Spanish hotel prices.

iHi only lists hotels offering good value for money; and comparing Spain to France or the UK, this can mean very good value.
   Plenty of good quality small hotels in Spain offer double rooms for less than 60€ a night, notably off-season. And this may well include breakfast.
   Good "midscale" three-star hotels can often be had for between 80 € and 120 € a night; and many upscale or luxury hotels  even offer rooms for little over 100 € a night, depending on season and demand.
    Rates are higher in Madrid, Barcelona, and other tourist hotspots.

Catalonia and Valencia

The two northern provinces - or autonomous communities - of Spain's Mediterranean coast are not quite like the rest of Spain; here, the main language is not Castillian Spanish, but Catalan or the slightly different Valencian. Virtually everyone understands and speaks Spanish too, and the further south you go, the less of the regional languages you will here. But take care when driving, road signs and place names may be in two languages, or in Catalonia, only in Catalan.
   The coastal strip of these two provinces is in general highly developed, with an intensive tourism industry. But here and there, specially where the hills come down to the sea, there are some beautiful unspoilt places to be found. As for the hinterland, generally dry hills and pine forests, most of it is off the tourist trail, except for part of the Spanish Pyrenees.
