Spanish Hotels/Smoking Policies

I’m in the process of booking hotels in Granada, Seville and Madrid online. Is it safe to assume that the larger hotels will be either non-smoking or have non-smoking rooms? The websites don't always make this clear. Thanks.

by law, a hotel can decide whether it has smoking/non-smoking rooms, or just some smoking-rooms and the rest non-smoking.

However, most of the hotels in spain enforce a strict non-smoking policy in all their rooms. It is very hard to find a smoking-allowed hotel in spain .

On http://www.booking.com/ you can choose for non smoking rooms.

When it says non smoking throughout then that is what it means.

When booking via the site you can request a non smoking room.

As pointed out above the law presently allows hotels to have a certain amount of rooms dedicated for smokers. The law is complicated so I will not go into it here.

My advice is try and find small hotels if you want totally non-smoking facilities. The way the law is written it is more than likely they cannot cater for smokers.
