Holiday Accommodation In Valencia Spain

by : Gaizka Pujana

There are many options to suit all sorts of styles and budgets. In addition to this, the holiday accommodation options can be found in different areas of the city and so this is another thing that must be taken into consideration when choosing somewhere to stay. Valencia has around a hundred hotels, fifty hostels, 420 apartments, thirty five campsites and two spas so there is certainly generally no shortage of options.

There are hotels that can be found in the center of the city, at the beach, at the modern city of Arts and Science (CAS), at the Palacio de Congressos area and in the bus station area. Valencia is quite a center-focused city and therefore staying in the center is a good option for any tourist who wants to see the sights of the city. Here you will be able to find tourist attractions, shopping, cultural events, vibrant nightlife and tasty restaurants. It can be noisy at night, so keep that in mind. If you find a hotel near a metro station, you will have quick and convenient travel options within the city. It is not within walking distance to the beach so if you want to spend a lot of time on the beach, perhaps you should consider staying closer to coast.

You can find a number of luxury hotels at the beach. If you are looking for a beach holiday, soaking up the sun, this is the place for you. If you are after more from your trip to Valencia, you may however, find it a bit out of the way and boring. CAS is an up-market area with good hotels, excellent shopping and a beautiful view. Unfortunately, it does not offer much else. It is well located between the beach and the center of the city though if you want to spend some time in both places. The Palacio de Congressos area is only well suited to the business traveler as it has luxury hotels, but is far from both the beach and the center of the city.

Hostels are an excellent option for the backpacker or those traveling on a tight budget. They are located in backpacker friendly, vibrant locations. Unfortunately, they are limited and so they book up fast. You will need to reserve a place well in advance if you want to stay in one. Hostals are not the same as hostels. Hostals are small, generally family-run, hotels with dorm rooms. They are cheaper than staying in a hotel, but are not as social for the backpacker as the hostels are. Albergues or pensions may have shared bathrooms unless you pay extra for a private one.

It is possible to find short term or long term holiday apartment rentals. This will suit a family or group of travelers. They offer more space and privacy than staying in a hotel. They are self-catered options and will give you a better feel of the city than in a hotel environment.
