Cannot fault much about this place. The rooms are a bit basic, but they're pretty darned quiet as they're away from the main drag. The rooms have an en suite, they're kept cool with air conditioning and electric shutters, there is a TV and plenty...More
I booked into Hostal Castilla Puerta del Sol, thinking it would be the nice place described in other reviews, following advice of a friend. What I got was a dank, dark room at the end of a long, dark corridor -- a chamber crowded with...More
Window blinds broken (as closed and not to be opened), dirty duvet, very very noisy, unhelpful service personnel who couldn't care less, especially the cleaning lady. The location is perfect, there is free and functioning wi-fi, and the prices are cheap. Don't expect anything for...More
Stayed here for 3 nights in March, fantastic location, literally 1 minute walk from Sol square, loads of fab tapas bars within 2 minutes walk. Originally booked castilla 2 but they took us across the road to castilla 3 when we arrived, these are newer...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.
