For the price that we paid (€143 for three nights) this hotel was definitely good value. The location is great, few minutes away from Gran Via and close to Callao and Gran Via metro stations. Its quite basic but clean and sufficient for our needs (although an extra pillow would have been nice!). Only problem with this hotel is that... More

A very nice small hotel with clean and large rooms. The staff was really helpful and kind. There was also a basic but good breakfast. The metro station was very close, at a five minute walking distance. I will definitely go back there in case I visit Madrid again.

PROS Boutique-hotel like designed rooms, great choice of colors and decoration. Great location in the heart of Madrid, considering this the rooms are surprisingly spacious. The same hotel will cost you double the price in Paris, Amsterdam or Barcelona. Very clean, confortable beds. CONS No minibar or nonstop nearby shop. The staff can only be reached by phone after 20:00.... More

Check-In/Check-Out: No prolems, despite of unsufficient English knowledge of receptionist and breakfast was only offered upon request. But too late for me (8.30) as I Ieft at 6.30 the next day. Positive: Check out was possible without receptionist, as nobody is on site from 10.00pm to 8.00am. The Credit Card has simply been debited afterwards. Cleanliness: Bedroom, bath, bedclothes, towels... More

One of my friends found this hotel, and it's a perfect place to hang your hat while exploring Madrid. It's no frills, but very clean and comfortable and you certainly can't beat the price. I had a single room with a lovely little balcony which was nice. The Metro stop is about 3 blocks away, and there's a small grocery... More

A great little find. Extremely cheap but with great clean rooms and walking distance to all of the gay bars. The staff was nice and helpful with maps and other info readily at hand. If you are traveling as a couple make sure to ask for 'matrimonial' bed when booking otherwise you will get two twins pushed together.

Just returned from staying at the antigua posada. The rooms were very, very clean and just what a tourist needs as a base for discovering madrid. Its 5 minutes walk from the cellao metro and gran via. The breakfast was a bargain at 4 euros and consisted of cereal, croissants, toast, teacakes, a selection of pastries, tea/coffee and orange juice.... More

I booked this hotel for me and my boyfriend to celebrate my high school graduation, July 2011. The price was very good, we booked it for 5 nights. The location is a little bit "behind" Gran Via, but still 5 min walk to it, which is awesome as Gran Via is THE location for hanging out! The closet Metro stop... More

The good things about this hostel are definitely the location (very central and close to Gran Via) as well as the relatively cheap room rates. However, the rest is rather disappointing. Upon arrival in our room, the shower as well as bathroom light was broken. It was repaired pretty quickly so that was ok. In general, our room was very... More

Has a nice quality/price relationship. Nice room, although was not very big and the closet was minimum. 5min walk to the subway station. The breakfast wasn’t the best ever, had the indispensable. Nearby you find local bars, stores and nightlife. It's a good place to stay for a couple of days.

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
