Where is the best area to stay in Cadiz?
If you are going to visit the city of Cadiz, which is truly one of a kind, you should make sure to stay in the old town, the city´s best area to stay. The city has two main areas with good hotel offerings, the Victoria beach area and the old town in the historical centre.
The Victoria beach is one of the best urban beaches in Europe. The beach stretches for more than 3km and offers all the services and leisure activities one would look for in a beach destination. It´s a great option if you are looking to combine beach with city.
However, if you would like to experience the authentic Cadiz, you should stay in the old town. Its narrow streets lead you down into the depths of its ample historical heritage, while the bars and shops are there to tempt us all day long. The Cathedral square is one of the references that can be used to judge if your hotel is near the centre. Many hotels in the centre are housed within old, historical buildings and don´t have space for many rooms, meaning it is best to book early, especially at busy times such as carnival.
