Great and generous place, kind and helpful staff and an amazing location. Somehow in thimble of everything yet still quiet and comfy for sleep. The place we stay had such an amazing view and was quick access to the heart of Madrid.

IF you know the difference between a 'hostal' and a 'hotel' and IF you book a double room (highly recommended) then you will be pleased by this place. Right in the city center of Madrid, with a very kind and helpful staff, and better than many of the competitors nearby. Good if you are looking for a place to sleep... More

I liked the cleanliness and the staffs inclination to help. The apartment was given to us instead of the hotel room. It was much bigger but the apartment was old and creaking every where. The beds were not comfortable and the bathroom too small. Hot water only for five minutes- when complained they said we used up 80 liters of... More

The hostal is just off the busy Puerto del Sol in Madrid so it's in an ideal location for sightseeing, tapas, and nightlife. Being so central, expect some noise from revellers, urban life and hawkers on the street below (some selling a particularly annoying toy which was everywhere). The room was clean and tidy - only one minor potential issue... More

I checked in around 10pm and was seeing a friend for a dinner at 10.30pm. They were early and I was getting ready so I told them to come up to the room – but I get a text message from my friend saying the receptions said no visitors allowed so my friend had to wait in reception for me.... More

Just back from a a few days stay here and absolutely delighted with the hotel. I got upgraded to a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, with kitchen on the 5th floor with a lovely balcony looking down into the narrow street below. The tourist buses, which I highly recommend using, stop literally a 2 minute walk away but to be honest... More

The place is small, but clean and friendly. The location is what you go for. You can walk everywhere from this location and the metro is 50 meters away. I would stay again for sure. The area is busy with shopping, places to eat and drink and wonderful sites to see.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
