From converted convents and beachfront penthouses, to cathedral views and rooftop pools, choose where to stay in Cadiz with my guide to the best hotels in the city.
Caidz is one of my favourite cities in Spain. It’s historic, quaint and charming. It’s somewhere to get lost in its beautiful ancient streets, tuck into tapas on the street and relax on the beach. You can do as much or as little as you like there, and still have a wonderful time.
It’s one of Andalusia’s prettiest cities. The city centre is almost completely surrounded by the sea, meaning there’s no shortage of beaches. Plus there are plenty of winding streets leading to pretty plazas – each filled with the vibrant atmosphere that the region is famous for.
Cadiz boasts some of the most beautiful architecture in Southern Spain too. Stops on your trip should include the 18th century baroque-style cathedral just a stone’s throw from the sea, and the iconic Torre Tavira – the city’s watchtower which has some incredible views. Before you go, be sure to check out my Cadiz travel guide, which is packed full of places to visit and tips for your trip.
If you’re a foodie, you’ll love Mercado Central (Cadiz’s central market) where you can mingle with the locals and taste some of Spain’s freshest fish and seafood. If you prefer to soak up the sun, head on over to Playa La Caleta, Cadiz’s gorgeous beach!
But whoaaaa – before you dive headfirst into the city’s history and beauty, you’re probably wondering where to stay in Cadiz.
There are so many hotels to choose from, but to make things easier, I’ve put together a guide to the best hotels in Cadiz to suit all budgets, yep even those really small ones!
