The hotel is very nicely located, very close to the major attractions of Madrid, on the street with lots of restaurants. On the first floor of the hotel is a restaurant. Rooms are upstairs and all the noise comes from the restaurant and bar which is usually full with people in the evening. Rooms are very small. Even family room... More

We recently stayed at this lovely hotel for 5 nights. Rooms are clean, modern and decorated in a funky style. We had the benefit of staying in a top floor room, which had a charming sloped wood ceiling and interestingly, a bathtub in the middle of the room. Later we moved to a room on a lower floor which was... More

Could not ask for a better location, this boutique hotel is modern and right in the heart of Madrid, just steps away from a host of Tapas bars and a couple of minutes from the main square and shopping centre. The hotel has it's own bar & restaurant which is beautiful & all the staff were lovely and accommodating. Our... More

We stayed for 5 nights in the peak of the tourist season at the end of July. We have two children under 4 years old. The room was clean, modern and large for a central Madrid hotel.

This central hotel is a quiet gem. While within a traditional courtyard, it is fully modernised. Reception staff spoke English and were proactively helpful. My room was well equipped and modern (not to my taste, but only because you can have too much black and silver). But perfectly clean and in new condition. Wifi worked throughout the hotel. The bar...

This was the first hotel we stayed at on our family trip to Spain. Amazing location, we could walk to everything. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. We could not have stayed at a better place. The hotel was immaculate and the rooms were very clean, spacious and modern. We loved it and will definitely stay here again!

I just stayed here for a few nights with my husband and children. The hotel is well situated in La Latina in the middle of bars and restaurants. It has a cool-looking restaurant downstairs and the staff was very friendly. It is a short walk from main sights, Puerta del Sol and shops.

Staying in La Latina

Neighborhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighborhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
