The hotel is fantasic for more reasons than one. The location is good the air conditioned rooms are clean and homely with a fantastic helpfull service making our weekend break truly relaxing. The location is fantastic being just a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of madrid with local markets walking distance allowing you an insight in to the... More

I stayed three nights at this hostel in the end of November 2014. Very good location. My room was not huge but it was enough for one person. Room was cozy and clean, housekeeping every day. Also air condition but it was not working during the winter time. Own bathroom, wifi, french balcony, a view to the inner yard. During... More

I was told that anything that sounded that good in that area was a joke. Well, the joke was on the other person. It is that good. The staff is so accommodating with arrival times, storing things for us between Madrid and Marrakech, that not speaking Spanish was not a problem. Their website was not working properly, so I had...

Staff was really friendly and flexible! Location was good, really close to the Prado Museum and Parque del Retiro, and a short walk to Plaza Mayor. The neighbourhood was lovely, with narrow streets full of bars and cafés. The only thing I'd point out is that the walls are paper thin, so if you're after privacy it's not the right... More

We loved our five day stay at Hostal Jaen. It was in a perfect location mid-way between the centre of Puerta del Sol and the museum area (almost literally a straight walk to the Prado on the right and the Thyssen on the left once you reach the main road perpendicular to Calle Cervantes, a five minute walk). It is... More

Slap bang in the centre of the Barrio de Las Letras on a quiet little street in walking distance of some great bars, museums, cafes and attractions this place is clean, friendly, characterful with wonderful owners who treat you as guests in their home. Do not expect luxury or to speak English and you won't be disappointed. Surprisingly good value... More

Surprisingly nice rooms and it's a really great location. We stayed in a room with toilet and shower for half the price friends payed for a hotel down the road (and ours had a lot more character ;-). It even had a flatscreen TV and wifi, if you want to spend any time in the room rather than enjoying the... More

Would defo recommend hotel to anyone on a budget, 90 euros for two nights an absolute bargain. Room spotlessly clean and served purpose for just getting our heads down at night after a busy day sight seeing. Added bonus that hotel in great little neighbourhood with dozens of places to eat and drink.

Suprisingly lively rooms hidden away in a back street in a great location. Not hard to find and central to many of the tourist attractions. We stayed in two rooms, with and without toilet.. both were nicely decorated and clean. Great hidden gem in the middle of a big city.

I stayed at what is now called Hostal Jaen, at the same address in Madrid, so I assume it's the same place. It is an excellent choice for its price. It is located in the Las Letras section of Madrid, where streets are narrow and historic (this one is on the street where Cervantes lived and died), and where one... 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.
