Clean with aircon and mini cocktail fridge in the room. Couldn't be in a better location. It is 15 mins walking to nearly everywhere and it's dirt cheap. Helpful staff and all types of shops neraby. Ps check noodle bar top of street

I visited with two of my sisters and their husbands. The main purpose for the trip was to visit Madrid. As a result, we did not need an expensive place to stay. The Hostal Hispalense was excellent in location and value. The service was very...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.
