Easyish to find it has a very central location. I bought a tourist travel ticket for the metro but didn't end up using it much as most places we could walk to. Right next to gran via there was plenty of shops and restaurants around and was at the centre of everything. The room was very good. We stayed in... More

This is s great little hostal right in the centre of Madrid. The Ritz it is not, but clean, comfortable and friendly. All the main tourist attractions on your doorstep with bars and restaurants close by. Lots of gay nightlife in the area too.

A fantastic place to stay in central Madrid. The rooms are a reasonable size with small yet perfectly adequate bathrooms. Considering Gran Via is a few metres away and there are lots of shops, bars and Chueca outside the door, the rooms were incredibly quiet. For the price, you don't really get any better than this and the owner and... More

Hostal Sonsoles is not a luxurious hotel, but its location close to Gran Via metro station is extremely convenient if you want to visit the center of the city. The street the Hostel is on is a commercial pedestrian street, filled with cafes and shops. The Hostel is clean, silent, has all the basics, and reception is 24h a day.... More

A nice and cosy place, very close to Gran Via and just around the corner of Metro and Malasaña. Very friendly management, with minor problems with english speaking :). As it is central, it is not in an extreme quit surrounding.

Located just off Gran Via and on a pedestrianized shopping street with tapas bars nearby - this is the ideal location for a base in Madrid. We arrived on a Friday evening and set out on a tapas tour. The neighbourhood was really buzzy and we took in approximately ten tapas bars but were never more than five minutes walk... More

During my visit to Madrid I stayed in this great hotel. It is located right in the city heart, within walking distance to all the main areas of interest of the city.

There are so many hostals/pensions with hotels of every description from the humble to glitzy 5 Star properties in Madrid it's always good to get a trusted recommendation.

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
