Valencia contains fewer hotels than other major cities in Spain. At the same time Valencia has in recent years become an increasingly popular tourist destination, so as a result the best hotels in Valencia soon become fully booked, and reservations in advance therefore is advisable.
Hotels in Valencia are particular busy in the summer months, and during the city's popular festivals, which include February carnivals, the Las Fallas in March, Holy Week and Easter celebrations, Corpus Christi in June and the San Juan bonfires towards the end of June.
Many of Valencia's main hotels are located close to the coastline and beaches, but some popular hotels can be found in the heart of the historic center of town and around the Old Quarter, where you will find a range of 19th century hotels, full of character and charm.
Further hotels and a variety of affordable accommodation can be found throughout the Barrio del Carmen area, the Canovas shopping district, and around the main university campus, where some of the best restaurants in Valencia can be found.
Close to Valencia, the nearby town of Pucol contains a number of noteworthy hotels, often with views of the Monte Picayo Mountain and the Mediterranean Sea.
