This was a great value place to stay in the heart of Madrid - on the Gran Via. Had a Superior Double room which was clean tidy & spacious - apart from the shower/bathroom which was in fairness a bit too small for comfort. However...More
The worst and most claustrophobic room i have ever been in. This place is absolutely disgusting, tiny claustrophobic. No breathing space and toilet are outside the room. Location is ok but the room is a nightmare.
Stayed with 3 others in 2 rooms both near to reception. On 5th floor although there is a lift. 1st night very noisy at reception late at night and also noise of the buzzer to get in downstairs is so loud it woke us up...More
The Hostal is in a great location and we walked to Plaza Mayor on our arrival at night and marveled at the Christmas lights, decorations, enjoyed calamari rolls etc - it met our needs and the staff was very helpful during our brief stopover in...More
Very good budget priced Hostel, very clean, fresh bedding & towels every day, BUT we did not realise there is NO lift, reception is on the first floor then you need to climb another floor or two to reach most of the rooms. We made...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.
