We spent three nights, it is very friendly, yoU feel like at home, the employees are very friendly, it's location is very nice, 1 minute to Plaza Major (through the stairs), 3 minutes from La Latina metro station (line 5 green). We ordered a room without breakfast, but there are a supermarket nearby and the Mercado San Miguel is 2... More

I live in Spain but not in Madrid so when my friends or family visit me and want to see Madrid I think this is a perfect Hostel. The hotel location is really good, surrounded with restaurants and 1 mins away from Mercado San Miguel and Plaza Mayor, 5 mins from the famous Churros shop San Gines , 7 mins... More

Located in the center next to the Plaza Mayor. Cozy, clean, and comfortable room with balcony overlooking a charming and animated plaza. Perfect place with a very affordable price. With the window and the balcony door closed it was so quiet that we overslept the next morning. Will certainly return here again and will recommend!

Located in the very center of Madrid, right behind Plaza Mayor and in walking distance to the main touristic spots of the city, it is the perfect spot for a young couple to spend a romantic weekend in Madrid.

I stayed here for 4 nights in November with a friend and it is a beautiful little hotel. I had asked for room 206 before I arrived as I had read good reviews..and I was not disappointed. Whilst the room is small, it is perfectly appointed with everything you could require and the sheltered balcony overlooking the gorgeous street is... More

We stayed here in 2004 and loved the convenience, just off Plaza Mayor and a block to the Mercado San Miguel. We returned in 2013 and loved it all over again. The rooms are small and don't have all the conveniences of typical American hotels (dresser, e.g.) but it's well cared for by a delightful staff, especially Fernando, who was... More

Cute cozy room near plaza mayor. Great location for sightseeing by foot. Across from Belgian bar and flamingo venue. Hotel delivers cool cervaza to my room for little more than I'd pay in a shop which I drink while people watching and journaling from my balcony!

The hotel was a very nice value for the location; you can be in the center of Plaza Mayor in 2 minutes.. It was hard to find though, especially since we had a car. We drove past it twice before figuring it out. It does not have a formal entrance, the hotel sign was not obvious for us, and the... More

We stayed at Hostal La Macarena for 2 nights in october 2013. The rooms are very small but very clean. The bathroom is also very clean. Unfortunately we had a room without balcony - so if you can choose, take a room with view to the street and balcony, although it is noisier. The staff was very friendly and you... More
