Excellent for a budget weekend away. Location cannot be beaten. Rooms were clean and comfortable and all staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were nothing to write home about, but this only forced us to investigate local cafes which were reasonably priced. Our family would...More

I expected, is hostel instead hotel. Room are small with portable room heater, and not really work. No heater at bathroom and found my bathroom are colled.
READ THE REVIEWS PEOPLE......this is NOT a hotel but a hostal

We booked this as a group and the main criteria was the location. For that, and the price we paid i have went for the 4 star rating. If it was anywhere else only then we are probably going between a 2 and 3 star...More
I stayed in 3 other hotels in Madrid over the course of 2 weeks and by far, this was the best value and most convenient location of all of them. Madrid is a very large city and this hotel is in the center of it...More
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.
We had no hair dryer in an ensuite room with the view of the square. Taxi is more convenient, but we took the metro and it was quite easy, plus the hostal is right on the square, close to the metro station.
