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

This ultra-budget guesthouse is on the third floor of a building located on a side street about halfway between Puerta del Sol and the Prado. My wife and I stayed there for three nights in September. Our room was quite small, as expected, but spotlessly clean and freshly painted. It came with a small private bathroom with a shower. Air... More

Firstly, scratch up on your Spanish, or have google translate with you because the owners English was as good as my Spanish. We got by and had a laugh doing it though. The rooms are fine, clean, fresh, everything worked. The w/c's are pretty much 'in' the room so it isn't very private if there are two of you but... More
