Has everything could want for a budget hotel Very friendly and helpful staff. Unbeatable location in what must be the liveliest street in the world. That is a problem though. Try to get the quietest room you can as the blaring noise on this street is 24/7. Having said that we had a little balcony overlooking the awesome street that... More

This is a budget hotel and that is what you get. The location is perfect, right in the centre of the beating heart of Madrid on Calle Grande Villa surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants. There are two metro stations just a short distance away, lots of buses pass by and the nearest local overground train station is just... More

This is a exceptionally clean hotel, my compliments to whoever does the cleaning. I have not once heard any noise by cleaners when trying to sleep, which is ALWAYS disturbing in hotels, Madrid and elsewhere. Plumbing is very noisy and old. I was let to see 7 different rooms when I came, so I chose the one I have had... More

Traveling to Madrid on business, I found this small inexpensive hotel right in the heart of town. It's an old hotel, but offers all I need. A clean room with comfortable bed and a hot shower. It's located on Calle Gran Via, a street bursting with energy. Restaurants, theater, shops. I only had to walk a block to the nearest... More

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
