We spent 4 nights in this hotel and loved the location. It is just a half-block off of Puerta del Sol, and within walking distance of all the major sights in the central area. The room was large, clean, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast, which is at a cafe around the corner, was basic but adequate. The water... More

We booked into this hostal via a groupon deal and when we arrived the room we were given was in between the laundry room and a storage room and had obviously been a storage room they had converted. It was awfull with no natural light, tiny and claustophobic. The shower was fine but the bed was so close to the... More

My wife and I stayed here on a week long trip through Spain in November 2012. We bought a Groupon voucher for a 2 night stay in this hotel. We followed the instructions on the Groupon to book the room well in advance. When we showed up, the guy running the front desk couldn't find our reservation and would not... More

On first glance up the street (Espoz y Mina) it looks a little shabby. However, once in the entrance things change. The 24 hour reception were very helpful. Our particular room was great! Air conditioned, WI-FI, mini fridge, 2 queen sized beds pushed together, sofa, plenty of room, a little balcony to people watch... BRILLIANT! Some people have reviewed that... More

We arrived at this Hotel unsure on much about it. When we arrived it was so amazingly central in Madrid, we could access everything. The Main Metro line 'Sol' was a mere 150 yard walk around the corner. The rooms were clean and the Air Con was great. A very modern hotel that I would recommend to anyone. Staff were... More

Good location, with just a few steps from Puerto de Sol, we are surprised with the conditions of the hostal. We took two rooms for 4 of us and both the rooms are spacious with nice black and white decor, clean with amenities including a mini fridge. The rooms and the toilets are clean with towels changed daily. Since we... More

At first it looked like some scary, dodgy, ally way hotel, but when you walk inside it is pretty cool. Good location, quite central, easy to get around. Takes on a vintage yet modern day stylish look. Bedroom was good sized. Interior was pretty nice through out the hostal. The man at the front service desk was really nice and... More

The hostal should be called hotel, because it felt like a 3 star hotel. The location is perfect, just a few steps from Puerta de Sol. The room was spacious and clean, towels were changed every day. As we asked for a quiet room, there was no noise coming up from the street in the night. The staff was nice,... More
