Stayed at Hostal La Plata for three nights in June. Received a very warm welcome on arrival. Hostal is one of a number of hostals housed in a large building. Found the room clean, not very large but adequate with en suite with shower. Cleanliness was maintained throughout and room serviced every day. Fantastic location two minutes from Gran Via... More

Location is very good , staff is very helpfull and friendly. I also like the style of the furnitures. Some people wrote that they are old. But for us it looks very vintage.However, there is no staff at the reception after 11pm and you have to enter with the doorman of the apartmant after that hour. The bad thing about... More

We stayed here for 2 days and I was hesitant staying in a hostal due to previous bad experiences however after checking in I was more than happy. Stayed in a family room with newly renovated bathroom, rooms cleaned daily and felt safe knowing noone can get in early in the morning without getting past the concierge. Close to everything...

So glad we booked here. The location is ideal. Rooms are clean and we felt secure. The service is exceptional as any question we had was thoughtfully answered. Camelia offered wonderful suggestions to enhance our stay in Madrid. Unfortuantely we do not speak Spanish but that was of no concern here. So thankful to be told of the easy affordable... More

I booked because of the location - central for all of the attractions of Madrid and the price. I will come again for the clean, bright rooms, great service and sense of security. The welcome was good and I got a sense of personal service from Camelia and Fernando. My new address in Madrid.

For its location and for its quality, Hostal La Plata is an ideal place to stay in the heart of Madrid. In Gran Via 15, a short walk from the station "Gran Vía" metro (line 5) and Puerta del Sol, with nearby bus stops and numerous shops, has to reach the main tourist attractions of the Spanish capital. This, coupled... 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.
