Subject: Re: Paradores of Spain

We have stayed in many Paradores all over Spain, we have been always very happy with them. They have several kind of promotions. Check in their website to see if some of them might fit your plans.The five nights carnet is very good. Also in Spain Bancotel, , is a system that, although I have to try it yet, offers good possibilities for big savings. We have found that the star system in Spain works very well, most of the time a four stars hotel or Parador is excellent and going down some two stars can be very good too. My experience with hostales is limited but the only one I ever tried was excellent, Hostal Santo Tome in Toledo. Good luck with the Euro most of us are in the same boat... Graziella, Miami Beach.
