Review Text

  • By Maria on 6 June 2016

    Not massively impressed, however, I will start with the positives:It's small so could easily fit in your pocketIt has a separate map so if going out for an evening you don't have to lug a book with youShort trips to easily accessible Toledo and Segovia are includedA bit of history is includedLong sections on sightsDownsides:The map is flimsy and feels like it will last 5 minsNone of the recommended places (e.g. restaurants etc) are marked on the map, nor are map references given so realistically to find them (unless you're prepared to scour the map for the right street name) is by going on the internet. If you have to find a place by looking on the internet, it makes a guide book kind of defunct.The "free ebook" requires you to download a specific app, why not just have it available as a free kindle download when you buy?The hotel and restaurant suggestions are far too short.All in all, I would have forsaken it's small size and gone for 50 more pages as the recommendations section particularly short (the hotel section is only 5 small pages, 1.5 of them for places outside Madrid.) I don't like to be ruled by a guidebook anyway but it seems a bit pointless if the guidebook doesn't actually give you guidance.
