Spotlessly clean, cleaned and towels refreshed daily. Very central for shops, bars and restaurants, a great little find in a lively area. Easy walking distance to Puerto del sol and plaza de mayor and much more. Would definitely return.

This great little hotel is very central. It is spotlessly clean and the rooms are of a good size. We were in room 102 and it was Saturday night. Madrid is a great partying town and people were eating and drinking through until dawn broke. Our room was directly above a great little tapas bar and opened onto the lively... More

Very lucky with this Hotel on a weekend trip to Madrid, located just off main shopping, dining areas, although the area is lively at night which may not be to every ones taste. Also within walking distance of Palace and an older part of Madrid. The room was spotless if a little small, only disappointment was breakfast but that's Spain!... More

This is a really important review. We have just come back from this hostel. Being cautious we always check out the fire exists and I was extremely worried to find the second escape route bolted and locked with what looked like a brand new lock when we arrived. I mentioned it to the reception when we were checking out in... More

This hotel was very reasonably priced, and it was in a great location in the Chueca district of Madrid, close to many points of interest. The room, although clean, looked a bit worn trending towards shabby. It looked as if it hadn't been updated since the 80's, and the bathroom was tiny. We had booked a room for three, and... More

It's a bare bone basic hotel, perfect location, very good for the peak season in a European capital. Very easy to find, walking distance to Plaza Del Sol, Plaza Mayor, El Retiro, Thyssen Museum, and many theatres. Carlos at Reception went out of his way to help me with my theatre ticket, etc. Nice place for a short stay in... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
