This is a exceptionally clean hotel, my compliments to whoever does the cleaning. I have not once heard any noise by cleaners when trying to sleep, which is ALWAYS disturbing in hotels, Madrid and elsewhere. Plumbing is very noisy and old. I was let to see 7 different rooms when I came, so I chose the one I have had... More

Traveling to Madrid on business, I found this small inexpensive hotel right in the heart of town. It's an old hotel, but offers all I need. A clean room with comfortable bed and a hot shower. It's located on Calle Gran Via, a street bursting with energy. Restaurants, theater, shops. I only had to walk a block to the nearest... More

This hostal is placed very handy right in the city center. Easy to access both historical places, shopping areas and Madrids nightlife. That is pretty much whats good with it. The rooms are small and simple and the so called WIFI that they promise in their adds is suppose to work in some rooms. However I got a room were... More

There is not a bad word to be said about this hostel. My stay was for a duration of 28 days, longer than most and throughout this I do not have bad word to say. First and foremost the location is spectacular. Situationes directly in the middle of Gran Via it really does ooze the vibe that the majority of... More

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.
