We had a room with a balcony overlooking the Plaza which I enjoyed immensely. The room is soundproof from any outside noise with a very thick window\door to keep out the plaza sounds. The bathroom was small but clean. The staff was always pleasant and helpful. Location is unbeatable within walking distance of the Prado, the main train station, Plaza... More

You really can't ask for a better location. The Hostal is located at Plaza de Angel around the corner from Plaza Santa Ana. The area is very nice and you can enjoy sitting outdoors at one of the many cafes. Having said that, Hostal Persal is just about as centric as you are going to get in Madrid and you... More

This place is located on Plaza de Angel. Close to Plaza Santa Ana, in the middle of Madrid. You will be close to almost anything. A small walk from the metro stations of Anton Martin or Plaza Puerta del Sol this is really in the thick of things. A little old and in some need of updating this is still... More

The hostal is in a great location within easy walking distance of the Sol metro and museums. Simple clean accommodation and friendly helpful staff. Rooms at the back of the hostal don't have a view but are quieter. Prices are very reasonable for a capital city. The air conditioning is good.

Located on a lively plaza, lots of restaurants nearby, easy walk to museums, Retiro park, Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol and many other attractions. Clean room, nice bed and towels. Double windows block noise from plaza when (or if!) you want to sleep. Friendly, helpful staff. Next time we visit this fabulous city, we will definitely stay at Hostal Persal!

We really enjoyed this hotel. The location could not have been better. The entrance to the hotel is in the middle of a pedestrian plaza with all types of stores and restaurants right outside the door. The Plaza del Sol is just down the street and everything we wanted to see in Madrid was within walking distance. And there is... More

This hotel was in a wonderful location for walking to all sights in Madrid and the Gran Via. Plaza on the street directly in front of hotel had everything: markets for fresh fruit and produce, restaurants, wine bars, and outside eateries. Staff was friendly. Rooms spacious, smaller bathrooms, and balcony. Noise level from street can get loud at bedtime but... More
