This is a small, boutique hotel located in the La Latina neighborhood which is a great base for your stay in Madrid. The hotel is charming, historic (with a glass floor in the breakfast room that reveals the foundations of the building from the 1200's). Our room was small but very comfortable with all amenities. Staff was very friendly and... More

We had a great stay here! The staff was amazing and helped direct us to the main sites to see. You cannot beat the location, steps away from Plaza Mayor, and right near a whole bunch of great tapas. The room was great, and had enough storage space and the the shower was really wonderful. We would definitely return to... More

It IS a lovely little boutique hotel, very conveniently placed for the Old Town of Madrid, five minutes walk to the Plaza Mayor. We really didn't have to do anything transport wise except walk easily around the Old Town and eat very locally to the hotel. So, location is fantastic if that's where you're aiming to be in Madrid The... More

We stayed in the Posada for 2 nights. From the reviews I had read on trip advisor I was sure we would have a splendid stay in a convenient part of Madrid. The location of the hotel is good and the staff was friendly and helpful but really that is about where it ends. We had a room in the... More

This restaurant, located in a busy area full of restaurants, is cosy, classy and food is both fun and tasty! The shrimp omelet was small pieces, on clips. Both meat, fish and not to forget desserts are very very tasty and in unexpected form.

I had to take a quick trip to Madrid for work. My wife joined me so we added a few days to be tourists. The hotel is on what initially looks like a small one way alley; it was quiet and most of the doors were rolled down. Once the sun sets that quiet street becomes the hotspot for all... More

I have never had a better stay in a hotel. The staff were incredibly helpful from beginning to end. I requested a room on a higher floor, admittedly on a bit of a whim, but it's well worthwhile as you get a better view across the rooftops (we were in room 301) and can watch the world go by with...

Have just spent 5 nights at this fabulous city centre hotel. La Latina is most definitely the best district to stay in and once you have navigated the area it is close to metro and also centralised enough to walk to all main areas of interest. Plenty of fantastic restaurants and bars in immediate area and would recommend the food... More

I'm actually surprised this hotel is so highly rated. On the positive side, the location is great and the staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly. I would give service at 5. The room itself however is more of a 2. We were given a room on the main floor which basically opened directly into seating for the restaurant next... More

Staying in La Latina

Neighborhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighborhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
