Valencia in southern Spain is a perfect weekend-break destination, equal parts old city and beach beauty, with some stunning modern injections from architectural starchitect Santiago Calatrava, such as the sensational City of Arts and Sciences, which looks like a dinosaur skeleton from outer space. You’ll eat well, drink even better and at these luxury hotels in Valencia, Spain, you’ll sleep super-soundly – what’s more, they’re bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Hotel Palacio Vallier

This site of this 19th-century building has at turns been a Roman perfumery, a Spanish aristocrat’s home and a courthouse. Today you’ll find it furnished with the glossy aesthetic of a top-end fashion boutique: marble floors, lavish floral arrangements, embellished mirrors and monochromatic furniture. Its rooftop bar is surrounded by some of the handsomest rooftops in the old town, including the Palau de la Generalitat and the Basílica de la Virgen de los Desamparados.

2. Hospes Palau de la Mar

In the Eixample district, close to the long, snaking Jardí del Túria gardens, this wedding-cake white mansion is favoured by couples in search of affordable style. Rooms are lined with smart dark woods, white linens and soft-glowing lanterns, and the facilities are fab, including a spa with a huge whirlpool offering Balinese rituals in which you’re enveloped in fragrant papaya body masks. We also like the rooftop relaxation deck, fine-dining restaurant and leafy tapas terrace.

3. Caro Hotel Valencia

Surrounded by must-see landmarks, this luxry boutique hotel in Valencia has charmed the jet set with its clean, modern design, its slabs of ancient stone wall and its 12th-century Arabic tower. There’s a minimalist Michelin-starred restaurant, Sucede, a plunge pool on a chic wooden deck and many other luxe touches that elevate the hotel above the competition. Among them are a free minibar, Bulgari toiletries, welcome drinks vouchers and a selection of pillows to choose from.

4. Hotel Las Arenas Balneario Resort

This is a full-blown holiday resort of a hotel behind Cabanyal Beach. It has manicured gardens with palms, fountains and outdoor seating, a glimmering blue-mosaic spa and an enormous outdoor pool. Stay here for 24/7 service and assistance with everything from airport transfers to special dietary requirements. It’s around a 20-minute walk to many of the sights, but you’ll be coming back from your excursions to a spacious, relaxing complex and a tranquil sea view.

5. Vincci Palace

Vincci Palace, an eye-catching design hotel in the thick of the old town, is quite a place, where emerald tiles coat a gilded cocktail bar, indoor palms are encircled by smooth concrete bases and velvet-accented chairs sit beneath papery lanterns. The vibe is contemporary art deco, although bedrooms are more muted in white and lilac, some with canopied four-posters or plush private terraces. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to nearby restaurants and bars, too.

6. Only You Hotel Valencia

There’s a Mediterranean flair to this boutique five-star luxury hotel in Valencia, with cascading glass bars, sculptural light fixtures and engraved terracotta walls dreamed up by interiors star Lázaro Rosa-Violán. Set to open in September 2021, it’s a real looker from a brand stylish Spanish travellers trust to be sociable – expect mingling in its copper-accented Trotamundos restaurant, and over cocktails on a monochromatic rooftop terrace with views of the elegant architecture all around.

7. Hotel Marqués House

This pad is on the swanky side of four stars, set in a period townhouse with a white facade. Swirling wrought-iron balconies, chandeliers and tasselled lamps light its famous Cafe de Madrid, which has been around since 1940. Cushioned loungers line the suntrap roof terrace. Rooms are smart and contemporary, some with free-standing tubs in marble and gold bathrooms. Best of all is the location, on a film-set pretty street, within a 10-minute walk of most sights.

8. Helen Berger Hotel and Bar

In the oldest neighbourhood of the city, La Seu, is this boutique beauty, with 34 rooms elevated by parquet flooring, elegant black-framed furniture and mirrors, glossy wood panelling and plants, all stacked over a sharply styled bar and restaurant. Hang out downstairs over burrata salad or tacos, and book the penthouse for one of the most glamorous apartment-style spaces in town, complete with discreet white terraces for breakfast or peaceful lounging.
