One-star Hotels in Andalucia
In Andalucia, the hotel star-rating system is overseen by the Consejeria de Turismo (actually Consejería de Turismo, Regeneración, Justicia y Administración Local) of the Junta de Andalucia (regional government's Ministry of Tourism and Sport). A new hotel star rating system was published in May 2020 (Decree 13/2020 and 14/2021), long overdue since it had remained largely unchanged since 1984.
The 'new' or 18th May 2020 leglislation retains the one to five stars system however for hotels and aparthotels it is based on a points system from the assesment of 301 different and wide ranging criteria, rather than a list mandatory requirements for each star rating.A 1-star hotel needs 180 points up to a five-star hotel needing 650 points. There is a five year transition period in which all the hotels, aparthotels, hostals, pensions will need to carry out an assesment under the new criteria and apply for their stars under the 2020 system. The law also creates a new category 'alberges' (hostels) which can offer beds rather than rooms. Read more about Andalucia Hotels Star Rating
