The pluses: Excellent location, a minute's walk from the Puerta del Sol, which is the heart of the city and a major metro stop. Friendly, helpful front desk staff, all of whom spoke English. Tastefully designed room with a comfortable bed and large shower. Reasonably priced, and no surprises when it came time to pay. Some room deals include a... More

I loved the location in the charming area between Puerta del Sol and Plaza Santa Ana. It´s just perfect. Price was reasonable and good value for a clean and functional room and a good nights sleep. Breakfast was included in a rustic genuine restaurant a few blocks away, simple but sufficient and picturesque. No window and no working WiFi in... More

The reviews by others are very much correct and right to the point. The Hostal is truly within a very short distance of a very active Madrid area and the area is lively. I had a single room, it had you needed from a nice bed to good shower facilities, It was not built as a hotel so indeed the... More

Ugly from outside, lovely from inside. Vey close to center and rooms are very clean, modern and fully equipped with everything you ll need. Space is just right and receptionist are all very helpful. Only thing is that you hear what is happening in the room next to you the rest it s 5/5.

The hotel is very centrally located and within walking distance of all the main sightseeing attractions,restaurants,bars and shops. We stayed in room 219 which was small... More

What a little gem - so glad we found it! Tucked away up a side street just off the Puerta del Sol, entry is via a slightly tatty looking staircase, and you could be forgiven for thinking you're in for a disappointment - how wrong you would be! The whole thing looks freshly refurbished - decor is smart and funky,... More

It doesn't matter how many times I stay here, I never get bored of the place. Just meeting all the staff again is enough of a reason to come back. They are all so wonderful. location is perfect! Very close to Puerto de Sol square! Good Recommended place! :)

Very convenient but in a seedy neighborhood. Room was large, clean but dark and poorly lit. Almost impossible to read. Staff was very helpful. TV had no English channels. Our room faced the street and noise from cafes and occasional drunks continued to 3-4 in the morning. The hotel is actually on the second floor and required an ancient elevator... More

Don't judge the outside! Nice, clean, modern, cozy interior. Nice view of the streets from our balcony. On our first day we walked all the way to Retiro Park. Along the way we saw many of the featured attractions. Very very near to the metro station and lots of shopping to do. I recommend this place!

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.
