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

My boyfriend and I stayed here for about a week in August of 2013, and we have nothing but glowing reviews to give this hostal and its staff. Considering how cheap this place is, we had an excellent room. We stayed in room 204 and while it was small, it suited our needs just fine. It had a really cute... More

Just spent a few days in Madrid and had a great time, we stayed in La Macarena Hostal. Firstly on the plus side what a great location , it's got everything you need on the doorstep just a flight of steps away from Calle Mayor, and it's clean and cheap. On the downside it's very noisy if your at the... More

My friend and I stayed at Hostal La Macarena for five nights. The location of the hotel is great- close to Plaza Mayor and the Renfe. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted/needed to go. The hotel itself was a little less than great. The rooms were old and run down. The ceiling fans in both rooms we stayed... More
