Choosing yours among many Spain hotels is, along with the purchase of plane tickets, the most critical decision of your trip.
You should search thoroughly to pick the lodging options that best suit your needs – and your wallet!
A quick note before you start
Before you continue reading, I am fully aware that suggesting a hotel for a friend or a relative is not always easy, not to mention for someone I’ve never met before.
You, as any other traveler, are unique and thus have different expectations and needs. That’s why there are no magic formulas. Some solutions may suit a person while not satisfying another one at all. That’s why this guide is only a list of tips, and does not provide universal choices.
You may be among those travelers that simply use their hotel as a place to sleep at the end of the day. On the contrary, you may believe that the hotels you pick are going to be an important part of your trip.
And then, there is the budget issue. Are you a rather frugal traveler or do you prefer to spend a little bit more on lodging rather than museum tickets or eating?
As you can see, it really depends. What some of you consider a luxury might be a basic and non-negotiable need for others.
Keeping this in mind, take these lodging suggestions as general orientations and decide if they suit your travel philosophy.
