Hotels in Spain are classified with a five-star rating system - with only the super deluxe obtaining five stars.

The average vacation package deal would place you in a three- or four-star hotel - occasionally a two star - all of which should have good facilities, with en-suite private bathroom and air conditioning.

A one-star hotel is less common, as hostels and pensions tend to cater for the budget traveler.
