If you’re looking for a Spanish holiday destination that won’t break the bank, Valencia is a great choice. The tourist crowds of Barcelona and Madrid seem very far away, meaning prices are lower and you can experience more of the city’s authentic charms. Accommodation prices are higher by the beach, but if you’re looking for a city centre break within walking distance of the main sights, there are plenty of wallet-friendly options. Here’s our pick of the best cheap hotels in Valencia – all bookable with Culture Trip.

1. MD Modern Hotel Jardines
