It's quite small and unassuming but once you get settled in at a table, a few hours can easily pass by. They have good wifi, several outlets and good, inexpensive coffee and pastries. It can get a little loud if it's crowded but that's the only downside.

Many remote workers come here every day to work, mainly because it's super friendly and welcoming, the coffee is probably the best in Valencia and the wifi always works well. You can't go wrong working from here.

My favorite place to work, mainly due to its size. It offers a huge cafe with super high ceilings and an old world charm. You'll find plenty of seating and plenty of plug outlets. They have a big menu too, although it is a little pricier than other cafes, mainly because of its central location. The wifi is usually strong but there have been times when it goes down.

Reliable cafe/restaurant for a couple of hours of online work. Wifi always works well, they have a bunch of tables to choose from and a nice vegetarian menu as well. The afternoons are usually quiet which is why I usually show up at 3pm.

Not a huge cafe but very comfortable for working. Simple menu of fresh food and great wifi. Not many plugs though so make sure your laptop is charged!

Doesn't look like much from the outside but when you walk in, you'll discover a large back area that is simply perfect for a few hours of work. Beautifully designed, bright and usually with plenty of empty seats. The food is good too with a breakfast menu for only 2.5 Euros. Wifi can be slow at times but usually good enough for general work.

Reliable as any Starbucks and very central. Small tables, big sofas and large comfy chairs available, along with strong wifi. It can get crowded at times though.

This was my go to place when I lived in El Cabanyal. Spacious, comfortable, plenty of natural light, good wifi and a decent selection of food and drinks at very reasonable prices. There's a street market every Wednesday in front of the cafe so it's impossible to get in during that. Otherwise, it's rarely full.
By Lilly Y. for Pannes Bakery & Coffee cafe. Workspaces
A great option for working when the cafe is quiet. During busy times they do limit the amount of time you can spend at a table with your laptop. But when it's quiet, the setting is cozy, the wifi strong and the food incredible!

This neighborhood is my little secret! I've lived here for 2 years now and wouldn't live anywhere else in Valencia. It's right on the other side of Turia Park and it's laid-back with plenty of apartment options. I can walk to the park in five minutes, I have the metro nearby and I'm halfway between the beach areas and the old city. With my bike I can reach either one in 10 minutes!

The old city has its charm for sure but for long term living, keep in mind that it's expensive, quite touristy and busier than other parts of Valencia. Before renting an apartment here, I would spend a few days in the area to see if you like it as a place to actually live.

If you can afford this neighborhood, it's as ideal as it gets. Right in the center of everything, no more than 15 minutes walk to other areas you would want to visit, close to the metro, beautiful buildings and plenty of food and cafes around. But you will pay more to live here and probably end up with a smaller apartment than other parts of the city.
By Erin W. for La Gran Via area. Where to live
Definitely the hip/cool neighborhood and the place to be for great cafes, diverse food and all kinds of nightlife. But it can be noisy at night, especially on the weekends. Next time I would probably live in one of the areas a few minutes away from Ruzafa so that I could still take advantage of everything but enjoy a little more peace and quiet.
By Royce D. for Ruzafa area. Where to live
I lived here for 3 months and loved it. It's a quiet, working class neighborhood and there isn't a ton of things to do in the area. However, it's only a 5 minute walk from Turia Park and the City of Arts and Sciences, a 10 minute walk to Ruzafa and 30 minutes to the heart of the old city. There are also buses that go straight into the center in less than 10 minutes. You can spend less on an apartment here as well.
By Cesar C. for Monteolivete area. Where to live
Some things to ask about when looking for an apartment: street/neighbor noise levels, if there is AC/heater, insulation (some places stay very cold all the time), average electricity cost per month, closest metro station, amount of natural light and whether or not the electricity goes out. Many apartments have old wiring and as a result, you can't turn on more than 2 things in the apartment at the same time without the fuse blowing out.

Kana Mahkan in Ruzafa is a great casual spot to grab a drink in the evening and enjoy the owners' fresh, delicious and inexpensive Syrian tapas that they create each evening. Usually a laid-back crowd and a relatively easy place to chat with strangers and make new friends.
By Sadiq S. Food and drink
No shortage of bars, cafes and restaurants in the atmospheric lanes that make up this lively part of the city. If you want to be in the middle of the action, it's a great area to live in. Just keep in mind that it can be a bit loud with all of the activity and nightlife and you can definitely find cheaper apartments in areas that are not too far away.
By Justin H. for El Carmen area. Where to live
I spent many days working in this cafe during my stay in Valencia and enjoyed the environment. There is a large table at the back that can accommodate 8 people. Early afternoon was busy, but there seemed to be enough space. There's also an open courtyard at the back. Nice and healthy selection of set menu options for 10 euro. Friendly owner. Overall great place to get some work done.

Monteolivete is a very quiet but is less than 30 minutes walk to almost anywhere you need to go in the city. If you want to be away from the more crowded city center, but still in a convenient location, this is a great option.
By Isaac H. Where to live
Keep in mind that most restaurants (even small ones) don't open until 8pm since eating times are very late. Finding dinner before that is a challenge. Only cafes and touristy restaurants are generally open all day.

The mainly residential neighborhood of El Cabanyal-El Canyamelar backs onto a string of sandy beaches with a palm-lined shorefront promenade. Nearby streets draw summer crowds with souvenir stores, cafes, casual eateries, and late-night bars and clubs. Inland are the Mercat Cabanyal food market and the Museu de lโ€™Arrรฒs de Valรจncia, focusing on the cityโ€™s rice production history.
By Matteo D. for El Cabanyal area. Where to live
Super friendly cafe with a nice big table in the back that is specifically for people working online. Great menu, healthy food, strong wifi and overall great atmosphere for getting work done.
