Had the pleasure of a short break before we flew down to Malaga, booked this hotel as it seemed close to the city centre, which it is, a pleasant quaint quiet hostel, with excellent staff who all speak fluent English, helpful and generous in their advice and help. The hotel it must be said is a little dated in decor... More

Had a 3 night stay here. Staff was very helpful. Hotel was clean and centrally located to the biggest draws in Madrid. Several cafes nearby with terrific eats. Plenty of souvenir shops and a easy 5 minute walk to Plaza Mayor.

The hiatal Persal is more like a hotel, with private rooms, and amenities of a mid star hotel, Location is fabulous- a short walk fro plaza de Sol, and walking distance to many attractions. Rooms are on the small side, but and if you planning on staying on your room it may be an issue. There are numerous restaurants and... More

The breakfast was very good-cheese, ham, bread rolls, croissants, jam , cereals and coffee, tea , juice... More

Our room (202) offered up... More

The only Hotel that can come close to this location is the ME Victoria which charges US$300 plus a night. The Hostal Persal is modern, yet unpretentious. Very European which only enhances the experience!! You walk EVERYWHERE!!! No metros, no taxis. All main attractions = walking distance. Simple rooms, small bathroom, spotless clean and a very friendly staff!! We stay... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
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.
