The Hostal La Macarena has a great location across the street from the famous Botin restaurant and in walking distance from the Plaza Mayor. Pros-location and price. The rooms have private bathrooms which are very nice. Flat screen tv and ceiling fan. Cons-no AC or in room mini-fridge. Small rooms but efficient.

Hostal la Macarena is a great family run hostal in the heart of Madrid. Rooms are compact but ideal for a city break - immaculately clean, with a daily maid service. This is a Hostal so don't expect 5 stars - but the staff do everything they can to make the Hostal the best it can be. As mentioned by... More

This Hotel may only be 2 star but it has all the facilities of a 4 star! Perfect location right beside Plaza Mayor in the heart of Madrid. A great starting point to explore all that the city has to offer. The rooms were perfectly adequate for our needs and clean, with a lovely view of the bustling square below.... More

This Hotel was located on a very unique street and many attractions. It is half a block from the San Miguel Mercado where tapas are sold till 2:00am on weekends. Across the street is an archway leading to Plaza Mayor and to the south a short walk to a bubling Latino Barrio. The rooms are small but clean and very... More

This hotel is close to the heart of Madrid, just a few minutes' walk from the Plaza del Sol, Plaza Mayor, and the Royal Palace. Rooms are small but comfortable and functional. Staff were friendly enough but not too much English was spoken. The woman who checked us in was helpful in directing us to a place for breakfast. LOTS... More

Hostal la Macerena is located a few minutes walk from the Plaza Mayor just off Sol square in Madrid. A few minutes walk will take you from the quiet bustling streets of the old town to the busy main streets packed with all the big name stores. The Hostal la Macarena is a delightful old building with winding stairs taking... More

I love this hotel and have stayed here multiple times. It's a smaller hotel, with smaller rooms (but very clean and comfortable) and all of the staff is wonderful and very helpful. It's located on a lively street in the heart of the city (if you don't like the noise, ask for a room on the side street) and the... More

Clean, affordable and right in the heart of Madrid. Walking distance to madrid's most famous tapas markets and streets. We were very happy with our accommodation choice. Will definitely stay again. Highly recommended.

My friends and I spent four days in Madrid and absolutely loved this place. Although the rooms were small, they were very clean, the beds were comfortable, and we had a nice little balcony. The bathroom was spotless, too. The only "complaint" would be that it's right in the middle of everything, so it's pretty noisy at night outside. Don't... More
