Location - 3 mins walk from Alonso Martinez Metro. Walk down from there through the square, 2nd left and go along till just after Calle de Justiniano, small doorway on left of street, tiny sign, I walked right past it first time. Obviously businesses change but at the time of visiting, it was opposite the Lock-In bar/Idioteque club. Ring buzzer. It's on 3rd floor (turn right from stairs).
Small hotel taking up part of one floor, only a few rooms, shared bathrooms but there are two both with toilet/basin/shower/bath. Shared kitchen with washing machine, sink, kettle, microwave, fridge. Everything very clean.
The owner keeps a low profile but each day when I returned from an outing I found my room with fresh towels and freshly made beds. I had a single room by the way which had two single beds in. Had tiny balcony with wooden shutters/new upvc double glazed doors/inner wooden doors so outside noise kept to a minimum and I slept well each night. Not a noisy area in my experience anyway.
A minor niggle but not too important to me - couldn't get wireless internet but maybe have to ask owner for password?
All-in-all a very pleasant stay (6 nights), no complaints and would recommend.
