Javier, (proprietor, concierge, Madrid insider and an all-around good guy) is cut from the cloth that created Nineteenth Century hoteliers. Never intrusive, filled with suggestions, attentive to his guests' needs, it was a pleasure having this gentleman as our liason to one of the world's great cities. Hostal Gonzalo is meticulously clean and scrupulously maintained. Our street side room reflected... More

Our 3rd visit to this Hostal. We had room 5 which is a twin facing the small courtyard. The room is very basic but the beds are very comfortable with fresh white cotton sheets and the towels were changed every day. It does not have a coffee machine or fridge and people might wonder why it is rated so highly... More

Hostal Gonzalo is a block from the Prado, and a 20-minute walk to the Atocha train station. Many nice restaurants within one block. Javier and his family were friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to store bags several hours after we checked out. Wifi worked well. Rooms were clean. There is an elevator to access this 3rd-floor hostal.

This hostal is on the third floor (but there's a lift) of an old street right in the centre of Madrid minutes from the Prado and the other museums. The position is fantastic, quiet, safe, with cafes and bars all around but in the next streets. Right opposite is a cafe which serves anything you might want for breakfast and... More

This place was absolutely perfect. The rate was great, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, and you are walking distance from all the main attractions. The staff was truly remarkable. Javier helped us with two major issues, including retrieving a camera we left in a cab and mailing back souvenirs we left in the hotel. All of his recommendations... More

Hostal Gonzalo is very cozy and is in the very heart of the city where all significant sites are accessible by foot. Javier who is managing the hostal was very very helpful. He's very patient with all my inquiries and responds to email promptly which helped us decide to proceed with the trip. When we got their he provided us... More

My wife and I stayed at hostal gonzalo in March of 2015. We arrived and were greeted by Javier, the proprietor. We couldn't have asked for a more congenial host! The hotel is a small establishment on the 3rd floor of a building in the museum district of Madrid. It was just a short taxi ride from the airport. We... More

The Hostel Gonzalo offers some of the best elements of a small hotel and a home stay with a nurturing family in the heart of Madrid. The hotel is contained within an elegant old residence with an atmospheric, old lift (elevator) and has clean, quiet, reasonably priced rooms under the care of Javier, someone who is very supportive of his...

Hostal Gonzalo is a very small and cosy place in a great location! The staff is really nice, but I must admit, we didn't have a chance to meet them very often. The room was very clean and we loved the small spanish balcony!

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

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.
