This hostal perfectly located, just next to Plaza Mayor. Our room was quite spacious and very clean. There were no towels in the room, but the staff promptly made up for this. Nice view from the window. Extremely cheap for what you get (although we might have benefitted of an exceptional bargain price).

Our third visit to this lovely small hotel, from 12th-15th June . . . as ever it is hard to beat at 55 euros per room, per night, with an unrivalled central Madrid location between the main Sol square and the spectacular Plaza Mayor. The rooms are small but spotless, boasting excellent air con. and also very decent HD televisions...

I've never stayed in a hostal before so it took a little getting used to. The single rooms that myself and my son had are small and very basic, and the bathrooms are also very small, but they are very clean and serviced daily. I am really pleased with the location, it is so close to everything we have been...

We stayed 2 weekend nights in this hostal. The location is super convenient and beautiful. Easy to reach from sol metro station and a few steps away from the beautiful plaza mayor. Lots of restaurants and bars at walking distance, but set away from the noisy streets. The room was small, but had all necessary comforts and was extremely clean...

Rooms aren't large, and I understand the difference between a "Hotel" and a "Hostal" has to do with amenities--so no breakfast and minimal freebies in the room. Elevator! It's a great value since our room was spotless and we had a little balcony from which we could watch the comings and goings on the street below and on Plaza Santa...

This is a great location for the visitor to Madrid. 100 yards frin Plaza del Sol, and 50 yards from Plaza Mayor. After 5 days here, we had walked to most of the more interesting things to do in Madrid. Museums, plaza's and even the palace, the largest palace in Europe (2600 rooms) are all within a 15 minute walk....

I definitely recommend this place if you are on a budget and want a good, simple room with really great hosts. It is in an excellent location if you want to be in the tourist center of Madrid, right between Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. The hostal is inexpensive, up to date, and spotless. The rooms have double pane...

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
