of cold/hot air in all the dependences, besides radiators for the winter.

Ciutat Vella/El Carmen
The historical centre of Valencia is comprised of El Carmen and the commercial city centre - Ciudad Vella.
Among the most important monuments are Plaza Redonda, Torres de quart, Portal de Valldigna and the Iglesia Del Carmen. One of the main features of El Carmen are the holes in the massive towers of the Torres De Quart from the cannonballs used in the time of Napoleon. The ancient winding streets of the Barrio del Carmen contain buildings dating back to Roman and Arabic times. The Cathedral, built between the 13th and 15th century, is primarily of Gothic style, but contains elements of Baroque and Romanesque architecture. Beside the Cathedral is the Gothic Basilica of the Virgin (Basílica De La Virgen De Los Desamparados). The 15th century Serrano and Quart towers are part of what was once the wall surrounding the city.
UNESCO has recognized the Late Gothic silk exchange (La Lonja de la Seda) as a World Heritage Site. The modernist Central Market (Mercado Central) is one of the largest in Europe. The main railway station, Estación Del Norte, is built in art deco style.
The area is full of young people and lively bars. This lifestyle in contrast to the backdrop of old stone buildings and hidden courtyards, huge wooden doors with high door-knockers (to be reached from horseback) gives the Carmen a unique charm.
In the city centre, to the south of the Carmen, you will find all the international high street shops and most well known brand names. The largest square is the Plaça de l'Ajuntament, which contains the town hall (ajuntament), a cinema that shows classic movies (La Filmoteca), and many restaurants and bars.You cannot miss the majestic post office with paintings on the ceiling.
