    I've purchased and relied on several Lonely Planet Guides. Unlike the other guides, the Lonely Planet Guide to Spain was not useful or helpful. Although I travelled to Spain in 2005, the 2005 edition's information concerning prices for lodgings, food, transportation and attractions was already out of date. One wonders when it was last updated. Moreover, the book is bulky and poorly organized, making it difficult to pinpoint information. Finally, information concerning secondary cities and towns is impressionistic at best. The Lonely Planet Guide to Spain was a disappointment, poor value and--most importantly--a poor guide to Spain.

    This volume is so thick and so heavy that when it arrived, I couldn't wait to dig and delve into it for my upcoming trip to Spain. Our accomodation and flight plans already made, I was most interested in details about the Northern provinces we'll be driving around. Lonely Planet Spain does not seem to contain any details that don't have to do with hotels/hostels, restaurants, or public transport, or other practical topics. We were more interested in soaking up the flavors, the ambience, and the culture of the country and its people, its customs and traditions, its arts and its music. Guess it's just as well, as this tome would probably throw our luggage over the airline's weight limits.We'll be returning to and sticking with the good old Blue Book and Insight Guides.

    I travelled in Spain (Madrid, Basque Country, Cantabria, Andalusia) in the summer of 2005 with the fifth edition of this book, and generally found it to be very useful and reasonably up-to-date. As a budget traveller not wanting to make too specific plans in advance, the listings of places to sleep (with phone numbers) in each town or city made it quite easy to find accommodation even during "high-season". (Although use of other sources as well, for example online, is advisable; Spanish towns seem to be full of cheap hotels (hostal or pensión in Spanish) and this book, understandably, lists only a few of them.) The book is also good for finding out about the major sights, attractions and activities, as well as for general orientation when arriving to new places.Also, the background information about Spain and its history and culture in the beginning of the book seems well worth reading, preferably before your journey, to get some sort of basic grasp of the diverse country, in case you didn't know much about it already.Maps are quite small but again this is understandable and doesn't matter too much as you can find better, more detailed maps for free in the tourist offices of most towns.To sum it up, this book has a great deal of useful, tight-packed information which should meet the needs of someone like me who doesn't want to carry several guidebooks in their backpack while travelling across the country.

    I found most of the information in the book confusing to use and not updated information. Never did find any information on the hotel we ended up staying in. I did not get a good feel for the city using the information provided. I was hopeing for more information to make my trip a more affordable vacation. Overall, I got more information off the Internet just searching.

    This was our only reference guide to 6 weeks in Spain. We tried to use it for Hotels and buses and trains and all of the things a traveller would need to know. Instead of useful information, we were assaulted with so many adjectives and adverbs that bordered on stupidity, we almost threw the book away. It does contain some information of value if you can get passed all of the pompous verbiage. We did use the book for some things, but important information could be a great substitution for many adverbs and adjectives.
