The best Valencia cheap hotels

Tryp Valencia Feria

The always-reliable Meliá chain has a wide range of options in Valencia, with this, the cheapest, offering rooms from just £33. The price reflects a location that’s not the closest to town, but it does have fast links with the city, bright, neutrally decorated rooms, an outdoor swimming pool set in gardens, a terrace, 24/7 gym and free wifi. For around £20 more, you could opt instead for the Tryp Valencia Azafata, which is more stylish and right next to the airport. Your extra euros give you free airport transfers and breakfast buffet, plus an outdoor swimming pool, gym and sauna.

Hotel Sercotel Sorolla Palace

With its indoor and outdoor pools, far-reaching views, smart, comfortable rooms and free breakfast, this four-star high-rise near the Palace of Congress in the financial district is a steal with rooms from £60. Rooms are modern, smart and spacious, the gym and squash facilities make workouts easy, and a fetching terrace with loungers is a great spot from which to order a cocktail.   


Hostal Antigua Morellana

A perfect old town location next to the fifteenth-century silk exchange La Lonja and the city’s beautiful central market would make this a must without the £50 price tag, but add that in, as well as characterful boutique-style décor in an eighteenth-century building, and it’s a real winner. All 18 individually furnished, colourful rooms (some with balconies) have free wifi, and the rate includes free tea and access to a small coffee lounge. Breakfast is available at a nearby restaurant.

Hostal Venecia

In a gorgeous nineteenth-century corner building on La Plaza del Ayuntamiento, this simply decorated hotel has an undeniable warmth to spaces in which wooden floors and bold splashes of colour create a sense of charm and individuality. The nicest rooms are those with balconies on the square, but everyone gets free wifi, buffet breakfast served in a pretty dining room, and easy access to the best of the old town bars, restaurants and attractions.


Ad Hoc Carmen

Colour-filled modern rooms in the heart of the old town can be had here from around £50, and many of them feature wooden beams and other elements from the original building, which dates from the fifteenth century. Rooms are all original – some have mezzanine bedrooms, others terraces – but if the zany colourways in all of them are a bit much, sister hotel Monumental, next to the Turia Gardens, is like a classy older sibling, and has rooms for around £20 more.

One Shot Colón 46 and Mercat 09

Design is to the fore at all the One Shot hotels in Valencia, which, at the Colón 46 and Mercat 09, offers rooms from well under £100. Colon 46, on buzzy Colon, is perfect for shopaholics, and features contemporary, colour-filled rooms with designs by the likes of Philippe Stark and Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola; the interesting styling continues beyond the rooms to the façade, which features a funky blue and white geometric graphic. Mercat 09 adds a seasonal pool and old town location.


Sleep and Fly

The name might suggest an airport location, but this budget option has a central location, and is amazing value at £30 a night. For that you get free wifi and laundry in bright, vibrant rooms seemingly furnished throughout by IKEA (and fab terrazzo flooring) plus an airport shuttle, access to a shared kitchen and even bike hire; perfect for cycling through the nearby Turia Gardens to the beach.

Jardín Botánico Hotel Boutique

Filled with light, the tasteful rooms at this boutique hotel in an historic building near the popular Carmen district look far more expensive than the £60 you could pay for them. All come with free wifi and breakfast (served next door), and if you’re an art fan; you’ll appreciate the proximity to the IVAM Modern Art Museum – an easy cycle on one of the hotel’s hire bikes. 


Casual Valencia de las Artes

This chain hotel looks anything but, with stylish rooms (from around £40) and an imposing marble lobby in an arresting art nouveau building. As the name would suggest it’s filled with art, colour and a sense of fun – check out Velazquez’s Las Meninas in the lift, complete with a cut-out for you to insert your head, and peek into guest rooms to see giant murals showing different famous art reproductions. A heated indoor pool and sauna, gym, free wifi, Mifi devices and selfie sticks add to appeal, and it’s all about a 15-minute walk from the City of Arts and Sciences.

Hotel Balandret

This small, stylish boutique beachfront hotel (with rooms from around £55 a night) sets cool Scandi-style furnishings against a pretty Mediterranean colour palette, dotted with bright contemporary takes on traditional Spanish motifs like azulejos tiles. It’s a lovely mix, particularly if you’ve bagged a room with a sea view, but even if you haven’t, you can enjoy the views from the large terrace over your free buffet breakfast and wifi.
