HOTELS, HOSTELS AND PENSIONS. ¿WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
The hotel establishments are divided, in Valencia, in several groups:
The hotels are those establishments that occupy a building in their totality, or they occupy it partly but they have accesses (stairs and elevators) of exclusive use for the hotel.
hostels and pensions do
not occupy complete buildings, but they are located in houses and
the accesses to the establishment (stairs and elevators) are not
exclusive, but shared with the inhabitants of the building.
The establishments of each group (hotels, hostels and pensions) are different by their category, that is measured in stars. To greater number of stars, greater services.
As an example, the hotels of 4 and 5 stars must count on international TV channels, those of less stars no. The minimum surface of the double room is of 12 square meters in the hotels of 1 stars, 14 square meters in those of two stars, and thus up to 17 square meters in the hotels of five stars.

If you're looking for economic and centric lodging in
Valencia downtown, try the Lyon
Pension. It is at only few meters
from the North Station, the main railway station of Valencia,
and also closely together of the Seat of the City council.
