Family friendly travelling in Valencia

Most popular areas in Valencia for family-friendly hotels

You’ll find a wealth of family friendly hotels located in Barrio del Carmen, Valencia’s charming old town. Stay here and you’ll find everything from welcoming restaurants to picturesque, tree-lined plazas. For something completely different, base yourselves near the City of Arts and Science, a space-age cultural quarter, which looks like something from a sci-fi movie. For a restful family break, stay out of town by Malvarrosa Beach, an idyllic stretch of powder-soft sand, flanked by glistening blue ocean on one side, and a lively, restaurant-lined promenade on the other.

Top family-friendly hotels in Valencia

The Ayre Hotel Astoria Palace is an elegant, centrally located hotel, with spacious, stylishly decorated guestrooms, and the option of extra rollaway beds or free cribs. The Melia Valencia is a luxurious high-rise hotel, with an on-site restaurant that offers a kid’s menu, and a lavish breakfast buffet to lure you out of bed each morning. The Hospes Palau de la Mar is located in affluent Eixample, in a beautifully restored period building. The whole family can have fun splashing around in the indoor pool, and there are childcare services, should you need time to yourself.

Where to find the best restaurants in Valencia

There’s an abundance of family-friendly, reasonably-priced restaurants in Barrio del Carmen, with something to delight even the fussiest of eaters. A traditional tapas feast makes for a fun and novel evening out with kids – order small plates of crispy squid, cured ham, and succulent shrimp, and share away. In Eixample, you’ll find long-established eateries where you can feast on paella, packed with colorful vegetables and chunks of succulent chicken. For al fresco dining at its most spectacular, head to a sea view terrace on Malvarrosa Beach, and enjoy homemade pasta or wood-fired pizza.

The most popular things to do in Valencia

Conveniently, many of Valencia’s top family attractions are located within the City of Arts and Science, a stone’s throw away from one another. The Oceanografic is perhaps chief among these. Visitors of all ages will be transfixed by this colossal, state-of-the-art aquarium, which is home to 1,000s of mesmerizing ocean dwellers, from loveable dolphins to graceful tiger sharks. The nearby Hemisfèric offers a movie-going experience like no other, with a huge concave screen that makes you feel like you’re literally inside the film. Most screenings are family-friendly, and many are geared specifically towards kids. The Principe Felipe Science Museum thrills from the moment you set eyes on it, with its astonishing exterior, designed to look like a whale’s skeleton. Step inside and you’ll find interactive, kid-friendly exhibits about technology, science, and the great mysteries of the universe.

Best ways to get around Valencia

Getting around Valencia is generally hassle-free, even if you have a whole troop to ferry around. For the most part, you should find that you can get by on foot – the city center is relatively compact, and most of the major sights are within easy walking distance of one another. If you want to explore the City of Arts or Science, or enjoy a day at the beach, make use of the Metro system or bus network, both of which are efficient and inexpensive.
