Really, its expensive but not that
expensive compared to American rates, but it's a 150% premium on regular rates (110 euros/night, so ~$155) because of Carnival. I was laughed at when I asked for 2 nights. It's a down-pour here so it looks like I could be stuck here for a while, so in that respect I guess I'm getting my money's worth. I hope I have the same luck as I did in Seville & it is nice tomorrow.
Also, it turns out that the carnival (not carnivale, as I'd previously spelled it) started yesterday, so this is the first weekend... which apparently is the better one. Really hoping for some improvement in the weather.
