Find out where to base your break in Valencia to make the most of your holiday time...
Hotels in Valencia are mostly located in the city centre, which features the Old Quarter at its historical heart. This area is bordered by the gardens of Turia and there are some wonderful hotels overlooking the lush parkland.
In Valencia, hotels boasting four and five stars are commonplace, ranging from those in grand historical buildings to those in modern skyscrapers, where floor to ceiling windows offer terrific views of the city.
There are some central budget hotels, which get booked up fast, and a few more a little further from the main attractions. It's best to stay as centrally as possible to make the most of things to see and do, though Valencia is an impossibly pretty place and pounding the pavements is a constant pleasure.
Look out for some of the big brands that have hotels in the city. Pick from the likes of Melia, Sol, Tryp, Abba, AC Hotels, NH Hoteles, Westin, Holiday Inn, Eurostars and Best Western.
Valencia hotels are keen to fill rooms in the winter months, when average temperatures drop to 10C and rain keeps the greenery lush; if you don't mind wearing a jumper and carrying an umbrella, you could find a bargain hotel in Valencia between October and March.
