dc, only Florencio (the son of the Hostal Lopez family reads this message board. I have my reservations already for one of the weekend nights and I too will return to this thread and tell you my feedback just as dc has. Thanks for sharing, dc!

Saludos, MadridMan

Thanks gang!

I appreciate your replies. Looks like I'll be staying at the Lopez anyway...the Martin is filled up!

Nuria? Wow! There's two of you! I've been corrosponding with the Hostal Lopez with Nuria. I think she speaks great English.

Rgf, hola! I can understand you thinking I'm crazy to have such suit cases. Normally I'd agree. It's just that I'd feel really awkward without the "required" evening gowns on this particular ship.

Generally, I'm a pro at the art of "lightweight". I managed a 26 day remote backpacking trip through the Sierra Nevada Mountains (Calif) with only 1 pair of shorts, 3 shirts, 2 underwear, 4 pair of socks, a pair of hiking boots and water shoes, and a coolweather jacket. Believe me, if I could get away with that on this fancy cruise, I WOULD! LOL

Adios!

Hi!

I'm planning to stay at Hostal Lopez in February but I've heard that they do not have a safety box. Is that a problem?

Also, what's going on in February? Are we going to find the party atmosphere?

uphilldeb - with that kind of packing /survival ability you should give lessons! I always thought I was doing well with one small suitcase plus a carry-on. Ever consider teaching a class in how to REALLY pack light? Have a wonderful trip-
MadridMan - I tried to put the winking smile here - no luck -what am I doing wrong ....

j_rodz1, I don't think most hostels (called "hostales" in Spanish) in Spain have lock boxes although I remember seeing a Rick Steves program recently where the pension in which they stayed in Italy did have a lock box in-room. I wouldn't think this would be a problem, but hopefully you aren't bringing along The Hope Diamond either.

(<--Puna, notice winking smiley. it's a colon ";" and then the right parenthesis. )

Saludos, MadridMan

I do not know of any Hostal with a safe box in Madrid.

I can tell you that there is a Police Station 1 block away from Hostel Lopez, and that in more than 20 years nothing has gone missing in any room.

Best regards

Florencio
