When we entered the lobby of the hostal we were very impressed. It's clean and quirky. The reception team are friendly and happy to answer all questions. Going into our bedroom was less pleasing! We had a twin as was travelling with a friend. The basic nature of the room was ok and it was clean, as was the bathroom.... More

This hostal is perfect if you are on a tight budget, very clean, comfortable excellent location for all of Madrid's sights, we had a fantastic time, you must go to the tapas market, like a Spanish Covent Garden! Loved it! The staff were faultless, very helpful. We had a room at the front which was noisy but it was great... More

We stayed in the Hostal Persal based on the recommendation of a friend. The location was excellent and the hotel was clean, neat with a very helpful and friendly staff. If you are looking for a wonderful location to all "attractions" you do not need to look further. The included breakfast was perfect, but nothing fancy. Additionally, the wifi was... More

Our sixth visit which must sum up our opinion of the Persal. Friendly staff, unbeatable central location, extremely clean. Has some lovely quirky touches, especially in reception and the breakfast room. Free wifi with a decent signal. You can't go wrong by staying here.

This is an interesting hostal. It isn't particularly cheap given the rooms are so very basic. But it does the job and the location simply could not be better. I stayed for a weekend, I had to transit through Madrid so decided to stop. It was three trains and a good walk to get to the Persal but easily enough... More

The staff was superresponsive wether we had questions abort ordering taxis or to lend a iron. They fixed everything even if things were out of their normal serviceframe and they also took responsible to follow up so you get the right taxi and talked to the driver to get you to the right place. When entering the room it was... More

It's all about location. I would certainly stay here again, as I think that this little hostal is in a great location, a 5 minute stroll from Sol. It is on a pedestrianised street so no traffic noise. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, but the double glazing was very efficient so we were not bothered by noise... More

I have traveled a lot in Europe. This "hostal" like hotel, actually has functioning wifi that is free on all floors, a huge score. I traveled with my boyfriend and we got a private room that was similar to a hotel room for a amazing price. I highly recommend this for couples and young travelers because the location is amazing!!!... More

We stayed at Hostal Persal at the beginning of July and we loved how easy it was for us for to move around Madrid with the Hostal as a starting point. We stayed in a room for four people, which consisted of a double room and a separate living-room-like room with two twin beds and a sofa. My family found... More

Pleasantly surprised with the location , walking distance to restaurants, bars, cafes and Museo de Prado. Decorated in old world style, although rooms are small, the convenient location is well worth it for travelers who want to experience what Madrid has to offer. Includes breakfast and free wifi.
