Returned to Hostal Santillan after 4 odd years and was happy to see that they still live up to their good name. For people looking for a decent place to put their heads - Santillan is a perfect choice for value, locations, cleanliness and service.

Stayed here for the first time in May 2014 for 3 nights. Room basic but very clean. A little noisy since the building is old and the other guest tend to slam their doors. Very cool old elevator in building. Location on the Gran Via is good. easy to walk to main attractions (Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Royal Palace).

We went to madrid in november 2013 my husband and i. The location of Santillan Hotel is great, located in the madrid's center, Grand Via and surrounded by restaurants and bars. Rooms are clean and ok. Just one negative thing: the staff don't speak English but that wasn't a big deal. Enjoy!

Hostel located in center of Madrid well within walking distance of major attractions. If you rather take the subway, there are two stations close by. We did not need a rental car since we were able to travel to and from the airport via the subway system.

I was sleeping in the hostel for 3 nights close to Madrid Marathon. Good location and room was ok for a runner. The only thing which I disliked was a smell of cigarettes that owners were smoking, as my room was next to them.

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...
