You won’t be short of choice when it comes to booking somewhere to stay in Cádiz. From a boutique hotel housed in a stunning 17th century convent to another offering free access to the city’s best spa, there is accommodation here to suit every taste. Read on for Culture Trip’s selection of the best hotels in Cádiz.
This hotel’s name is in no way misleading: it is located right opposite the city’s great Santa Cruz cathedral on one of the most beautiful squares in old Cádiz. Even better, Hotel La Catedral boasts a spectacular rooftop solarium from which you can cool off in the infinity jacuzzi pool whilst gazing straight across at the cathedral’s façade. The rooms are smart and modern and are all individually-themed around a famous person, work of art or monument from Cádiz. There is also a sleek in-house bar with a terrace outside on Plaza de la Catedral.
If you’re heading to Cádiz for a beach holiday then Hotel Monte Puertatierra takes some beating. It is located just a two minute walk to Playa Santa Maria or ten minutes on foot to Playa de la Victoria, both of which offer wonderful swimming and untarnished yellow sands. The rooms are spacious and get plenty of natural light, opening as the majority do, onto the bustling Avendida Andalucia below. Facilities include a TV room, a bar/café and a gym and the old town is about a ten/fifteen minute walk away.
The charming Hotel Argantonio is located on the edge of the classy San Carlos neighbourhood and a two-minute stroll away from the Plaza España and Monumento 1812. The singles and doubles are housed in a traditional Andalusian building with a pretty fountain on the ground floor courtyard and a rooftop terrace offering fantastic views of the Cádiz skyline. The hotel also offers apartments for families or large groups, which are elegantly decorated and feature fully-equipped kitchens and their own private terraces.
If you’re planning a trip to Cádiz that revolves around Playa la Victoria, its biggest and best beach, book a room at Hotel Regio, which is just 200 metres from the unblemished sand and bright blue waters. The hotel is situated in one of the more modern, residential parts of the city and there are plenty of bars and restaurants on the central thoroughfare of Avenida Andalucia; the old town, meanwhile, is about a 20 minute walk or short bus ride away. Guests praise the warm service, the varied breakfast and the price-quality relationship.
