Hi stacey! Welcome to the Spain-loving group!
After doing a search of the message board, it seems no on has yet posted a review on Hostal Residencia Besaya
. Hopefully SOMEONE lurking out there now has and will offer his/her personal review. Does it HAVE to be Hostal Residencia Besaya? If so, will you return here to this/your thread later and giving us its FIRST critique? All future travelers will appreciate it.
Oh, you asked in your email to me about hearing of "lockouts" at some hostels. I think you were hearing about youth-hostels (called "albergue juveniles" in Spanish) and not hostels (called "hostales" in Spanish). In the rest of the non-Spanish-speaking world, a "hostel" is an abbreviated term for Youth-Hostels. But in Spain and Latin America a "hostel" is a "hostal". This is a common mistake made by those who aren't familiar with these countries.
You couldn't find the MadridMan\'s Madrid Apartments
page? There are about 10-12 apartments and apartment-finder services listed there. Only one (that I can recall) has been reviewed here on the message board.
You might try the SEARCH link above/right with MADRID APARTMENT as your keywords. Hopefully that'll yield something. Good luck!!
for Barcelona information, Transportation, Lodging, & much MUCH more!
