If what you want is to be right in the heart of old Madrid, this is the place! Just meters away from the Plaza Mayor and two minutes walk from Puerta del Sol. The hotel is located in a charming pedestrian area and close to lots of outdoor cafes/restaurants where to enjoy a good breakfast, meal, or drink. The hotel,... More

I have visited Posada del Peine several years and the whole Spain about 15 years. If you are searching very central location this is the best choice near Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol.

We will always stay here on future trips to Madrid. Price eminently reasonable. The building inside combines its history with thoughtful modernity. Bedroom comfortable, quiet, well maintained, and relaxing and with efficient and fully controlable quiet c/h. Wi-fi works well.

This hotel was situated in a perfect spot - close to Piazza Mayor and close to plenty of great places to eat, shop or just stroll by. The hotel staff was very nice and always had an English speaking person at the front desk. Everyone was happy to help and made our party of 9 feel comfortable. The rooms were... More

Consider this: on arrival access to the hotel is partially blocked by street vendors who periodically are cleared out by the police. On checking in the staff is monosyllabic and perfunctory. Our room was on the 2nd floor...on approaching it we were aware of the darkness of the hallway, the grubby carpet and the faint smell of disinfectant in the... More

Fantastic location between Plaza Mayor & Plaza del Sol. Ask for a corner room (ours was #102) which had 3 small balconies. Be warned though that it is very noisy into the night but loved being able to take in the streetscape from 2 different vantage points. Breakfast was adequate but only used it twice during our 4 night stay.... More

If you want to stay in soulless luxury, don't stay here. It's a brilliant hotel, full of character, with quirky touches, friendly, helpful staff and a brilliant location. The rooms are small, the shower is big and the extras make you feel valued. It can be noisy outside but, to my mind, that only adds to the character. My husband... More

Excellent central Madrid location within walking distance to all the principal tourist sites and areas. Besides a beautiful façade and good wifi, the hotel has little going for it.

Dear newtella, I regret so see that, appart from the location, you are not really satisfied about your stay with us. Restoring such an old building, was a big challenge, and maybe some solutions, like your bathroom, can not satisfy all our guests.
