This hotel is the place to be if you are visiting Madrid and intend to walk everywhere, because this property is in the middle of everything. Easy walk to so many attractions. Be warned... there is also a very good and popular restaurant/bar on the ground floor of this hotel, and due to the architecture, ALL rooms will hear the... More

I booked this hotel due to reading good reviews on Tripadvisor. Initially, the hotel is not impressive, it's entrance is very non-assuming with a restaurant /bar on main floor, but once inside my room I was not disappointed, if anything, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly and we received a great welcome upon our arrival and were... More

Really enjoyed the location of this property in Madrid. Walk out the front door and you are on Cava Baja, with all it's tapas bars and restaurants. Only about a 10 minute walk to the Plaza Mayor. Hotel itself was lovely (although I did think I was walking into a restaurant at first, as the reception is a small desk... More

I would give this 3.5 stars if I could. It wasn't bad, but it has a few drawbacks. First the good: Its location is great for seeing the old city, the rooms have been redecorated, the bed was very comfortable, and the counter staff were very nice. Now the bad: the rooms are off of a common area that echoes... More

We stayed here as a special treat for our final honeymoon days in Madrid. The hotel looks average on the outside, but with chic modern/upscale boutique rooms. Ours was spacious with a small balcony overlooking the street. One great thing was that our room was fairly soundproof - despite the restaurant/bar being packed at night, we could barely hear any...

This could be a nice unique hotel if you have the right room. However the room I got is one without window facing outside. The only window (if you call it window) faces inside and only few inches away from balcony, which means you will never open it and will always keep the curtain on. The bathroom is very small....

In La Posada del León de Oro there are rooms facing interior, with good luminosity, proper curtains and fresh air ventilation taken from an open inner courtyard. And there are other rooms facing exterior to the street with a nice balcony overlooking the street. Both have doubled walls and windows with double glass conveniently noise-isolated and nice decorated. Room request... More

In the middle of a tiny lane in Madrid's La Latina area, this hotel is tucked away beyond an assuming entrance - you might even walk right past it. Upon entering, my colleague and I were swiftly checked in and offered a welcome glass of wine. My room was massive and unique - a jacuzzi in the middle, minibar in... More

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.
