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!

Was worried booking this hotel as we usually book four stars, but the only draw back was that this hotel was difficult to find as there are two signs for it and it is upstairs. After the initial drama of entering from the old, worn and creaky lobby next door, however, the rest of the stay went smoothly. Small hotel... More

I found this hostal on Tripadvisor and booked it for 2 nights in June. It was just a stated, a real find. It was a little hard to find at first because the taxi couldn't go down the street due to the new king being in town. Also it is on the second floor so look up! Once I settled... More

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

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
