I used this hostel two years ago when travelling with students, the location was so perfect I have just returned for another amazing weekend in this fabulous city. The rooms are basic but serve their purpose as somewhere to sleep. The staff are all very friendly and helpful - excellent customer service! The breakfast is perfect to set you up... More

We had visited this hostal a few years ago, and we came back because we had enjoyed the central location. It is perfect to spend a few days here to explore Madrid, easy to walk to most places. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was good, and we liked the quirky breakfast room. The room itself was... More

Nice, friendly and clean hotel in a great central location; we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Reception staff were friendly enough, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Great little bathroom and comfortable beds. Great for its price, and perfect for a few days to explore Madrid.

Persal was an excellent choice for a recent four day trip to Madrid. I have stayed there before, so I knew I was going somewhere special, and wasn’t disappointed. Perfect location in the heart of old city and authentic night life, clean and quiet room, friendly and helpful staff from front office to room service (they gave me the front... More

Our stay was one of two halves - we booked in advance to stay on Thursday night and then returned without a booking on Saturday and Sunday night, having spent Friday night in Toledo. Reception is open 24 hours a day so it didn't matter that our flight arrived late on Thursday night. We were given a warm welcome and... More

The journey from the airport to sol was straightforward and very cheap on the metro. We arrived at the hotel at 11:44 and check in does not start until 1pm. The staff were friendly enough and said they may be able to find a room quicker but we could leave our bags while we waited. We decided to explore El... More

Dear Guest, It is clear that none of the three persons from our staff that tried to assist you could fulfill your requirements as you expected, so we must apologize for that. Thank you for sharing your opinion and, as I myself told you the morning you left Hostal Persal, please count on us for a next stay so we... More

We stayed at Hotel Persal from 1-4 November 2015. We had a room on the 4th floor (D). Very quiet and everything we need. A bed, a nice shower, fresh air from outside. Breakfast in the library, we choose the long table. Feels like home but with great service. A lot of restaurants in the neighbourhood and 5 minutes from... More

We stayed at Hostal Persal from 11 October for four nights bed and breakfast. There were 5 of us ranging in ages from 66 to 11 years old. We really couldn't fault it in any way. The staff are friendly and helpful, breakfast has everything you need, rooms are clean and comfortable. Everything was perfect, especially the location.

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.
