Part of a brand new building that houses only four apartments in total, this one bedroom property is an ideal option for a couple. A stay in this apartment offers guests the opportunity to stay in one of the best locations in Valencia. The apartment is located on a pedestrianized street (keeping traffic noise to a minimum) and is right on the doorstep of the city’s famous Cathedral. Straddling two of the most historic and atmospheric neighbourhoods in the city - El Carmen and Ciutat Vella – staying here allows guests to explore many of Valencia’s most famous sights and attractions on foot, including the Mercado Central and the Lonja de Seda, both of which can be reached in under five minutes . El Carmen is a maze of winding, narrow streets, and is home to many of the city’s best tabernas and restaurants, making it the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely tapeo in the evening. Good transport links nearby give easy access to the beach, the airport and the modern City of Arts and Sciences, meaning guests can experience the whole city easily. The apartment itself is exterior-facing, and has two small French balconies that look out onto the street, allowing guests to observe the hustle and bustle of daily Spanish life below, and giving great views of the Cathedral and the Micalet. The living room has been furnished and decorated in a contemporary style, with original artwork on the walls, and designer sofas and light fittings, as well as a unique Chinese-style bar. The kitchen is partially separated from the living room, and comes fully equipped with everything guests may need during their stay. Climbing a small staircase with a hand-made original railing are the two bedrooms. The master bedroom is in keeping with the rest of the apartment in style and décor, and comes complete with en-suite bathroom. There is a second bedroom separated from the hallway by a glass partition wall. The bedroom boasts a double bed, fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with shower. This apartment is found in the same building as the other Micalet properties on the Spain Select books, and therefore is a great option for families or groups who want to book separate apartments whilst staying in the same vicinity.
Surface area: 75m2. First floor with lift. Entrance leads into an open plan living room with 3 French windows with views of the pedestrian street and the cathedral. The living area is furnished with one 3-seater sofa, a square black coffee table, a Chinese cupboard that serves as bar and two chairs. Discreet Flat screen TV on the wall opposite the sofa. The fully equipped kitchen is equipped with fridge, freezer, 4-ring ceramic hob, dishwasher, oven and microwave, washing machine with dryer. The stairs lead to the two bedrooms, the master bedroom has a double bed (1.6m x 1.9m) and has a fitted wardrobe and en-suite bathroom with shower. The second bedroom also has a double bed (1.35m x 1.9m) with fitted wardrobe and en-suite bathroom with shower. Please note the floors of the apartment are stone with a shiny finish.
Additional amenities include: lift, washer / dryer....Read more

Spent four nights in Micalet 1 and never fully explored the delights of the apartment or the city. Need to go again. Very well presented first floor apartment quite high up, extremely well fitted out and amazing art that fully complements the environment. The description and photos do not do justice to Micalet 1; not often that happens. Rolling back the floor to ceiling windows keep you in touch with the street yet almost like being in the cinema and seeing all the movement. Surrounded by lots of places to eat and very central for all the sites. Taxi rank round the corner for longer trips and back to the airport. Magnificent.

From the first contact that was made with Spain Select regarding my booking through to the last they were extremely helpful, co-operative and informative. In particular my compliments go to Stacey Vivian who was very attentive to all of my enquiries.
The accommodation itself was very well presented and Celia our contact was very personable in her presentation of the apartment, things to do and places to eat.
Overall I would not hesitate in using the services of Spain Select.

This flat is just off the Plaza de la Reina which is really central and has loads of restaurants on the doorstep. The flat is beautiful, very new and modern, and tastefully decorated. The kitchen has everything you need and there are two bathrooms, both spacious and stunning.
The only minus points were that the kitchen area is very small and there is a 4 seater table and if you want into some of the cupboards you have to move the chairs to open the doors. Also the bedroom is quite dark, but not really much of a problem for us.
Would stay there again - recommended.

I rate myself a very difficult customer to satisfy. Still, I could not find any fault with this beautiful place. Location, materials used, interior decoration, cleanness, accessories for kitchen, the bathrooms, bedrooms, service upon arrival, reservation and termination of contract, it was all perfect.
It is good to know that in these days, there are companies that keep their promises and go the extra mile.
