The third time we have stayed at this Hostal. We have always found it very welcoming. Staff always very helpful and nice. Very clean. Good continental breakfast. Excellent coffee.. Very central. Walk to most places in central Madrid. At times Puerta del Sol can be a little noisy at night, but a small price to pay for being so central.... More

The location right at Puerta del Sol was a double-edge sword. It is good to be near all the attractions; only 5-15 minutes walk. But the Spanish never sleep. We woke up several times in the night and there were still many people in the square and making lots of noise. It didn't help that there was no air-con, so... More

So cute and comfy. Great idea to stay here for a busy weekend in the city. It's easy to come and go and the location is perfect. You are right between two beautiful parks, museums, amazing food and drinks, and there is always some sort of entertainment right in the Sol Plaza

Plusses: situated right in the center, within walking distance to many sights (Prado, Opera, Plazas), room spotless, good beds, friendly and familiar atmosphere. Breakfast ok for 3 euros. Great chance to practise your Spanish since hostal personnel hardly able to speak decent English. Minusses: loud environment, so impossible to sleep with window open; strong smell of chlorex in the room.... More

Hostal Riesco was so cute, clean, friendly and excellently located. I will recommend this place to my friends and other travellers. It is located right on Puerta del Sol, two steps from the metro and yet on the corner of a quiter street. My room was bright, spacious and with an excellent wide compfortable bed. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our trip and were quite pleased with it. And it's great value for the money. I found the people on the front desk very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and spacious - our bathroom was quite small, but adequate. Everyone seemed to be aware that they needed to... More

Even at booking online, a big red message explained we had to be quiet. Little did we know how quiet. Yes we travelled on a lads' holiday. Yes there was a group of 10 of us. However, no we didn't spend any more time than absolutely required in the hostel and no, we didn't make any mire noise than snoring... More

We only had one night here, but it was a haven -- spotless, comfortable, friendly staff, and a wonderful location -- just a half block off the Plaza del Sol. We took the metro from the airport. It was a breeze. Although there's no wifi in the rooms, it worked well in the lounge/dining room.

We stayed at the Hotel Riesco for a long weekend getaway. It was perfect! In the center of town, right next to the Puerta del Sol, conveniently close to all of the downtown sights, restaurants, bars and the metro. We booked our room for 55Euros a night, and were so happy with our choice! The hotel is in an interesting... More
