Worst hotel i have ever stayed on. We went there as a group. Many of us got money stolen from the rooms, while they were getting cleaned. The light in the room didnt work. Neither did the aircondition. It was a terrible place.

The best of the place is the location, near to Retiro, Reina Sofia Museum, and the Train Station. You can go to any of the turistic places walking and also the Street Atocha and Santa Isabel are amazing, plenty of good places to eat.the neighborhood is plenty of life, dont miss it!

Firstly, the staff was helpful, helpful, helpful. I needed to have some urgent mail sent here, no problem. We checked out and left something behind, front desk emailed me and had the item in the mail a few days later. The parking fob didn't work? No worries, here's access to a different lot. Secondly, the room definitely didn't feel like... More

Our stay at Hostel Martin was extremely pleasant. The staff were helpful and friendly and the price for what you got was remarkable. After staying in many hostels that have cost more per night, this place was like a 3-4 ★ hotel! The bathroom was nice, the beds were comfy and the air-con was fully functional! This is a little...

I am coming to the end of a three week European holiday and have stayed in many hotels/hostals over this period as you could imagine. Hands down Hostal Martin is the BEST one. From the initial checkin, the staff were pleasant and accommodating. The room..was well beyond our expectations. For 46 euro a night this should be classified as a... More

Small but adequate on suite rooms. Clean and tidy recently refurbished rooms with tea and coffee making facilities which I have found unusual for Spain. A 23 € taxi ride from the airport and less than a 1ml walk (uphill )from the railway station. A metro station is half way up the hill if walking is a problem. From the... More

Nice quiet and safe. Good location, courteous staff. The neighborhood can be a bit seedy in some areas. Homeless junkies and sex workers running in packs on some parts of Atocha. But they will leave you alone unless you try to mess with them. The hotel itself is very nice and a great value. I would recommend this to anyone... More

A clean, comfortable hostal at a reasonable price. Staff extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Centrally located for all museums and galleries, close to Metro (Anton Martin) and near Atocha Renfe for trips out of the City. Good basic breakfast - I would definitely stay here again.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
