The commonest boast of a Murcia hotel is that it is opposite or very close to the cathedral. Nearly every hotel states its distance from the city’s key landmark. Understandably so, too, for the cathedral and surrounding old town is a great holiday location. With attractive lanes lined with cafes, boutiques and bars, staying here offers the quintessential Murcian experience.
Limited space along the narrow streets also makes this the place to find stylish boutiques. An arty vibe pervades the affordable Zenit Murcia, with its low-hanging lights and minimal, subdued-palette rooms.
A little north east of Murcia’s centre is the financial district, which is littered with green spaces, and is also home to the Museum of Fine Arts. Typified by the four-star Hotel Nelva, places to stay here tend to be modern and spacious, with gardens and pools on offer. You’re only a pleasant 10-minute stroll from the main action too.
Nearby is Atalayas, a quarter known for its shopping mall and nightclubs. If you’re in Murcia chiefly to party, then a hotel around here will ensure it’s only a short stumble home.
Murcia’s most luxurious residences are located on either side of the Rio Segura. The Catalonia Conde De Floridablanca is a pleasant hotel situated in Barrio del Carmen, a traditional area south of the river. Its Jardin de Floridablanca is prime book-reading or people-watching territory.
Back in Murcia’s old town, the four-star Arco de San Juan is housed in an 18th-century palace and is the city’s most A-list address.
The Avenida Juan Carlos I slinks away northwards from the old town, and along it are a good selection of cheap Murcia beds in both chain and independent hotels.
As well as offering the cheapest stays in Murcia, this location is ideal for escapes to the dreamy Ricote Valley, where hiking and biking routes sashay between fruit farms.
Murcia’s hotels are cheapest during summer and winter, especially on school nights. Deals are common, especially in summer when occupancy rates slightly drop off.
July and August are scorching, so – if travelling then – seek somewhere with a pool to allow for afternoon dips. You can find a hotel with a pool using the search filters on TravelSupermarket.
