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.
Location is the main draw at this convenient pick. The MD Modern Hotel Jardines is a small, friendly hotel with 18 rooms and free wifi and air conditioning. It’s perfectly situated for visits to the Turia Gardens and the Palau de la Musica concert venue, and is in the L’Eixample area, famous for its cool bars and chic boutique shops. It’s also just a 15-minute walk from the Old Town. It’s the perfect stopover for those who want to get out and explore the city and need a clean, comfortable, no-frills stay.
Arty, modern decor, plenty of natural light and attention to detail make Valencia Lounge Hostel feel surprisingly posh for the price. It’s located in the bohemian El Carmen neighbourhood, a part of the Old Town known for its hip nightlife and street art, and is in easy walking distance of all the main sights. The accommodation has 10 private rooms, which are either ensuite or share bathrooms, and all rooms include a balcony and heating. Free wifi is available in the common areas, including the TV lounge, and bikes are available for rent.
Located right in the centre of Valencia on a main road, the modern three-star Sweet Hotel Renasa is a friendly place to stay. It offers good value for money, and has a total of 73 single, double, twin and triple rooms. All come with ensuite bathrooms and air conditioning and there is free wifi throughout. The hotel is within easy walking distance of many famous attractions, including the City of Arts and Sciences.
Tucked away in Valencia’s Camins al Grau neighbourhood, Original Domino House Hotel is favoured for its clean, modern design and central location. It’s just a 10-minute walk to Malvarrosa beach and very close to the City of Arts and Sciences. Choose from a single, twin or double room; there are also adapted rooms for disabled guests. Take advantage of the bike rental service at reception to explore the city.
Basic yet friendly and modern, the brightly decorated Pensión Universal has an unbeatable central location next to the Town Hall square – perfect if you want to be right among the hustle and bustle. You’ll be able to spend plenty of time visiting the enchanting Old Town sights, including the cathedral and Silk Exchange, and enjoying its bars and restaurants. There’s everything you would expect to find at a friendly budget guest house, including wifi, TV and shared cooking facilities.
