Lovely hostal hotel in the heart of old Madrid - excellant location - small but very clean rooms - somehow we managed to go out and leave the door open to our room - not a thing was touched - very safe! Shower was very small - we are short but of average weight and could barely get into the... More

Perfectly located on Arenal Street walking distance to everything important in the center of Madrid. Very clean, separate twin beds that can be put together, but very comfortable. Nice staff. I speak spanish so, but I saw them handling english speaking guests. Very clean,excellent eating just downstairs everywhere. Will go there again hands down.

We stayed in Madrid for a weekend at the Hostal Oriente. We booked it due to the many good reviews and were extremely happy with the spacious and quiet bedroom, the beautiful view from the small balcony and the friendly staff. The room had recently been renovated, we liked the modern furniture and the contemporary urban look of the room.... More

The hotel is safe and clean with efficient reception staff. It’s no frills, there wasn’t really a hangout area but the location is unbeatable and it was kept very well and was safe and had free wifi. I would definitely return as it’s a good base when you are off wandering the city. Cheap too.

Next to opera building, right in the center of Madrid. Near to metro station. Clean, very reasonable price, helpful and friendly stuff. Although we were a three (with 4 year old child) the room has a plenty of space and it was very comfortable. If you are looking for clean, comfortable, central place with a reasonable price; dont miss it.

When it comes to location this hotel simply cannot be beaten - it is absolutely perfectly situated in the heart of Royal Madrid, with the Opera Metro stop only 50m away and the lovely pedestrian street of Arenal at your fingertips as soon as you open the front door. Each man on the reception desk was friendly and helpful (happy... More

This hostels a gem. I should nobody tell. Is has a very good location and a most reasonable price. Nice staff, somewhat old-fashioned rooms, but quiet and clean. Good shower. As ever we did not have breakfast in the hotel. On the other side of the road there was a good cafe for early risers. If I want to be... 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.
