The Casual Valencia Village is a friendly, centrally located budget hotel, with colorful and quirky decor, and guestrooms with welcoming finishing touches like premium bedding, flat-screen TVs, and free toiletries.

The Casual Valencia de las Civilizaciones, meanwhile, boasts opulent interiors, and spacious, air-conditioned rooms complete with memory foam mattresses and free WiFi.

Where to find cheap food in Valencia

Barrio del Carmen is packed with friendly neighborhood tapas bars, where you can graze on small plates of delectable roast ham, crispy fried squid, or spicy patatas bravas, all for pocket change. Some of the area’s more upscale restaurants also offer great value set menus, particularly at lunchtime. In the hip, cosmopolitan Ruzafa district, you’ll find buzzing eateries serving Middle Eastern treats like home-made hummus and flavorsome falafel wraps. At Malvarossa Beach, you’ll find reasonably-priced seafront restaurants, where you can stuff yourself with authentic wood-fired pizza or fresh pasta.

Cheap things to do in Valencia

Valencia Cathedral, which dates back to the 13th century, is one of the city’s star attractions. It’s a 1-stop lesson in architectural history, with a spectacular interior that draws inspiration from Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Neo-Classical traditions. You can also marvel at priceless paintings by the legendary Francisco Goya, and at an ancient chalice, believed by some to be the Holy Grail. The entrance fee is very reasonable, and includes a free audio guide. Housed in a spectacular early 20th-century modernist building, the Central Market is one of the top spots in the city for people watching, with locals poring over colorful fruits and vegetables, cured meats, and fresh flowers. If you feel like escaping the hustle and bustle, you can enjoy an idyllic, low-cost day out at Malvarrosa Beach, an exquisite stretch of white sand, flanked by a broad, palm-lined promenade.

Cheap ways to get around Valencia

You can enjoy a break in Valencia without spending a cent on transport beyond airport transfers. Most of the major central attractions are within easy walking distance of one another, and the city’s beguiling alleyways and pristine period architecture are best explored on foot. To get to the beach or the City of Arts and Science, you can get there cheaply and quickly by Metro or bus. The city’s public bicycle hire scheme is a cost-effective way to get around, and a pre-paid short-term pass allows unlimited journeys under 30 minutes for a week.
