We stayed here for 4 nights and only cost €240. No frills but very clean, nice traditional furnishings, good bed (though may be a bit firm for some people ). Helpful owners who were happy to keep our bags all day before an evening flight. There are no refreshments so bring a travel kettle. There is a bar opposite which... More

Javier and his brother are welcoming and helpful hosts. The hostal is a calm and comfortable place in the middle of a busy part of Madrid. If museums are high on your list of things to do in the city, it is a very good place to stay. (It is also conveniently located if you're coming or going by way... More

My husband and I spent 5 pleasant nights in late October at Hostal Gonzalo. Javier and his brother were kind and helpful hosts. The hostal was a great value for a wonderfully central location. We were able to walk everywhere with major museums, many good restaurants and interesting neighborhoods nearby. Our room with a comfortable bath, faced the back and... More

Based on a hostal recommendation in Rick Steves and reviews here, my wife and I booked for 2 nights at the start and end of a trip to southern Spain. The first night was fine, although noise from other rooms travelled well. The 2nd night, 3 weeks later, was upsetting: We had arranged for a room with twin beds; when... More

You walk in through a door that makes you wonder if you've found the right place, and rise to the 3rd floor in an old elevator "lift" with double doors, and wonder what you've done! Then you open the door to the floor of rooms that is Hostal Gonzalo and into the wonderful care of Javier, his brother and family.... More

I was a bit concerned booking this place because it is a hostal, not a full-service hotel. I'm so glad I did! The rooms (we had 1 room for 3 nights, then changed to another room for 2 nights) were impeccably maintained. One of the few places where we could enjoy open windows, yet it was very quiet when you... More

Our room was a decent size, not large but not tight, and the washroom was bigger than average relative to various places we have stayed in Europe.  Our room faced a non-descript inner space, not the street, so was fairly quiet, and the bed and pillow were reasonably comfortable. Wifi connection was good. The location was very convenient, many places for food... More

This was our first stop after a long haul flight and our first time in Spain. Everything was perfect. Javier is an amazing host. Take note of his tips for breakfast and tapas bars. Chocolat for breakfast and Quevedo for a real buzz and fabulous tapas served free with your drinks. We had a room at the front and really... More

The hostal is super clean - they changed all my towels each day and tidy up the room, even putting my shoes and slippers in order :) My room was quiet, the furniture basic but comfortable - enough drawers to put my stuff and a lot of hangers in the wardrobe.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
