Best Boutique Hotels in Valencia
1. Caro Hotel
Located in the center of the city, near some of Valencia’s unmissable sights, the Caro Hotel seamlessly combines luxury architecture and design with boutique attention to detail. Formerly a palace for the Marqués de Caro, renovators incorporated historical remains into the hotel’s unique design. Apart from pieces of the old Roman city wall, you can also find remains of the 12th-century Arab wall of the city.
The food at the Caro Hotel is top quality, with a variety of vegetarian options on the menu. If you’re looking for a casual drink, the terrace of the Meta Bar is cozy and inviting. It’s the perfect way to spend a romantic evening in the city. With attentive service, top quality rooms and facilities, all at a reasonable price, Caro Hotel is definitely one of the best boutique hotels in Valencia.

2. Hospes Palau de la Mar
Although technically part of the Hospes chain of hotels, Palau de la Mar has all the personality and charm of the best boutique hotels in Valencia. Another converted palace, this time from the 19th century, the impressive staircase is just one thing that still remains from the original building. The decoration of this hotel, with subtle tones of white, beige and gray, creates a soothing atmosphere. It’s unlike any other 5-star hotel we’ve visited. Also, don’t miss out on the spectacular spa, including massage facilities, a small pool, and steam room. Although located in the center of the city, you’ll struggle to leave the comfort of this spectacular hotel.

For the ultimate Hotel Boutique Balandret experience, request a room with a seaside view. Unusually, the restaurant is open all day and produces some good-quality food.
