01 Hotel Dimar
The 96 rooms are on the corporate side but its location is hard to beat, fronting the lively Gran Via (double-glazing keeps noise at bay). Plus you're close to the Metro and the Old Town is a brisk walk away. Alternatively, spin off on one of the hotel's bikes. Rooms have air-con, minibar, and free wi-fi. Doubles from £50. hotel-dimar.com

02 Hotel Silken Puerta Valencia
This seven-storey hotel sits between the Old Town and the Oceanographic — the dazzling marine park. Staff are lovely and the restaurant dishes up a decent paella. Rooms are functional but best value are the suites, for a sun-dappled balcony and late check-out. Suites from £75. hoteles-silken.com

03 Valencia Mindfulness Retreat
This Old Town B&B is a mix of private apartments and cosy rooms, some with private bathrooms, two with balconies. Bottled water, wi-fi and a laundry service are all free. Plus there's massage, meditation and yoga. Doubles from £82. valenciamindfulnessretreat.org

04 Hotel Hospes Palau de la Mar
Behind the handsome facade is an elegant, airy palace of marble pillars and caramel sofas, plus a zen-like spa. Whether you face the courtyard or the street, all 60 bedrooms (the best of which are at the top) have fresh-fruit drinks in the minibar and wi-fi. Doubles from £98. hospes.com
