Valencia experts: Trying to decide Valencia hotel location for Easter

Jump to last reply

Hi folks. I'm just finishing up arrangements for the pre- and post-trip days of a cycling trip in Mallorca. The cycling trip ends Good Friday; we fly home from Madrid the Tuesday after Easter Sunday.

Since we have to pay the penalty of staying over Easter (crowds, some closed restaurants and shops Easter Monday, etc), I thought, "Heck, let's go somewhere to enjoy the hoopla."

Ergo, I have settled on flying into Valencia from Madrid Easter Saturday a.m. and staying at least Sat and Sunday nights to allow us to catch the Maritime Easter Procession in the El Cabanyal district.

But I am having a hard time deciding whether or not to stay in the El Cabanyal area, which can be seedy in spots and is far from not only the city center but also the airport from which we will arrive and the train station by which we would leave. The huge plus in staying around there is that there would be no way we'd miss the action Easter morning.

My alternative is to stay in the city center, where we would have immediate access to all the things we'd want to see Easter Saturday and Easter Monday, plus easier entry Saturday a.m. to get from the airport. Staying in the city center would mean I'd probably have the option of staying Easter Monday evening and catching a fast train Tuesday to Madrid to meet our 12:30 pm flight out.

So does anyone have an opinion?????
