Where to Stay in Almeria?
Located on the Andalucian coast, Almeria, is (thankfully) not yet as geared up to tourists as the Costa del Sol further down the coast, but there is still a good range of hotels - and hotels deals - on offer. There is a cluster of decent three-star hotels around central Almeria’s main attractions in the area just west of Parque de Castilla. If you stay here you can walk to the fortress-like cathedral, the historic St James Church and the Las Claras Church and the bars and restaurants of Puerta de Purchena and the Paseo de Almeria.
If you fancy staying in a hotel overlooking the beach, travel west along the coast towards popular Almeria resort Roquetas de Mar. Even before you get to the main area, you’ll come across some good four star hotels hugging the coastline, with more as you get into the centre of the resort. Families looking for a little more space can head inland where idyllic rural villas are for rent in this desert-like mountainous Spanish region.
Almeria Accommodation Options
Hotels in Almeria range from small cabana type huts with pools and air con to luxury boutique establishments tucked away in the countryside. You’ll find mainly three- and four-star establishments around Almeria’s old quarter where the region’s major tourist attractions are located. Thanks to the rural nature of Andalucia, those with tight budgets to consider can go camping – sites dot the foothills across the larger Almeria area.
Roquetas de Mar is very popular with holidaymakers to this part of Andalucia and it has dozens of four-star seaview hotels with lots of facilities. Roquetas focuses more on the sun, sea and sand family holidays whereas Almeria’s hotels tend to be quieter. Nature lovers and walkers should look into hotels that skirt the Cabo de Gata-Nijar natural park, close to Almeria.
Almeria Hotel Recommendations?
The 19th Century Hotel Catedral offers great views of the city’s impressive 16th Century cathedral. Try CityMar Indalico if you are looking for a good rate for a centrally located hotel in Almeria. To get away from it all, try the Hotel Rural Cortijo La Alberca a 250-year old farm set in the foothills of the Alhamilla Mountains.
Transport in Almeria
Almeria’s airport is just six miles from the centre of town and regular buses service the route. Once in town, you can walk quite happily between all the major attractions and the seafront. If you fancy a trip along the coast to Almeria’s coastal resorts, buses link most of them but taxis are in plentiful supply. It also provides easy access to the Costa del Sol and the Sierra Nevada.
