Visited Madrid in May 2015 and stayed here. Location is superb for those wanting to stay central. Most of the popular places to visit are all within a 10min walk. Metro stations all around so easy to get to and from the airport. Situated of the main street Gran Via. It's clean, modern and has friendly staff. A great place... More

Very close to metro station Novisiado and to arrive from the airport conveniently. The staff is ok and breakfast is very basic, no fruits of vegetables. The location is good and you can walk to a lot of tourist sites and shopping areas.

We chose this hotel mainly for the price/location. We travelled as a family of 5 and finding rooms that hold 3 adults is a bit challenging. I was VERY worried about coming here, based on some of the reviews - but honestly we had ZERO issues. Do not listen to any negative reviews. It is a good hotel, with friendly... More

The room was nice and clean. We were not disturbed by other visitors and the staff is friendly. Internet does not work and you should stay well clear of the breakfast unless stale bread with cheese is you favourite. Otherwise a very nice hotel.

Nice little room with a good bathroom. All hours service in the reception. Elevator and stairs. Good cleaning. Breakfast was the same every day with white buns, toast, sliced sausage, sliced cheese, fruit, cereal, coffee and juice. It becomes very dull in a couple of days.

I booked this hotel for my parents’ first trip to Madrid. The booking was made and confirmed two months in advance and when my family showed up at the hotel (4pm local time) they learned that the booking was cancelled the very same day they arrived (while they were travelling 11 hours across the Atlantic on their way to Madrid)....

We stayed on the 6th floor in a spacious room which was clean and quiet, on the courtyard side. staff were very polite and helpful, on one occasion we... More

Hotel Sterling has a great location, very close to Puerta Del Sol (10 min) and subway (5 min). The rooms were medium-sized, but clean and comfortable; we got a room with a window towards the side alley and it was pretty quiet. The breakfast was okay but could have more variety (other hotels farther away from the center might offer... 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.
