Hostal Acapulco located off Plaza del Carmen is a very well run establishment and I highly recommend it. This was my second visit and both times I was able to sleep well, an issue for me in Europe. The rooms may be small but are immaculate and very quiet despite being in the center of the city. The 24 hour... More

This small hostal (hotel in Spain) is located on the 4th floor of a classic old building just a block off of Gran Via, the main drag in Madrid. It has a small lift. It is about 5 minutes from the Gran Via metro station and about 10 from Sol, the main square. The main train station is a couple... More

The place is lovely, quiet, and convenient. It's off a plaza that's out of the way where car traffic is mostly not allowed, so that's a good thing. The floors are marble, the beds are exceptionally comfortable, and the water pressure is pretty decent. Great value for the price. But the best thing is this: the people here are so... More

What a fantastic hotel. I would not call this a hostal at all. Beautiful building, lift in building, central heating in hotel. very comfortable beds and pillows. We had a room facing the beautiful square and it was very quiet with the double glazed windows and shutters. Great bathroom and towels and the room was serviced daily. Amazing location close...

After traveling a few towns in UK and Europe, we fell in love with this place and appreciate even more the facilities, friendly host and excellence location. Difficult to get facilities with the price we paid here. Strategic location to move around in Madrid, near enough to walk from one location to another, yet in a corner that is quiet... More

We stayed in Madrid for a few nights in November of 2014. If I had to sum up our stay at Javier's place in 2 words, it would be: AWESOME & CONVENIENT! Right from the time of making a reservation till the time of departure, we had only positive experiences with Javier and his team at Hostal Acapulco. Javier's responses... More

Thanks to a friend I found the Hostal Acapulco. It just could not be handier to the old core of downtown Madrid. From there we could easily walk to the oldest market, San Miguel, and surrounding sites. Tapas at the market were delicious and the atmosphere was amazing. The hotel was spotless and full of character with marble floors and... More

I discovered Hostal Acapulco on Tripadvisor and it did not disappoint. The hostal is easily accessible from the local Metro which you can catch directly to and from the main airport. The tourist information bus has a stop only minutes away and Puerta del Sol is only a short walk. The staff are great and will help you with any... More

Lovely clean room overlooking the square with a bottle of cava in the room on arrival. Ideally located in central Madrid close to Puerto del Sol and Metro. Easy walking distance of the major attractions with friendly and helpful staff. I cannot fault it. Will definitely stay there again on next visit to Madrid.

We loved it here! A nice clean room with what looks to be a newly remodeled bathroom complete with bathtub and shower. We also got a room over looking the square with a little balcony. The location was great just a few minutes walk from Puerta del Sol (with access to the metro & cercaina trains and 'La Mallorquina', a... More

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.
