We slept three nights in Persal. Personnel was very friendly and service was good. Breakfast was very decent for the price. Room was nice and clean but we had our room facing to the plaza in the first floor so there was noise coming from street during the night when people got back from bar. Overall experience was good and... More

The Hostal Persal is directly in the heart of bustling Madrid. Easy access to all the major places of interest and bars, eateries are right on the door step. Very nice and helpful staff and good rooms. The dining room for breakfast doubles up in the day as a lovely bar and library. The safety deposit boxes are in the... More

I was searching something in the middle of the city to be closer to the most important sites and monuments. After some hours of searching I hit this hotel/hostal (is more like a pension than an hotel), but I liked very much. It is very comfortable, the double windows prevent from getting the noise from the street, and the personal... More

This is a medium range place just off the Sol area of Madrid, close to trains, the theatres, a brief 10 min walk to the Prado art gallery. Rooms are small and quiet but equipped with their own shower and toilet. Mine opened up to a central courtyard. The desk staff very helpful and the restaurant provided a very generous... More

This hotel has a great location and is great value for money. It is really close to major attractions in Madrid and there are lots of restaurants nearby. The breakfast area is great and all the staff were really helpful and efficient. It was very clean (rooms maybe in need of decoration update) but can't complain at that price. Fantastic... More

This hotel is excellent value for money. The location is perfect for walking to many/most tourist sites, and is also two doors down from Café Central, the jazz bar!! Could not be better. The public areas on the ground floor are modern, attractive and well maintained. The staff were courteous, helpful, understood my basic Spanish and supplemented with English where... More

It's been a month since our stay at the friendly Persal which I highly recommend. Staff was always pleasant, we felt safe, breakfast was more than substantial, and our room facing Plaza Angel was soundproofed. As others have mentioned, its location to museums, plazas, and markets is ideal. We especially appreciated the AC during the heat wave. Two years ago... More

It was our first stay in Hostal Persal and in Madrid, and we're lucky to stay in a really good location. It's just a 200-300 meter walk from Plaza Mayor, which is where the tourist information center is and where most tours start. Not a lot of locals come here and it's very tourist-y, but it's a good way to... More

This is my second stay at the Hostal Persal, this time for a week in July 2015. It is a friendly, spotlessly clean, safe and quiet hotel in the centre of Madrid. I recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the city and I'll definitely continue to use it.

This is the 4th time I have stayed here, and I couldn't recommend any other place. The people are so incredibly, genuinely nice and helpful. The rooms are super clean and quiet and the location is the best place you could be in Madrid. I have stayed here with friends, family and by myself, and it's always estupendo!

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.
