Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.

  • Cosy, quiet, savory and surprising. Very good value for money. It consists of a 4-small dishes menu and a dessert. They let you change any ingredient if you are allergic or don't like some thing. We will definitely come back again and recommend it to our friends.
  • There's such a choice of fish, meat and fruit & vegetables and it's all fresh. It's easy to find but most of all its cheap. Surrounded by cafes and restaurants you can make a day of it.
  • Incredible experience! The fruit is cheaper, the ham and cheese is superb and you can find a lot of tasty treats from Spanish cuisine. Very clean, organised and tourist-friendly. A MUST in your trip to Valencia.
  • If you visit Valencia make time to visit this place! It's definitely worth it as you can take a look and also taste the culture. I visited it in September and I was very pleased with the place. The architecture is lovely, the food fresh and delicious and the atmosphere very nice. It's very popular with tourists. You'll have to visit it during the first part of the day as they close it everyday after 3PM.
  • The Central Market in Valencia is just a wonderful place where you can buy all the fresh food such as vegetable, fruit, meat but also spices etc. Once you visit this place you will fall in love with it. The smell, the colours and all the nice and always smiling sellers... Just be careful with the prices because the same product can cost you different from the different sellers.
