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 three beds, badly-mended old linen, and absolutely no daylight. I guess I asked for it,... 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 the price!

We originally made reservations at Castilla II, but they took us across the street to Castilla III. The rooms in Castilla III were much newer and nicer, however, I do not think there is an air conditioner in the room. The room was clean and spacious and the location was EXCELLENT.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
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.
