Little family run hostal. Nicely located in a great neighborhood near the museums and the Atocha train station which grants you easy access to the airport. The rooms are clean, but a bit small. Can't say much about the owners as we only saw them in the check-in and check-out.

The locations is safe, central and well placed for sights and attractions. Jaen is near the Lope de Vega museum - the same building, and close to two of Madrid's most famous museums, Prado and Sophia, and pretty much in the heart of the tourist area. Its only about a 10 - 15 minute walk between them.The owners are wonderful...

This is a perfectly good pension in a great neighbourhood - Barrio de las Letras. Close to everything important in Madrid. Clean and quiet with all the basics covered. We stayed in room three, which is a at the end of a hallway with a balcony overlooking the street. I would ask for that one again.

The owners are a wonderful couple who speaks very little English but plenty of warmth. They recommended great neighbor restaurant and made sure we are comfortable. I had a single bed in tiny little room with a shared bathroom. The perfectly cheery and clean room had a little balcony that lets in a ton of light (alas, also the noise...

Although far from the best hotel in Madrid, it is perfectly adequate for a stop over in Madrid, mainly because of its cheapness in the middle of the main tourist area.It cost 40 euros per night to stay in the heart of the city, near the Prado and other main attractions. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and there are...

Very central. Just a few minutes walk from the Prado It is very small with only a handful of rooms. The staff were helpful when asked although we didn’t encounter them often. The room and especially the bathroom were very small (the sink is in the room and the toilet and shower are in the bathroom). The room was clean....

5 minutes fro the Plaza Mayor- the large plaza in the old city- so the location is awesome. Lots of restaurants and bars and minimarkets all around it. The room was spotless, great shower, good bed, quiet... even heating in the room. The family owned and run pension is very nice, simple but definitely worth the money. I would definitely...

Everything is great with this place. Clean, very good price, and the owners are wonderful people, very helpful - we were before in another Hostal in the same street (cervantes), but Hostal Jaen is superior and better priced than its competition in the street. It's at a walking distance of the Neptune plaza - walking distance to the metro station,...

This is a great, super economical place to stay when in Madrid. We had two rooms, both were completely functional, very clean, and since we only sleep in our rooms, the fact that they were small was not an issue at all. The owners were extremely accommodating, even with our limited knowledge of Spanish. They made excellent arrangements for our...

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.
