Star rating hotels in Spain and the Spanish islands. What can you expect ?
First, there is no national classification system. What means that each region has its own system.
So the classification can be  else in Orihuela Costa than in Sevilla .
Luckily the differences between the regions are minimal.

But there are minimal safety requirements on fire safety, sound proofing  or space.
The prices of the services must be displayed at the reception and the rooms.
Also the price list for the extra services. for instance , the telephone charge, the laundry , the  parking, the fitness, the breakfast….
