Ideal location very near the Prado and Thyssen. (Right around corner from swanky Westin) Extremely clean, quiet, extremely comfortable mattress, excellent shower, even real art work on the room's walls.

Had one of the rooms overlooking the street. Not too noisy even with the balcony door slightly ajar. (Could have door closed and use room fan or air con if street noise bothers you) Room was clean, bed (two singles pushed together) was very comfortable and really good hot shower in the bathroom. The main attraction is the location, it's... More

Clean and comfortable if pretty basic. The front desk was helpful, especially the older gentleman. Central to everything; never had to use transit to get around the area. Within walking distance to anything we wanted to see. The only thing we would have liked to have was coffee in the room or at least in the lobby

Stayed here for 4 nights. The place itself was in an apartment building on the first floor. You must buzz in the first time you check in but receive a key to all doors. It is very cosy inside with a nice lobby area just like an apartment and nice clean rooms. Everyday the beds were made and bathroom serviced.... More

If you only got a small budget then this is the place to be. We have been a group of 3 and booked a Triple Bed Room for 2 nights. The location is very good, close to the Prada (~7min. walking distance), historic district, various restaurants and ~10min. walking distance to Atocha rail station. The room was cleaned everyday and... More

The hostel was very close to all the main sights in downtown Madrid. We didn't end up taking the public transport even once due to its proximity to major sights and the main train station. The hostel itself was clean and a decent amount of space for two people. However, if you are looking for an english speaking establishment, this... More

Nice and clean, my room 105 had a lovely view into a nice garden courtyard. It was close to all 3 museums: El Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza. It was a nice stroll to Plaza del Sol and nice places to eat. But my tip is to go to the local market and get fruit, goat cheese, cured ham and... More

This place was great for us- very simple, excellent location. It was a 5-10 minute walk to the Prado, 15-20 to the Reina Sofia, not too far from the Metro, very close to the double decker bus tours that we used for transportation to get everywhere else. We were myself (mid 20s) and my mother (late 50s) and she loved... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
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.
