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)....

My husband and I returned to the Sterling hotel for a second time, we had been very pleased with our stay the first time and were not disappointed on our return. 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

I stayed in room 108 with my mother last week and we both agree that if we come to Madrid again we would be more than happy to stay here again. Location, fantastic. Couldn't have wished for better. We walked everywhere we wanted to go in the city quite easily. In a minute from leaving the front door you are... More

This is a good value for money hotel. Perfect for a short city break where you will be using the hotel just as somewhere to lay your head. It's nicely decorated with a stylish fresh smelling reception area and lifts to all floors. The rooms were basic, clean with adequate facilities. ( No tea/coffee making facilities was a disappointment though).... 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.
