Spain’s third city is a lively, youthful metropolis which trades on its standout food and beaches. For somewhere to stay while you enjoy them, these are the best hotels in Valencia, bookable on Culture Trip.

A big city with a big heart, Valencia is famous for its food – like the legendary paella – and festivals. The Roman architecture of the Old Town contrasts with Santiago Calatrava’s otherworldly modernism at the City of Arts and Sciences. This port city buzzes with trade, tourism and business – but its beaches are where everyone goes to relax at the weekend.

1. Ramirez Flats and Bar

This hipster hangout is the kind of hotel Valencia’s cool crowd like to visit, so you know it’s going to be good. The throngs come to its Ramirez Bar to enjoy forward-facing tapas, like spinach and quinoa croquetas (Spain’s grandmas will be turning in their graves). So, if you like to congregate with the cognoscenti, this is the place. The effortlessly cool “flats” above include all mod cons, like bijou kitchens and sofas, making this a very enjoyable place to stay.

2. Hotel Cosmo

Impressive interiors, which are far beyond what many people even have at home, mark out this quality design hotel. With white walls and gold accents, this chic hotel sits in the heart of Valencia, close to City Hall and the Central Market. Book their top restaurant downstairs for a casual dinner – plus the breakfast eggs are a must-have.

Cities like Valencia can be overwhelming, but respite comes in the form of shaded gardens. If you love foliage and the outdoors, then City Garden’s terrace, decked out with trailing plants and cute potted plants, will elevate the spirits. Don’t miss a glass of the famous Valencia orange juice out here at breakfast time – they also serve other seasonal Spanish fruits.

Every room is unique with wooden beams, rustic stone walls and sleek minimal furnishings. It’s all topped off with the Michelin-star Sucede restaurant, developed by El Bulli alumnus Miguel Ángel Mayor – it’s famous for its local eels.
