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.

This hostal was just as excellent as expected. Perfectly located in walking distance of the Retiro park and Prado and the other museums, in an neighbourhood with many good restaurants. Clean and calm room.

This was the second time I have stayed here. Just as good as the first time, clean, located close to the Prado and other museums. Also close to a wide choice of eating places. Not too far from several metro stops and just a block from the bus lines. Hosts gave excellent attention.

Staying here for the 4th time says a lot. It is my home in Madrid. Excellent residential neighbourhood but very close to so many good places- eating, sights, transport, public market (behind Anton Martin station). It is on the 4th level of an old building on historic Calle Cervantes. 2 blocks away is a strip of excellent authentic tapas/ cerverceria... More

Identified as a suitable option from the review in the Rough Guide to Madrid, further investigation on Trip Advisor confirmed our decision. We spent four nights here in August 2014. The room was simply but adequately furnished and spotlessly clean. Air conditioning, a TV and en suite were great. As so many others have pointed out the location was wonderful,... More

Stayed at this hostel in July 2014 after reading the great reviews on trip advisor, the hostel turned out to be clean and in a good location which is all you really need for city break. The only issues we had was there didn't seem to be anybody around to get some information about the city and things to do,... More

A charming early 20th century elevator takes you to this immaculate, well run, and modest (but neither dingy nor lower-class) hostal on the fourth (European third) floor of a nice old building just about 100 meters from Paseo del Prado. Ideal location from which to visit both the Thyssen and the Prado, each no more than a seven minute walk... More

I booked this hostal with advise from RIck Steve's Guidebook-really pleased with it all. Very reasonable, and lovely family running it. I had several email conversations about location, and directions with the owners, which they responded to almost immediately. I even had a package sent to the hostal, and it was in my room when we arrived. Location is great-I... More
