Don Juan Antonio has operated this hostal for over 30 years and it shows. He cares about his guests. It's not really what we think of as a "hostal for hippie travelers" but more like a small, well-run budget (for Spain and the Euro) hotel. You can't make reservations online. You have to call and give a credit card number.... More

Beautiful two floors hostal, marvellous antiques in every corner of the corridors, although the rooms are more basic (no A/C, which I guess will be a problem during Summer...) Very quiet, cheap rates, and in the heart of Chueca!

We stayed for two night, using three rooms - two with double and one with single occupancy. I have stayed at this hostal many times, and have always been very satisfied with the rooms, the situation and the price. I found that I could have found - because it was such low season - better rooms in better hotels and... More

Wonderful location, two blocks from La Gran Via, easy walk to most tourist locations or public transport to same. The small square it sits on has a lot of charm with plenty of small places to eat and drink. Well kept public areas nicely furnished with a great variety of antiques and quirky adornments. Rooms do need to be upgraded,... More

I stayed at Hostal Don Juan from August 20 - 25, 2012, and found it to be ideal... a very good price, centrally located, clean, very nicely furnished with many antiques, and comfortable, with a very friendly and helpful staff. Only a 20-minute taxi ride to the airport. I would recommend this hotel to anybody going to Madrid, and would... More

I have been staying in Hostal Don Juan since I started going to Madrid in the Mid 80s and am a regular visitor to the city. Don Juan used to be one of those gems typical of Spain, whose exterior tucked away in a dark alley and up some dark dingy stairs, belied a well kept clean spacious and beautifully... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
