Format: Paperback
I am amused by some of the comments made knocking this Lonely Planet Spain publication. Comments such as those indicating that their hotel was not listed show ignorance of the way I think this book is designed and intended. Spain is a large, historic and diverse country and visitors are there for equally diverse reasons. If one can only take one reference publication to cover the country, this is the book to take. I travel to small towns as well as larger metropolitan areas and I am amazed at the coverage provided in the text. Do I stay at their recommended hotels all the time? No, but I always check them out on-line before leaving home and some of them are the best I can find. Do I end up in places that do not appear in other guides? All the time and this book has never let me down.

I find the book to to be well written and researched as is the Lonely Planet Italy by the same author. (For a really lame publication I'll refer you to Lonely Planet Switzerland!)

If you are a Tourist visiting only large cities and magnet tourist spots, then other publications may have added value for you, but if you are a Traveler seeking out of the way venues in addition to the normal sights, then this is an excellent reference! . . . ignore the other whining commentators.

While the maps for Madrid are more or less useless, Barcelona maps were easy to use, and information on both cities was generous. Unfortunately does not cater as much to budget travellers as it used to. Information on Valencia was a little sparse. It's a good security blanket though on sights to see and stuff like that. Kinda misses out on all the really good grub holes in Valencia though. How is Padi's not mentioned?

We spent the last 22 days backpacking all over spain and we found this book very helpful.. The maps were very accurate and were plentiful.. (unlike frommers portugal guide which only has a few maps in the entire book). The description of the smaller cities, even some small villages were included and helpful.. It is true about some opening and closing times and the admission rate was different than the book, but those change all the time.. I expected to pay a bit extra for admission and in general, most sites open around the same time during the day anyway..
We stayed at several hostels and found many different travellers from different countries than the states used the same book for their plans..
We got a good use out of this book and would strongly recommend it to those who are planning a trip to Spain to see just more than Madrid and Barcelona and Sevilla.. Frankly, a tourist information booth at major cities in general are the way to go for updated information on restaurants and events....
The only thing I would have a different opinion on is some of the hotel author's selections which I found if fair, maybe not worthy of the title...

Lonely Planet provides a great complement to my reliance on Rick Steves. Between the two I am able to map out wonderful trips, with LP providing the lower end of the cost scale way to go about traveling. Cleanly laid out, written in a way to convey information rather than overawe the reader, their guides are invaluable, timely, and fun.

I use Lonely Planet and Guide Vert/Green Guide on most of my trips. They complement one another well. Lonely Planet had some good recommendations for hotels in Barcelona; and for all the sites we went to the historical background, opening times, and descriptions were very well done. Spain is a tricky country in terms of opening hours, as many museums close for 2 or so hours in the middle of the day. As we did not have a car, information concerning metro stops, train station locations, etc. were quite useful.

As usual, LP lacks in the maps (they are detailed enough , but the black/white format makes it almost impossible to read); and lack of photos makes it difficult to decide what to see. Whatever happened to the pictures/thousand word thing?

LP is oriented towards the backpacker/middle-means traveler. But even if you are traveling in luxury, this is a more than sufficient guide except for the maps.

as usual, a travel guide filled up with essential information, history background of every place, saving tips, touring ideas... what else to say? Lonely Planet are the best travel guides for far.
