Occupying a thin peninsula off Andalusia’s southwestern coast, Cádiz is sought out for its arty vibe, excellent seafood, expansive beaches and famous carnival – the biggest and best in Spain.

Cádiz is one of Western Europe’s oldest cities and has been continually inhabited for over three millennia. From elegant double rooms next to the cathedral to the city’s first “low-cost deluxe” hostel, here’s our pick of the top places to stay if you’re visiting on a budget – bookable on Culture Trip.

A five-minute walk away is the Casa del Pirata, in which there are elegant double rooms with shared bathrooms.

    Luxury and budget accommodation occupy opposite ends of the price scale, right? Not at Planeta Cádiz: a classy hostel that’s introduced the concept of “low-cost deluxe” to the city.
