    Hi - could anyone advise the best way to store luggage in Madrid for 3 or 4 weeks? I'm planning to go on the Camino in September and would like to leave my luggage in Madrid during the period. The consignas at the airport or trains station do not seem to be a good choice for storage over 5 or 6 days. Tips would be welcomed. Thanks.

    The Madrid train station is an option, but a very expensive one. I left a smallish box there for 10 days back in 2013 and it cost me something like 30-40 Euros. It transpires that I misunderstood the daily rate to be a total cost for an unlimited time...

    Oh, @Karl Oz, that is truly horrible. I'm amazed it did not put you off Madrid for life.

    @RichardW I've left a small suitcase (carry-on size) at the hotel to which I was returning. If you are staying someone before or after you walk you could send an email and ask.

    Better still, send it to Ivar here, and help keep the forum alive.

    Not really, I should have read the fine print. I also agree the hotel solution is worth a try, but in my case I was staying in a tiny 1-star pension. Not a whole lot of storage space was apparent.
