There’s a good range of places to stay in all three of the most attractive areas – Barrio de Santa Cruz (close to the Alcázar and within walking distance of Prado de San Sebastián bus station), El Arenal (convenient for Plaza de Armas bus station) and El Centro. Room rates are for each establishment’s high season – typically from March to June and again in September and October. During Semana Santa and the Feria de Abril rates are invariably doubled and sell out completely. Book ahead at this time. Renting a tourist apartment here can be good value: typically costing under €100 a night for four people, or between €30 and €70 for two.
