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

I have been staying regularly for at least 10 years now. Its a very friendly, clean budget hostel. Located in a prime position for visiting Madrid. Highly recommended

I stayed here for 3 nights (March 29th to April 1st) and thought it was a super place. My room (a single) was small but very clean, comfortable and quiet. The location was fantastic: right around the corner from the metro (Gran Via). The staff was very kind and generous. Do note however that they are only there during certain... More

Tucked in an ally just near the Gran Via, this hostal is a) safe, b)affordable, and c) warm in the winter. It is also d) tiny, e) thin walled, and f) has problems with taking VISA. All in all my experience here was par for what the cost was. I didn’t really like the thin walls, but I think my... More

There were three of us so we had a twin room and a double room. We just showed up and were lucky enough to have the last two rooms available. We were very glad since the hostals on the plaza de carmen down the block were all booked up. It is true that you have to walk by the dozen... More

I had to travel to Madrid as my job requires me to travel a lot, so I'm used to search for cheap and centric hostels. In this case, I was lucky to find such a nice place in the historical centre of Madrid, at a great price! The room was pretty clean and had a LCD TV, a/c and fridge,... More

We just turned up and asked for a room and we found the owners very friendly and helpful - would definitely stay there again. The hostal is on a side street which might seem a bit scary at first but it's right near the end of the street which comes off the red light area and there were always loads... More

A family run hostal, it felt like we had our own apartment, we were given keys to the room and outside doors so we could come and go as we pleased. We took the shared bathroom which was okay, the shower is a little small by north american standards however. The room had a nice balcony, a small fridge and... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
