Valencia for long weekend, where is good location for hotel

Heading to Valencia for a long weekend in August and am wondering what is a good lcoation for a hotel. Ideally we would like to be walking dstance from bars and restaurants and things.

Is the Old Town the best place to stay?

Re beaches, how easy are they to get to, walking taxi or metro?

Any other recommendations?

Helle Alan,

Indeed the Historical Center would be the most charming place to stay. It has cosy bars and restaurants, not to be found on the beach. To get to the beach take the metro or a taxi at 7 euro from the ALAMEDA stop next to the Museo Belles Atres, behind the cathedral at Plaza Virgen, historical center. There is a less touristy beach at El Saler, south of Valencia, 12 euro by taxi from old town, great paella to be had at LÁr D´Ampar Pinedo @ 15 euro instead of 50 euro per person as offered on Malvarosa beach. Have fun ! Dany.

Downtown is the Plaza del Ayuntamiento. I stayed there at a good hotel called the Melia Plaza.

Hi!

As Benny has said, the Plaza del Ayuntamiento is a good place to be based for seeing all of the city and close to the bars and restaurants. There are plenty of good hotels situated in and around the plaza.

Dany failed to inform you that there are several buses that go to the beach and are very convenient for travel; the Metro journey involves a change to the tram line, but they both share the same platform at Maritim-Serreria station. There is a combined ticket offering unlimited travel within zone 1 - basically the city centre and the beach - for tram, Metro and bus that costs the equivalent of €3.25 per day (single tickets cost €1.50 each).
