Airport Hotels and Accommodation
Located 9 km / 6 miles west of the city, Valencia Airport (VLC) is the chief gateway for business travellers to Valencia and for those visiting the Costa del Azahar for holiday purposes. The airport is a relatively small facility, although its passenger figures have been steadily rising over the past five years, recently seeing five million travellers pass through the facility.

Full of history, culture and action, Valencia city centre is characterised by its charming cobblestone streets and old buildings, with many notable hotels being situated in this part of the city.
