We stayed for three nights in is wonderful little hotel, perfectly placed in a quiet side street just 100 metres from all the nightlife you could want and walks g distance to the three art galleries. It was spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable and very reasonably priced, as well as having free WIFI. Our host, Javier, could not have been... More

We could not have been happier with our accommodations in Madrid two weeks ago. This hostel sparkles with cleanliness and is as charming as our hosts, Javier and Antonio. We were only sorry that we were not going to spend more than three nights in Madrid. They even provided us with sunny, clear weather! It was a perfect reunion destination... More

Javier and his brother Antonio were so gracious and helpful, they made us feel at home immediately. The hostal is located near Atocha and all three great museums. The rooms are comfortable and clean. I would recommend this hostal highly to all my family and friends.

If you are looking for a hostel where you wouldn't be embarrassed to take your mother then Hostel Gonzales is an excellent choice. This hostel is classy and sophisticated. It is run by two brothers. Their personal oversight over the hostel and its guests is filled with caring and absolute professionalism. I stayed for two nights in a twin-bed room... More

We frequently visit Madrid. We have stayed at Gonzalo several times over the last five years and now consider it our home in the city. The hosts, Javier and Antonio, are kind and helpful. The location is perfect. Many reviews have noted its proximity to the Prado and Thyssen, but it also an easy walk to Retiro, our favorite urban... More

Another rave review of Hostal Gonzalo. I live in Spain, visit Madrid yearly, and this is where I'll stay from now on. Javier is the perfect host; enough attention, not too much. Madrid can be noisy, but I like to be over the street, to see and hear the life of the city. But the curtains are so well designed,... More

We took Rick Steves advice, plus read the reviews here, and hit the jackpot with the Hostal Gonzalo. Hard to imagine a better host than Javier. His e-mails were prompt and friendly and he more than lived up to that in person. The hotel is perfectly located in the museum district, which is a 10 - 15 minute walk from... More

Hostal Gonzalo is superbly situated near tourist sites, being within walking distance of Museo Prado, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, and Museo Reina Sofia. It is also near the elegant Paseo de Recoletos, Paseo del Prado, and Parque del Retiro for leisurely strolls. Our room and public areas were spotless. The building and our room were very quiet even though there are a... More

Located near the Prado, walking distance of Plaza del Sol, etc. Clean, quiet, gracious decor, very reasonably priced Manager Javier made a point to touch bases with us after we arrived, gave us good advice on local transportation options, made us feel cared-for.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
