We (a bunch of 30 year olds) have just returned from a weekend trip to Madrid. The hotel was clean and tidy, as were the rooms, and at approximately £25 per night each, we were more than satisfied this hotel delivered on value for money. Staff were pleasant and accommodating. Location wise, the hotel is less than 5 minutes from... More

First what happened, then review of the hotel and room. I had a prepaid for reservation for Hostal Union for my cousin and I. We mistakenly went into Hostal San Lorenzo, presented my prepaid reservation and waited. They looked for, but didn't find our reservation. They did but informed us they had rooms and booked us in matching the price... More

My partner and I stayed in this hotel over the weekend for three nights. We chose it mainly because of the location and it was one of the few options of a cheap package deal that British Airways offered. I read the reviews and most of them aren't great so I had my expectations set really low. The room was... More

Easy to find just off gran via. Quiet area but near to metro, old town and pretty much central to all main tourist attractions and restaurants. Room was large for two people and very clean. Radio provided in room was a nice touch. Balcony doors give good light and really mute out the sound of the street. staff seem friendly... More

We ended up in this location after our 1st hotel didn't have availability and messed up our reservation. The price was excellent and it has an excellent location. Rooms are normal. Nothing fancy, very simple. It was fine for us for 2 nights.

Clean rooms, efficient heating and helpful staff. The location is good, but there is a lot of noise from the bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. Weekend nights are especially noisy, but on weeknights, you'll sleep well.

This hotel is cheap.... But you get what you pay for! The room was very basic with iron beds and hard mattress. There is no aircon and our room was hot and stuffy (in late September, can't imagine what it would be like in summer!). Opening the window was not an option as the rooms face over as busy square...
