good experience, good rooms, great location. Would go again. Not much more to say you can walk to most of the tourist destination as well as good shopping in the area. Lot of restaurants and cafes and bars. Go wild ;)

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week in March. Our own quaint room and bathroom cleaned as requested was perfect for our needs. This is not a hostel for young people looking to meet other travelers (no common area) but rather more of a budgeted small hotel room. Perfect for enjoying Madrid (great location!) and feeling like you... More

I went there with my girlfriend and stayed in Madrid for 8 days. We only saw the people from the reception once because they were on a different floor, anyway, there was no need to see them because the room was always perfect. Once we needed an outlet because in Europe they are different and the owner lent us one... More

Terrific location on Gran Via in 1930s building that's been beautifully restored. Note review title: it's a 5-star Hostal and isn't pretending to be a 5-star hotel. Office is on 8th floor and our private room was in a dormitory-like area on 5th. We were mostly struck by the location, spotless room, and pleasant management, but travelers concerned about safety...

Just back from 4 nights in Madrid. My boyfriend and I booked a last minute stay at Hostal Santillan. We were a bit wary considering it is deemed a 'hostal' but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Our room was plenty big and spotlessly clean with an en suite and a little balcony... More

This was one of the best hostels I've stayed in and felt much like staying in a hotel. The rooms are situated on the 7th and 8th floors of a centrally located building on Gran Via. The room and bathroom were clean and bright. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Hostal Santillan was a terrific base for my solo trip to Madrid. It has a central location on historic Gran Via, a very friendly and courteous staff, and clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. A beautiful building, with stain glass windows and pretty elevator! It made me feel very much at home in Madrid. I definitely recommend staying here!

Hostal Santillan is really in the perfect location on Gran Via, one of the most important streets in central Madrid, right across the street from the Lion King, with Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, ATMs on the same block, and several metro stations nearby. We could walk to most anywhere we wanted to go in Madrid, or easily take public transit. It... More
