Traveling in Spain for Two months, Here are a few hotels I liked:

I have been all over in Spain the last two months. Some hotels I liked better than others. I have been here since April 1, and leave June 29, 2015. I have made most of my reservations on

In Toledo - Stayed at Hotel Carlos V in old town. I really liked this hotel, it was reasonably priced for two people. Price included breakfast. Had air con, wifi, comfortable beds, elevator, phone in room, hot & cold water. Beautiful roof top patio! Very nice staff. $70 Euros.

Cordoba - Hostal Osio - Backpackers. This was a little funkier. Although it has the word Hostal, the rooms are private and have private bathrooms. It was clean, the room had air con and a ceiling fan (didn't work though). It was in a great location, the staff spoke english, free wifi, it had a roof deck (hot up there in June!), common kitchen, washer you could use for a charge. Nice interior patios. They offered coffee and toast for breakfast. It was comfortable enough for a short stay and certainly well priced - $45Euros for 2

Seville - I stayed here 3 times. Best Western Hotel Cervantes - free wifi, good location, easy to get to using public transport and walking distance to center of city. Has a lot of charm. Rooms are small, have air con, pretty hotel, breakfast is $10 euros or included in your rate depending on how you book. There is also a garage for additional $$ if you have a car. I didn't think the staff was very nice.
Hotel Sevilla - Charming hotel, not too far from the Best Western, great location, has elevator, free wifi, beds hard as a rock, it can be noisy at this hotel and the air con didn't work well at all. Very uncomfortable, would not go again when the weather is warm.

Madrid: Best Western Hotel Mayorazgo: Very disappointing stay for the price. Had lots of problems, were there for 4 nights, cost $300 USD for the 4 nights. The last night they gave us a different room which was a huge improvement. I would not go there again, this was my second stay here.
Hostal Continental - Fabulous location right on Gran Via. An older hostal style hotel, super nice staff, rooms basic but clean and comfortable, and quiet in my room! My room had air con, free wifi, elevator, shower, well priced for Madrid. Single $30 euros per night.
Hostal Milan - Around the corner from Hostal Comercio, also good location. This is a newer property, opened in November 14. Very clean, nice staff, lift to the rooms but you have to go up a few stairs to get to lift. Free wifi, no breakfast avail. Rooms can be noisy though as you can hear through the walls or the window the people below in other apartments. I would recommend this as a budget property $65 Euro for 2 nights.

Denia: Hostal Comercio - if you don't speak Spanish, forget it. They were not helpful at all and no one speaks English. I was only there one night. They gave me the worst room they had which was teeny tiny. I would not recommend this at all!

EDO at Ona Ogisaka Gardens - LOVED this place! It is a timeshare property, EDO has a lot of properties in Spain, you can also rent the rooms by the night. I had a one bedroom condo with a living room, kitchen, very nice bathroom, two balconies. The property has a beautiful pool, nice spa and workout facilities. Stayed for a week, wish it had been two!

Salobrena: Hostal Palomares - Excellent property! has 4 floors, lift to the roof top terrace. Super nice family runs it. Rooms are very nice, air con, free wifi, nice bathrooms, the most comfortable bed in Spain! Dual pane windows, my interior room was very quiet. $30 Euro for 1 person. I liked this place so well I stayed a week! Breakfast avail for a small charge. They have a lobby dining area with a bar, they serve coffee and beer during the day if you want.

Valencia Hotel Turia - Great location, huge rooms, staff so-so, free wifi, lift, breakfast avail for a charge, My room had a balcony. Rooms need updating.
AC Hotel - I loved this place! Awesome

"Although it has the word Hostal, the rooms are private and have private bathrooms."

"Hostal" is not the same as "hostel". In Spain, a hostal is a small, sometimes family-run, hotel. A hostel, by contrast, can have private rooms or dormitories and shared baths.
