We just spent 3 nights at this hotel and what a great location! Situated on Gran Via, there are tons of cafes and tapas bars on your doorstep, and all of the main attractions are within walking distance - but if you get tired or want to travel further afield, the metro stop is on the corner just a few...

We booked this hotel 4 months ago for a week in May and got a pretty good deal for a place right in Gran Via. We got a bit discouraged due to all the bad reviews so weren't really expecting much.

We were able to check in early. Staff was high average. A/C was awesome and atypical for Europe. We liked our room. The bathroom a bit on the smaller dose but old European style size. Car rental was a block and a half which was awesome. Location was excellent for metro and bus stops. I would come back.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights early in May 2015. The location of this hotel really is ideal, very central yet quiet (our room window gave to the back of the street rather than the main road) and close to many shops and public transports, including a Metro stop that will bring you to the airport.

We felt let down by this well known hotel chain. We had carefully looked at several hotels and chose TRYP Madrid Plaza Espana because it had large light rooms, which were advertised as such on their website, with attractive photos. You can imagine our surprise, after a lengthy check-in to find ourselves in two dark, gloomy rooms from which it... More

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
