I didn't know what to expect as this was a last minute face-face hotel but from the outside I was expecting a 2* hostel. It surprised me, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and didn't seem racist at all unlike with previous hotels we tried to kip at. The showers were very nice and the bedrooms were clean and...

Nice clean rooms in very convenient location for an amazing price! Overall extremely satisfied. The owners were very helpful and provided us with map of the city and gave suggestions. Also allowed us to leave our bags after check out.

I am torn on the score as in the past I have liked it far better. The rooms are simple and small, many have balconies to the front(these are far noisier with noise from people outside all hours though far worse from about 1am to about 5am). All room have a private bathroom with shower only, a small refrigerator, and... More

This place had everything we were looking for: good location (right next to the metro stop), comfortable beds, clean room, private bathroom, lots of light, very affordable price, quiet at night, helpful staff and a bonus balcony. Sure on the corner near the hotel are some unsavory characters but they are no bother and the restaurant next door was my... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and we have been happy both times. The property is right downtown, clean and the owners are very helpful. The rooms are small but so is the price. We will stay here again.

I give Hostal Aliste an "excellent" rating not because it was perfect, but because based on my research and experience, it is the best overall hotel value and experience you'll find in the city center. The location was ideal -- an easy walk to the palace, the numerous art museums, the park, and the many plazas (full of great shops,... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in July 2011 and we enjoyed the stay. It is right near almost everything in Madrid and all was within walking distance. The Gran Via Metro station was just a short walk away and we used it to go to/from the airport. The management was very nice and helpful and spoke... More

The hotel was nice and the staff was friendly. I believe the family lives up stairs so they are always around, which is nice if you have to check out early or come in late. But I didn't think they were the easiest to work with because they weren't at the front desk a lot and I felt bad having... More

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.
