Madrid, San Sebastian & Barcelona - Lodging and Restaurants

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are traveling to Spain in October - this is a trip of a lifetime; literally. We'd like to stay in very nice, some would consider luxury, hotels on this trip. We like small botique hotels in older parts of cities, but value the experience over anything else.

We are also foodies and would appreciate any suggestions on restaurants as well. We don't like the "new" cuisine with foam, etc. We like to eat where the locals eat. We aren't super late-night people and realize that we won't be able to hang with the locals at 10:30 pm...for a number of reasons.

We ahve flights in to Madrid, staying 3 days , driving to San Sebastian and spend some time in the Rioja wine country on the way (4 days total in that area) then fly or train to Barcelona (3 days). 2 days travel (to and from the States, so 10 days total in country).

We were saving Toledo and the South for another trip; we hope and pray, for another trip in the future.

We also would like guide suggestions for the cities, too, to get a flavor of the cities; probably a 1/2 day of a tour in each. We can do the museums on our own, but have had wonderful experiences with guides in other cities.

Any help will be appreciated.
