Eixample is formed from three boroughs within Valencia – Russafa, Gran Via and Play del Remei.

Eixample is a typical residential area with many Valencia’s living and working within its boundaries.

Expect to find excellent restaurants and cafes that the locals frequent and cheaper prices in comparison to the more touristy areas of the city.

Prices increase when dining in Russafa as the area is fast becoming a trendy hotspot. 

Eixample as a neighbourhood, does not have many green spaces and parks, but on its eastern side, it is very close to Valencia’s largest park and gardens, Turia Gardens.

The neighbourhood is fast becoming one of the city’s most sought-after areas for residential homes thanks to its multicultural appeal, proximity to the centre, and range of shops, supermarkets and restaurants.

Many visitors also look to Eixample to escape the typical tourist centre and discover a more authentic city area.

For the trendiest bars and restaurants, head to Russafa, where you will find some of the best examples of local Valencian food in the city.

Eixample is well connected to the rest of the city, with most attractions reachable following a short walk.

During the week, the area is relatively quiet as it is less popular with tourists, however, on a weekend, it can become much more lively and noisier as locals seek to blow off steam and relax after the working week.


  • Trendy area with lots of local restaurants
  • Close to the historic centre


  • No metro station
  • Can be expensive for dining

There are several areas with low-cost hotels when deciding where to stay in Valencia on a budget.

Extramurs is formed of Arrancapins, el Botanic, la Petunia and la Roqueta.

This neighbourhood is close to the historic centre and has excellent access to the city’s train stations and good public transport links.

The neighbourhood lies outside the walls of the old city. As the neighbourhood is quite large, where you stay within it truly varies in terms of its benefits and drawbacks.

Much of Extramurs lacks green open spaces and is predominately built up with residential housing as you move further away from the tourist centre.

There are, however, plenty of shops, bars and restaurants throughout the area to explore.

To get closer to green spaces, book your Extramurs hotel in el Botanic, as this area gets its name from its proximity to the botanical gardens.

It is close to the Museum of Natural History and a short walk from Turia Garden.

The largest shopping centre in the neighbourhood is also within el Botanic.

La Petxina is closer to the historic centre and a stone’s throw away from Mercat Central and the cathedral.

It is also close to Turia Gardens, with a small portion of the area crossing this vital green space.
