didn't like it at all ...even for budget trips it doesn't work cause the price is high for nothing. Located few steps from Atocha and it's all privilege. Rooms have very thin walls and u can't even speak without feeling that smb can hear you.

We stayed here for three nights, in a double room. The hotel is very close to the prado and to go to the city centre you can go also on foot, because it's very close. The room is quite little and a little bit noisy, but if you don't have high pretences is perfect. Everything is very clean, the personal... More

I stayed there 1 night. Clearly, the room was very small (around 6m²), no window, TV not working, and noisy at night sometimes. The location is quite good, close to museums, and Atocha metro and train station. That is a real good point. So, to sum up, if you don't care really where you sleep, this is a good budget... More

It's a nice enough little crash-pad, a bolt-hole in a good location for the Prado, the Thyssen and the Reina Sofia (within 5-10 minutes walk of each, maybe 20 minutes from the Plaza Mayor). There are lots of nice little eateries nearby, not the tourist fare but actually inhabited by locals. You don't come here if you're going to spend... More

Have stayed at Parajas on 3 occasions during the last year and find it consistently good. The location is excellent - between museums and Plaza Mayor, near Atocha and Metro station with numerous restaurants and bars nearby . The bedrooms and baths are small, clean, and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room rate is appropriate and remarkable... More

Booked over the 'Net and paid 27 euros as advertised. Would have taken some of those reviewed by the guide books, but were all taken up. As mentioned, it's clean as are the shared toilets and WC. Staff are friendly, but no English spoken. Kind of small compared to other hostals I went to later. Bit of a walk to... More

Had a singleroom without window, more like a closet. They then took the payment twice of my creditcard, and refused to book it back. When I was in Madrid again and offered to come around to settle things they did not reply, not even after five urgent emails. Do not give these people your creditcard information!!!

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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 neighborhood, 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.
