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

Simple rooms, air conditioned, spotlessly cleaned within walking distance of the Central part of Madrid is what you can expect. We stayed here and walked to the Prado, Plaza Mayor, subway stations, the royal palaces and places in- between. There are plenty of restaurants and tapas bars nearby as well.

We booked through booking.com using the same credit card that we always use without problem. We arrived at 8pm to be told that our room had just been given away to someone else. They claimed that as it was 8pm and we hadn't arrived yet, they tried to take the money from our account but it was declined, and as... More

Family run, you will often find Javier's and Antonio's parents there, small rooms, immaculately clean, worth every euro for the location (Tyssen, Prado , Reina Sofia ) and hundreds of small restaurants in this gentrified part of very old Madrid. Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Quevedo, Gongora all lived in this neighborhood hundreds of years ago. Try to bar across the... More

For those looking for basic accommodation in the centre of Madrid, this is an excellent choice. Within easy reach of the Prado, restaurants, bars, tourist buses shops and Atocha station, it has plenty of character and is kept spotlessly clean. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

A party of 5 stayed in 2 rooms May 2014. Javier and Antonio were both extremely helpfully with directions and eating recommendations. The rooms were spotless. The hotel is ideally located, being just minutes from the Prado and only 10-15 minute walk from the train station/bus connection to the airport. Restaurants are plentiful and literally around the corner.

We recently stayed in a twin room with balcony, the air conditioning wasn't turned on however it wasn't a problem as we could leave the balcony doors open. The hostal is spotlessly clean and located in a wonderful old building. The neighbourhood feels like you are living amongst the locals rather than surrounded by fellow tourists. We loved the french... More

We stayed 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The 3 most important things to us were the location, cleanliness and Javier. The location on Calle Cervantes is ideal. We walked to Plaza Mayor, Royal Palace, train station, Prado, Reigna Sofa, Thysson, Reitiro Park, and numerous tapas bars and restaurants on Calle Huertas and Calle Jesus. Oh, and there is... More
